Dwarf tomb

Monuments and reliefs are easy to make with spare miniatures or their parts

I think the pictures explain the idea how to make this thing:

1. Build the basic shape of the tomb from a stiff card stock

2. Glue some bits, especially spare shields, to its sides

3. Paint the whole thing (black undercoat then grey drybrush)

4. The epitaph was typed on a computer and then printed and varnished

When you are building your tabletop castle you may get carried away with all the alcoves, plasterwork, gargoyles and other medieval gubbinz. Real castles were often way much simpler than that.

Shading and highlighting white is quite straightforward with the caveat that there are murderous pitfalls along the way

Horses show a large variety of coat colours, much like human hair. Note however that in contrast to hominids they can have contrasting points of different colour: mane, tail and lower legs ("socks")
