January’s Heroines Drop Unboxed
January's Heroines Box revolved around the gigantic Fungal Queen from Reaper Miniatures. To create her environment we included a wealth of forest basing materials to produce a diorama worthy of our queen.
As the basis of the landscape, we designed a scatter that looks like the floor of an English Woodland. To accompany this, we worked with Shadow's Edge Miniatures to feature their stunning Flower Tufts, and Alien Lab Miniatures to include their pack of detailed resin logs.
Because the Fungal Queen is so tall, we wanted the forest around her to be tall as well and decided to use natural Seafoam Trees from Serious Play to create a frame/ backdrop for the model. To do this, we provided some basing cork, which could be sculpted into a hill to insert the seafoam trees into, standing the heroine in front of them so they fan out behind her.
Last but not least, our heroine is clearly magical and to really show that off we included a Fluorescent Violet paint from Green Stuff World, which could be used with two of the blue paints from his brand new range of Acrylics. The tutorial in the Heroines Box focused on how to paint the fungal crown using these paints.
Our Patreon Channel now features January's Painting Guide to download, plus over 27+ others for just $4! Check it out here.
