Default Mountain of words

Hey people.
have just finished a new part of terrain.
I called it the mountain of words (parts of it are made of newspaper)
Its made of gypson and paper. I'll post some pics starting with its beginning to the end.

First pic is the naked mountain (by the way: it was my girlfriend to create it ;D )


second one: here we painted it with water time color (no idea if its the right translation, but what does it matter)
additional, we glued some stones on the front to give it the feeling of a "real" mountain (Actually I think its just a hill, but my girlfriend...ouch)


here is the final "mountain" with parts of my army plus some details. the part of the trophy isn't focussed, but shooting pics isn't a thing I'm very good at.

Oooohh I like!
Neat peice of scenery, and great name as well - I like the Tau paintjob from what I can see, too.

One thing that gets me are the Ork heads impaled on a tree - I find it much more likely that an Ork would do that to captured Tau than vice versa.

I had a realistic model. Everytime I look out of my window thats what I see.
Maybe the mushrooms are not that big and blue, but thats the only difference.

You should ask Tau Online about my report. He asked for it about 2 month ago and I sent it. Still waiting for him setting it up on the HP. It's more detailed and and with more pics.
