This desert layout was my first attempt at terrain boards (the mark one’s). All five boards were fashioned from a single sheet of 50mm thick Styrofoam. The roads and various depressions were cut into the foam boards before painting and flocking. A variety of road layouts and table sizes can be achieved by arranging the five boards (3x 2ft/4ft, 1x 2ft/1ft, 1x 4ft/1ft) in different combinations. The light weight Styrofoam, although stronger than Polystyrene doesn’t handle the knocks that well, so some repair work is occasionally required.
