Great job to everyone this month, everyone's ideas for this theme were very creative and maybe a tad... crazy. Hope to see you all next month!

Starting with sethsides

I really like the clear green gems. As well as the pale green color symbol, (what is it it looks like a necron symbol, but I don't know 100%... btu going with the colors i'm guessing it is necrons.) Also you did a nice job on high lighting the cracks with green.

Cam's

I like the tree it's creative looks really cool, and it looks haunted and really interesting. The paint job on the tree looks like an actual tree.

Xand's

I enjoy looking at this one because i like floating islands, i've always enjoyed the terrain people make when it's floating. The trees look great and so does the island itself. The waterfalls are nice and I really like the roots hanging down.


in the end I voted for sethside

All three entrys this month are great.

The Necron one is plain, simple yet conveys a sense of "something could happen any second"

The tree is an awesome concept as is the floating island, but they could use a bit more work to make them truly awesome in exection. The tree needs to a better base i.e. more roots and nooks and crannys to make it more realistic. The eyes, teeth and paint job are great. The floating island is fantastic but could use two things: 1 painting the support pole in the middle a dark color to make it disappear and some colors added to the waterfall, i.e. reds for blood or bright greens or blues to make it look like it is flowing magical energy.

I'm going with Sethside's Archives Of The Damned since whis is the piece I would like to have on my table more than the other two. The Floating altar would have made first if the wooden dowel wasn't so in your face, but that detail made Seth's piece take gold.

Gotta say sethsides, very nice piece of basing that looks like he could've designed the Arcane ruins kit for GW.

I like the creepy tree
but voted on the cronny altar cause of my love for crons and cause the paintjob is also wicked (to my opinion) when I see this I get a feeling of a 'c tan being summoned (but again my opinion)
what do you get when you take necrons and put them in orks
hmmm....
maybe necrorks (robotick soulless orks with the mind of orks)

Sethside> The build came out great. Brick by brick is annoying if nothing else so props on that one. The cracked slab look perfect too, actually looks like something hit that one particular area there.(you didn't overdo it!) And the painting on the rune came out very very nice.
As I stated in your WIP thread, there needs to be some snow on top of the slab and arch to complete the look. Great work all around bud. What is interesting is that usually you will see rounded edges on the base but you made yours squared and it adds to the necron feel. Really came out great and would be a nice display base for a small diorama.

Cam> Loved this one, the texture of the bark is spot on and the expression you gave it really adds to the overall feel. I mean it's really creepy dude. Then you made it light up too. I noticed in one of the pics you made it so there are small holes beneath the platform so spots of light pour through and illuminate the mini from beneath. Great idea dude. It really doesn't even need to be lite up for it to look creepy though. Sort of looks like a blind rabid tree when not lit up.
I would have helped to give it a base I think, just to complete the look. Could have added in some scary shrooms dude!

Xand> Nice one dude. The tree's and roots came out great. I like how the roots of the tree are exposed(not the ones dangling but directly attached to the trees). Too bad the thing came out weighing too much in the end. Its still a great piece of terrain. It's a shame the book didn't make the final cut. It looked great on the alter there.

Nice work this month guys!
