Mel Bose – The Terrain Tutor – has been building terrain for almost as long as he can remember. When he was five, Mel built playsets for his little green army men in the corner of a craft store. He was often assisted by model railroaders who were regulars at the store and, by the time he turned 15, Mel was primed for a life of building terrain. Mel has traveled the world, as a medic in the army, a physiotherapist, and even a salesman. He has worked with people from all walks of life, and looked at things from many different perspectives. It is this approach that he brings to his successful YouTube channel, The Terrain Tutor. Since 2014, Mel has made a living from sharing his passion – teaching people everything he knows about building terrain for tabletop wargaming, for hobbyists, clubs, displays, and for dioramas – and it’s that passion and knowledge that he is bringing to this book.

Autumn Forest set
The Autumn Forest set contains three pre-painted Trees, with removable orange Canopies, a Stump, and a two-sided neoprene forest floor Template.
Use the trees and stump on the template to represent an area of Woods or a Forest in your game. Or scatter the trees on your table to break line-of-sight and provide cover.
The double-sided template shows a leaf-covered forest floor on one side, while the other side depicts a small pond.
