So how do I paint something with a marble effect? I have a sepulcher or sarcophagus, primed light grey, and I want to paint it like it was made from marble. Any ideas or tricks? Colors? Anything? Bueller?
If it helps, its the one from the Horror subset of the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers.
Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.
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."
Today I wanted to show off some cheap 54mm Vikings that I painted up as Frost Giants.
I made these guys close to a year ago, and they were among some of the first larger sized minis I had worked on, so they're a little rough, and that's before looking at the quality of model, but if someone else is in need of a lot of giants like I was, then this might be useful to them!
So these guys are from Tehnolog, a Russian miniatures company that I know very little about. The minis are made out of a soft plastic like novelty toys you can buy with tickets at an arcade. They also have abysmal detail.
They're meant for 54mm wargaming, and I believe there's an intended game system that accompanies the line, but my goal was to get some cheap giants for D&D.
They fit nicely on a 2in base, and could probably fit in with the smaller Reaper Bones giants, but they're definitely a little undersized. I remedied this by giving them each a boosted base, with the leader getting two layers. At a glance, they tower over a standard medium sized mini.
The details were rough and there were some ugly mold lines here and there. But they're serviceable. They might work better as a half-giant if you want to use 5e's Huge Frost Giants.
More pictures of each giant below the Spoiler:
Tehnolog also has a few other lines of fantasy-esque minis if you're a fan of cheap minis. I am still considering getting one of their other lines to convert into cheap-o Fire Giants.
What's your favorite obscure miniature substitute?
