The week began with playing a game using the ACW rules from Neil Thomas's "Wargaming and Introduction", then moved to the One Hour Wargames version, and finally to a variant of the two which I will be posting after I have written up my notes.
|A game set up and ready to play. I could not resist a black and white photo as I have been browsing Airfix Guide - American Civil Wargaming by Terence Wise since pulling out the ACW figures.|
|My current river terrain|
|Oil based pastels are used (not the soft caulk type)|
Here are some photos of the steps which took me all of 15 minutes.
|A light blue is drawn in random lines. A bit of fluff is generated when applying the pastel and is easily removed when all colours are applied.|
|Additional brown and green is applied mostly around the river edges and to help the river look a bit murky in places. Finally white dashes are applied (see next photo)|
|The final result with the white dashes added to make it look like a flowing river.|
|All ready for action|
