Palm Groves WIP

Three shots showing my other palm groves as they stand at the moment. The top two pictures show how I use expanded polystyrene as a base for areas of jungle/general vegetation, in this case with palm trees growing out of the under growth. They are painted in mat black acrylic so that any bits which I miss when covering them in vegetation are not so noticeable.
In the second picture down you can see a area in front of the jungle area which I have cut out of the base and will become a small pool.
In the bottom picture the are two fox holes cut into the poly-board base. With small piles of stone on the top to make it easier the remove the plugs of poly-board when the fox holes are activated.

The foxhole plugs are a great idea, which I may shamelessly steal at some point.

Looking very cool. Have you thought about leaving the tops of the trees off, as if the trunks were so tall that the foliage is out of the picture, to so speak?

I have done trees without foliage tops for my 28mm woodland terrain. It looks pretty cool and allows me to play in the woods without having to move them off the table.

Hi Chaps, thanks for the comments, feel free to steal all the ideas you need. The palm groves have moved on quite a bit since this post, so new pictures are comming quite soon.
