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

See the pictures as separate pages: Tomb of a dwarf lord * Unpainted dwarven tomb * Fantasy cemetery

The trick is to think backward. Normally you paint shadows in the recesses of a model and then highlights on the edges emphasising how the external light plays on the shape. Fire has a light of its own and so the roles are reversed and the deeper you go, the lighter it will be. »

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 »

The Death Guard models released in 2017 are gorgeous, whether the ones from the starter boxes or even the "easy to assemble" ones. So are the special edition models any more special? »
