Re: Bishmeister's Darklands Hobby Blog

After being speckled with three different shades of red the brickwork was painted randomly with varying shades of yellow, brown and red ink to give a natural look. Emulsion was then washed into the scored surface which bleached the brickwork slightly and added a pale colour for the mortar. Green and...

Do Trolls/Hrafnmen/Jotun help with rowing the longships?
If so, do the longship designs differ from historical ones to account for their larger bulk?
