I asked my friend Dan, who lives in a larger city, and has time off at Christmas, to use his deal-hunting mojo for me in the post-Christmas sales. He found some of those 'Christmas Village' tree sets for me at a Micheal's (a big box chain craft and art supply store) near him. You can see Dan's winter terrain in this old game report on the Mad Padre's Wargame Blog.
I had seen a couple of these at my local Canadian Tire (a big hardware & housewares chain) before Christmas for around $15-16.
|Contents of one bag|
|Size comparisons with 15mm figures (L) and 28mm figure (R)|
Each bag has trees ranging from 2.5 inches (x10), 4 inches (x6), 6 inches (x3) and 9 inches (x2). The three smaller sizes will certainly be useful for 15mm battles.
Now I just need a white fleece for the ground and a few bare limbed deciduous trees and I can check off another item on my list.
