28mm Desert Wadi - Two Sheds Fred

I have been on the lookout for a Wadi for a number of years which increases the scope of games in various theatres ranging from Africa to the Middle East, the recent Kings of Bronze Project for Infamy Infamy drove me to make a concerted effort to find a suitable piece of terrain.

There are several posts across the web from talented gamers who made some bespoke pieces, but this is not in my skill set and franking with an ever increasing lead pile really could not afford the time to make my own....

Step forward... Two Shed Fred.... found on Facebook.



A quick exchange with Fred and Emily around what I was looking for. Within a couple of weeks a well packed box arrived from the guys with a number of pieces to create a bespoke modular Wadi and rough ground. Enough for around 6ft of hidden terrain.

You can see the individual pieces below.
Loads of scope and varied angles to provide multiple choices on the table top.

I can't speak highly enough for Fred and Emily great quality terrain at a reasonable price, the individual elements fit together really well and the guys have kept hold of the colouring should I wish to expand the Wadi or other pieces later.  





I opted for a number a number of open ended elements to give me plenty of scope for games and exiting the Wadi.
As you can see below the depth is around 2cm which sufficient cover for units of troops without being to imposing on the table in terms of height.




I love the Wadi crossing perfect for the goat herd to be foraging for greenery...


I added in a couple of 'extra's' to the order adding in a lovely oasis which has a little greenery to break up the table top and the scrub land make for a perfect ambush point.




Check out the Two Sheds Fred Face book page for other terrain items available but I shall definitely be calling on them for future terrain items.

Itching to get back to a club night to get the full piece on the table and the first outing... The only choice is French vs Ottoman, Ancients or Zulu War?

    1. I simply would have not go round to doing my own Steve and had struggled to find a commercial set that fitted the bill.

  2. These are very nice terrain pieces - so, Facebook is useful for something after all, who would have thought!?

    1. It's a new one on me, don't have an account it just seems to be a waste of valuable painting time.
      However a great way to showcase your business outside of running your own web page.
