Afrika: Palms and Portuguese

 Today I worked on the Portuguese and finished some. I also got the samples of Mdf  palm trees ( a pound each) to be used as scenery in the Afrika game. They are 3mm thick and look the part. I painted them, stuck them onto Mdf bases and added a stone from the garden. Instant semi flat scenery and very simple to make. I ordered more today which should come by the end of the week.

  1. Alan, I think this is just a brilliant little project. But then again, you've already heard me say that! Love it, keep posting.

    Cheers;

  2. Excellent palm trees, as full of character as the old lead ones. Good to see these semi flats painted up.

    2. I feel the palm trees do stand up very well in comparison to old metal ones. They have a certain charm.
