    Hi. I want to build some dense forest areas for my 6mm WWII western Europe theater and I saw these photos. That’s exactly what I want to do. Can you explain to me what you think would be the best ways to achieve this look? I mean some forest areas where some vehicules could hide under but I need those areas to looks good visually and to be fairly easy and fast to build.

    If you have some photos, it would help me to visualize.

    Thanks for your help!

    Get a block of foam and cut it roughly to shape.
    Paint it brown.
    Apply PVA and stick on lots of clump foliage.
    Spray clump foliage with PVA/water/dishwash soap.
    Push brown cocktail sticks into underneath of foam for trunks.
    Job done.

    What Mike said. In fact he made some for me for 3mm scale games and I’ve used the heck out of them. He even left little hollow spaces under them so that my troops could go through the forest – a line of “tree trunks” along the edge leaves the underside hollow.

    Of course I do! I have a special drawer for them in my game table.

    Can I see some pictures of your drawer? I would like to know how to store tiles safely.

    It’s just a big, flat IKEA drawer system. I think it’s called “Alex.” Nothing special to it.

    Rubberised horsehair gives less density, use scatter material on top to vary shades and …

    Personally declaring “troops in the woods” avoids the need for special effects, but thats just me.

    This is true and the underneath that shows through will most likely look like branches.
