A tree for Chris and a Tiger for Laffe (WIP5)


First the new version of the Ambush pattern for the Tiger. More fields added, and markings added on the turret.




Second, Chris asked about winter trees. Here is my first attempt. It is supposed to be a birch in winter-time Finland.



It is simply a Woodland Scenic tree armature painted with white textured paint. I'm not sure it looks very good, but I think it might work when deployed en masse mixed with fir and pine trees.



This is the white paste in question. I bought it at a Lidl supermarket but I reckon any arts and crafts store will have something similar called acrylic paste or medium or some such.

  1. Thanks. I will be making a bunch of these soon. I have a bunch of the armatures laying around that need to become winter trees. How did you texture the paint? Did you add something or buy it that way?

    1. Please see above. I took pics of the jar and added to the original post. I think Lidl are only established in Europe, but googling acrylic textured paste gave a million his including where to buy and how to make your own.

    1. Goodie! Next step the mudguards, then on to those little dots. And attaching tracks, or perhaps that comes before the mud guards.
