We are nearing the end of the first step in creating my Endor themed table for Star Wars Legion. The trees have always been my most feared aspect of creating the table but I can honestly say that I have overcome that fear and ready for the next challenge.
This Bothan Report will show you how to finish off your trees and get them table ready.
Assembling your tools and parts
-Finished Tree trunk
-White school glue
-Foliage ( moss flock)
-prepared tree trunk base
-Twigs and wood foliage
-paper bag to collect the mess
-Mixing container for the white glue
Use your mixing container and create a blend of water and white glue. No need to get precise just add enough water so that the glue mix can be applied with your sacrificial brush. Coat the base of the tree trunk and get all the cracks around the scatter timber as well as the edges of the base so the flock has good coverage when you apply it.
Above you will see some reference pictures I took from a park near my house. I swear it could have doubled for Endor!
Your Endor tree is now finished! Feel free to experiement with different shapes and sizes of trees to add to your table. I have a horizontal tree trunk ready to go as well as some in the pics below. Use the techniques in these articles and you should do just fine.
Thanks for tuning into the " Building Endor" articles and get ready for the next step where we dive into creating the board itself!
