The WW1 Palestine Campaign is wrapping up from a painting and scratch-building point of view. This week I finished off a few remaining terrain items and a couple of Turkish units. Next will be to run a campaign and test out the rules with a number of games.
This first terrain items I want on the tabletop is some cactus. Cactus groves and hedges were a feature of the terrain in Palestine. To make them I used the leave from a plastic plant picked up at a craft store. The leaves were cut up and stuck on MDF board using a hot-glue gun.

When I completed the last group of Turkish cavalry I thought I would also make up a light armoured car for them.
