Brandon has been BUSY this year! He does incredible painting work and every year creates amazing, one of a kind display pieces for Adepticon. What really blows my mind though, is that knocks them out in a month! Wow!

Dawn Found Her Elven Terrain From Fantasy Arc

24 Comments

Like a moth to the flame, I was drawn over to the Fantasy Arc stand to have a look at the gorgeous elven terrain I've been drooling over- and Yes, it's even more impressive in person. I especially love the WIP for the bridge. There's debate over the roof on the bridge, but I have to say, I love it as is.
