  1. Making Micro-Scale Buildings with Plaster

    papabees, they're decal paper run through an inkjet printer. I print them out of Illustrator so I can print 100% black, 100% cyan, and 60% magenta to make a richer black.
  2. Painting a Bones Shoggoth.

    Here's a quick video of me painting a Reaper shoggoth. I wanted to test Citadel Black Primer on Bones as well as work on my video production, so I chose a very simple miniature to paint. Having also painted the Bones Cthulhu, I'm really looking forward to the Mr. Bones 3 Mythos rewards. https://youtu.be/P9sfdLqm5q0
  3. Making Micro-Scale Buildings with Plaster

    Sorry lowlylowlycook. Just spreading the disease.
  4. Hi everyone, Lately I've been using throw-away plastic bits like blister packs and sauce cups as molds to make plaster buildings. It's a pretty cheap way to get a lot of buildings and once you start collecting things to use as molds you'll be amazed at what's out there. https://youtu.be/Yvmb6F_2ivw
  5. CAV Infantry Questions

    Hi everyone, I just picked up three packs of 24536 Heavy/PA Infantry and had a few questions. 1. Are the four minis on each sprue grouped to go on each base? 2. Are all infantry bases made up of four minis? 3. How many bases of infantry will a normal battlegroup contain? Thanks in advance!

    Less than eighteen hours to go! https://www.kickstar...h-bits-part-two
  7. Trash Bash Bits for Making Sci-Fi Buildings

    We reached the fifth stretch goal yesterday so all ten Trash Bash Bits are available! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847163926/trash-bash-bits-part-two
  8. Trash Bash Bits for Making Sci-Fi Buildings

    Smaller scale bits are certainly something I want to do since I'm going to need buildings for CAV and Robotech Tactics myself. They're in the pipeline for the middle of 2016 at this point.
  9. Hi everyone! I just started a second Trash Bash Bits campaign on Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847163926/trash-bash-bits-part-two Trash Bash Bits were created to make the crafting of wargame buildings faster and more fun by eliminating the need to scratchbuild doors and windows to add to projects. The first Trash Bash Bits Kickstarter campaign was very successful and helped to create five designs of science fiction doors and windows. Trash Bash Bits 2 will add to this collection with five new designs! The castings of the first TBB campaign were enthusiastically praised by backers for being sharp and clean. The detail on the final castings actually looks sharper than on the prototypes! Plus they are lightweight and have flat backs so you can glue them easily to plastic, foamcore, styrofoam, or any other common modeling material. Don't throw away your time. Use Trash Bash Bits!
  10. Unboxing CAV Kickstarter Goodies.

    Here's another video showing how interchangeable the parts are. Lot's of conversion possibility with these. http://youtu.be/-gCSndb-6Rg
  11. Unboxing CAV Kickstarter Goodies.

    Just got my CAV Kickstarter rewards and posted a short video showing them off. Lot's off cool stuff in a very small box! I can't wait to start painting them. http://youtu.be/xg2WuuzE1lA
  12. Hi everyone! I've started playing in a Numenera game and needed a mini for my character Chert Blazebeard. So I created one using a Torch McHugh. More pics and info on my blog: http://roebeast.blogspot.com/2014/10/converting-and-painting-miniature-for.html
  13. Eldritch Demon.

    Just a quick pic of the Eldritch Demon I painted years ago. You can see him being really tiny in the pictures of the C'thuhu I posted recently. The little professor mini is by Tom Meier and was a demo piece for a possible Call of Cthulhu line. They minis were to be 15mm or so and work with HO train buildings. Sadly the line was never developed and this little guy has been lost in some dark storage facility. To point out how amazing Meier's sculpting is, on the book cover you could clearly read "NECRONOMICON".
  14. Painting a Bones C'thulhu.

    Thanks for all of the compliments everyone! I really appreciate them. The colors I used were pretty simple. Black primer with a damp-brush of Scorched Brown. Damp-brush of Orkhide Shade. Dry-brush with Orkhide Shade lightened with Khaki and then White. Washes of Thraka Green, Agrax Earthshade, Reikland Fleshshade, and Leviathan Purple. On the flat smooth areas this was stippled with a bristle brush to create a subtle patterning. Otherwise I didn't highlight things to too many levels, maybe three maximum. I tended to drybrush far too much and then knock it back with washes/glazes. This creates a depth that I like. I'm doing something like a dip method but just trying to control it more. It's fast, fun, and effective. And cthulhudarrren the decision to go with 15mm is so I can get many more figures on a battlefield for the "still being written" rules Eldritch Empires. I'm hoping to have them out next year at some point.
  15. Painting a Bones C'thulhu.

    Just a few pics of the Bones C'thulhu I finished over the weekend. I painted this without being too fussy in an effort to break "painters block" that I've had for too long. Not being overly precious with it was a lot of fun and has made me want to get back into the hobby. More info on my blog: http://roebeast.blogspot.com/2013/09/painting-reaper-bones-cthulhu.html
