  1. After seeing Laoke's slimes, I wanted an ochre jelly with translucency. Hotglue shaped by dunking a mass of it into icewater (great tip I saw on the DM's Craft FB page), building up a wave. Used a lighter to melt down any wispy hotglue threads (one snuck by), then hotglued to a 1.5" base already prepped as cave floor. Slathered on a mix of yellow-orange food colouring and slow curing Delta Creative PermEnamel gloss. TBH it's more yellow in person, being very close to Laoke's G-cube's colour. but my camera refuses to capture that.
  2. Just saw this on my feed on Facebook from a couple friends and I just had to share this with folks here, since this is right in our wheel house. How to turn Barbies into Doctor Who Weeping Angels
  3. So I have decided for Reapercon to do my first diorama. (I have three in my head but this one yanks my heartstrings the most) I want to do a setting of Maria vs the Maschinemensch. (From Metropolis) Reaper has the PERFECT Figure for the Maschinemench but I have yet to find one for Maria. (I'm still hunting though) Maria is pretty simply dressed, always very composed. (If you've never seen the movie, Maria is a very popular public figure who stands for all things good and pure. This is probably my most favorite picture of her: That's one figure issue, the other is scenery. Metropolis
  4. So in an effort to start the process of beginning to try and take better photos of my minis I've built a light box. It's smallish by design, and would cost about $4 if I didn't already have all the bits laying around. I present, ghetto light box! This setup is strictly 'proof of concept' to see how, or if at all, it works. I have a warm light and a "sun" light and they are pretty different colors of light. I have a tripod, but it puts the camera too high, so the drill bit box is standing in for camera-steady duty. It's just a bit of foamcore, parchment paper, and glue. I spra
  5. I've found a method of producing extremely cheap, but effective inks for washing your miniatures! It involves stuff you can find for very cheap at your local dollar store, so here's hoping this helps some people. WARNING: Please, only use this stuff if your miniature is properly layered with paint. Do not use this if you paint in thick layers as the alcohol will strip a few layers of paint before it drys completely. If layered properly, the paint job will not be affected noticeably. Make sure before using this stuff your paint is 100% cured. When in doubt, wait a day. Step 1. Go to you
  6. Ever so slowly since i began painting minis (i've only painted a few, total newb) the corner of my desk has become more and more crowded. I had seen a posting a while back where a guy made a paint rack out of a few planks and some spacers... so i decided to do something similiar to at least get the paints off my desk (that is until the new game room is done ...more on that later) So i grabbed a couple pieces of red oak today, measuring 9x36 each... i fastened them together with connecter bolts (from the rear) and into these grabby socket things (technical term i know) so that i wouldn't
  7. Ok, so I was looking for flow improver today, and Hobby Lobby and Joanne's did not have it. I want to make a wash similar to Les's wash recipes... I have the ink, distilled water, and matte medium, but no flow improver... I've read Future works as a flow improver, also dish soap works... So, anyone have a suggested recipe with the inks, and matte medium?
