So, the second scenario for Rangers of Shadow Deep involves ‘nest trees’, and while I could just pop some Halloween spiderweb on some of my existing trees, I fancied making something slightly fancier (that I’m still going to slather in fake spiderweb):
I went a lot lighter on the foliage than on my previous trees, as I envisioned also using these as spooky trees in a barren graveyard or similar, where lush verdant growth might look out of place. And with that, they were done:
Five spooky trees! While the scenario needs four nest trees, one of the random encounters adds an additional one, so five is the perfect number.
The Tally also took a hit, as I ordered some minis from North Star using their Halloween offer, which apparently I forgot to take a picture of before ripping three open for cleaning and basing. I’d hoped to have them painted sooner, but unfortunately there was a pack missing from the original order, the replacement of which got caught up in the postal strikes and so didn’t turn up until the end of my week off of work…
I grabbed ten wolves and two werewolves (for the first Silver Bayonet solo scenario), the lovely Silver Bayonet vampires (for the second Silver Bayonet solo scenario - I should probably paint up a unit!), as well a banshee because it was cool and heavily discounted, and even got a freebie mini too! All of which takes the Tally to:
73 vs 81 = -8
Back into the red! I should be able to drag it back into the positive before the end of the year, unless Santa comes laden with minis…
