Welcome To Lazarus

Instead of a "BANG", humanity is passing away with the shuffling of dead feet, and hungry moans. Desperate men and women fight against the rising tide for the newly risen dead.Sometimes, though, the undead are not he most dangerous things out there. Civilization has failed the test; the only thing left is survival.

Lazarus is just one of many places where humanity holds on by a thread, and life and death come as easily as a roll of the dice.

15mm Hedges - An Idle Mind At Work

Something nice and simple this time around...

I was fiddling around, trying to come up with, yet another, an easy way to make hedges.  Yes, things like this are what I do when my mind is idle.  Here's what I came up with:
15mm Peter Pig Marines, and an Irish Serb HMMV for size reference.

The bases (there are 3 pieces in the pic) are made from a Sintra like plastic, painted earth tone, with Woodland Scenics lichen glued to them.  The gate is from a pack I got at a convention many moons ago for $1.  Upside is that they were cheap; made with stuff I had on hand, and easy; longest time block used was figuring how to paint the plastic bases, as the paint didn't want to stick.  The down side is that the lichen seems very fragile, if you will.  Because of that, even though I will make more of these pieces, they are not something that I would travel and play with.  They will be strictly for use in the hobby cave.

  3. I made some like that with the lichen, because I was doing the bocage. It looked great, but after a couple of years they were all pretty flattened from storing in a box. I still use them, but they aren't as nice as when they were new.

  4. Landorl, here's a though. Maybe you can spruce them up with a little Elmer's glue and some flock. Take an old brush and "paint" the lichen w/ some Elmers. Then, sprinkle on some flock.

    That might freshen them up a bit,a nd add some more life to them.
