Making Fences

Another job I have been meaning to do for some time is making fences that I can use for my wargaming table. In this tutorial I will walk you through the process of making fences for 10mm wargaming. 1. The first step is to cut your bases to the desired size either using MDF or hardboard in my case I used hardboard and cut it to 1 inch wide by 6 inch long once you have cut your bases to the desired size you then want to proceed to rasp the edges to give it a smoother appearance. 2. The next step is to texture your base. I have done tutorial on basing . 3. The next step is to cut your car repair mesh to the desired height and length. 4. The next step is to paint the mesh in Humbrol No. 67 Tank Grey and dry brush with Humbrol No. 110 Natural Wood and allowed to dry. 6. The last and final step is to glue the car mesh onto your pre-cut and textured bases using a glue gun.  Tools Pencil Tape measure Wood saw Rasp Paintbrushes PVA Glue gun Mater

Making Walls

Making walls is an easy guide to follow. Another piece of terrain scenery I desperately needed for my war games table was Walls however to buy commercially manufactured Walls tends to be rather expensive and I was not prepared to shell out that sort of money. After giving it some thought I came up with the idea of using N gauge railway ballast and to be honest I am rather impressed with the results. I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Walls of all types have often played important roles on many battlefields. Sometimes they can offer shelter to troops that can get to them first, but they can also affect the movement troops.  1.
