Once again pretty straight forward method for just adding an extra touch to those trees you want a Jap or an NVA to stand under,any questions just ask.

Hello Alcal,

Great looking tree. What type of twigs do you use? I usually scratchbuild mine with wire and putty because most natural materials are too brittle for wargames use. Thin electrical wire is also a good material for vines.

Cheers

hm... now I need to find out what "heather" is. If I translate it and try Google Image search I get this result:

Does it look like that?

Thanks,
Chris

Oh! You use the thiker branches close to the ground. Have you tried using roots for trees?

Look under leaf foliage in the resource centre

If you meant the ground cover then its wood chippings
