This week was mainly about getting the figure painted before making some very small and final additions (such as a few twigs and a skull) before taking photos of the finished diorama. I do find it very satisfying that you can take a few bits of old crap and turn them into something else entirely. I must give another shout out to Table Top World, the cottage truly is a stunning kit and I can’t wait to get started now on the Wizard Tower.
The central character to this diorama is a Reaper Chronoscope figure which goes by the name of Crazy Pete. It’s a figure I have had an eye on for a while but hadn’t decided exactly what to do with him. Then as things do an idea started to form and then as they say the rest is history.
Holding a nugget and doing a jig gave rise to the title of the diorama. Did Pete discover pure gold or fools gold? Did he die a wealthy man in luxury or is he buried up in them there hills a broken sole? Well I will leave that for you to decide. Meanwhile images of the completed diorama, taken mostly outside for some natural light, appear below.
Thank you for your perseverance I hope you have enjoyed following the build.
Next week I will get started on the Wizard Tower.
