Well I decided I didn't like the terrain boards as bare as they were. They definitely looked like a battle had occurred, but just looked too empty. I needed something to break up the monotony of the desert. So, I added some patches of grass and trees, and I really like the way they look now. The trees will make them harder to store and transport, but I'll work that out.
A shot of the first few trees being installed.
I got these trees on eBay, very cheap, about $20 for 400 of them. China of course! (Free shipping)
Hmm, looks like a golf course...
Well, a golf course with radioactive sand traps, anyway.
Fully populated with trees!
And a shot from the other end.
OK, these trees are a little too alike in color, guess I'll order some more in a lighter shade...
I do think it looks pretty good though, poke a hole in the foam, dip the tree trunk in white glue, insert!
Close-up, I think these trees look very realistic, twisted wire, flock, and brown paint on the trunks.
A shot from a lower elevation. The glue dries clear and you cannot tell it is there.
I'll take some more pictures during our next Ogre Miniatures battle!!
