Shard of the Herdstone

At Brawler Bash, I'll be running the Shard of the Herd Stone as a magic item, and that meant representing it as a piece of terrain.  I had a Trygon base that I'm not using, and I wanted the Stone itself to be pretty massive (especially since Brawler Bash requires a painting "centerpiece" for your army in its paint scoring).  Thus, out of box clay was born the Super Shard!  It's lucky that this is the shape that Herd Stones should basically come in, as it's also probably the most complicated shape that I'm capable of sculpting.  It's super fragile, so I'm hoping it will carefully survive the next couple weeks, then to be retired to shelfdom and occasional play.


  1. Nice. Great idea and great implimentation. That's a crazy painting requirement, but could lead to some cool things to look at during the weekend.

  2. I should clarify that it's an extra point on the tournament painting score...not something that you have to have to attend.


  3. Very pretty. I like the painting style, though if you'll forgive me a small critique, the photography gives it a very shiny appearance.

    It really does look like the sort of thing that Beastmen from the dark forests might cavort around.
