Hobby/Game Room - an ub3r WIP!

Recommended Posts

Duh! Those are secret.  Looking good (for such a small place.)  My finshes are much less, but my small table is 6' x 4'  The large table is 4'x13'.  But it is in the basement, something that the don't have in your area.

But Goblins don't read maps.

Needs more skulls.

 

I'll send you some. Just....don't tell anyone where you got 'em, ok?

 

Nice set up!

Yeah where are all the skulls and weapons? My hobby area is filled with skulls, muscles and bewbs

Weapons haven't been put up yet. Need to figure out how best to display them and hang them up. The skullz are in my bits box and curio cabinet already!

I kept thinking I need to rush to get everything put away before this weekend's D&D game! Then after emailing the group & being corrected on my timeline, I'm a tad sad as we don't play until the 7th.

 

I'll still try to get everything nicely put away and organized in the next couple of days.

 

Think this weekend I'll finally go see Rogue One, which is almost as good as D&D, right?

More incoming pics! Look up to the reserved space in a moment!

 

Wow this is looking really well good sir 

Thanks! I'm very excited to get started once I get it all put away. I'm going to try to get most of my minis sorted tonight and slap labels on the bits bin stuff.

 

Now I can see some progress and I am extremely jealous!

Next time you come to Vegas, I'll have to invite you over to paint and hang out!

 

There were no secret doors on the map.  Where are you going to hide stuff from Buglips without secret doors?

Shhh I don't put secret doors labeled, that'd make it too easy on the goblin... besides I own precisely 0 pro paints so he'd not really want to steal any of my stuff, it's too organized for him.

 

Duh! Those are secret.  Looking good (for such a small place.)  My finshes are much less, but my small table is 6' x 4'  The large table is 4'x13'.  But it is in the basement, something that the don't have in your area.

SMALL!? heh I guess it's small for a dual space, but it looks smaller than it really is because I still have things on the floor and not mounted to walls or removed from all the boxes yet. Dang, 4x13? That'd take up most of my room! I'd be happy with a bit longer table that I plan on making and dropping a flat screen into and a bit less wide to give more clearance around the edges.

 

Congrats on the hobby room.  I'm glad you like it.

Thanks! Very much so ::D:

 

Looking good, and I'm stealing lots of ideas!

Thank you, steal away!

 

Looks good so far and I am sure that it will be even better once you have it the way you want it.

 

I will say that I am more than a little jealous that your room has windows.

 

That is the only thing mine doesn't have that I would really like in a game room.

Yeah, love the windows, tho this time of year it gets dark too fast to really paint during the week by the natural light. The house is very light colored inside, the room is very bright with the LEDs and I will probably get at least one more light for my paint desk area. I also want to get more light for the photo-taking area.

 

I hate you a little.  :-)  Love the room, and love the paint rack.  Is that the original Kraken one from TGJ, or is it from the newer company?

Thanks! :wub: you too!

 

It's actually 2 racks - I WON both of them!

 

1st = was TGJ Hobbies on a facebook contest. They drew my name randomly and I won it (a $200 value), but then I tossed about  $100 their way to add some drawers and customize it a bit more.

 

2nd = middle section smaller profile rack was another I won with $20 at the Las Vegas Open for the raffle after Tim and the others split ranks and Tim was off on his own for his new company BPP. This was a $350 complete rack. 

 

Newest company is NeWay Designs and I'm going to probably talk to Tim again about expanding a bit as I've run outta room now for paints to put in the racks, he's coming to Vegas in January for a design show. Told me that I'm not allowed to enter any more of his raffles or contests ::P:

Put my name in your place.

 

No, really.

 

Really really.

COOL! Once your done are you planning a video run through of the awesomeness? I would surely like to see how you organize everything. But I'm an organization nerd. ::P:

      Working on the Stone Giant. I'm looking for any constructive criticism but especially of the highlighting on the flesh. Not sure if I am finished or if it needs more highlights on the flesh. Everything else just is base colors and has not been worked on other than that.  He came missing the the left hand and club.

      Needing a break from resin (and not knowing how I want to paint my latest print), I have turned back to more basic crafting with xps foam.  Leaning heavily on the teachings of Black Magic Craft on YouTube.  These were also good to pick at during the seemingly 10000 hours of teleconferences I was on last week. 
       
      3/4” by 2.5” forms were cut and deck screws added to one end to provide some weight.  I next marked out every 1/4”, then scored then with the knife and speed square.  The verticale cuts were eyeballed about 1/3 of the way in on alternating rows (I did half one way, the other reversed to add some variety). I then went over all the cuts with a pen to increase the indent and soften the inner edges.  

       
      I then cut out the end caps 1” square and textured everything, pillars included with rolled up tin foil.  

       
      Lastly, I used hot glue to assemble the pieces.  

       
      hope to get them primed tomorrow and then a quick paint job on Sunday.   Not that we’re playing D&D these days but I hope to have a few more pieces of terrain ready to go for when all this horrible stuff passes and we can resume our normal routines.  
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I base coated this guy (Otherworld Shadow 1 of 2) in Reaper Nightmare Black (a gorgeous blue-black) and drybrush highlighted with a 50/50 mix of Oceanic Blue and Pure White. 
       
      I think he looks done! Thoughts? Too heavy on the dry brush? I plan to use some Vallejo Ground Texture on the base. Happy to hear comments and criticism.

      So I’ve been burning through resin for the past few weeks.  Been focusing on busts as my collection of unpainted minis is... impressive.  I should be painting those, but...  Other than my airbrush exploding on me (paint bubbling up through the trigger), this guy hasn’t taken much time yet.  
       
      Got this from Fotis Mint on Patreon along with a bunch of other ones. 


      Printed with a mix of regular clear Elegoo resin mixed with clear red ABS-like Elegoo, about 70/30.  
       

      Primed with Vallejo black primer then base coated with Reaper Coal Black (my new favourite black!!) with a drop of Minitaire Green ghost tint to help enhance the green hue.  
       

      he then got a bib and I hit his face with Reaper Mist Green mixed with some white with a lighter (much more white than Most Green) highlight.  
       

      i then glossed up the face with some varnish. 
       

      His face then got some washes.  Old GW Ogryn Flesh thinned down all over, Vallejo Model Wash Dark Green on the skin and Minitaire Fresh Blood Ghost Tint on the lips and teeth.  
       
      The crown then got a base coat of Reaper Scorched Metal.  
       
      Apparently I didn’t take shots of it, but I then mat coated it and cleaned up the black around the face.  
       
      Tonight I’ll bring the skin back to an almost pure white, leaving the washes in the cracks and I’ll get his mouth done.  
      The crown is a more silver colour in the comics but I’m planning on sponging lighter metallics on to give it a less pristine look.  The leather will be relatively plain as I want the face to stand out, but it will get some highlights and buckles picked out. 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I planned to go for the coloring suggestion on the box, except with brighter feathers. After base coat and a wash it seemed to turn rather plain. I keep the underside this way, while for the top side of the wings I started adding some variation to the feathers, gradually daring to add more detail and contrast. Took a while to get there, but in the end I was happy and called it finished. I even took a fun picture with it:
       

       
       
       
      But now that I'm a few minis wiser, I demoted him from finished to lacking base. And this is where I am stuck now. 
       
      I had this plan of making a sandstone cliff looking base. I positioned him and started building up terrain, working carefully not to damage the finished mini. I colored some stones of various sizes in a few colors so I don't need to paint as much around the mini and I started to glue my rocks carefully around the base. 
       

       
      I kept working on it for hours thinking I am getting somewhere, but once I took a break and looked at it again from all sides... I stand by my rocks, I think in a few steps they'll look great, but the scene makes no sense. These are not cliffs, more like a stone quarry, what would a griffon be doing there? - that's too specific and unlikely.
       
      Time to "delete" this somehow and start over... Wish me luck!
