A fellow colonial wargamer named Randy Fung, better known to some on TheMiniaturesPage as Rdfraf, based up in Fresno, California, built some rocky wood-chip hills using the method I've illustrated and described here several times over the past couple of years. Randy is one of the driving forces behind a longstanding Indian Mutiny campaign game which has been running for years, featuring beautiful armies, impressive terrain, and slickly-produced After-Action Reports. I've never met him, nor had the chance to see any of his troops or terrain in person, but hopefully I'll manage that some day.
Here's a LINK to the thread on TheMiniaturesPage where Randy first posted these pics...
MANDANPUR PASS 1857
...and here's a LINK to the Yahoo Group dedicated to the aforementioned Indian Mutiny campaign, which the Mandanpur Pass game was part of:
INDIAN MUTINY WARGAMING
Seeing these pics and then learning that they were inspired by work displayed here gave me a great feeling and put a big smile on my face, so thanks to Randy for sharing his efforts with the wargaming public!
See and enjoy for yourself...
