Fauxhenge

A mystical stone circle proves no deterrent to some evil hyena-pig-dogs.

Stonehenge, where demons dwell and cats meow, is an icon of the mythical race of druids and a recurring symbol of the faux mysticism of ROCK. Having a miniature stone circle/henge to send my tiny pretend people into, in order to summon demons/drink cider/ingest hallucinogens/tell lies in order to get laid [DELETE AS APPLICABLE] has been on my to do list since I was a kid.

The end result looks a little more like a series of carefully balanced Milky Way bars than I had hoped, but it’s fun all the same.

Although miniature stone circles are one of the easier terrain projects for a hobbyist to make from cheap/free and easily available materials, I bought this set. It was difficult to argue with the price.

I quite enjoy painting large Reaper Bones items. They are rugged and indelicate, which means that I tend to be quite happy working on them in a clumsy, slapdash fashion, similar to my lovemaking.

I spent a day in the sun painting this from start to finish… back in 2018. Being Reaper Bones, it had to be brush undercoated, but the warm, dry Irish summer’s day (yeah, really) made drying times rapid.

Witch Hunter Byron Maiden leads the faithful in search of pagans to burn.

I didn’t do anything particularly clever when painting it, just a fairly simple application of browns, greys and a little bit of green here and there.

I took a little bit of inspiration from this Warhammer TV tutorial, but diverged from it a fair bit. The principles and main approach used were the same though.
