Those are going to look amazing! Make me wish I had room for a few! I'm probably going to have to start giving/selling stuff to make room for future projects! LOL! 

 

Edit: These buildings, however, will require a cat!

Yes, I will definitely need little animals, including a cat. If I could find a tiny mouse, that would be awesome as well! I considered trying to make a little cobweb in one corner of the room. We'll see what happens when I get to that point.

I would look at familiar packs for your small animals....

I did check out the familiars and found a few things I like. A hedgehog...squeeeee! I didn't find bunnies or any cute little birds, like songbirds. Several larger birds that I like but no little ones. Some cats. Edna the crazy cat lady doesn't need so many. Wish the boneyard was back. The little weasel/ferret will work and I am sure I already have him somewhere...

 

Those are gorgeous.  Almost makes me want to invest in some, but I'm still just building them from scratch and sweat...

I know many of you are talented enough to make your own. I know my limitations so I must purchase the artful sculpting endeavors of others. However, they are having free worldwide shipping until April 23. I would place another order but the hubs might just blow his top. I have so many things unpainted and I keep buying more! I have been trying to time my purchases to when he gets a new video game. Unfortunately he says the next one he wants is in May.

 

I also looked around and found a couple fireplaces from Fenryll. There are 2 that I like that I think would work. Of course they have a bunch of other goodies that I also like. And it would mean another order. See what my hubby has to put up with? Ha!

There's nothing wrong with making stuff yourself AND buying stuff!  I do both.  I also got an order as part of my Christmas, and just finished painting the Town Well.  I'm also in the process of building two Bavarian-style houses from scratch (balsa wood, foamboard, and card).  I've got stuff from Miniature Building Authority, and cardstock models from Fat Dragon Games.  HirstArts molds and Dave Graffam Models. 

 

The more the better!

 

Tabletop World are super cool.  Have lots of fun with the painting.

Nope, nothing wrong with making things yourself if you can do it. I can't. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

 

I have told my husband that if we win the lottery, I am dumping a bunch of money into minis and terrain! Haha! Had a vendor at Cancon laughing who said it is usually the husbands begging the wives to let them spend more money, not the other way around!

 

New pictures soon. I am experimenting with the wood painting method that ub3r_n3rd posted in Painting Tips to see how that looks or if I want to just straight up paint the wood. Practicing on the inside of the roof as that will be the least visible.

Ok, that wood method was an epic fail. Not even worth taking pictures, it was that bad.

 

I am currently undercoating all of the wood that I want to look like wood with slightly watered down Reaper brown liner. It is looking good but omg this stuff drinks the liner! It is so detailed and has so many cracks and crevices it just sucks the liner in. I am going to need to order brown liner in bulk. I am going to need more anyway as I have DDS2 to paint yet as well as Bones 3 coming later this year.

 

I am almost finished undercoating and then will post pictures.

 

I have been rewatching GoT while I paint. Getting ready for season 6! So far I am up to episode 3 of season 2.

Ok, I basecoated everything I want to be wood with reaper brown liner. I went ahead and did the exterior as well as I am not worried about the liner rubbing off. The main area I want the liner is down in the crevices, and trust me, they are deep enough that the liner is not going to be coming off with me handling it.

 

My next step will be to do some dry brushing with different shades of brown on the floor, door, and window frames.

It doesn't look like much yet. I'm definitely not to that point yet but basecoating the doors and shutters got me to thinking about the fixtures. I am going to have to look at some pictures of old houses. I have seen a lot of people paint them silver but my first thought was black. Going to have to do some looking!

      While I love painting miniatures, painting terrain pieces is also fun! I started these two this month and finished just yesterday. I’m considering getting these two pieces again and do a desert themed set.

      I am finally getting around to painting this after a few years on my shelf. I primed the bottom section grey because of all the stone, and the top sections brown because of all the wood.

      Story
      Hello and thank you for taking a look at this campaign! I'm a digital sculptor from Germany and this is my first 3D related campaign. I'm excited to share my models with you!
      Mythology has always had a special place in my heart and I wanted to make something that others can be a part of as well! 
      This Kickstarter provides a range of popular mythological beasts, scatter, props and scenery for you to print at home on your 3D printer. Use them for your tabletop gaming, in your dioramas or paint them - it's up to you!
        Why digital files and no physical goods? I'm still somewhat new to the whole miniature scene so I don't feel comfortable enough to offer physical objects yet. This is something that will definitely happen in the future, once I had the time to establish more contacts and can assure great quality.
      What will you get? You will receive .STL files of the miniatures and props listed below. Additionally, I will be sharing tips for printing the models and my workflow in a PDF for trouble-free printing, which might be useful if you're still new to 3D printing.
      Check, check and check!
      All files have been checked for issues and test printed on my LCD resin printer Everything is prescaled for uniformity Tips for optimal printing & personal workflow as PDF included   Commercial license? Want to sell copies of the models online or in your brick & mortar store? No problem! Just choose the 'Commercial License' reward tier and you're good to go! Please note that this license only allows the sale of physical copies.
        This campaign includes a collection of popular mythological beasts. All miniatures were sculpted with great attention to detail that translates well into your 3D printed models. All minis come with their own base that fit on a standard D&D dungeon map. 
      The miniatures are prescaled for easier use and uniformity. Most monsters are 'large' so they're scaled two fit into a 2"2" square. Of course you're free to rescale them to your needs! 
      Here's a list of the monsters you'll receive:
      Basilisk (large) Cerberus (large) Cockatrice (small) Cyclops (large) Fenrir (large) Hippocampus (large) Pegasus (large) Sphinx (large) Unicorn (large) Wyvern (large)  Photos of the printed miniatures can be found further down the page!
          This pre-prepared version of the wyvern allows you to print it BIG! It is sliced into 5 pieces and keyed for easy assembly! Prescaled to around 23 cm (ca.9 in), this wyvern is a real eyecatcher. 
        Photo of the printed, assembled and primed Wyvern The Wyvern was printed on an Anycubic Photon S It measures about 23 cm (ca. 9 in) in length
