Alien Trees

A new design for alien trees that I came up with the other day. In 6P scale the trees, not including the bases, are a smidge over 20' tall. Each stand of trees can absorb one hit before being reduced below the height limit for cover in Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack.

That's a nice usage of those parts. I like it.

Another attempt at making alien trees. Inspired by a conversation with John Templeton during the last Mobile Frame Zero hangout. Each level of the tree is one hit. The tree on the left can take two hits and the one on the right four, before being brought below the height limit for cover in MFZ.

Those wing trees are magical! I'd love to see the white one in a winter setting.
Water is patient.
Water just waits.
Wears down the cliff tops, the mountains.
The whole of the world.
Water always wins.

I had a bunch of the bushel part from the Berp Mixel set lying around. I've finally figured out what to do with them. Each tree will take one hit before being destroyed.

Love the look of the barrel trees. They could even represent some sort of lamp post or transponder bouey. Might make a fairly simple yet recognizable station, even.

I was thinking about that. They might make for some interesting "cargo pods" for Intercept Orbit if put them on a different base.

Another attempt to use less-than-optimal parts as terrain for MFZ: RA. Each tree will take one hit before being destroyed.

More messing around with odd parts for MFZ:RA terrain. These trees can take one Hit each before being destroyed.
