A little foliage
I'm sort of between 6mm projects at the moment as I wait for my latest Heroic and Ros order to put in an appearance. I did however have a lot of scatter material so thought I would have a crack at making some 6mm terrain, namely trees.
I made these using just scatter material and cocktail sticks cut down a bit. Honestly I'm rather pleased with the result, this was the first time doing this so I just based them on a big round base I had lying around. In future I'll cut some 3mm mdf or similar into a nice random shape and make some bigger groups of trees.
Above is my first attempt next to the finished article. I initially made the trees way way to small and based them on a 2p piece. It was immediately obvious that the trees were barely bigger than the figures so I restarted and the right hand base is the finished article.
Some shots below of the trees with my 6mm Bacus Naps, strictly speaking the trees are still a bit under size to be truly in scale. But to my eye they look right, and that's good enough for me!
