Iglesia de Cerro Grande

Just made some modifications to my Church. I removed the deformed top and replaced it with a better dome. I was lucky enough to find a discarded plastic Easter egg. What I did was drill a hole in the top where the cross would be fitted eventually. I then covered the egg half with masking tape and three coats of spackle. Once the spackle was dry enough I sanded down the high spots and found I need to drill the hole larger. The cross is made from 1/4" balsa and notched on either side. I also used a pencil sharpener to round out the bottom so it would fit snugly into the egg. Once everything was glued in place I primed black and repainted this piece. I decided to change the color of the cross so it would stand out. As you can see in the second picture the top is removed and reveals a dice tower. I just need to buy a bell to go into the tower and this will be all set.

More Chronopia Figures

I just finished up a few more Chronopia figures. Another 8 are qued up on my paint table. There are a few slingers, warriors and 2 groups of Blade maidens left. Once I work through these I will switch gears for the Modern jets I have. They should prove easy to paint. For those who did not spot the previous conversion I removed the Wyrd's antlers and placed them on the Spearman. The Wyrd is the kneeling guy with the stag antler standard.

I have not painted or flocked their bases as I will be rebasing them with 30mm round lipped bases so these ones are only for painting. I want to order some Black Scorpion and Reaper Western figures to get that realm back on track but right now I have plenty of stuff to paint and convert.

The guy with the double bladed axe is also a conversion.
