My Falklands terrain is progressing, albeit delayed due to work commitments, however back in the swing now. I've been working on another Scaledale tin building, repainted and weathering started.

One of the Scaledale buildings repainted and based as well as a sheep enclosure finished.
A new book published at the end of last month, required reading if you're interested in the conflict, written by the commander of the RM Mountain and Arctic Warfare Cadre, Rod Boswell, and covers all the engagements of the unit down south.

Roughly 8yrs ago I made some Falklands terrain boards for a 10mm game I was organising for a convention. The boards in question were based around an engagement fought by B Coy 2PARA during the battle of Goose Green. Here's a link to the start of the posts, Burnside Hill Game
I'd put tracks on the boards in 10mm scale and I was never 100% happy with the terrain work, I had used static grass, the colour was ok but it didn't look right if that makes sense?
Because of my recent work in 20mm I decided to update them, getting rid of the tracks and redoing the surface texture. I got lots of advice from the below books which are definitely worth picking up if you're making terrain.
Here's some shots of the original boards
The tracks were filled in with sculptamold and retextured with Woodland scenics products, I'm much happier with the result.
Now for some reason the photo below is darker than the terrain actually is.
I'm also ploughing on with the buildings, here's a shot of the initial stages of the rusting procedure.

I picked up a few of the Hornby Scaledale buildings a while back, as well as some other scenery bits and bobs for the Falklands.
The Scaledale buildings are pre-painted resin castings, I'll be repainting and basing them maybe adding a little few detail additions as well. the first t3 are here and I'll be using them for a variety of engagements.
