Last night I spent some time working on a miniature for my friend Marcus whom I play D&D with. He had struggled to find a model that made Woof come to life, hope my attempt does.
Woof is a feral dwarf, brought up by dogs I believe, who says very little but is ferocious in a brawl.
I have used a GW, LOTR, dwarf to base this miniature on, basically covering him in furs, teeth and hair. I've added some details to give that adventurer look, small back packs and a bed roll, although I can't imagine him using the roll at all.
I'm no seeing Marcus till the 8th of Jan so I will get it painted for him too after I show him where we are with the miniature so far.
In order to make up for the distinct lack of snow on this Christmas day I thought I would post this small piece of icy terrain I've made for Frostgrave. I have included to pictures of how I got to the end result as well.
Hardboard base and left over clear glass shards from a garden centre.
Used Das to build a raised are in th centre and then pressed the glass into it and worked the Das up the sides for effect and strength.
Once the Das had dried I added stones, grit and sand and then sprayed with watered down PVA glue.
When that had had half an hour on the radiator I painted all but the glass white.
Then I made a wash by combining, GW green ink, my watered down dark oak wood stain, washing up liquid and water. This I dripped over the majority of the model. left it to dry again.
Added some more PVA from spray and sprinkled some white display sand I have been saving from the Range and that was the whole process.
Lights behind the glass shards look interesting, wonder if I can make another but add a small circuit with lights attached to get a glow effect.
