Here's the Champ

This is a very interesting version of the Tharn cavalry, with a dramatic pose for both wolf and rider.

I'm still seeking the description of what make Privateer Press figures distinctive from other lines.

It doesn't matter which faction you're talking about... they always seem to have a unique appearance.

I know the armor is treated a little differently, but it might have something to do with the more 'heavy' sculpting.

There are not many 'dainty' sculpts in the Privateer Press line, which is probably the one aspect that comes to mind. :-)

The Standing Stone

Continuing with the early stages of some winter theme terrain pieces, we have a quick standing stone.

The stone itself was made using sculpey.

It's sitting on top of some cork to make it easier to attach.

A few broken piece are scattered around the DVD protector...

Upon which a second layer will be added.  Just as I do with the tree bark, I used some Oxide Paste to serve as mortar with the regular glue.

Second layer added, and the Oxide Paste spread into some of the gaps.

The standing stone is also fortified with Oxide Paste, and buttressed a little bit with the second layer of the cork.

All of the broken bits of leftover cork make fantastic smaller stones!!

The various layers of gravel and ballast are added in the same manner as the earlier post of the tree stand.

I can't wait to see how this will look once it's painted, and the snow effects added!!! Stay tuned.
