Also thinking about whether it would be better to flock the ground after the resin cures so it does't get soaked up out of the pools as much.

Nah, looks great as is: there’s often a soggy area around the edge of pools Thumbs up

I'm thinking I'll delay the flocking but maybe I'll brush some resin around to make the ground look wet.

Had to mess around with scraps of foam to bevel the edges of the ponds but I've now based and covered things with sculptamold.

Sculptamold is always fun!

Interesting.  I knew that the Ethiopian Emperors  used the ambas as prisons for people that had a bit too good a claim to the throne.  Since the mesa top could be farmed commerce with the outside world could be minimized. 

Normally, I'd associate stone houses with Tigray.  Also, if that village is really 900 years old then for long part of that, it would be one of the larger towns in Ethiopia.  Like I said, interesting.

In other 40k news, I watched a few Premier League games over the weekend and during those turned some sprues into bricks then I made these:



The bricks are quite convincing but I'll have to think about what configuration might be better for accommodating models.

As always, I love how encouraging this place is.  Thanks guys!
