Bones 3 (77556) Mystic Circle

Recommended Posts

Dilute PVA or Elmers can be sprayed from those cheap spray bottles pretty easily. It dries clear (the real PVA more than the Elmers).

Oh smart idea! I'll have to pick one up... I wonder if one can make a batch and have it last... or maybe I'll just have to search for really small spray bottles. I just don't want to waste to much for such a tiny application.   I'm already using diluted elmers for the static grass; I dilute it pretty heavily and brush it on.

The diluted glue lasts for about as long as undiluted glue does, IME. (Which is to say, "years".) But I've never had a big bottle of dilute glue around. I think I'd be worried about inadvertently spraying it on my windows or something. ^_^

Look for Woodland Scenic "Scenic Sprayer" It's a small bottle that has a nozzle that won't go everywhere. It's used in the train hobby & such. 

 

Awesome work on the circle.

Your circle looks fantastic! I use the woodland scenic sprayer tho mine is clogged right now...:unsure: when it works it's great. 

 

 

I have one as well....around here somewhere. Pretty sure when I find it mine will be clogged & I'll be able to test out how long thinned out glue (WS brand) last..... ::P:   It's been a very long time since I squeezed that trigger (prob 10+ years)!

I happened to be in Joann's the other day, and I found a little bottle of Elmer's spray adhesive, so I'll give that a shot and see how it works.

      So I got a newsletter with super early (2020) kickstarter tease (image behind the spoiler).

      Well mostly scenic base.  Made a town centre that will get dressed up as a market once finished. Basing material is foamex with a plastic receipt spool covered in Milliput.  Painted with a mix of craft, PP and GW paints.  Further tinted with a treatment of oils.

      Online, from a certain market of miniatures, I found some "Kaosball" team expansion packs on clearance (for a better price than what they're listed at now, as of this writing).  Each pack contains 13 32mm-scale minis in 2 poses (6 of one pose on 25mm square bases, and 7 of an alt pose on 25mm round bases), a "bust" that represents the "team coach," and a game-specific 12-sided die (which I suppose isn't much use for anything, unless I actually wanted to play the game).  Anyway, this worked out to being under $1 a figure, and the sculpts looked interesting, so I got a few packs.  (I find it hilarious, though, that while most of the packs are marked down, the "Felinia Hellcats" -- scantily-clad gun-toting cat-girls -- are specifically marked as "[CLEARANCE]" and yet they're priced at about 3x the asking price for each of the other teams.)
       
      I originally picked these guys up (the "Samaria Barbarians") with a vague intent that "someday" I would run a Savage Worlds convention one-shot scenario heavily inspired by the "Brütal Legend" video game ... but it occurred to me that few if any of my players would have heard of that game, and I'm no particular "expert" on anything rock-and-roll-related, so maybe I'm not the best person to GM such a setting.

      However, I could always use a few more post-apocalyptic wastelanders.  The "big hair" style here doesn't necessarily look like it would fit the current Fallout aesthetic as established in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, but I think these guys wouldn't look terribly out of place in the original Fallout 1 & 2 (what with all the "Mad Max" and "Fist of the North Star" wannabes wandering about in those games).  I removed the figures from their bases, putty-and-texture-stamped the 25mm round bases, putty-and-texture-stamped some plastic 25mm rounds for the remaining figures, and did a few hand swaps and bit-add-ons to give a few of the figures visible ranged weaponry.  (I figured that would give me a little more buy-in if I were to field a gang of these guys for an encounter and then they start FIRING on the PCs, versus what pushback I might get if they *appeared* to only be armed with axes.)

      I used some paper printed license plates to add some "junk armor" elements to further reinforce the "post-apocalyptic" vibe.

      Each team pack also comes with a "bust" to represent the team coach.  I went with a bronze-and-verdigris scheme for each.

      Came across this article. Oh to have money, time, and space.
