Awesome!

 

I love these colours, now all you need is a few dancing girls a campfire and you're in business!

It's very beautiful and so colorful. I love it a lot, it look so cozy ans elegant.

First thing that came to my mind is: did it required a lot of assembling? And second, do I need magic potions? :poke:

It did not require assembling. It comes in a pack with 2 horses, a campfire, a couple bedrolls, some treasure chests and a cask.
You can definitely BYOMP (Bring your own magic potion). I am not sure if you would want to drink anything that was offered to you inside!

Warped is fine. It adds to the unique and colourful appearance of this piece.

 

Now you need an ox.

I was thi9nking of either cutting the horn off a unicorn and painting it up like a Gypsy Vanner horse or taking the dwarf mage off the pony and painting up the pony to go with it.

Beautiful and well done - I like this alternate color scheme.

I wish the whole set wasn't so expensive or that they sold the vardos separately because I would like a few more of the vardos. Paint one in traditional colors, paint one to look run down and a little creepy. But I don't need 3-4 whole sets and they are $50 here so, I guess I'll have 1 vardo!

It came with a little campfire. I also have some dancing girls, but they aren't painted yet! My players have met the "travelers" twice now and next session will most likely be interacting with them again. We'll see if they buy any of the potions or trinkets from the back of the wagon or if they have their fortunes told! I actually have music that I play for the travelers' camp and the group loves it!

I'd echo everything said here, plus I love the tasteful but deliberate basing. The flower tufts really place the vardo in a scene. Me, I imagine it parked in a high mountain pass for the night as the owner travels between villages.

I am in love with those colors. So many minis are painted in dull colors, but this is so vibrant. Very well done!

Nice. Mine is a little more traditional in its colour scheme (although it still has a purple roof) - I painted it up in a bit of a hurry so it could be presented to my players for a bit of future overland travel. They 

promptly sold it to pay for passage by boat across the bay . . .

I love the vibrant colors! You and I have similar tastes.  That looks like it would be perfectly at home in a Roma caravan or a fortune tellers camp.  Great job!

      I haven’t posted in a while.  Been mostly painting terrain for the past 8 months or so.  Finally getting back to some minis.
       
      So I picked up the Wizkids frost giant last fall to paint up as Harashnag for my Storm Kings Thunder campaign.  He had been sitting around for a while and I finally got a chance to get him painted.  
       
      The right arm actually wasn’t glued in very well so I was able to paint with it out of the way for the most part.  As usual with these Wizkids pre-primes, I didn’t clean up any mold lines though I probably should have this time around.  C&C welcome!

      Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld! 

      I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of?


      In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block.
       
      I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'

      It seems that scale creep is a very real thing! This is Nolzur's delightfully brutish and verdant Shambling Mound. For a Large creature it is very large indeed, easily the size of a tabletop-scale elephant or bigger, and extending way off a 2x2 base with its outstretched limb.

      I put some straight-pin mushrooms on it, as I do. 
       
       

      Here's a group shot with Reaper's beautiful Swamp Shambler and a WotC grab-bag Dryad and Needle Blight, for scale comparison.

      Been working on this guy for a while; finished him (for a given value of "finished") a couple weeks ago but didn't take pics until recently. The sculpted beard wasn't doing it for me, so I added some reindeer moss. Glued on some tiny leaves that look like miniaturized burr oak leaves. His huckable boulder I'm using for other terrain. 

      This is a big fella!
       

      C&C welcome as always.

      Here are a couple of WIP photos from my T-rex conversion to the "King of Feathers". 
       
      I was working from this painting, from the "Tombs of Annihilation" campaign book.
       

       
      I trimmed away a lot of the ornamentation on his back and put on a base of green stuff.  Once that dried, giving me a smooth surface to work from, I started adding small strips of green stuff to jam the 'feathers' into.  The feathers are made from Dollar Store plants.  I used wire cutters to clip the ends off of about 500 individual plastic leaves.  Then I washed the leaves, so they would have a better chance of sticking to the green stuff and the glue.  They still fall out sometimes, even though they are glued into the greenstuff with superglue.  I would add a chunk of greenstuff and smooth it out.  Then I jammed in the 'feathers'.  Once I had a line of feathers in place, I put another line of greenstuff on top of them to hold them in place, and to be the base for the next layer of feathers.  Once I had all the pieces ready to go, it went surprisingly quickly.  The actual process of applying the feathers only took about two hours. 
       

       
       

       

       
      I used my airbrush to apply primer in a zenithal pattern.  Because of the complexity of the feathers, it was much easier to use the airbrush to prime it rather than brush it on. 
       

       
      Final paint finish turned out pretty well.
       

       
       
      Here is the same figure painted as a more traditional t-rex.
       

       
      This project was a lot of fun.  I spent a lot of time giggling over how the players in my D&D game were going to react when I put this on the table.
