Thats quite a forset you have there.

Pretty nice. For my liking the contrast between the earthtones and grass is a bit too steep. Maybe a few highlights to the brown to smoothen it ? Also when using static grass or green flock it might be a good idea to use a few shades of different shades. Lovely work anyway and that has been a pretty huge task so I understand the straightforwardness :)

 :o

That sure is a lot of trees!

I appreciate how long that must take, but the work is worth it when you can plonk a whole forest down on the table at the end of it.

Great!

FANTASTIC !

Where are the trees from ? i have never found quality looking trees at reasonable prices here in the states. The woodland scenic stuff NEVER holds up to the rigors of gaming that i put it through.

I picked up most of my trees from Modelzone a UK hobby shop but the brand they sell is this company

Wow, you've even got more trees than me :o

I'm amazed how well the "brush" rees look, when combined to fill a whole table.

Ugh, this just reminds me that I still need to base mine. They're glued to their washers, but there's a ton of flocking and base-painting that needs to be done.

Maybe this winter...

Hi Flags

To be honest I dont know - the conifers range in height from 2" to about 5". The 'brush trees are old GW trees.
