DIY Terrain: Gnarly Tree - Circle of Orboros Devastation Objective - Effigy of the Devourer

Hey guys! Here is a quick DIY terrain tutorial on how I made a giant gnarly tree out paper, aluminum foil, and tons of glue.

Circle Orboros Objective for the Devastation Event

I tried a couple other ways to make a gnarly tree using real tree branches but it never seemed to look right. I tried using foam as well but it didn't give me the texture I wanted.

I was looking through the kitchen for something I could use and I stumbled upon some Aluminum Foil.

Tree shaping with Aluminum Foil

STEP 1: Create the Base & Trunk - For the base, I used an old CD and coated it with Tacky Glue and covered it with sand. I used crunched up paper for the bulk of the tree and then wrapped aluminum foil around it to make the trunk.

STEP 2: Make Branches and Roots - For the branches I just rolled out long and short pieces of aluminum foil and glued them where they would look cool. I then used a hot glue gun to seal all the edges so it wouldn't fall apart.

STEP 3: Coating it with Glue - The tree needed something because the foil had too many sharp edges so I decided to coat the entire thing in Tacky Glue in hopes it would blend everything together. This was a really messy process and took about 10 hours to dry completely.

STEP 4: Prime & Painting - I had some left over spray paint and primed the tree black. After that dried I did some dry brushing of grays and browns to give it color.

Here's a picture with the finished tree. I didn't have any Circle Orboros units at the office so I just took a picture with Ruin.

Here's another picture of the completed tree. It was quite fun to make and hopefully will help me win another coin at the Devastation Event!
