Not wanting to wait, I rushed into building two trees. One with the bush foliage and a second with the hair infused material. Both by Woodland Scenic's but whilst the bush one looked more realistic it held just small clumps of leaves so would not look right. On the other hand both really look tall against 6mm figures compared with the usual tree's. These could easily be 15mm small trees. But what do you guys think, please be fully honest as it's not too late to get more of the usual size.
Also what do you think, is it worth continuing and doing another 20 plus? I think I won't need all 57 for this game, so maybe make up so many and then if we need more make even more. I have also seen another way of making them but not sure they will either suit 6mm or take the strain of regular use though would be fine for a one off display game.
I do plan to dry brush the trunks to get a better tree like colour and finish as at the moment it screams out plastic a little too much. I am leaning towards hidden in a forest of trees they will be OK but if not then I still have time to sort things out.
I have the Guard Artillery and Limbers on the painting table at the moment and these should be finished before the week is out. This will have all my figures painted with four weeks to go, though I still have to label and store them ready for the game but I hope to get that done next week. Last up will be boxing up the trees and buildings for the game. Can't believe it's less than five weeks to the game. Lee has done 17 battalions of British (34 flags!!!) but still has a and flagging to go. I can see an afternoon/evening spent chatting and flagging on the cards, not a bad way to pass the time as I don't mind that job and can take pleasure from watching Lee who hates it LOL.
