Here is the Knights of Dice kit, just starting to remove the tombstones and bases from the frame.
There are plenty of tombstones and different bases to mount the tombstones on.
|Using a hand motor I etched cracks on the tombstones.|
|I decided to apply a thin layer of Vallejo black primer with a brush to preserve the lazer etching on the tombstones.|
Flat Earth Vallejo model colour paint was used to paint the base.
The tombstones base coat is Vallejo Game colour Stonewall Grey, and highlighted with VMC white grey, VMC offwhite and a few tiny touches of Ivory.
|Flocked with Woodland scenic Earthblend and some green flock.|

I also added a bit of green mould in random places on the tombstones.
