10mm Storch Aerial Observer for Battlegroup

I was trying to clear up some mess on my painting desk and decided to base up this Feisler Storch 1/144 pre-painted plane.

Super easy to do, it is held up with brass rod (which is very sturdy) and held in place on the base and in the hole I drilled in the plane with two part epoxy resin.  I flocked the base like the rest of my army and now I have an aerial observer plane for Battlegroup!  :-)

Fenris Fountain

Once in a while I like to mix it up from painting miniatures and do a terrain piece.  I love the resin stuff from Fenris, and decided to paint up this fountain I picked up from them a while ago.

I had it all painted up and flocked, and was excited to try out the Woodland Scenics water (I never had before).  It's super easy to use - you just pour it in and wait a day and a bit to dry before adding more layers.

I put a post-it note over the water and took it outside for a Dullcote.  Wrong!  Here's what happened to the water effect that was touched by the Dullcote:

I didn't have much of an option, so I tinted up some water effect with green paint and poured it in, with a bit of flock on top.

I don't have all the nice bits at the bottom of the fountain to look at anymore, but I think it looks a bit more creepy with the green tint.  :-)
