    Isn’t it odd how sometimes the simplest things can have the biggest impact.
    That mine entrance wins.

    That is some really nice model making.  What is your technique for painting the natural wood effect?  I have got some carts and barrels to paint and that is just the kind of look I’d like to achieve.

    thanks guys, the mine entrances are probably my favourite pieces too, im going to use the plain one for a orc/goblin cave entrance.

    General, for the old wood look, I undercoated in black, and then painted it (unevenly) with Vallejo US Field Drab, before dry brushing with a Bone colour and washing with agarax earthshade (again unevenly)

    Oh, man, the new photos with the scenic bases are absolutely amazing – really bring the collection to life – the new Leven buildings are going to be hard to resist……. Does the town have a name, BTW? – gotta have a good name…….
