Making Scatter Terrain

by Mike
(Cross-posted from Behind Enemy Lines...)

Using the method I described in the Jungle Patches and Woods article earlier this week, I made up some scatter terrain using the same bits of foliage. This time, instead of using the larger bases, I put them all on small Flames of War command bases so that I could spread them out a bit further.

Making Jungle Terrain Pieces

by Mike
(Cross-posted from Behind Enemy Lines...)

When I was getting into Brown Water Navy for Vietnam, I knew I was going to need a lot of jungle terrain. It’s a rather iconic piece of terrain for the region, so I wanted to make sure I had a lot that I could spread out across the battlefield.

After looking around online I found some good tutorials out there, so be sure to have a look at those as well as this one and take the bits that work for you and your project.

Specific Pacific Terrain

with Mike
(Cross posted from: Behind Enemy Lines...)

The Pacific is finally here, which means I’ve got some terrain building to do! I’m one of those odd people who really enjoys a big terrain project to work on. Now that I’ve got a gamer garage up and running, I can finally take on some more ambitious projects, which is just as well since the Pacific is a unique battlefield from my typical array of European houses, hedgerows, and wheat fields!

As we anxiously await the arrival of the new figures, let's have a look and see what’s going to be needed to get some Pacific terrain rolling.

And We're Back!


Yes, it's been 6 months, but let's face it you've been having a great time without my ramblings! There's been some interesting changes in the wargame world, new games, new communities, new things to explore in the hobby. After some time in the wilderness, I've make it a priorty to get this blog back on its feet.

I've had a lot on in the last year but I've not been slack on the hobby front. Chief among my hobby efforts has been out podcast Behind Enemy Lines. Dan, Greg, Damian, and I have been pretty busy cranking out a fortnightly-ish podcast and blog, so a lot of my energy is going there.

The big news on that front is that we're covering the new upcoming Flames Of War expansion into the Pacific, a theatre I've been wishing for for over a decade. I couldn't be more excited to dive into that! You can follow that progress on the Behind Enemy Lines blog and check out the Flames of War: Pacific group on facebook. I'm doing a lot of reading and writing for the BEL blog, however I'll cross post my own articles here as well as they come up.
