Hammershield,

I recognize the frothers mini, but where are the other from?

What are you doing the bases from?

Both entries are absolutely amazing by the way!

Thanks for thinking me in par with the very talented McBrice.

@ drferling: The maw-monster and the poltergeists emergin arround the dark obelisk are both RAFM, the former from the Chtulu range. The two apparitions with dangling entrails are both Reaper. The ghost in gimp-hood and straight jacket is, as you say, Frothers.

I rebase almost all my miniatures on thin 25mm washers. In this case the washers are tiled with tile pattern evergreen styrene sheet. The monster and obelisk are, as you probably can tell, fiddled with a extra to get that emerging-through-the-floor look.

Hammershield, in my opinion this is one of the best entries of the competition so far!
Innovative use of colour, very original basing and a nice, unusual combination of miniatures.

Hats off to this one.

The Saxons are fantastic, I have had doubts about the new GB figures but had  a double take as I didnt recongnise them.

Love the Asylum theme and the spectres too

a very tough choice

The Arthurians are from the old Foundry range, not Gripping Beast.

Not yet.

I have ordered or bought most of the material (HirsArt molds, Evergreen styrene, sheet lead and brass profiles, bars and rods) to make a late 1920's setting in a old building which has seen several renovations and uses over many centuries (I feel this is typical for many monumental buldings in Scotland and England) before ending up as an asylum.

I've was very impressed by vikotniks Musketeer table and I would like to make a "set piece" like that, but maybe a little larger. The problem is that I have a fair idea what it should look like but I do not have a rule set ready for how the miniatures should move about. Whith all ideas I have for miniatures and terrain I am a little worried that a set piece will become to cramped or otherwise implayable.

This is very true - I really love old building that you can almost see the history in the walls: different types of construction materials, bricked-up windows and doors, repairs and alterations.

What about a "Space Hulk" style tile system? Then you could have maze-like corridors and rooms  that could be re-arranged for each game.
