I’ve found time here and there to complete another little vignette. This one features a dead tree, which I haven’t done in a while. As usual, this one is a kind of lesson to be applied in basing minis, as well as a little imaginative refuge in its own right.

Here are several figures converted for our growing 40k universe. I should have a few more finished models for my Dark Angels kill team soon.
The prone plasma gunner was an interesting challenge.
