The event at hand is going to take place at Siege of Augusta, in Augusta, GA in January. Like running a convention game, a tournament is a whole new ground for us. Sure, we have played in multiply Flames of War tournaments, but we never ran it. And with this mind, this only leads to one thing: more terrain! Sorry to my lovely wife, but that is what happens to new events. It always leads to new fun projects. I feel a little rushed, since we were only recently told. In my own ideal setting, I would like to use only my terrain for the whole tournament to match it in quality. This might be on the path of the slighty insane. However, I contacted several fellow gamers to borrow some terrain mats. As it turns out, except for two mats, I made them all! So my insanity is not so far out of reach for a first time tournament.
So about future terrain, I would like to make at least two, if not three, new mats made of Teddy Fur. I have been using teddy bear fur almost as long as I have been gaming in 28mm. The great thing for me is the ability to quickly bring extra life to terrain on the table top. I have my basic teddy bear fur mat like below.
Because of the coloring of the light bulb and the not-so-awesome camera I was using, the last picture is closer to the actual color of the mat test. I am satisfied. Now to apply it to my next mats!
