    I don’t think this scene needs much explaining, I have wanted to do it for so long, but minor problems kept delaying it.

    Gandalf the White is not quite as White as he could be courtesy of an ink wash, however it is done now :rolleyes:

    The stairway made for Entish legs was a bit awkward to fit in given my base restrictions but I think it turned out ok.

    Gandalf’s hat and grey cloak are scratch from Magic Sculpt, and I added the ‘tree’ more as a bit of artistic licence. Legolas needs a bow string added as well.

    I hope you enjoy – it’s good to be back now that we are reconnected to the internet :D, amazing how much you miss the bl**dy thing when you haven’t got it.

    This diorama shows again the high quality of Mr. David Daines!
    And this is the reason, why he was absence for four months, or were it five months . . . ;)
    The landscape is fantastic David, wow, and also a good choice who appeares in it . . .

    Never thpught this scene could be done with mithrils miniatures. Great that is.

    As usual I shall say Master David, I’m astonished with such realistic environment (almost as perfect as Grand Ma’s garden !).

    I ‘m really found of you trees !

    Maybe a training for all off us could be planned?

    Thank you for your comments, in this case Milo the little tree is the ‘real-deal’, a twig picked up and used. The rocks are plaster casts. I do have a load of plastic trees from Woodland Scenics but haven’t used them yet, as well as some stuff called Sea-Foam, which can be used to make some nice trees along with wire and masonry (textured) paint. Again I haven’t tried this but hope to do so.

    More on the way when I get a free moment ;)

    Kudos!
