  1. I made it out of a doorway from bones 3. And I glued a picture of the window to the back of it.
  2. Here is a terrain piece I made for the Burning Light campaign https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/65305368_10157340065158926_3557941695301550080_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_oc=AQmWCNgBNd7UwRPiWXzCccuvqm4aNK_akBCRtS-21s1_46z1D2YaRZghoypjCx12RLQ&_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&oh=8fc4e9a8a9098f9fbbecd6cb4db50bbb&oe=5D81813E buckyball

    Looking for a kind of mini (or how to make it)

    Watson's hands are variable and one of the choices is a case. If you can do a hand swap with a fantasy mini it would be easy. https://www.reapermini.com/search/watson buckyball

    Mass Combat

    Savage Worlds has a miniatures rules set called Savage Worlds Showdown. You could combine the games and play larger scale battles with your roleplaying group. buckyball

    Citadel Contrast paints

    I tried the contrast snakebite leather. It was very similar to a paint the Warstore used to sell. It is very thin and has less surface tension. This makes it sink into the cracks better. They are not bad, but I don’t anticipate needing ant more of these paints. Buckyball

    2019 Spring Exchange

    I would second what Chaoswolf said. The only person you need to compete against is yourself. Also everyone starts somewhere. My early figures were terrible for years and years but, I got stuff painted. Including my old Ral Partha Gnolls, which I still use today for Rangers of Shadowdeep. buckyball
  8. 1) Chris Tubb is my favorite. His proportions and animation are the best. And most importantly his character figures have character. In rpgs I play in, my character figures are almost always Mithril, Phaeton or Prince August. 2) A very close second is Tom Meier. His figures have very good proportions. The animation tends to be a little stiff though. And he really excels at detail. I really like his Darksword figures. If I were a better painter I would paint more of them. 3) A close third is Julie Guthrie. Like Tom and Chris, her figures have good proportions and animation. The rpg character figures I paint for other people are frequently by her.
  9. 1) human civilians. I often try to paint these to look like certain people 2) furry animals natural creatures can be more challenging and interesting than fantasy ones 3) trolls Buckyball

    Duskwardens of Dreadmere

    Hey Adrift. For D&D, I think you may want to contact ReaperWolf. I believe he is organizing the Dreadmere Dungeons and Dragons games. I am hoping to run a game called Rangers of Shadow Deep, but I am calling it Duskwardens of Dreadmere to match the convention's setting. You are more than welcome to play in my games, IF I can get them on the schedule. Last year I tried to run Frostgrave but it didn't get on the schedule and we only played a few pickup games. Games should be added to the schedule like the classes were, but I dont know when that will happen. And you will register for them like classes. At least that was how it was last year. buckyball
  11. Here is a link to a photo of some vine monsters I made by gluing green pipecleaner sections to some old miniature bases I had. The big plant monster was a reaper figure from Bones 3. https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/62541528_10157297703528926_8176561891183689728_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_oc=AQkfOcLP9npxEF2s0Vnzc7656ludJ52WOHVF76ZzxrvLiX5Nb3HOiJJSrwCCzJeiBhMZ-KDVtF00XOLlSHNC9Gp-&_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&oh=ae9e5d922572ac54a24691af8c32b896&oe=5D9BA94A And here is a more detailed picture. https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/62538108_10157297703483926_3581389777196285952_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_oc=AQm1Ab_jY7qGoQahP6idRNLy5XwzZY20LZhLHhUuU8yrVYx-PNM7B_8VKHbPK2J-k8lvI7drNdJtR7FAu-0o21o_&_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&oh=445da001235fa4cc6e4a4476f3e22fdf&oe=5D8802BA I glued ballast around the base of the vines to represent that they are bursting out of the ground. buckyball

    It sounds like you need to go down 4 stops on your ISO. Have you tried photographing outside on a sunny day? buckyball
