Now here is what the authors said about their works:

Ringwraith. This one is also recently finished. The base is made with PVA glue and natural materials – bark, soil (from garden), roots, dry leafs. It is the most complex base I made so far

Anyway, my brother is an Assassin’s Creed fan, so the colour choice for this was obvious. I put him on a quick Aetherworks cobblestone base and display plinth to present it a bit better
