The thumb is about healed enough to do some carving today; painting and sculpting will take another few days, I think.
So, where did we get to? I've actually spent a very Cooper-ish evening watching Twin Peaks, drinking coffee and eating pie and then shining my shoes to a mirror finish. Inbetween episodes, I've managed to more or less finish the basic terrain and play around with some composition:
I quite like the progression of the tombstones to draw the eyes up. The gravestones are from the wonderful Ainsty Castings; full of detail and character. I'm quite looking forward to painting them up.
The view down the hill to see the shambling mass:
The view up the hill to see our noble heroes.
So assuming that I can bend my thumb properly the next step is to slap some filler on the ground and then sculpt the additional bits on the undead horde. Following this, painting ahoy. So expect to see some progress over half term.
*watching Twin Peaks has got me asking two questions.
First, does anyone make a 28mm Not Dale Cooper?
Second, how hard would it be to paint a floor like this?
