Termite mounds

Lads,

Not only for Africa but also for 'Nam and other Asian tabletops, 20mm Termite Mounds

Basically some Das Pronto Terracota clay mounds – made by my friend Filipe – which I based on a cut down old CD/DVD, painted and dry-brushed, simple and effective.

Figures just for scale, from RH/Liberation painted as Portuguese Paratroopers, as these will see first some action in some Bush War scenarios

Thanks for looking, comments welcome

Looks good, I will give it a try when I do some more rivers. I use the clay to make the river banks so makes sense to give it a go at the same time.

This would be a nice, easy and very effective project to do to fill out some area of an Asian wargames table!

Nice work!

:good
