Terrain is everything - Sanctum Imperialis - TO DONE!

Aah the Sanctum Imperalis… It's taken a while to get the opportunity to take pictures but I needed some to add to last season's hobby review.It's a big piece and so it's a struggle to fit it into my homemade light box but I got there in the end.As you may recall this was a project not without challenges, in particular the 'bold' choice of full verdigris on buttresses, supports and skirting boards.The red glass lighting also suffered from a lack of contrast that I repeated on my Ravenwing Dark Shroud - sometimes Tamiya Clear Red X-27 is too good.But the colour choices were made to stretch me, to do something more challenging than just the weathered brassy bronze and as you can see the Ferron Proxima background finally gives it the context it needed.On the full red/orange background the verdigris provides the ideal framework to break up the monotony of the red rockcrete walls.With the cream interior adding another dimension.I can't wait to eventually see these used on my Realm of Battle board, although that cou
