In other news, I've actually used green stuff for the first time! Yes I know, it's taken me long enough, and I haven't done anything particularly clever with it, but the results are pretty good for a first attempt.
I followed Dark Templar's advice and sculpted in more trunk and some roots, so it looks a little more natural. The base will be the first thing I paint on this mini, so I should have some work in progress shots soon.
Work on the next article continues, as the deadline is the end of the week (I'm not panicking, honest). I've done a bit of practicing with the camera recently and I'm going to be looking at some new backgrounds for the photos. I've set myself a target of one blog post a week, usually on a Saturday or Sunday - we'll see how that goes...
As always comments and criticism welcome!
