Hellpit Abomination - SCReeeeEEeeeee!!

Just a quick post today to show off my newly completed Hellpit Abomination!

It's.... so beautiful....


  1. I've always found this to be one of the craziest models GW has done. I relly like the green pieces you incorporatednot only on the obvious stones but also on the claws and tusks. Brings the piece togehter nicely!

  2. how do you did the forest effect of the base?. Amazing work.

    1. I would also love to know!

    2. Hey guys - Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment! :)

      I made up a mix from various sources to achieve the forest floor look on my minis.

      I picked up a couple of brown flocks for the basic mix then went about scavenging different types of small woodland sticks, leaf debris, tree bark and moss / lichen from the woods near where I live.

      I like to keep my eyes peeled for turquoise moss as it's a really lively colour that I find breaks up the brown nicely.

      I also managed to get hold of some redwood fibres while on holiday - these are the beautiful reddy-brown lumps which I sparingly dot around.

      On top of this, I also use some tiny leaf punches on dried leaves to give some distinct fallen leaf shapes.

      Once I had collected all of the elements I wanted, I Put them all in a big tub along with a small amount of static grass, shook it up and hey presto; instant forest mix! :)

      I also dotted several different types of static grass clumps and painted stones here and there to give a really varied look.

      I highly recommend going to a forest or wooded area to just look around at the colours, textures and distribution of plants and debris. It's genuinely fascinating and helps inform a realistic miniature vignette!

      Come back soon!
