Good enough for government work. I'll post another picture when it's all done.
Onto forests. I made my next big forest using the same technique but this time with 1" roofing nails for trunks. Its the bigger of the two in the box:
|Box O Trees|
I slathered the nails with caulk and the points stick into the ground to try to make them less obvious. To me, they turned out ok, but a little thicker than I wanted. I suppose I could try thinner nails, but I might as well use the dowels.
Something that I noticed that bothers me is that the flocking of some of my trees have turned a sickly pale much like what happens to broccoli when you leave it in the refrigerator too long. My models and terrain stuff are stored by a window, but these trees are in boxes and I have a bunch of trees for my 15mm games that are totally exposed to the light and show no discoloration, so it can't be due to UV light. I am not sure why this happened. Any thoughts?
