The Shade of Christmas Past: Conversions

The previous spooky tower brought out some ghouls from the wood work. It is a couple weeks past halloween but this guy still wanted to go trick or treating.

The base for this model was 3.5 models technically, a bit of a mash up. It was a lot of fun sculpting this model and it was a great way to get some new looks on a model.
 This 40mm conversion snagged a Best Conversion award at Bilbo's Birthday Bash and helped complete a big diorama in the previous post. The castle diorama was awarded a best overall in appearance and theme in a tough painted field.
Keep the requests coming and thanks again for all the support.

New Terrain Sample

Finished up a terrain display board piece that will be going into the terrain samples. Really happy with the final look and the stained wall finish.

 The display piece measures 2x2 feet and close to 18 inches high.

It was a large undertaking dealing with many different effects of a diorama. Water effects, lighting, staining, and some new and exciting flocking materials all went into this.
 Ah yes, and it lights up. Got my hands dirty with the Powered Play LED lighting kits and really pulled off some cool scenes. They have all colors imaginable and the snap circuit boards making lighting projects super easy.
