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

Very cool!


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

        Mostly Reaper this week, but here is the odd man out...

      P.S. Look! There they are... what did I tell you?

      Here's a big batch of miniatures, no common theme, that I finished recently.

      The "Eyedra" assembled as the more generic Hydra option, from "Dark Platypus Games".  Thanks to the Reaper Box of Goodwill for this one.

      A Ral Partha "Dwarf Thief", more suited as a Gnome to modern scale, also acquired from the Box of Goodwill.

      To celebrate their return to 5E in "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes", a Giff, 3D printed from designs from the wonderful DM Workshop.

      A Goblin Monk.  I believe he's originally an Orcling from Foundry/Warmonger.

      Another Goblin, perhaps an Alchemist.  A Warhammer Snotling.

      A Dire Pillbug, originally intended as a Myconid Mount, from "Ganesha Games", in their "Fightin' Fungi" range.

      Also of note is the backdrop, which are my in progress 3D printed Caverns set from "Printable Scenery"

      I've never been much of a fan of GW.  I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
      And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
      But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
      So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre.  Took a look around and caught sight of this:

      Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction.  Or whatever the different groups are called.
      I thought, "Those are pretty cool!  Flying stuff.  Steampunky.  I like."
      Then we left.  And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
      Then we met back up on Monday.  And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships.  So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
      So, this is what they look like when you open the box:

      Oye! Lots of bits.  Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive).  Options that presumably follow rules.  Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. 
      But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
      So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

      Hi Guys,
      I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly.
      If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes.
      If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

      Been working on this project for some time now, and hoping to get it done for a local competition in september.
      Still a lot to do, but I'm mostly happy with what I have made so far..
      I bought a bits-box with loads of Wahammer bits, and decided to try and sculpt a bigger tyranid out those bits, as a maine character for the scene. I find the sculpting as fun as the painting..and well, the Warhammer stuff seems rather expensive.
      I know nothing of the Warhammer 40K world, so it also been fun reading and researching for stuff.
      This will be a scene in the Wahmmaer 40K world. Three tau XV25's and one drone (not pictured) are behind enemy lines, and attack some sort of Tyranid base..
      First two pictures a finished minis, A Tau XV25 (its a battle-suit with a 'tau-person' inside), and a small tyranid.
      Next is the big tyranid, grey stuff is from the bits box, light-brown is Fimo sculpting clay and green is green-stuff. It is mostly done, but need a bit of grinding a maybe a few more details. The tail is going to end into next picture, where the tau is in big trouble (or is he?). The tau is painted, but the tail is just sculpted and a few strokes of priming.
      The part where the tail is shot to pieces is made of small pieces of fishing line, white-glue and sculpting paste. I glued the fishing line more or less randomly in place with super-glue-gel, super glue to hold the two pieces of tail in place. Covered everything with water thinned white-glue. put on some blobs af sculpting paste and covered everything in water-thinned white glue again.
      Last pictures is the base, mostly just primed. The tau's are attacking from the left side of the first picture, and the small tyranid will be lurking in the cave.
      Feel free to suggest, critiq and comment on anything, thanks for looking.
