Cool, but when would you need one? I don't remember a lot of battles involving Quonset huts.

That question doesn't seem to matter much any more. Just witness all those western desert tables with Arab villages (that were really only along the coast way form where the battles were fought) the palm tree forests (!?!?!?!) and the Hollywood style oasis where only wells really existed.

Silly, they're the secret weapons for when the wild Gazebo herd attacks the players!

Isn't all wargame going "representative" to a degree? Palm trees and adobe buildings help set the scene – saying "desert" very effectively.

I know my model buildings and trees are not tall enough, nor do I have enough, but in my mind's eye that convey the spirit of the period/battle.

Compare that to model railways where a table represents just a few hundred feet only, so can be more accurate and 1:1 scale.
