More AWI terrain... (again)
It always seems one of those underlying debates on how trees should be based and represented on the gaming table, of course fielding a realistic forest would be impractical (spectacular, but impractical) and using small, shiny Christmas tree decorations just doesn't look the part. I like to have reasonable looking, large trees on the table but basing has been a question I've had for them.
Small individual bases can be made in the same way to allow for stand alone trees, the other advantage being is that the trees can be used for pretty much any theatre in which the fit, all I need to do is make some new bases for the terrain type.
The type of tree can also be altered to suit, I have plenty of pines for the northern campaign (or indeed anywhere in need of pines on the table).
I've also made a few cross rail fences (need a hell of a lot more though ). Quite happy with the way these turned out but they are a bit fragile (already broken two). I might make corner sections but that might be going a bit too far...
Beauty shots in the next post :-)
