The Rommel Operation Brevity scenario required some sea tiles. These are impassible to troops and vehicles but artillery can fire over them. I decided to go with the 13cm square tiles from the BigRedBat's Shop again, no concerns here about placing bases on the tiles as noted above. I have used up my original order, so a second order was placed. This should cover my needs for 10 further mountain tiles and some wadi tiles. Should be then good.
Again I used Elmer's Wood Filler as the base; this really is excellent stuff, it is quite cheap and workable. I tried to put a double pattern in with straight horizontal lines to represent the beach and curved lines to represent the water. I used both Citadel and VMC paints. It was pretty simple and I like how it came out.
|Stegadon Scale Green base highlighted with Sotek Green|
|Highlighted with Citadel Temple Guard Blue|
|Highlighted with VMC Sky Blue|
|Highlighted with VMC Pale Grey Blue|
|Final highlight of Citadel Scar White. A border of very fine sand was then added , had to remember that this was 1/285 scale. Once I get the polyurethane out to do the bases, I will apply some to the water.|
