Miniature wargaming is a three dimensional hobby, so it is only right and fitting that it be fought on three dimensional fields. Over the course of the last couple of nights, I put together a couple of hills, and here's how I did it. These are all pretty basic techniques, so if you've been wargaming for years it's probably safe to skip the words and just enjoy the pretty pictures.
First up, the general contours. We start with standard bases. On the right is a blank CD. On the left is a 3/8-inch thick precut wood shape bought for about fifty cents at the craft store. Instead of another round or square base, this one uses a football shape, for a bit of variety.
