The Monastery of Alt-Wittendorf

Welcome to the Monastery of Alt-Wittendorf in Wittenberg, home of Brother James ..

Brother James has just arrived back and is conversation with the Abbot ..

Some monks practice the little known martial arts techniques of Llap Goch, brought to the monastery in medieval times by a visiting welsh monk...

A group of monks near the monastery, they are on a pilgrimage, and have come to visit the shrine of St Tibulus...
[ The monastery is made up of some spare buildings on an A4 box folder lid, figs are from Gripping Beast and from Irregular Miniatures (some converted).]

  1. Oh, I like your Monastery very much. You always make such wonderful dioramas.

  2. Indeed you are as successful with the buildings and 'settings' as with the military miniatures.

    Compliments,

  3. Excellent diorama, Tidders! Fitting indeed for St. Tibulus, he of the famous "Passion..." ;)

  5. Good Morning Allan,

    That's a fantastic monastery you have there! I agree, the background scenery that you set up for your photos shows off your figures well in addition to providing visual interest in its own right.

    Best Regards,

    Stokes
