    Okay, more progress today on the Balewind platform!

    Not sure what to put on top of those corner pillars. Possibly something like the big feathers on the Skink Starseer palanquin. The underneath's pretty much finished now, just have to detail the anti-gravity-tictac things.

    What about snakes? Or make three with feathers and three with snakes? Maybe spherical gems? Totem faces like the riders drums? Or torches?

    Just brainstorming here...

    Good suggestions! I've been trying to stick to having things in three for smaller details and then sixes for the obvious bits, but you've got me thinking that I could do two spheres (something like the Starseer's staff) opposite each other and then four of something else...

    Had a little bit of a brainwave yesterday, and I've come up with this;
    Balewind 4.PNG
    Little fonts or braziers, about 7.5mm tall so they won't interrupt a wizard's line of sight too much (and definately not a Slann's). You could fill them with still water, you could fill them with something to imitate hot coals, you could make them into little planters, you could model skink sentries sitting in them. Lots of options. I'll be making a separate model of them soon, too, since they'd fit well on a 25mm base to use as game objectives.

    That's a nice variant. Both flames and water would look cool. Maybe even half-half!

    Day off for current projects today to try something new, using spares from my brother's skeleton and zombie sprues to make some filler units and objective markers.

    Actually looking forward to painting and basing these more than most models I actually intend to play with, which feels weird. Probably because it's a really small and simple project; stone, zombie flesh, leather, two wood bits, two metal bits, one bone and then base them.

    I know that effect. Limited scope and crrativity instead having a fixed goal makes for good motivation.

    Awesome work, I do like unit fillers and using extra leftover bits... great that you are doing both at the same time!
