Ale Wagon & Food Table vignette. This is the (3rd) of 7 vignette pieces that will make up the traveling Gypsy market. It is complete except for the edge ground cover work and the addition of some ale mugs sitting on the table...and the final seal spray of the whole vignette piece...The piece is a (4"x6") vignette built on ceiling tile,

At 4"x6" these photos are almost life sized on my monitor. Really, your work is amazing.

Pingo, I really appreciate your comments on my postings. I look for/to feedback comments on all my postings because I do pick up a lot of ideas from what the members say...but...actual feedback comments tend to be scarce...as noted in the past 2 postings...(Fortune Teller posting = 149 viewings & only 6 comments) and (Tarot Card posting = 73 viewings & only 1 comment). Again, I thank you for your active participation in my projects!

Another great piece! Regarding feedback as pertains to this piece, I think the flames for the campfire are a bit too red and you might want to weather the wagon wheels bait, but that is just my two cents American. Having been on forums since the dark ages, I say don't get too disappointed by the lack of feedback, people might be afraid to criticize others work for fear of starting problems

Thanks captenglish. This is what I mean by feedback. What color ink should I add to subdue the red in the flames (yellow or orange)?...Since these are playing pieces (not show pieces); I have tried to keep them very clean (have not done weathering on any of the farmers market booths or the gypsy market items)...but I appreciate you making that point.

 

I am an old head and do not mind criticism (if it is honest and founded)...otherwise I just take what is stated...evaluate the contents and act upon it in the proper manner. Model building and figure painting are like opinions (everyone has their own...usually based upon their bias)...so I tend to approach all such received opinions with an open mind (mine) and try to see what others say from their minds eye!

I must admit I enjoy admiring your pieces of art, but do not have any experience in terrain building so don't really feel I have anything to add in terms of comments & suggestions.

They certainly look fun and very fiddly to build.

I like this scene quite a bit. It tells the story well.

 

For the fire I would stay away from red and go with white in the center where the fire is hottest, slowly fading to yellow and then orange.

Hmm, some feedback for the sake of feedback:

I agree with the red fire and the weathering of the wagon, it looks spookly brand new*.

 

Where are the flageons of ale, btw? What about adding a few broken ones to the lower parts of the wagon, abandoned in a drunken stupor? :)

 

*I recently ran a few sessions where they would have almost exactly stuff like that. In a desert area, sealed off from the rest of the world, there lived a bunch of cultists, living of food-cloths-stuff resetting traps. They did have a lot of mass produced stuff, but were terribly, terribly, bored of the stew and bread provided ;) Most of their stuff looked like it came of the assembly line!

Darsc...Thanks for the great fire pic/closeup...I have tried the white center...I use cotton to form my flames and in this small scale...leaving the center white gave me results that did not look at all satisfactory...the end results looked like I did not paint parts of the cotton...any suggestions?

Dibbler...Thanks for the feedback. In regard to the red of the fire (see my reply to Darsc). In regard to the weathering of the wagon (see my reply to captenglish). In regard to the mugs/flageons of ale (see my original text about finishing touches on the table).

Your welcome.

 

Only suggestion I have would be to try making the fire out of modelling putty. Beyond my skill level though.

 

If you're sticking with the cotton and leaving it plain white in the middle doesn't work, how about giving that part a light drybrush of yellow and then go to yellow and then orange at the edges.

      Clorehaven & the Goblin Grotto, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/printablescenery/clorehaven-and-the-goblin-grotto
       
       
      The picturesque town of Clorehaven  
      A lively tavern, a variety of interesting and useful stores and fine lodgings is all the weary adventurer could ask  for.
      The locals seem polite and friendly. The beautiful stone and wood buildings tell you this small town is prosperous and will someday grow into a much larger city. But under the surface of the town, Clorehaven keeps a dark and foreboding secret.  
      Beneath the neat hedgerows and well-kept homes there lies a sprawling complex of caverns. 
      The deep goblins are a sniveling race of green-skins, plying their trade in the strange flora and fauna they gather from around mysterious pools. 
      Design and build your own medieval buildings using the Clorehaven OpenLOCK system. From simple houses to huge complex structures, anything is possible. 
      Explore the Goblin Grotto using the modular Grotto cavern system. Walls and floors can be combined to create a huge variety of underground caverns or above ground structures. 
      Who knows what’s in store for those above and what lies in the depths below. Clorehaven and the Goblin Grotto - By Printable Scenery - the best 3D printable scenery in all the worlds. 
      All the models from Clorehaven & the Goblin Grotto are delivered as optimized STL files to print on home 3D printers.
      If you take the All-In Pledge, you also receive the free bonus items.   
      Clorehaven Pledge :   Clorehaven is constructed using the OpenLOCK tile system where quality detailed modular and functional buildings can be constructed in any shape and size whilst maintaining the true 1" grid system used for most role playing games. 
      This pledge contains the models to build the Townhouse, Cottage, Homestead, Grand Hostel, Cabin, Tavern, Chalet, Watchtower and Schist Stone Fences.  The Clorehaven Pledge includes the stretch goals labelled Clorehaven.
       As the Kickstarter progresses the free stretch goals will grow and expand Clorehaven from a town into a city.
      Goblin Grotto Pledge:  The free form caverns create natural and expansive cavern maps and tunnel systems quickly and dynamically. The cavern floors are designed to have a comparable 1" grid system for RPG whilst still maintaining the natural rock form.
       PLAY This pledge contains the Moon Effigy, the Goblin Cavern Floors, The Cavern Walls, The Cavern Tunnels, the Cavern Bridge, Rickety Bridges and the Gloom Creeper. The Goblin Grotto Pledgeincludes the stretch goals labelled Goblin Grotto.
       All of our 3D-printable models begin their life as hand drawn concepts. From there we digitally sculpt the models to create high detail STL files. The models are test printed and painted before released so that you know each model from Printable Scenery will print perfectly. 
       Printable Scenery created the OpenLOCK system in 2016. Since then it has become the standard. Its innovative seamless locking system revolutionized dungeon system. Printable Scenery open-sourced the design and it allows for free commercial use to third party designers such as Open Forge.
      The Free Stretch Goals are a big part of our Kickstarters. The more stretch goals we hit, the more models you will get. So join us in this grand adventure and discover the stretch goals beyond.  
       



         The bonus items listed below are free with the All-In Pledge.   
        If you want  an add-on you need to add the amount to your pledge or you can add it in the pledge manager at the end of the campaign.

      1. Select 'Back this Project'  2. Select '$1 or more -  Add-Ons Only' 3. Enter the amount for the Add-Ons.  Once the campaign closes you will be sent a link to the pledge manager to select the add-ons that you picked.

      I didn't see this listed so:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery
       
      I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

      About
      Welcome to our fourth project and one which is a little different to the previous two. While our projects for the resin models will be continuing latter this year and early next, we decided to run a small kickstarter alongside some other projects which we are doing.
      One of the things which our local gaming community has always been big on is the creation of great looking gaming tables and key to that is to have great looking terrain. While there is an abundance of Imperial terrain now available both through various stores and a tremendous amount online, there is often a significant lack of xenos/alien themed terrain to suit the non Imperial factions.
      Sadly terrain is also one of the more expensive things to ship internationally and so has always been a hurdle for many players and groups. With the growing popularity of 3D printers and prevalence of print hubs scattered around the world these hurdles are starting to break down.
      With this project we hope to provide people with some nicely detailed buildings with a strong Space Elf feel. The buildings are quite large and should provide both lines of sight blocking terrain and areas for more mobile units to land on higher ground. The pledge rewards are for the STL files themselves to allow you to go and print your own, there are no physical rewards, however if you need help finding a print hub to get your files printed, we will certainly try and help you with that as well.
      There are three buildings in total, backers pledge for one (AU$15), two (AU$30) or all three (AU$40) buildings. The rewards are for personal printing, not commercial or distribution.

      About
      Mystic-Realm's Quick Cave & Cavern System
      In this campaign we deliver to you a stand alone wall-less terrain system that will work with the terrain you already have.
      QCS terrain is designed to get the tabletop adventure assembled quickly! Each chamber ranges in size all the way up to nearly 8 inches x 8 inches.  Lay down one chamber sections [encounter] at a time as your players progressing though the adventure [fog of war style] or pre build the entire adventure with a quickness. 
      The wall-less design and large pieces make for easy painting, easy transport and playable in any direction.   Playable in any direction? YES! Aside from being able to play off any edge each chamber is double sided! 
      This Kickstarter will include the Base System set 1, Stalagmites set 1, Pools set 1 and the 6 pieces Junctions set 1.  For stretch goals the QCS will expand to include - Twist & Turns set 1 and Bridges set 1.  Each set includes 4 double side themed chamber pieces.  Printing two of each double sided chamber will give you 8 unique playable chambers for each set.  So each set is pretty big and provided more than enough encounters for an evening adventure.

      QCS Stalagmites
