Cabbages

Inspired by something posted by Too Fat Lardies on TMP I thought I'd have a go at some cabbages. Not bad!

These are made from the small roses sold in craft shops for making cards and decorations for weddings.

The other crops are made from clump foliage and rough turf texture (Woodland Scenics)

Very nicely done! Are the roses expensive? They certainly look the part on the terrain...

These look great! Very well done. Don't the 'cabbages' go funny when you paint them?

See you at Partizan, I'll also be exhibiting. You'll be able to take a photo of me with the game for the blog!

Take care,
Eddie.

Hi Paul

The roses were quite cheap, a few pounds for a bag of about 30. Should get a few gardens out of that lot!

Hi
Surely your French looters will take these cabbages to eat!

Nice change for "gardens", certainly adds character. As others have posted I'll be adding some lines to my garden plots.

I have also copied the paper roses/cabbages idea.

Thanks for the hint.
