Cheap trees

Ever since I started Warhammer40k, I have been on the constant lookout for items that can be used on the tabletop. Trees are always on my to-look-for item. So much so that my wife knows and she spotted these trees at the mall and told me to check it out. Bless her. 🙂

Christmas is a good time to look out for trees but they are all too large or unsuitable. With this golden find, I quickly bought 4 to try out.

Although the trees are sparkling and standing at 7″ tall without the star, I had a simple plan to transform it into a tabletop worthy tree.

  1. Remove the star.
  2. Shake off loose sparkles.
  3. Paint the base black.
  4. Paint the tree trunk brown.
  5. Most importantly, a coat of matt varnish.

A simple project that doesn’t take more than 15mins (minus the drying time).

Oh ya, found the trees at ‘John Little’ in Jurong Point Mall, $4.90 each and additional 20% discount.

Cheers.
