Old school moss bush scatter terrain

I continue my slow work to develop for myself a good selection of terrain. This time I have gone old school. I remember when I started gaming <cough> 30+ years ago sponge/mosses were used quite a bit on the table top. I don’t see it much any more though. So when I wanted to created some bush scatter terrain I thought about this and it still does work. I had a pack of moss/sponge in the deep recesses of my to do collection, so decided I would use them. After some glue etc that means you can see the results below. I now have 16 scatter terrain bushes – oh and a 40mm base for scale.

I have not painted them – they are green and will work for what I need. Yes I am sure I could paint them but that’s more work than I wan to put into something I will not use that often. They are a size which means I can use them for 28 or 15mm gaming. Although in theory ok for 10 or 6mm gaming they are starting to get a little big for those smaller scales. Still this is a cheap way to get some scatter terrain.

You can also see that I have based and glued these to simple wooden tabs for stability. Those actually came from a craft pack and most are tear drop shaped – which are perfect for this use. I can use these for everything from lush Northern climbs to deep Mediterranean or Middle Eastern/African battles.

So there we are. Nothing clever really and definitely old school terrain. However, these are still useful for table top games.
