I love collecting, painting, converting and scratch building terrain. I even get to play a game once in a while. I'm a big fan of gamification as part of teaching - I'm an elementary school teacher.
This blog covers my hobby work and 'teaching through gaming'.

Tutorial: Jersey Barriers
Been wanting some jersey barriers for a good while, thinking they'll add a lot to many different games.
Cut out some strips of foam. I've gone for 1" high barriers. The foam is 2 cm thick.
Cut them into short pieces.
Get a new and an sharp hobby knife. Cutting from the top and down, cut an angle on each side of the foam. I found up - down was better than side - side. The side - side result got jacked.
Cut and angle at the end of the barriers as well.
I decided to make some battle damage in half my jersey barriers. Using a plier you can rip out small chunks of the foam.
A small amount of time later and you'll have a good amount of barriers.
I spray painted the barriers with a cheap dark grey and drybrushed with a lighter grey. Added small yellow stripes for some extra detail. Printed some small posters and stuck on a few barriers and added a bit of blood spatter.
