Question the 15th of March:  I am currently writing an RPG adventure with some "old-school" flare, and would be curious to ask the forum about their favourite old-school fantasy tropes/cliches are (i.e. characters, monsters, quests, monsters, etc...).

You mentioned the number 3 ...make sure there are always threes. Three clues, three trolls, Three Hearts and Three Lions, three BBGs, Three Doors.

~~~~~~~

Taverns and inns with pictorial signage that makes some kind of a subtle pun.  

 

You could have two rival taverns The Three Hearts -or- The Three Lions in a town on opposite sides of a square. A minor conflict that could embroil or distract the PCs. The situation is called Three Hearts and Three Lions Which is also a book title listed as source material in the Old DMG. 

~~~~~~~

Sky Galleons, Dragonships, Flying Frigates = spelljammers by other names.

So far .. not so much. Although there is that 'I took bits of several miniatures and chopped hell out of them to make one' that I am ... well, technically, still working on, because Things Went Wrong.

Don't think I have a picture of him handy, though.

 

Other than that, I've modified several breastplates to no longer be boob-cups, turned a whole sword into a hot pepper, and built a couple of tower shields for characters that needed them.

I'd say that it was sculpting flames on the skeletal hand contraption of Thora, Necromancer. Never even touched Green Stuff before, but I think I did a great job with it. ::):

Yes, frequently. Here's three of my favorites, ork deff dumpster, and football trolls. The dumpster is a bones dumpster with a bunch of ork bits and  some scratch built pieces. The trolls are a mix of bones, dreadball, 40k and a bunch of putty.

Nope, never.::P:

 

This guy is the biggest thing I've done (so far...) so I guess it would be him. I used parts from 2 or 3 different Bones figures, some stuff from the bits box, and a lot of Green Stuff.

Question the 14th of March:  Do you have any old school minis in your painting queue? (I’m arbitrarily defining old school as being released more than 20 years ago)  If so, what is/are it/they?

 

Behind on this thread...oh deities, yes.  In terms of immediately in the queue, I have a bunch of ancient Minifigs Mythical Earth Figures primed and on sticks; a dozen Rohirrim cavalry, two dozen orcs and goblins of various sizes, and a dozen Saxon spearmen standing in as Lakefolk this week.  Ral Partha, Heritage, Minifigs, and more beyond that...

Yes.  Probably about a thousand between my recovered lead boxes and the crates of minis that are still in the blister.  Highlights include a complete run of Ral Partha Limited Edition boxes and a complete set of Julie Guthrie Personalities by Grenadier.

Yes, most frequently bases of various sorts. Also, changing weapons, adding hats, that sort of thing. I've posted it before, but the one I'm most pleased with is a bird man I did using a GW mini, reaper wings, a random arm, and plenty of green stuff.

Sculpted in the face, the feathers on the back, and the feet.

I've fallen behind on this this month but I have an answer today! 

 

I'm currently in the process of modding the bones hydra to have wings to be a mini version of Ma'al. So far it's going well and there's only been one injury. I'm pretty happy with it as it is right now but we'll see how that goes as I continue.

Nothing on my end - not really an aspect of the hobby I'm big into.

 

The closest I've come is a board game insert made out of foamcore.  Other than that, I've made papercraft terrain - but seeing as I didn't design it, I don't think it counts for this question!

I built a boat.

 

Not quite from scratch. It was a hull and railings when I got it. But the masts and the rigging and sails, the spars and yards and bowsprit, the chains and the anchors, and especially the paint job, those are mine.

      The obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      I'm going to go walk the dogs, and then post the first question of the month...
