It looks fine James!  8)

Just read your blog post and it was a bit of an ordeal but worth it in the end methinks :)

Great end result - no idea why the colour darkened up so well overnight - but it got to the right look.

Edit: And with the canvas off cuts, hills.

Hi guys,

well, the saga is now concluded because I'm out of canvas - unfortunately. I would have liked a bit more to try some other stuff but at least I have my playing surface, rough ground and now, hills.

Here's my blog post, step by step, on how I made hills with canvas tops. Very stylised and not my usual fare but well suited to the job in hand. Vis a vis - for To the Strongest.



I think these hills have a certain sartorial elegance, if I dare say so myself. Not everyone's cup of tea I know but it brings back memories of a certain war game book gone by.

Anyway, hope you like the idea, and perhaps the how to do cliffs simply and cheaply might be worth a look for the newbie. Link to step by step:

Best,

James

Having now had the privilege of seeing this mat in person (and also the wonderful games room it sits in), I have to say it was well worth the effort, James. You did a great job there, must have been a bit of a worrying time, not having done it before, but the end result is excellent.  :-*

It was great to meet up and chat.

Thanks for the tiles, as well!   ;)
