Elm trees tend to have worms eating away at the wood below the bark. And these pieces are no exception. When finished the edge of the elm looks like its surrounded in runes.
Scott’s use of the elm as a stand for the overall display was well thought out. It is placed to balance against the weight of the piece and still reveal the impressive tree rings of the elm. Well done, Scott.
Hearth Stone carries its own line of miniatures. Check them out for use on our bases. There are quite the interesting miniatures available.
A while ago I mailed a parcel to Siberia … yeah, the one in Russia. It included one of my favorite rounds, the Black Locust. This nice young woman told me she was going to use it for a base for her miniatures. I thought, cool, my first International order, and it’s going to Russia.
Then she sent me a link to her blog, Mini Baby Steps. She makes 1:200 sized doll houses.
Cute, LED lit, tiny doll houses that fit on 4″ x 6″ pieces of wood or similar bases. I was stoked to see what she would do with the 1″, 2″ and 3″ bases I shipped.
Like many people who sell their art, she had a few projects in front of using her WoldStand pieces. Plus the parcel had to get thru the mail, customs, and such to get to her.
Finally, after 8 months or so, I present to you a 1:300th scale house on a black locust base by Дарья Прус (Daria Prus) of Siberia, Russia. IT IS AWESOME! Great work!
James Wappel, a distinguished painter and miniature painting tutorial author, has accepted our products to use with his miniatures. Help him figure out what his project will be by swinging over to his blog and suggesting ideas in his comments. I for one am stoked to see where he goes with them and what he accomplishes.
My buddy Ub3r N3rd over at Reaper Miniatures forum has taken two of Red Box Games miniatures and created that moment in a combat where the two champions find each other on the battlefield and begin the dance while everyone else gets the hell out of the way.
He applied some Resin Sand and muddied up the base for his battlefield.
