I am pleased to report I have now completed two sets.
Gandalf once again sticking his nose in to places where he probably shouldn't.
The above all show the first set. As you can see, they've been painted relatively simply and given some simple weathering around ground level. I was relatively happy with them but felt they lacked a certain something. The answer actually came to me while I was driving to work and looking at the leaves littering the ground; there's nothing quite so melancholy as autumn leaves dancing in deserted places.
It also gave me a chance to try out a new toy:
This is one of those ideas that is so simple you curse yourself for not thinking of it first. It's just a device that you use to punch out 28mm scale leaves. How brilliant is that? If you want one, you can get them here.
So I picked up some leaves while I was on break duty and had at it.
I think you'll agree they finish things off nicely.
Pop a few miniatures on and it really all comes to life.
