"There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is Curiosity.

There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is Vanity.

There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is Love.

― St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Not a huge post, just some workshop pics after taking a break from painting some HH Dark Angels.

To complete the "Ashfeld Look" I've got some movement tray fillers of lava bubbling up from the ground, and the start of my ruined chapel terrain piece.

Really liked the castle and keen to see what you make with this new build. Enjoying the creative spirit. Keep 'em coming...

All of the foam portions are built and painted the black undercoat. In the interest of expanding my terrain use across systems the front and back halves are going to be on 2 separate bases. With a larger and smaller base the structure as a whole should work for Kings of War, Saga, and maybe even Warcry, which are the three games I'm playing at the moment. I did have a funny moment wherein I built and undercoated everything, and then realized I completely forgot to build the ambulatory. Awkward. The only other portions I may do are putting the back half on a platform and building steps upward into said ambulatory, but I'm not certain to go this route yet.



Edit: LAVA

There are some final 3D-printed touched like statues and candles to come but I feel like it's as done as I can make it, which means it's pictures time. Included are some pictures of the inspiration: a little set-aside chapel portion of a map in For Honor (because the setting is just the coolest part of the game and a source of endless inspiration for me). I tried to map sure that the moss would actually match sunlight angles consistently across the whole piece, which I feel adds tremendous interest. As you can see, the last monk left, Brother Maurice, is rather unhappy that the Captain seems to be scouting his quiet place of prayer for use as a command post.

Even a run-down chapel like this one needs a name, so I figure I'll do a poll and see what LAF thinks the name should be!

a: St. Crispin's (yeah Henry V is my fav, how could you tell?)
b: Elmhart Hill
c: St. Concilia's
d: Oldgate Chapel

What a brilliant thread, it's got everything.

I vote for St. Crispen's or St. Concilia's.

Elmhart Hill conjures up green, rolling landscape for me whilst Oldgate Chapel would surely be in a city.
