My latest figure.British 42nd Highlander 1783,54mm figure from United Empire Miniatures. I created this groundwork setting in a 1 1/2 day class I took at the 2015 Atlanta Figure Show. Some steps: I glued a resin tree stump to the wood base, painted the tree and added branches and foliage to make a tree. The branches and tree roots are made of dryed tomato plant roots( very tuff when dryed).Next I Sculpted rocks from 2-part pool putty and stained them with a oil paint sepia wash making a nice realistic rock cropping for my figure to stand on. Next I added ground cover and plants adding touches of paint to give the a more realistic look. I painted my figure after I returned home and was very pleased to finish and place it in the scene.
