|"Don't touch it! It is certain death!"|
Despite being advertised as only being 45mm wide, I soon found the "bright green, sticky, wet moss" to actually overlap the edges of the "50mm round plastic slotta-base" it came supplied with. So in the end I decided to super-glue it to a 60mm circular base instead. I then applied a basecoat of "Vallejo" Russian Uniform over the deadly ooze and washed it with copious amounts of "Citadel" Biel-Tan Green.

Once I felt the "horrible, fetid growth" was highlighted enough, I dabbed the entire thing with "Vallejo" Green Fluorescent and allowed it to dry. As a final touch, I went back in and reapplied more "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade to the highly corrosive creature's numerous bumps and bulbous stalks.

Due to being firmly in the "Dungeons & Dragons" zone currently, I have also made some quite appreciable progress on my 300mm tall Walking Statue of Waterdeep: The Honorable Knight by "Wizkids". Considering that this plastic stone construct actually came pre-painted and cost in excess of forty quid, I have definitely had to push through a phase in its pigmentation where I strongly questioned why I had stupidly decided to re-do the huge figure in the first place.
However, having now finished both the model's initial dry-brush of "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey, and its subsequent weathering using copious amounts of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade and Biel-Tan Green, I'm rather pleased I've invested all the energy and time on it. In addition, having managed to get the walking statue's enormous sword and shield shaded too, I now just need to spend a few hours patiently dry-brushing Waterdeep's guardian before the entire project is almost finished...
