Paint Table Saturday 235 - Trees and Baggage

Hi All,

A quick one before we rush out the door to go see Infinity Wars.


The trees just need flock and static grass on their bases and the metal ones need some foliage.


I started building my wagon out of balsa. I want to use Bamboo skewers for posts and axles, but can't find my bag of them. It's annoying.


Here's a general layout with the plaster cast baggage in the background. I'm probably going to clip the horses off their tabs and pin them to the base. I can't decide if I'm going to base the baggage, glue the pieces together or leave them as individual pieces. I like the idea of being able to put figures or other stuff in the back.

Oh and the teachers strike is over. We went back to school Friday and will not have to extend the school year.

Thanks for looking.

  1. Can you make a removable piece for the baggage so you can swap is out?

    1. Hi Millsy, that is the plan I'm just not sure how I want to tackle it.

    2. Maybe a very thin slip-on tray? Something like a thin layer of plasticard for strength with card strips to represent timber boards?

    3. I have a 40 x 40 mm rendera base I'm thinking of using and just painting a dark brown to be not very eye catching.

  3. Looking good. I need to grab some bases for my own trees undecide on what size to use yet.

    1. Hi Simon, thanks. I just used some fender washers I had bought for basing 20mm and things with built up integral bases, ie non slotta. The bottle brush trees had been jammed into some foamcore which was painted a horrible kelly green. So I tore them out and hot glued them to the washers. It worked reasonably well.

  4. I base my trees on large fender washers as well.
    The cart is an interesting project. I’m always impressed by what people build out of balsa wood. 😀

    1. Hi Stew. Balsa was just handy. Scoring the planks into the balsa sheet made it pretty flimsy. Plasticard might be better, but I buried mine somewhere.
