Terrain is everything - T'is the season to pick up trees

A few years ago I picked up a bag of model trees from Dobbies, our local garden centre [and craft shop]. They only have them in the run up to Christmas as they're for making your own Christmas scene with miniature revellers and holiday nik-naks. I managed to pick up a couple of sets post Christmas a couple of years back 50% off and I've just had a look online.


They are on sale at Webb's Garden Store again at just £6.99 with £4.95 postage, so I thought I'd share so everyone can get a chance at a bargain. There may be other offers online, this was just the first hit I got off Google. The set I got was 21 pieces from a company called Lemax. Clearly there's at least two that are just a bit too big, they're the same size as my 40k outpost that got bigger! but great line of sight blockers for a Trygon!


Of course the originals weren't going to fit with my table so I decided to paint them - undercoating them all in Red Oxide primer and then repainting them in shades of yellow.


Although I still have to complete the 2 newer sets here's the finished first set:
