Building hedges and other stuff

With my move to 28mm I decided to upgrade some of my terrain, starting with building new hedges from cork, furnace filter, and flock.

Here's how it went - I think the pictures tell the story:

Cutting cork base
bevel the edges

cheap furnace filter from Home Depot

hot-glued to cork base

cut to look hedgy

brown spray paint near the base

green spray paint the bushy part

spray adhesive and flock with dark green coarse turf

and some light green

mostly done - turf still loose

dilute white glue - spray and soak, repeat

finished sturdy product

And some updates on painting progress:

10mm command stands for Byzantine and Arab Conquest armies

Some new 28mm ruins

Another Warlord titan for Adeptus Titanicus

More 28mm Ancient Britons for Jonathan

A P-47 for Bolt Action air support - Academy models 1/72 kit

And a somewhat better weathered M-10 tank destroyer, this time using Vallejo mud 

And my last regiment of 1/72 French Line infantry!

  1. Hedges look great, Dave! I made some similar ones a decade (or so) ago with dish scrubbing pads - but the furnace filter idea looks grand. I may have to steal that if I ever feel the urge for more (or an upgrade!)
