September’s Monster Box
September's Monster Box was an impressive one, featuring a ferocious and absolutely massive miniature from Artel W Miniatures in Russia! Artel W produce collectable resin miniatures in high detail resin and packaged in stunning boxes with a wax seal and a collectable card. The model we chose for our Monsters Box was the Iron Boss, a massive orc miniature worth over $40 and made from 17 different pieces!
We wanted to do something a little different with September's Monsters Box and so we focused on how to build a diorama to display the
Iron Boss, instead of including a standard painting tutorial. The Monsters Painting Guide took subscribers through how to design an Orc battlefield using the contents of the box.
A large wooden base from Warbases was included as the platform, with a custom basing scatter from our new Baseworks line. Baseworks is a custom range of basing materials designed in collaboration with Serious Play to support our subscription boxes. For the Iron Boss, we created a Battlezone Scatter perfect for our Orc battlefield. Inside the box, we also featured an Armour Tread Plate from Kromlech, and an exclusive large Orc Bomb from Serious Play.
Using these materials, subscribers could create a display fit for the mighty Iron Boss! We definitely recommend checking out Artel W
Miniatures as they have a range of stunning models available.

The Iron Boss by Artel W Miniatures
These diroamas were completed by our subscribers using the materials in September's Monsters Box, and following the Painting Guide.
We also love the additional smoke and fence Paul added to give more detail to the scene, and Joseph's colour scheme for the Iron Boss is outstanding. Fantastic!
