Those undoubtedly will come in handy, and will add much more variation to the board with minimal effort (read: you make that look easy  ;) ).

They look pretty good already.  Are they to be used on this board only, or will they match another table you already have?

Thanks, Daeothar!

I'm getting to the point where I need to stop mucking about and just start painting.  As for easy....  the toughest part is getting all the necessary stuff set up.  Once I have all the materials, and a good place to work, and the correct tools, and the right weather (I'm working outdoors for safety and to control the mess a bit better) - so once everything is in place, then it's just a matter of getting on with it.  I wouldn't have been able to do all this in my old apartment!

My tables before have simply been a felt sheet (a Hotz mat) with various terrain bits placed on it (or under it on occasion to make hills).  Once painted, the hill tops will be usable on my old gaming sheet as well.  Due to the right-angle shape, they'll best fit in the table corners.

Weekend update - I've started painting, so no more photos from me until the final.

I finished work on my entry a while ago, but I've spent the past week figuring out how to photograph it!  I've sent in a photo to Hammers, so that will have to do.

Looking forward to seeing all the entries in all their glory!

One of the challenges you fellas doing large pieces face will be getting a photo you are happy with. I am sure it looks awesome I am eager to see it.

Thanks, Codsticker.  The photo ended up being a bit of a compromise!  The 'one single figure' is almost lost in the overall photo  :) I 'm looking forward to the end of the contest, so I can show off all the work that was done after I started painting and vegetating the boards.

Will - I also had some difficulty with the photo using a single figure, but once i got it it was pretty dramatic.  Looking forward to seeing the final results

Cheers, Pete.  I'm really looking forward to seeing your bridges - once this contest is over, I plan to build rope bridges on my terrain so it can be used for NWF or other locales and eras!
