River Ford

Not one of my projects, but similar to one I've done.  Mine is not done yet, and this one is, so I'll post it so you can get an idea of what we're doing.

The local game store carries a selection of items from Pegasus Hobbies.  This particular piece is their Museum Models River Set.

You get about 4' of river.  It is painted plastic.  The water sculpting is a bit odd, but it still looks good and is a steal at $20.

We found that to enhance the look it helps to give the dirt colored banks a wash of Citadel Brown wash.  It gives the bank more depth, and dulls the glossy finish.  A bit of ground cover on the bank really enhances the look as well.

A ford was added to one of the short, straight sections to create a crossing for our Song of Blades and Heroes Campaing we will be running starting January.

My friend Brian simply coated a section of the river in white glue, then placed some stones randomly in the river.  The result is a quick and effective method.

The glue is still wet in these pictures, but it does dry clear and looks good.
