    Just finished this 40m/m from WarHammer. Incredible details carved in and took longer than I thought. All in acrylics to keep working with what was learnt at the PF workshop.

    The base was from Steve from Oklahoma that I picked up while he was in Chicago at MMSI. Just seemed to cry out for the little guy.
    Closed up the base and added the pond and slight creek to feed it from higher up the base.
