With a piece like that, you can also use high gloss polyeurethane, and can add a small amount of fine flock to either it or resin to give the look of algae.

So, the 3D printed vignette from Reconquer Designs finally arrived! A wounded and/or unconscious warrior is pulled to safety by his battle-brother. I've added some fur pelts to make the warriors stand out as Black Order sergeants. Whilst this would make a fantastic vignette in its own right, I'm probably going to add it to the war wagon's base to add that bit extra character and dynamism. What do you think?

It looks like it would look great either way. Definitely would be a great addition to the war wagon!

That's superb once again. One thing that struck me though was that if it's being added to the war wagon base, the rescuer looks to be shielding the wounded from a direction you wouldn't expect arrows to be coming from, assuming the crossbowmen are firing at the enemy (unless they've been outflanked).

A great scene.  Maybe that guy owes him money  :)

I think the figures are more versatile on a single base and wouldn't add them to the waggon. In that way they are usable in many more scenarios I think.

IMO adding that little vignette to the wagon base makes it! That's why the horses are still out front and not hiding behind the wagon - it's just come to a stop to do a quick battlefield evac  :-*

Thanks all!

One thing that struck me though was that if it's being added to the war wagon base, the rescuer looks to be shielding the wounded from a direction you wouldn't expect arrows to be coming from, assuming the crossbowmen are firing at the enemy (unless they've been outflanked).

The idea was that the wagon has driven right into the thick of the fighting and arrows are indeed coming from all directions. I think I need to add some arrows embedded in the wagon from the other side in order to sell this, though. :)

That was the hope! Cheers :)

Itís a beautiful piece of terrain! Lots of interesting details too. Things are looking a bit sticky for Hans and Franz in the first picture, though!

Not spent much time on the forum for awhile, but was like always a joy to come here and catch up on your work. The swamp looks suitably damp and horrible, and I salute you the effort of rebasing the whole army. Not a choice easily made.

Also great to see you getting games in, the real joy comes when you get to use your labour for the other fun parts after all. Looking forward to seeing more always.

Seconding a poster above, nice extra little details like sunken skeleton.

Cheers mate! Yeah, I figure it'll be the site of a lot of gaming mishaps and gnashing of teeth :)

Shrek would be proud.

Always appreciate the kind words from yourself mate - hope you are enjoying the hobby and that you get some gaming time soon. I've always found the painting/modelling side to be reward enough in its own right, but it is pleasing to get the models out on a table and roll some dice, too. :)

And yes, rebasing a whole army was a bit nuts.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun to make.

With the heatwave affecting the UK currently, there aren't a lot of options for things to do during the day, and I'm finding that even the hobby is a little tricky - GW paint pots dry up and Green Stuff cures solid in about 90 minutes. I burned through a lot of Green Stuff on this project - Victrix's Norman Cavalry set, which I'm repurposing to act as Mounted Sergeants for the Black Order. I used Green Stuff World's texture plates to help with the chain barding and fur pelts. Lots of fun!
