Yes, if you look on YouTube for “Wire Tree Tutorial - Model Railroad” by Luke Towan, that’s the one I watched. I used finer wire than he did, and when you see his, you’ll see how much nicer his is. I made mine bigger to fit the 28mm mini sizes better. Also, I used moss for most of my trees instead of the foliage he used.

 Nice job ... what game(s) will you use them in ... I used to build multi tree bases to make 'forested' areas and leave the trees removable for larger things moving into the area marked by the base ... worked well for table top war games that used 'area' terrain rules.

Well, in my daydreams I’ll use them for D&D, Boot Hill, or a prehistoric D&D game I’d like to run.  But realistically, they aren’t very transportable, and they’re kind of obstructive on the tabletop. So I’m not sure if they’ll ever get used. I might make some more and just leave them with no vegetation so that they at least don’t block the view of what is where on the table. Shrug. I dunno.

Boot Hill ... so classic,  gave my copy with several modules to my cousin on his last birthday ... he is big on collecting old school TSR .

 

 It had my go to combat system for Top secret and gangbusters ...

Yeah, my group has been considering Top Secret and Gangbusters, and I’ve considered offering to run Star Frontiers. We are all a bunch of old farts.

      While I did keep him fairly basic, I'm happy with how he turned out. Unfortunately my inability to photograph metallics properly has kinda ruined my piccys of him.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a 77341 Lioness. This Bones model was sculpted by Geoff Valley. I painted it as a Black (Blue) Panther.
      I kept the original base and sculpted additional high grass around to incorporate it to a larger 2 inches square base. The trees are dried roots.

      Presenting Tzandi, a member of Monkey's Troupe from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Been painting this one on and off for a while, as I could only work on her teeny tiny details in small bursts (She essentially feels like a much larger scale mini that's been shrunk down). I think taking my time paid off as I'm pretty pleased with the results.
      This also means I've actually finished a set of something for a change (At least until Long Ma the dragon comes out):-

      Presenting the Scarecrow, part of Dorothy's gang in the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I did have to leave out some of the finer details though, there's little, tiny stitches all over him that I could barely see never mind paint!

      Like an ageing 70's rock band heading out on yet another final tour, I fancied having another go at making a WIP thread.
       
      This time I have two different companies take on the Steampunk genre.
      Warcradles Nautilus crew from their Lost World Exodus line:-
       

       
      In the back row we have Violet Smee and Sardar Hardit Singh, and the front row consists of Neko Mei, Erasmus Darwin, Charlotte Anning and Rani Nimue.
       
      These minis are a lot better sculpted and cast than the last lot I got from the range. Changing hands seems to have done the game good, mini-wise at least.
       
      And Demented Games Oz Gang from their Twisted Game:-
       

       
      At the back we have the Scarecrow, the Tin-man and the Drunken Cowardly Lion, and in front Mecha Toto and Little Dorothy.
       
      First I've made a start on Singh:-
       

       
      Trying out a new paint colour, Barbarian Flesh. 
      His skintone isn't exactly screaming Indian, but I like it.
       
      I also had a go at the Scarecrow:-
       

       
      So far he has a Cork Brown head, Yellow Ochre hair, Iraqi Sand teeth, Bronze and Andrea Blue eyes and I've painted the underside of his hat Medium Olive.
      He also has a line of very fine stitches going up the centre of his face that I'm not even going to attempt to paint.
