Palm Tree Terrain Plans

 

I have organised all the bits for a palm tree blitz this weekend including a couple of oasis templates from Charlie Foxtrot, some additional 50mm diameter round mdf bases and some cheapo plastic palm trees that I bought ages ago for AK47. The plan is to re-paint the palm trees so that they can be attached in clusters of two or three to the bases, with a second smaller base glued onto the 50mm one so that the palm tree basing wires have something to stick in to, then texture the whole lot with a combination of PVA and filler or acrylic paste. 

I have fifteen bases to complete so that I can use them as scatter terrain and also plug them into the oasis features. I might make a couple of drop in tent and stores bases so that I can make a camp around one of the oases for the rebels. I also have some Woodlands Scenics tree armatures that I can make some more 50mm 'drop in' bases with, so that I can use the oasis features as arid desert watering holes, way up in the mountainous badlands of the back of beyond or in the Sahel for the French post-colonial project. I'll do those another time.
