Hey everybody! I'm in the process of working up some scatter terrain for woods / trees, using CDs as bases.

coming along alright I think:

Have a look at the post why not? Comments appreciated!

Look good. I have a few laying around too, mostly "spooky fall" themed.

I use cd bases to mount buildings and trees since the 1980s. They worked perfect for the objective sector rules. Glad to see them still in use.

Thanks for comments! The real test will be when they hit the game table…

I "liberated" a whole stack of DVDs/CDs from the marketing group several years back that I've been using for scatter paint palettes and scatter terrain.

Good work! I agree regarding trees and fences- you can't have too many.

@JD: that's a great way to get gaming materials.

@Cod: Yeah, I just completed all the fences that I had available to make and ended up with 27 feet of snake rail fence. Seemed like a lot to me but likely not enough to do any battlefield I can imagine.
