It has been a very long time since I had built any terrain (back when I started with Warhammer Fantasy), and I am not very artistic, so I gave it my best shot.
While digging through some of my gaming bins, I recalled seeing some old W40K ruined buildings that I must have received from one of their starter sets. I had decided to dig these out and proceeded to glue them together. I also decided to shave off any 'skull markings' and 'imperial eagles' since I wanted to used these more for general gaming.

|Basing rocks/debris glued down.|
Up next I decided to build some 'area terrain' to represent the Woods (instead of the green felt we usually use). At the same time, I also painted the bases of the Trees to match the Woods.
|MDF all cutout and sanded for the Woods and Ruins.|
|Sand and Gravel applied to the Woods.|
|Base color applied to the Woods.|
|Finished product: Woods:|
|Finished product: Trees|
Now it was time to work on some Hedges, to outline some towns on the table and to go up next to the roadways.
I got the idea of making the Hedges from 'The Demo Gamers' blog. He goes into more detail on his blog on how he made them. I changed mine ever so slightly from his.
First we have the supplies. I went to the $.99 store to pick up some scour pads. Then we have some large craft sticks and super glue (I thought I could use the super glue, but switched to using hot glue instead)
|Round edges were trimmed off the craft sticks.|
|Scour pads were cut in half.|
|Folded vs. cut in half.|
|Glued and based.|
|Bases were painted the same shade of brown as the woods, and then drybrushed.|
