  1. Well, awhile ago I started making some terrain for my Frostgrave Dark Alchemy solo mini campaign. Longish story....Then squirrels happened. I then decided not to wait to finish my terrain, and just go with what I had made and not painted. I'll nether confirm nor deny that I also used Lincoln Logs to make wall to fill out that first board (and there are no picture left to prove it). That round went well. I then managed to finish up building the hirst arts wizard tower in a ruined form. Next round went way worse... TPK. You take 4 character and your wizard or apprentice. They all got take
  2. Hello all! Here are a few pics of my second official terrain project. It's a castle/boss chamber, I suppose. I didn't really have anything in mind when I started building it; I was just fooling around with my new molds, tinkering with dry stacking. This eventually emerged. I built it using Hirst Arts molds and bits from both Reaper and Mini Monsters. The Reaper parts are Large Sarcophagus (77540) and parts from Magic Treasures II and III. I made the flags from salad container plastic and various bits; one of these days I would like to go back and paint more detailed flags and repla
  3. Used mold #344 from Hirst Arts to craft walls for my Zombicide: Black Plague game to take my game 3D. Going to try it tomorrow night after we meet friends to decorate Christmas cookies with the kids.
  4. Well, I had started Hirst Arts ruined field stone tower in an attempt to build terrain for Frostgrave. After building some of the wall section, I had a bit of a Cat-trastophy with them. My cat decided those pieces would look better on a cement floor... in pieces. Since I posted in the September goals thread that I want to try and finish the building of the tower this month I thought I would post where I was in my progress. Be warned, my skill are very lacking, as there are several uneven level, but it is a ruined tower. There are going to be three level inside the tower th
  5. Sculptor: Bob Ridolfi I fished this cute girl out of the Box o' Goodwill from the Reaper forums, so it's only right that she make her way back to another forum member as an exchange mini for Secret Sophie 2016. Tricksay wanted to receive "open to anything"; I love when people pick that, because I can just paint whatever I feel like. Thanks to Bonwirn for giving me a bunch of Hirst Arts blocks to make the diorama out of. After I took these pictures I realized: OMG, you can't even see the rear half that I spent so much time on. Despite the chance of ruining the mini, I carefully drilled
  6. I ended up with a bunch of extra crates from one of my Hirst Arts molds, and decided to experiment with wood the other night. So here you go! In case anyone's curious about the recipe, here's what I did. Everything but the wash is done with dollar-store craft paints, that don't have great coverage, so this might not be the best plan to try to recreate with good paints (at least without testing it out first)... Basecoat with Burnt Umber Heavy drybrush with Bright Orange Light drybrush with Cashmere Tan Very light drybrush with Antique White (a sort of yellow-tinted off-white colour) Was
  7. Here is what I've been working on since the end of June. It's the Hirstarts Corridor set (Space Hulk). Got the first game on it today, as well (a loss to my step son). https://goo.gl/photos/LZkoeDSVBAUPzXBL7
  8. Hi, I made my first HS project, bricks are really great and its fun to build with them.
  9. Here are photo I thought I'd post of more minor projects I finished up. The one on the left is a Hirst Arts crate beside the bones 2 crates. I probably could have defined the bones ones more but they were all quick paints. They both have different feels. So I think they are both useful for variety. Thanks for looking.
  10. OK, I haven't been posting a lot of miniatures lately. Mostly because I haven't been finishing much. But I also haven't had access to the camera I was using and my cell phone camera stopped working. So I broke out my camera I tried to get working before and could never take decent photo's. So here I go trying to get it to work again. Here are some barrels a painted in between working on other projects. One is the small barrel from bones 2. The next is a barrel I got from somewhere sometime ago. The last is a hirst arts barrel from one of the molds. All Painted with the same colors.
  11. The Breach The last year has had its ups and down for the Gnomes of the Stonehavens. The Wyrmgear Initiative (as it has become know) has been very successful, and Wyrmgear and his later created brethren rule the skies. This has kept the Goblinoid hordes in check. On the down side, repeated attempts at formal alliances with the Dwarves (be they the nearby Dwarves of Stonehaven, the distant Scrunts of the territory of Olley, or the mighty clans of the Oathsworn Dwarves) have thus far lead to little more than non-aggression pacts. But unknown to the Gnomes, the Goblins have been much more
  12. Bonwirn was kind enough to send my husband and I some furniture and accessories from his Hirst Arts molds. So I'm painting them up now Doing basic wood coloring right now. None of these are done yet
  13. I have been a bit busy the past few weeks and sadly got side-tracked from getting a project in for Starship Superstar. I have been playing with plaster Lego aka Hirst Arts. The plus side is my Reaper Minis have a new home to play in. Well home isn't the right word...let's call it a domicile. More pictures on my blog for those interested.
  14. I'd posted a few pics in my combined WIP as I was figuring things out, but now that I'm (finally) gearing up to really start working on my diorama for the 2014 Year of the Giants contest, I guess it's time to start a new WIP. The idea I'm working with for this diorama is set in the same (loosely defined) world as my Wyrmgear diorama from last year. A slightly steampunky fantasy world. So far we have seen the Gnomes (specifically the Stonehaven ones) as a faction, obviously technologically advanced enough to create automatons and even Wyrmgear. Now we get to see one of the forces they must
  15. This was my Summer Exchange figure I did for Kharsin. He received it on Friday but said it might be a while before he could post pictures, so if I had any to go ahead and post them. These pictures were taken fairly quickly more as reassembly insurance, in case anything came apart during shipping, so no fancy backgrounds or anything. Kharsin suggested "something pretty" and that he liked display bases. If you look at my usual work you know "pretty" usually isn't part of it, but I gave it a go. I picked out Gabriella as she's a nice feminine fig, but in full plate, so I wouldn't have to
  16. Not sure if this fits the show off section so I posted it here instead. I have been making a farm board for my two sons for a few months and it has coincided with painting some Bones so I thought I would show off the creation here. Defending the house from untold nasties. The people inside the house. Sleeping quarters And a full overview complete with a car!
  17. Update 12/16: Check the latest post for pics of Dwarves, Sheep, and Pack Mules. So tiny! So, I'm not so good at updating things, but here's a thread for my random progress reports as I feel the need to post them. What got me started on this is my recent acquisition of some 6mm figures (from Baccus 6mm in the UK). Here's a pic of some of them primed, sitting on one of my many HA in-progress pieces. The 6mm figs are from the Dwarves line by Baccus, the lower large figure is Reaper's Mad Scientist (Female), the upper large figure is Darksword's Female Mage on Stairs (they are included for
  18. So, Bonwirn and I get together every so often to play with our Hirst Arts molds, and generally hang about. We'd like to open up to rest of the community, and so I am offering up my place for a Southeastern Meetup/Casting Party. It's a glassblowing studio outside of Athens, GA, so if you're nearby*, you should come on out! This isn't necessarily limited to HA stuff; if you want to paint you should come too! If you just want to come and hang out, that's also cool. We're planning on one of the first two weekends in August, but have not set a firm date. Is anyone around interested in j
  19. So I was bored last night and nobody was posting on the boards fast enough to stave off my boredom, so I decided to peruse the List of Craig. Normally I look at the free stuff and go "oh a piano" or "3 tonnes of field stone". But as I said I was bored, so I started looking on other categories: Tools, Farm Equipment, Arts and Craft. And what do I spy posted on Saturday? Hirst Arts molds!! What is this?! Could it really be?! 10 molds for less than half their retail cost? They shall be mine. I pick them up after work tomorrow. Oh the things I shall build.
  20. Prior to my move (in February) I'd stalled out on my last terrain project, a modular space ship built from Hirst Arts blocks that I'm making for a friend. Since then, I've got no mojo for that project, and rather than waste the relatively good weather we've been having, I've been using the time to cast fantasy blocks, particularly from some of the newer molds that i've picked up. The move (from an apartment to a house) means that I've finally got some real space to store terrain projects after they've been built. In addition to building myself a modular fantasy set of cavern and dungeon pieces
  21. So, I've started making a new display case for my mini's, a 16"x20"x1.25" shadow box, with a display shelf made out of HA blocks. This is still very much a WIP, but I'm eager about it. Questions, comments, criticisms, et cetera welcome. Yes, I know that one column is messed up.... I will be fixing that, and hopefully making another row tonight. -Dave
  22. Hey folks, sometime in the near future i plan to make a series of shrines for the major gods in the D&D universe(my experience is limited to 4th ed lore). Each shrine will be around 2*2 to 4*4 squares large and primarily feature a statue in the likeness of said god. By divine guidance, I have already selected and aquired most of the miniatures from Reaper and I have msot of the building blocks I think i need from Hirst Arts. My question to the Council of Brushlords and Brushladies would be regarding the look of these statues. Im looking to get a reasonable variety in the look of the sculpt
  23. So, if you don't follow the HA forum, Bruce has just completed 4 new molds to decorate all those awesome building you make. Check out the thread at http://hirstarts.yuku.com/topic/5076/The-Inn-Market-Accessory-Mold-Thread (3 molds, bars, tables, chairs, bottles, buckets, ohemgee a lot) http://hirstarts.yuku.com/topic/6077/1-square-wood-floor-mold (4th mold, floor tiles) Pages 21, 24, and 26 have pictures of most of what goes in to the molds (first link, second link is only three pages). I cannot wait to get my hands on these. -Dave
