  1. I've made a start on a new piece of scenery, a foot bridge crossing a narrow stretch of river. The tile is sized to fit with my other river pieces, but I'd like it to be an attractive little standalone model in its own right. We shall see. The bridge is one that I 3d-printed from a model I found on Thingiverse; I thought it was bigger when I started printing it, but it will do OK as a foot bridge — its total length is about 70mm. The base is 3mm MDF, sealed with black spray primer. The rock formations are DAS air-drying clay, press-moulded into Woodland Scenics rubber rock moulds, and the rest of the groundwork is SculptaMold plaster/paper goop. The steps and flagstones are just pressed and scribed into that once it had firmed up but not actually set hard.

    Balanese Pup

    I was tasked with painting up a little ceramic puppy statue- but I couldn’t help but think it looked like Barong. Especially the way he is portrayed in the Persona games. So, that’s the direction I took him in. The basing is all my construction (it is based on images of Balinese bridges). Anyway, here he is:
  3. 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.
  4. For my birthday earlier this month my husband gave me various terrain pieces, including these resin pieces from Novus Design Studio. They are: 1019 - 28mm Fantasy Bridge; 1052 - 28mm Artillery Position; 1015 - 28mm Fantasy Wall Set; and 1079 - 15mm Stalingrad Red October Factory Ruin, or as I have been thinking of them: the bridge, the cul-de-sac, the walls, and the really cool even if it is a little small abandoned factory. I've never worked with resin before, and this has had something of a learning curve even for the priming. I scrubbed these things well with warm water and dish liquid, but wow, do they repel paint in parts. At first I mixed the paint with a little flow release, but that didn't work out too well. It still beaded up and the dried paint film was soft and susceptible to being picked up by a wet brush, suggesting a weak paint film later on. This is how they looked after a single coat of primer: The walls were mostly okay, with at least one wall having a ferociously paint-resistant top, even after double scrubbing with hot water and strong dish soap. Not even rubbing alcohol could break the beading and surface tension. So I switched tactics. I decided to mix my paint with a medium I have used previously when painting fiberglass sculpture, GAC 200 from Golden Paints which improves adhesion and reduces tack when dry. This is why I blinked when I first saw Reaper paints: The other thing I would do is keep a hair dryer blowing on the paint to dry it fast before it had a chance to bead up. This necessitated the sacrifice of a couple of brushes because they had to be used under warm blowing air. It also required a certain amount of juggling hands. But it seems to have worked, and the paint film is much stronger. This is how the pieces looked after the second coat of primer: And the third coat of primer. I had to stop using the camera's flash because they looked so white they only had a silhouette of the shape. In real life they do not look quite this opaque white: The factory I did last. It looks really cool, but all the detail is at the moment washed out by the white primer. I didn't remove all the flash and I think the hexagonal spaces in the ceiling supports were supposed to be cut out, but there's only so much work I have the spoons for in prep.
  5. Attempted to make two playing spaces of terrain in two nights for an Infinity tournament at my FLGS. While its not finished by any means I thought I'd share some pictures. To avoid a mile long post, you can find a blow by blow over at my blog. As the great MonkeySloth says, the first step is planning. Went back to my drafting class and made a scale layout. IMG_1843 by LittleRukh, on Flickr Base is 48x48x1/4" plywood. Foam is 1/8" "fan fold" insulation. IMG_1846 by LittleRukh, on Flickr Tunnels in place, starting on side one of the stream. IMG_1849 by LittleRukh, on Flickr At this point it was 3am, good enough for a quick base coat. IMG_1868 by LittleRukh, on Flickr Got out my best brush for this. IMG_1870 by LittleRukh, on Flickr As the FLGS played it. photo (42) by LittleRukh, on Flickr I eventually plan on adding a building to the flat spot on the lower right. The water will get some large rocks for cover. The bridge will get an asphalt road. The hills will get some pipe and other bits of construction stuff. I'm sure some shrubbery will be involved too.
  6. Now accepting suggestions for a better name. Attempted to make two playing spaces of terrain in two nights for an Infinity tournament at my FLGS. While its not finished by any means I thought I'd share some pictures. To avoid a mile long post, you can find a blow by blow over at my blog. Company I work for sells valves for water distribution. They come anywhere from smaller than 1" to larger than 48". A recent batch came in with 1/8" Masonite for protective covers. IMG_1856 by LittleRukh, on Flickr Made some bridges with notches in them so they would secure to the platforms. IMG_1858 by LittleRukh, on Flickr Had some heavy duty cardboard tubes laying around so I made legs to give the appearance of floating/high elevation. IMG_1860 by LittleRukh, on Flickr How I envisioned a partial layout. IMG_1861 by LittleRukh, on Flickr This is what happens when you hand over terrain without instructions. photo (40) by LittleRukh, on Flickr Oh well, they had fun. I hadn't started painting it so no harm done. Right now my plan is to do the underside and legs Chrome. The surface is textured so it will get grey with black wash. I may do some details but my free hand isn't very good.
