Re: Wallpaper Background Strip for Hordes and Heroes and WW1

Hello everybody! Today I have been having my first attempt at creating some background scenery for my kallistra. I have found an image, blown it up in a drawing package to fit on 5 A4 sheets. Laminated it in three parts using A3 laminating sleeves, selotaped the pieces together and then stuck some c...

Re: First Battle of the Marne

Hello, Thanks for the post. Yes putting a cloth on top of kallistra is a really good idea to create the land forms if you don't use hex rules and measure the distances. The photos are really impressive and seeing the hexes underneath high lights the thought that has gone into creating an accurate to...

Re: Model Water

Hello, Thanks for your post. Yes there are a good range of varnishes available that could give some interesting effects for model water. In the last couple of days, I have purchased vallejo water texture and applied it with a brush to my frozen rivers. It is a white, fairly thin acrylic gel that goe...

Model Water

Hello again! Just doing a post to discuss model water. I have painted some of my rivers a lighter shade of blue and they have lost that nice shiny glaze that kallistra adds when manufacturing them. I am considering adding a glaze of model water on top - clear and still. I note that there are several...

Re: Modelling castles

Hello again, While on the subject of modelling castles I thought I would do a post on my castle with a moat created with single marsh / swamp hexes and some single green flocked hexes. It is suggested in the H and H booklet that a castle can be raised above the level of a surrounding moat. Also that...
