On a nice sunny afternoon last week it sat in the garden and stuck together some Merit Alders that I picked up on eBay….
I wasn’t sure whether to leave these as they came or put some paint on them… in the end I decided to paint them… I think they go better with the way I am painting the miniatures-and now the buildings.
I did attempt to glue them together using No More Nails Invisible… this only partially worked… so they are just mostly glued. I think that they will be robust enough… it’s not like I am going to throw rocks at them.
I think that the trees which are an overall dark olive green are the older ones and the more multi-coloured are… relatively speaking… the newer ones. The older ones are made of a better quality plastic and have less flash… I briefly considered trimming the flash off, but decided that life is just too short for that kind of thing.
Once the trees were all assembled I gave them a good spray of Humbrol Grass Green.
The Trunks were painted with Citadel… Dryad Bark.
The Leaves were given a light dry brush of Foundry… Phlegm Green Light 28C.
Everything was given a spray of… Citadel… Munitorum Matt Varnish.
