I am asking because I was thinking of making one but am not sure what would be the best type of tree to use a reference.

LOL :icon_lol: , sorry Kurt I missed that one totally :icon_redface: Thanks for the wikipedia link. Its been a long and busy day.

Anyway  :offtopic: so what do you guys think, would this be something you would like to see? I was actually thinking of a set with the dragon gnawing at the roots, the eagle perched above, and the squirrel. let me know what you think.

This was another link I found on it: http://www.pantheon.org/articles/y/yggdrasil.html

I'm not sure if i would buy something like that. But its intersting how influenced by Norse mythology the fantasy genre is. Most undoubtedly because of Tolkien. Everything from dwarves/trolls/elves and dark elves.. very cool.
Wikipedia is great!

Anyway  :offtopic: as usual. I like the idea though, the Norse fanatics would love to paint that up as a diarama

for now it is just an idea. If I do go ahead, it would probably be a limited edition type of thing.

It would depend on the execution of the concept. As an idea its a good one. A pig to cast and sell, but good for custom made finished piece.

Not something i would buy myself but it's mostly single or a few figures i would paint.
The conbined Herresy\Hasslefree Minitor and Reaper Hill Giant are the only big figures i have done or am doing.

What sort of scale are you going for.
