Stone and Ivy

Just like the ice flow base from the Frost Paladin, I thought it might be fun to take some images of the base without the figure.

I'm definitely glad that I did!  It's neat to see some of the different color tones I put into the stone texture to age it.

The foliage from Hangar 18 was a very important part of this base, as it gave it an additional texture, as well as some brighter color contrast.  It was also meant to reflect some of those greens that I painted into the stone colors.

These views show some of the warmer colors that I painted around the edges of the stones.  It was meant to age them, as well as provide a 'bridge' to the warmer greens of the foliage.

That is, it is supposed to lead your eyes into the foliage, as opposed to the jarring effect of having your eyes suddenly see an unrelated color sitting there!


  1. Exquisite design. Very realistic, and a great atmosphere as well. Figure Temple Raider girl is great too, but the base is simply beautifully painted.
