One thing that is guaranteed to modify the characteristics of a wargames field of battle is a river. The majority of video gaming systems have some principle of dangerous terrain rivers typically fall slap bang into the middle of that particular classification. In other words, if a river splits your table in half, then the game is most likely to end up all being about one side crossing the river and the various other attempting to repel any sort of river crossings. There are numerous ways you can construct 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 opt to set out your terrain around the river, the very best kind of river to have is a sectional one. That is, the river itself is made up of a number of pieces of terrain that could fit together in different means. I 'd recommend you 'd desire straight pieces and gentle curves - that method you can change the design of the river and other terrain on your video gaming table in between games. Rivers always make for intriguing games in my viewpoint - even if they are fordable, there is always the possibility of losing troops and devices in the crossing. If they cannot be crossed like that, and you have a bridge - then the game will likely switch on taking that bridge or defending it at all prices.

Rivers can be made with accordingly cut and painted parts of MDF or hardboard, making use of cut polystyrene foam, acrylic decorators filler or like make the banks. A coat of gloss varnish will certainly create for a good water impact. Conversely, you could use any of the expert water effects that you could get, made specifically to utilize in making wargames scenery. A thin layer of this looks really efficient. Add some small rocks in the circulation of the river and use filler to make the foam of water hurrying round them - let your imagination run wild! If this all looks like excessive hard work, you can purchase ready made river sections that just require painting, or sometimes even ready painted too.

Whatever method you go, I 'd suggest including a river to your wargames scenery collection.
