July’s Monsters Box
July's Monsters Box took us back in time to an alternative version of Venice with the Black Spectre miniature from Carnivale! This terrifying phantom has possessed a masked citizen and is now terrorising the floating city.
To really bring the scene to life, we went all out on an exclusive MDF Clock Tower terrain piece designed by Warbases. This incredible building is three stories high with a traditional clock face and a balcony on top. It's where we imagined our Spectre miniature could stand, overlooking the city he now controls.
To develop the diorama further, we included a variety of basing items in July's Monsters Box. A resin well by TTCombat to sit on the ground floor as a centre point, since Venice is well known for its well systems. A set of resin Gargoyles by MiniMonsters to adorn the top of the tower for some added flare! And an exclusive pack of Creeping Vine tufts from our own Baseworks range that can wind along the building to give it a feeling of age in the landscape.
Finally, we also included a paint from INSTAR's Spectrum range - a purple colourshift to use when painting the Black Spectre. His colour scheme is built on purples and blacks and so this paint was a fun piece to complement the rest of the diorama contents in the box. Our tutorial for this box focused on how to paint the Clock Tower using a realistic marble effect.
