Labour 1 Defend a Village, it’s chief and a King – part 7

Posted: September 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

I’ve managed to find a bit of time to do some more work on the Mountain King’s base. Ignore the white splodge – that is water effect that is drying!
At the moment the base is too ‘cold’ it needs some ‘warm’ shades so I’ll be putting some mud and mossy green on next.
One particular point of interest is the fungus on the fallen log. Whilst out and about I came across an Oak that had some kind of small fungus on the leaves. I’m not sure what it is and I hope it’s not unpleasant as I grabbed a few leaves and brought them home.

A bit of gentle scalpel work was needed to remove them and make some nice fungal effect on the fallen log with minimum effort.


Edit: a quick bit of google-fu tells me that these are Spangle Galls. Apparently they eventually fall off the leaves and are the larvae of wasps. Hmmmm let’s hope I don’t regret this in a few months from now!
