  1. "The deep underground ocean known as the Shadow Sea has held mysteries for thousands of years, remains of ruined civilizations that built advanced cities and technological wonders in the abyssal depths. As the world of Theira falls into chaos, small bands of adventurers and mercenaries dive into the waters of the underground sea to hunt for the legendary ruins of Darkstar Rift for treasures and artifacts that can help their forces survive the cataclysm of war." https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/unchartedrealms/419486578?ref=lq05fa&token=16233964&fbclid=IwAR03tj5q6Y4pjx81sWjCuubFjOzAGQK4TQ9f_XkZvd4Q4yeWuq7jZEAwXTE
  2. This KS launched yesterday, and is already funded(with two stretch goals unlocked)! 😄 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/galladoria/factions-of-galladoria Factions of Galladoria gives you a set of scenery pieces themed around four different factions: Humans, dwarves, elves, and orcs! They all have their own, unique takes on beds, tables, chairs, chests, and even siege engines! Ever wanted to make a dwarf specific tavern? Well, here are beds, tables, chairs, and more for that. How about an orc specific barracks? This KS has got you covered! I'm rather excited for this KS. The stuff is made in the US, so supply chain issues shouldn't be a problem. And there's a lot of cool stuff here at very good prices! At the lowest (unpainted) pledges, it's between $1.1 and $1.5 per mini in each accessory pack and $10 per siege engine, which is already decent prices in my personal opinion. But if you go for the "unpainted all in" pledge (8 accessory sets and 4 siege engines) of $120, it's only 75% of that, which averages out to about a dollar per mini in the accessories, and $7.50 per siege engine! 😄 $120 nets you the unpainted version of everything in the picture above, btw! Plus any non addon stretch goal stuff! But there are a bunch of other options as well! It all looks really good as well, and each accessorry set has both regular beds and bunk beds, which I find really cool! 😄 Oh, and it's possible to get everything hand painted as well! Current stretch goals map: Btw, this is Galladoria's new KS campaign after they cancelled the fortress one, which was just too big of a project. Also, I'm not affiliated with them, just very enthusiastic! xD
  3. First of all, I have lots of people to thank for inspiration. This particular piece, the dilapidated fort, was directly taken from a project at Onyx Workshop. My other major inspiration is Le Golem Qui Reve, a French fellow who has been doing Sandgrave for a number of years. Check out his amazing blog. (If you're going to cite sources, it's not plagerism, right?) This one was done using Hirst Arts Egyptian moulds: Floor tiles, sandblasted pyramid and regular walls. My go-to colours are P3 Rucksack Tan for the base, washed with GW Seraphim sepia. The bricks are done using a variety of tan and off whites available at the dollar store. The whole thing is drybrushed a cream, then flocked. I use regular plaster of paris and wood glue, with Aileen's tacky craft glue for the flocking. I use so much of the sand base I had it custom mixed at the hardware as a gallon. House paint stinks for minis, but it covers sand really well. The sand is locally collected from my yard. To create the chipped look, I used a dull hobby knife blade and hacked at the wall. I'm very happy with how this looks and it has become my new way of making convincing ruins. The ladder is a leftover piece from an MDF kitbash. Each of the straight blocks is 1" long. The base is a piece from Charlie Foxtrot out of the UK. He's an amazing guy to purchase from. I believe it is from bases set one. I will admit I screwed up when I made it, it should be 5 inches long to accomodate a full unit for Wargods, which brings us to... The minis are Crocodile Games. They have shields, and as part of my spring cleaning of the paint desk, they will soon receive them. The metal (or bones) mummy warriors complement this range very nicely, being comparable in size and asthetic. If you aren't fussy about duplicates, choose the bones version. The metal version seems to me like it could use a new mould --some of the detail seems shallow.
  4. High Kingdom Village An entire town, if it fits the era you play in.
  5. The Town of Grexdale - A Medieval Tabletop Town A town. I passed on their last one and will probably pass here as well. IIRC the prior campaigns ended up in the late pledge section of MMF.
  6. Got some pics of some terrain I painted up over the past few months which were still accessible. A good chunk of my collection is currently packed away so just some pieces that I'd left around and snuck into the various christmas stuff around the house. Warlord/Italiari Stone Bridge A rather nice kit that is somewhat irritating to get together correctly with the various parts that need to slot together...just 6 pieces, 2 each of 3 different parts (Sides, and two parts for the top and underside of the bridge). The ridge in the center of the tops of the sides is one that is a pain to get any of gone, but at the same time, if you do, you end up removing all of the detail that makes it look like stonework. The detail on the top and bottom of the bridge is also shallow and rather difficult to do much with for drybrushes unlike the sides of the bridge. It's still a nice looking kit with rather minimal issues and most minis stand just fine on it at any point. Tabletop Workshop Dark Ages Chapel Another good kit, though I think that there were issues with the one I got. It has a sculpted interior that I wanted to set the kit up so that I could access it...but the inside was poorly cast with large areas that would have required extensive work compared to ones I've seen in various YouTube videos over the years. It's also one that I couldn't find anyone selling it in the US and needed to pay a decent chunk more for shipping from the UK...I'd love to get their other kits, but they're not worth the cost and international shipping for them. Alicorn Statue I'd found a decently scaled unicorn/pegasus toy at Dollar Tree a few months ago, sold in 2 packs with one that was the right size to repaint for use as a mini and a giant one. I just found a cheap wooden plaque in the same store for the larger one to use as a statue. I have two more that I need to grab a base for because they aren't restocking the oval ones and the others would work well for a paired one. I've been using the smaller ones as part of a Dragon Rampant force. The mini included for scale is Human Druid, Asandris who is painted to work with that force which is composed of, mainly, Anhurians...most of which are put away due to not yet having everything back in place after replacing carpets. Statue of Man-At-Arms Another Dollar Tree thing with their He-Man toys, just a bit to large to fit in with the majority of my stuff, so I shaved off the more techno bits from his gear and painted him as a statue, gluing him to a wooden disc from the craft store with a bit of painted card as a plaque on it. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a very clear pic of the front, camera just wouldn't focus right. Sacred/Memorial Stone Just a quick terrain piece that I put together when I needed a rune stone or similar immobile piece for a couple scenarios. It's, mainly, foam that's been heavily textured and coated with plaster while being attached to the 2" Nolzur's bases. While I loathe those bases for minis, I've found that they work great for smaller scatter pieces that don't need to be moved around the table that often. Barrels A rather quick paint and base of some craft store wooden barrels, again on a 2" Nolzur's base. I needed something to mark for a supplies objective in a game and just tossed it together when I needed it. I'm probably going to be making a few more similar ones. Rustic Cabin This is completely scratch built save for the shield which came from a Fireforge Games: Foot Sergeants kit (Same as the shield on the Sacred Stone). I started out making this following the tutorial from Mr Waaagh Media on YouTube's channel with a few changes to fit most of my minis, then decided to upgrade the design with wood and add a fireplace...which led to making a removable roof and playable interior. The tutorials on the channel are decent, but aimed more for beginners and I tend to see a lot of them and things to heavily upgrade them into things that look a lot more a part of the table. The Old Promontory Garden Ruin This started with the structure on top as something from Dollar Tree, it was, originally, just a brightly colored lantern, but the shape reminded me of the old garden aviaries, so I removed the light and started building up from the base to create something that would look like it fit and in the old, abandoned feel for it while retaining some playability and something that would work well as a piece to display some minis on at home. It also pushed me to experiment with other options for larger rockwork as this was, started and largely built last year during the major lockdowns and I ran out of the thicker foam that I would have turned to for it, and used layers of foamboard from Dollar Tree for it. Largely shaping it after assembling the general form and adding a lot of texture work to try for rock striations with patching compound and small stones worked into it to add more to it as I went. I think it ended up working extremely well and I'm considering other formations and structures that might work as an addition to this since I have another of the lanterns that I haven't done anything with yet. Marsh/Swamp And two large terrain pieces that I put together relatively recently. They're designed that I can hide a bit of the edges of the two with the bridge from earlier as part of a setup in a few ways for a bridge across a swampy/marshy area or be used on their own or individually in parts of a board. I started with a large, but rather thin plywood circle from the craft store, then I used the card from a larger box of soft drink cans that I cut to form the basis of the drier areas, then I worked in larger stones and patching compound to smooth things out, worked a few dried and sterilized twigs and some different sands glued over it before painting it up. The lilypads are made by taking a 3x5 card, painting it up with a mix of different greens, letting it dry and going to town with a hole punch before using scissors to cut a notch in them and putting them ontop of the polyeurethane gloss that I used for the water with a tiny bit more gloss ontop of them. I still have a pile of them put away for later use from the card.
  7. Somewhere along the line, I stopped picking up the brush. It's been about two months and it's taken me a couple weeks of going, "I should really..." to finally actually do something. It just kind of hit me one day that I needed to paint this. So I went out to the garage and dug through my Bones 3 and Bones 4 stash until I found one (I originally had plans for two). I washed it up a few days ago and it sat on the kitchen peninsula waiting for me to get back around to it. I finally gave in last night instead of watching reruns. I didn't do a whole lot: just filled a well in my pallet with water and mixed in some Grey Liner and Wash Medium, and got cracking with a brush! In a freak occurrence that should send me scrambling for a stack of lottery tickets, I made almost the exact perfect amount of slop to cover the entire set! There was just a smidge left over. After that I started pondering color options. I knew I was going to be using my craft paints for this, so I'm pretty limited at the moment with only a couple handfuls of options (most of which are some shade of brown or grey). A few minutes later I decided that my love for Reaper's Redstone Triad by my guide. There are plenty of grey stones out there, and I like to do things a little differently from time to time. Even though my colors aren't quite good matches for the Redstone, I can get the same feel: Chocolate Cherry, Burnt Sienna, and Terra Cotta (I think). So the Chocolate Cherry base coat went down on the stones. I finished the night about two hours in, with all the standing stones (and most of the detritus) coated and the rest given something for a primer coat. I'm calling it a win. With nothing but "The Curse of Oak Island" on tonight, I managed to make it "two in a row!" Nothing much to say. I just grabbed my drybrushes and got to it. Burnt Sienna serves as the midtone and Terra Cotta is the highlight. I'm a little heavy on the highlight, and a little light on the midtone. After that it was Medium Foliage Green for the base. I really need to get the "Dark" and "Light" shades for that. Another couple hours and I'm over halfway to the finish line. I think I'll mix some blue into the Foliage Green to darken it up and use that as a wash on the base, and try some yellow or one of the lighter browns to do a drybrush. Less than five hours in, and nearly finished. It's nothing special, but it works. Thanks for stopping by!

  18. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sawant3d/hidden-places-amazing-3d-printable-scenery There are currently about 150 EB all-ins for 29€ left. Otherwise, each of the sets is available for 7€. I'm currently printing the test file, I will post pictures when its done and not a total embarrassment for my printer.
  19. Hey folks! We're super excited to share the next exciting chapter of Flatline City! Flatline City: Second Wave is a HUGE new, city building terrain set with a core set of 110+ city building models. This anticipated expansion to Flatline City can be used as standalone terrain or combined with the original Kickstarter release for incredible modular city building. As requested by the community, this set includes a huge range of upgrades and features that compliment and expand the original Flatline City terrain series. There are 330+ additional models available as stretch goals and more to be added as they all unlock! You can follow the project here.

  20. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/saucermenstudios/flatline-city-second-wave This should make great terrain for many SciFi skirmish games. The EBs are gone, so the all-in is 79 AUD.
  21. These are from a 3d printable Rocks and Plants crowdfunder I backed last year. The company is called Print Your Monsters, and I've been very pleased with how they come out. The base of each flower is ~30mm.
  22. Now that my Ghost Archipelago project is complete it's time to start a new one. Like just about everyone else I have quite a few projects ready and waiting (maybe even too many), but after such a long project containing so many animals and monsters I wanted something different. If you were following my Ghost Archipelago project you may have seen a large assortment of random figures in the background of some of my pictures. That collection is comprised of figures that have been sitting on my desk for far too long, well that and my latest picks from the last box of goodwill. As you can see it's a pretty varied assortment. It's also not a crazy amount either, just a nice (hopefully) quick little project before jumping into something heavy again. Wanting something sci-fi after all those fantasy creatures I grabbed the two identical space soldiers. Unsure what I really wanted to do I played around with the idea of a straight policeman/peacekeeper scheme. Slowly that morphed into a peacekeeper/private security group based around a mining or space operation. With that in mind I thought blue armor with an almost orange jumpsuit would make for an interesting security force where both colors could make sense, even together. Looking at them basecoated I can't help but think of some of the X-men color schemes from the nineties. Certainly odd but not exactly terrible; the colors give them just enough personality that I can see using them for a lot of games/encounters.
  23. The name and colours are from a real French cafe I used to go to in CA. I added a bedsheet rope made from PVA-soaked paper towel to one of the windows and a zombie trapped inside the building.
  24. I put together this Barrow from xps foam and a decopage cardboard treasure chest lid. I used a greenstuff world roller to texture the doorway and landing outside. It is all stuck together with super glue. I was keen to make sure that there were flat areas for based minis in the front and at the rear. My minor mistake was making the rear plinth/hill a bit too narrow after sticking on the rear wall section, hence cutting out a slit. When all the glue has dried I will prime it with a mix of mod podge and black paint. Then I will flock the top. I need to decide whether to make this snowy or green. I think that snow will cover more model making sins...
  25. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iain-lovecraft/treasure-island-1 Another project by Iain Lovecraft. Excellent minis and terrain files for a very reasonable price.
