After a very long delay I've posted some pictures of terrain and the lead pile. December has been very quiet on the painting front because a good friend of mine took ill and died. It was a complete shock and he did not suffer too much. However, as they say life goes on.
Here are some pictures of river sections I painted with the help of my kids. I didn't want to spend too much on terrain but didn't want to use blue felt because I dont like the look of it. I was looking at one of the blogs I follow http://smallworldproductions.blogspot.com/ blog and the guy used these hexs for roads and rivers. So you can basically create your own multi-shape roads and rivers. They are a bit rough and ready but do the trick for me!
Here are some with a ruler to gauge their size.
I also bought some other trees from my local hobby shop a while back, these can be seen on the far right - they aren't too good compared with the modelzone ones.
Below is the lead pile and below the lead pile is a batch of three french line units partially painted.
