Check out what this guy has done here:

Is that awesome or what?

Could be useful for making a terrain piece for elves, ewoks, savages, gorilla-men, Swiss Family Robinson or who-knows-what, don't you think?

PS. The moment I saw it I realized that the tree portion could be simplified further, by simply buying and starting off with an aquarium ornamental resin tree, and then just concentrate on the platforms:

Great model but would be better plastered with dead Ewoks.

That is impressive work!

That is very cool, thanks for sharing the link.

Ok that's pretty cool! Could make for a good Tarzan game. Or added to a "Lost Island" game too!

War Monkey09 Apr 2010 6:25 p.m. PST

I meant "Lost World" had island on the brain for some reason all day today. LOL

I was thinking about doing the same sort of thing using the new G/W Citadel Woods Set … link For my 6mm Terrain. The huge trees in 6mm would kind of remind me of what I saw in AVATAR … And add some feral structures of some sorts … it could work …

Neat post, thanks.

I really like his trick of gluing toothpicks onto a foam rubber strip to make flexible walls and railings.

Someone commented on that site about the need for foliage for proper looks and the trouble that imposes for playability … I haven't done this myself but I think I've figured out the problem … basically make removable upward tree extensions with foliage that would look like short-trunked trees themselves. Stick on, it looks great. Need to place figures, remove the folliage. Voila!

That is a very nice piece of work! Thanks for posting it.

Cool.
Quite hot soon after the discovery of fire though.

Here's another one by Dalanshin. I believe he used an actual tree or bush for the framework.
