With the 28mm Napoleonic naval game behind me it’s time for a new project. I’ve been inspired by Arteis and have been looking for opposition for the naval parties I now have. I’ve also always been fascinated by the Maori.
This means ferns, flax and the iconic cabbage tree. Here are some inspiration pics:
I’ve bought some fake shrubbery to use. Probably too big, but we’ll see. I’m also going to try laser cut paper and see how that goes.
Update: I think I’ve figured out how to do the flax, toi toi and part of the cabbage trees. I found this article on modeling toi toi for s scale railroad. I’ve created a file in illustrator to cut these using the laser. Some kinks to iron out of the process, but I’m pretty happy with the test result.
