During the last years my daughter forced me to know any stone of Hogwarts and the world of Harry Potter inside out. Lately she got a new obsession, this time it's everything about Sherlock Holmes. Maybe due to Bebedict Cumberbatch as the cool (and good looking) detective ?
This is here blog about this, ehm, subject :)
Anyway, I made a little diorama inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyles famous story "The hound of the Bakservilles".
Miniatues are from Reaper: Holmes, Watson, the hound

I sprang to my feet, my inert hand grasping my pistol, my mind paralyzed by the dreadful shape which had sprung out upon us from the shadows of the fog. A hound it was, an enormous coal-black hound, but not such a hound as mortal eyes have ever seen. Fire burst from its open mouth, its eyes glowed with a smouldering glare, its muzzle and hackles and dewlap were outlined in flickering flame. Never in the delirious dream of a disordered brain could anything more savage, more appalling, more hellish be conceived than that dark form and savage face which broke upon us out of the wall of fog.
