Its a Jungle out there

It is an old concept, but damn if plastic plants don’t make for super easy terrain.   Take a trip out to Michael’s or Hobby Lobby stock up on:

  • a few types of plastic plants
  • a bag of 40mm round wooden disks
  • hot glue gun

After a few nights work, you’ll have a jungle worth of terrain to cover the gaming table.  I’ve never been a fan of hot glue, but the product does a fine job of holding everything in place.  25 stands/150 glue points and I’ve had to re-glue one plant frond.

Look for this jungle to be part of the ruined pirate castle playing at Adepticon 09.

    I like those, think I’m going to have to give these ago myself. Thanks for the inspiration mate.

    Clearly, next time I move, I have to take into consideration the proximity of a Michael’s or Hobby Land. The plants at the pet store are prohibitively priced!

    I love them though! The modular ease makes them perfect for me!

    This is what my FLGS uses almost exclusively. And they work just fine.

    Remember to also check floral stores — they frequently have long strings of fake plants (for wrapping around arches and things). Many of these can be disassembled into individual plants that look just like the ones pictured here.
