Rabble Rouser (3/8)



  1. Thanks! I was actually worried that it wouldn't come out well because I usually don't like the way they have to do fur on 3d printed minis. They can't do a fur 'texture', so they have to make it all wavy. Luckily, that didn't end up detracting from things :)
  2. You're both right, I should have taken pictures of that mini at eye level. I'm still getting used to my new picture taking setup, lol. At eye level, you can see how the mini uses the tail is used to hold itself up so that it is in a 'leaping' pose.
  3. Since I posted some of my work where I converted certain reaper miniatures into kitsune a while ago, I figured I would post one of the newer kitsune that I've painted recently. I got this miniature from "Everyman Gaming", they have been getting a site called imagine3dminiatures.com to 3d print miniatures for them. This miniature was a bit difficult to paint because I had to clean off a lot of plastic nubs that were leftover from the 3d printing process. I kept finding more even after I primed the miniature. I also had to cut the mini off of its 30mm base and glue it to one of reaper's 1 inch scale bases. However, in the end the mini came out very well! Well, some parts came out a bit messy, like the gold on the shield, and the black wash. Luckily, in real life people won't be able to see the messy black wash that I put on the mini, lol. Painting this mini was a lot of fun, so I'm planning to paint Everyman's nine tailed kitsune miniature soon :D
  4. I'd love to see minis for the new Advanced Race Guide races. Especially ones that are significantly different from humans, such as kitsune, ratfolk, and catfolk and so on. Sure, some people (such as myself) have been able to modify standard minis to resemble the ARG races, but I'm sure that there are plenty of people out there who will appreciate the additional options. Plus, I'm sure one of your sculpts would look better than my miniature surgery, lol.
  5. I intend to slowly craft a base made out of dead adventurers for him.
  6. Thanks for the tips! I've gone ahead and resealed a few of my minis. I haven't noticed any bad reactions and the miniatures seem very well protected now. However, It seems that the extra layers greatly damaged the overall 'detail' of the miniatures. They have that "thick paint that obscures detail" look to them. This probably happened because I've been foolishly spraying a lot of dullcote on my more recent minis in an effort to get them to hold up better, so adding the krylon and another coat of dullcote was probably the straw that broke the camel's back so to speak. Ah well, this is probably still better than the paint getting rubbed off. At least I can look forward to my future miniatures being protected properly without sacrificing detail XD
  7. For Pathfinder I'm planning to stat him up at some point as (probably) a Great Wyrm Red Dragon, with either the Lich or Ravener template (pathfinder got rid of the dracolich template, everything uses lich now). Ravener if I can manage to get the soul flame effect right on this 'miniature'. Either way, this will make him at least CR 24. Yes, my players are probably going to have to fight him, and not even as the final boss of the campaign. Yes, I'm an evil gm. ;)
  8. Until recently I've been making the mistake of trying to use Testors DullCote as a protective layer. No hard gloss underneeth. I'm wondering if it isn't too late for me to protect my old miniatures by spraying a layer of Krylon Gloss over top their original Dullcote layer. Of course, after that I would have to spray another layer of Dullcote... Is it possible that having these alternating layers of dullcote and gloss could ruin the appearance of the miniatures? Yea, I'm being paranoid ;)
  9. A few months ago I pieced together two kitsune minis, you may be able to grab a few ideas and tips from what I went through in this thread.
  10. Muahaha, I managed to sneak into the $132 early bird pledge. I think I'll be getting the Saan and Rish armies... assuming they don't manage to get me to throw another $100 at this thing for the $240 bonuses.
  11. Darn, if this thing actually managed to make it to the terrain bonus I'm going to be really tempted to go for the $240 pledge...
  12. I finally broke down and got the $85 army box pledge. I have a hard time resisting dragon stuff even though I doubt that I'll play the actual wargame. I'm getting the Rish army because I think a lot of the smaller minis will be useful for Pathfinder and the armored dragons are pretty unique. I also threw in an extra $10 to get the mini of the big cat rider :) Must resist putting even more money in... with this I've already dropped like $500 on kickstarters, ick.
  13. And one of the new packs also looks like it has Tengu's in it.. Yep, I saw that. I'm just not sure if they'll be close enough to Pathfinder's Tengus to be useful to me. The concept art seems more monstrous. This is also the source of my hesitation on the kitsune: it seems like they will have a multi-tailed fox, but I'm also hoping that the humanoid that comes with the fox will also have a good kitsune theme. Edit: After thinking on this a bit more, I've decided to just wait until the minis I want go on sale on their website. I've already thrown too much money into kickstarters XD
  14. I'll be honest, I'm interested in this one almost entirely because they'll actually have a kitsune miniature. I've been looking all over for those things. If I understand this correctly, I'll just have to hope that it reaches a funding level of 15.000 so the 'Heaven Omnyouji' are unlocked. Hmm, I think I will wait and see if I can at least see the concept art before committing.
  15. Hah, believe it or not that skull is just a pet cage decoration from Pet Smart that I thought would work perfectly as a prop for that room. It was exactly the right size, though technically I guess it isn't a "Serpent's Skull".
