Default Desert Terrain

I play witch hunters and i have a gaming table. It is a fold up table with yellow cloth hot glued (I don't know what u call it. Involves glue gun)to it. So next to that it has lichen from a hobby store on it. Very Basic. And dry. I need something to add to the table next to rocks and paint cans.

I have bases for terrain and balsa wood i just need ideas

Sand dunes!? Just make a hill cover it in sand and paint it yellow. Cactusses, thickleaved desert plants, an IG on a cactus (very uncomforteble :-X), a skeleton half burried in the desert sand, tumbleweed...Don't know anything more at the moment. ??? Hope this'll get you started.

Go find a picture of a desert that you like the look of, and take your inspiration from there.

Old wrecked gas stations, adobe huts, crumbling highways, road signs, dried-out oasises (oasi??) etc, etc.

The highways are really easy, just take a long sanding paper, paint it black, drybrush grey, paint on white strips and glue it to a base of some kind.

If you don't want to buy terrain than you could just put a book under another piece of cloth for cover.
