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. »
