Aah, but that is a tactical mistake, Grasshopper.

On a solo scrounging trip, oneself cannot be vetoed. ;)

Good point, but trying to sneak a 2 foot T-rex skull into our gaming room would have required coordinated distraction protocol 3 or 4 and the kids have not drilled either of those enough yet.

Also what the hell were we going to do with it!
Often we let cool rule, but sometime you need a reality check and there is no room between to two foot Dalek and the 1:16 scale Tiger I.
Hmmm, I have never, ever run into that here... yeaaaaahhh, that's the ticket.

Oldent has a lot of trees, no really a lot of trees.
Those in the plastic containers we half expect to see a spider start moving around.

Nice use of fish terrain pacarat :)
We picked up the below last week in a Garden Centre.

Some WIP tropical flora. Still need basework, vines and such, and some smaller bits at ground level.

That is LOT of trees!!! For me, tree storage is the biggest issue. Unlike DF tiles, you have to pack them carefully and give them space or they end up grabbing each other and becoming hard to separate. One thing i did find was some craft store greens for fish tanks.

Cut them along a row and you have a decent and very sturdy hedgerow. There are some other versions that can make decent sized bushes for cheap.

I keep a couple of hundred brush wire trees at the game store.

I currently have 8 trees. 4 DF mountain trees and 4 Dungeon Crawler trees. I also have 12 stumps I got from tiny furniture on ebay. I have no bonsai trees, dwarvenite or wood. I am hoping to expand my tree capability. .
