Tabletop World Graveyard

Tabletop World Graveyard

It's time to share with you the  project that took most of my time for several months and kept me away from my Vampire Counts - the grand Tabletop World Graveyard! It was a crazy ride and I really enjoyed the whole process. After planing out the display board, I started by painting individual graveyard structures like the chapel, mausoleum, tomb, etc. Then I did all the smaller features: tombstones, vases, crows,... Finally, I painted all of the walls and fences and dead trees.

To create the flagstone walkways I used segments of Tabletop World Town Square.

I wanted the Graveyard to look pretty weathered, with lots of rusty elements and parts overgrown with grass, moss and lichen. I also wanted a lot of crows resting on the trees, tombstones and other graveyard features to give it that creepy feel.

Without further ado, I present to you the finished Graveyard:

As much as I enjoyed working on this big project, at the same time I was frustrated that my Undead are not progressing. However, now I have great scenic piece to use for taking photos of my future Vampire Counts characters and units! 🧛 

Very soon I will be posting painting tutorials on how I painted the stone, wood, rust and oxidized copper on this Graveyard! So keep an eye for it. ;) 

Now back to my beloved Undead! 💀
Cheers guys! 🍻

Really an amazing set! Love how decrepit and overgrown your version is. The graveyard will make for a great setting to your Undead!

Love it. The rust is spectacular, the trees look scary, the shack seems like barely standing and crows are a great touch. Kudos on moss (both on statues and trees) and plants in general. Very realistic stuff and a thing of beauty.
