Seven years ago I started on some snow terrain (16 bases of trees) that never really saw the light of day nor a finished table. I couldn't keep the tree mats from curling up and just gave up and moved on. Last year I picked up some more trees after Christmas for cheap and this week I finally started trying to finish a table, this is the result.
The tree bases are canvas, with DAP Alex caulk spread thin and stipped with a wet brush to texture it. Once that dried I coated them in gesso and covered them in Woodland Scenics snow and a sprinkling of their green blended flock. After that, I sprayed watered down white glue and then a matte spray. So the flock is locked in there pretty good now. The hills are from War Torn Worlds and pretty much got the same treatment. For the rocks I used warm grays and tans with washes and drybrushes.
I think I also want to do some larger hills as well, maybe I can finish them up before NEAT next month.
I finished up my Dwarf General and remaining Rune Priest characters for the Historicon tournament last weekend. The General is an unreleased figure that I converted to be holding a hammer instead of a stein. The banner/musician behind him on the right is unreleased as well.
One Rune Priest was a weapon swap while the other was unreleased. The banner here is unreleased as well. I need to track down the decals I did for these to truly finish them up. They're lost at the moment.
Finally, I've been distracted by these 15mm New Israeli from Ground Zero Games. I sanded down their integral bases and put them on washers.
I headed down to King of Prussia, PA this past week to host a Warmaster Revoluation tournament and play in an Epic Armageddon tournament. Pics below!
We had 11 people register for Warmaster, but due to health issues, traffic and life commitments ended up with 6 for two rounds and four for the last round. Dwarves, Daemons, Dogs of War, Bretonnians, Lizardmen and Orcs made up the armies and we played a few scenarios out of the Revoluation book and one off of Kris's blog.
For Epic we have 8 people for the day, including Death Guard, World Eaters, Dark Eldar, Biel-tan, Krieg, Steel Legion, Minervan and Tyranids. My 27 DC of Imperial might managed to take home the win after a cagey game of cat-and-mouse against Jon's Death Guard that went to points in the last game.
