more 'jungle' scenics ...

I'd accumulated various jungle bits plastic trees and the like. Needed some medium height jungle bases so onto the gaming table for a sort through, plus available bases
 having found some more bases after a rummage, went to work fixing the foliage/trees onto the bases. For the foliage items, I drill a hole in the bases and push the stem part through and fix with superglue.
 bases painted and scatter applied ....

just right for the edge of a jungle area or for use near buildings etc....

having a faff about ...

I am currently in the process of re-organising the troops etc for the caribbean; the aim is to have for each of Spain, France and Britain approximately 90+ figures each.

My 1/1200 ships will be organised into a British squadron, with others having to double as Spanish or French (unless  I buy some more..)
