This was for the Fall 2014 Miniature exchange. I decided to go pick Kharsin as my partner (since I'm one of the coordinators and we get to do that). It was a lot of fun to do, I originally had a whole different idea planned with a swordmage facing off against an orc archer on a wet cobblestone street, but early feedback from a few friends who aren't doing the exchange helped me refine my ideas. Inspiration struck and I decided to do more of a scratch build. The Tavern itself is made from balsa wood covered in plasticard, the McFiggin's sign is from the Oathsworn kickstarter, the door and mug are both Hirst Arts pieces (kindly given to me by Bonwirn), and the cobblestones are cut to size from an egg carton. WIP located here. Figures- Bregol Jagstone, Dwarf Ranger - Reaper SKU #03508 Sculpted by Tom Mason Material - Pewter Kavorgh, Black Orc Warlord - Reaper SKU #14560 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Material - Reaper Bones Showdown at McFiggin's Tavern The night - well early morning - was cold, wet, and dark when Bregol Jagstone stepped out from McFiggin's Tavern only to find a behemoth of an Orc outside waiting for him. It was his mortal enemy, Kavorgh the Black, with his monstrous axe raised on high! Much to Bregol's dismay, the large mug he was holding full of the finest of dwarfish brew fell to the ground in his surprise, his red beard bristled and he quickly grabbed for his weapons to take out Kavorgh once and for all... Close-up of Bregol Close-up of Kavorgh (sorry he's blurry and I didn't realize it until after I sent the package to Kharsin) Anyhow, C&C are always welcomed and greatly appreciated, thank you for looking!
Even though I didn't post pictures on the forum ahead of time, I still had WIP pics throughout the build process for the Fall Exchange Project that I entitled "Showdown at McFiggin's Tavern". Show-off thread is located here. This is pretty picture intensive, so I'll break it up a bit with the first couple of posts. Starting out, I'll show you all what I did with the tavern/base, then the orc and then finally the dwarf. I followed this tutorial on how to do the bricks/cobblestones. They were super-glued down in place, I added very fine sand to between the cobblestones and then covered the whole thing with a few coats of reaper brush-on sealer to seal it all down. The door was kindly provided by Bonwirn, this is a Hirst Arts piece, it's actually a wardrobe, but I liked it for the door. The wood around the door is very light weight balsa wood. I measured it out and cut it with a sharp hobby knife. The "McFiggins" sign was from the Oathsworn Dwarves kickstarter, I just got the bases and the scenery pieces. After I had the balsa all glued together and the door placed in, I filled the gap around the door with wood filler. I then cut plasticard to size to make it smooth and put "resin sand" from liquitex over the front to give it the stucco look. The top was another thin piece of plasticard, I took out a bunch of popsicle sticks and cut their ends off to size and super-glued them down in layers. The sides of the roof are also popsicle sticks that I cut to angles. Here's the base with more detail, just used some secret weapon washes mostly 'baby poop' and 'sewer water' in the crevices, and used stone grey and rainy grey RMSP paints with some rainy grey/ghost white mixture for highlights. More details added here.
