I was going to give this post a catchier title, but inspiration fails at the moment. Also it's about trees. On the surface not very exciting, but in reality (or at least the tabletop version) a couple (or more) of trees dotted on the table really bring it to life.

One of the problems for a cash strapped Dad like myself is the cost of quality trees. So when hunting on Ebay I stumbled across a supplier of cheap trees (with that terrifying ebay tag "from China") for around £9 for 20 (18 months ago) I thought I'd take the plunge. They arrived in due course and then sat in their bags until now.

Plastic textured trunks and plastic parsley like foliage. I liked the shape of them, they just needed some touching up. So some light spraying of green paint,a bit of dry-brushing to the bare plastic trunks and a little light green foliage highlighting (or blobbing to be more accurate) and here we are. Based on 25mm mdf bases I bought from Warbases at Targe. Pretty happy with how they look even with my quick pimping. Only another 16 to go...

  1. An advantage of 15's is that regular trees really look like trees. They usually seem a bit tiny in 28's.
