Alien Plant Life

Much of the Flora and Fauna of Earth was transplanted to the colonies during their terraforming, but much of the native plantlife and animals survived. The Federal Army often finds itself waging war amongst the most exotic and strange foliage.


I used the tops of some dried out poppies at the back of the garden to make these suitably alien plant forms. I'd love to do more but I suppose I'll have to wait until the same time next year. The figures are a Khurasan Federal fusion gunner and supporting infantryman (top) and a Special Forces (not Arnie from Predator) from The Scene (bottom). Here's an in-progress pic of the planets before the bases were finished...

Very nice plants, and scale nicely with 15mm figures.

Aye, I agree. Those work wonders. I was planning similar at 28mm scale, but it looks more effective here methinks.

I can't see any reason why these can't be used alongside any scale figures. They are "alien" plants after all. I just need a few more to cover the board. It looks a little sparse at the moment.
