  1. This was started as a small-ish side project, but ended up being a big-ish project. With a lot of new things for me. The ghost is an old mini that I painted many years ago, and was quite happy with at the moment. And as I started up in this hoppy again, I thought I might build a base for it. I wanted it to look dark or low-light, so used a bit darker colors as I would normally have used, but I still wanted to use colors. I'm really happy with the result, I think it's the best piece of landscape I have made. And I learned a couple new things. A big thanks to all that commented and came with ideas and helpfull tips throughout the process. The Wip thread is here. Figures used; The Ghost: I think it is an Ral Partha, as most of my minies from back then seems to be, or does anyone recognise it? Skeleton: 77018 Reaper Skeleton Archer set, converted. Skulls and grave stones: Ristuls. Vegetation: Army Painter turfts, Noch and some home-made from an old brush. Tutorials more or less followed; Hanging moss on the tree: http://laughingferret.blogspot.com.au/2011/04/to-z-spanish-hanging-moss-tutorial.html A lot of good stuff: https://daggerandbrush.wordpress.com/
  2. Thank you. I also really like the glowing ghost :0)
  3. Well, you asked for it.. here is even more photos, close-ups with more light. And Uuuh does they show some flaws and mistakes :o) ..
  4. Thanks for answering. He would have matched perfectly into an idea with a drinking goblin boss from Avatars of War I have; "discussing the fine art of brewing"
  5. Thank you everyone. I thought it fitted the scene to be a bit dark, but maybe it was too much..
  6. Worhh I like this! It fits him to be growling with his teeth showing.. Do you know if it is still possible to buy this figure anywhere?
  7. Great.. that freehand is amazing!
  8. Super nice Goblins! And great result on the OSL.. gotta try that myself one day.
  9. Absolutely amazing!! WOUW!
  10. What the Necromancer just said!! Amazing!!
  11. So I will try my hand at a Wip. I have been working a while on this base. It's for an very old mini I painted many years ago. It's a quite big base for just one lilltle mini, but that dosen't really matter as I enjoy making the base as much as the mini .. but more about that later.. The tree is not completely finish, there is still some wire visible, and the ghost will get it's base removed. BUT i'm not totally happy about the tree, I wanted the branches to be claw-like .. and they sort of are, but maybe just to big or .. I don't know .. so any ideas to make it better is very welcome! It a tombstone lying down between the roots, a few skulls and a skeleton on the other side, just barely visible (left-side of top picture). The pictures are; back-side, left-side and front-side of the base.
  12. Love the details! And that bike is amazing!!!
  13. That was exactly why I asked :0). I put on some more hanging moss. I think it is looking a bit less in the pictures.. and I think I will call it done. Might do a little bit of highlighting on the moss.. next pictures will be in Show Off. (This is going to be difficult to photograph!) thank you so much to everyone who commented, came with ideas or just looked. This has been a super fun project, with a lot of new stuff for me. Thank you! Lars.
  14. I think youre right, Google also tells me to go Way heavy'er.. I was just thinking that it easily Got out of hand when I was making it. .. but I love the look of it, it really adds to the spooky-look!
  15. For the last flocking done, and started on the hanging moss.. more or less or just fine?? Maybe I will trim it a bit shorter.. critiqs and comments and opinions are welcome
  16. I have just done some flocking. I painted it darker, gave it a Black wash and highlighted with light green and then spotish- highlight with Yellow-green. You Can see the result in the Ghost Story Wip-thread. I also wanted it to look like beeing dark -ish. Looking forward to see your result.
  17. Progress!! Got a few things done.. More moss, figured out I should mix a lot more glue and less flock, to make it look better. I added another gravestone, also with a little moss. I tried to pick out a few 'leaves' in the moss, but I didnt like the look of it, so painted it over. I startet flocking, and decided to paint the flock. Dark green, black wash, drybrush with light green, and spottish drybrush with yellow-green. I added a snake in the grass, made from greenstuff.. might make it a bit darker.. And I added a few more plants. Not all of them are the color I want them to be...and some of them have a dot of white glue at their base. I gave the stairs a brown wash (Army Painter Soft Tone), and I really like the look of it. They seem a little gloss..more like satin..and I like that, as if they are wet/slippery. The spanish hanging moss os not far a way ..thats gonna be interesting As always comments and critiqs are welcome.
  18. yearh..beast!
  19. Super Nice sculpting!!
  20. The store manager is right! This is really looking good.
  21. Art! love the wierdness.
  22. I could not find the Woodland Scenic Fine Turf, so bought this instead, and on the picture from the shop it looked very fine, but I can see now that the WS Fine Turf is different, might see if I can find it elsewhere. Hmm, might pick out some leaves.. I have been looking at several of your tutorials, and they are really interesting. Thanks for sharing those, Its a great blog! I will look at the woodfiller-mortar. And next big step will be flocking the black areas..Ive done a small test, but found the color a bit too light.. so more testing. thanks for looking :0)
