Just under a year ago, I finished my riverine terrain for Vietnam, and realized that much of my 28mm jungle foliage was simply too big to use for my 20mm Vietnam gaming. This past weekend, I finally got around to working on some greenery for my Vietnam terrain.
Most of my time was spent working on the ground cover. I figure that some of the foliage will consist of lychen, and bushy plants doing double duty from 15mm African and 28mm Pacific projects, but I wanted to add some contrasting textures, so focussed on making ferns and cycads with a small mix of other plants thrown in.
All of the plants shown int he photo below were made from various artificial plastic ferns from the craft store. The first three were made from different Asperagus ferns, which have fine leaflets. The leaflets were cut off of the main frond stem, and then glued to a styrene or metal washer base to create a 20mm scale fern fronds.
