In my case the goodies in question was a selection of resin scenery from a company called The Square. Although they have a website, they only sell if you send them a cheque or meet them at a show. Whilst I was at Legionary on Saturday, I took advantage of their attendance. Although they have quite a broad range of nice looking pieces, I choose to go for a number of desert style resin casts to complement the Tomb king armies that are no doubt going to appear at the club in the coming weeks.
The figures are excellent value with a nice selection brought for a little over £15 (the advantage of club discount and a nice smile).
The resin is nice and dense and should stand up to a good amount of rough handling. I opted to add real sand to the base before painting. There are a number of air holes that could do with filling, but I elected to paint without making good and I don't think they are too excessive to distract from the quality of the pieces.
Size wise they are great for warhammer figures, but I plan to use the Sphinx figures either side of the steps of a building.
The sand was painted using the guide given on page 56 of WD377. To paint the sandstone terrain I started with vermin brown, worked up layers of drybrushing through 1:1 vermin brown & Tausept Ochre -> Tausept Ochre -> 1:1 Tausept Ochre & Dheneb Stone -> Dheneb stone. I followed this with a liberal wash of Ogryn flesh.
I have added a random skeleton figure to give a sense of scale.
