  1. We are making realistically textured blue foam (Styrofoam) sheets so you can build your own tabletop wargames and RPG scenery. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/firedragongames/stone-textured-foam-sheets-for-wargames-and-rpg-sc?ref=category_newest
  2. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/48375726/resin-wargaming-scenery-and-terrain-ancient-ruins?ref=category_newest Detailed resin scenery & terrain for use in miniature wargames & RPGs, themed after the stone ruins of an ancient civilization.
  3. When I first saw the thread over on the Terrain Forum, where lowlylowlycook was painting up Kalladrax to use as Frostgrave terrain, I thought that it was a really cool idea; and I decided I wanted do the same for my Frostgrave games. So, I picked up a copy of Kalladrax, and last Thursday I got started on the project, and just finished up yesterday. If you'd like to see the full step by step Work-in-Progress thread, please see here on my Frostgrave Terrain thread; otherwise, on to the photos! :) I'm really happy with how this piece came out. I think it will be quite the show-stopper when used as the centerpiece on my Frostgrave table at upcoming conventions.
  4. This is a post for everyone to share the tables they play their games on, the more the merrier. Sci-fi, fantasy, modern, post apoc, horror....anything! This was the table I laid out last night for our games of infinity. Sadly I did not get to play a game as we got a bit of a late start and after the first game of the night the others decided it was getting a bit late to start a second game. I will get a chance to play on it as we have decided to do a little bit of an experiment and leave this table up for a couple of weeks to play all of our games of infinity on. We are trying to see if by leaving the terrain mostly static and probably keeping the same general list, if we will get a better grasp of how to play our own list no matter what the enemy brings. By doing this I also hope to see if there are any major flaws in my terrain layout technique/style. I DO NOT go for fair layouts when I set up a board, I go for more of a realistic look and feel. This board has quite a few long fire lanes, which could be a bad thing BUT it also has quite a few tightly packed areas where the fire fights would definitely be short ranged. The mission I chose to play on this particular night was rescue. There are eight civilians on the table, four of which you need to rescue by getting into base to base contact with them and synchronizing yourself with them, of course the four farthest from your deployment zone are the ones you must sync with. The player with the most synced civies wins, although if you can get your civies back to your deployment zone you can get even more points. This is a tough mission. Anyway, pics! As you can see my terrain is not more than primed so don't worry about terrain not being painted or not being well painted. I just want to see what types of terrain and game boards people set up to play games on.
  5. I was totally impressed by the Impudent Mortal Kickstarter, but seeing as the buildings on offer didn't appeal as much as older stock they had I ordered directly (and boy was it FAST). Because I wanted to get an idea of what I was doing before I tried building my fancy new things, I took advantage of a FLGS gift card to buy a Knight Models SWAT truck for the Batman game. Here are some product pics behind the spoiler The truck/van is mostly done except for touch-ups and sealing... but I'll still be posting process pics that I took along the way. I mistakenly thought it would be faster than a miniature (and I guess it was at my current pace)... but not really. The other ones I'll be posting as I go (I'm planning on using fancy Japanese paper offcuts as wallpaper, so it'll probably be slow).
  6. Our aim is simple; produce and supply quality table-top terrain buildings for fantasy gaming. To do this, we need your help! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gameterrain/gameterraincouk-buildings-for-tabletop-gaming?ref=category_newest
  7. Acquired as add-ons during the "Dungeon Monsters" Kickstarter by Johnny Borg Castings, I did up some dungeon decor and resting adventurers. "About our pay..." (the table and backdrop are the only non-Johnny Borg Castings material, both from Dwarven Forge) The decor alone: Drinking Barbarian: Feasting Barbarian: Resting Wizard who is not Santa:

  9. Alright, tonight is my first proper large game of CAV - Two buddies and I are playing tournament-style, "pick-your-force," that is to say I've built three, 6000 point forces (Adon, Templar, Malvernis) all with distinct playing styles. BUT ALSO we are fighting it out on a 6x4 sci-fi city! I haven't made any major changes since the last time I posted pics of about 1/3 of this thing, so the roads are still unmarked, but honestly I just want to get playing. Battle report to follow (probably), but pictures NOW!!!
  10. I painted up some terrain for use in D&D. First were the pillars from Dragon Forge Design, really nice resin pieces that are perfect for any dungeon. The pillars come in two pieces, and I chose to magnetize them rather than glue for a little extra flexibility (I can now use them to represent twice as many pillars on the tabletop, they can be used as ruined pillars, etc). I also painted up two small crypts from Ziterdes. Forgot to put Sir Forscale in there, but they are based on little pieces of plasticard that are 2 by 3 inches (with a D&D grid in mind). The crypts are in some kind of semi-hard foam material, but were really nice to paint. All in all, I really enjoyed painting these, and found that painting stone was a lot more fun than I'd thought it would be.
  11. I finished up my Dwarven Forge KS1 tiles this week. This picture includes all of my painted dungeon themed terrain (including 80 Stones Dungeon Tiles). Three base sets Three sets of stretch goals Two Curved Wall Add-ons Two Diagonal Wall Add-ons One Grand Stairs Add-on One Chamber of Sorrows Add-on A little over half of the stuff pictured above was painted in the last week.
  12. So, many moons agone I backed Stonehaven's Kickstarter for pop-up terrain. Slightly fewer moons agone, I backed their next Kickstarter for halflings - which also included pop-up terrain. And a couple of days ago, I realized that it would cost me quite literally half as much to buy a new inkjet printer as it would to get replacement cartridges for my clunky old printer. By all of these elements combined, I figured the time had come to start assembling the pop-up terrain I had so eagerly anticipated. I started about as simply as possible - with the grassy field. Lessons were learned, not least of which that I have no idea what I'm doing and barely the necessary coordination required... but somehow, I muddled through and made a passable hex. I added in the pond, to make it a little more interesting (and because it was there). There were a few bits and bobs left over, so after rereading the original thread we had on the pop-up kickstarter, I decided to see how coloured pencil would work with the sepia print. I think, when things have dried, I'm going to colour in at least the pond... probably not the whole field, but a blue pond should stand out nicely. I have others to print, and a complete set of the pre-printed, colour terrain. Watch this space for further developments.

  14. Just a quick post with a single pic - last week my friend and I had a tough time getting through 6,000 points, so we scaled it back a bit: 5,000, two squads each, no upgrades or specializations. We got a lot farther, but we still couldn't finish the battle in two hours (though it was getting to a sort of spillover point - kills were starting to pile up, CAVs had moved into their best firing positions, and so on). Anyhow, only managed to snap a single pic at the beginning of deployment, and it's not great, but: HILLS! I took some time off from working on my dissertation to build six hills out of pink insulation foam. They dried just in time to have a battle! The river, if you're curious, is from a company called "Wargamers Terrain." I have no idea why my friend put a bus in the ruins.

    dwarven ruins

    More from the Memorial Day paint binge challenge. These are made by Scibor and I thought they were cool just by themselves. I painted them up to use as scatter terrain or objective markers. The bases are 1" square.
  16. A coupla years ago, my Market square fountain froze and shattered after being left in the car overnight before a convention. Being one of the center pieces to my Mediterranean city terrain, I decided that it needed to be fixed. Instead of chipping out the water effect and re-pouring, I thought that I would like to 'kick it up a notch'. Having seen many cool fountains in Europe, I thought that I would like to try doing a Roman style tile pattern before adding the water effect.

    CAV City

    So definitely a work-in-progress, but getting very near the point of "I cannot look at this anymore without screaming," I present: CAV CITY! Details follow the pictures for any interested parties. DETAILS: This is a 4x2 section of game board. Full-size, my board is 6x4. I have enough road and buildings to cover the whole thing in a decently dense city section, especially if I throw in a tree-filled park, hill, or river. Buildings are blue electrical boxes spraypainted with "windows' painted on. Road is Styrene sheet painted with stone textured spray paint. Cars and buses: Ordered off Amazon - basically off-brand micro machines. Fun detail: only the buses are articulated enough to notice this, but these are UK-style "Drive on the left" vehicles! No idea how long this actually took to build as I work on it in my spare time, but I'll say that I started buying blue boxes in, I think, January. STILL TO DO: Road lines, a few more building details, and tidy up the edgework on the game board (you can still see wood in a few pics). STILL WANT: A bridge or two...that's about it. Otherwise, IMHO, it fits the bill for a futuristic / alien pre-fab city. An FTL ship jumps into system, dispatches a handful of dropships loaded up with snap-together plasteel and ferrocrete shelters, industrial rollers lay down pavement, and eager colonists are ready to begin their exciting new lives right up until they're declared collateral damage as a bunch of big, stompy robots smash them to pieces! Happy gaming!
  18. Has anyone noticed that those brown plastic inserts in chocolate boxes, when flipped upside down, look a lot like industrial storage tanks and bunkers?
  19. I have read some really outstanding and excellent writings by members...I don't know if this has already been done someplace (if so, I have not found it)...I know that there are talented artists among our members...I would love to see some of their art works...both from advanced professional/semi-professional artists as well as the novice doodler/sketcher. I am not an artist by any means, but I have done some amateur b/w pen & ink stuff for varied private usage! Are there any out there who would like to display there work(s)? I would really love to see them! Paul (Catdancer)
  20. Hi folks, Decided to take a break from CAVs and make some treasure tokens after seeing a tutorial I on here. Although I cannot find where the original tutorial is now (edit: you can find it here http://http://www.reapermini.com/TheCraft/33). These two took two hours for my fiance and I to make. I'm generally happy with how they came out, although the one lesson that I learned is that you need to make anything that sits with the gold very, very bright. When I painted the gemstones and the weapons I thought at first that they would look too ostentatious, but after adding the gold they kind of get drowned out. I also need to add another layer of dark wash to highlight the difference between the coins. But this was a fun project and I can see myself making more in the future. C&C always welcome!
  21. This week, I've been working on some of my CAV vehicles from the Kickstarter, and I was thinking about a box of leftover Mechwarrior clicky base stuff I had, and the idea came to me to make a destroyed mech or two to use as scenery on the tabletop. I wanted it to look like it had sat on a long-forgotten battlefield for decades or centuries. I began by slicing the mech from its clicky base, and then I used a pair of pliers to rip the arms and head off. I then used a drill to make a big hole in the torso to look like where a missile had hit, knocking out the mech. I also used the drill to enlarge some of the holes where the arms and head had been connected. I used my hobby knife to pry open the cockpit, and then cut down a 10mm Warmaster skeleton figure and glued it into the cockpit to represent the mech's long-deceased pilot. Next, I cut some small sections of thin wire and glued them in the holes with superglue to look like cables that had been ripped apart when the mech was destroyed. I glued the parts with hot glue to a 3-inch plastic base that I had beveled the edge of with a hobby knife; and then covered the base with Tacky glue and applied a coating of sand. I sprayed it flat black, and then painted it with a series of browns and oranges to give it a rusted look. I painted the ground cover and added some static grass to finish it off. And here's the finished piece, shown with some 10mm Dropzone Commander infantry and a tank for scale. For the full build write-up and more photos, please see my blog: One More Gaming Project
  22. I was at Adepticon in the Chicago area earlier this month. I took pictures. The whole album (except for Crystal Brush entry photos) is here, and here are some to look at: The legendary Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi! The Reaper Paint 'N' Take: I took one picture of my work.I brought "Black Moon's Bane", the spelljammer, and a group of my painted minis. I also took Crystal Brush photos in a separate file. Photobucket is being a little wonky, but if I can get them straightened out I will post them by tomorrow. There were so many beautifully painted minis!
  23. I had never painted a mousling before, but when my partner requested them I decided immediately to pair one with a Mice&Mystics figure (I have the minis but not the game. ) The archer looked like a good match, and I was thinking of some kind of duel, but didin't realize how small the mouslings are. So when they came I thought there is no way they would be fighting. So the family archery lesson was born. First I made and archery butt but that didn't look as good as I hoped. So I kept working on the meadow. One morning I woke up with the idea of shooting at a Micky Mouse wanted poster on a tree. But then I had to sculpt my first tree, and a poster. The tree was easier than I had feared and sculpting was done by the end of the day. I did an index card with 4 tiny posters to practice the writing. I have a picture of it somewhere... and with that the second title: "That doesn't look like you at all." the family: I cut the arrows out of the boys quiver and made a few extras with green stuff and scattered them as missed shots. The scale isn't perfect. This picture was taken before adding greenery branches or mom's arrow to the tree. Both me and the mosuling need more practice.
  24. Hello everybody! Some time ago I asked on a suggestion for placing a thread about alternatives to many materials that you modellers in the "first world" use and take for granted, but are more difficult to find when you are away (and shipping ends up being more expensive than the material itself). It was suggested this subforum, so here it is where I am posting. But I intend to make it even more than a simple "materials alternative" thread. As I thought about placing it in the WIP subforum, I realised... all these tips and stuff are very intimately related to one particular Work In Progress: myself, as a miniature painter/modeller. So, I cannot warranty entertaining posts, but at least a dumping place for a lot of stuff I came to realise, mostly on my own, and that can perhaps stir in you, fellow hobbist (hobbier? urgh), an urge to try something, if you haven't already. First, a word of caution: my native tongue is Spanish. In many ways Spanish, as a language, is more twisty and flowery. Please forgive me if my English, other than being grammatically wrong at places, is also full of twisting sentences. Sometimes language is more a rhyme than a simple statement; if you don't understand something I say, please, speak up and let me clarify. To start, allow me to -briefly- describe myself. I am Argentinian (Argentina is a south-american country waaaaay to the south, reaching into the South Pole area lengthwise), 32 years of age, married, one daughter, and a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. I work in an airline, corporate official, which allows me to browse the web when the job is "slow". I love airplanes mostly because of their grace, of their aesthetic glory. That some fascination comes with certain forms of art; and since I could never draw well some time ago (about 10 years ago or more) I did some miniature painting (stemming out of my RPG hobby; I've been deeply involved in that for about 15 years). I was never that good, but I loved to learn about techniques and trying to apply them. I converted every Space Marine I was about to paint (and that is the reason I never had more than a dozen of them painted). I painted alone, for I could never find a group to paint with, to learn and share ideas. But of course Internet is there to teach us, in a way. This is the first community I actually post to because it is so nice, and so full of people not only willing to teach, but also willing to learn. And I find that is when you do not fear to give your opinion of something you learn the most, out of your own suggestion, and out of other people's. So, sorry for the lengthy intro, and soon I will be posting about alternate materials, and things I find valuable in this modelling hobby. It goes as a given, but anyone that feels like sharing, please do. Take over the thread if you want, the more stuff for thought/experimentation, the better!
