One thing that is ensured to modify the dynamics of a wargames battlefield is a river. A lot of gaming systems have some idea of dangerous terrain rivers generally fall put bang into the center of that certain classification. In various other words, if a river splits your table in half, then the game is likely to wind up all being about one side crossing the river and the various other trying to repel any river crossings. There are many methods you can develop terrain around a river - is it a wooded river valley? A high sided rocky gorge? A gentle rolling plain? Is there perhaps a hamlet there? Whatever way you decide to set out your terrain around the river, the best kind of river to have is a sectional one. That is, the river itself is composed of a number of pieces of terrain that could fit together in different methods. I 'd suggest you 'd want straight pieces and gentle curves - that means you could modify the layout of the river and other terrain on your video gaming table between games. Rivers constantly create intriguing games in my opinion - even if they are fordable, there is always the chance of losing troops and equipment in the crossing. If they cannot be crossed like that, and you have a bridge - then the game will likely turn on taking that bridge or defending it at all prices.

Rivers can be made with accordingly cut and painted sections of MDF or hardboard, making use of cut polystyrene foam, acrylic decorators filler or similar to make the banks. A coat of gloss varnish will allow for a good water result. Alternatively, you could use any of the professional water effects that you could buy, made particularly to utilize in making wargames scenery. A thin layer of this looks very efficient. Add some small rocks in the flow of the river and usage filler to make the foam of water hurrying round them - let your imagination run wild! If this all seems like too much effort, you can get prepared made river sections that simply require painting, or in some cases even ready painted too.

Whatever means you go, I 'd recommend adding a river to your wargames scenery collection.
