This afternoon I based up half of the palm trees I've recently purchased. I made 12 stands- half of which are destined for the club. I made the bases out of MDF with some plaster added for texture then painted. Once the paint was dry the bases were covered in PVA and dunked in sand. Some clump foliage was finally added.
They'll be great for our Middle East games but would also work well for Poochie's 28mm Force on Force games- especially for the Pacific. 12 bases worth for less than $20-can't complain about that!
