    So I'm just finished with my hills and cliffs and rocky ground. All my alien world battlefield needs now is some exotic alien vegetation. I don't want romantic earth trees.

    My idea is to cut plastic flowers apart and paint them in different colours(so that they don't look like flowers) and maybe some pink colored lichen..

    What do you think?
    How do you/would you make alien plants and trees?

    Get some dried or plastic plants from a craft store. Just look for things that aren't traditional leafy bushes. Thistles make really cool spiked trees. Some miniature plastic cactus would make for some interesting plants. If you live in the Southwest or desert area, many of the thorned plants dry well and look very alien when used in the Warhammer scale.

    Why not make a completely dead forest?
    As in only twigs and dried up dead trees?

    As a nother tip if you want a really possessed forest I advice you to take a look in WD at the beastman tree they built there...


    Other tip:

    Use stuff you find at the beach... seaweed and such...

    Dried twigs and stuff.. hmm.. My static grass looks rather dry, so why not?

    I don't live at the beach though..

    I do live by the forest, maybe I should take a nerdy harvest there

    Ummm yeah well the forest could easily be a good bet...

    Not to be intruding or anything but in what country do you live?
    Knowing that could bring us others some idea on what you could find around that could be usable.

    Another idea would be to make a forest made of the decorative flowers you can buy at "hobby" stores (I can't see how they can call that kind of store a hobby store&#33. The best idea would be the dried up stuff... there should be some pretty alien looking stuff there...

    Try aquarium plants, they come in some funky colors too. Great for alien scenery.
    I did some jungle scenery that came out pretty good using a combination of aquarium plants and craft store floral stuff.
    ...(LINK REMOVED... DRAGONSLAYERO)...
    Check out the above link to some of my jungle scenery and my truk boyz running through it.

    I live in Norway Dragonslayero.(spiller førti tusen )

    Great scenery hakbash! Seems to be almost just like what I had in mind. Those colorful wierd plants look mysterious and other worldly. Aquarim plants are not so expensive either, I have heard. Did you paint them or where they looking that good when you bought them? If you only need to base them, I think I could make a jungle fighting board in a day!

    Hakbash I have sent you a message on the matter or your added links.
    Refrain from doing so in the future and no other further action will be taken.
    The link will be removed...

    Just add the pics and that will be satisfying enough.

    Absoluthor: so you live in Norway?
    Can't be hard to get hands on stuff there...
    Kommer derfra selv, bor og spiller aktivt i Stavanger.
    Hvis du tilfeldigvis spilte på turneringene Leidang i Oslo i november i fjor, eller på første vinterkrigen som ble arrangert i Bergen i januar så er det mulig jeg har truffet deg...

    Men over til engelsk igjen sånn at folk forstår...
    Ok then...
    Just take a walk in the "wilderness" and your bound to find something useful.
