Kulathi Force and Terrain

Recommended Posts

 Started building a Kulathi battle force and colony outpost for their Kuden-3 outpost, in the Beehive star cluster, in the crab nebula ... 

 

Having 3 fingers a hand and 6 limbs the number system fore the Kulathi is based on 6 ... with 2,3 and 4 also prominent, so I based there units on 6 ...

 

An officer (2 pistols = smg) 3 left hand smg and 2 right hand automatic rifles make a strike team ... no other unit types teams can exceed the number of strike teams.

 

 The fire team has 1 officer 1 smg and 4 auto rifles ... a longer ranged bite.

 

I'm also adding a few hound of Tindalos units (4 with 1 smg and 1 officer kulathi) with bigger things in the works ...

The lower "den doors" are entry / exit points to their underground grottoes and tunnel systems ... one basic sized unit can enter or exit a turn ...

 

 The taller "vents" help to regulate air flow in the underground grottoes and can be used as doors by a few unit types ... 

 

 The "overgrown" doors are part of the Terra forming process and part of the grotto development cycle of growth ...

 

Also in development is a larger "main entrance" enabling multiple unit deployment or larger ... things ... to come and go ... also a watch tower to keep an eye on key areas and provide a prime fire support spotting position.

 Thanks for the replies ... it all started with a few wonderful sculptures by Bob Ridolfi (kulathi) and Kevin Williams (Hounds of Tindalos) ... and some pvc pipe , pvc round outlet covers , pvc glue ...

 

 Once the basics where glues together some 'Flexall' as a gap filler (like spackle but dries much stronger and has a nice grain to it) and a lil foaming gorilla glue around the top rims to round them off ... a lil run down the sides for the organic look ... 

 

 Base coat, texture coat and ready for paint and or wash ... and maybe some hot glues aquarium shrubbery to top it off.

 The Den cluster grows as its background concepts develop (in the sci-fi section) more paint ... and more drying time , if only I had more work space I could have more things drying at once ... atm, terrain and a Kuden sand worm (paper and glue only at this point, almost ready for the spackle) ...

 Looking over the set so far I'm lacking shrubbery ... the set is designed to blend into a desert / ruins setup but it seems lacking on foliage ... expansion start up plants ... sooo ... I'll be adding some den "sprouts" ...

 

 Painting and basing on the rest of the set going on in the background ...

 

 As for the Kulathi main force ... a load of hounds showed up and waiting for the bases to show ... I'll be fielding 6-8 units and 4+ command options very soon ... pics to follow super basic wash and dry brush paint scem designed to blow out an army asap ... and hide abismal lack of painting skills.

The latest additions to planet Kuden ...

 With one of the prototypes in the back left corner ... it now adds up to a good amount of table space ... but I'm thinking some generic desert / planes terrain in the same base style would round the set out ...

 The Kuden landscape expands ... in the for ground the boneyard , difficult terrain for walking movement,  dangerous terrain for ground based vehicles (other than walkers and skimmers) ... in the background , something I should have painted before I based ... yes I make mistakes, lots if then, I call it the learning curve and try to not repeat mistakes ... it sometimes works ... the wreaked ship parts are from the lost to the OOP game Vor the Maelstrom,  as is my Growler force ...

      Okay, so this isn't so much a "conversion" as it is an "appropriation."  I had #77470 "Elthin Bluesteel, Gunslinger" (Pathfinder Bones) in my box o' Kickstarter Bones, while I was digging through to find anything that might even remotely look appropriate for a "Wild West" scenario.  Sure, he's got some crazy boots, a big ol' dagger, and some sort of leather armor layered thing going on with his torso area, but he's got a gun, a cowboy hat, and a drape to one side that feels kind of Eastwood-ish to me. 
       
      He also suffers from a wee bit of "melty face," as there's next-to-no definition to that face, and I'm still not even sure where the eyes were supposed to be, exactly.  In my case, though, that only inspired me to notice that the details for his leather armor, etc., were so shallow that most of the parts incongruous to a cowboy gunslinger could probably just be painted over.  He's not going to win any contests, but looks passable as another pistol-toting gunslinger in just another ordinary western town.  (In this case, it would be the Flats outside quasi-historic Fort Griffin, as interpreted by Dog House Rules LLC in their "Frontier Towns: Fort Griffin" supplement.  I based the scratch-built building off of a floor plan by Karl Keesler, and it's the central piece to a mini-adventure pulled from the book.)
       
      Anyway, I just think there's something ... amusing? ... about when I can delve into Reaper's regular fantasy line and find something that would work perfectly well for other genres.  For some subjects, there's nothing terribly special about it: A fox is a fox, a bird is a bird, a dog is a dog, a cat is a cat, and it's not the least bit surprising that a pack of little animal familiars in the fantasy line would work just as well as pets for a modern or historic or even sci-fi setting (we just pretend that they're REPLICANT animals, or we paint them in funky colors).  Plus, there are a number of D&D-ish monsters that bear no resemblance to anything recognizable from well-known myths and such -- and the only reason we think of them as "fantasy" was because Gary Gygax found a bunch of cheap plastic imported Kaiju toys and transformed them into "owlbears" and "rust monsters" and so forth for D&D, and "D&D is fantasy," so that's that.
       
      Still, somehow there's something "neat" about digging through a big box o' Kickstarter Bones, picking up some barbarian model, and realizing that if only I swap his bendy axe with a spare 40K POWER AXE, and paint up his armor plates to look like scrap metal (maybe with some paper-printed license plates and stop signs glued on), he'd make a GREAT post-apocalyptic raider type, etc.  Or, some beast-man monster type could just as easily be some sort of pulp-universe alien, if only I paint up his armor a little differently and stick a ray-gun in his hand.  And one of these days I'm going to turn that Mantis Assassin into a Kamen Rider.  ;)
       
      Oh yeah, and as for the building: That's scratch-built from foam-core, cardstock (for raised details such as window and door frames), mat board, craft sticks, chopsticks (for the porch pillars), and wire, decorated with some Hirst Arts Castlemolds castings (for the porch furniture).

      One of my newer pieces.  Been having a play with a couple of corrugating tools and a baked bean tin.  Really enjoy making these things,  just need a bigger house to store them in.

      Gloomhaven Scenario 1 - Miniatures are property of Cephalofair Games 3d printable hex tiles, perfectly compatible with Gloomhaven or any RPG, as well as Shadespire and other hex based games by scaling up the tiles.
      Adventuring in multiple universes often takes us to fantastic places, 3d printing has made it possible to bring the worlds from our imaginations to the table. There are already many systems which create fantastic dungeons, caverns, towns and forests; however all of these systems use square based grids. Squares are very good for some things, making a rectangular room is easier to imagine than adding walls to a hex grid, however this set has a new way to make easy walls while also taking the many advantages of a hex grid which are:
      No diagonal movement - fair and more natural movement 1 hex based module - more configurations and more possible builds Adjacency - No diagonal attacks, every slot available to attackers is clear Natural Formations - Hexes present a more natural shape so they adapt better to natural formations Irregular Rooms - whenever there is a skew wall squares tend to have too much unused space, with hex grids you can do walls in every 8 directions with our wall system. Easier Spells - some spells have a much easier way to calculate the appropriate area of effect. These are only some of the advantages, if you want to convert to hex d20SRD has some other pointers. 
      This set uses Printable Scenery's Openlock design. Their design is well known and has been open from the get-go, this has let a ton of people grow the community and make some incredible designs. If you like this set please visit their page to look at what they have. I am also working on a solution to make the sets more compatible and have some connection tiles, go from squares to hexes!
      Texture Sets
      This campaign has 4 base sets, and one trap and decoration bundle, Most of the sets include at least 1 tile per available frame, one wall per wall length and a column. Most have more options that will be listed below.
      The Dungeon Set has a complete set, plus some extra broken walls and floors with moss and a more broken stone.
      The Cave set has extra wall textures to make your caverns look more realistic.
      The Tavern set has an extra set of "inn" walls with stucco to give some wall variety.
      The Grassland set has 3 full sets of floors, grass, mixed and dirt, this way you can make roads and transition tiles easily.
      With over 45 different decorations and traps, this is the perfect addition to liven up your dungeons and make them look more populated. includes some tiles that snap on to the frame system.

      I bought into the recent Terrain Crate Kickstarter; getting the Dungeon Crate, and the Battlefield Crate, along with the Dark Lord's Tower set.  My Terrain Crate shipment arrived in the early Summer, and I immediately painted two of the large tents that came with the "Campsite" portion of the Battlefield Crate to use in a game I did at Historicon.  Recently, I've been painting some of the "Abandoned Mine" stuff from the Dungeon Crate, as I am preparing for a game a friend and I are doing at Fall-In using our Tablescapes Dungeon Mines sets.    
       
      I thought I'd start a thread to chronicle the pieces I paint, to help me keep track, and to help keep me motivated to keep plowing through.  There's a lot of pieces!   I hope to use a bunch of it in my Fall-In game, so have some motivation there as well.
       
       
      Big Tents:

       
      The Terrain Crate stuff goes great with the Tablescapes Dungeon Mines sets.
