Telling you that would be against my.... Creed.
Oooooooohhhh. Sick pun.
So, what with GW releasing the Idoneth Deepkin, I decided to try my hand at making some "underwater - yet still on dry land" scatter terrain for them.
Used broken bits of Plaster of Paris this time and the paint is only washed and drybrushes - no priming whatsoever.
The plants are from an Aquarium and the critters are cheap plastic toys that aren't glued down so can easily be moved / removed.
More Jungle scenery coming SOON - my Armies on Display board will be a much bigger and new version of my waterfall you have seen already
C&Cs welcome and appreciated.
Will the plaster not crack and chip over time?
Those look great. Very colourful! How big are they?
They look roughly 60mm to me
This lobster is cool!
They are all on CDs.
Plaster might chip and crack? Maybe, one of the reasons I was trying it out to see how to use it - seems to be ok so far
+1 for the lobster. Hmm... surf and turf, the new theme for Idoneth....?
FLGS is running an Armies on parade competition, so I had to enter!
Started like this...
Ended up like this!
Secret Mine round the back
I have a lot more pics which I can put up if people want - mainly of the construction.
C&Cs welcome as always
Really great what you did. More pictures, sure
Man, this guy's got some serious talent!
Excellent stuff, I have a temple on the go that I should really finish.
Can you put up your wip pics please
I really like the idea, but find that unpainted aquarium/plant bits look completely out of place next to miniatures until they're painted...
Amazing work, I like the secret mine too!
I think they look fine...about 95% right. Oh I live in a tropical country so I see this stuff everyday
It's not about accuracy to real life plants, it's about accuracy at scale. If you like them, that's all good.
Fair enough, that is a good point. Finding accurate-scale grass for 28-ish-mm is hard in a hobby store... but a lot cheaper
