Trees are one of those things, every wargamer has in their terrain-box. Sometimes trees (and woods) are even the only pieces of terrain for a gaming table available.
Trees for model-railways are the go-tos for easy forest-building. But trees made from wire and flock are also often used.
For the scale of 28 mm wargaming, those trees suffice. Yes, there’s always a better way, but using high-quality model-trees makes for excellent wargaming forests.
For my RPG battlemaps, I wanted something a bit different. Something invoking a certain mood – and so I printed some trees on my 3D printer.
Using files from printablescenery.com, I scaled the trunks to not only get different forms, but also different sized trees.
