OK, it is a bit of a hot mess, but it is still progress.




I base coated the corals and sponge painted the rocks green, then followed with a black wash and heavy black lining. I have been  touching up the sand where the wash spilled over, and  painting the rocks back to a grey using a medium grey with a steel grey highlight, leaving a touch of the underlying green. you can see where I have been working inwards from the bottom left corner. it is slow going, piece by piece.


In order to do the washes I needed to mount the magnetic tiles horizontally, so I used a spare ikea end table top and tested out the magnetic paint I picked up from the hardware store. a single coat had a weak bond with the tiles, but a second layer cleared that up and they now stick well. the table is a bit too small and only fits a 4*4 configuration, so I was forced to leave out the open sea floor pieces. Ill have to update those in a batch.


So much to do, even after all of that! at least the magnetic board is working properly, that was an expensive gamble. I need to fish around for a bigger surface.

then on to sand touchup, corals, kelp, shells.....

      No painting... all magnets... 3x3 tiles. Creators have a few manufacturing KS under their belt, although magnetic tiles seem to be a new thing.
      Prices include shipping to most areas. 
      Anyway, watch the videos. The houses look a little clunky, but take a look at that tower in the last seconds of the intro video.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      So I've been printing the Fat Dragon Games dungeon tile that I received back durimg one of the Bones KSs.  Finally got to paimting them all. 
      Figured that I should start a topic to record what I end up doimg with them.  Here is the second batch that I painted drying.  I primed them with my air brush and black Stylnrez, followed by succesibe layers of medium and light gray craft paints.  I used a 1 inch trim brush for tje drybrushing.

      I was having some fun playing with green stuff and decided to revamp the base of this Goroloth. I scupted corals, tube sponge, starfish, and a deadly blue-ringed octopus! There's some pictures of the sculpts before trimming and painting also. :D
