I realized I missed posting a earlier draft I had worked up that had more of the WIP pics of my Jack Daw crew. So I figured I would go ahead a throw them up.
Blank tray, so many possibilities. One of the things I like about these Malifaux projects I have done/planned is coming up with a theme for the crew.
Since I was doing a Jack Daw crew, I went and dug out my nightmare hanging trees, I bought years ago.
I ended up removing the hanging figures. Two reasons; One is that I broke one just playing around with placement, so I didn't think they would survive handling, the second is they are smaller than the other figures I was gonna be putting on the base, it looked kinda weird.
I sunk the trees and the washers into the cork. And then added the ballast
Gap filling. I watered down some milliput and tried that. Worked pretty good, still had to use greenstuff later to fill in some deeper gaps.
I decided that the trees needed something else. I went to Walmart and found some florist wire that had a braided patteren and was close to the right scale. and then kinda learned how to tie a noose, at least it looks like enought of a noose for my purpose.
one for each tree
Post first prime, where I realized I still needed to clean up some gaps.
rope turned out pretty good I think though
Final prime, though I should have just primed black, because i ended up painting it black. I was trying grey to do some pale deadish trees. Turned out black was the best starting point anyways.
