:bowty: The docks are perfict Dano. I like the broken plank look. It's probably most realistic giving the location there at in Stalingrad.

The trees I think will be just what is needed. Just enough room to still place your pieces with out any problems and in a group of hexes will look good.

Thanks for all your efforts.

I know you have tons of time and always want ways to better your hexes so I found this, for your water hexes

thaks again for the link! I did view it, and bought a few supplies. The first set of hexes will be more of a murky river with little to no waves. these are in a 3" hex, and they come two hexes glued together to save a little time. I painted these a murky dirty color, and let that dry. I then added a thin layer of clear sealant. The clear sealant is drying at this time, and I should be able to add a little white cap or something to show some movement. The clear sealant goes on white and dries clear. this is about 1/2 the cost of the woodland scenic material. I'll have some final results tomorrow.

again, thanks for carrion for the link, and suggestion. I hope to expand on this a little more.

I like the look of those, add some detachable flockish and call them swamp hexes as well, looking sweet. Now that I know it works I will start some of my own in the future :-)

update... I'm happy with the process, but I need to find out one more thing. two days after I completed the first set of hexes, the sealant is still a little tacky. I noticed one of the ships I had on the hex was sticking to it a bit. I'll have to look for a different type of sealant, or maybe try some dull coat???

Found this new video that tests out a few sealants for water effects, hope this helps...
