Four pinnacles pass: handmade terrain
« on: December 13, 2019, 01:30:31 PM »
Hi guys,
while my dungeon project is a bit standing, I found an unexpected inspiration during some works of cleaning and throwing away useless things from my home.

With a piece of old Styrofoam packaging similar to this in photo, I made a mountain pass... You can see it from many angles with some of my latest painted minis. A group of dark elves trying to go across the pass. But some angry dwarves don't agree with them...

That would be a great landmark on the approach to your dungeons!

Awesome work, as always, Brownie.

Oh, can we get some closeups of the dark elves? Just curious how you did the skin tones.

Thank you, as always, Andrew ;)
When I'll come home this evening I'll post them.... They came out very dark, maybe too much.... I'm not totally satisfied with the skin tone, but you will see.

Here we are...
A bit shiny with artificial light, would be better with natural one ( I use Vallejo satin varnish)

Nice terrain and nice elf models - they're 15mm, right?

Damn, with tiny eyes and all! Killer work, Brownie. I think the skin tone is about what I always imagine. Soot colored with ash highlights.

Well, if you are going to do eyes, better squinting than bug eyed.  ;)
