4TH BOOTH...This is the 4th open air booth in my Renaissance Fair project.

 

DATA...This is a basic curio shoppe...scratch built on ceiling tile...size (8" x 5")...again shown from concept drawing to complete finish...The Reaper figure is just to show the scale of the finished piece.

 

Again...I hope you like this little piece...I also hope that you are not getting bored with these pieces (there are 6 more varied pieces to go).

That is one of those charming pieces that is so rich in details that something new is discovered with each visit. The modeling, painting & your LOVELY base are all BEAUTIFULLY WELL DONE!

The Lady Proprietor is a WONDERFUL accompaniment to the Curio Shop...brushwork & palette are GORGEOUS. My own version of that miniature is Fast Flo, whose Home for Wayward Girls is famous through out my little corner of (sur)reality.

Lovely work as usual Catdancer. You must have a lot of fun looking for and building all those little knick knacks filling your shops.

Speaking of which, where did you find that African looking mask on the left side of the booth, and the two figurines on the top shelf? They must be tiny.

Also the heraldic banner to the left of the booth, is that an image cut from paper, cause it has the appearance of being cloth, and if so I'm wondering how that was done.

 

Last question. I don't recognize that Repear mini, well done on her by the way, I quite like it and wonder if you might still have the stock number for her.

Not bored at all! I love the creativity, the atmosphere and the sense of place. You've done a great job adapting beads and tiny doodads into props in these wonderful booths.

 

I also appreciate that you've been showing your construction diagrams. I enjoy seeing how people make things and make them work, and these might help anyone sparked by your creations who might be interested in trying their own hand at miniature architecture.

Hi Darsc;

 

To answer your questions...The African looking mask was a pair of copper earrings for pierced ears that I picked up at a local mall shop in a store that sold Africa type of items...the 2 figures are HO scale railroad figures that I painted as statues (one as marble and the other as bronze)...all banners and signs on all these Ren Fair signs are paper (some on standard paper and some on cloth texture paper)...The Reaper figure is the madam (Townfolk Set #02655)......As always, thanks for your comment(s) and feedback.

Paul the coolest thing I learned from you was to keep an eye out for cool beads.  Now mind you I am a big, tough, generally angry looking guy, so when I go into a bead store run by a dainty elderly woman and she asks me if I need help (aka what are you doing in my store you big dummy) the whole situation is fairly comical.

 

Now I need to look at earrings too, bah why am I buying earrings and beads! And my wife jokes about me being  something of a "fairy".

 

Seriously though I can't comment on all your posts and updates, I love your stuff!  It is inspirational and clever, you and Malefactus are some of my favorite victims for "idea theft".

Bah, just say you are buying stuff for your wife, and they'll become real helpful!

 

I also love the stuff that Paul, Malefactus, and you post. Great inspirational pieces and amazing little worlds.

Hi spencerjohn;

 

May I suggest that before you go to retail stores/outlets...check out the thrift shops/second hand stores and 99 cent stores in your area...most of these have bins for costume jewelry and beads. I have found great bargains at these type of outlets for jewelry items, bead items and floral items...Just a suggestion!

      Hello people! i would like to share with you an upcoming Kickstarter campaign that will start on April 20 and last until May 10.

      Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly  Reaper Facebook Contest.  I was honored to receive an honorable mention.  There were dozens of fantastic entries.  
       
      I wanted to try a white dragon coloration.  I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run.  His scales are Dragon White.  The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash.
       
      His dagger is a green NMM.  His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils.  The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color.  I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base.
       
      I had a lot of fun with this one.  I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices.  I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM.
       
      Enjoy.

      Here comes another one from EC3D, aimed for easy to print, supportless, hordes of lower CR traditional monsters and encounters:

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ecaroth/beast-and-baddies-3d-printable-tabletop-models?ref=user_menu

       
      Welcome to "Beasts and Baddies" from EC3D, your one-stop shop for the fastest, easiest to print, and highly-reusable tabletop fantasy mini STLS!
      This campaign was designed with a few goals in mind:
       
      #1 - Give DMs and gamers a beautiful set of minis to cover the bases for MANY common beasts and baddies they might encounter across most games (particularly low-to-medium level ones)
      #2 - Make those minis DEAD SIMPLE to print - no supports required on resin or FDM printers.
      #3 - Design those minis so they can be painted fast, but detailed enough to paint to a high quality if you wish.
      #4 - Make those minis resilient - aka less prone to breakage with small pieces, easy to travel with, survive drops on the floor, etc
       
      Thus this campaign was born! Many Patreons and Kickstarters have crazy good looking sculpts of various huge bosses, or overly fragile dynamically posed monsters - but nobody is designing minis for the working DM, who wants to throw a set of monsters on the printer before work, come home and they are sitting there finished (with no print errors), slap some paint on them quick, and use them in tonight's session.
      This Kickstarter is designed for every DM - regardless of what kind of fantasy game you run, what kind of printer you have, or what kind of models you are looking to fill out your ranks with, this campaign will have something for you. We have sets of all your basic monsters (orcs, goblins, gnolls, kobolds, undead, etc) plus MANY stretch goals planned out, with a backer voting to help add even more stuff to the pledge.
       
      These minis are designed for your standard fantasy game, and are scaled ~32mm with somewhat heroic proportions. They'll look great next to your existing 3D printable figs, HeroForge, Reaper Bones, etc.
      Minis are designed to print with zero slicer supports - just drop it on your build plate and print away.  Each mini is provided unbased, based on a simple flat base (for you to decorate to your own liking), and also based on a "quick release" bevelled and channeled base (for resin printing, which makes removal from the build plate easy).
      In addition to carefully modeling designs to be support free, we have another advantage: I am a software engineer by trade, and developed an algorithm to help check and remove overhangs in the modeling/repair process, which leads to even easier to print minis!
      This campaign is easy to understand. There is one pledge level, and it gets you everything pictured on this page! All the minis below are included with your pledge. These minis will be delivered to you as  STL files, with all the base options noted above. I've also release a ton of BASES , and am working on another free base pack for this campaign you can use to base these minis if you want more decorative bases.
      As new stretch goals are unlocked, I'll add them to the list of included minis below.  There's 31 minis in the core pack, and I'm expecting to have nearly 100 minis in this campaign when all is said and done!
       
      ** PLEASE NOTE - This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own home 3D printer - these are not physical goods **

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
       
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.
       
      WIP here:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/
       

       

       

       

       
      And the group shot.  Enjoy.
