I made some DIY wire trees and got them painted too! That’s another Check! on the hobby list. I’m on fire (a very slow burning and flickering fire).
The wire trees are made by wire (duh!) stringed together and bent into some kind of tree shape with twigs, branches and roots. The bark is just hot glue pulled and shaped. One of the trees have bark made out of plaster, glue and toilet paper. That barks looks a bit better but it took about forever to do. Hot glue on the other hand … a few minutes a pop.
The trees are glued onto hard board roughly the size of a small blast maker. The edges have been sanded down. I used a mix of plaster, construction glue and sand on the bases to give them some texture. I even put a few stones on them for good measure.
I painted the trees with the Albino Woods in mind. I maybe took the name a bit literally but there is some truly disturbing with pale, white bark. They might not look it but I put a fair bit of work into painting them so shabby. Layers, washes, highlights over and over again.
I continued the desolated winter theme for the bases, bleak and dark colours, a little bit of turf and some snow. It looks very cool with both models and terrain sharing the same basing and theme.
Here’s some pictures of the trees together with the models from Storm of Sigmar.
