The Delicacy Of The Dumpster

Recommended Posts

When I first saw the shipping container, I thot, "A battlefield made with fifty of those and a crane would be beyond cool."

Imagine a gang war or a drug bust among those.

 

Or a supernatural monster stalking there.

 

Maybe superhero battle, one of the hulk types actually lifting one of those? ( or a dumpster of course).

 

If you let your imagination run wild for a while these things are very useful.

 

I was thinking about a diorama with a shipwreck and the goroloth.

Now I suddenly realise that a sunken container, all rusty would also be nice.

 

Oh well.. part of the hobby, pondering about all the possibilities.

I sure hope there is an afterlife, else I will never get to get everything done

Cargo went overboard, all rusty now.

An octopus inhabits it now, surrounded by fish.

 

The door is cracked open through the pressure.

Goods spilled out.

 

Goroloth/sharks/kraken/insert sea monster makes sure no diver will ever get this loot.

Theres a lot of different dumpster manufacturers and many have several different models.

I see Reapers as being one of the larger ones.Attachment-1_zps9020abfc.jpg

I like the fact that Reaper started making such miniatures.

 

Dumpster, Container, Telephone Booth.

 

Did anyone realise the NOT Tardis could be used as a regular telephone booth btw?

It occurred to me, but phone booths are kinda passe, unless you're playin' a superhero game...

Then sink them off to form more underwater scenery, maybe an unfortunate mobster still inside.

...regrettably, you'd have to hollow out the booth, cut out the windows, and install the unfortunate mobster inside. Lot of work, there. On the other hand, it'd be a heck of a display piece in the aquarium -- skeletal mobster with fedora, grinning eternally out of the phone booth...

And if I were diving and ran across a phone booth with a dead mobster in it at ninety feet under, my first euphemistic thought would be, "Daaaaang. Who did HE tick off? Mostly they just NORMALLY go with cement overshoes. THIS guy locked him in a PHONE BOOTH!"

Mobster is on the phone in the boot.

 

Helicopter from rival gang flies over, picks up the booth with a crane thingy.

 

Drops booth and mobster in ocean.

Now I have a mental picture of a giant hermit crab using the TARDIS as a shell.

And I'm thinking of rules for portapotties in a modern or future game. What's the chance they'll explode when hit with a grenade or energy weapon? Or does that blue gunk they put in there somehow neutralize the methane?

      This is the Guard House / Toll Booth from Kiernan Billings’ Wizards Tower Expansion Set. IIRC this was printed at a 150 micron layer height using my Anycubic i3 Mega printer. I tried smoothing out the print ridges using Polycrylic before priming. It didn’t seem to make a difference on the print lines. 
       
      This is a two piece print (building and roof) with a simple paintjob of dry brushing, washes, and matte coating. I think it turned out great for the game table. If I wanted something for display, I think I could get the quality necessary on my UV resin printer at higher resolution .  The photo doesn’t show the bluish purple of the roof very well, but this is generally a good representation of the work. I have not decided if I will permanently attach the roof or not. 
       


       
      Now I need to paint the couple dozen pieces I have printed of the Wizards Tower and Bridges. 
       
      C&C welcome.

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      Since I first saw miniature terrain, I have wanted to build a village for my miniatures. When I saw sappet102's Gloomholde City, I was blown away! I know I am not a sculptor and can't make that nice of a village for my minis so I went on a hunt.
       
      I came across Tabletop World and their buildings had exactly the look I wanted. As my Christmas gift, my hubs said if that is I wanted, I could place an order and pick out a few. (I want them all!) I kept to a conservative amount to see what I thought. Once I received them, I was so pleased. I have not found a single mold line. I had to fill in one tiny bubble spot on the top of the cottage chimney. My only complaint is with the cottage and Townhouse I, there is no fireplace on the inside to correspond to the chimney on the outside.
       
      I ordered the Cottage, Townhouse II, and the furniture set. There was a mistake with my order so they sent out a Townhouse I for my troubles.
       
      They are having a contest on their facebook right now where people sent in their painted models. Man, some of those are amazing.
       
      Anyway, so I am going to paint up the little cottage first. I want to paint it up and then mount it on a (probably square) board and then do a little flagstone walkway, some flowers, trees, maybe a little garden. So if anyone knows where to get tiny animals like little birds, bunnies, butterflies, etc, I'd be interested. I was taught how to make paper butterflies but I haven't tried that yet.
       
      I washed the cottage with soapy water, rinsed it and let it air dry. I then primed it with spray on primer. I will be starting with the inside as to me, that just makes good sense since I will be holding it on the outside. When I get to the outside, I want to use different colored "stones" like it is found stone rather than quarried. Kind of like this picture:

      Found a couple of broken toys in a charity shop.  This became a project for a rainy day on holiday.

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
