I have finally painted all the plastic tree terrain I had in my possession. My forest now consists of: one large Hanging Tree, two regular Hanging trees, six regular trees, and six pygmy trees. All done from one Wyrd and two GW plastic kits.
|The forest. You will notice the Guardian of the Golden Bough chilling in there.|
Once both the Citadel Wood kits were finished, I noticed that I had six leftover branches. So I got the idea to make some bushes. These can stand on their own, or some day I could make a larger base that holds several of them- like the one supplied with the Citadel Wood kit, and have area terrain.
When I compared them to human-sized miniatures it turned out they are more the size of small trees than bushes. They are small, but don't really look like young trees (too gnarled and thick), so I just call them 'pygmy trees'.
|The stuff I used: 30mm wooden bases, leftover branches from the Citadel Wood kit, cork, sand. Not pictured: green stuff, brass rod, PVA glue, superglue, plastic cement.|
|I pinned the branches to the bases, and resculpted the base of each trunk with green stuff to get the right growing-out-of-the-ground look. The bases were finished with cork and sand.|
