|1/4 hill. The profile on the edge matches the other three.|
The first tiles I worked on were four grey, flat pieces. These are suitable for ruins, a spaceport or a city. A few years ago I got a gallon can of grey, textured paint for five dollars out of the bargain bin at Home Depot. The paint has sand mixed with it. Not only does it give a rough texture to the foam, it has good texture which I'm hoping will dry brush well.
|There are four of these.|
The next tiles I'll work on will be the two ridges and a single tile with some contours built into it. After that I plan on three with low hills and a stream in them. The final few tiles will be a river. I'm a little nervous about the river so I'm saving it for last.
I'm loving this project. I've been dreaming about this table for years. It's very satisfying to finally be working on it. I've also found a source if inspiration on the Architect's of War blog.
