Okay, so I no longer use hex grid boards to play on with Battletech. I collected lots of heroscape plastic stackable hexes over the years, with the idea of covering a table with a 3d hex grid terrain board. Now that I'm not using a grid when playing games, I thought I'd try to make some scenery out of the hexes, so this is my experiment:
I took some plastic hexes, and glued them together, to form a small hill.
I flocked it with grit.
I washed it with devlan mud.
I heavily brushed it with a drybrush brush, in codex grey.
I glued grass onto it.
