Whether for placing at the start of a battle to represent the war-torn terrain, or for replacing pieces destroyed during the battle, craters are a useful addition to any gamer’s collection.
While there are many shapes, styles and sizes available to buy, making your own is not only easy, but also fun! You can customise them to fit the rest of your scenery, and decorate them to look like particular pieces (see also: Ruined Pill Boxes).
There is a new tutorial for how to create your own craters from paper mache, which walks you step-by-step through the process.
This simple technique, using recycled materials, can provide you with plenty of craters for your table, and somewhere for you soldiers to hide!
