I have been kicking around an idea of combining #50188 Sleeping Beauty and #03600 Praying Paladin in a mini diorama.. I have even gotten so far as to open their blisters and prime the paladin..

Then, tonight, I had an Idea!  See, last year when my kids and I were playing Frostgrave, I backed a kickstarter for some resin scenery .  As per usual, however, by the time the scenery arrived, they had lost interest in Frostgrave.

Combined with some iffy casts, I had put the box off to the side under my desk and forgotten about it..  until tonight, that is..

 

What we now see here was billed as a watchtower hill, but looks like a potential mausoleum..

Add a saddled horse, maybe a couple of other party members, and "Bob's your uncle!"

 

I'm going to need to invest in some green stuff to clean up the cast for the 'table' top where the pillars connect as they're way off at the moment..

Alternatively, I have a 'ruined palace' that might work as well..

The second won't need as much cleanup or modification to work, also leaving the watchtower for a dragon or something to perch on at some point as well.. 

 

decisions, decisions..

In the frosty north you have ... frost , and icicles to help hide gaps ... in the jungles ivy and such ... moss in forest ... lots of options ... the watch mausoleum temple seems more dynamic ,  and more work.

Well that's it then. No turning back now.

:ik_oops:

 

I find your ideas for the terrain and minis interesting and will curiously follow your progress.

 

Good luck!

Amazing set up!

 

Who is the manufacturer of that terrain?

Norba Miniatures - and it looks like they've finally added the kickstarter scenery to their website as well.

Horses acquired!  In this case, from Warlord Games.

Am thinking that I might need another adventurer or two for companions.. off to ponder the Reaper catalog for more ideas..

Introducing the rest of our intrepid band of adventurers...

Dicarus Darksword, Halfling    #03439
Nadia of the Blade #03409

Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard    #03491

 

Maybe it's cheating that all 3 were done last year, but hey.. money's not growing on trees this year and they fit the 'non-threatening pose' bill.

Either Dicarus has to ride behind the wizard or I'm going to need a pony of some sort eventually too.. or a dog mount!

 

And now, I suppose I need to actually paint something ..

Found a  horse for my halfling! They were supposed to be 28mm armored horses, but they're more in the 15-20mm range, I think..

      Finally finished with my first 'original' diorama.  I backed a terrain kickstarter last year when my kids were playing Frostgrave with me and by the time it all arrived, their attention spans had wandered - and so, the terrain pieces went back into the box they came with and were (mostly) forgotten..
       
      Meet Sir Felshire, paladin of Sune.  One evening, as he was on 3rd watch, he was presented with a vision of a beautiful maiden, locked in enchanted sleep deep within a forest. Waking his companions, he excitedly told them of his vision.  Dobbin, the halfling dismissed the tale, stating that there are so many stories of maidens imprisoned by evil that he has made entire fortunes off them ( err.. could have, that is).. Sir Felshire wondered, not for the  first time, at the slip of language that hinted that his companion might not be as honest as he presented himself to be.  The other two members of the group, Erryn and Anirion, were more easily swayed by his drive to rescue this maiden.
       
      After many months of searching, here we have the brave band at the pinnacle of their quest..

       
      Our fearless band's mounts!

       
      Isn't she cold?

       
      Dobbin, thrilled as usual, keeping an eye out while the others are occupied..

       
      Anirion, the androgynous wizard..

       
      Erryn and Sir Felshire..

       
      Now how does one awaken a princess in enchanted sleep? Perhaps our merry band of adventurers is not done yet!  Dobbin will be thrilled...
       
       
      I had a lot of fun painting these folks, even if I did wimp out and skip on the original idea of attempting translucent sheets..  The WIP is here

      This is the piece I did for @Leopardpixie. This was a labor of love as I did the water effect in that magnitude for the first time.
       
      Hope you enjoy it. 
       
      C&C welcome.

      Ok , time to put that things in the show off section.
      Did not really know what to do with naming so I though that would be funny name haha, now up to you to decide which is what :D
       
      here last pic, did not find something suitable enough to add some exterior background so I just keep it simple here.
       
       
       
       



       
      Wip thread here :
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81615-reaper-diorama-77254775507739977454/
       
      Big thanks for the advice and feedback during the wip , special thanks to @Heisler , his advice helped me narrow down the scene to a state I could manage to move forward and progress on this.
      Each project is a learning experience :D ..one thing I won't do again is actually to start fight on 2 fronts, doing the scene while also doing the figure paint is a bit time consuming and make harder to focus.
       
      Since it's a reaper Diorama , I will add it to the yearly contest as well :D..
