This will be my first fantasy thread ever, I've painted some fantasy when I was younger but it's always been 40k that intrigued me the most.
So for the sake of trying something different for a painting comp at a Danish forum I opted for a fantasy entry to venture a bit out of my safe zone and really try and give this model 110% to test my own abilities.
The model I chose is the Casket of Souls as it is an awesome model and it presented me with an opportunity to try out a spiderweb technique that I've been wanting to do for a long time now.
I know it's supposed to rise from the sand on a heap of skulls, bu I don't really care, I really wanted to capture the ancient tomb feel and thus the plan is to cover it in spiderwebs en masse
The plinth is around 50mm in diameter as that is the maximum size allowed for the competition.
On to the pics:

And a spider as someone had to make all the messy spiderwebs to come
