    Very nice stuff. The tatoos turned out well and fit the minis well. Loooove the base diorama thing btw.

    Maybe it's just me, but the light color around the base edge draws my eye right to it. Maybe darken it so the eye is pulled to the diorama and helps hide the grain of the wood used?

    The diorama looks ace! Very nicely done!

    You're right, but the grain problem won't go away with a dark color. I've made a board game for my brother and even with several layers of black the veins still pop up, as you can see below...

    I would prefer to work with a light grain wood, but it's difficult to come by where I am.
    I'll probably pass a dark gray later on, more on the hue of the rocks...

    I think you would need to do this before doing the groundwork because of the sanding involved, but a grain filler would work for future projects. Apply, let dry, sand then paint.

    You would need to find a local equivalent in DIY home improvement/Hardware/Lumber shops.

    Another option would be to glue a veneer strip onto the edge.

    Thanks! I'll try that next time.

    So, next adventure: Dreadfleet!! You are probably wondering why I do mostly closed box sets. Reason: I still haven't found a decent place in Portugal to buy the minis I like!

    Having taken that of my chest, here goes some pics of what I've done so far:

    did the rocks and the eyes of the sculls

    not sure about the big sculls... they pop up when I hit it with light, but when is just normal light it seems to fade...

    As usual, opinions and tips are welcome

    Finish painting most of the terrain minis. Just the turtle, volcano and castle to go.

    On the pieces with boats on it, I chose to give the wood and sails a first layer of brown and light grey, so you could see it trough the salt and seaweeds layers. I like the result.

    They do look very good, like the effects on the boats very realistic looking

    Here's a new finished terrain piece.

    As you can see, I made some alterations from the White Dwarf and Rule book illustrations. It made more sense to me, if the castle was implanted by magic on the rock, that the difference was plain to see, as a clean cut, between reef stone and continent stone. Also, the inside of the towers are a different stone color/ texture than the outside.

    That looks really cool, Alexis! I like how you changed up the stone between the castle and the rock and the inside and outside. The glowing eyes of the skulls are fantastic! I'm seeing a nice variation in the rock color, and it may be the photos because it's tough to photograph something that big - but keep going with the color variation on the rocks. Add purple, greens, and blues but vary the size and density on each rock. The colors are just a tad too uniform, especially in the first picture, but I can see some subtle changes and it is looking fantastic. I know you said it's finished, so this is just for future reference. The purple would look really great in the deep crevasses. You've started going that direction - take it just a bit further. Nicely done tho - I would have been going nuts painting that much gray on such a large piece. lol!

    Looks really good. The roofs are especially good, the shading and highlights bang-on.

    Thanks Kath. Because the box ins't for me, I didn't want to change the color squeme too much, but I'll try that next time I've to paint rocks
    Not that difficult to paint: the minis are rather big and if you use dry brush, is farly quick.

    Thank Marj.
