    I also had my two gaming mats come in! I truly love these mats. So easy to roll up and store away, or leave 'em out and simply stack on top of one another!

    Frontline Gaming! A Kraken Mat? Could you post a pic (or link it if you already have one?) I'm very curious!

    Time has been a difficult thing for me to come by this month, but I did manage to find a few moments to crank out this Wood Elf BSB.

    I can't wait to get my Death and Seraphon done then start relaxing and trying to improve on things like freehand.

    Where do you go to for your inspiration most of the time? I find that comics are great for me.

    So, some major progress this weekend...I finished my Thundertusk!!!

    I'll show some of the WIP pics first, then the final model.

    I started off priming the beast with Rhinox Brown. When on to painting it from there.

    After the beastie was mostly painted, I started working on the base. This was the part that took so long. I cut out the portion that I wanted the water to be in and used Green Stuff to seal off any open areas beneath the model and the Bass Wood base I cut out to fit the bottom. I then painted in blue and applied the 2-part epoxy with a little hand sticking out (like some unfortunate fell in the ice. In retrospect, I should have let it stick out even more, because it doesn't show very well at the height it currently is. Oh, well. I'll get it right next time!) I used Crackle Paint for the "ice" on the water, then drybrushed it using Ulthuan Gray. After that, it was painting it up and adding additional pieces.

    Nice job, I like how you added the spot colours to draw the eye, maybe put up how you did the base as I'm sure some will want to nick the idea.

    Check out the WIP post. That has most of it. Images at least. I can answer any specific questions anyone might have.
