My friend Greg has again offered to run a game at Hotlead! 2012, this year and like last year it will be Late war WW2 eastern front. We pool our stuff, Greg supplies most of the infantry, some of the vehicles and a bit of terrain, I supply some infantry, many vehicles and much of the terrain.
This year I am hoping to improve the look of my terrain, it is currently more functionality over visual appeal.
The thing I like best is my hills, they could look more realistic but they are sturdy and transportable.
My trees look OK, but I still need a more appealing way to delineate the wooded areas. Currently debating between these three methods.

I was preparing to make some stream sections, but I saw on TMP that HOTZ ARTWORKS has a felt airbrushed stream option, and since I was planning on making mine out of felt or craft foam, I bought $20 worth of their 3" wide option (11' should be enough) to see how it looks.
The Soviets weren't big on paved roads, so I need dirt roads, I made them out of felt, acrylic caulking, and dry brushing.

All I need now is a bridge that is suitable for the eastern front.
Do Russian bridges look markedly different that their western counter parts?
