If you read the blog you already seen this guy. I thought I'd start a thread to post about him here too.

 

I'm not sure if I'm making too many threads or is the forum a little on the idle side? Mods? Should I make one megathread or is this better?

 

Working with a reference image I've taken myself.

He's off to a great start.

 

I have only a few WIP threads, one main one and then ones for special projects, mostly because my WIP posts are as much for my benefit as they are for others as all my notes and color guides are included. So I don't want to have to look through 500 threads to find out what colors I used on something.

 

I don't think the mods really care about how many you make, you're about the only person keeping this board busy.

Thanks. I guess I'll continue as I have so far. There are some other posters that frequent here now and again. Maybe I'll help spark more interest. :D

What's the hot water technique?

 

I found that when it's cold the freshly mixed putty is hard and not sticky so I heated it up a bit on the side of a cup of tea (it left a residue). It seemed that hot temperature causes the Green Stuff to flow more freely, become more sticky, have less surface tension as well as cure faster. What I've done the last couple of sessions is have a cup of hot water to dip my tools in when I need to blend the edges between two masses of putty. Afterwards I just smooth the surface out and I don't have to toil away for ages on disappearing the seam lines.

 

Also, it's conceivable that once you want your putty to set you can dunk it in a cup of hot water and it'll serve the same purpose as one of those lamp oven things.

 

What do you think? I haven't come across any adverse effects yet but I haven't been doing it long.

Heh. He's got a BACKPACK! It's one of those things that so often appears on the character sheet but is never represented on the PC model. :D I really like the jacket and that knee pad. This is another mini I'm sure I could find a use for.

 

Thanks for the tip on the green stuff! I've noticed that green stuff gets harder when it gets COLD, but I hadn't come up with a suitable solution other than "let it thaw out." I suppose I really should have extrapolated from the method for heating up Instant Mold, but for some reason I just hadn't made that connection. I'll have to try that.

 

P.S. -- I actually like seeing progress in separate threads.

It's better than putting the greenstuff on a lightbulb. 'Burned myself once that way.

Sounds dangerous.

Cool! Thanks for the good feedback. I haven't considered that backpacks were unusual. He needs somewhere to store all the extra gear for doing shadowruns or solving dark conspiracies ;)

 

I think that's it:

I'll welcome ideas for another one if anyone has any.

      PuzzleLock is 3d printable terrain for creating dimensional maps for your RPG games. The tiles connect together on the tabletop like a jigsaw puzzle! I have already created and tested PuzzleLock Caves and PuzzleLock Dungeons, now I am running a Kickstarter to raise funds to create additional playsets.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zandoria/puzzlelock-playsets
      We are 298% funded in our second week! I hope that you will check it out!

      My first show off thread! Not because I am prouder of these than anything else, more that these were close to hand when I considered taking photos and keeping more of a visual record of my mini painting adventures.
       
      OH's dad and partner got me these, amongst other, Otherworld Miniatures for Christmas and I thought these were really fun sculpts! I did these in one evening (and maybe another half hour the next day), and I'm happy with their table-top level quality. I used aquarium plant on the bases and I'm thinking I may go back and paint over that as it is quite bold- but for now I consider these done! 
       
      Unfortunately I can't foresee these swamp-dwellers making an appearance in my City dwelling d&d campaign, but you never know!

      I started a D&D campaign for my son and some of his friends, and using it as an excuse to acquire and paint some new minis. Here is my son's Tiefling sorcerer (sorceress?)The plan: We don't really like the "combat bikini" on this one, so I am going to attempt to add, well something to it. It won't be great, probably wont even look good, but hey I'm only trying to get better, so please comment, critique, advise, instruct, and what not.
      Going with a light purple skin because its for a Tiefling character, and I think purple is an interesting color to paint. Turquoise colored garments as a complimentary color, and some yellow gold metal for some contrast.

      And some color after the nip tuck. I went with blue for a base cause I'm guessing it will work better with the purple skin.
      We decided to chop the staff and try for a glass orb for the arcane focus. Any recommendations are appreciated.

      Finally to end the night with some Green stuff. I started with a "sheet" of it for the Front and Back panels. I'm going to try to add some detail tomorrow after this dries.
      Overall I don't think the cloth is laying quite right, or the size is off. Either way I hope I can fix it in the next session.

      About this project
      I've been making miniatures for about three years now, during that time I've made sculpts for various miniature companies as a freelancer sculptor. Now I've decide do to take the plunge and produce some of my own miniatures. That aspiration led me to Kickstarter.
       
      I've been busy sculpting the range of undead miniatures presented here over the last few months. They're predominantly 28mm sculpts, the Undead Heroes are larger at 32mm scale, to fit their powerful status. I consciously made them an eclectic bunch, including animals. My vision of the undead force is a terrifying mix of all forms of life, bent to the will of their masters. 
       
      During the course of this campaign, I'll continue to sculpt miniatures to add to the range. I have a Facebook Group - March of the Dead, where I'm working on suggestions offered by the groups members. The more popular ones will be joining the miniatures here.
       
      The objectives of this project are to firstly see the miniatures produced in white metal by Macrocosm Miniatures and in your possession In a timely manner. 
       
      If things go really well, then hopefully I can also get a shiny website made, so I can continue producing miniatures and offer them online.
       
      Anyway. I think that covers the background. Time to show you the miniatures on offer.....
       
      To select multiple rewards, pick one of your choices, then amend the total to include the grand total. I'll then collect the details of your order with the Pledge Manager.
