Continuing with the Abyssal army, next up is two troops of Gargoyles.

These models from Mantic are normally balanced precariously on little pillars, which looks okay, if a little silly. I wanted to see what I could do to improve that.

Since I have been semi-embracing multi-basing with this army I thought since Gargoyles are a Gothic architecture thing perhaps I should have them flying over a Gothic ruin built from blocks from my Gothic Hirst Arts moulds.

I painted them on their little pillars in the same basic scheme used on all my above-ground Hirst Arts terrain and then cut them off the pillars before gluing them in place flying over the ruins of a church wall.

Although I normally dislike buildings and other large structures on movement trays, I think this works rather well.


  1. They look great Richard, the ruins work well and the whole army comes together nicely :-)

    1. Thanks! There's still quite a few more units to complete yet. So far that's about 1200 points and I have well over 2000 to go.

    2. Look forward to seeing the whole army in future :-)
