Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

Here Thar be Treasure - Part 3

This is the last installment of the diorama base. I have blended in all the hand carved elements last night and touched up the paint and added some ground cover. I'm very happy with this, wish I could enter it without miniatures! The minis are almost ready to go on it and I'm looking forward to wrapping this one up. Although its perfectly within the rules to post pictures of it prior to the competition, I just don't do that. ReaperCon is next week so if you aren't there in person to see it I'll get the pictures posted when I get back.

The vines may need to be trimmed back a bit at this point. I'll make that decision when I'm ready to place the miniatures. Oh and I think the title is going to be Hasty Exit (despite the title of the post).

  1. This is stunning on its own Kris and I'm looking forward to seeing it with the minis. Get some painting done, but get some rest too.

    Bring home that Sophie!!

    1. At the very least the antagonists of the piece will be finished and in place tonight. They are about half way done at this point. We will see how things go with the heroine.

    1. The awards ceremony is Saturday night, depending on how things go I might get pictures posted on Sunday. We will see how wiped out I am at that point.

  3. Very good Kris; the roots that you did for the tree really look the part, perfect for tripping up some unsuspecting cutthroat!

    1. We just don't know who the cutthroats are in this one! Everybody is kind of a bad guy in this one!
