East Riding Miniatures River Wedges Review


The river template pie wedges arrived from Tony at East Riding Miniatures today and I've been playing around with them on the workbench just to see how many wiggly shapes I can make. It's great fun! (I clearly don't get out very much). The wedges are the wavy edged variant in 30, 45 and 60 degree segments, so you can make tight or gentle bends very easily and also S shaped meanders.

The lasercut mdf sheet is slightly thinner than the main template sections but this will be sorted out when I texture them, so it's not a big problem. I'm very happy with this product and also with Tony's customer service which is second to none. I now just need to find another free weekend to turn them into an actual river for my desert themed terrain collection. I'm off on holiday soon so this will probably not be for a couple of weeks at least.

  1. Plenty of variations there. Neat idea.

    (I like the new header image, but the spacing between ships? Yikes! =) )
