October’s Heroes Drop Unboxed

October's Heroes Drop was our last ever Heroes Box! After running the subscription for 12 months, we decide to mix things up a bit and transformed our Heroes Box into the Villains Box. This was available from November 2019.

The Heroes Box couldn't have ended with a more impressive diorama. For the hero we chose Black Lamp from Carnivale the Game by TT Combat, a stoic model holding out a lamp into the darkness, protecting the Streets of Venice. This gave us the opportunity to focus on an OSL effect for our Painting Guide tutorial. To complete this effect we picked a beautiful trio of oranges and yellow from The Army Painter. This technique could be transferable to any other model.

To display the Black lamp miniature, we worked with the talented team at Warbases to commission some exclusive MDF scenery of a Venetian Canal. The canal was designed to mimic Venice and hold a resin water effect. The Murky Green Well Water from Serious Play provided the effect, and the final piece of the diorama was a Gondola miniature also from Carnivale. After all, no diorama of Venice would be complete with out a famous gondola! Subscribers could sit the gondola in their canal terrain, designed to fit it perfectly, and then submerge the boat with the resin water effect. Check out some of the finished diorama below from our subscribers!

If you'd like to get your hands on the Painting OSL Effects tutorial, we now have a Patreon channel that shares our Painting Guides for only $4 per month.

The Heroes Drop has now become the Villains Drop, which you can learn more about here.
