If You Go Down To The Woods Today.


Well I've finally got my trees finished , the delay being due to real life and other painting projects . Here we see General Smyth and a small patrol from the Boresetshires reconnoitring the new woods.


I gave the trees a coat of gloss varnish then painted the leaves dark green , I then highlighted the edges of the leaves with a lighter shade and painted the bases .


Here we see the General Staff of 'Black' Army using the woods to plan some dastardly action against 'Red' Army.



Hopefully the woods will be appearing in a battle between the two forces in the near future.

  2. I love these! Missed the original post somehow.

    I bet they would also work with your Irregular 40mm Big Wars armies, not that the current trees you use don't fit very well already.

    Just the other day I was looking at 3 54mm flat resin trees from a Barszo playset that I bought nearly 20 years ago and once again wondered if I should paint them and get/make more. I think I should go away and pretend I didn't see these...
