Default Hills-Styrafoam?

Does anyone know how to make(or where to get) good styrafoam hills. I have plenty of styrafoam.

The Warhammer 40k site has how to make some craters with "insulation foam" (looks like styrafoam to me...) http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...rs/default.htm. Just don't make a hole in the middle, and make it larger and slightly more irregular than their piece in the link shows and you have a hill.

The Fantasy site has some hills as well, fairly detailed... Again they use "insulation foam" but it seems like "good quality" styrafoam to me (ie. not the stuff that is made of the little balls stuck together), though it seems like it'd work with any quality of materials...

Hope that's something near what you're looking for...

Dont use styrofome for hill. Take wire mesh nail it to your board. Shape the mesh so you get the hill you want. Then put a paper pulp over it, let it dry then paint over it with any colors. I did this once for a school project. ^-^

I make great hills based on 1/4 inch hardboard and don't charge anywhere near what GW does.
