I spent a good amount of time this morning adding some highlights to a set of the Sea Guard. Highlighting and blending are two skills in painting which I am still pretty rough with. I have been reading other people’s blogs on the subject (check out this one!) which has helped me learn some other techniques. I feel that I will have the particulars of accomplishing this with the high elves once I am about half way through this unit!
In addition to getting some work in on the high elves, I was also able to make some prototypes for some terrain pieces which have been in my head for a while. I have an idea for a themed desert table which will be primarily designed for Fantasy, and Sci Fi games. The rough idea is that some strange eldrich monoliths were discovered in the desert, and the archeological team which was studying the odd monolithic structures which had emerged from the sands has disappeared, leaving their camp, scaffolding, and tools behind… Here is a shot of a prototype of the monolith design.
When I actually create some of these for the table, I will probably hit the surface of them with a finer sand paper, and give them more broken, damaged areas. I love doing terrain!
