Trees from China

By polkovnik, Oct 1 2016 07:09PM

I recently ordered some trees from an ebay seller based in China. These trees cost £X including postage to the UK.

I based them on round mdf bases that fit into a larger irregular shaped base. These were another ebay purchase, that I'd bought some time ago and was waiting for something to use them for. The bases are two different sizes which was handy as there are two sizes of tree.

The bases were textured, painted (brown then dry brushed) and flocked with a woodland undergrowth mix.

The large bases they fit into were given the same treatment.

The finished woods. The trees will normally be used in the larger bases, and can be removed to fit troops in the wood. They will also be used on their own sometimes (for example when I play Command & Colors Napoleonics and have to fit the trees in hexes).

Here they are in action. A couple of days after I'd completed them we played Bolt Action and the new trees were put to good use.

I like your idea of having them separate mine are on one base


Take care
