Default Best way to make hills

1st: Take some wire mesh get it in the way you want your hill to look nail it to the board (assuming the battle field's base is a board)
2nd: Take paper pulp and put it over the mesh (let the pulp sock for 5 min)
3rd: Let the pulp dry, then paint over the pulp with any color you want

And PRESTO! you have a hill ;D

well from my point of view its really easy to make these hills it really doesnt matter how you do it just as long as you make a hill.
Styrofoam hills arent a good idea its a mess trying to make them. The easiest way to make them is buy styrofoam balls and cut them in half. Its much easier

Styrafoam all the way, but there kinda hard to make. I really don't even use hills.

personally i prefer cardbord step hills.

@ AmericanWarMonger: what type of polystyrene were you using? if you had the stuff made up of lots of little balls it's impossible to stop it making a mess. use high density stuff instead.
