  1. I bought into the recent Oathsworn Fur and Feathers Kickstarter. The first thing up on my painting table from this is the scenery piece, a mouse house. I am imagining this is going to see use as a hobbit dwelling more frequently...
  2. Changing picture forums. And since I am enjoying the KS bones 3 alot! And backing Bones 4... Reaper is the logical choice, so i would like to share some miniature painting, some old and new, of mine her. Thx for your C&C. Big fan of the work from Tabletop world....
  3. Among the lovely surprises at Reapercon this year was this terrific new Bones piece: the DUMPSTER. I was delighted to see it blistered and available for sale; this is a piece the hobby has been begging for for years. While it's not the FIRST dumpster made available in 25mm - 28mm, it is unarguably the finest; other examples were either print-and-assemble cardboard, or the smaller plastic one released by WizKids for their HeroClix game (sadly, long out of production)... and the HeroClix model was considerably smaller, to the point of seeming somewhat out of scale. Reaper has corrected this issue with a beautiful and realistic Bones plastic model, in full 28mm scale, ready to enhance and complicate any tabletop game set in the modern day. It's big enough to hold several figures, and comes in three pieces, with an opening lid. Sculpted in mathematically exact right angles and stunning accuracy, it's a fine addition to any modern terrain; I look forward to freehanding graffiti on it before placing it behind my zombie apocalypse Circle K. NEXT: The amazing new Jersey Barriers!
  4. Nothing terribly special, I had 2 sets of these, so I figured, I'd get them done.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night. Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might! Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
  6. Now Live WarStages is THE scenery system you've been waiting for: Modular as LEGO, Epic as a Movie Set, So Flexible that you can go from Super Massive Battles to Skirmishes, even RPG, and everything in between! Coming on Kickstarter in July 2017, with great Early Bird pledges, so don't miss the launch! Watch this space for more images daily, info, and the upcoming countdown clock... https://www.ragingheroes.com/blogs/warstages-kickstarter/kscoming DON'T MISS THE LAUNCH: Sign up to our special Warstages Newsletter, and follow us on Kickstarter (make sure you enable notifications) and Facebook. go on then I'll manage the thread for this which actually looks quite impressive (although as I generally don't do scenery or terrain I won't be pledging unless something special comes up), although July looks pretty crowded already with a fair number of big projects (CMON's Game of Thrones, Petersen Games Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught 3)
  7. Reconstructed and redesigned in response to your input, Stronghold on the Borderlands has been reimagined as a MASSIVE digital, infinite fort design for 3dprinting. This Design will offer more than SIX TIMES the digital content for the SAME PRICE as our initial launch! Original resin options will also remain with many NEW add-on options.
  8. I apparently forgot to add this set, some simple wood terrain from Bones 3 I painted alongside the Giants. They were saved from a sealant malfunction as well, though the simple colors made it easy.
  9. Since I first saw miniature terrain, I have wanted to build a village for my miniatures. When I saw sappet102's Gloomholde City, I was blown away! I know I am not a sculptor and can't make that nice of a village for my minis so I went on a hunt. I came across Tabletop World and their buildings had exactly the look I wanted. As my Christmas gift, my hubs said if that is I wanted, I could place an order and pick out a few. (I want them all!) I kept to a conservative amount to see what I thought. Once I received them, I was so pleased. I have not found a single mold line. I had to fill in one tiny bubble spot on the top of the cottage chimney. My only complaint is with the cottage and Townhouse I, there is no fireplace on the inside to correspond to the chimney on the outside. I ordered the Cottage, Townhouse II, and the furniture set. There was a mistake with my order so they sent out a Townhouse I for my troubles. They are having a contest on their facebook right now where people sent in their painted models. Man, some of those are amazing. Anyway, so I am going to paint up the little cottage first. I want to paint it up and then mount it on a (probably square) board and then do a little flagstone walkway, some flowers, trees, maybe a little garden. So if anyone knows where to get tiny animals like little birds, bunnies, butterflies, etc, I'd be interested. I was taught how to make paper butterflies but I haven't tried that yet. I washed the cottage with soapy water, rinsed it and let it air dry. I then primed it with spray on primer. I will be starting with the inside as to me, that just makes good sense since I will be holding it on the outside. When I get to the outside, I want to use different colored "stones" like it is found stone rather than quarried. Kind of like this picture: Townhouse I, Townhouse II, Cootage and furniture Aerial view of furniture Front of cottage (will post more of exterior when ready to start painting the exterior.)

  10. Someone else here had picked up a wooden log cabin kit from Hobby Lobby a while ago and posted it here. I picked one up myself the other day and started to work on it. This is the one I'm talking about. As you can see from the picture, it's not too terribly expensive. This is both good and bad. I'll get to that in a few minutes. This is the basic assembly; it took me about 20 minutes only because a few of the pieces needed to be trimmed a little bit for a good fit. Unfortunately, my kit was missing 2 pieces; there are supposed to be 2 'half logs' that go on the very bottom of the structure to start things off. I thought about going back and complaining, but for the price I paid, I figured it wasn't worth the gas I'd end up using to get there. Besides, this is only a minor challenge; improvise, adapt, and overcome! I'll hide the mistake when I get to the basing part. Since this is intended for use as a gaming piece, I deviated from the instructions and assembled the roof differently so that it would be detachable to put figures inside. I added some toothpicks for extra support/strength. And that's where I am right now.
  11. This will be where I post my Frost Grave Terrain. First up will probably be an improvised fountain, made from a leftover plastic container and the water weird (77310) mini Also Dave Graffam's Tall Ruined Wall. I'll be doing that tomorrow with bristol board and going to the print shop to print some stuff in color. There's no Glue Stick so only priming and dry-fitting of the fountain
  12. Nothing too special here; just an old Grenadier rune stone/trail marker thing. I haven't based it yet as I'm not sure if i'm going to use it in a diorama or just as random scenery. i think it took about 2 hours altogether to paint.
  13. Last year I was asked to help paint some Warhammer scenery so a friend that runs a small store could start getting some games together. I've painted a number of buildings, ruins, fences, and pipes, but I think that The Garden of Morr is the nicest set I've gotten to work with, as well as the first that I got to assemble myself. It was also exciting to be able to apply what I had learned to this point and to see actual improvement. I hope that this year brings more painting and even more improvement! These are hosted on imgur, if you'd like to look at an unreasonably huge version of any image you can drag the image to your address bar and take the 'l' off of the end of the image name. I've only included one view of each unique piece so this doesn't get massive but I can add views if desired because I took a ton of pictures.
  14. I finally broke down and bought a 3d printer to play with. After a lot of reviews and investigation, and a long wait time, I finally found myself with a Prusa Mk2 from Prusa's company in Cz republic. the machine came fully assembled and even the very first print was pretty. (a very cute little treefrog) I have since printed a bunch more frogs and Adelaine the dragon (who thinks she's a wolf howling at the moon). and a lot of roadway prints from Fat dragons latest kickstarter As I said the prints are really nice even at the fastest speeds (which are not fast but such is the life of 3d printers.) a 4 inch square road section takes about 2 hours to produce and the machine will handle up to 4 sections at a time on the available bed space. I am including this here so I don't forget and I will put pictures up when I get done with work. My only previous experience with a printer has been a small m3D which was much more finicky and had a real problem with size limitations and I guess I expected the worst, but this has done a great job
  15. 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
  16. >>Frame-Werx<< offer files for Laser-Cutting or 3D-Printing. Out of these files it is possible to make buildings with roof or not. For Fantasy, modern or SciFi games. 3" SUARE BASED GAMES: or OPEN TABLETOP GAMES: As an addon are also incl. files to make buildings for smaller grid games such as: Arcadia Quest, Masmorra, Super Dungeon Explore and others. I find this interesting, but I'm not sure how much it will cost to get these printed or laser-cutted, so I need to find out about it in my area where I live.
  17. I was totally impressed by the Impudent Mortal Kickstarter, but seeing as the buildings on offer didn't appeal as much as older stock they had I ordered directly (and boy was it FAST). Because I wanted to get an idea of what I was doing before I tried building my fancy new things, I took advantage of a FLGS gift card to buy a Knight Models SWAT truck for the Batman game. Here are some product pics behind the spoiler The truck/van is mostly done except for touch-ups and sealing... but I'll still be posting process pics that I took along the way. I mistakenly thought it would be faster than a miniature (and I guess it was at my current pace)... but not really. The other ones I'll be posting as I go (I'm planning on using fancy Japanese paper offcuts as wallpaper, so it'll probably be slow).
  18. Hey guys been away for a long while doing this amazing diorama! Dragons don't share 2! What an awesome time I had doing this the scenery is beautiful the dragon is majestic! I also decided to switch out the team in the box for a group of treasure seeking wizards and sorcerers. As always comments are wanted and appreciated!!! I Have taken many pics to capture every aspect of the model!
  19. Alright, tonight is my first proper large game of CAV - Two buddies and I are playing tournament-style, "pick-your-force," that is to say I've built three, 6000 point forces (Adon, Templar, Malvernis) all with distinct playing styles. BUT ALSO we are fighting it out on a 6x4 sci-fi city! I haven't made any major changes since the last time I posted pics of about 1/3 of this thing, so the roads are still unmarked, but honestly I just want to get playing. Battle report to follow (probably), but pictures NOW!!!
  20. Has anyone noticed that those brown plastic inserts in chocolate boxes, when flipped upside down, look a lot like industrial storage tanks and bunkers?
  21. Hello! This is my first post, and I am a complete noob at painting and miniatures. My friends have finally got me started on Pathfinder after trying for awhile, and I decided I needed to paint my own figure. It's kind of snowballing and I'm getting into other stuff. Anyway, I wanted to try painting a building, and I love new technology. So I decided to try a 3D printed building to help bring more flavor to the game. I started with a test build from the company Via Ludibunda, and wasn't impressed with the scale or the paintability from the hub I chose. I now have the Winterdale 2 Tavern from printablescenery.com. Their photo they use to sell it is thus: It looks nice. But obviously it was done with a more realistic bent to work with WWII wargaming. I tend to focus more on the fantasy aspect, and have decided to go in the style of Final Fantasy IX buildings. Like this: I got the model yesterday from Emeraldcitymaker.com(An on demand 3D printing company), and it turns out I'm missing a piece. The straw roof over the stable wasn't included with the packet I bought from printablescenery and am waiting for them to send it. In the meantime, I started with planning out the inside. This is the model put together with my Anirion figure. The yellow building on the right is the demo building I printed and painted from Via Ludibunda. I learned a lot doing it. PLA plastic soaks up paint like nobodys business. I had to do almost 5 coats of yellow to make the yellow stick. You absolutely do not want to put a light coating over a dark one, or you'll be painting for DAYS. Also, the size of the model is probably 25mm instead of 28mm, which means the figures look too large in it. The inside of the Tavern is the right size for the accessories I bought. So I figured I could go ahead and paint it and bring it to one of my friends' pathfinder nights later in the next couple weeks. ...Which brings us to the current state. I love the red shingles, but I'm afraid to add a wash now because I don't want to darken the bright red color. I dislike the work I did on the flagstone bottom. I followed that excellent flagstone styrofoam guide on this site, but the principals of PLA 3D print worked against me. Because a 3D printed object is done in layers, those layers are present on the model. Whenever you do a wash, the wash goes inbetween the layers and sticks out. This model is printed in such a way to minimize the effect, but when I tried to wash the stones they just soaked it up and made the ridges more visible. Hints and tricks are greatly appreciated. I was hoping someone could help me "fix" the stones to make them a little less "standoutish." I was thinking of just doing a black wash with MSP black to tone down the brighter colors a bit, but am worried about the ridges showing up again. I have been kind of hurrying with it too because I wanted to get it game ready in case they decided to do game night soon. Any other general tips would be appreciated too.
  22. This week, I've been working on some of my CAV vehicles from the Kickstarter, and I was thinking about a box of leftover Mechwarrior clicky base stuff I had, and the idea came to me to make a destroyed mech or two to use as scenery on the tabletop. I wanted it to look like it had sat on a long-forgotten battlefield for decades or centuries. I began by slicing the mech from its clicky base, and then I used a pair of pliers to rip the arms and head off. I then used a drill to make a big hole in the torso to look like where a missile had hit, knocking out the mech. I also used the drill to enlarge some of the holes where the arms and head had been connected. I used my hobby knife to pry open the cockpit, and then cut down a 10mm Warmaster skeleton figure and glued it into the cockpit to represent the mech's long-deceased pilot. Next, I cut some small sections of thin wire and glued them in the holes with superglue to look like cables that had been ripped apart when the mech was destroyed. I glued the parts with hot glue to a 3-inch plastic base that I had beveled the edge of with a hobby knife; and then covered the base with Tacky glue and applied a coating of sand. I sprayed it flat black, and then painted it with a series of browns and oranges to give it a rusted look. I painted the ground cover and added some static grass to finish it off. And here's the finished piece, shown with some 10mm Dropzone Commander infantry and a tank for scale. For the full build write-up and more photos, please see my blog: One More Gaming Project
  23. Not much to show off, but I have some completed scenery bits to use as treasure tokens in Frostgrave. A chest surrounded by treasure: And some sacks! Are they filled with gold? Potions? Magic scrolls? Brewer's yeast? Delicious potatoes? Only one way to find out!
  24. So, I have shots of this in my Silverhex scenery thread, but it's kind of become its own beast. I've never worked with foam board before, but loved what I was seeing done on this forum and figured I could try my hand at it. In the first encounter of the Silverhex Chronicles, there are two mausoleums (in addition to graves and such). I figured those could be my first two foam board efforts. At this point, I have the first mausoleum put together and am now working on painting and then a roof. Figured I'd include some of the WIP shots that got me to this point. For the second, I have the walls cut out and the piece I'll be using to make a dome. I'll be showing those later once I actually have something worth showing. Hope you enjoy my first foray into foam! Comments, critiques, and compliments are always welcome :=)
  25. This will (hopefully) be used as the beginning of a terrain collection that I'm going to be working on for skirmish games, such as Frostgrave. I made it from a 10/15mm watchtower that I've had around for ages. I'm sorry, but I don't remember who made it. I filed the top flat to serve as a base for the statue which is an old Mage Knight piece, which is itself a copy of an even older Ral Partha figure. The paint/quality of the figure itself wasn't worth trying to save, but it was decent enough to make a statue, so here it is.
