We got stuck in pretty much straight away. Pelarel cut up about 15 feet of 3mm MDF that was one inch wide while the rest got together a metric crapload of matchsticks. The fences, as seen in the pics below, are intended to represent the split rail snake fencing common in American during the 18th and 19th centuries. The junior McBeths were tasked with making some terrain for our new magpieism, Frostgrave. After a trip to Spotlight, they set to work on their plans.

|Many, many fences|

|Brandywine. So says the Regiment.|
|Talk to it. Yes, the hand.|
|This stands about 12 inches high|
|More of a wave than a well known Germanic salute.|
Along with the fences, we made some scatter terrain for the woods, some roads (but need another 20 feet or so!) and started on some nice 4Ground MDF buildings.

|Trees! Baby Jesus!|
|Repurposed roads from Pelarels' collection. We will need several feet more of these to get the map looking right.|

When it happens to you, I can only say "you're welcome".
