Or, More Fun with Rubberised Horsehair.
Ok, it's a tight squeeze with my big ridge tents. Time to buy some renedra bell/dog tents...
I used two large vehicle bases I grabbed on a whim from Warbases at Salute. I'm a sucker for paying a quid to save me the time it takes to draw out and cut my own shapes and I've also found that the mdf is much less prone to warping. These were really easy pieces to make, I just sandpapered the edges, built up some height using wood filler and leftover cardboard and coated the top in PVA and sand. Once thats dried, I painted it with two watered coats of emulsion and wash/drybrushed to achieve the right colour. Then just rip/cut the rubberised horse hair as before, tease into bushy clumps, dab on the same stone-coloured emulsion and hot glue gun it onto the base.
With the KRRC manning the defences - they were built to fit an eight-man tray.
