Dwarf tomb

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

Tomb of a dwarf lord

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

Black is one of the challenging colours as how you add darker shades to something that is technically as dark as things go? Fortunately real world objects are not perfect quantum black bodies and are actually grey so the trick is to find a shade of grey that will make our brains think its black. For me it's Vallejo 306 Dark Rubber from the Panzer Aces line. »

Most of the miniatures, be it plastic, resin or metal, come with flat gun points with no hole. You can easily fix that with the right tools. And the Citadel Hobby Drill is not enough. »
