My plan at the weekend is to create enough scenery to cover our small living room coffee table for a small 5-10 vs 5-10 skirmish involving the outskirts of a small farming community. At the moment the list of things I need to create over the weekend are as follows:
Various sizes of wheat/crop fields, using the cut up door mat method
Sections of track way/ dirt roads from vinyl floor tiles
Paint up the Dry-stone walls that I nabbed off ebay
Create some CD sized forest pieces using twigs and pan scourers.
Base up some of the aquarium plants I have for undergrowth
Paint up a cheap towel to use as a gaming matt similar to what's used on the Last Chance War blog (http://lastchancewar.blogspot.co.uk/)
