Well, I had started Hirst Arts ruined field stone tower in an attempt to build terrain for Frostgrave. After building some of the wall section, I had a bit of a Cat-trastophy with them. My cat decided those pieces would look better on a cement floor... in pieces. Since I posted in the September goals thread that I want to try and finish the building of the tower this month I thought I would post where I was in my progress. Be warned, my skill are very lacking, as there are several uneven level, but it is a ruined tower.
There are going to be three level inside the tower that are being pressed in an attempt to keep them level. Here is a shot of the pieces apart.
I'll be more than happy to take any advice.

I fished this cute girl out of the Box o' Goodwill from the Reaper forums, so it's only right that she make her way back to another forum member as an exchange mini for Secret Sophie 2016. Tricksay wanted to receive "open to anything"; I love when people pick that, because I can just paint whatever I feel like. Thanks to Bonwirn for giving me a bunch of Hirst Arts blocks to make the diorama out of.
After I took these pictures I realized: OMG, you can't even see the rear half that I spent so much time on. Despite the chance of ruining the mini, I carefully drilled a magnet hole through the bottom of the base so she can be removed. I threw in a gaming base as well for picture taking purposes, and just in case Tricksay ever wants to use her in a game. I was joking with my friends at paint day that "no, those are her adventuring clothes; convenient necklace, weird skirt-thong and all."
I ended up with a bunch of extra crates from one of my Hirst Arts molds, and decided to experiment with wood the other night. So here you go!
In case anyone's curious about the recipe, here's what I did. Everything but the wash is done with dollar-store craft paints, that don't have great coverage, so this might not be the best plan to try to recreate with good paints (at least without testing it out first)...
Basecoat with Burnt Umber Heavy drybrush with Bright Orange Light drybrush with Cashmere Tan Very light drybrush with Antique White (a sort of yellow-tinted off-white colour) Wash with Citadel's Agrax Earthshade The chest's metal bits were done with Blackened Steel, highlights picked out with Honed Steel, and then a few shadows established with Reaper Pure Black.
