First things first then, hedges!
These were done by taking a green scouring pad and cutting it down to size (each bush uses two cut strips stuck side by side), spraying it black (which just darkens the green) then coating with a watered down pva and flocking. I'm not sure how the flocking will hold... Could do with a spray on adhesive to put over the top if anyone has any suggestions?
and then the ubiquitous ****tail sticks to make a fence. These are cut in half short ****tail forced into some carboard and then two long ****tail sticks messily glued onto them. The base needs painting round the edges (or reflocking) but it doesn't look too bad. Just a bit big
Next on the agenda - Hills. As soon as I can find some polystyrene/foam...
edit: just noticed the language filter has gone to work
Few other small things. I did these walls just with UHU (all purpose glue) and some typical driveway stones. The bases need finishing off and i'll probably sprinkle a bit of flocking over the top too.
Next thing on the list was some simple "rough terrain" (for half movement) so.. I cut out a random shape from mounting card, covered in pva, sprinkled flocking on and then poured grit (the sort that you get for small pet birds to sharpen their claws on) all over
I picked up a load of balsa wood from HobbyCraft last night so maybe something more exciting will be forthcoming Shout when you want me to shut up.
they look good.
I love the rock things, feels like a gritty trench, so to make it more dirty add on snow/grass/ash to fit its envirnment, than it will be great (I know you planned to anyway so thats great).
Thanks for the replies I've just finished my attempt at a dirt-track (plenty of those around the Old World, very few real roads).
This was done by taking mounting card and cutting it into long strips (or corners) about 3 models wide, painting the outer third on both edges in a dark brown then adding a lot of white and painting the middle part in a lighter brown - to show the walked on areas.
The whole thing was coated in PVA and sprinkled (more round the edges) with flocking and then grit. After that had dried I trickled a watered-down solution of pva over it to seal it in, give it a bit of a sheen and spread the flocking out a little more.
Corners and the like were required too:
and another angle:
the side of the card still needs painting but that'll only take a minute.
Very nice. They look great. Keep up the good work.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
Good job. Looks great for first time terrain.

No chasm yet Just done the two woods and have three hills in the making.
The woods were done with mounting card pvad onto some normal thick card (from a stella box). Pva over top, apply grit, liberal flocking, wait to dry. Then watered down pva over the top which seals it in and partly gives it the light/dark patches you can just about see.
and the other one (yeah, I need more trees. These were the only four I had)
your getting a little bit better.
little advice, ignore me if you allready did this but the pics you cant tell.
add all your stones and gravel to the base before any flocking, vegetation grows on rocks ect. not just under them.
Note: "NEVER" paint your ground green for under your grass.
another reason is to paint all your ground first avter the gravel is on. and paint it as "if" your never going to flock it. that way it looks like dirt.
then flock and when your flock wears off your dirt patches will show natural as dirt does.
here is an example:
and the last pic you should be able to see the advantage of Woodland Scenic's trees, better and more realistic trees, and they are removeable from thier bases for both storage and manuverability of troops. i just reccoment using a 5 minute epoxy to affix them to foam or superglue to wood.
If you want a good hill, theres a good article in the scenery section of the articles.
