More Terrain (WiP)

Something I don't have any of in my 15mm terrain collection is hills, so I thought I'd whip some up out of whatever I have handy.

These are made from 50mm insulation foam, carved to shape with knife and rasp, and smoothed with a blow-torch. Then they're glued to 3mm MDF, and slathered with textured acrylic filler — basically just diluted ready-mixed filler with a couple of handfuls of sand mixed in. I realised after I'd mixed it up that I probably should have put some acrylic paint in with it, but I forgot.

The weather has taken a turn for the worse, so the texture coat is taking forever to dry. I really want to get on to the painting and flocking, but at this rate it'll be tomorrow at the earliest. Gosh durn it.
