The wolf howls, the ravens flee, the ice mutters in mouths of the Sea

I got some basing stuff from Scibor miniatures, in case you’ve been thinking of getting some I’ll tell you all about it!

Not supergood casts I’d say, a bit of airbubbles on the ruins (doesn’t matter much on ruins though) and some of it has got quite A LOT of flash.

Elven basing kit parts is the round ones, uneven thickness and there’s a line about midway that makes me think they should have about half as thick as they are (some parts actually are). Not very impressed.
Though I love the looks of them and they’re ruins so I don’t mind much.
Would have been nice if they could have been a little thinner so they were a little more in line with the lip of the bases. Would have liked there to be a full round piece as well, you can technically cut pieces and puzzles them together to a round one but it would be too big to fit a 50mm base. Sucks.
Lovely design though.

Egyptian ruins and some skull rosettas. Both nice casts, no flash, tiny bit of bubbles on the skulls but nothing bad.

Shield are nice, I like the design, though they are a bit uneven in thickness. Might be a nuisance if you plan on using them for actual shields, I had more in mind of using them om bases as reliefs or broken shields and such.
Lots of flash on these as well.
The panels are nice, about the size of a cavalry base. They are a bit hard to remove from the sprue without breaking, I managed to break off a corner piece on one of mine. They’re quite bent as well, but I’m thinking some time in a warm bath will allow them to be bent back.

I used some of the elves ruin parts to make bases for my Gamezone eagles. I think they fit nicely with the models.

This one will be the crow, I think the beak is the only part I needed to remodel, the rest will pass for a crow if it’s got the right colors ;)

This one will be the magpie. I think longer tailfeathers will be a good counter balance to those forward outstretched wings. It doesn’t look very centered on the base as it is now.

    Hej! Undrar om du vet varifrån drakmuggen som du skrev om i det här inlägget: http://ethelie.wordpress.com/2010/11/21/im-dancing-with-myself/
    kommer ifrån. Har letat efter precis en sån jättelänge utan att hitta den sen jag såg en liknande för länge sen :)
