Aw crap, I had a bunch of other junk on the table so I didn't take a photo. :down:

 

And now I've shuffled them off to their storage bags.. (Yep, I tossed them in a bag, just like they did in the video!)

 

But if you guys ask really nicely I can pull them out tomorrow and set all 5 sets up again. Though I got the Dark Grey infused, so there isn't much to see detail wise. But I will say there was a lot more dungeon there than I expected. I still think it's a good assortment for a full day's worth of gaming. My husband feels that the 5 sets it's about 5 encounters worth of dungeon, with that being about 2-3 nights of gaming. We shall see... well as soon as we find friends to game with down here in Louisville. ^_^

 

And I'm loving them so far. Nice and heavy enough to not knock over easily, but durable so I can let some kids or convention gamers at them. :lol:

I ordered 3 unpainted sets, 4 add-ons (diagonal pieces, circular pieces, dungeon dressing, floor pack), and the paint kit. They were well packed:

The paints come in large 4ox containers; hopefully one set is enough to paint all of this!

Here's a quick castle layout I put together. This used roughly 65% of what I have:

Here's a smaller example of what they look like after I've started painting them:

And lastly, a close-up of a painted piece:

To give a sense of size, the general walls, floors, corners, etc. fill most of a 30qt Sterilite storage bin. The smaller dungeon accessories, doors and other misc. pieces fit in a 7qt Sterilite storage bin.

 

If you want to do larger open rooms, the floor pack is a must. I haven't experimented enough yet to get the hang of using the diagonal and circular pieces effectively.

Woo -- received my shipping notices at 9:25 and 9:37 this morning (two boxes, 65lbs total).

Hoo -- delivered at 10:41 this morning (left on secured stoop).

 

How to explain to my three-year-old that she needs to walk upstairs on her own, because each of the boxes weighs more than she does?

So anyone know why some spots are slick? Even though the factory claimed there was no release agent used, fult the urge to try washing the test piece. After I took the picture, I scrubbed with dish soap and a toothbrush, but the gloss and matt variations were still there.

Thankfully the Behr latex paint I tested is holding well and not tacky after 18 hours.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
