Oh and ...

She didnt know that  6 more where on the way..
 
 

 

 

 

Island Play set


 
 
 
 
(March 2012) I just received as part of a trade this really cool island!!
 
IslandFort1.jpg
 
I know I can convert it so that it no longer resembles a mega bloks toy at all. Not much room on it but that can be fixed up with some simple mods.
 
Has ALOT of potential!
 
IslandFort2.jpg
 
 
Debating weather to sell it as is, or convert it into heroscape terrain, ( and then either keep it or sell it to try and regain some of the money I spent on this fleet ! )
 
 
Also just imagine the battles you can have on this thing ! :)

I decided it would be little trouble to turn it into some cool 28mm terrain.

 

 

 
Left Over pieces
 


 
May 2012
Since Ordered a few Mega bloks ships online, I have had a few left over peices I have no intention of using.
 
My fiance suggested I sell them on ebay to try and recoupe some of the money I spent.
 
So I first took these pictures, for the typical, please by my junk on ebay pictures.
 
MegaBloks1.jpg
 
But it looked to borring, so I tried posing them and making them stand up and...
 
MegaBloks3.jpg
 
One thing led to another, and then after a 15 minute photo shoot we have !!!! DUN DUN DUN....
 
 
MegaBloks2.jpg
 
Red eye Willy makes a mad dash with the treasure as Barnacle Bob tries to stop him with his mercenaries from the Isle of Tortuga that he picked up while escaping the traps left behind by EightBall the one eyed formaly-known-as-pirate-but-now-a-respectable-privateer !!!!
 
Needless to say , they never got uploaded to ebay, and are now hidden in a box under the closet labeled "Spare Screws".
 
She will never find them MUAHAHAHAHAH!!
 
 


 
And, we got married and I still have them hidden in a closet, guess shes never needed spare screws yet :)

Bangerang from Heroscapers.com has his own blog.. and while I was working on the Fools Errand ( Black pearl conversion) He was working on his Undead ship ( Dread Eyes phantom). Super cool guy and does some really neat conversions. He gave me some great ideas along the way.

I read 75% of it. The mast heads were my favorites and i like how your painting skills turn a cheap toy into an inspired terrain piece.

I know this is old but I've just stumbled across it. Gamgan have you posted the templates for the decks? If you still have them can you send them to me please? I'm about to start converting the Junk, The Black Pearl, The Flying Dutchman, The Dread Eye Phantom and the Storm Stalker so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there, forgive me for the late reply but if your still interested I would be happy to scan them for you.

 

Also I recently found a picture of a guy who converted a Black Pearl on Deviant art, instead of going popsicle by popsicle he used veneer to make a great looking deck in what might be a fraction of the time.

I still have 12 ships or so I have not converted and have been thinking about doing them all at once. I can post pictures if any one is interested in them.

 

 

Does this count as a Necro'ed thread? or more like a Davy Jones sort of thing :)

      WIP is here.First 3 pages include lighthouse. Mobile site has been a pain, so I'll add comments later. This was meant to be modular for storage.

      So I got a newsletter with super early (2020) kickstarter tease (image behind the spoiler).

      So, just what happens when you take the desire to paint some sort of armoured vehicle or tank, and a rather fondness for gnolls?  Well, you say screw it, let's see what would happen if gnolls STOLE A TANK!  (and a LAV).
       
      This definitely isn't going to be NATO greens, or even remotely close to JGSDF colours.  Green may be involved at some point, but not any actual real world colouration patterns...
       
      Naturally, ignore the obvious answer of "why not?!?!" what kinds of things give a fox inspiration for this project?
      Ghost In The Shell (the original video/movie) Akira also arguably has some inspiration for this too (both the manga, as well as OAV/OVA) Shenanigans and mischief Various musicians, but Daniel Graves especially (Aesthetic Perfection). A LOT. Borderlands, specifically Borderlands 2  
      Or, in short, I'm going into this with a few ideas, but not necessarily any particular plan...

      ^First up, is the initial haul.  There's more in the mail (Toghra, as well as Reaver of Kargir), and they should hopefully be here in a few days.  So up for contemplating I have two 1:48 scale kits from Tamiya, the JGSDF Light Armored Vehicle (aka LAV) as well as the Type 10 Tank, also from the Japanese Ground Self Defense Force.  Miniature options include two different sets of Wizkids gnolls as well as the Pathfinder Deep Cuts, and for Reaper options we have a Krokuta, Bones Blacktongue, Bones Bloodmane 77236, as well as Bones Gnoll Warrior 77012 (to me he looks likes the Bones version of Boneflayer 14580).  So yeah, seems like an easy-ish task right, take something that's 28mm scale and pair it with a 1/48 scale model.  what could possibly go wrong? 
       

      ^Okay, didn't quite realize the words "challenge accepted" would actually mean I'd have a decent sized challenge on my hands.  Looks like my initial ideas are moderately out the window, or, uh.... Stuck in said window.  Original idea was for dual knives/stabby blades gnoll to be the LAV's driver, with Blacktongue poking out of the gunner's hatch...  And for the tank, Toghra to be poking out of the commander's hatch directing things....  And then Krokuta and others hanging out in the back or off of the back of either vehicle...  I... Uhh... Might be rethinking a few things.
       
      Alternate caption for tank: Here's JOHNNY!  Seriously, I've never watched the shining, but that's definitely the first thing I saw with Toghra's expression at that picture's angle...
       
      ...I probably should have thought about the fact that these vehicles are designed for a nation who's average height is 5'2" (yay Google!) and also according to Google (and the Forgotten Realms Wikia) gnolls are 7' - 7'6".  Hmmm.  Okay, so it's going to be cozy.
       
      Let's start with the LAV, as for some reason that one keeps really snagging my attention, as well as ideas and inspiration...
       

      ^Wait a moment, the Pathfinder Deep Cuts ones are noticeably shorter...  Well now.  He'll fit, more or less, and with some work I could probably get dual stabby guy poking out of the roof....
       

      ^Two-ish hours of arduous assembly later (it's my first time doing up a model kit AND my first time using plastic glue, and there's six bajillion parts for some reason), and we're looking at this.  Dashboard isn't attached, and the bases have been trimmed off of the two gnolls in question in order to better fit them.  This is my basic premise... And where I left off last night.
       

      ^So first off, a basic test fit of the larger, stabbier gnoll.  He barely fits... Good.  Things will get tighter once the hatches go in, but I'll worry about that when that particular time comes...
       

      ^A while with some tools, and we're now here.  Ignore the crooked dashboard, that happens when it's just sitting in place...
       

      ^Currently how things are looking in order for me to mostly fit the driver in.  As eagle eyes might notice, I'm going to have to redo the legs, or more appropriately, the LOOK of legs.  Since they tuck down into an area where they won't be seen, I went for the cruder approach.  Sure, it isn't as pretty, but I did specifically purchase these minis with the impression that there might be some cutting involved...  Odds are though he won't be keeping the axe (that formerly was a polearm or halberd?).
       
      So that's where things are at the moment...
       
      I've also been thinking about how to explain the smaller sized gnoll, and how he's part of the raiding party, since they're known for being more of a cruel society, especially to outsiders.  Well, in short?  I've come up with the basic premise that the smaller ones not only survive through perseverance, but also since they're smaller, they're able to get into tighter nooks and crannies, and therefore picked up skills that would make them not only useful to raiding parties, but also considered an essential, even valued partner.  That's right, they taught themselves... to HOTWIRE VEHICLES.  Sure, there are many ways of building vehicles, but it's nowhere near as much fun as just outright stealing them from someone else, and then using such for their raids, and cause a great deal of mischief and mayhem, potentially being able to raid even more through the initial confusion...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Good day everyone, here are pictures of 77105, Kagunk "Voorhees" the Ogre Chieftain sculpted by Tre Manor. This is the Bones version of the model.
      I added the axe blade on its spiked club, mounted it on a 2 inches square base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
