Branch Collars (2)
Branch Collars are the spot where a branch conjoins with the main trunk or larger branch and the ones we get are usually spaces where a branch fell from the trunk it was attached to. The rings and ridging in the middle are raised as the bark grows over the fresh wood creating some interesting terrain.
Sometimes a thing doesn't fit into a proper category so there needs to be a place for these oddities. In this case odd usually refers to the shape of the piece, but I am sure I can find other odd wood pieces that defy categorization.
Ovals are just rounds that have grown larger over time and spread. You can typically see the smaller round in wood rings of the oval. The reason they are their own category is strictly a function of footprint on the game board or comparison to the miniature you want to place on the piece.
Plinths are typically finished tall pieces of wood, resin or stone that come round or square. Our plinths are larger sections of tree limbs and average two to six inches around and two to six inches high.
Rectangular pieces have cut from natural wood to be the size of cavalry bases.
Rounds are typically branches, usually with the bark still on, cut into disks about 1/8 in (6mm) to 1/4 inch (12mm) heights then sanded, finished and polished. The wood for these will very. They can also be lathed rounds from various woods, some even glued together, sanded smooth with no bark left.
