Revamping the club terrain

Shocked Revamping the club terrain
OK everybody, I'm going to start revamping the clubs terrain. After discussions with Stuart, the initial idea will be to get us a series of woods and other area terrain.

The concept is similar to the battlefield in a box, where you get a base plates of various shapes and sizes, then place trees, rocks etc on the base plates to represent the type of terrain.

Having hopefully sorted trees out, what I could do with is quite a few rocks/stones for some hard rocky terrain. I intend to cut a few circles of wood out, and mount these rocks onto them, then you'll place two or three circles onto the base plate. The circles will probably be 4-5cm in diameter, and I intend to stick three or four rocks on each (or one large one.)

So as a request if you are out and about walking and spot anything that you think might be of use to the project, I'm asking you to pick it up and bring it into the club.


Thanks in advance,

Gareth.

Would pieces of slate help? My parents live in Cornwall and are coming up soon they could bring a few pieces up?

RE: Revamping the club terrain
I have just taken delivery of 100 (provided each bag contains the 50 it says,) trees. If you can picture the Battlefield in a Box, or my own personal gaming wood, the trees are of a similar style to those. Over the next few weeks, I'll start looking towards getting them based up ready for club use.

I have the trees. I got nowhere with cutting the hardboard during the summer. However most of what I need is sat at the house waiting for light/weather improvements.
