Over on the Hangar, Malcolm started a discussion thread asking about what people would like to see on his blog.  One of the items mentioned was scenery and the best sets for parts for that scenery.  Since I've posted about the best sets for MFZ before and I've also posted about scenery, I figured I could start talking about this topic.

I was originally going to go another direction with this but I've changed my mind.

Let's look at what's available from Lego in terms of "plant matter".  First we have the Bricklink category of Plants.  There are 17 items most of which seem to be generally available.  Combine a few of those items with a few brown pieces like this, or this, or these and you can make things like the plant life in this picture.

Now, I can hear you asking, "How 'bout them houses?"  We'll get to them soon enough.  You'll notice I'm not much interested in the other Bricklink category, Plant, Tree.  This is because most of the trees in that category are single pieces and don't interact so well with the MFZ rules for terrain damage.  The Palm Tree parts are okay though.

Now, the houses.  They're all copied from the base design set down here by Soren.  Those houses along with a small office building, a mosque, and some cars get you a small village as a battleground.


  1. Yes, that is exactly what I was looking for (Kiwi here) Thanks so much for covering this! :)

    1. I'm planning on more posts dealing with scenery/terrain. I was going to take some pictures of things I've built today, but it's snowing outside.
