Burma, Vietnam and many more. The image of a squad picking their way through a bamboo jungle is so very evocative. Think Ken Burns Vietnam documentary and 'Fortunate Son' playing in the background or 'Paint It Black'.

But a lot of wargamers misunderstand bamboo jungles. When they set it up on the wargames table it's full of other plants and undergrowth. This is a bit of a misnomer.

Bamboo Jungle Facts

  • Bamboo is a fascinating plant. We grow it, harvest it, use it to build and even eat it!
  • There are about 1200 varieties.
  • It's the fastest growing plant on earth.
  • Different species grow anything from 1" to 35"(nearly 1m!) a day
  • Bamboo stops growing after the first year, some after a few months. But can be up to 100ft+ by then.
  • It is actually a grass.
  • Their rhizome roots spread out for huge distance.


So, you can see bamboo is vigorous, competitive and with it's leaf cover, roots and growth rate, kills nearly all competition. 

Your bamboo jungle terrain should not have bushes and undergrowth, only a bit of grass. It mostly occurs within other jungle. So it makes a great idea to mix it up and provide a challenge on your gaming table
