Tired of basic looking trees and rocks scattered across your table to represent your far-distant planet? Me too! I play plenty of games, such as 40k and the soon to released, Star Wars Legion, that take place across alien worlds with unique fauna dotting the landscape. I got tired of using normal trees and bushes and wanted to make my battle zones look truly alien. I decided to build my own plant life so it actually looked like we were fighting over another planet; something very different than Earth.
Nothing screams alien to me more than the sea! So that’s where I started. I found the most exotic aquarium pieces and made stands.
I started off with some insulation foam. Not the best material but it wasn’t a waste and turned out alright.
Yes, I know what that looks like…
