    crikey, I had not actually noticed that, maybe I should make a load of standing stones and spikes in the ground?

    Yes please.

    Make them BIG 😉

    two stood against many?

    That’s what’s important.

    Valor pleases you Crom(‘s Anvil)… so grant me one request. Grant me 28mm compatible conan-movie sceney! And if you do not listen, then to Hell (well, maybe Dursley? Or Yate?) with you!

    Yate seems a bit harsh…

    I mean, it has to be fairly hardsh to fit the feel of the quote. To Wotton-under-Edge just doesn’t have the same power…

    Seeing as the ghoul crypt is done, I am now working on the cave of the Ape Men.

    So, I am working on the cave mouth and have hit a brick wall.

    Now, there are 2 routes to follow.
    Right now it has bare vines running up it.

    My preference would be to leave the vines bare as I would add the foliage myself with flock, scatter, lichen, leaves etc and other materials.
    However I would happily spend a good number of hours doing so, leaf by leaf etc..

    The other option is to have an impression of leaves/foliage sculpted on, though with the limits of casting they will not be as ‘real’ looking as foliage added after.

    What would you prefer, bare vines to add your own green (or indeed just leaf them bare)

    Or a sculpted on impression of greenery?

    See above for the cave so far, and below for a reference picture for what I am thinking of. (though obvs not that realistic)

    I think leaving them bare is the better option, if you want to add things it’s easy enough to do 🙂

    I’d go with a suggestion of greenery. Those who just want to paint it and get it on the table will be happy with that and those who want the full, botanical experience can tart it up to their hearts content.

    Perhaps that’s just me?

    Artisanal leaf making, and placing, sounds … I dunno, expensive? Also a Lot of Work for each of those bad boys you make and sell with carefully, thoughtfully, individual placed leafs* just so.

    Also I kinda like the bare vines. This is the Ape Men’s bachelor pad is it not? A few empty beer bottles might add just that bit of sauciness to entice Ape Women over to a kegger

     

     

     

    *Each Leaf is an individual and is placed in a harmonious artistic gestalt so it is Leafs rather than leaves which are just dried crumbly dead plant pieces which my wife makes me rake up each autumn.

    Those ghouls have turned out very nice.

    Shows you do not need spikes and skulls to create something horrible – you know what I mean!

    Not sure if I’m bothered or grateful that none of them are female…

    It does!

    Were it hollow it’d also make for a great aquarium decoration

    On the 1st of July postage rates for goods going to the USA will increase by roughly 40%.

    This is due to the USPS charging other countries more for delivering overseas mail once it reaches US soil.

    I´ve got to repeat me – the amount of detail on all those minis is astonishing! Can´t wait to get my hands on them.

    So here is the cave painted with no extra bits added, all you see here is just the cast model.

    Now, that this version is done, time to pimp it up.
