I worked on the base for my monk vignette today, trying to get it done. Well, it's mostly done - I finished painting it and glued everything together. Tomorrow, after the glue has had a chance to set, I'll put in the figures and the project will be done. I found that the kind of messy stuff I made when puttying the join of the two pieces of Plasticine didn't look bad at all one I'd painted over it. It just blended right in with the rest of the texture. So, a small win there.
