So here's the finished entry. Our valiant Sir Boris is ready to confront the beast at the cave of Caerbannog complete with a little title card in case its not clear to the casual viewer what's going on.
So here's a few more shots at various angles. The piece is based around an old GW Bretonnian foot knight model I've had for an age. As a grail knight he seemed to fit the bill nicely.
Facing him is a little bunny I put together in a hurry with green stuff and pro-create (not for any clever reasons, just my green stuff is a bit old so after making a few bits I threw it out and used whatever else I had). Someone pointed out I could have used the Malifaux Jackalope instead - I wish I had thought of that (and had time!) as I do want to add one to my collection, but this little fella did turn out ok and definitely cuter.

The base is made from mounting card with a couple of increasingly small circles of foam board stuck on top. Into this thicker base I was able to cut appropriate sized holes for the miniature's bases. Next I used bits of cork, slate and sand to add some texture. All the gaps were filled and smoothed using wood filler. Lastly I scattered a selection of GW skeleton bones around the site to show just how wide the vicious streak this rabbit has is.
