I bought in on the Kickstarter for the board game, Planetarium.
It's a great game and the family loves it. But we want real planets to spin around the sun.
So, I have taken it upon myself to make some. I know, shocking.
Here's the game:
The game came with slotted stands for upright cardboard tokens for the planetoids. But they are flat and hard to see on the board if parallel to your view.
Where to start?
First and quickest thought was to take a ping pong ball or four and just paint the planetoids on them as seen in the tokens. But where's the fun with that.
Besides, I wouldn't be Thrym if I didn't use bark or some other basing material. Here we go!
Ping pong balls ... close:
These are "Practice" Golf Balls available at my local non-Dollar Tree dollar store. They come apart ... so expect to see them again! WOOT!
But, the first one I want to make is going to a version of Planet B a turquoise colored planetoid.
Shown above and here in the Player Mat:
So, I started with the mini-wiffleball and glued small pieces of bark to it.
And then spray primed it gray:
Enjoy and Stay Tuned!
This is the third of a series of five dragons I painted in the last two months. (Well, technically one of them isn't a dragon.) It's the Shadow Dragon, one of the two smaller (only about elephant size) dragons from the first Bones Kickstarter set, "Here Be Dragons," sculpted by Sandra Garrity.
I painted it up not quite knowing where I was going, starting with aquatic thoughts, adding stripes, and then going over the cliff into total madness.
