WIP 77557 KS3 Mystic Circle


Recommended Posts

I'm relatively new to painting and had to put it on the back burner for a while. My KS3 shipment just came in and I figured the Mystic Circle would be the perfect "mini" to jump back in with.  

I was out of crazy glue and could not assemble it. If your in this situation, sharpies fit inside the stone pillars perfectly.   

I used craft store black paint to base coat the stone, and inadvertently made a half wash. I'm not happy with how it pooled in some areas, but I'm going to move on an use it as a learning experience.  

Im planning on using a dremel to carve in runes on the stone. Has anyone used anything else to carve into reaper bone material?

Any tips or C&C would be appreciated.

 I dremeled a rune in each column. There is 7 columns if you count the complete columns as one each so I found "runes for the seven deadly sins." 

Move put down a blue wash down followed by three grays layers of dry brushing, an off white dry brushing, and a brown wash. I think it's looking pretty good so far.  

Im planning on putting/painting moss on the stones, painting the runes the colors representing the seven deadly sins and giving them a glow effect. I would love to put some ivy on the columns but I cannot find any locally or on Amazon. 

Im leaning on an autumn-ish basing, but I'm not sure. Can you have green moss during the autumn? 

The side by side shot of the columns is before and after the brown wash.

Your runes came out great. The stones are looking ominously mystical. 

I've never bought any ivy for basing but I have some Army Painter Battlefields Lichen Summer Undergrowth (it's on Amazon, ebay, Miniature Market, etc...). Would something like that work? It doesn't have leaves like ivy but you may be able to add a bit of leaf scatter.

I painted up the runes and attempted to make them appear to glow. I think the blue and purple came out rather well. The yellow and pink not so much at all. For some reason when painting some of the runes, the blue wash that I painted several layers ago was drawn to the top.  

I put down a layer of Gale Force 9 autumn flock, hoping it looks like leaf clutter and I mixed green paint with some dried tea leaves. That's drying now and will hopefully work well for moss. After the moss is on, I think the mystic Circle will be finished.
