My rivers are from JR Miniatures. The main reason I decided to use rivers from JR miniatures is because of the variety of pieces and scales they offer. My plan is to use a combination of 6mm and 15mm scales to model different size rivers and streams. The downside to these rivers is I can’t stand how they are painted. To remedy this I decided to repaint them to my liking. Below are some before and after images. Tell me what you think.

I will need a lot of trees to properly model a 19th century American battlefield. For that reason I decided to use pre built trees from Woodland Scenics. I feel that pre-built trees are more durable than the ones that you build yourself and besides I hate building trees. Unfortunately, pre-built doesn’t mean war game ready. I still spend quite a bit of time cleaning them up (removing excess foliage and gluing down loose foliage). The trees that I use will range in size from 2” to 5”.

Rail fence is a vital part of the Civil War battlefield. For my refight of Bull Run I will need around 25 feet of fence. That’s a lot of fence! I went with Battlefield Terrain Concepts 15mm snake rail fence kits to meet my fencing needs. I also plan to mix in some rail fence from Musket Miniatures.
