The club meetings always have a broad mix of periods and scales, but also a huge variation in styles. The design approaches are indeed eclectic.
It got me thinking. Many people have a design style that they use for all their wargaming projects.
Yet, I tend to decide on a 'look', a presentation style, that's particular to each specific project.
No more is this evident than in the look of the terrain, and in particular the colour of rivers. By way of example, here are a few of my projects to illustrate what I mean.
Now, don't let's get too bogged down in the true 'realistic' colour of water, or how rivers 'should' be presented... (I suppose being 'bogged down' should in fact be reserved for marshes anyway).
When starting a new project, do you decide on a deliberate 'design style'?
Or do you just do it in your 'usual way.'?
Food for thought...
