These simple tree silhouettes are instantly recognizable as trees yet allow more room for your characters and creatures to maneuver around the battlefield than the typical flocked trees wargamers use. If the clear acrylic option is chosen they clearly mark their locations and character line of sight, but still allow the player a clear view of the action.
Each 4 Pack of trees comes with 4 different but similar trees.
DS Elevated: We use the 1” square base with a magnet at ¼” thick. The small base allows us to use the tree anywhere on the battlefield that we want. The magnet ensures that it doesn’t fall over when the table is bumped. All of our personal terrain is built on a 1/4” MDF base for uniformity with our Hirst Arts TM terrain pieces. We like to base our trees much like a miniature.
Physical Properties: The trees are roughly 6” (150mm) tall. They are of slightly different heights. They are 1/8” (3mm) thick. The 4 “blades” symbolize the tree branches and foliage. The base is cut so the trunk fits into it for a much stronger glue joint.
Decoration: If you want to decorate your trees, we recommend spray painting a base layer and then two or three layers of dabbed paint in lighter colors with a stiff brush or sponge.
Gameplay: In Pathfinder TM and other D20 TM based games, these models symbolize massive trees. The rules indicate that the square is completely full and nothing else can enter it. The trees can be centered in a square or aligned with a grid.
- Deciduous Trees
- Evergreen Trees
- Winter or Dead Trees
- 1” Square Base (1/4” thick)
- 1” Square Magnet Base (1/4” thick)
Only use the 1" base if you are going to use a magnet or you are going to glue the base to something. The trees will not stand up very well otherwise. The 1" base with magnet works best with other terrain around it to lock it in place.
- 2” Square Base (1/4” thick)
- 2” Square Magnet Base (1/4” thick)
Use the 2" bases if you want the tree to be aligned with a 1" grid.
- 3” Square Base (1/4” thick)
- 3” Square Magnet Base (1/4” thick)
Use the 3" bases if you want the tree to be in the center of a square on a 1" grid or aligned with a 1.5" grid.
They are easily assembled with PVA (white glue like Elmer's) or wood glue. We recommend Tightbond II Wood Glue as it will not weaken should you decide to paint your trees. Wrap the trunks with a rubber band while the glue dries or for instant use on your table.
