    If you want to make terrain you need a foam cutter. You do not have to have one to make terrain but it will certainly make it easier.

    All you have to do is cut hill shapes out of foam and put flock on them. then paint it in different shades of brown. An oasis would also be cool but i don't know how to do that exactly

    hope it helps

    well, you'll need dunes. So maybe you can get pieces of foam or polistyrene blocks, use a hot wire tool to shape them and then cover them with sand( with some watered down pva on the base first or the sand wont stick :p). The sand you should use must be fine, very fine as the sand in the desert it, its more of a course dust :p. If you need pics for inspiratioon, you can e-mail me... I live in the middle east, there is no shortage of desert :p.

    Cheers

    stacks are always good in desert terrain as well (theyre the desert equivalent of trees, in game terms). to make these all you do is snap some polystyrene stick it on a kebab skewer. then use a hot wire cutter to shape them, cover these with watered down wall filler (ive found that its best) and whilst thats still wet sprinkle sand over it. then paint in a sand colour.

    a Wadi works well too basically its a dried up river bed so a bit of foliage in the bottom with sand a couple of potholes take some dried up twigs, stick these on a base then you have a group of dead trees to add to the banks.

    canyons are always good for a part of the battle field.
    take some 50-100mm thick sheets of polystyrene cut them with the hot wire cutter smooth these down on the edges cover in sand in the same way as the stacks and paint in the same way.

    the best way to do stacks for the sake of building them is not to break them:

    note: i made the terrain in the above picture, but the table its on is a modular board, 2' squares from www.battlescapes.com and i made the terrain before i saw the board it was to be pictured on and that terrain was mailed to battlescapes, and he allready had the table made. (it just means i matched what he had without seeing it in person)

    dunes would be just your sloped hills
    sand to get a fine looking sand, just buy a gallon of Masonry Paint, it has sand added and is a good basecoat for foam so spray paints on eat it.
    here is some desert styled terrain i have made for a friend and some that was sold.



    these bottom 3 pics, the sand was with a spray paint called "fleck coate"
