Stronghold on the Borderlands

About this project

           Stronghold on the Borderlands

My concept is centered on creating a fort that would exist as a garrison or trading station in a borderland fantasy setting. The idea is developed around the notion of a timber fort being hastily constructed on part/on top of an older ruined stone fortification. I pursued this half-and- half concept so that the fort might also be applicable as a tribal center for barbarian and goblinoid cultures.

                     NOTICE: This item is not intended for children

NOTICE: This item is being offered and shipped in white resin only, the painted version is for display only.

                                      Design and Manufacture

The initial  design and construction of this fort uses both 3d Printing and hand sculpted methods. All silicon rubber molds are properly degassed and manufacture will involve pressure casting plastic resin to 50lbs. I will use smooth cast 300 from smooth-on. It is a well known plastic resin and very friendly to modelers who want to make hand modifications to the pieces. 

                                       Packaging and Shipping

Your structure will arrive in the box that is featured in the image below  regardless of what size fort you order,

Packaging Packaging

       This box will also contain all pieces related to Stretch Goal Awards, Add-ons, and Digital Designs on USB. There will not be any additional packing support in the box but All products will be wrapped in 1/4 inch cell bubble wrap. All orders will be shipped in a USPS medium flat rate 2-3 day Priority or international priority. Unless requested otherwise, all domestic products will ship with signature confirmation.  

                                            Stretch Goal Awards

Stretch Goal Awards Stretch Goal Awards

 The stretch goal awards for this project involve small stone ruins, The sum of all awards should give you enough pieces to imply a foundation of a ruined building. The ruined stair design is the correct height for use with the walls of the main fortification. The finished models will not vary significantly from the dimensions shown here but details will be enhanced and tweaked.

So this has the 3d print option AND a physical resin option....Now we're talkin....

Though I do wish they would do a wood gate.  and the stone entrance seems a bit small...

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
       
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      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.

      Pretty much the entire 'leader' page is GIFs so I'm not going to try and copy it over to here.

      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!
