  1. Sorry for the confusion, the stonework is all done with an exacto knife and a pen.
  2. Actually it's a lot simpler than that one posted, though I've definitely considered making something more specific to doing tiles. The texture roller I made is just a cheap wooden rolling pin that my wife had originally used an epoxy glue on to attach some decorative glass based gravel (from the dollar store) to as a birthday present for me. Unfortunately, the glue wasn't strong enough to hold the pieces in place, and the gravel was too sharp, cutting the foam much more and not providing a smooth transition between breaks in the surface. So I mixed up some magic sculp (a two part modeling
  3. If you're interested in specifics feel free to shoot me a PM, but I don't want to violate the forum terms of service by promoting the boards here. Honestly I don't really know what this board would sell for, and I don't have enough material to make a new master for the play surface or cast another set at the moment anyway. When I do finish the bases I'll definitely post them here as well, but it may be a couple of weeks before I have them put together.
  4. Wow, thanks for all the comments! Here's a close up shot of the play surface. I have a rolling pin that's got gravel and epoxy sculpting compound on it so that I can quickly texture large surfaces. Other than that, the process is pretty straight forward carving with an exacto knife and tracing those lines with a pen, and pushing in random stones to create height variation on the surface. Hopefully this image shows the surface texture more clearly...
  5. So I'd posted a couple weeks ago some in progress shots of a chess board I was working on. I've been pretty busy but I finally got around to getting this to a state where sharing more photos makes sense. The pieces aren't anything I've created, I just made the board. When I created my first mold for the play surface, I ended up breaking the mold. My first time using resin with a polyurethane mold and it just didn't go over well. Lesson learned, the sides were molded in silicon and worked very well, so I'll be carving up a new master for the top surface soon and will mold that in silicon w
  6. Gene, I'm floored that you'd be inspired by a piece of mine. If you do a new boxed set of mouslings, maybe pirates versus ninjas? I'd definitely have to pick that up. The mouslings are definitely a fantastic addition to Reaper's line up. :)
  7. Greetings! Some time ago I posted a WIP of this project, and got some great feedback. Now that it's finished I thought I'd share some more photos. This piece is being donated to an art auction to support the Children's Trust Fund of Oregon. Each year, Funkin donates several of their styrene pumpkins, which go to artists who create pieces that then get auctioned off. All of the proceeds support the CTFO, and you can read more about the work they do and see pictures of past events at their website. http://www.ctfo.org This year, I knew I wanted to do something a bit different, so I start
  8. Thanks all for the comments. I like the idea of crates or barrels, maybe even a smaller boat in the water to add a bit more interest to the base without risking ruination by resizing it. Nice shipwreck in progress linked there, I'll definitely add some additional details to the boat itself, and I like the Mickey jolly roger, but I don't know if I'll go for that, as it could be copyright infringement. I used bone for the mast because I wanted to try to use something relatively similar in scale to the pumpkin, and because it's a Halloween season display piece, so it seemed to make sense to a
  9. Greetings folks! I haven't posted here too much, but have been a longtime fan of Reaper products. I've recently begun painting minis again, though I'm honestly a bit more of a terrain guy. I couldn't resist picking up a box of Mousling adventurers when they were released, however, as I thought they'd be perfect for a project I'm working on. Every October my wife and I participate in a charity auction for the Children's Trust Fund of Oregon. We're given a funkin (a styrene pumpkin) to turn into a work of art or display piece that is then auctioned off to local businesses to be displayed in buil
  10. Greetings everyone, some great entries so far! I know this isn't the most technically adept entry, but I thought I'd take advantage of the contest to repaint an old favorite of mine. This mini used to represent my gnomish bard in the long running Cauldron campaign I played in a couple of years ago. Gnome bards have always been a favorite for me, and I thought it would be a fitting send off for him to blast him with ice and snow, giving him the same cold shoulder that Wizards gave to both gnomes AND bards with their release of 4th Edition. So, hope you can enjoy this amateur attempt. The ba
