I’m trying to recreate a Kiwi bush effect for my 28mm Empress Miniatures New Zealand Wars figures. I found some old Warhammer trees recently, and wondered if they could possibly stand in as New Zealand tree-ferns (or maybe more like cabbage trees, with those branching trunks).
Today I tried painting them up, and placed them amongst my Maori figures. Much to my surpise, I found they actually do the job very well! Not that a botanist would ever be fooled, mind you, but enough to give the general impression of New Zealand bush. What do you think?
Anyway, I’m now on the quest to see if anyone has spares of these old Warhammer trees lying around that they don’t want? Just contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any, and we can talk turkey. I’m going to need a lot of them, as you can see from this real New Zealand bush scene!
