  1. Well done so far and you did not overdo the roof, it is spot on. What are you going to do for the mess on the porch? Some suggestions depending on your budget. TT combat terrain has a camping accessories pack with a BBQ Grill and an ice chest. Black cat bases has a street litter pack with takeaway boxes and cups. There are also several manufactures that do various bottles in clear resin. Green stuff world also has a mould for cinderblocks.
  2. They still had not finished that display before I immigrated sit is nice to hear that it is now there for the public to see.
  3. That one was found not far from where I grew up. It will be very cool to see where you go from here.
  4. Finished up another building. Foamex construction. Finished with craft paints, loads of washes, some GW technicals and GW paints. Hope you like.
  5. Just a quick tutorial as I needed some for a build. How to make broken clay pots. Take a resin or plastic pot, or a bead that you are using to simulate a pot and use insta-mold/blue stuff/omyaru to make a one sided mould of the top, bottom and a side. Use milliput/aves epoxy sculpt/magic sculpt to fill the mould and take a brush handle to push it to the sides and top of the mould. You want it thin on the sides but not too thin. If the putty is slightly translucent when holding it up to a light it is too thin. Wait for the putty to set for 24 hours so it is completely cured. De-mould and start clipping and cutting each piece. Try to make it look like natural breaks and glue in place. will probably superglue some broken egg shells on this pile too just to bulk out the broken pots. Edit: I forgot to mention. The pots that I used were the most excellent details from Crooked Dice.
  6. Very not bad! Just a suggestion if you are in the states. Have a look around for Rustall in model shops that specialize in trains. If I could find it over here I would pick up enough to last several years. The rust fluid can be built up from a slight filter/tint to heavy rusting. The full pack shown above has their black wash which is passable, a paint on dull coat and a dust filter.
  7. Wood dowel two different diameters of solder and filled the joints. Attached image of one of the pillars prior to filling and paint.
  8. Just an update: Tried out the new Frosgtrave 2E rules last Tuesday night and it was a bloodbath. We did two fresh level 0 warbands and went to town. Played the Summoning Bell scenario on a 3X3 board. Mechanically the rules were the same and it was an easy play. The particulars were what caught us both out. I fielded an illusionist and added the spell blink to my arsenal. It was cast five times between my wizards and only “worked” once. The thief that it was cast on in that instance made his will roll and the spell had no effect. Between the first four randomly rolled monsters in the corners and the double random encounters almost every turn we ended up with the following monsters on the board: 4 snow trolls 4 Toads 4 wearwolves 2 armoured skeletons 2 skeletons 2 Snow Leopards 1 white gorilla 1 ghoul Thankfully all the big stuff ended up coming from only two adjoining sides giving both of us a clear shot to get something off the board. I managed off with only one treasure, my apprentice and a wounded thief. After the game my wizard ended up with a niggling injury so I have that to look forward to. All of my other models came off fine. I also missed my chance for my ulterior motive. I opened the casket but was unable to spend the time to finish the conditions on the card. I did kill the ghoul, two skeletons and a Snow Leopard. Mark ended up stopping the bell , a troll helped him finish his ulterior motive by killing one of my models and he collected two treasures. He only had two thieves make it off the board and his wizard earned twice the experience but also died for his troubles. His apothecary ended up seriously injured and will not play the next game. All in all it was a fun if bloody game. I would suggest that anyone looking to play this scenario get their wizards up a couple of levels prior to attempting it. On to some random photos with no descriptions.
  9. Well done on all. I particularly like the foo dog. The mini above. Where is it from?
  10. I do all my doors 1 1/2 inch. Windows are usually either 1 or 1 1/2 inches depending.
  11. Did a boat burial. I felt free to mix types as this is for a fantasy setting. Built a simple boat from card and matchsticks. Filled it with bits, added a foam hill, foam rocks textured and paint. Fairly happy with the build but my painting skills are still lacking. Hope you like.
  12. Thanks for the comps all. Just realized when I came back to look that this is in the wrong forum. Should have been in Show Off.
  13. Finished my TT Combat Terrain Shield-maidens riding walruses. I have to say they were fun and I am still tempted to do an entire army but do not think my attention span will last long enough to commit to that project. And off to the photos. General Unit leader Standard Bearer. As you can see I can't paint freehand to save my life. Musician One of the troops. On this one you can see the fish I added to some of the bases. Here is the unit shot. There are pictures of all the individual models on my blog if you are interested.
  14. The tutorial is pretty easy to do as it is all washes. I was heavy on the painted highlights but on the table it does not notice.
  15. Just some rat swarms with the extra rats from two packs of Reaper 02399. I could never figure out what to do with these and finally got them to work after the fifth attempt.
  16. Finished some ethereal undead models using a tutorial from the Gardens of Hecate. I have never been happy with my painted ethereal models until now. Hope you like.
  17. Very nice all around. I have been looking at this one on ebay do you have a picture next to another model or a ruler to show scale?
  18. Nice paint on the stones and lovely groundwork.
  19. Very cool conversions so far filling out a great thread. Where did you find the bear traps? Been looking for some that I do not have to scratch build.
  20. Just a quick update. I have poured the fourth base so that is 1/3 of the models poured. There are some bubbles but they have been floating out while the resin sets. Pouring one base mould at a time is killing me.
  21. Thanks for the comps. Wife picked up a unit of ten and the general for my birthday so the plan is all of them. Still tempted to build a whole army of the concept.
  22. Mostly finished my proof of concept. I still have to add some gloss effects to the areas that are going to be wet but out of water. Started off with the finished model by adding some vegetation to the sandy beach base. I also added some small fish made of Fimo with fishing line supports. All of this was stuffed into a Green Stuff World Containment mould. I mixed my resin with a slight green tint using inks and poured so the edges of the meniscus touched the top of the mould (almost to the top). After this was set I used UV setting resin agitated with a coffee stirrer to create the surface. As I am happy with this one I will move on to the rest. Hope you like.
  23. Very nice work. One question. Are the tall brown stalks dried flowers or a product? Always on the lookout for a new product!!
  24. Amazingly enough I got into painting these and have pretty much finished the first three. I have never progressed my painting skills past tabletop quality but I am quite happy with these. The walrus skin was problematic as they not only have huge variations in colour but individual animals colour will change drastically due to changes in temperature. They literally changes colours when their skin contracts in cold water. In the end I decided to do a light brown base with dark brown in the skin folds. Then sponged on grey and flesh. Once that was done a sepia wash then multiple washes on the fins to give a transition to darker fins. After that painted I painted on some lighter scars. I am really happy with them. Still have some work to do on the base so I am not done but there you go.
  25. They are part of a unit so there are more. The snow effect is going to be sand. It is made using Sand Texturing Gel from Winsor & Newton. I am using it to try to simulate churned up beach sand in this instance so we shall see if it works.
