This is a discussion on how magic would shape life in a magic rich world.
Eberron had some good ideas like magic carpet taxi and magical street lights.
So 1st I would say
With spells like create Demi plane, you could have crops that crow all year long, are secure from bugs and raiders/ thieves, and have limited access to only those you want. Plus they don't take up valuable land that you can use to expand your city.... Plus the area is no longer limited by natural features or weather conditions. You could have tasty secure crops all year long.
Flying Cauldrons and brooms of flying. Wealthy noble children now have extreme sports involving personal conveyances. I can see drag races or just cruising around town in your pimped out flying ride...
Alter self can make your hair/clothes and even you look different. I can see shops dedicated to alteration magic.
Prestidigitation can create objects that last for an hour and can heat and season them. So you could make food that tastes good and only lasts an hour that does not provide nourishment and thus does not make you fat. Noble Bulimics would find use for this...
Anyone one have any other thing that would fit here? What is your idea for a decadent magic based society?
So this guy got finished, so that he can get to Con....
Thanks for looking!
Over a total of about 90+ minutes split over two evenings I managed to get some paint on the cat. The bird had brown liner on it so far.
I started with brown liner and worked up with stone grey and linen white.
Getting the spots to look good was a pain.
Onto the bird next! Gonna use the same set of colors I think.
So this is my first project ever posted in this forum - yay. I am so excited.
Anyway - I have to admit I am not the best miniature painter - I am far away from that. I can't understand color theory, keep forgetting important steps and in those moments where I should be patient, I can't wait and ruin everything. Haha - nevertheless I try to become better and therefore I started this project.
Some time ago I came up with the idea to create an all-female soviet infantry battalion for the Bolt Action wargame.
If you want to know more, please check out this link: Strike Witches - All-Female Soviet Infantry Platoon (Warlord Games Forum)
It soon became apparent to me that the use of infantry alone wouldn't make any sense, so I decided to get me some tanks and personnel to man them - tank riders and officers to command the vehicles.
My army itself is painted in a merely tabletop standard, but as I am always flashed by what a good painter can achieve, I want to take the chance and try to enhance my skills by reading and watching tutorials on how to improve certain aspects of my painting and as the tanks will be standing out of the masses of infantry, I want their commanders to stand out, too.
That said, I started painting the three ladies using i.e. Corporeas face painting tutorial, didn't like the outcome, stripped them (*chuckles*) of all the paint, started painting again, ruined the job once more, stripped them again, painted once more, liked the face, ruined the leather, stripped them again and so on - I guess a plastic kit would be molten by now.
After a longer time without having the ability to paint, I returned to the painting table just to figure out I had forgotten almost everybit of knowledge I aquired regarding painting. So I went back here, but unfortunately Corporeas Tutorial was not "illustrated" anymore, thanks to photobucket.
So I decided to join the forum to inspire myself how to paint and to make some steps forward in painting miniatures.
The original figure I got looked like this:
Due to some ... breast issues in the wargaming forum I was present at that time ("Well, we like to play armies who in reality commited mass murder, but - oh my good - did you attach boobs to this figure?! How dare you?!" and so on) I decided to fuel the fire - and I really like the outcome. It reminds me a bit of anime figures. Haha.
She looked like this:
But as I wrote, I then totally screwed up the paintjob like a complete idiot and now I am back to square one.
Well then ... here we go again.
I had to correct some scratches in the Greenstuff, so that should be dry by tomorrow, then I'll base coat her and will start painting. Slowly and steady. One step after the other - and we will see where this ends.
See you next time!
