  1. Groundwork came out lovely. Tied the great building together.
  2. The grave series is actually pretty ambiguous about much of the terrain that is needed past the centre objective. Usually it reads something along the lines of "should be cluttered as normal". Some individual scenarios are quite specific but the majority are pretty open. I agree that terrain should be more than just an obstacle and should be held in higher regard in both war and skirmish games. The real dig is that the rules need to cover many eventualities without becoming clunky. I am happy with the grave series as it is open enough to adapt to different terrain and simple e
  3. Thanks for the comps. Had not weighed it until this morning. 8 1/2 pounds. 23 X 13 X 9 inches. The foamex is light but there are three layers per wall so it adds up with all the other elements. I need to get a bigger Frostgrave building box as all of mine are 35 L Really Useful Boxes and this one will not fit in the bottom,
  4. Quick update as there is more to do. I still feel I am missing something on the sides and back. It does not quite work for me just yet. More photos on my blog if you are interested.
  5. No, Texas is close to Texas. It is so big that nothing else is nearby. Nice job on the woods. Just so everyone knows. Eastern Texas is quite lovely. Western Texas is too flat for my tastes.
  6. I have a bin that is full of everything from the full order of bones 1-3 and the expansions and bits I picked up from bones 4. I usually sort, and pick out minis for current projects and then throw the extras back in.
  7. Nice to see these painted. Still waiting for the UK shipping dates. Fingers crossed. đŸ˜¬
  8. Finished construction on my newest temple. Now I need to fill up the gaps over the next few evenings. There are complete photos of the interior and exterior on my blog if you are interested.
  9. My entry for Build Something Competition over on LAF. I did not make it past the first round as all of the entries were so well done. Now that I am out I can post some completed photos. I built some marsh bases.
  10. For what it is instamould (oyumaru) is a great product. The key is learning what its limitations are and working within those limitations or the learning curve that you were talking about. It can be used to make small two part moulds but does not work particularly well for a variety of reasons. My comments about expense and time is in relation to silicone moulds and casting resin vs what PacoBelan was wanting to do. Some miniature companies do use this process for making masters but they generally make blank or partially complete bodies that they can add smaller details such
  11. The concept sounds better than if you try to put it into practice. I have used instamould (oyumaru) to copy and transfer individual detail in putty to other models. If you are looking for free standing parts that are not supported by the miniatures surface it is quite difficult in instamould (such as a pointing hand on an outstretched arm). If you are sculpting your own parts and mould making you can do whatever you want. However they will have to be cast in a liquid resin as the silicone needed for the two sided moulds generally does not work well with greenstuff (or milliput) as the sili
  12. Started on the exterior. Slow going as Foamex is a bit of a pig to texture. Just some photos. Lots of gap filling and more exterior stonework still to go. More photos on my blog if you are interested.
  13. That's a very nice dumpster. Well done on the lettering and the weathering.
  14. Depending on how much you will be handling it you could make your own real scale barb wire. Drakkar models has a good tutorial with lots of photos so you can google or duck duck foo it. Not a good suggestion for something that you will be handling loads but it does look nice.
  15. Outstanding foamwork. Is it a solid piece or did you manage to work out a way to do the interior with all of the buttressing?
  16. Been looking hard at this model. I have their shuttle alpha so I know the quality is there. Just waiting to pick up a printer.
  17. Major construction on the interior is finished. Just have to cap and fill the voids between the interior and exterior walls and fill gaps. The alcoves where the bodies are held are slotted so they could be painted separately. Once I finish the inside I will start on the exterior.
  18. Ming's troops (crooked dice) Giant space emus with guns. (CP models)
  19. I would not usually purchase much from Mierce Miniatures as they are a boutique manufacture with boutique prices. They do hold regular sales on their miniatures and the miniatures are spectacular so if you can catch a sale just right then it is worthwhile. This is the MĂ³rannach, Beast of Cill Chonn Bog. It was painted almost exclusively with thin washes set down in layers with minimal highlighting. Used all of the supplied branches to add more roots to the arms and legs. Added a small tree and a few mushrooms. Used lots of vegetation on top. He is set on a 70mm base. Her
  20. I seriously looked at Dwarven Forge terrain twice as it is beautiful terrain. Once years ago when I was earning enough to purchase what I wanted and again when they put out their kickstarter. On both occasions I came up with the same reasons not to purchase it. If you are looking at investing in DF I would never tell you not to, it just did not work out for me. When I do modular terrain I tend to break it down into room size pieces for both ease of setup and so I can incorporate detail and vignettes into the build. I also like to customize most of what I purchase so I did not
  21. Very nice use of clutter and a well made piece. You might check out Clanmac's junktown scrapyard crew thread on the post appoc board at Lead Adventure forum for some more ideas. The thread is 89 pages long and the majority is well used cluttered terrain. Might give you some more ideas of materials to work with and things that you can do. Un-photobucked photos start on page 9.
  22. What is wrong with that? They were my runners. I have to pick up another batch convert to fit into Stargrave. I am thinking of doing this with guns.
  23. They all fit. Played my first game of Stargrave at the club tonight. Loads of fun and quite deadly. I finally have a use for all of my sci-fi terrain. Just photos of the first round unfortunately. It plays like Ghost Acrhapellago with guns. Guns in the game are deadly but not insurmountable.
