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.
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
We do our research at Warpaint Figures to bring you the most realistic terrain we can. Our Bamboo Jungle modular terrain reflects that.
Tightly packed stands with just grass on them besides the bamboo.
Easily placed inside our Jungle Terrain to create a more difficult gaming terrain to negotiate for your US Marines, British Burma Army or others depending on the theatre.
Grab a starter set to form a core bamboo oasis then some scatter stands to spread it out. Leave channels for movement or as sight blockers. Grab a medium piece for that denser area.
No matter on the rules you use - Chain Of Command, Bolt Action, Charlie Don't Surf or Rapid Fire our Bamboo Modular Jungle Terrain should serve you well.
