The Gate is Closed
I've gone waaaaay back into miniatures. Blame Steve. Lately I've been painting my second DBA army (Ayyubid Egyptians, because King Richard needs his Saladin) and rebasing my Warmaster figs for Hordes of the Things. So for my birthday last weekend, my wife put together a big tub of supplies for Crafting Day, in order to make HOTT-appropriate strongholds and terrain pieces.
Crafting Day has spilled into Crafting Weeks, but the first piece is finally done -- the Dwarf Gate shown here, guarded by two units of Blades. It's 7 inches long (those are 10mm = 6ft figs). The wall and gate are balsa wood, the faces are sculpted from modeling clay, and the rocks are painted plaster over wireframe. It looks darker and more ancient in person.
Anyway, more to come (working on an Undead crypt entrance now), but that gate is crying to be attacked!
