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.

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!

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
       
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
       
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Ok lets talk about this mini. 

       
      I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far.
       
      So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like:

       
      And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas:

       
      This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating.
       
      The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini

       
      That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better.
       
      I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!

      So I had this mini for some time, it was damaged, missing an arm and a hand. I repaired it using some bits and repainted it. Here's the WIP topic. I like how everything turned out, thanks for looking! 
      Some before and after photos:

      So a while ago I bought 10 of these prepainted wizkids merfolk minis off ebay for cheap. The paintjob on them is horrible but I like the sculpts quite a lot and my dnd group used them all the time during our underwater adventure campaign and was quite happy with th. One of them was missing an arm and I just put her in "to do" box and didn't use her in my games. After some time I chopped of her hand for another project and in the end I was left with an armless and handles mermaid.
       


       
      Since my bits box has grown quite substantially during the last year I decided to pick something out for her in the arms and hands department and also repaint her. 
      I will post updates on the process here and in the end make a new topic in the show off section. I'm open to comments, criticism and sugestions and I hope you like this proces!
      Thank you for looking!

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

       
      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

       
      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
