A few weeks ago I made some prototype hills just to work out how I wanted to do them. The intention all along was to make a large batch of foam hills to fulfil my gaming needs for many years to come. With the arrival of a new batch of XPS Foam, I set about the task of cutting, sanding, painting, and then applying the static grass. The whole project took just a couple of days, most of that being drying time.
|Enough hills to give me plenty of terrain choices|
The build was so simple, and low cost, that I decided to make a very short tutorial video on my work process. If you have wavered over making your own hills for the games table then this short film will show you just how easy they were to make
For those that are interested, here is a list of the raw materials I used and a cost for the whole project.
500ml Bottle PVA Glue £2.00
2x200ml Tubes Burnt Umber Artists Acrylic £4.00
