LXII. Tall

I've been neglecting my pagan undead faction (the last time they got an update was in February), so I've decided to make it up to them- by building a towering hobby horse.


The creature is still work-in-progress; the main parts are here, but I would like to add some more detail to it. It is placed on a 40mm base and stands about 70mm tall. The hobby horse is made of differet types of wire, a piece of old rag soaked in watered down PVA glue (it hardened and has a wonderful texture for light drybrushing), and a Vampire Counts Black Knight's horse head. It looks nice and sinister already.  :)

The Troglodytes received another trio of dirty little Workers. There are now ten Workers, two Shamans and one Brute. There is only the Mother missing now for them to be complete and ready for the campaign.

Well, that's it for now. This semester drawing to its end means I'm busier with college stuff than usual. As a result there could be a dearth of updates this coming month. So much to do, so little time...

  7. That hobby horse is creepy as hell, and it's not even painted yet.

  8. Your WIP shots of that 'horse' showed promise, and the Troggy's look amazing as a group.
