I'm using realistic water and cotton ball to create more flames. I'll cover everything up on the diorama with some painters tape and probably cling plastic to be able to do some air-brushing and get into the areas I can't with my brush. It's looking pretty good so far, I hope that I can get it to look how I want here.

Yes! Your brain HAS THE POWER!!!!!

Sorry ub3r,::(:

 

Having to paint the lighting effects will only improve the piece when it is judged.

 

Saying that, looking back at the WIP couldn't you carve the tea light out from the bottom.  It looked like is was almost through the piece of foam, say less than 3/8"....

 

Good Luck

Thanks, I’m certainly going to try!

 

At this point, no. The way I have it placed/attached into the foam wouldn’t allow for me to remove/replace without possible major issues with breakage.

Started working on the Keeper!

I added more water effects and cotton to the base, which will take a day or so to cure. I'll get back to the base tomorrow or the next day. Need to worry about getting the 5 figures painted up by the end of the weekend (my goal)!

I'm REALLY out of practice with these 28-32mm figures... been painting a lot of bigger figures and busts lately, feel like a newbie trying to get the details on the these now, Tre's figures are especially small and full of minuscule details. :wacko:

Can we get a side angle of the flames? From top down it looks very dark but of course, we are seeing the darkest part when we look from the top.

 

The pillars look so good! The doors and walls look worn and gritty. The smoke stains from the torches and the OSL look nice. I am not convinced by the red splotch on the floor though. It looks too...monotone or something. However, I think you would lose the effect if you darkened it. Plus, once you get the figures in the scene, I don't think it will draw the eye as much as it does now.

 

Can't wait to see how it looks with everyone in there!

The red mark on the floor is more for show, it’s a re-occurring stain. 

 

Mock up with OSL on underside of the Frog Demon.

You did the third rune incorrectly. The way it's set up, you're actually going to summon a slightly constipated yamtaur.

What in the heck is a yamtaur? Will you draw us a picture?

Half horse, half yam. I thought that was obvious. ::P:

It could have been an unholy man-yam combo, not unlike Pickle Rick. 

 

Still waiting on a drawing of a spudly equine.

This requires a better artist than I am.

      I bought the Golden crackle paste medium instead of going out to buy the GW crackle paint... but so far no crackles in my test swatches. I'm hoping some people here have tried Golden before and have any tips. Do I need a base coat? Glue on the bottom? Thicker layers? Does it need the full 3 days to dry & cure even for small terrain pieces?
       
      I'm hoping to be able to just use what I already have, but I might be able to buy some Agrellan earth this weekend if the Golden doesn't work. Or if there are any good crackle paints for a dry desert texture I could find at Joann's or Michael's or Blick.
       
      Thanks! :)

      For my Broken Gods D&D game, I've painted up all the figures for my group and am now getting around to painting up their mounts and animal companions. 
       
      First off we have Bagheera, the Panther based off artwork in the spoiler. Bagheera is the animal companion of the party's monk/ranger and normally it is a standard medium-sized panther that he can use to fight along side him, but the panther can grow into this large mount when needed.
       
      Next is the Golden Lion, the mount of the party's bard, based on the artwork below:
       
      Next is the Nightmare for the party's warlock, based on the artwork below:
       
      I painted up the standard medium sized panther to use when it is needed. The monk/ranger also gained a (perhaps) temporary follower in "Jim the Brown Bear" which I also decided to paint up for this adventure and future adventures as a companion or just standard bear.
       
      All of these are painted up tabletop to tabletop+ standards. I didn't want to put too much work into them as they are just meant to be on the tabletop and not to be put into any contests.
       

       
      Larger panther and the lion are the lioness and lion from Bones 3. The smaller panther and the brown bear are bones animal companions. The Nightmare is from one of Tre's kickstarters. It has a barbarian that goes on the saddles, which of course I omitted here and I'll either toss the barbarian in the BOGW or put him in the melt bin at ReaperCon now that he's not really needed and I covered the hole in the saddle where he would normally attach.
       
      There's one missing mount, a silver and black fox that I may also paint up for the 4th member of the group. She paints minis too, so I'm thinking I'll give her a wolf figure that looks very foxlike to have her do it herself especially since I have so many other projects I need to finish up on this month.
       
      Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and appreciated!
       
      EDIT!!
       
      Adding more pics of the figures in more close-up shots for each one.

      Decided to have some fun today as I was digging thru my figures pulling out stuff I am going to put in the BOGW. I ran across the hydra and remembered that next weekend I planned on throwing my d&d players up against one. 
       
      3-4 hours later I have a painted up hydra on a scenic base from secret weapon miniatures. Added some water effects for a tiny swampy pond beneath it. 
       
      I’d love to hear your C&C!

      Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.
       
      First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

      I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 
       
      After I'm done with these three:
      I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe) Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn

      So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.
