'Water Feature' from PaulOG: Desert Oasis

Noting my DAK project of late, my bonus entry topic probably comes as no surprise: an oasis in the desert is key terrain regardless of what era one is playing.
The obligatory "sun shining off the water" shot :-)
While my immediate use is for 15mm North Afrika, I have endeavoured to keep this scale terrain feature scale agnostic.  It is also the first time I have used resin to attempt a water effect, so this Bonus round was useful in pushing my skills envelope!
SdKfz 222 was painted during AHPC 8 and is for scale only
I have used plastic palm trees, painted and drybrushed to reduce the overly artificial look they tend to have out of the packet. They do look better outside of direct sunlight though.

Size wise, this piece takes up approximately 3/4 of "standard (non-metric) terrain cube" so I suppose that is 15 points + the Bonus round.


  1. Looks like an enticing place to stop. Nice work with the resin.

  2. Nice resin and rock work and your right the palm trees have come out really well!

  3. Great little piece, the shadows of the palmtrees is awesome!

  4. Now all we need is Humphrey Bogart and his comrades in an M3 Lee! Lovely bit of work, Paul, well done.đŸ™‚

  5. Wonderful work Paul. It looks ready for Lawrence to ride up on his camel, have a long drink, and say, 'On to Damascus!'

  6. Great looking piece of scenery Paul.
