Don't be worried about it. I'm probably just so mentally tired.

I always have a pen and pad by my bed, and if I have an idea I would write it down. A lot ends up as rubbish, but some are quite good.

The crypt comes from a large graveyard that I used for wargamming.

You will probably notice a big difference in the quality of the photographs from now on as I am using a better tablet.

Think I finally know how i want the base to look like.

The black area is going to be wild grass to give that strong colour, and I want to put a figure somewhere to give the scale of this Master of the Dark Arts.

More to follow as i progress.



Sorry the photo is a bit blurred the washing machine just went into spin mode. [smile]

I wasn't able to get too much done today. Glossed the armour and put a quick base coat on the cloak. Added the grass and another spirit to the base, bit more still to go.







Thanks for looking.

Okay, I'm calling the base done. I'm not too worried about the finer details due to the size of the model being displayed.

I did want something to compare the size, so I've added a figure (probably the ground keeper of the graveyard) plus I wanted a bit of soft humour added to the scene.



Size means everything, the hight of the chapel balances out the proportions.





Now he looks a little terrified.



All together now....ahh, what a cute little doggie. [smile]

It does look fantastic Nigel, the base is lovely too (is the building a games workshop product ?) the figure does give a sense of scale to the main figure, it's a lot bigger than I though it would be, the paintwork is jaw dropping I can't wait to see the finished piece

This build is really making me want to have a stab at another figure now , Im on the final furlong on the man cave but ive run out of timber, hope the delivery turns up early next week, I need to get back to some models

Wow that figure is huge in the context of the graveyard! Going to look brilliant when it's all together!

Thanks Pete, hope you get that wood soon, and they've sent the correct size.

The building is a GW product, it's part of a set called The Garden of Morr and is a complete graveyard that you can alter to suit how you want it to be of the game board. They've produced plenty of scenery like this to represent villages and fortifications.

As I don't play Warhammer anymore i've still kept all the buildings just in case they come in handy, as is the case with this monsterous model.

I might just add a few blobs of colour to the grass to give the effect of wild flowers (only have to look out at my garden to get references) [smile]
The hardest thing to paint was the puppy, but it's turned out okay looking at the pics. I was going to use rats but i've only got dead ones [rofl]

Not far off being completed. Just need to do the spirits in ghostly green/white and somehow blend that into the purple cloak (that's going to be fun), and then finally pin all the extras on like staff, sword and backpack.

Finally seal it with matt varnish and its done.

After that I have some unfinished builds to do (I am not going to release photos of the finished Phantom until after the special show has been aired) and the next GB has been announced.
If it's a bomber GB i've had it, as i have none in my stash, and I don't think the P-39D Airacobra was one.

If it's the wwii vehicles then I have just the model (not the Chieftain, that's special), let's see how that works out.

Yeah cool, not the fact you won't be in the GB, that's uncool. Do you not like Bombers? Or just don't have one?
