Trees are a common sight on gaming tables and in dioramas alike. The bottle brush variety is cheap and cheerful, but hardly naturalistic. I consider trees an opportunity to craft true centerpieces, that will awe spectators and gaming buddies alike. So far I fashioned highly realistic yew, birch, hazel, beech and oak trees. All trees are based on a wire skeleton and various techniques to sculpt or carve the bark texture. Finally, the foliage is usually MiniNatur for decidous trees.
