StoneHaven Miniature Pop-Up Terrain Kits Kickstarter

Almost glad it isn't their figures as I'm already backing 2 KS and would've been real tempted to back another.

Wow. if that's an example, I really like the illustrative style. It's very different from the multicolors of certain schools of hyper realism.

but but..can i paint it? :(

 

Looks like it from the example. Though colored pencils might be a better way to go.

Reminds me of Edward Gorey's stuff.

 

I like it. I don't love it. But I like it. The same style in something more solid and not pop-up, would appeal to me more.

Gorey had a pop up book for Dracula... and once you reminded me.... Yeah, I can see the similarities.

 

But I am an enormous Gory fan... and can recite the entirety of the The Gashlycrumb Tinies Alphabet.

 

A is for Amy, who fell down the stairs.

B is for Basil, assaulted by bears.

C is for Clara, who wasted away.

D is for Desmond, thrown out of a sleigh.

E is for Ernest, who choked on a peach.

F is for Fanny, sucked dry by a leach....

That's neat :huh: Do you have to print it? Does it unfold into that neato shape? That would be super handy to store if it did...

It's not for me. I wish them success on it, but hope they will be back with another miniature Kickstarter for underrepresented character races or humanoids (but not too soon, a couple of those a year is plenty for me).

I'm quite likely to back this. The fact that this terrain is a)interesting, B) in large pieces and c) folds to store in my army bag to go to the flgs or a friend's house all add up to pretty awesome in my book.

 

To my points:

A) it looks cool, whether colored or not. The pieces can be used together (the graveyard and the ruin would be a nice pairing) or as single central locations on a table. They also will work nicely for either wargames or RPGs. My Warmahordes games will love the machine shop.

 

B) I hate scatter terrain for transport. This covers enough area to be easy to set up, and it's easy to keep organized in a pocket of the go-bag.

 

C) when your friend has space to play but no terrain, you don't want to pack up mountains and hirstart ruins every time you go over there. This makes the table more than bare wood laminate, but gets there easily.

 

A+ if you ask me.

      Stumbled across this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here.  Be a different way of putting together woods and stuff for traditional wargaming.

      So, I invoke the 3 foot rule on these; one could go back and forth forever attempting to edge half-timbered buildings.
       
      I have been idly working on new scenery since the pandemic, and finished two more buildings plus a well I bought a few months ago.  (That’s lightning speed compared to some projects.)  These are sold on Amazon by some outfit called Ender Toys.  I picked up a group of four, and a second group of two, some fences and the well.  
       
      If these are an example of what I could get at home, I’m not rushing out to get a printer to wrestle with.  The filament lines are pretty distinct close up.
       

       

       
      However, they are light and didn’t take all that long to paint, so I think they will be fine in a game.
       
      I posted the earlier buildings plus some tree bases in this thread: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92205-tree-group-bases/
       
      The overall building collection now looks like this, including a Battle Masters tower:

      As Halloween approaches the dollar stores are filling up with cheap decorations and spooky bricabrac. Amid all the potential projects a certain reflective skull caught my eye. Not knowing if it would take paint or not I decided to roll the dice on a few. I attached them to some bases, added a bit of sand, and the next day I took them out to prime. 

      They ended up taking primer just fine, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the primer I use. Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of their grey primed goodness. 
       
      Next up were the basecoats of the skull and "dirt".

      I didn't get great or even smooth coverage on the skulls, but it was good enough as I was just going to add a heavy wash anyway.

      The wash was a bit thicker than I wanted but again I figured it was passable and more than good enough to move onto a final drybrush.

      Not too bad, but there is definitely room for improvement. I guess I'll just have to practice a bit more with my new drybrush. 

      I finally took the leap and tried Uncle Atom's makeup dry brushing technique. Though this project probably qualifies as a failure, I do see the potential. Now all I need is more practice, it's not like I don't have a huge backlog of terrain just waiting to be painted.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      So I salvaged this bit of 16×20 particle board from a broken picture frame. I'll be using some of my foam core to make a city square/crossroads board with my foam rollers. Something for city games that isn't too time consuming, but is also good for a wide spread of genres with the proper buildings and scatter
      The tough part will be steaming off the paper and cutting down the various bits for rolling.
