So while I still don't have any Burrows and Badgers figures completed (the Shrew-zerker just needs his base finished, so almost....) I did finish the first 4 pieces of terrain. These are part of a large set of resin cast pieces Jo sculpted for the first Burrows and Badgers Kickstarter called The Ambush the Camp terrain set. Lovely pieces. I went for a simple tabletop paint job, lots of washes and drybrushing. I expect these to see a lot of use in both B&B and hopefully Frostgrave so wanted something I could fix up if it got scuffed or marked up. I may go back and add some bits of moss or other basing once I get all my basing stuff sorted again; its in a bunch of piles from moving rooms.
These are some resin dungeon- and garden-type stone walls. The first are from Ainsty Castings, and they were dreamy to work with. Crisp, flawless molds, tight details, and a paint-receptive surface. The second are from Novus Design Studio, and they ... weren't. There appear to have been many tiny bubbles in the master molds, causing lots of little spherical blisters on the model. The major frustration was that they were water and paint repellent. I had to jump through many hoops to get paint to adhere to their upper parts. Ainsty Castings #1001, 9 cm Dungeon Wall: #1005, 6cm Dungeon Wall Door Section (door is removable and I didn't glue it in) For scale, images with Reaper's 77131, Finaela, Pirate, and Ral Partha / Ironwind Metals Ciera, Swordmistress: Just as a brief break from walls, these are Ainsty Castings #1209, 6cm x 6 cm Dungeon Floor with Small Grill. Details: The Novus Design Studio walls came in a set of six: two each of small, medium, and long walls. Each had a plain stone design on one side and a large skull in an arch on the other. The stones were modeled completely flat. I painted up the skull decorations as if someone was keeping them crudely painted, with cream, black, and red paint. I grew tired of plain grey stones, so added a lot of lichen. The little bubble flaws from the moldmaking process I painted red and figured if anyone asked, they are little fungi.

Oathsworn Ruined Walls
redambrosia posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHere are my Oathsworn ruined walls, from their first Burrows & Badgers kickstarter. They were sculpted by the excellent Jo. The details she put into these are fantastic My favorite is the oven wall. Because it's an oven! Instead of making grey stone bricks I decided to go for tan, as though they were made from sandstone. I also resisted the urge to add plants, sand, dirt, or any other basing materials, because they're going to be used for gaming, so they need to work in any environment situation. I'm not really pleased with the way the final wash of brown over the plaster bits turned out, but not displeased with it enough to want to paint it over again. I finished it, I don't belong in House Procrastius! Here's the oven wall, with the large straight wall. I tried to paint the inside of the oven as though it had ash and burn stains on the stones. And here's all of them on a grid, with Sir Forscale guarding the room.
A couple of stone walls, I don't know by whom
Pingo posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo while doing a few other things I painted up these walls my husband gave me last year. I'm afraid I don't know who made them, only that they are a fairly lightweight resin with an annoying number of bubbles to deal with. They seem to be based on repetitions of roughly one-inch squares. I've spotted repeating patterns of rocks in various places. The smaller one has two mismatched, broken columns at the front. Since the bases didn't match, I treated them as entirely different columns, perhaps put there at different times. One is meant to look like pink marble and the other like red sandstone. I painted up the larger wall as if it were built in three stages: The base of yellow sandstone; then later architecture over and steps in front of the base wall in grey rock; then at some point the doors were filled in with redstone. And then, because I never get tired of this, here's the smaller wall with Verdewrath to show the scale.
Sci-Fi Walls and Floors
Arc 724 posted a topic in Conversions, Presentation, and TerrainI am having some issues finding Sci-Fi wall and floor panels for a diorama I am planning. I have found a few but they are complete systems and I don't think I need the quantity that they offer. I was looking at the Battle Systems Wargaming Terrain, it is very nice but in order to get wall panels i have to or the Â£70.00 complete system. I am looking for just wall and floor piece that i can order in smaller (3, 4 ,5, 6) piece sets as I dont know how much i will need i just know I need them. I will also be converting and kit-bashing so I think I may need the flexibility of smaller quantity and pieces. Anyone have some good suggestions? Additionally, I have ordered some terrain pieces from warsen.al and as I was looking at their site and notice that A LOT of their stuff is photographed on some unpainted wall/floor piece that are just excellent in style. When I emailed Customer Support about it the man didn't have any idea what it was or how to get it... Anyone have any idea's what that is?
Bones Terrain - DDS II Walls
Sanael posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingIn addition to the full-blown Dragons Don't Share set, we also picked up a few of the extra bits of ruined walls, because who doesn't like terrain? Over the course of an absurdly epic combat session of D&D last night, in between preventing a TPK with the help of the Goddess Mishakal*, I painted up these walls. There are a few things I need to tweak, and I plan on adding some flock and talus and so forth, but I'm pretty happy with where this is right now. I've posed my modified Sir Forscale and some Gremlins to model the terrain. I used tube acrylic from Liquitex' "Basics" line. This is the first time I've used artists' acrylics, and it's a pretty interesting experience. Here's a quick color breakdown, keeping in mind that the Basics series is pretty student-grade, so I don't know to what extent some of these are just the names on the tubes, as opposed to actually the genuine pigments used. Regardless, I was pretty astonished by the vibrancy and coverage on all of these. Basecoat overall: apx. 50/50 Burnt Sienna/Primary Yellow (the rest of the table thought I was painting walls on Mars at this point, very orange) Then I took that mix and used a variety of washes with varying additions of Burnt Sienna and Primary Yellow to create some variations in the orange. Next, an overall, pretty thin wash/glaze of about 50/50 Burnt Umber/Phthalocyanine Green went over everything. A touch of the P.Green to thicken the wash back up then went over all the grassy parts and was stippled heavily into the shadows of the stonework. I then started drybrushing the original Burnt Sienna/Primary Yellow mix, stepping it up through yellow several times, onto the higher points. Finally, a really fantastic grey mixed from Dioxazine Purple and Pthalocyanine Green went onto the rubble and into patches on the stonework. Some white went into that mix to hit some highlights. At this point, I still want to put a few more highlights in on the really tippy-top bits, and the ground needs some work as I mentioned, but ultimately this was a ton of fun to play with. I'm looking forward to putting these on the table for a game! A footnote: although I haven't entirely broken myself of the habit, Pingo and like-minded individuals will be glad to know I refrained from using the back of my hand as a palette while using things with names like "Phthalocyanine." *I do mean epic, and I do mean TPK. There were minotaur, a dragon, and bear-riding walrus-men. Walrus-men, I ask you**! The enemies numbered in the dozens, and my cleric was running back and forth between unconscious party members like a madman. We prevailed, but it was a near thing. **The "goo-goo-ga-joob" jokes petered out after the first party member lost 30-odd HP in a single blow.
