I do like bridges for wargames scenarios - they are great for capturing , destroying , defending , retreating across etc. I wanted a decent sized one for my WW2 15mm forces - so here it is .
The central span arch girder was sourced as a OO gauge railway MDF set - cost £8.50 free delivery !
I built the piers and ramps from foam board and MDF sheet with the brickwork from a brick pattern embossed sheeting - the railing on the ramps is made from pins and wire. A quick bit of kit bashing later and voila!

actually really - this is what inspired me since i was about 6 ...
you know it ... go on - you really do know whats going to happen
I have also finished off the stock of trees I had in my terrain "to do" drawer. These are trees usually for model railways - they are made by Busch and are a mix of sizes 40- -60 mm high. They are good for small 15mm of reasonable 6mm. This tops my trees collection up to about 300 - enough to nicely fill a good sized table

They are based on a range of shapes 2mm MDF that i get from Warbases.
Volume wise they take up 1 and 1/2 terrain cubes
over to , the best , top , superb , mega honourable minion Tamsin for points ! with luck this takes me over 1000 points and a third of the way to my target -.. Millsy eat my shorts....
right where did i put my camels
Enough of the sucking up, Dave! OK, suck up some more!
That bridge looks just the thing for Martin to try to capture and "hold until relieved". I'm guestimating a little here, but assuming the ramps max out at 2" high, I'm going to score that as 1.5 terrain cubes. That'll give you thirty points. And another thirty for the woods.
However, I think you need to check your maths - 1000 points is two-thirds of the way to your target, unless I am greatly mistaken. As for Millsy eating your shorts, I don't believe that was a part of your side-duel, but perhaps it should be!
