El Cheapo plastic trees get a makeover

For something different I thought I would put up some shots of some very cheap plastic trees which I have been repainting and basing. These are the sort of trees you can find in cheap children's playsets with things like plastic animals. They are not much to look at normally, but paint up quite nicely and add a bit of variety to the tree collection. These trees were from my son's collection, but we tend to share terrain stuff. Hope this provides some ideas for cheap terrain.
Trunks painted and stuck down on new bases, waiting to have foliage painted.

A finished tree next to one still being worked on.
A couple of finished articles, they look even better in reality.
Why not try this out, these are just cheap playset trees painted with acrylic paint, based on card, with sand/grit and appropriate flock.
