Last week my wife and I started a Ghost Archipelago campaign; for anyone interested I already wrote up a battle report here. Unfortunately that game showed me just how small my fantasy terrain collection really is. The prospect of playing a campaign on a half filled table didn't sit well, so I got to work. A few hours over a couple of nights yielded good results. A couple of winter pieces for regular Frostgrave even made it into the mix. Unfortunately I'm out of snow at the moment so they're not quite done.
Hiho, to add some variety to the gaming table and depict some smaller shrubs I wrote a tutorial detailing how to go about making shrubs and brushes for both 15mm and 28mm. I went for hazel bushes this time as they have a distinct bark and also allow to decorate the bases with some hazelnuts and squirrels ;). A step-by-step tutorial and plenty of pictures can be found on my blog: Squirrly Goodness â€“ Making Hazel Shrubs for 28mm and 15mm Here is the final result:
Buglips posted his tid bit about Juntos and that brought to mind that with winter cleared out it's time to prep for summer landscaping. This summer marks the beginning of our second year in this house and we are going to get neck deep in changing the front of our house to something much more pleasing and not so overgrown from the previous owners. Below is a picture of the front of the house taken before we bought the place. My kids and my buddy are busy painting the front porch. Yes, before I owned it we had to paint the porch and the foundation. It saved me about $7,000 on the price of the house in the end so no complaints here. Currently, there are MANY bushes out front surrounded by sun-bleached mulch that house starlings (or a pseudo-sparrow) that feast on box elder bugs living in the walls and/or under the porch out front. Once we remove all of that shrubbery, the plan is to place two Dwarf Burning Bushes or Purpleleaf Sand Cherry Bushes (which do something similar to the burning bushes just not as red and hold their color longer) and a mix of two or three flower bushes. Especially my old one if I can find any around here again: It's such a cool looking EVERGREEN plant. It's not a typical fir style bush but it stays green all winter. Looks great. Mix those bushes in with some mulch, some wrought iron hangers for hanging plants, a variety of planters, scatter some bird houses about and we should have a rocking front landscape.
