My belt sander is down for the count and I like using my dremel.  You are right on the hazards of the sawdust so both good dust collection and wearing a mask are a must!  Shop-Vac's  and dust mask are really cheap and new lungs are not, so we should all "do the math".

I'd like to say the deciduous trees was a conscious decision based on extensive botanical and geographical research.  Nope, I just didn't have enough tall items and tossed the cheap Noch trees in.  I do think it came out well

Thanks for all the kind comments

I spent a week in the Yucatan and I can tell you that most of the trees you will see are deciduous trees, so your jungle bases are very accurate.

I really like your terrain board and all the jungle terrain, I have been wanting to build something similar and this has inspired me to do so thank for the motivation  :)

For more detailed instructions look up Big Burma Build by Terrain Tutor on you tube.

They look great but I hesitate to start making jungle stuff as you need so much to fill a table and then have no place to store it!

Here are a few pictures of the jungle terrain on the tabletop.  These from the DAK & Dragons games I ran last week at Hisoricon.  As you can surmise from the title, these games were very serious historical simulations....







You can see a lot more pictures of the games on my blog:
