  1. I've been working on a hugely modular spaceship wreckage system. The base set has 60+ parts but the entire project includes over 150 models. Lost colony: spaceship Graveyard is the ultimate starship wreckage system. It's all about customisation, fallen spacecraft and the fragments they leave behind. You can follow the project at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/saucermenstudios/lost-colony-spaceship-graveyard
  2. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thminiatures/desert-scenery-terrain-for-tabletop-gaming-and-wargames?ref=discovery_category_newest “I’m the last one... and now a silent cloak of darkness has fallen on the small vault in which I found shelter a few days ago! I thought I’d be safe here for a while. But that has turned out not to be true as danger lurks everywhere and nowhere all at once... However, I am the last… and the improvised torch I had made with a scrap of wood and some fabric from my clothes has started to flicker... I’m thus truly the last, and the shadows dancing to the rhythm of the flames across these cracked walls will soon give way to a cold and immobile void! Until then, I’m taking advantage of the final glow of my torch to write these few lines in the small booklet that’s never far from me... I am the last survivor of the mad expedition to this lost, nay, damned city… yes, as in a few hours the sand will have soaked up even the last drop of the blood now flowing from my leg, which was crushed by a large boulder, which I neither have the strength nor the will to move. I’m stuck here and condemned to remain here for eternity, or at least until my final breath... It’s my unbound pride which has led me to this desperate situation with no end possible other than this atrocious and pointless death... yet things started out so well... I had finally discovered the famous City of the Sands, and I naively believed that History would remember my feat as well as my name... the truth is much more cruel! I remain alone in the silence of the night… slowly agonizing... I am… the last… the last!” For this fifth Kickstarter campaign, THM has been burning the midnight oil and is proud to introduce a whole new line: DESERT. A complete line of new products. .STL digital versions to print at home. The possibility to get the All-In box and all Stretch Goals PAINTED. Perfectly scaled for 25 to 32 mm miniatures or simply for the pleasure of collecting, these sceneries will answer to the most demanding among you. THM terrain pieces are cast in the best resin available on the market making them robust and modular. For this range, THMiniatures uses pressure casting, which totally suppresses bubbles and displays the smallest details of these finely-sculpted pieces. Mat from PWorkWargame.com On the right you will find different pledges. Each pledge level has the cost and what items are included. With the exception of the DESERT ALL-IN, the PREMIUM and the 3D pledges, it is not necessary to immediately choose your items when you pledge. THMiniatures will send an access to the pledge manager once the campaign has been finished. This ensures that you can still pick items that will get unlocked during the campaign! instagram: @paintofthegame Mat from PWorkWargame.com
  3. It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment. Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces. It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share. The base is just a piece of log, and the moose is a very cheap plastic toy (I repainted mine), which I managed to find at a local discount store in big buckets of 50 animals for £2, they really cheap and nasty, but actually paint up nicely. Everything else is just standard modeling stuff, sculptamold, static grasses, clump foliage etc. On another note I have not forgotten about or abandoned my Apocalyptic Suburbia Journal, it is still sat on my desk gathering dust. I plan to get back to it in the new year.
  4. New range of scenery by Hammerlot Games. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hammerlot/dark-stones-the-cult-begins
  5. (Yes, the title is a throwback to a contest I ran years ago on here....no I'm not running another one, with today's shipping rates, ugh......) This is where I'm going to work on 3D printed terrain pieces for Star Wars Legion, most of which currently are going to be spaceships. Because why use generic terrain when you can be shooting Rebel Scum hiding behind X-wings and the like? Up first is this: All the FDM bits are there, but most of the resin bits (guns, ramp, interior) are still in a bin waiting to have their supports removed and cured. I figured I should get a thread started as maybe that will get me over that initial hurdle of actually starting. This has all been printed for a week or two and just sitting there....plus I'm gonna need that airbrush booth for other things sooner or later.... I will, of course, be attempting to make this look somewhat like the original episode 5 version, not some retconned prequel sillyness. Now to go listen to some Prism.
  6. Every year I put together a village using as many of my noncombative miniatures along with my Dwarven forge village a few pieces from my parents ceramic village and my old shops from the fire as she bears campaign It may not be finished yet but its a good start to the holiday!
  7. WIP is here.First 3 pages include lighthouse. Mobile site has been a pain, so I'll add comments later. This was meant to be modular for storage.
  8. Just a random collection of recently painted 3D prints. All of these are from a slightly modified Creality Ender-3 A Longship from EC3D: The Wilds of Wintertide The Draken Airship, from Lovecraft Designs Oh, well! Also from Lovecraft Designs The Ferisia Mage Tower:
  9. Started painting my Townhouse from Tabletop World. Scale 75 Inktense Wood.
  10. I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist? A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint! This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
  11. Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100. There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crumb-group/eternal-eight "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. The goal of the game is to capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around. The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."
  12. Stumbled across this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here. Be a different way of putting together woods and stuff for traditional wargaming. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/babbletree/terragon-terrain Pretty much the entire 'leader' page is GIFs so I'm not going to try and copy it over to here.
  13. So, I invoke the 3 foot rule on these; one could go back and forth forever attempting to edge half-timbered buildings. I have been idly working on new scenery since the pandemic, and finished two more buildings plus a well I bought a few months ago. (That’s lightning speed compared to some projects.) These are sold on Amazon by some outfit called Ender Toys. I picked up a group of four, and a second group of two, some fences and the well. If these are an example of what I could get at home, I’m not rushing out to get a printer to wrestle with. The filament lines are pretty distinct close up. However, they are light and didn’t take all that long to paint, so I think they will be fine in a game. I posted the earlier buildings plus some tree bases in this thread: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92205-tree-group-bases/ The overall building collection now looks like this, including a Battle Masters tower: My crystal ball says there is a skirmish game in my near future...
  14. As Halloween approaches the dollar stores are filling up with cheap decorations and spooky bricabrac. Amid all the potential projects a certain reflective skull caught my eye. Not knowing if it would take paint or not I decided to roll the dice on a few. I attached them to some bases, added a bit of sand, and the next day I took them out to prime. They ended up taking primer just fine, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the primer I use. Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of their grey primed goodness. Next up were the basecoats of the skull and "dirt". I didn't get great or even smooth coverage on the skulls, but it was good enough as I was just going to add a heavy wash anyway. The wash was a bit thicker than I wanted but again I figured it was passable and more than good enough to move onto a final drybrush. Not too bad, but there is definitely room for improvement. I guess I'll just have to practice a bit more with my new drybrush. I finally took the leap and tried Uncle Atom's makeup dry brushing technique. Though this project probably qualifies as a failure, I do see the potential. Now all I need is more practice, it's not like I don't have a huge backlog of terrain just waiting to be painted.
  15. Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics. Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's. They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares. Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!
  16. While I love painting miniatures, painting terrain pieces is also fun! I started these two this month and finished just yesterday. I’m considering getting these two pieces again and do a desert themed set.
  17. My project for August (and probably September) is to paint up some of the pile of terrain pieces in my collection. I've been busy washing, scraping mold lines, and priming this week. Some of what's ready: Bones altar, tomb, arch, spider throne and graveyard fences: Pile of stones that came with a dragon (not sure which one). Want to use this as a test piece before I open DDS2. Octopus fountain, a 3d print that was a gift from a friend. I got primer and a base coat on it but wasn't sure where to go from here: Spartan statue (there are 2), Halloween spooky tree, and a creepy statue that I forgot to clean and prime. I'm not sure if it is supposed to lean like that, and if not, if I want to correct that. There will be more later. My first goal is to do the arch and fence pieces. There is one more small fence which was miscast, I am working on it with greenstuff.
  18. I'm sure many of you can sympathise- we see a cool model in a kickstarter, finally get it delivered and then sit flummoxed whilst trying to figure out exactly how to paint said mini. This Mystic Portal has been sitting on my painting desk since last June and I finally figured out what to do with it. Imagine that your players have just finished ransacking your meticulously planned dungeon/keep/cavern system. They've breezed through the encounters, possibly due to good dice rolls or possibly that they're a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos. What you need is one final encounter, one last chance for them to shine or to let them spectacularly fail. There's one last room left and it's securely locked. It'll certainly be magically warded and if I know my players then that's a challenge that they won't be able to pass up. Inside the room is a single portal, made of nondescript stone but with stunning looking gems set into the eyes of it's carved dragons. Surely none of them would be daft enough to trigger an obviously dangerous portal? You haven't met my players My plan to paint one side of the portal the naturalistic stone colour and to paint the other side the fully active, just about to summon a multi headed dragon, portal. This means that when they invariably trigger it, all I have to do is spin it around and savour their worried/confused faces Here's hoping that I can actually do it justice. This is the portal. It's cast in translucent bonesium, which I like because it gives you a choice between taking advantage to it's see through quality or to just paint it like a normal mini. I opted to paint it as normal. There was a slight bit of warping on the base piece, but the old 'boiling/ice water' trick sorted it out in 5 minutes. I'm planning on setting the base on some warning runes, so I used the Greenstuff World Dwarven rolling pin on some foam to see how it would fit onto the pattern. On to the painting! I painted the inactive side of the portal Cloudy Grey 9089 and the active side Pure Black 9037. I'm not sure if I'm going to fuzz up this line or leave it as a stark contrast. I added a black/ green wash to dirty up the stone and added a little bit of orange to the stone to give it a little bit of texture The real work begins! I started blocking in the colours for the active side of the portal. Red, purplish black, white, green and blue. It's almost as if I'm trying to match my half finished Ma'al Drakar My coordination went a bit wobbly with the foo dogs(which are awesome, btw!) so that's where I left it for tonight. We've got a storm coming in tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get some more work done on it tomorrow. Any comments/criticism/suggestions are, as always, warmly received.
  19. There are some things that don't really fit a project and aren't important enough for a thread on their own. I'll put those here. Like this campfire. 3D printed from the Artisan Guild welcome Pack

  21. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rattrap/ratmat-scenics-forest-ruins-wharf-and-warehouse-packs?ref=discovery_category_newest Story I've been running, playing, and creating RPGs and miniature games for decades. After being involved in this world for so long, I recently wondered just how much time I've spent loading, transporting, and setting up terrain for conventions, store demos, and regular game nights. It was...a lot. Sometimes you just want to get to the game! I've also heard time and again that people are interested in RPGs and miniature games, but don't have the time to create or paint terrain or the space to store it. Why should that be an obstacle to great gaming? With ease, cost, and limited storage space in mind, Rattrap Productions is excited to share our RatMat Scenic Packs--full landscapes composed of 2mm punchboard and sized for 25 mm to 32 mm figures. RatMat Scenic Packs are designed to assemble/ disassemble quickly and easily, store in a minimum of space, and cost a fraction of what you could spend on buying or building your own bulky terrain. Our Forest pack will cover an entire 2x2 battle map, yet breaks down to fit in a few small, resealable plastic bags. I actually store 5 entire Scenic Pack sets of in a single cube of a Kallax shelf with room for a few more. I am so excited about and confident in these packs that I wanted to provide potential backers with proof of concept—I created our initial set, the Forest Pack, and paid to have it manufactured and shipped. I wanted to be absolutely sure that our production and shipping partners could handle both aspects in an efficient manner and that the finished product would meet my expectations, as a lifelong gamer with high standards. I have been thrilled with the results. The Forest Pack—composed of the same material and with the same ideals as the other packs—is sturdy, can be quickly assembled/disassembled, and stored in practically no space. The Forest Pack will be an option to pick in our Pledge Manager (though it will ship to backers with the remainder of the packs). RatMat Scenics: Forest Pack I Each Scenic Pack will contain 5-7 sheets of 2mm punchboard. All pieces are printed on both sides and sized for 25mm to 32mm miniatures, with the goal to provide enough terrain per scenario in each pack. This Kickstarter is to expand on the existing Forest Pack, by adding the Ruins I, Wharf, and Warehouse packs. In the Pledge Manager you will also be able to select our already released Forest Pack I (it will ship at the same time as any other packs you select). We're excited by the potential items we may also add into packs along the way, based on engagement and input from our community. If we start going well beyond the stretch goals--don't worry!--there are so many potential packs that can be added to the Rattrap Scenic Packs that you could end up with enough scenic pieces to cover your whole campaign.
  22. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2126421571/harbour-life?ref=discovery_category_newest Story Hello, we are the "Mystery Studio" team, we make high-quality collectible miniatures and terrain mostly on a 28-35mm scale. We always had few fantasy elements on the table. And we decided to create them ourselves. In this project, we present to you a large set of fantasy city port. At the moment, we have already made prototypes and first copies of almost all the miniatures, except for a few. All models are ready for production. We sincerely hope for your support, because the emergence of new, interesting projects depends on the success of this project.
  23. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hammerlot/battleruins-temple-of-the-damned?ref=discovery_category_newest Story We are Ismael and Mishell, in 2016 our passion for scenery and miniatures led us to create Hammerlot Games. Whether we use them in role-playing games, board games, or modelling, we love to collect, assemble, paint, and play with them. Although we have published several projects at Hammerlot Games that present scenarios to set up undead-themed games, we believe that our passion could be used to create a new range called Battleruins, which focuses on new themes and allows the growth of the brand with the new large format that we have called Masterbox. We are excited about the possibilities this new range has to offer and here we are to share it with you! At Hammerlot Games we create and produce high-quality, highly detailed resin design elements for use on any gaming table. Battleruins, our new scenery range that offers various themes in a Masterbox format, is more than just a celebration of our love for scenery, it's our passion for everything related to fantasy worlds. With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also opens the door to other scenery lines of several genres! Legends tell that there is a very old city buried in the vast Kalim'ah desert. A city unknown to the vast majority of mortals, few are those who know its name. Some stories of dark shadows and skeletons that watch you from the top of the great temple, accompany this mysterious city. At the time it was a great city, prosperous and conquering. Now it's in ruins, a place where some bandits and creatures dwell, fighting to survive, looking for meat to satisfy their hunger and hidden treasures to satisfy their ambition. The only thing that remains undamaged over time is the Great Temple, once centre of the city. There are those who believe that ancient and powerful magic protects it, and even claim that it is cursed. SCALE COMPARISON Resin cast of Temple Stone Ground. Size: 180 x 180 mm The central slab of the temple is modular, it can be exchanged for another piece. Size: 57x 57mm Resin cast of a Large Wall. Height: 68mm Length: 130mm The columns can be repositioned on the temple floor. The miniature is shown for scale comparison purposes only. Miniature: Skeleton GW GW Miniatures are shown for scale comparison purposes only This new format gives you the possibility of having all the scenery you may need for your games in one box. With the contents of this box you can assemble multiple combinations. The vast majority of parts are designed to fit together. For example, the walls and columns are the same height, so you can combine them with each other if you wish. At the same time, in the center of the Temple there is a space of 60x60mm to place the Huge Slab with the skull carved in stone or the Guardian Obelisk. Battleruins: Temple of the Damned, Masterbox contains: 1 Guardian Obelisk (5 pieces) 8 Broken Walls 4 Large Walls 8 Stone Roof (for walls) 8 Corners 1 Huge Slab 1 Temple Stone Ground 12 Columns/Pillars 1 Broken Column 4 Stone Roof (for columns) 3 Wooden Bridge Although like many of us, we never have enough! And that is why we also offer you expansion boxes compatible with the Masterbox. You can complete your battlefield with as many boxes as you want!
  24. I have been wanting to build tree bases of several trees each for use at home. (Conventions will probably require individual trees for transport reasons.). I finally got around to starting a few test bases today. This one is approximately done, and uses a base with some extra scenic materials started at a workshop at Gencon last year. The next two are in progress. I need to paint the rocks, add some flock, and then glue down the trees. While I would expect that 10-15 bases will be wanted for at-home gaming, three will have to do for now, and should feature in the current digression project, an attempt to paint/build everything new for a small-ish skirmish game.
  25. So I salvaged this bit of 16×20 particle board from a broken picture frame. I'll be using some of my foam core to make a city square/crossroads board with my foam rollers. Something for city games that isn't too time consuming, but is also good for a wide spread of genres with the proper buildings and scatter The tough part will be steaming off the paper and cutting down the various bits for rolling.
