The sticks are from the front yard. Clever, right? I mixed up some lighter tan and drybrushed the rocks, added some brown flock to the mud to break it up a little, and then when that wasn't enough, sprinkled in some dried tea as well. I like the tea a lot. Whereas coffees just a uniform dirt, which is great, the tea adds in that nature looks of random woodchips and bits that you'd find on the ground in a forest.
I then sealed the whole mess in some Krylon matte spray, and then watched Bolt with my wife. Such a great movie.
It got dark by this point, so the lighting is horrible, but I hope it gets the point there. I think they're coming along ok. Not quite as awe inspiring as I had hoped, but not bad.
Kinda give you an idea what I'm trying for here. I may angle the lances down so it looks like they've kind of reached the summit and are aiming at the troops nearby. Would be a bit more dynamic, less static, I think. Anyways. Progress for the day. I'll probably set the lances up for painting tonight, and work on a base for my Wife's journeyman.
