Tobacco and Corn

I hit my pet store today and bought a few plastic aquarium plants. they were $AU3.95 each - very cheap.

As you can see, you can combine nore than one to form a large field. In my mind, this is tobacco while the one at top is corn. All I need is some toy plastic hogs and I'm made.

The idea is to glue it to a rigid base with the trusty hot-glue gun, give it a light overspray with some tan paint to tome it down a bit, terrain things a bit with some filler-in-a-tube then build a split-rail fence around it. I might cut out the centre of it so it can be removed to admit troops, per one of the "Touching History" Book/Magazine things.
