What Lurks Beneath: Part 4

Good Wednesday everyone!

Wow, I'm actually struggling to believe we're already halfway through the week! It's insane!

Just a short post today as yesterday I did 2 semi sizeable ones.

So the past few days I've been working more on my terrain entry.

A reminder, over the weekend I basecoated it so we had:

Well on Monday I highlighted the model, this was done using an emulsion paint that I use to highlight all my 'wasteland' terrain, mainly because I use a lot of it and it's cheaper than acrylic paint.

As you can see already the details are starting to come out. All that's left is to do the well itself, the tentacles and the bones.

So last night I painted the well, this was done using the same technique I use to paint the cobblestone bases of my Neverborn, the tentacles were then painted pink and given a purple wash, while the bones were painted white with a brown wash:

This will have more work on it tonight highlighting the tentacles and bones on the floor, and then -in theory- this will be done and ready for submission.

Already however I think it's clear to see what the finished piece will look like. Will it win the Malifools terrain contest? I doubt it, there is some strong competition from some very talented people, but let's just wait and see when it's finished eh?

Anyway, that's it from me today, so stay safe and I'll see you breachside!

  1. Same, I felt it was important that whatever I made it was something that I would be happy to use in games. So while it isn't very 'master specific' it's still fun.

    The one thing I wanted to avoid was making something designed to win the contest, but afterwards would never see use on the table.
