After working on some canopy for some 6mm war gaming, I had the idea that I could transfer the concept of the canopy to making some hedges/bocage for WWII or jungle type games. At the same time I finished up some support pieces for my Germans in the form of an MMG team, a medic and a comms team. Convenient timing for pictures.
Essentially the base of the bocage is mdf board cut to 6" long and 1.25" wide. I then cut a half inch strip of foam insulation the same length and only a half inch wide. I figured the moss would bulk it out a bit. I was right for once! Then it was glued together and I painted the foam black and the MDF brown. I may go back and paint it green, you can see it peaking out in some of the pictures. Green may blend it in better. Lastly I took a bunch of moss that I purchased from Michael's and used a glue gun to stick the moss in place.
The moss is high enough that it fully covers a standing warlord figure. Great for Normandy scenarios. In total I have about 5' 6" worth of hedges. I had another 6" piece of MDF cut out but it went missing from the cutting stage to the gluing stage. I'm blaming the sticky fingers of a certain two year old.
I am pretty happy on how it looks. I think it will look great along side a road or some farm land. I think I'll also need to make a bunch more too as you can quickly use up 5' of hedges in a hurry!
