Whoa Calamity, that Loonshrine is some of the best looking painted rock I have seen on here. Excellent stuff.

Thank you guys, I really appreciate that.  :)

I’ve made some more progress:




All I have to do now is paint and attach all the extra stuff, the big ‘shrooms, the cage etc.  I’ll finish this thing one day lol.

Also I have a bit of a dilemma.  You guys see the entrance, and the ground around the back?  How it’s a cleaner, brighter shade than the sides?  Does that look right? 

It matches the bases of the troops exactly, but to me it looks weird when compared to the walls.  Which to me means it might need a wash of earth-shade to make it match…but if I do that then it’s possible I might have to go over the entire army with a coat of earthshade on their bases…what do you guys think?  :-\

I think it's fine @calamity! It just looks like a different type of rock exposed along the floor of the Loonshrine.

I don't think anyone would notice or complain about it, looks like a piece of art to me  :).

Great work!

I think it looks great. You being the artist will be the biggest critic, know what i mean?. I think its colors are spot on just from the photos. Wish i had one but i did finally buy me a box of squighoppers.

Oh nice!  I look forward to seeing the finished results!  :)

I’ve also made much more progress:




The shrooms are (mostly) painted and attached.  Now just to touch up what needs touched up and then work on the cage and the skeleton.  Nearly there.  ;D

I still think those eyes are a standout :) but all those white dots on the mushrooms, very nice touch :)

It looks phenomenal! Fantastic center piece.

Thank you magenb!  Those are two elements I was a little worried about so it’s good to hear they turned out ok.  :)

Thanks guys much appreciated!

I’m also happy to report that the shrine is finally done!




I just want to say that the cages, especially the one with the skeleton in it, where an absolute be-atch to put together and might possibly fall off or apart at a later date. 

But in the meantime I’m pondering adding a glow effect around the eyes to enhance their aura.  Maybe a wash of green around the rock?  What do you guys think?
