My latest wargames terrain from Tesco.

Just come back from my weekly shop at Tesco with a new piece of terrain. Namely some coir matting for cornfields. The colour is a bit darker than I'd like but this one has some striations which I think will make it look more like a field of corn.

 
The mat is 39 x 59 cms and only cost £4 which I think is a bargain. The backing is some sort of rubberised compound and not too thick. So it should be easy to cut up into smaller fields.


I've got my second batch of 1/72 Brits for CoC painted up now and I should have the full force done by Monday. This should mean I'll have cleared the decks ready for my Dropzone Commander 2-player set which should arrive around 30th September. That is if I don't get side tracked by the 'An Age of Sword & Arrow' ancients rules that I downloaded after reading about them on Anatoli's blog.

I've dug out my 15mm Italian Wars figures which I'm going to split into two forces to give the rules a try. I'll post a review and AAR when I get round to setting my table up.

  1. Just give the mat a fine dry brush of yellow and the mat will really come to life

    1. Interesting. Can you recommend a yellow to use?

  2. Just for information, if Tesco actually run out (not much sign of it round here), you can get similar from Wilko's.
