That blue is superb and it sits perfectly with the bone.

Thanks man, I'm glad you like it. The idea is to offset the pale-blue / bone combo against some more deep reds and warmer browns.

I made some more progress on the board today. The front 2/3 of the board is now done concept wise, and this is what I'm planning for lay-out:





And a shot of the bases to mount the crypt ghouls on (once I get my hands on a VC batallion, our local GW was out of those).



I also decided to give the horrors a new location on the board to flesh out the front a bit more, while keeping the back more "scenery heavy". Their original position will quite likely be reserved for Vargheist.



I then proceded to cut out the foamboard so the bases of the models will sit nice and flush with the surface of the display board. Similar to the lower tier.



Same deal for the wraith:



And then the base of the terrorgheist, wich will be used to "flesh out" the other flank of the display board.



Untill next time!

More work was done to the base of the terrorgheist. That one is nearly finished now. Maybe a bit more weathering powder and a coat of flat matt varnish to finish... But nothing major. Here's an update:









And to finish, a few different angles to better illustrate how the terrorgheist will look when mounted on the base:











Hope you like it and thanks for the encouraging words so far. It really helps to find the motivation for one of my more daunting projects so far.

And for my 1000th post on these boards, another update on the terrorgheist.

It now has both wings mounted and it's looking suitably big and threatening!









I'm a bit up in the air atm to add a bit (not too much though) of blooddrops to the claws. It would only be the front claws, and only a small amount of gore. The left front claw in particular just feels a little "empty" to me right now...

Worked on the first upright wall section today to seperate the lowest tier on the board from the upper tier.

It does take a while, but I think the result is going to be consistent and thus far, I'm rather happy with the progress.

Here's a few shots of how I made it:









I used the crosses from the "deathknell watch" tower on the wall section. I still have 2 of those for the right wall side. It's nice that all these WHFB kits are so nicely interchangable.

The witchtower is being a pain in the ass to assemble though... I'll try to get some WIP shots of that soon.

This is an incredible plog Elmir. From an inspiration point alone this is worth a couple hundred rep points I don't have. You are one dedicated modeler to cut and shape all those stones, but the end result is going to be so very cool. Keep up the great work, this is too cool!
