Guildy's Swamp Terrain pics (and maybe other stuffs)

Recommended Posts

Aaaand done! bit too quick, since I had a deadline, would have liked to do a few more things. I might come back to it later. Especially when I get more on my actual swamp board done. But anyway:











And this is for the start of another project I'm trying to complete in May:

OUTSTANDING WORK!LOVE the derrick thingy! Since no terrain is ever actually complete, you can always revisit it with some new twist.

Truth! and you know how it is, our beloved projects are never truly done lol


it's all I can do not to start redoing some of my older minis, now that I know more how to do them!


here's my latest WIP on my Portal terrain, the car is coming along nicely I think. First time I've really tried the chipping (traditionally hairspray) method of weathering. usually I paint over the top coat. I have to say though this looks really cool and was a lot of fun to do!






And the mockup:

Maybe I'm as clueless as a deadite, but is that some kind of movie reference with a car going through a portal? ;-)


Great idea, liking the execution.


Not actually at least not one  I know of - although buckeroo bonzai comes to mind :P


It's meant to represent the great breach between Earth and Malifaux, or maybe a smaller one anyway, since the Great one is large enough to fit a freight train (which sounds like my next project ^_^)


I wanted the car to be going through helping show the differences between the two sides - one all nice and normal, Earth; one not so nice, dark and scary aka Malifaux.


At least I have the change down now I think.

That's cool! I like the way it looks new on one side of the portal and all beat up on the other side.

Well trying to cast a portal for my Portal piece, don't think it's going well... Will check in morning but I'm pretty sure all my resin just leaked out the sides of my "mold" so I'm likely going to go with plan B. Will update when I know what that is. lol

Welp since the contest for the Portal terrain is now in judging, I can post my final pics :D









I have to admit, by this point, and four or more (it's all a blur!!) failed attempts at casting an actual Portal, I just got tired of the piece. So it's not as nice as I'd like, but it's done. I may revisit it later. Much, much later. Like when I am not feeling like throwing it through a window or something.


Anyway, so, wanted to update with my built kits as well. These are GW kits which are a lot of fun honestly. I had a slight issue with the Manufactorum (building) because I was missing a sprue and didn't realize it til I'd actually started building, without floors! I emailed GW and they very quickly shipped me a replacement, which was awesome. Especially considering I'd actually bought this thing in like December and am only now getting to it...




Of course when I picked it up, from where it was drying (washed with simple green to remove mold release) I lost a wall section so I'll need to reglue that ><




And here is the Citadel Wood, a fun kit as well! I'm not horribly looking forward to painting the leaves, but I really didn't want to pass up the chance to do an autumnal themed set. If I get another one of these, and I likely will, I'll make a dead wood for my swamp area, probably.

Quick WIP of my Skull throne thingy - actually known as GW out of print Magewrath Throne, but I like Skull thingy.  I put some 'dirt' between the stone patches and skulls. I'm envisioning it like some sort of stack of giant skulls someone set up, protruding out of the ground, with vines and decay covering it.


And I need to check my Reaper mini stash, really need to see if I have a vulture from the pet familiars - going to do some birds nests, two or three maybe, some eggs in the eye sockets. As well as probably some vegetation. Probably obscuring a good portion of the skulls in parts. Kind of want that lost in the jungle/time aztec look to it. Still working on the throne part that goes on top, as well.


Adding a larger base, with maybe some of the tower buried in "dirt" as well as some other vegetation like maybe some trees... Have to see! these things tend to grow on me... I was supposed to just paint the silly thing :P

I'm looking forward to seeing your 'skull thingy' all jungle'd up.

      It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games! 
      Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!  That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I.
      I tried to give them fur texture.  The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand.
      The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel.
      I spent WAY too much time painting these...
      Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter.  They’re rats.  A lot of them.

      C&C Welcome.

      So this started to come up in a KS discussion so I thought I would just go ahead and start the topic to discuss it.  
      I'm really not sure how I feel about it.  I'm all for fixing some balance issues and other things, but I'm worried they are going to make it too video game like and more like 4E..

      For Hobby Hangout Resolution contest and Jan/Feb Resolutionary Painting. 
      These are the Done, but not Finished images. Hence WiP and not Show Off. Ill post some other WiP images as i clean up my phone. 
      She was a serious pain to assemble. And painting assembled was also painful. Not a good combo for sanity, but an interesting figure.
