I was moaning yesterday in an email to the Gogs about my inability to finish things at the moment. Once home I peered into my study and it struck me just how much it was annoying me that I had once again let some of these little projects build up. I decided to try and get a few cleared.
First up. Trees.
I had always been looking for a cheap way to make trees and had never really found a process that I liked or had time to do (Don’t mention the Broccoli trees – a moment of madness). In the end I had resolved to buy them slowly but surely, a few at a time, at gaming shows. That way I would not dent my gaming budget or shock myself out of buying more by worrying about the total spend on trees! This had worked well and I’d brought a few when I happened across three bags of trees in someone’s bargain bin. £5 per bag with ten trees in each bag. Thirty trees for £15? Sold! The only drawback was that they needed basing. Not a problem I thought. That’s a quick job. Hmmmmm. They always seem to be quick jobs at that point don’t they.
Anyway……nearly a year later and I have decided to get these sorted and out of the way. Once finished I will have 40-50 odd trees in total that I can use for 28mm or 15mm. That’ll be enough.
I’d cut the bases already so last night I forged ahead and got the bases sanded, textured and the trees stuck to them. They only need a quick paint job on the bases and they will be done. Turns out they are just a quick job after all. It’ll be nice to have them done once and for all.
