Ancient obelisk of power

2011-07-18 Khaiell

Finding a nice piece of rock is everything you need to build a spectacular and useful terrain piece, just ready for the Storm of Magic Warhammer supplement

Picture described below
Obelisk of power

1. Acquire a piece of semi-precious stone

As it comes to rock shapes anything goes.

For my project I used "banded flint", a mineral indigenous to Holy Cross Mountains in Poland, used in Neolithic age as a material for ritual knifes and axes. Currently obtainable as a souvenir from the town of Sandomierz and in other places. I bought mine for an equivalent of 1.50 Euro in Szklarska Poręba (Schreiberhau)

2. Prepare an attractive base

3. Using an epoxy glue attach the stone to the base

4. Mask the glue with static grass so that the obelisk looks like it sticks out of the ground, not just lays on the ground

And that's it, you are ready to catch winds of magic

I keep my Space Marine, Eldar or fantasy Empire banners mostly grim and serious. But dwarves have this over-the-top grumpiness combined with a passion for down to earth, beer-soaked humour that just doesn't work taken with a straight face. As the vertically challenged ones wear simple, unfunny outfits the best place to display their attitude are their standards

What would a river do on a battlefield without a bridge to fight over? The design here was made with lumbering battle tanks in mind

During the April 16-17, 2016 Weekend at Games Workshop stores you had a chance to get a special edition remake of the original 1985 Space Marine model. The new version is substantially beefier than the original and the difference is much more striking than the one between the original Mk. 4 marines and their 'Betrayal at Calth' reimagining
