Who makes the best 15mm Peninsular War Terrain

I have a village but I need more.

A mat, vineyard, olive trees? What more?

Most trees I find for 15mm look more for northern europe than spain.

I am thinking of trying Sharpe Practice in 15mm

Ideally from a european shop.

Thanks!

As far as trees are concerned,try the smaller versions of trees sold by railway model suppliers like Noch through people like Guagemaster.

Typical 'Spanish' trees would be (dependant on area) Pine,
Beech,Oak, Sycamore, Ash, Chestnut, Lime, Elm and Cypress. I have listed these with the most common first. Hope that helps.

For my money, I think Loic Neveu makes the best peninsular war buildings in 15mm, even if the range is a little small:

And for Spain I think you need wheat fields, vineyards, and olive orchards

Former drum buildings, can be had from SHQ
Sort of wineyard, could pass, from this Oz company, best bought from EU( and uk;) at Magister Militum.

If not in mountains, probably best low trees as in most Mediterranean types. This and decent fruit trees as in the south can be had in tons for cheap from ebay Chinese dealers. i did several times.

You can even cut them up to make wines maybe.

For model railroad offerings, TT Scale is 1:120 while HO is 1:87. 15mm figures are around 1:100-1:108 for scale. I would probably go with TT Scale myself for trees and buildings.
