Tips for some good trees? 4 Years, 12 Months ago  
Does somebody has some good tips on where to buy some trees and a grass "carpet"? I would like to put my pieces of DF on a large table and create a forest and town area like some of the people in the foto section did. I saw that gamesworkshop has some in there citadel line, anybody has seen these? I was wondering what you use and what u suggest.

Try a gaming store, especially one with lots of minis and wargamer stuff.

Try a craft store, in the section where they've got little plaster/plastic buildings to create little holiday villages. They might have grass mats, and some great trees that might be too big for your display.

Try a hobby shop that carries model railroad supplies; they'll probably carry the brand Harneloot linked to.

Crimlock,

All of the above are good suggestions.

Might I also suggest that you first search any of the larger dollar store chains in your area for items that might be useful (if modified) for gaming terrain before deciding your purchase options. This may provide some additional options regarding trees, although I doubt that you will find the grass mat that you were referring to there. You may also find other items that you were not expecting to as well, (please see below).

Even yesterday, I "found" three very thin, ridged door mats (in green) that were perfect for early crop fields. I intend to cut them up into various-sized patches, add a bit of paint/colour to some of them and use them throughout village and countryside setups. The cost for all of these was $3 Canadian.

My point is, search out the possibility of more cost-effective options first. You can always follow-up and acquire other the other items if you wish.

Personally, I'm just as pleased with my (modified) dollar-or-less terrain acquisitions as I am with my (many) more expensive pieces.

I hope this helps.

I know it isn't exactly what you were asking about although I hope that it may prove helpful; If not to you, then perhaps for someone else.

Regards

I have a grass mat from Monday Knight Productions that is 3'x3' and has a 1" grid on it. I have just run my first outdoor session with it and it works great. They have several sizes with or without grids of both square and hex. Incidently, I also use the Woodland Scenics trees with an added 2' balsa wood base for support.

I once had a very large (about 6 feet x 12 feet) "grass mat" that I would use for Battletech. I've seen similar things to it at Home Depot where one can simply choose the size of the mat desired, and they cut it off a big roll.

I can't remember what they are called, but will keep an eye out for it in the future.

I would suggest terranscapes.com/

Check under the "Trees and Vegetation" section and the "Playing Surfaces" section. He does most of his stuff for Warhammer, but there's no reason they can't be used for other things too. I like his stuff, and it takes a lot of the work out of my hands.

I have bought myself a whole forest (around 40 trees) for christmas from www.themodeltreeshop.co.uk/ for around 100$ US.
They come already assembled/glued and are as realistic (very realistic) as I needed them to be.
I simply glued them upon brown-painted metal washers so that they would not fall.
To store them, I keep them in a plastic case with a thin sheet of magnetic roll at the bottom.

I really believe you should take a look at what their products look like! www.themodeltreeshop.co.uk/acatalog/Large_Single_Pack_Trees.html

...hope that helps!
