    base update , I added my various little props elements also added some tree stuff and the water pit is now completely filled..I will have to wait a good 24 hours so I can manipulate the base without take the risk of see the water texture run away

    Once ok, the rest will be to add couple wash / texture effect and finish to fill stuff , also couple pass of dry brush for the rocks

    The base, actually I wanted to have a more bluish / white color overall, the clear transparent was cool to see under water but not too obvious, however I make the mistake to do the coloration on the top which kind of kill the clear / transparent effect.
    lesson learned , next time I will either do a pass of colored water on the bottom or simply base coat the hole with the color I want to show through

    Great job on your 2 vignettes. I like the ork and frog. waiting to see the snow vignette.
    I eat crayons!! Do you have any REDS? They taste the best!
    I probably would paint with them better.

    Hi, so I am starting that scene that I had in mind..( still working at finishing my last Wizkids monk figure by the way ).

    All Reaper minis, finally I can get to what I received couple week ago

    Just put reference of the minis here for those interested :

    - Beastman Champion : 77254
    - Crusader Champion : 77550
    - Sigurd Viking : 77399
    - Ogre Clubber : 77454

    Those are the 4 protagonist of that scene.

    I set my size to be 190mm x 19mm x 200mm , just so I can fit that later in the display box I can get here.

    Though this is not set in stone regarding the environment , I certainly going to go for a rocky / snowy landscape.

    for now I just put my set in place for the overall position of each figure.

    You’re not short of ambition! Great start to your thread so far. Keep us updated!

  18. #38


    thanks Hairster, hope I am not too ambitious with that one but I will take my time.

    I cutted some pieces and tighten my layout , need for the glue to dry so I can shape the 2 platform...while waiting I may start priming the minis
