Battlefields In Miniature: Making Realistic And Effective Terrain For Wargames

Like a good general, a good wargamer should have an eye for the ground. Just as the nature of the battlefield plays a central role in real warfare, so miniature wargames are greatly enhanced by realistic terrain. Besides, when you've spent hundreds of hours collecting and painting your miniature armies, they surely deserve ground worth fighting for. Master terrain modeler Paul Davies takes the reader through the process of creating a visually appealing yet practical terrain system. First the techniques of making the basic landscape are explained, then a series of projects show how this can be adapted to suit different periods or geographic locations (eg European farmland or Sudanese desert). There are then detailed chapters on adding vegetation, buildings, roadways, trench systems etc. The clear, step-by-step instructions are clearly illustrated by numerous specially-taken photographs of the work in progress and Paul's inspirational finished pieces.

If you're interested in making wargaming or diorama terrain then this book is worth a look. Some things I knew and some method I've been using for years, but there were other elements that I hadn't heard of or even considered before and I'm certain I will use some of them in the future.

Whether your building a war games table or train layout, these simple tips and ideas are perfect.Easy step by step ideas that look awesome when complete. Worth it!

Its great for what it and great for preteen children is but to be honest, I didn't get anything really out of it at all, If you are prepared to do the work there is more realistic terrain guides on Youtube for free. To be fair it depends on how good you want your terrain to be.Having said that its perfect for my 11 year old son.

This is a really handy guide with practical insights into some great terrain. I've only delved into it but even the sections I have read have been really good and got my thinking what project to tackle first.

Excellent step by step coverage on how to make your war game table come alive with realistic landscapes and accessories while remaining workable within whatever rules you use.
