I'm new here, though I have been a lurker for many years at this point. I used to be quite into painting and sculpting miniatures but took a break when I went to college and I want to get back into it. I've backed bones 4 so I figured I should start warming up for it!
So, after a four year break here is what I'm working on:
Any feedback or critique would be wonderful!
There are many companies who make flocking materials, but not many in North America who cater to a gaming audience. My goal is to allow for a varied range of colors that accommodate specific types of terrain, and that complement the environment where your game takes place. Huge Miniatures is the culmination of 6 months of experimentation, in an attempt to make the highest quality of scenic flock and basing materials.
I've figured out an efficient method for creating realistic foliage, with a range of colors and blends that allows itself to bring your miniatures, role playing campaign or battlefield to life. I'm pleased to share my ideas with you and I hope you can find a place on your table for exciting new terrain!
A bunch of foam ready to be dyed Some of the colors I've experimented with
I wanted to create a more realistic looking foliage without using sawdust, which in my opinion just looks like dyed sawdust. I've experimented with different varieties of foam, and methods of shaping it to resemble foliage. Using foam also allows for the creation of blends containing multiple colors that all stand out and complement each other. After months, I've come across a process that I'm incredibly pleased with.
I chose a set of colors that can find use in historic, fantasy, and sci-fi environments. Both the loose foliage and 2mm static grass can find use when basing miniatures, and building terrain.
Great for grass, tufts, trees, bushes, shrubs, weeds, ground cover, and more!
Need to work on my basing. Still, I don't think this little Hasslefree piece came out TOO badly.
Cavewoman stock Hasslefree, from the recent kickstarter; dinosaur, a slightly altered plastic dino I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby; Reaper base; GF9 static grass, with flowers scavenged from a Box Of Goodwill. The tree was the hard part; I needed a prehistoric looking giant conifer, so I started with a metal rod, coated with greenstuff, and began sculpting up, layer by later, with no small effort... I'm a far worse sculptor than even I think I am... and finally, after completion, I layer painted it with a variety of browns...
...and then threw it in the trash and substituted a pine sprout from the yard instead. Sometimes the old ways are the best.
