Quick and Easy Frostgrave Terrain Cloth

   I recently completed a gray winter-themed terrain cloth to use for my Frostgrave games.  I wanted to give it a hint of ancient cobblestones and a frozen feel to it.
   I found a great 36" wide mottled gray felt to use as my base, and bought 4' of it.  I then purchased a round silicon trivet (for use in the kitchen) that has a hex pattern on it, and a large black ink stamp pad.
      I cut the trivet into random shapes, and laid out the cloth on one of my gaming tables.
      I then randomly stamped "cobblestones" here and there on the cloth, trying to keep the general orientation of the hex pattern all pointing in the same direction.
      After I stamped the cloth, I then sprayed it randomly with white spray paint followed by accents here and there with Tamiya Medium Blue (Navy) spray paint.
     Here's a close up of how it looks.
    And here it is with some terrain and figures set up on it.
    I'm very pleased with the results.  It gives me the effect I'm looking for at a fraction of  the cost of a commercially produced gaming mat.

    1. Thanks! I had always looked at them, thinking there must be a gaming use. I'm glad to have finally thought of one!
