When I discovered Moonstone last year, there were so many models I wanted to paint. We got a demo kit in for the shop, and I was tasked with painting the goblins, so they kind of automatically became my troupe. I loved them, and I love playing them, but there were still models left that I wanted to paint. So I’ve decided to create a little diorama for them, based on the idea of a creepy masquerade ball. The models I wanted for it are:

  • The Beast
  • The Duchess
  • Creep
  • The Revenant

So I smiled nicely at Darren and promptly took those boxes off the shelves.

First up, I wanted some nice bases for them. I wanted them to look like they were actually in a ballroom. I grabbed the Green Stuff and filled the top of the base with a nice, even coverage of it. Then, I took a craft knife and scored out a chequered pattern on the top. As it started to dry, I kept going back and cleaning up the scoring, until I had well defined squares on each base. Once completely dry, I painted them in traditional black and white.

I also found a couple of candle sconces in a random bits box, so I painted those up too. They’ll look great in the ballroom.
