From MilesR: Trees and a Hill & Cold Wars (120 points)
Both tree stands are pine trees and will work well in a "Old West" setting - as evidenced by the figures on the path. My apologies for the picture quality and setting but my hobby room is a wreck after getting back from Cold Wars.
Points wise the larger tree section is 14 inches long by 8 inches wind and 9 tall, so that's so that's 1,008 cubic inches or 4.67 terrain "cubes". The small one is a quarter circle with a six inch radius and 13 inches high. The area of a circle is (radius squared times pi) so we get (6 inches squared times 3.142) which equals 113 square inches. Divide that by four and that's 28.3 square inches. Now take that time the height of 13 and one gets 367.9 cubic inches or 1.70 terrain cubes. Now we can blah, blah, blah.....
Oh hell 4.67 + 1.7 equals 6.37 terrain cubes or 127.4 points. Lets discount that by 30% and stick with 90 points. The Hill's pretty simple and I'll just toss that in for 20 points - it takes up more space than that but it's a very simple terrain model. Hey you guys still awake? Lets just go with 110 points.
here. Warning - I'm in the video in all my glory. Ok there may not be a lot of glory there....

And here I thought that Trees generally whispered vice wimpered in the wind!
These look great Miles, not only as an AHPC submission, but in bringing your demonstration game table to life. Congrats on your award winning game at Cold Wars! Take 5 extra points per award, for a total of 120 points
