This one is going to be our last one, I'm afraid, or at least for a while, I am starting to make a new diorama for armies on parade at the moment, but it is at very early stages. I have not included the part about the tower yet, and stuff like that because I did not take any good pictures for it. I may do another little outro as my next piece with the completed thing, but anyway let's get on with making the water and the lava.
Then I started to do my water feature which was a complete
Another short one I'm afraid, and I've only got a few left to go so I thought I would keep it alive by not merging this one into another one.

Then a few days later someone told me about using sand on your models to sort of look like grass, I wasn't interested at first since I already new what the bases of my models look like. Then I thought that that would be good in my trench, but what would ma

I liked the idea that there would be a tree (stick) hanging over the lava pool. I was even at one point thinking about
This entry is of how I started to carve the area of my scenic board set in the realm of death.
I started with these two pieces of equipment that I got on Amazon, below, you can see my electric foam cutter and my bottle of “ Vallejo Water Texture”
Here is the scalpel that I used for more rough cuts
I started with this piece of insulation foam. Then I did my first carving, as shown here.
Here is the rough start of the positioning of my pieces.
