The piece in the rear of the photo represents a bog or marsh type area. This started as a 30 year old Kibri Model Rail Road accessory that I have carted around for all of that time. I glued it to a blue piece of foam, added tufts of grass and a coat of artist gloss medium to make the shine of the "water" pop a little more.
The large piece on the bottom left started out as another Model Rail Road accessory that I picked up within the past year. This represents an impassable patch of rough ground if used for the "That's not on the Map" card or a patch of rough terrain if used as regular terrain. I glued this one to a thin piece of craft wood and then cut irregular edges to it with a saw. I then glued rocks, additional grass tufts and misc. to.
The third piece on the right is actually a small pond that I picked but from the Most Honorable Howard Whitehouse some 20 plus years ago at the first or second HMGS Midsouth Wargamers Reunion held in Tennessee. Here all I did was add tufts of grass, old wood and a fresh coat of gloss medium for the water
