Thank you, Pochi!

 

Hopefully you can come over in September or October when the stores are all packed with the Halloween stuff!  

 

 

Nope. Daughter's baby is due the first part of April. I love spring though so it'll be fine!

    I sprayed the Bone Wheel black over the weekend, and today I did the dry brushing on it.  I'm generally happy with it.  

Since it's scenery designed to have a one-time use, I didn't put a whole lot of effort into it.

I love Halloween time at the Dollar Tree!  I stopped in today and got a few more goodies!   ::D:

 

 I plan to use the skeletons on this garland for making a Bone Wheel as needed in the Thaw of the Lich Lord "Bone Wheel" scenario.

This bird skeleton will possibly be broken down into bits to make a pile of bones from some dead creature.  Though I may save that bird skull for some sort off special stone idol.   (Turns and looks at the half a plastic doll left over from the mermaid-tail arch project...:B):)   IMG_5128.JPG

 

And this pack of Zombie figures isn't either Frostgrave of Ghost Archipelago specific, but I wanted to show them just in case some you might have a use and want to go get some.   The dogs look very useful as some sort of demon dogs.  The gravestones possibly useful too, though a little big.  The figures themselves are big, but perhaps useable as zombie giants...   There are 10 of the figures, 2 dogs, and two tombstones in the bag.  IMG_5129.JPG

 

Shown with Sir Forscale.

They also have skeletal rats, visible down the end of the shelf...   And I wonder what could be done with those big skeletal hands...

Based on your post I bought two each of the garland, the rats, and the crows.  I've got bone bits for days now.  I also found a bag of skull rings.  The skulls on them are just about the right size to use as shields on 28mm figures; or I can add them to terrain as details.  50 rings to a bag, so I could equip a fairly large unit if I so desired.

 

Liking the bone wheel.  Consider the idea stolen.

Happy to be an  enabler helper!   Cool about the skull rings!   I'll have to look for those next time I go.  

 

And thanks for the Bone Wheel comment.  i'm glad you like it!  Feel free to steal any ideas. ::):

The bone wheel is pretty cool looking. 

 

 

Thanks, KruleBear!  Got to say it turned out better than even I was expecting! ::):

That Bone Wheel is another example of creative thinking!

I love it!

 

Since I'm very fond of Undead and Demonic minis, I will be keeping an eye out for cheap large plastic Halloween stuff now.

 

*** Sigh***

 

*** You Othersideoftheworlders have the best stores***

If there is anything specific you are looking for, let us know.  Some of us could provide it in a care package from the States.

Very nice!

But shipping is often more expensive than the items.

With very special things I know who to ask, these things,  I will try my luck here.

Soon the garden centre will stock up on Halloween stuff, hopefully with something useful as you guys have.

It's been a while since I poked my head in here; it's good to see that you've been keeping busy turning out great looking terrain pieces while I wasn't watching!:winkthumbs:

SPLENDID finds AND SPLENDID creatiions! The Bone Wheel reminds be of the Skeletal Carousel from one of the Mordheim books; nice as it is now, it has the potential for even greater things.

I love the Bird Skeleton. That really has uses.

Thank you, malefactus!   I'm glad you liked my creations.   I never got a chance to play Mordheim, but from what I hear, Frostgrave is very close to it in some ways.

         With our upcoming Ghost Archipelago campaign less than two months away, I thought I would start introducing the crew I plan to use, as I get the figures painted up.  
         I'll  start with are my Heritor (Reaper 77044 Turanil, Male Elf paladin) and Warden (03415 Lanura Windsong, Elf Wizard).    We decided for our initial GA test game, which we are having after our December Frostgrave campaign game, that we would roll randomly for Heritor abilities.  I got an interesting assortment, and depending on how things go during the test game, I just may keep them.  For the Wardens we choose whatever Branch and Spells we wanted.   
       
      I've had in mind wanting to use these two figures, so I decided to go with a crew of Elves.  The figures I'm using for my Heritor and Warden were already painted, so given the color scheme I had used for Warden's figure I deiced to go with a Vine Warden.
       

       
      Heritor:  Lord Hytieral Fortrywn-   Retired from a lengthy military career to enjoy his wealth and his laurels. Powerful. Landholder. Doesn’t tolerate fools.  Not happy that his younger step-sister has out-maneuvered him into taking her daughter,  his niece, along with him to act as his Warden.  She says it will be good for the girl to have experience in the world; he finds the young magic-user barely tolerable, and the fact she isn’t a true wizard is an embarrassment.  
       
      Daze- 3
      Evade-5
      Stand Firm- 5
      Surge- 5
      Disarm-5
       
      So I think the Daze is going to be interesting as the main ability.  Apparently this guy is so formidable looking as he twirls his sword around acrobatically, that enemies just kind of freeze up when they see him. The other abilities I think fall in nicely with someone who was a professional soldier.
       
       
      Warden: Marnilyne Dewdrisane-  Young. Impetuous. Curious. Argumentative. Naïve. In awe of her uncle, and a little scared of him; but also terribly excited to be a part of the adventure ahead.  
       
      Brambles
      Plant Walk
      Warp Weapon
      Summon Animal
       
      I chose Summon Animal as my out-of-school spell, as I've learned from Frostgrave that having an extra figure to command can make a real difference.  Also, I saw this Warden as being generally loving, and being connected to, all living things, plant or animal.

      About
      BASE SYSTEM ROOTS 
      When I moved from hex map to miniature rules gaming, I struggled to find any decent affordable scenery. 
      Thus I decided to make some myself. These were sold online under the name of Mechanized Designworks. I found many other people liked them. 
      This led to my decision to make an entire range accessible to the public through DFA, in the form of the BASE System. With your support DFA intends to create the largest range of affordable, high quality modular 6mm scale scenery and buildings. With your continued support, the range has scope to expand indefinitely.
      BASE System sections will be made from 3D printed design originals. Each section will be individually hand-finished before casting in resin, creating a high-quality finish suitable for your choice of model paint. 
      BASE SYSTEM CORE  
       BASE Systems are modular.  
      Example BASE System layout with stand-alone buildings There are many buildings, from stand-alone structures and themed sets, to totally modular sets that allow players to build a base as big or small as they wish. A host of new building designs and base layouts can be created by simply repositioning individual sections; while the same parts can be endlessly reconfigured to provide new vistas for each game.  
       
       
      If you're looking to build a small outpost or firebase or a big planetary command centre for your games, BASE has you covered. Best of all: because BASE System is modular, you can take it apart and redesign it when setting up your next game.  
      Infinite possibilities and configurations await with BASE.
      Example of a large BASE system layout using modular parts BASE SYSTEM VISUAL  
      BASE offers a uniform look and feel across sets in the range. 
      While each module in a set is interchangeable, it will still conform to the overall chosen appearance of your tabletop. In addition, you can make sets look entirely different, yet cohesive, with a few additional components in different paint livery.
      EVOLVING YOUR BASE SYSTEM  
      Start small and go large … or start big.  
      Example of a small BASE System layout The choice is yours. The BASE System is available in box sets and individual components. You can evolve your BASE System at your own speed by adding components or sets as and when it suits you. (To help get you started with this, you will also receive two of some buildings at specific pledge levels.)
      Fire Control and HQ buildings  
      The Repair Bay contains 2 rigs, allowing you to switch between closed and open during your games.  
      The Geodesic Dome will feature a clear resin casting,allowing you to create features inside the structure.  
      The Class A Interstellar Communications set is just the first modular BASE system we hope to produce.

      This is another of Julie Guthrie's beautiful giant werewolves, part of the Warlord Koborlas faction. This is my second Warlord figure painted. It was an attempt to make a gender-ambiguous werewolf, and as such I shaved down the chest armor a bit. Full WIP here.
       
      Aislinn may be howling or sniffing the air or fighting a giant.  Looking up at any rate.

      Okay, so I am going to be painting up this guy soon:
       

       
      I'm curious about what colors to use for the snow on the snowman. It doesn't seem to be a pure white (which makes sense) but I couldn't tell really what colors were used. I know that blues and even really dark blues, are often used for shadows (I know that Nightmare Black is actually a favorite of at least one forumite), but its the "white" that has me unsure. Any ideas? (as for the base, I realize that there are a number of options for putting snow on the base).
       
      As always, thanks in advance for any help?

      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.
