Pretty slick. Are the trees glued down as well?

The trees are mounted on 25mm and 40mm bases, this helps them stand up.

I share the trees with my regular battlefield forest bases.

Awesome job! Would be great for a story of an invading Xenos or chaos force reaching deep into previously safe(r) Imperial worlds!

Always need more wood harvesters..oh wait this isnt warcraft..

Looks really good, though I'm not a fan of those kind of trees in 40k. It just doesn't feel right.

Thrice Nicecess!

Good to see a bit of landscape design.
Aslo possible to have the gardens war wrecked if the buildings are bashed up.

well done!

I think this looks great, especially as a "playing" terrain. Yeah you maybe could have added a bit more grass variety, but this isn't a diorama, it needs to be functional to play on. I'd like to build a similar garden, just maybe not quite as big for my table.

This is a really nice piece. By the book.

Give us some more!
