Terrain board and 2mm figures

After 11 months, I finally completed my terrain board for my 2mm figures.

Here's a closeup of Gregg's Confederate brigade emerging from the woods of Boatswain's Creek to attack Warren's brigade:

There's 12+ posts in my blog documenting how I did it (and how slow I was in doing it). https://littleleadwarriors.blogspot.com ... -done.html

Siggian,
Having gone to your blog to see how you cut your contours and what materials you used, I can see why this been a long term project with other life events thrown your way, and sorry to see you lost your mother too.
You have a lot of patience cutting out each contour line but I think it works well, and gives the final board a good physical relief even though the thickness of your material is pretty shallow!
Great work.
CarlL

Thanks Carl.

If I do this again (and that won't be for quite a while, it would be for Antietam, because I have the II Corps painted for the Union according to the OOB for that battle. If I have been smart, I will have painted the opposing Confederate force (but it has been a long time since I painted them so I am not sure).

Half way through (and even later), I regretted doing so many contours. At first because there were so many of them, and then later because of how steep it makes some of the land look. But now I am finished, the exaggerated slopes help with the effect. It also means that I can use the board for 6mm and it won't look too far out of scale.
