Finally! Got some trees that work really well with MYTH.

These are the trees you can see in the 2 shots:

Aside from the "Mature Oak" all the trees come in packages of 4 or 5. So there is more than enough tree goodness!
I used the included bases, cut them to MYTH-tile size and painted the edges red.

The Soldiers are Reaper Miniatures:

IMHO this is something MCG should have included from the start. I mean it's cool that we have minis for most of the iconic allies in MYTH but those
fighters / soldiers appear in so many quest and the tokens just feel out of place in a 3D-gameworld.
Cool thing: Even the helmets match the art on the tokens!

Seriously .... this makes those images about 1000x better. Well done!

I thought you had done those yourself - maybe you posted that over on MegaCon's site at some point. I can't imagine what it's like playing at your house! cool

As for MegaCon including in Myth. Yeah, it might have been something people picked up, but I think they had their hands pretty full in that first Kickstarter. They needed to concentrate on what they knew they could deliver (miniatures and cardboard). I can't even begin to imagine the nightmare 3D scenery would have added to that whole project.

Looks great, a little expensive for my teacher budget. I've been looking at the Hobby Lobby tree packs, but they aren't nearly as impressive. Nice job.

I think they look quite fine. Especially the autumn trees are nice and fit many of the tile themes of MYTH. Size seems a bit on the small side with 2 to 3 inches, but for gameplay purposes the smaller trees are better. The "Mature Oak" may look impressive, but there are not many tiles, where you can place it without hampering access to the gaming area... and as much as I like my props, I've learned, that I'm a gameplay-first-kind-a-guy. I bought some 3D dungeon (paper fortunately and not very expansive) for the D&D adventure games and had to learn the hard way, that this kind of stuff tends to get in the way - like a lot. Also setting each tile up took ages and sucked the fun out of the game. That's why I'm still happily resisting Dwarven Forge and friends and my wallet thanks me

Nice,..... I'm hoping that some of the Banner Saga stuff will work as soldiers,... but if not,... I like your solution.

I love the acrylic bases,.... all my stuff is getting that treatment.

I really hope we get a chance to get the MYTH Bannersaga stuff at some point from MCG - I didn't back it as I have no history with the videogame and I wasn't really sold on the concept of the game.

Yeah, I like the clear bases, too. ATM all my non-MYTH minis for MYTH are on clear bases and they blend right in. It gives them a little less "weight" on the gameboard and for most quests where those minis are "only an objective" that's pretty fitting.

Just had a crazy idea: As you seem to like those shots, how about telling a story with those? Like in a comic? The storyline could be from a quest or quest chain?

Perhaps even make a contest out of it? *Heads over to MCG forum - posts - comes back*

Would you enjoy something like this?

fwiw, You can also get trees at Michael's, with a discount coupon. I have the Woodland Scenics Basic Diorama kit, which was $10+ after coupon, and it also has flock and whatnot for basing figures. I also found DIY tutorials, from model railroads:

Oh, they look nice, as well! Thanks!

Part of my "problem" was that there are just SO many sources to buy trees and I have no experience with tabletop wargaming whatsoever. I'm just really happy the trees I got work and look ok! Never wanted to imply that they are the best or the only solution.

What height are the trees if I may ask? It isn't specified on 4Ground's site. Also, where are the extras (cross/grave/pillars/etc) from, and were they prepainted?

Thanks!
