How do you simulate surprise?  Surprise and swift decisive action seem
to be
the traits of CT Ops.  FMA definitely suits but I wonder how you keep
Ts in check.

It sounds like your on track with the foam insulation and the foamcore
Both are common terrain making materials. Another material is standard
cardboard, but that's used primarily for bases.  You can also use thin
plywood as a base material.

I've seen a number of "geomorphic" sections of urban terrain mounted on
2' x 2' thin plywood which allows for configurable terrain pieces.

I'm currently interested in making terrain for FMA scenarios in order
to simulate counter terrorists operations.  Foamcore is my preferred
choice for the base and walls for a three story embassy building.  I'm
also envisioning a large one story villa for a drug lord assassination

Unfortunately, I'm still busy getting prepared for the ECC convention
next month, so I'll have to wait until March.
