Modular Fence System

Just in time for the year end - done :-)

I covered all the green area thickly in grass. To stop the constant rain of blades of grass, I flooded the grass areas with wall paint primer. This hardens them and acts kind of like a glue that soaks into the greenery.

As a final step, I added some creepers to a couple of sections.

And here they are done, in their storage box, and a couple set up as an example.

As the year draws to a close, I am a bit shocked concerning the number of open projects I have (like every year), and especially this one as it is 1.5 years old... time to finish it.

I painted the rest of the sections, the edge sections were the last to be done.

I then started to apply the grass. It will not be one sort all over, but at least one additional one to my standard base grass. The first I applied is Ziterdes 12133 Alpine Meadow. It has some darker green sand in it as well as light brown rocks.

I did the first test section. I basecoated the fence in

  • AK783 Weathered Wood

I then added some moss by drybrushing lighty from underneath and around the posts where they meet the ground with

  • 70.968 Flat Green

The wood was then brushed from above with

  • AK787 Medium Grey
  • AK785 Middle Grey
  • AK784 Light Grey

I like the result and think I will go with that as the base colour, especially the half posts where the sections connect. I will vary the colour on the sections, like freshly replaced beams etc, adding washes here and there, but I think this will be the main colour scheme.

I finished painting the stones, then touched up the green.

Here a close-up.

Done :-)

Well... not yet, the main part (the fences themselves) are up next.

This project is sitting on my desk for too long, I need to get this finished.

I painted the to be flocked areas green, the sandy areas brown, the fences and path areas black-brown. The colour on the fences was only applied to soak the wood with cheap DIY store paints, rather than with the expensive model paints I will use to paint them.

The sand areas where then highlighted.

I then started to paint the pebbles and larger sand corns in two greys, which will then be drybrushed in the same light grey.

The edge sections are done.

The last type of section I wanted to build are end pieces, that only connect on one side to another fence section.

All the sections I wanted to build for now are done, next up is painting them.

The connecting posts and one of the edge posts are glued to all the bases.

I prepared all the edge bases, cutting them into shape and bevelling the edges.

I finished the last 6 straight pieces. One has an 8cm wide door (allowing 4 20mm bases abreast to pass), the other two have a 2cm wide door.

Next up are the corner segments.

The next six modules are done. These are all damaged to some degree, never thought that I would ever use a heavy hammer in my wargaming projects...

Only six more straight ones to do, those will get some more gates.
