I decided to make a forest.
First I went to the dollar store and bought some fake plant stuff , different kinds , bigger and smaller all cheap , even used some Christmas stuff .
Then cut out a larger random oval shaped blob in 5mm foam core , feathered the edges and
coated the top with pva glue , then flocking , poked holes and glued in trees and shrubs .
I wanted to be able to have troops inside the woods , so I set the woods on a sheet of 5mm foam core and made a bigger oval around it , same procedure as before , but this time only around the outside leaving the inside with just flocking , so that I could drop the first piece inside it.
now when troops move into the woods , you just take out the center piece and place the minis inside .
