  1. I recently picked up the Dragons Don't Share boxed set, and was really taken with the terrain pieces. So I decided to undertake a hefty terrain project. The Bones pieces and slate were glued to a cork sheet, which was then glued to the back of a metal pizza pie plate. The ground was covered with small tallus pebbled, and then with a sand mix. Many different grades of static grass, flock, tufts, wildflowers, climbing ivy and moss covering were used to finish off the base and rubble. Hope you like it.

  2. Hi everyone! I just started a second Trash Bash Bits campaign on Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847163926/trash-bash-bits-part-two Trash Bash Bits were created to make the crafting of wargame buildings faster and more fun by eliminating the need to scratchbuild doors and windows to add to projects. The first Trash Bash Bits Kickstarter campaign was very successful and helped to create five designs of science fiction doors and windows. Trash Bash Bits 2 will add to this collection with five new designs! The castings of the first TBB campaign were enthusiastical
  3. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. With the refurbishment of the old house complete and it now up for sale, I have at last some time to paint a miniature or two. It has been more than a month since I touched a brush smaller than two inches wide, and I have come to the conclusion that I utterly detest redacorating houses, especially everything that involves masking tape. So anyway, here goes: Oathsworn Mi
  4. These are from the Boat Pack, part of the Renaissance Miniatures East Asian line. I made them up for my husband's birthday. On the whole they went together fairly straighforwardly. I found the cabin support hoops on the larger boat (they call it a "twakow" but "tongkang" may be a more common term -- I just think of it as a riverboat with a sail) needed a little shaving to fit into the openings on the deck. The planks that go over the hoops, making the shelter, were a little fiddly on both the sampan and the larger river boat. I ended up leaving off the top central plank on the sampan.
  5. These are prepainted wood kits from Renaissance Miniatures. I made them up as a gift for my husband, who is running a nautical campaign. The stiffened gauze fabric is supposed to look like a fish net. I'm not sure how successful it was. The kits are pretty nice. They are well-designed, fit together well and come apart into separate layers so you can place figures on different floors inside.
  6. These are a couple of little bridge kits from the prepainted Renaissance Miniatures East Asian line. I put them together as part of a terrain bundle for my husband's birthday. I think of them as the sort of thing that would show up in a zen garden. Putting the slats on was a little fiddly because they sort of held the whole thing together at first. I needed to glue down a couple of steps at each end, then wait and glue the rest later. These are Hasslefree figures and a little Breyer horse for scale.
  7. To get a bunch of minis painted for the paint challenge, I finished 7 more pieces of terrain from Oathsworn Miniatures. Fun and easy low stress tabletop paint jobs for the win!
  8. Okay, so I'm going through the local Goodwill, and I see this toy (image grabbed from a Google image search) on the shelf: (EDIT: This is the Fisher Price Lil Zoomers Rockin' Roll Truck. Picture is linked off-site and might not load for some -- sorry!) Because I'm me, the first thing I think is, "Wow, the front of that truck looks sort of like one of the cab-over-engine rusted hulks in Fallout." And, thus armed with a weird idea, I picked it up and converted it into THIS: Steps involved: * Flip over, unscrew every screw that can be unscrewed. * Snip wires goin
  9. This is not my work but since it involves the tower that comes with Dragons Don't Share I thought folks might be interested. There is some seriously nice work going on here and Kevin does a nice job stepping through his process. http://mageknightkevin.blogspot.com/2015/11/ruined-tower-large-terrain-project-step.html
  10. Here are 2 walls from Oathsworn Miniatures, that I painted to test out my color scheme, before I do the rest. These are painted using mainly with craft paints bought specifically for terrain painting.
  11. I decided to paint up my ruined tower from Dragons Don't Share 2. I'm no where near as good as the many other experts here but I thought I'd share what I did. In particular I was inspired by these 2 threads: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63646-dds-2-tower-finished-work-in-progress/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62204-dragons-dont-share-2-in-seven-days/ I decided to go with the same basic painting scheme as I did with my Dwarven Forge stuff. I started by covering it all with a basecoat of Pokorny Paints Base Grey. Then I washed it with black ink. I then
  12. Here are another three bones models to be used as scatter terrain for an upcoming Frostgrave game. These were sprayed black and then dry-brushed to highlight. Nice and simple. I decided to keep the colour choice simple and subtle to tie in with my other terrain. As always comments welcome.
  13. This was one of several terrain pieces my husband gave me for my birthday earlier this month, a "Medieval Cottage 1300 - 1700" from Perry Miniatures. This is the first hard plastic miniature I've ever put together, and I'd like to thank the other forumites who gave me advice on glues and things. It came on several sprues, three I think it was, and went together pretty easily. The doors open and shut. There is also a small shed for animals or wood or something, and a lot of woven wicker fencing. I didn't take any pictures of the assembly or priming, but at the moment it has been
  14. I'm happy to say that I was able to get spray paint AND brush-on to work as primers for my shipping containers. The top-most red shipping container in the picture was painted using a can of red spray paint (Wal-Mart store brand). I started by spraying the underside of the lid and the inside of the container to see how the plastic would hold up. The lid underside dried reasonably quickly, though the interior of the container remained tacky for longer than it usually takes for base-coats on my miniatures to dry (so for a bit I was concerned that this wouldn't work). However, when I let it si
  15. Has anyone used papier-mâché in terrain making? Seems like an easy way to make large light weight things like hills and mountains that still have the potential to be rather strong, depending on how many layers you use, and what you varnish/seal it with.
  16. A few years ago I had picked up this aquarium decoration for gaming use, and not knowing what exactly to do with it I had stuck it in a cabinet and almost forgot about it. Then, while reading the Frostgrave rulebook, and about the various oddities that can be found in the city; I got the idea to make a terrain piece for my Frostgrave games that was a magically shrunken domed city that floated about the Frostgrave ruins. I separated the top piece from its original pedestal, and mounted it on a flight-stand peg and a conventional large round plastic figure base. I extended the castle ground
  17. Has anyone got recommendations for terrain of a suitable scale for CAV robots, with a particular focus on buildings? I am told the scale is 10mm, which I am told is about 1/180, or model railroad N scale. There are a lot of readymade and kit model railroad buildings out there, although most of them seem to be smaller and more rural or historical. Are they worth the price? Hydrocal is like plaster, isn't it? So a hydrocal building would be pretty heavy. Styrene, however, sounds a bit fragile. But I don't know; it's not my area of expertise. I have some vision of playing the
  18. Finally got back to doing conventions this weekend, with CelestiCon in Fremont, CA. Here's a glimpse at some stuff we had on the table. Most of what we had this weekend was scratch-built, or kit-scratched, which is I guess what you would call it when you borrow one piece from a model (like a GW crater) and scratch build on top of it. Not quite a kitbash. But anyway, most of it was just made by hand.
  19. Since they didn't fit in any of my other recent topics, here we have my newest Nurgle Lord, Rotmeister Gleb Festershire (who is totally not Otto Glottkin):
  20. Oathsworn Jo's Burrows and Badgers tents.
  21. Originally I decided not to get this set with Bones2, At the time I was living in a cramped apartment and had no display areas and little storage space. I did buy most of the other dragons in Bones2, enough for a full set of chromatics. Then I moved to a bigger house with lots of room to display miniatures and scenes. We finished moving in only a few weeks after Bones2 arrived. So I found this set on Ebay instead. 65$ with free shipping. With the contest running hot for painting Maldrakar in a week I decided that the big draw for me was the deadline. Since I passed on Maldrakar,
  22. I've been talking with one of my fellow gamers about starting a X-com like game, think necromunda or mordheim. Soldiers versus aliens, battling it out in city streets, docks, woods, ufo crashes UFO's.... Ect I'm looking for terrain. Terrain that you can hide in, climb around that is quick to assemble... I am a fan of hirst arts, and I think I will look at his molds for UFO adventures. But his stuff is slow to assemble and make and paint. Are there any suggestions for inexpensive, terrain that's modular, quick, sturdy, versatile
  23. So I'm thinking of building terrain "fronts" by taking some leftover foamcore, some photos of buildings, and creating some fold-out support ('L-shaped?) so that they will stand up. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm thinking of building fronts because a) more easily stored b) give me lots of flexibility to create mood c) my GNL mats will be used for layouts. d) faster than building full, playable bulidings I'm wondering about sizing. if I do 12 ft per story, that'll fit on an 8x11 paper? I suppose I should compare it to my existing 2 floor MDF stuff, but different eras. I still have n
  24. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-30687171 My favorite news story of the day, strongly reminiscent of malefactus' amazing terrain project.
  25. The BELVEDERE OF SKULLS is, like so many other magical items and places, the result of an experiment gone awry. Originally, the idea was to preserve the knowledge of wizards and experimenters from the Shadow Guild, a secretive order of necromancers, by preserving the skulls of past members, as a link to their spirits and their accumulated knowledge. A wizard with the proper spells and safeguards could step into the Belvedere and question the masters of yesterday about specifics, spells, and practices, as a research aid. As a starter, several of the elders of the Shadow Guild offered to don
