Woods, gotta love 'em. A great way of covering your advance, somewhere to spring an ambush from and even something to keep you safer from flying tank killers. I'm looking at you Typhoons and Hs129B3s.
Pain in the arse to make though, and can turn out costly, but in my constant efforts to build tables on the cheap I've come up with this.
I'm not ashamed to admit that I buy my trees, I found an eBay supplier Everest Model that I get them from.
These are 65mm tall and work out at a little over 20pence each, bargain. He also sells trees in all types of sizes and other small bits and pieces that are on a 'future project' list I carry in my head. They come un-based though so after a bit of head scratching I went and bought a pack of these.
I then glue them onto a 25mm disc, in this case I use washers with as small a hole in as possible, I found them in my local B&Q. Plastic bases can also do the job but I plan to add some magnetic goodness to my woods so have gone for washers.
So there you have it, 24 trees based, waiting to be painted and awaiting the wood bases that will turn them into area terrain. That'll be covered in part two.
A place to hide. Part Two.
