Through a Forest, Darkly - How to Make an Ancient Yew Tree for 28mm

If you are interested how to make one yourself check out the detailed tutorial with many pictures on Dagger and Brush:

That is a MOST IMPRESSIVE piece of scenery...a FINELY crafted, BEAUTIFULLY painted, AND HIGHLY IMAGINATIVE creation.!

The write up was SPLENDID. I love the background scenery. VERY WELL DONE

You are very welcome lads and lasses.


I recently finalised some oak trees and wanted to share the results. I also wrote  a short article on my blog about making trees in general more realistic.

I address bark texture, foliage, trunk and crown shape, scenic basing and critters.
