Two figures from Wargames Foundry's Darkest Africa range wander through the bush.
4) Explorer's column.
Even more Foundry figures. The bamboo is made from small bits of plastic tube and pieces of plastic aquarium plant threaded onto bits of wire.
The cornfield is made in sections mounted on rectangular bases. As these are the same size as the figures they were made to be used with, some sections can be removed to allow troops to pass through it during the game. There are also some sections modelled to appear trampled.
6) Spiky bushes
These were created by coating a variety of objects, such as foam, rubberised horsehair and even sweet chestnuts.
The coating process involves spraying them black, then painting them with PVA and sprinkling with flock.
7) Various Plants
In the foreground is a fern with leaves made from cut paper (very time consuming). Behind it are plants made up in the same way as those in the previous picture.
8) Sikhs descend a cliff
Sikhs descend from a cliff-top village. The huts are resin. The cliff system has been built as detailed in this page.
9) Sikh advance
Indian Mutiny sikhs from Wargames Foundry advance up a hill.
The hills are polystyrene, shaped to fit together to make larger hills. The trees have wire stalks and are simply pushed into the polystyrene.
