Last February, I posted a picture of some citadel wood trees in the very beginnings of work. Here is that picture in case anyone is curious and doesn't want to go 4 pages back.
As you can see, its minimal work I did on these. Basically all I did was cut from the sprue, cleaned up a little bit, and some milliput to cover the seams. Last night, I didn't really feel like painting any dwarves, but I wanted to paint. I did a bit more work on the trees since that picture was taken, and they were primed and ready to go. Here is the outcome of last nights work.
I opted to go with a dead look to these trees. I remember reading a white dwarf awhile back and saw a picture with a ton of these white looking citadel trees, and I wanted to replicate this. I cut some bases out for them, added a bit of mixed sand, and a few extra features to give it my own flavor.
Nothing says awesome quite like a bunch of skeletons laying about. I believe I bought a box off the wargame factory which has some awesome (and cheap) skellys to add to any bland terrain item to give it that awesome battle-hardened look. I think they're heroic 28mm scale, so they'll work with most games. I'm thinking about tossing some more money down and buying another 3 boxes of citadel wood to do a whole dead forest. I think it turned out pretty awesome.
