  1. Sometimes inspiration strikes and you start fiddling around with an idea without really planning it. This is my second ever piece of terrain, and first one in about 20 years (did a paper towel tube bunker in my teens). Started off with some packaging material, and decided I would make a garage. That then turned into a workshop, and then kept growing. Somewhere I decided that this would be the cyberpunk equivalent to a wizard's tower, by being the home of some sort of technomagus. Also when I paint it, will make more sense with the wizard reference (hint: yellow bricks at the garage entrance and an Oz themed mural on garage door.) Early WIP pics in second comment. First two pics are from when I first started amd it was still going to be just a garage. Third through fifth images are when I started getting the wizard tower idea wth it.
  2. D&D NPC: Beholder

    Made my own Beholder (sculpting WIP:http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67297-beholder/) and I can tell you, there's no way escaping it's ray of time consuming. Well it got finished at last, so here it is. Do you like it?
  3. I thought I would start my own Frostgrave terrain thread, since I started on my second ruin this week, and don't see my self stopping anytime soon. And, I didn't want to keep posting links in David's excellent Frostgrave terrain thread found here, http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65272-frostgrave-terrain/ , and detract from his efforts. For those that missed it, I already posted my first ruin here in the Frostgrave thread in the Fantasy sub-forum: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63635-frostgrave/?p=1252554 This week, I thought I'd take things to another level and try my hand at a two-story ruin... Two improvements I wanted to try this week were to add more debris on to the base; and to mount the building on a squared base to help it feel more like an urban building. The main structure is made from cork tiles, and the extra details are made with balsa and bass wood. IMG_5605 by cnjpalmer IMG_5606 by cnjpalmer
  4. Homemade Ochre Jelly

    After seeing Laoke's slimes, I wanted an ochre jelly with translucency. Hotglue shaped by dunking a mass of it into icewater (great tip I saw on the DM's Craft FB page), building up a wave. Used a lighter to melt down any wispy hotglue threads (one snuck by), then hotglued to a 1.5" base already prepped as cave floor. Slathered on a mix of yellow-orange food colouring and slow curing Delta Creative PermEnamel gloss. TBH it's more yellow in person, being very close to Laoke's G-cube's colour. but my camera refuses to capture that.
  5. Visitation (Magnificat)

    This one is not a Reaper piece, but one of Reaper's excellent sculptors is responsible for these miniatures, the very talented Andy Pieper. These are the original greens, at the 54mm scale (chicken included). I made the wall out of Milliput and the plant leaves out of paper and wire. The scaled-down images dull the color something fierce, so please view full-size. Work in Progress Painting thread is here. Andy's Sculpting WIP thread is here. Thank you to Derek Schubert for his help with Elizabeth's face, and for meeting with me for an hour in person to talk minis this past September. Thank you to Andy Pieper for a beautiful sculpt. Thank you to Our Lady for the inspiration for this project, my Mother, on whom our Lord has indeed looked with great favor. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Savior for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed: the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name. He has mercy on those who fear him in every generation. He has shown the strength of his arm, he has scattered the proud in their conceit. He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, and has lifted up the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty. He has come to the help of his servant Israel for he remembered his promise of mercy, the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham and his children forever. (Lk 1:46-55)
  6. I've debated for nearly two weeks on if I should start this thread at all and have had this window open on the post being written for more than two days. But it's time to just fire it off. And since this is going to be a long wall of text, I'll post a short tl:dr summary: tl:dr summary: I've decided to design and build a CAV dropship, but to put as much engineering realism into it as possible. But I need help on two things for sure, "What is the heaviest squad you've seen/played/think-legit?" and "What's the dimensions of the tallest, the widest, the deepest, and the overall most voluminous CAV?". Wall of text begins,hidden behind the spoiler for easy, later browsing of the thread, with one dinky semi-related pic:
  7. PROJECT...BAYOU FISHING WHARF DATA...This is the concept drawing/layout (in scale) of the next project that I intend to build. It is a bayou backwater swamp fishing wharf in the deep Cajun South where I had some great times with a buddy while on leave from the service. This will be a nostalgic diorama that I am building for my own collection...for memories! Paul (Catdancer)
  8. Purple tentacle

    Had a tentacle left over from my Radioactive Wyrm, so i painted it up. 1" base.
  9. Doctor Who little Diorama

    Heresy Miniatures Nerdlord II and Emily Lake, on a styrofoam/cork/plaster base. Scratchbuilt TARDIS (not as clean as I would've liked, but the camera is a harsh mistress). C&C welcomed and appreciated.
  10. Homemade Hunting Horror

    Time for a critter that seems a staple of the Call of Cthulhu game. Amusingly, most of the depictions, including the Grenadier and RAFM sculpts of the creature ignore the "grotesquely great clawed appendages" line. I'll keep with this tradition since I think not having limbs keeps the creature more "otherworldy". Took a coated copper wire and started wrapping newspaper around it. The wire will let me shape the critter as I want later. Used masking tape to make a skin to bind the newspaper. Measured more wire to make the wing base Drilled through the body and ran the wire through
  11. Radioactive worm

    Homemade mini number b melting its way out of a desert. Base is a 120mm oval. Not as happy with it as I wanted to be, but I want to get it done to work on other things. Haloclix Master Chief on a 1" base for scale. www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SK8nJmpAGs
  12. I didn't do a very good job on these, but they were quick to make. Trooper for scale.

  16. This is posted mainly for (Darsc Zacal)...a member who suggested that I add an open air market to my (3D) shire. I think that the idea was fantastic and I will be starting work on this shire board piece in the very near future. I just wanted to let him see my art draft concept ideas for the booths that I will be building and the board will be designed as a combination idea of a farmers market & renaissance fair...I do want to give full credit to (Darsc Zacal) for the idea...thank you!
  17. I am the (GM) for two RPG groups...I sctrachbuilt this wagon/cart as transport for the adventure group(s) during game play. This is a game playing piece.
