Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

POST 400! Seems nice to celebrate with a finished project.

Quite some time ago I bought the Warcry box set and it's been a project that's been ticking over in the background. I finally got the scenery and the first warband finished so it seemed like a good time to put it on the blog.

The scenery is lovely. I chose to go with a jade look which I achieved with an airbrush for the two base coats - brown at the bottom and then green at the top - and then successive dry drybrushes of green with more and more ivory mixed in. The metal was just washed with black and then rusted. I added some moss to help with the ruined feel.

I also painted the Iron Golems. Given that their heads in mind of diving helmets, a sea-based palette seemed in order. 


We had our first game and, surprising no one, my eldest aged 7 managed to pummel my arcanites into the ground. 

Breaking news - it's a very good game.
