Last week I decided that my Chiefs and Heroes needed 35mm bases to make them stand out. Now, One Does Not Simply Go to the Warbases website and buy a pack of bases.
No WIP pictures of these as they go together so simply.
I added planks to the wall and a flannel thatch. I'm not sure about the former (see later). For the photo I hung a shield above the door to make it all a little less Brown. But again I'm not sure. I may paint the door or walls or both a different colour.
The next item is a combination of the Celtic cross and a casualty marker to make a turn counter.* I did toy with the idea of giving it the full Dark Age colour scheme, but decided that leaving it grey

Another reason for buying them was to compare them with what I could do myself...
I recently bought a batch of business cards and post cards for Diplomatist Books. Like most people, when I get something through the post, my immediate thought is that the packaging looks really nifty.

The addition of some bamboo skewers and sandy paste was a lot easier than planks and resulted in a tidier look.

While dry-brushing the Celtic cross, I took a couple of other items from the terrain queue.
Then there is one of the runestones I got from Fenris at Dicini 2014. Again, I should have gone with the original paint scheme, but I bottled it.
