I recently acquired some underlay material. We were moving house (again) and the removalists left some underlay with us wrapped around some furniture.
I remember reading somewhere that underlay was a useful material for use as a terrain covering though the consensus was it was best used buy draping over books of foam bloxks to create hils and then covering it with a terrain 'coloured' cloth.
I wondered if it was possible to simply colour the underlay itself.
What follows is a series of photos of my attempt at colouring underlay and using it as a terrain matt.
Here is what the underlay looks like without any alteration at all in contrast to a Warhammer Game Matt:
Finally I gave it an 'All Over' light spray of Army Painter Desert Yellow colour as a bit of a highlight.
I've discovered you can create some excellent hills by placing a couple of folded towels under the underlay.
As usual, comments are welcomed.
