Well well well . . . How awesome is this. =) I guess now I just have to get around to taking decent pictures of the few terrain pieces I own and post them up. Man I like terrain . . . people think I'm crazy for making little trees, but it's so relaxing. I don't know if it'll be a few days or a few months :roll:, but eventually you'll see some of my work. Thanks Ava Mango Two and Pilsnermn and anyone else who was a part of setting this up.

A decent commander knows when to retreat,
A good commander doesn't need to.

Every now and then I get this urge to do some work.
Usually i sit down and wait till it passes.

Not a bad idea. Then i can get some new maps that way, or idea's on how to build new ones.
Stay true to the dream of the Kerensky's, now and always.

Any chance of a how-to on making modular buildings?

(Those you can take apart and rebuild to make new ones without breaking or cutting anything?)

I want to get into terrain...or at least a military complex display table for my WiP mercenary force of minis.

There really isnt a guide for a how-to on makeing modular buildings or terrain, most people simply use what they have at hand or hoard house hold junk. You can make buildings out of anything you like really it simply depends on how much time and effert you wish to put into them to achive that final impressive WOW factor, a few examples of materials to look out for are balsa wood, foam card, containers and lids of all sorts, spice refill cylinders even old computer parts the world is your oyster when it comes to scratch building terrain... :wink: zac
