Jungle Terrain "On the Cheap" PALM TREES!

Continuing the tradition of getting the best, cheap wargaming terrain I can find, I am happy to deliver these little gems.  They are cake-topper palm trees (for birthday cakes):

Guarding the cookies
 They are palm trees (coconut but who cares?  Have you seen how much the HO scale ones cost at the hobby shop???) 

Here they are pictured next to one of my based Caesar 20mm 1:72 scale American troops.  He's probably not clothed correctly for the South Pacific but we'll remedy that once we paint up some of those IMEX Korean War troopers to look like US Marines in the South Pacific in WWII.  Just need to buy some Japanese now....

Here is the best part - they were .99 cents for 2 of them!  I bought 8 packs - enough to litter a jungle battlefield or make a nice, thick desert oasis.  If you couple them with some lichen or some nice, thick aquarium terrain from a Pet Supply Store (for about 5 bucks US) you will have a nice little battlefield. 

Additionally, I am going to base them, however that is not necessary as they come on relatively stable bases.

Here is the website where you can order them:

I highly recommend them.  And that is your terrain on the cheap for the month!  Huzzah!


  1. Nice find Steven. The scale looks great.

  2. Thanks, Paul. Going to work wonders for my Vietnam and South Pacific gaming.
