My Vampire Lord, now placed on it's base. The branches came from the Wood Elf Battalion set and were painted scorched brown, and then drybrushed codex grey and fortress grey.
Once I paint the skulls and base, I will add a gloss to create a water effect.
This is the start of my Vampire Lord on a mount. The horse came from a High elf Prince and Noble set while the horse's head belongs to a Wood Elf Wild Rider. I had to cut off the legs and much of the cape of my second Castellan of Dol Guldur to get him to fit on the horse and reposition his arm.
