The Realm of Battle Table for Any Scale!

This update takes "First Rank - FIRE!" in a slightly different direction. I wanted to complete the Citadel Realm of Battle Table I have been carrying around for over a year now. After careful consideration Adept and I decided that we wanted the table to work for any scale. I have seen over 25 completed Realm of Battle Tables and I took what I thought were the best techniques and combined them to create multi-scale table. However, with all the skulls and bones scattered about and the pits with the skulls I knew it would take a little work to make the table work for scales ranging from 15mm to 54mm.

I broke the process up into several parts:

1. Basic Painting.
2. How do I get rid of those pesky skulls?
3. What the Flock?
4. Creating a "Swamp" to fill in the skull pits.

The first installment is almost ready to publish!
