Tutorial: How to paint a pink “cherry tree” Awakened Wyldwood
Painting an Awakened Wyldwood isn’t an easy feat. It’s a large set with no less than ten pieces of branches to paint for each tree, so you might need some advice. In this easy to follow 32 step tutorial, I’m going to show you how I painted my set in a striking pink cherry (or sakura) tree style, without the need of an airbrush, with just good old washing and drybrushing.
Showcase: “Cherry Tree” Awakened Wyldwoods
I’ve painted an Awakened Wyldwood from the Warcry Souldrain Forest set in a pink “cherry tree” paint scheme. Now I know why Games Workshop dubbed this kit as soul draining, because these trees are probably the least enjoyable models I’ve assembled and painted in a long time. Or, like ever. Anyways, check out the pictures of the finished set.
