Always like to see what interesting little details you put into your pieces Catdancer, like the worn path leading to the pool.

Obviously a popular place for adventurers and others.

 

I'm curious though if there is a backstory regarding the origins of the waterfall, as that flat rock above where the falls begins hints at the possibility of a manmade(or other) structure. ::):

Thanks to all the members above for your very nice comments and feedback. I enjoy it, when you like the things/pieces that I post!

 

Darsc...you will never play in any of my games...you either have gotten to know me too well and figure that I have a diabolical mind and a method to my madness or you are one of the most astute persons I have had the pleasure of making friends with...walk through the waterfall and see where it leads!

Well, I'm sorry to hear I won't be getting an invite, but thanks for the compliment Catdancer. ::):

 

I believe that, like you Paul, I was the DM/GM of a group of very clever and challenging players for many years.

I suspect that any diabolical and astuteness development has been the result of a need for us to survive as game masters. :;):

 

And I'd refrain from exploring that waterfall on my own... At least until the rest of the party showed up.

Darsc...Well played my friend!...But if the group is not as astute as you; it has been 3 long days on the road and the fair damsel is tired, dirty, smelly and really wants to feel and smell clean...she heads for the waterfall pond for a quick bath...with her clothes & weapon(s) in a pile at the pond edge...our damsel relaxes and enjoys the cool waters...something comes out of the waterfall and grabs her...muffling her sounds...vanishes back into the waterfall with her as his prize!...How long, before she is missed? Where will the group look for her? All her clothing & weapons are there...but where is she?...Now do you go into the waterfall?

I'm impressed at how realistic the "water spray" at the bottom of the waterfall looks in the photos.

 

I'm also wondering how you actually created the waterfall itself - is it green stuff under there?

Hi Matrissa...The waterfall itself was made out of a clear piece of hard plastic stock (a broken baseball card holder)...measured to size...cut...the top heated so that it could be bent...and grooved with a hot knife...painted with acrylic sky blue paint and stained with (3 shades of artist inks)...dry brushed with acrylic cool white. The foam & mist at the base was created by individual foam core balls glued into place to create the look...washed with layers of white glue and finally painted with acrylic cool white...the mist is created by the addition of "hot stuff" and pulling the melted foam upwards for the desired results.

Hmm. First we'd need to determine if something dragged her away from the pool or into it.

I'd send any ranger or thief types to search around the pool for any tracks leading away from the pool, or any signs of wet ground around the pool where something or someone might have exited the pool.

At the same time I'd have a spellcaster cast light on a stone and have someone with good dexterity toss it towards the center of the pool to see how deep it is and if the bottom is littered with the skeletal remains, armour, weapons, of any previous bathers. Cause that would be a bad thing.

 

Assuming no signs are found leading away from the pool, and no monster is spotted at the bottom, standard operating procedure is for the thief to check out the waterfall, with at least one fighter without heavy armour prepared to follow in as needed, as backup. The rest of the party would be waiting outside of the pool until they get word of what is found, ready to assist, follow, or rescue as required.

 

 

You've got to let us know what your party ends up doing and what happens to them Catdancer. ::):

 With a rope tied to them, so that even if they don't need to have their mangled corpse hauled out of there post haste by the fighter, they can signal what they see by tugging on the rope using the party's prearranged signals... ::D:

Could you possibly share an extreme close up of the waterfall? I think I understand but if I could just get a closer look I'm sure I could get a better sense of the individual bits (especially the foam and mist).

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger.
       

       

      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 
       

       
      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun.
       
      It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians.
      Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects.
       
      I will happily include any monster I think will fit.
      A Tarrasque will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God.
       
      I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your)  fun to create.
       
      EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story.
                This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures.
       
      EDIT: And now it will also include Undead!
       
      ***********
       
      Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now.
      The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees.
      Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance!
       
      He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained.
      Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it.
      With this he had convinced the men to follow him.
      Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it.
       
      They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief.
      He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons.
      Nothing would stop them!
       
      Finally they reached a clearance.
      The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again.
      They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick.
       
      Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing.
      Birds flew away, trees where falling!
       
      Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground.
      A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared.
      One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it.
       
      Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
       
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”
       

       
      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!
