Now, a week later, I have completed thirteen of them, and I'm very pleased with the result. Okay, I know, they do not look like real trees should. But hey, they are for my Song of Blades and Heroes setting, and since we are talking fantasy, more or less anything is allowed!
Okay, here are two photos of the final products, with a 15mm orc lurking in the woods for reference:
And here are a couple of work-in-progress photos:
|Found a box of washers in the garage. Good|

|The first cone attached to a washer/base.|
Used spackling paste and some stone

|All cones attached to one washer each! Next they|
were all coated in Chaos Black and then painted.
