Anybody else see this awesome DIY purple worm 'miniature'?


Recommended Posts

Not sure I'm keen on how soft model magic stays even when dry.

 

I was at the Hardware store today trying to find a thicker tube to get a 75mm-90mm diamater worm, and ran across this product...

 

Bought an 8' length to make a couple small Dhole worms / Shai-Hulud.

Yeah I'm an avid watcher of both DMScotty and the DMGinfo channels, I've even made a bit of scenery myself.

 

I recommend that anyone and everyone who do anything RPG related watch every single video they have made.  There are so many great ideas in there, not to mention cool end product that is worth watching just for the wow-factor.

I love DMscotty. Even though i don't roleplay with miniatures and such ( I am RPG gamer and tabletop wargame player but I just don't like Minis and props in my RPG games...Yeah i'm weird like that) but the stuff on his Channel is awesome. I might Build me some 2.5D tiles for some Song of Blades and Heroes Gaming.

Do you guys know the difference between this miniature http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/worm/latest/03009 that costs $27.49 and this other mini http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/worm/latest/20018 that costs $6.99? Is it a mistake? The tail alone costs only $3.72.

 

Also looking for a gargantuan purple worm. I think either the DDM one with a larger base or this one from DMscotty will do. The Otherworld purple worm is just too big and expensive. I wonder how big is the purple worm's base from GF9 Purple Worm or if a medium miniature fits in her mouth!

The first worm is from the "Dark Heaven Legends" and is solid pewter.

 

The second is from the "Legendary Encounters" line and is prepainted plastic.

 

I believe Reaper also sells this worm as a Bones mini, for those who want the economy of plastic but like to paint their own.

The Bones worm is totally awesome, especially when you consider the price and the size of the thing!

 

I've seen some of those DM craft videos, pretty nice. Liked the mine cart one, gotta make some of that for Warma-hordes. You know it is a big monster, when it is made like terrain!

      Ok, so next week I'm gonna be replacing the LCD in my printer finally, but I'm also gonna replace the noisy fan on the very bottom of the printer. I finally found a good shot of the guts from the bottom:
       

       
      Now the fan I ordered a few months ago is definitely not the one I need as it's one of the filter fans. So I'm gonna have to order a fan this week. That is why I'm posting here. What fan is good for this?
       
      I've read where someone has modded theirs to run a 120mm fan, I just wanna do a direct replacement of it. One caution I have is the connections. Does the fan just clip into one of the white connectors or is it one that the wires go into the posts that screw down (like on a Ender 3)?
       
      Funny how now I find this site vs trying to find anything these past few months:
       

      (note the fan wire, it clips into one of the white connectors (yeah!!)
      Any help will be appreciated for this.

      How do you make an octopus laugh?  You give him ten tickles!

      Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff.  I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once.  Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving.
       
      You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.

       
      I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned out.  It's not the most accurate, but I'm proud of it.  It definitely has given me greater confidence in my ability to make something out of nothing.

      Hello everyone, the madness goes on. On todays menu we have 44105, Giant Maggots. These Bones Black models were sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      I did a 09282, maggot white and a 09039, pure white glazing on them to give them a transparent and organic aspect.

      So for awhile now I've had this goal, nay, this desire, nay, this primal compulsion to build a boat.  It is not enough to have hand drawn maps, or 2D terrain tiles.  I need a fully functioning 3D boat!  Well, maybe not fully functioning.  But I want to build a cool boat!
       
      I've been working on a nautical campaign full of swashbuckling, sailing, and sea monsters for a few years now.  It's my White Whale project.  Always just on the horizon.  It'll happen some day, but in the meantime, I have a million small projects to complete and extend the chase.  One of which is my desire to build a few different sized ships to enliven any possible naval combat.
       
      I actually attempted this about two years ago, just winging it and making some measurements and throwing them at some craft supplies.  I wanted a cheap option that wasn't too difficult to repeat that way I wouldn't be discouraged from making multiple ships.  So I limited it to cheap crafting materials like foamcore, wooden dials, popsicle sticks, and thumbtacks.  And the result wasn't  bad.  Especially for my first attempt at any kind of terrain building.


      It actually turned out rather nice!  To my surprise.  But I got hung up on mast and sail designs and never finished.

      The wood on the deck had 2x1in grid carved into it for easier D&D use.

      and the figurehead was designed to be modular.

      However, overtime the boat collected dust and little scratches.  I should have given it a coat of mod podge or sealant of some kind, but never did.  And eventually it had an unfortunate run in with an injured owl that we took in for a night.

      Here's the little devil himself.
       
      Anyways, I put this project on the back burner for long enough and feel inspired to dive back in.  Especially with a certain Bones ship on the Horizon that I'm still on the fence about getting.  I was doing some browsing on the web and recently found this wonderful little blog complete with loose instructions and a plan from a now defunct wargamming site.  The blog creator had found the old plan and adapted it to build something using most of the same materials I have already stockpiled. 


      There's a few choices that I like better than my first attempt so I think I'm going to use this as some inspiration as I give this boat thing another go.

      My hold up now is still those darn masts.  The original plan above used wood and required drilling out holes for the masts.  The blogger use foam for his ship and found random bits of tubing to house his masts.  I could try to find something random like that, but I was hoping to find something simpler for easy repetition.  And I would also like to keep the masts loose so they can be removed for easy storage, or to swap out the sails.  Any thoughts?

      Any resources, tips, recommendations are very welcome!  I'll post back here with any updates.

      Greetings all!
      I had a fun idea for a mini that I need for an upcoming game, so I decided to DIY it. So this will be my
      DIY Ochre Jellies 
       
      I’m using white gorilla glue, the kind that foams up, and a bent safety pin. As it begins to dry I moved the “blob” up along the pin to gain some vertical height. The white will be an ok under coating, and I’ll paint it up tomorrow once it finishes drying. I’ll snip the end of the safety pin off before painting too.
