This is Stan. Stan is one of the partially deceased citizens of Felstad made homeless by catastrophic climate change.
Stan shambles aimlessly around the streets every day. with nowhere to go. He and his friends, Nick and Muuuuh,
are just a few of those affected by the recent glacial retreat. They
are attacked by marauding gangs of vitalist 'adventurers' who treat them
as vermin. They now have no place to call their own, no safe space.
you can help. Just two gold crowns a month will help the Lich Lord's
Trust for Homeless Undead promote awareness of the plight of the
partially deceased community.
gold crowns will help the Lich Lord's Trust for Homeless Undead fund
the repurposing of a derelict mausoleum as emergency housing.
Four gold crowns will will fund the necessary magical infrastructure to maintain the unlife of Stan and his friends.
generous donation of five gold crowns per month will enable the
creation of safe 'undead-only' districts, where partially deceased or
incorporeal citizens can unlive free from vitalist discrimination.
So please, give generously and help ensure that Stan, Nick and Muuuuh have a place to call their own. Remember, a nightmarish hell-state 'twixt life and death isn't just for Christmas, it's forever...
now, back to your regularly scheduled blog post; this project is part
of my ongoing efforts to assemble an array of terrain for games of
Frostgrave. This one is the Mausoleum, a crucial piece of terrain for
one of the scenarios.
It was put together on a Warbases terrain base, assembled from foamcore, brick- and stone-textured card, old Mordheim
and GW castle doorways, and four old wedding cake pillars which have
been stashed away in the garage since last century (hoarder or hobbyist?
It's a bit of a grey area).
The body and roof of the
building were sized with tissue paper and PVA glue to enable a layer of
filler to be applied as stucco. Patches of the wall were given
brick-textured paper to double as exposed brickwork where the plaster
has fallen away over the centuries.
I've tried my hand
at three different marble effects for the plinth, pillars and roof, and
gone for a vaguely Romano-Etruscan finish on the stuccoed walls. I've
never painted marble before, and it's certainly been an education.
Architecturally, it's a bit of a hodgepodge, but I still hope that a shambling horde of undead can one day call it... Home.
That's all for now - thanks for reading!
