A sign warning to others ... clipped on or standing near by would be a nice addition ...

Just a thought, but I've found that the Warhammer Fantasy "Flagellants" sprues are a great source for posted bills and more macabre warnings for pirates, if you can get hold of any leftovers.  (The figures themselves are a bit over the top -- one guy has a burning brazier bolted onto his head, for instance -- but there are parts for a figure in stocks, assorted short chains, scrolls tacked to boards, and -- as with just about any Games Workshop product -- of course there are SKULLZ.)

That's a great idea!   And yes, I have some of those Flagelent bits, as I got them to make scrolls, spell books, etc for Forstgrave Treasure tokens.  You're right about hw useful they are, and they would be perfect for this.  I need to think about it; as while I think it would be great for pirates and other ne'er-do-wells, I'm not sure it would look right if I wanted them to be used for general evil wizard captives, cultist victims, etc.... unless of course it's the posted torturing schedule! ::P:

If the sign is clip on / removable or on it own post you can use different signs for different themes and get multi use out of the hanging cages ...

Dang it; stop improving on a great idea! Now I’ll have to do it.  :lol:

 

    It wouldn’t be hard at all to make it work with a little bit of magnet... maybe inbed a small magnet in one of the posts, then use small steel bases or a bit of magnetic sheeting to make the signs!  I’ve done that with signs on stores before.

First off, thank you for a wonderful thread, Chris.  This is fan-broccoling-tastic.  I'm thinking about talking to my group about the potential for Frostgrave or Ghost Archipelago and I'm sure this thread will be the source of much copying inspiration if they go for it.

Give me three or four of those brazier heads, and put I'll them under a huge cauldron or use them on some sort of column/post lighting the way to an altar.  I can hear them howling things that even the old gods would rather not be whispered.

strawhat-

    I'm glad you enjoyed the thread!   I can't recommend Frosgrave nd Ghost Archipelago enough; they are really fun games.  If you haven't already done so, be sure to check out our campaign thread for even more inspiration ::)::

      Managed to do more painting today. The assassin is by North Star. I was aiming for a lighter palette, rather than a ninja. I think I need to go back in and highlight more. 
      The knight is mainly fireforge, templar body, cloak, and scandi infantry head. The arms are from the Oathmark elves set though. 
       
      They are just based on 25mm washers and will add some texture, foam rocks, and snow effects to both bases once grey base coat has dried. It takes ages to get a consistent coat on the washers  and that and the hole in the middle are the only downsides to using them.

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      I made these primitive runestones in Blender and printed them on my little 3d printer. I thought the first one was a bit boring, so I added a bunch of skulls around the base of the second for that cannibal-headhunter vibe.

      They're on Thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3010064

      The miniature is from Reaper, the figure I use to represent my oldest (surviving) D&D character from back in 1981, Smirnoff the Huge and Ugly. There was one earlier character from my very first roleplaying session, but I don't even remember his name — he was blown to smithereens in that same session by being too close to an overly-curious halfling thief.

      Here's a figure that I painted in the last week: Liela, the sorceress for the Darkreach dark elves, from Warlord's Savage North.
       
      Besides my usual palette for dark elves -- Volcano Brown skin, Deep Amethyst metals, Brown Liner ("black") leather and cloth -- I also used Surf Aqua and Sky Blue to get some icy tones. Her eyes are a softer pink than the orange or red that I've used on other dark elves. Her staff is in bone colors, with some scribbled painted-on texture.
       
      For the snow, I used the same technique that I made up for the dwarven King Axehelm figure: Deep Amethyst, Sky Blue, and Pure White for the snow, and simulations of reflected light on the undersides of some objects using Sky Blue and Pure White.
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek
