Mantic : Terrain Crate 2 KS

Recommended Posts

I'm curious, but the era isn't too much in my style...Granted the gothic/victorian COULD be useful for Stra- I mean...a Vampire Aristocrat..

I didn’t back the first terrain crate but I did get given one of the boxes by FIL for my birthday and I really liked it- if the price it right I can see myself backing this quite thoroughly. Yes I found some of the plastic needed boiling the thinner bits- but I can’t bring myself to complain about that when I do the same for bones without complaint

I quite like the terrain crate 1 stuff I got (except the floor torches, too wiggly) but I don't think I need it in the quantities that they're going to want to sell it for a KS pledge. So maybe I'll get random stuff retail, unless they add some new scifi stuff that I really want.

Heh - I have been asked to bring our Terrain Crate 1 stuff to tonight's game - it sounds like Sam has been talking about it.

 

The camp stuff, in particular, will be good.

 

The Auld Grump - I keep calling it my Terrain Crate stuff, but Megan is the one that has painted most of it....

I'll probably throw cash at the "one of each basic box" pledge, like I did before

 

Ditto. I mostly play D&D and Call of Cthulhu, so these new sets seem perfect for me. The only down-side is that I have too much unpainted terrain.

 

Any tips for getting Terrain Crates table-ready easily? I dry-brushed some of the brown pieces with light-brown... it seemed good enough.

A really big brush for dry brushing with Dwarven Forge paints is my strategy.

I went over mine in brown craft paint because I wasn't sure how well wash would apply to the bare plastic, I picked out a few details that would be other colours (metal or paper bits) then I did a very light tan drybrush over everything and a black wash to tone down the drybrush and shade- I think it worked out okay!

For wood and gold, you could spray paint with Army Painter Leather Brown colored primer. For wood, then wash with brown Strong Tone ink. For gold, drybrush with a gold metallic paint.

I did something similar for my Reaper Bones, but Army Painter Leather Brown primer came out far too dark when combined with Army Painter Strong Tone ink/dip (aka Minwax Polyshades Tudor satin stain). Army Painter Fur Brown primer seemed to work better for dark brown results, while Desert Yellow primer worked well for a light brown/sepia results.

 

I dipped several hundred Bones this way, but I didn't like this technique when I tried it on terrain. Dry-brushing seemed more suitable (plus: it didn't require a mat spray afterwards to take off the gloss).

Megan's method was to spray pretty much everything with a brown Army Painter primer, then after drying, blocking in all the colors, followed by a dip in MinWax Polyshade. (I introduced her to the method... and I may have created a monster - she ended up doing about 2/3 of the models that way. In about a week. ::o: )

Good to know- I saw a post that said this plastic stayed tacky with spray primers (similar to bones) so I didnt risk it- probably would have saved me a good amount of time!

Army Painter is one of the better primers, in regards to tackiness - I have never had a problem with it, though I have seen one person complain on another forum. (At a guess, the manufacturer did a substitution on the solvent for the primer. It's not like anyone would notice, right?)

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      The KS is starting off with bases, and SG's unlock the terrain:

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture.
