Instead of just focussing on finishing my current paint project first, my mind is already inexorably drawn towards the thing I’ll be doing after I’ve finished the current thing and the thing I’ll do in-between. Anyone familiar with that problem? Anyway.
I’m in this hobby now for 27ish years, but there’s a thing I never had: forest scenery. I know, right? I think that was always like build-your-terrain-1-0-1, and I’m sure there’s tutorials in a bunch of old White Dwarfs sitting in my parents’ basement (they are huge fans) and even the older rulebooks I still have. But nevertheless I wanted to pick your brains first.
So, I want to make a few forests for WHFB. I have some modular stuff in mind and that’s all good and well, but I could use some gentle nudging into the right direction concerning some minor details about the forests: the actual trees. I’m not looking for something fancy. The whole thing should neither be more work nor more expensive than the actual models. All I want is trees which have the right size and have good texture/colour. They should look fine when put on the table, nobody needs to be like “hoooold on, these are AWESOME, these are the best trees I’ve ever seen” and so on, but they also shouldn’t look like toys and distract from the immersion.
Long story short, what’s a size/scale people are happy with? Maybe someone even has a company/model in mind? I have a feeling I’d prefer broad-leafed trees over conifers, but maybe there’s room for variety. I guess the model-train-community is our friend here? @MichaelX, those trees you brought to CDOffline were totally fine, which ones were those? (come to think of it, maybe I should have just asked you this one-line question in the discord, but now that I’ve already written this novel…)
