I had a trawl round 'tinternet looking for 6mm trees but I need a lot and didn't want to blow my figure budget on them. In the end I've scratch built a few.

This isn't the best picture ever. The trees are made of plastic coffee stirrers cut to length and hot melt glued to pennies. The bases are then glued and sanded as with figure bases. The foliage is lumps of packing sponge I got from a box containing some fancy mixer tap we had installed.
Finally I made some road and river using brown paintable window sealant. I followed advice from this website: link but I'm not quite as competent as the author.
So this is everything put together. Reckon it looks okay. Haven't solved the hill problem, however. I need to be able to show forward & reverse slopes plus plateaus in a flexible fashion on a grid. The author of Op14 uses triangles and circles for slopes and plateaus respectively, but I want something a bit more "hilly".
So, thinking cap on.
