Very Old Terrain Pieces.

I have had these trees from just about the start of my wargaming, that is I suspect thirty years give or take a year. However very few had been even given a basic base job but finally pushed by The Joy of Six I have finally got round to it.

The assorted bases are what I have stuck them to over the years. Just card with a whole bored into it, miliput for the odd shaped ones from the days you could only get the grey stuff. A few are held in place buy glue from my gluegun and this gives a satisfying trunk.

Here we have my recent addition included to give an idea on how I would use some of these if we do indeed use them in the display game. I will make up more of these and see how they look against the mass of smaller trees. If they don't look right at least I have some trees for my 15mm Ancients and ECW.

Lastly with some of the new troops to give them scale. I am really pleased to finally get these fully finished and able to get used. This bunch and the ones Lee owns gives us a reasonable amount of trees but I can see us getting a few more just to be sure. Anyway other battles will need more I am sure.

    1. To be fair they have not had the hardest service they could have had

  3. Is it wrong that I want to put little teeny Christmas lights on all those trees?
