Some basic terrain pieces are required for The Pz8 rules;-
These can be downloaded and printed off onto card, from their website, if you wish. I, however, fancied having a go at building some that would be more visually appealing.
To start with I tackled the trenches.
I chose to use 60x20mm mdf per-cut bases. This is the correct width for the grid squares and narrow enough to allow a bunker as well as wire to also fit in the same square if needed.
To simulate the trench lines I had a bit of a brainwave! Visiting Hobbycraft with my wife I found some self-adhesive foam sheet for 79p.
I first cut this into pieces 60x10mm.
Then I cut this through the middle (lengthways) with a pair of my wife's special "crafting" scissors that cut a slightly curved edge Zig-Zag line - see pics.
Next I stuck the two foam strips 2mm apart to create an impression of a trench line.
The base was textured with a mixture of sand and PVA and Vallejo Pumice.
Finally painted and weathered in acrylics and with flock added I'm really pleased with the end result.
Next I need to think how to simulate wire at this scale ......
