Rock/s and Roll

I created some more rock piles/rocky/rough ground (rocks made from cellu-clay), stands of vegetation that can stand in for elephant grass (long grass-like plastic aquarium plants), and based some old conifers to add to my old tree stands. All bases were cut from mdf board.

The vehicle is a steam tank I made from a plastic Mott's applesauce container (molded to look like half a barrel), some mdf board and pine wood, a dowel, a wooden peg from the craft store (for the smokestack), a button, some gears, a washer, and a plastic stick from some old toy (for the gun barrel). Here are some closer shots with a 28mm Foundry figure for size comparison.
The top and bottom are not glued together, but have a dowel and hole so the top can be rotated.

As far as gaming goes, I've mostly been playing boardgames and card games this summer, games such as Wrath of Ashardalon and the Lord of the Rings card game, as they can be played solo as and when time and energy allow.
