Man, this stuff is really great! I can tell you've channeled Skyrim quite well into these pieces.. will look forward to a tutorial; I've just begun working on some terrain pieces, and could use any tips/suggestions.

Very nice, as usual :)
The patterns on the stone is that freehand or have u used transfers or some cut out mold?
Snikpik - January 15, 2012 09:21 AM (GMT)
YOu say you havent mastered the water effects but I really like that waterfall as it is. Look forward to more in this blog...
dreamspirit - January 15, 2012 10:24 AM (GMT)
thanks guys I appreciate all the comments, I will post some more soon!
@BorkBork: one of my artists is making that pattern with some kind of stamping tool ;)
Wazoo - January 15, 2012 11:21 AM (GMT)
Very nice! I really like them. You have a cool style that you don't normally see in warhammer, bright and fantasy like, it makes a good contrast to all the dark terrain....
I really like the waterfall, the water looks great! My only comment would be the fallen standing stone (fourth picture from the top) looks a little unnatural. Mainly because the top stone is still attached. I would assume that the stones were not mortared (in real life) instead just held in place by their weight. If so then the top stone would have fallen off. Even if they were fastened by some kind of mortar the stone looks so heavy it would have broken more...
At least that's my feeling when looking at it...

Wow... This terrain is fantastic! I'm really impressed. The waterfall is beautiful. Ill have to steal that idea at some point.
Oh, and thanks for your tutorial on instant mould. It's part of my next big greenskin project, and probably all other projects from here on. That stuff is amazing!!! :o

Great to see ya still working on terrain
they just keep getting better
Noisy Assassin - January 15, 2012 04:40 PM (GMT)
This stuff is very pretty. Would be great to see two fully painted armies fighting over a board filled with it.

Great stuff, really like the leaves on the red tree on piece number 1. Also the arcane runis are really nice. But my favourite is the fortified keep.
I do however agree Wazoo's comment on the fallen stone in pic 4.
dreamspirit - January 18, 2012 01:42 PM (GMT)
thanks mate, I'm glad you like them ;)
Groznit Goregut - January 18, 2012 03:06 PM (GMT)
Great stuff! I especially like the cave with the river. Nicely done. I like the castle, too.
dreamspirit - January 18, 2012 03:32 PM (GMT)
Groznit, thanks, how you've been mate?
Wazoo - January 21, 2012 12:16 PM (GMT)
I really like the castle, the green vegetation really adds to it!
dreamspirit - January 24, 2012 11:45 AM (GMT)

Damnit! Now I have to try that at home.
And I've been promissing myself no more terrain projects :(
Anyways, great looking terrain mate. I love the realism of the pieces.
Wazoo - January 25, 2012 07:02 PM (GMT)
Very cool, although I am not sold by the LED....
dreamspirit - January 25, 2012 10:47 PM (GMT)
thanks guys, I really appreciate it.
LED;s look way better in real life, I just couldn't capture the atmosphere good enough.

Done and done!!! :yarr!:
You latest stuff is bloody impressive. I'll follow your youtube blog for sure :)
dreamspirit - January 26, 2012 11:28 AM (GMT)
thank you very much :)
dreamspirit - January 27, 2012 08:32 PM (GMT)
Now for some High Elf stuff!
Mountain temple of the Elves, very cool looking on the battlefield, quite big, plenty of space to hide your miniatures, and again plenty of space to fight on the actual terrain. Let me know what you think!
Wazoo - January 31, 2012 05:57 PM (GMT)
Nice! are the elves there as statues or for scale purposes? I would say that the pattern on the ground could have looked more worn but I have no idea how that could be achieved...
dreamspirit - February 1, 2012 10:42 AM (GMT)
elves are the statues for the terrain piece, Wazoo thanks for the comment!
Snikpik - February 1, 2012 12:19 PM (GMT)
Yep like it. I'm not 100% sold on the high elf miniatures serving as statues though.

I wanted to comment on using bases for pedestals. But this ays it all really.
Remember, modelling people know what bases look like, so anything you want to look like a statue you should try and get a different base.
If you look around you can find them easily and cheap. Like the cap of a tube of toothbrush for example. Very nice for a pedestal.
But notheless, a very great piece of terrain. Great atmosphere to it. Nice flocking and painting variations on there (which make a great piece IMO).
Snikpik - February 1, 2012 02:53 PM (GMT)
Yeah maybe a pedestal would make them look more statue like, I can envisage that now...
dreamspirit - February 1, 2012 09:04 PM (GMT)
Thanks for the comments guys, I am going to experiment with different pedestals, I appreciate the advice. I got a lot of good comments on flocking, so if anyone;s interested, this flock is home made, and I will make a tutorial for my Youtube channel.
update on the thread coming soon, thanks all!

New update: just today I finished the commission for a client: Wood Elf Border Stones. Here's couple of pictures and if you want to see more, there is more on the blog and the website ;) Enjoy,
dreamspirit - February 1, 2012 09:48 PM (GMT)
Another commission, a dwarf army display board, started out as a concept art:
then we started building it, and with few alterations to get more space for the minis we ended up here:
more pictures on my website and blog, let me know what you think ;)

Like the new terrain BTW. The dwarf board looks ace!
Wazoo - February 4, 2012 05:30 PM (GMT)
Nice waystones and an amazing display board! I really like it!
Snikpik - February 4, 2012 06:20 PM (GMT)
The Dwarf piece is excellent.
dreamspirit - May 14, 2012 07:03 AM (GMT)
Okay guys it's time for an update, I have been very busy and atop of that, some personal issues swamped me down so I really haven't had the time to make proper update.
In the meantime, my studio is making a real progress, lots of commissions are finished and in the next couple of days I'll post what we completed so far.
So let's start with some display boards:
first of all, here is a giant High Elf display board
