Goodluck ;)

But this weekend we picked up some Woodland Scenics - make your trees kit.

https://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics ... 953/page/1

There are different sizes/scales for both deciduous and pine trees

We think they could be fairly easily tailored to have play/fight/die platforms in them.

We are positive Oldent will have done similar in his Tree Lab of many things......

I have already got a wide mix of trees, including Schliech plastic (which I just found a glue for - the darn leaf groups fall off if not glued). I think I"m good on trees....

Wabbit - I have a pile of 4Ground buildings and really like them. Cheap, easy to assemble, and very effective in adding to my 15mm building set!

I have to go look at the trees but they seem impressive. NO assembly required??

...went to the website. Wow, their prices have gone up...and the trees are expensive!

As for expensive ... probably, the thing to remember here is that they are of a good size, most of our other trees are smaller.

There probably are cheaper options out there but until you see them its hard to know what your getting. With these 4Ground trees we saw a number of you tube videos showing these off and they looked amazing so we went for a few - hoping to pick some more up at Salute next month :)

Have a look at 3rd party sellers - sometimes they offer discounts
We got ours from a UK firm Wayland Games:
https://www.waylandgames.co.uk/3881-tre ... -materials

They do 25% off GW and in this case 10% of 4Ground - sometimes you have to wait a little while if they don't have the stock, but always had good comms and a good experience with them.
Though probably not a realistic option for you guys stateside :(

For 10 mm they stock Battlefield in a Box Pre-Painted Small Pine Wood at 20% off ;)
