Hobby Project - Shady Rest Cemetary

So I've already admitted that my crew was commission painted by Blue Table Paint but just to prove that I have some talent and because I'm currently starting another Malifaux board project, I thought I'd share pics and information on my first project, Shady Rest Cemetery.

Inspired by the short story 'Confessions of an Aspiring Resurrectionist', which is coincidentally the inspiration for this blog name, I wanted to recreate the feel and experience of playing in a cemetery. In Malifaux that opens up special rules for graveyards, tombstones and creepy structures.

For this project I've used:
- GW Garden of Morr set
- 2 x GW WHFB fences set
- GW Scenery trees set
- 12 x GW biker bases
- 9 x GW terminator bases
- 2 x Rendra grave stone sets
- Low fire clay for shaping up grave mounds
- Fine basing sand

I can't take credit for this one all myself, my wife spent as many hours on this as I did, and has gone on record as saying that if she EVER had to paint another skull I'd be 6ft under pushing up daisies. I'd also like to thank William for teaching me about low fire clay and helping me with grave sculpting.
