Air Power!

Here we have a little comparison between some big birds.  One is the resin Gwaihir from GW, and the other is the eagle from CMON.

The CMON Gwaihir on the left was done years ago for my LOTR elf army... hence the expired Easterling at his feet.

The other eagle you will recognize from the first bark and branch post from a few months ago.  Both bases are 60mm.

I had a lot of fun with that base, and two more eagles are on the way!

The GW eagles will serve as 'regular' eagles, while the CMON bird will continue its role as Gwaihir.

Both of the new GW birds are flying like the one on the left, although the poses are slightly different.  I look forward to making more flying style bases with bark and branches!

It's hilarious how the tree bark looks so much like the rock base that came with the CMON eagle. :-)

Lots of additional bark will be used on the new bases.  I will be sure to take pictures for you!

I will also be adding the dried foliage.  The biggest challenge for each one will probably be finding that delicate center of gravity, as it was for the first GW figure that I based.

Stay tuned!!


  1. +1000, I can't like these enough. They look fantastic, all the colours, bases and mini's are just right.
    I think these are some of your best work I've seen so far.

    1. I'm glad you liked these! I hope you enjoy the next two as well! :-)

    2. Thanks! I will be working on the bases this week! :-)
