After looking back, we have realized that the theme we have selected is a mighty bit to specific so we thought we would expand on it a bit. Submissions may include any character that you might find in a tavern, (Fantasy miniatures only) . We have also decided to allow the submissions to be posted here under this thread. Keep in mind that submissions will still be excepted via email or facebook. If you have any suggestions on how we can broaden the scope of this competition let your voices be heard,

 

Thank you much,

Rocket Propelled Games

Nearing the end , only 5 days left to submit you entry for the mini painting contest before round 2 starts up. For clarification you may paint a mini other than a gnome wizard as long as it is a character you would expect to see in the tavern from the description in the newsletter. If you are not already subscribed to our newsletter , please send us an email at rocketpropelledgames@yahoo.com

 

Issue 1 is shown above, issue 2 is scheduled for release by the end of the week. Issue 2 will be much longer with a lot more content ranging from painting tips for beginners, New items and creatures for roll playing games, as well as encounters, and information about what we are working on. Hope to see lots more great submissions.

Here is my Evil Gnome.

 

I've converted his knife to a spanner with hand guard/hilt.

 

My photography is not good. I have a yellow light and a blue light and can't seem to get anything close to neutral. I think I'm going to get a light box and see what happens.

 

Hope you like the mini.

      As I said on my Saproling's topic, I had today off, so...  I decided that in addition to the saprolings, I'd knock out some tabletop quality ghouls. They were already assembled and primed, so the first thing was to paint the undead flesh. I used Vampire Shadow for their sickly skin. It didn't quite match the ghoul I'd painted before, but it was close enough. I sadly didn't always take good notes...

      After that I decided that as these were primarily going to be gaming ghouls, and not for a unified force for Kings of War, they'd each get their own clothing color: Red, Green, Blue, Tan, and Dark Brown. I used Rusty Red, Muddy Olive, Rich Indigo, Desert Stone, and Ruddy Flesh. The eyes were all painted with Walnut Brown, as were the spikes sticking out of them. 


      Then I washed them all with a mix of 4 parts sepia wash and 1 part black wash. 

      A little bit of highlighting with the base clothing color, then it was time to paint the bases black, and then flock them! Oh, and a bit of watered down rusty red around the mouth.

       
      Oh, and aged pewter on the spikes and the cleaver. 
       

      Looking good for such quick work.

        This project aims to expand the Ulvheim ruin into a full featured ruin city for your home 3D printer. You can already download the first two releases from thingiverse for free. There is also an earlier release with smaller houses, also available for free. Click the image to see them.
      Previous Ulvheim releases The pledge rewards are STL-file downloads. I will share the files with Dropbox and the download will be available for years. If you have access to a 3D printer you can print as many copies of the models as you like. You can also vary the scale for more variety. Any type of 3D printer works but FDM is the most economical. Most models will fit inside a 120x120mm print bed. Printed parts can then be painted.
      The separate pieces fit together using a clip, also printed. This way you can build several different configurations with the same printed parts. You can of course glue it together if you need extra stability.
      Clip system I have been making 3D printable terrain since 2016. I have done one kickstarter before. All files from that kickstarter are available in my store. But read on to the pledges before you buy anything there. I also have a Patreon page and all models done for that is released for free on thingiverse. This includes the previous three Ulvheim releases.
         
      As base goal, I will create these expansions that are compatible with earlier Ulvheim ruins (type B).
      Base goal 1 - Roof set
      This set gives you the ability to create roofs on your buildings. Not everything has to be ruined. You can with these models build complete buildings, from the smallest shed to the largest castle. The roofs will build up like stairs. There will of course be options for half ruined roofs.
      The roofs will be made to fit the Ulvheim A buildings. This is the smaller complete buildings.
      The images below is only very rough sketches showing what is possible. The base goal does not include roofs for L-shaped or T-shaped building. Nor is it possible to put roofs on the hexagonal tower etc.
      Whole modular roofs Modular roof ruin Base goal 2 - More wall variations
      Nothing beats variation and more options. Two new basic walls with lots of ruined options. One solid style and one arc style. Below are some sketches of possible layouts. The final layout is not decided yet.
      Solid wall sketches Arc walls sketches Base goal 3 - Corners for round towers
      Three new types of corners. With these you can build hexagonal, octagonal and decagonal towers (6, 8 and 10 sides). You will be able to build really high towers. There will be ruined options.
      The base goals does not include floors or roofs for these.
      Hexagonal and octagonal towers Base goal 4 - Horizontal ruins
      The solid walls are made into ruins where the cuts go more horizontal. So you can build a long jagged ruin wall. There will be a couple of variants, from the available solid walls. there will be transitions from whole walls.
      3 solid walls made into horizontal ruins These are the pledge levels.
      Ulvheim supporter
      If you just want to cheer me on. I will send you a bunch (5) of Terrain4Print stickers. I will also create a unique sticker for this kickstarter and send you a bunch (5).
      Ulvheim worker
      If you are on a limited budget and only want a limited selection, this is for you. You will get the base goals and about one third of the unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim settler
      This is the complete Ulvheim download at a reduces price for the first backers. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      There is a limited number of these so be quick.
      As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.
      Ulvheim burgher
      This is the complete Ulvheim download. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim necromancer
      This the complete Ulvheim download plus all my old premium files (from the shop). You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. As soon as the kickstarter payments are processed you will get a download link the the premium files. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim architect
      If you want me to create something custom from your specification, this is for you. Together we will work out the details. It can't be something huge or overly complicated but expect a handful of models. For instance, wall tiles with a special symbols. A couple of special statues or gargoyles.
      The files must match the general Ulvheim theme.
      I prefer to make these models available to Settlers, Burghers and Necromancers too. But if it is something special you want exclusively, it can be arranged.
      If you take this pledge, contact me and describe what you have in mind. This way we can agree on a reasonable level.
      As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.
      Add on: Stickers
      I will create a unique set of stickers for Ulvheim. Supporters, Settlers and Architects will get them for free.
      Workers, Burghers and Necromancers have to add $10 to have them. Simply add $10 to your pledge. I will sort it out manually after the project is done. You will get 5 Terrain4Print stickers and 5 Ulvheim kickstarter stickers.
      There are lots of more stuff to make for this. This project will have stretch goals. The more pledges that come in, the more stuff will be made. The first three stretch goals are decided already. When they are unlocked, there will be more made available if there is enough interest.
      Since I reside in Sweden and use SEK (Swedish crowns) I present stretch goal as % instead.
      Stetch goal 1 - Battlements 133% (20k SEK)
      If you want to make a castle type building, playing siege scenarios. This will make it possible. It is basically a low wall with a strip of floor and battlement fitting around both convex and concave corners. The sketch below shows a corner piece for a convex corner. There will of course also be ruined battlements.
      Stairs made will fit against the battlements.
      Battlement sketch Stetch goal 2 - Windows 167% (also for workers)  (25k SEK)
      Two new walls with smaller openings, like windows. This is a sketch of one of them. It will print in two parts, without support. It has a big arc. Inside it a thinner wall with two smaller arcs. The inside of the smaller arcs is open to make windows.
      Windowed wall Stretch goal 3 - Rubble piles 200% (30k SEK)
      Eight piles of rubble, big and small. Stones in various format, pieces of wood, broken statues etc. There will be round piles and also piles with one or two flat sides to fit against walls and corners.
      Two piles of rubble Possible stretch goals
      If the three stretch goals above are unlocked, we will have a vote on the next.
      Big set of stairs more elegant Floor set with wooden planks instead of stone Pillars Walls with door openings Relief walls Small balcony (from single wall) Big modular balcony Interior balcony Wall fountain Wall statue Wall with big gate Modular foundation to put everything on Cemetary set with walls, gate, tombstones and mausoleums Risks and challenges
      I have been creating 3D terrain for quite some time, including a previous successful Kickstarter as well as my many Patreon projects. I feel I have always delivered what I promise (and have often over delivered), however this is not my full-time job and so there exists the possibility that full delivery might take some time if all the stretch goals are unlocked. My aim is that the models will be delivered as soon as they are ready - so base goals should be on time with any of the work-in-progress stretch goals being released piecemeal upon their completion. 
      Personal/work commitments are the only real challenge, but I have a very caring family that fully supports me and understands my passion for producing my 3D creations.

      Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left....

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description
       
      Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy.
      I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all.
      Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so
      Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun.
      I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues.
      £10 Road Builder
      £30 Asteroid Miner
      £40 Planet Settler

      Last year @Pochi painted me a barbarian as an exchange fig. (located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80953-spring-exchange-brand-oathblood/&tab=comments#comment-1717270).
      More specifically she painted me a barbarian inspired by the song Holy Diver by Dio (I tend to put odd things for inspiration in me exchange forms).
      I liked him so much that I based my current 5th Ed. character off of the fig.  Now Pochi's fig is far too precious (my precious!!) to go on the gaming table, so I've been using a bare Bones version with the intent of painting him "any day now".
      Now that we've hit 7th level, I'm actually getting around to paint something.  But, since I need him for the weekly game, I'm painting an alternate version first, then I'll swap figs and work on the Brand Oathblood version.
      So I'm starting with 77373: Cuth Wolfson, Barbarian.

      This will depict Dio wielding his mighty great axe, Eloise.
      Now Cuth's default axe was a touch....limp, so I dug out the Bones III weapons pack and picked a nice stiff replacement.
       

       
      Much better.  Now just a little putty to fill in the gap and he'll be ready for his bath before linering.
