You know, until I saw that picture, the humonguous evil spider mini didn't bother me at all. SHUDDER.

 

If we make ours look like that, Jenny would leave the room every time it was on the table.  :zombie:

Modelling spider-webs without an airbrush is going to be interesting. I'm trying it with the Cave Spider from Bones 4 and a custom base I made up for it. Hoping to get some decent results with dryer sheets, but we'll see.

Maybe.

 

One to paint like that, and one cartoony so Jenny doesn't run from the table. ::P:

 

She had NO problem with Grump's giant Hula Drider.  But my smaller driders gave her the heebie jeebies.

 

Grump's giant Hula Drider managed to be CUTE! <_<

 

We have a lot of Bones driders. Mine are black, Grump's are brown and green.

 

Mine are cave driders, his are wood driders. Mine are EVIL! and want to KILL you. His are friendly and want to TALK to you!

 

Mine are Aberrations, his are Fey.

 

Mine serve a Demon Queen, his dance in the woods.

 

But his little driders skeeved Jenny just as bad as my little driders. It was just his big drider that didn't bother her. Maybe it was the ukelele? Or the fiddle on the other one. Grump's big driders are musicians. Strings.

 

I haven't done one of the big ones yet. I am thinking I will borrow from Kali Ma, and steal the torso from a Marilith demon. Lots of arms and legs, lots of weapons, and lots of poison. Killy, not dancey.

 

I would love to see a Bones Black spider demon/ giant drider.

 

Hint, hint. ::P:

Once Reaper puts together something like this, I'm out. No more. Done. I quit. Finished. Game over, man.(maybe)

Note: Those are NOT epic scale space marines in the picture.

the pic on the left; i saw that massive scene at warhammer world.  for those who dont know, in 40K, its the seige on imperial palace on terra, with Horus, Sanguinius, the Emperor and legions of space marines, many primarchs, etc.

 

that warlord titan is based more on how the artwork and novels depict them.

still my favourite warhammer titan art :)

 

i know FW cant make titans or the insane warmachines to proper scale but really dont like the design of the current FW warlords... 

 

they made the manta; i say should have made em 3 ft tall :P (manta is 3 wide). they know apocalypse players will still transport them :)

 

us warhammer ppl are nuts :)

 

here's other images of that same battle scene:

dryer sheets are good BUT dense.  most spiderwebs, unless you got some insane Arachnaphobia (film) thing going, it wont fit for all webs to look like that.

 

i recommend trying to separate them a bit; keep some areas denser, some areas very light, etc.

 

I'm happy my suggested reference image for spider models and webbing is creeping ppl out :)

The tutorial I was looking at online recommended taking small amounts and stretching them out quite a bit, which was my plan.

We have lot of huge things, which are neat, but IMHO a lot less useful than tiny things, both on the game table and on the painting table.

 

Bones black would be perfect for a set of tiny monsters, familiars or companions, and one set of them could cover soooo many of the most commonly used tiny creatures.

I certainly wouldn't say that :poke: I'm hoping to see how it looks when I'm done, but securing the webs is something I'm not 100% on yet...

you can dip the parts that need to attach, into a solution of water and glue.  just enough to make a few parts sticky.

 

apply it where you want it at the sticking pts, and it should be good. i've done that for small webbing.  BUT its been maybe 15 years since when i did it :) and it was a very small area so may not work as well as you would need.

As I recall, the Bones 1 familiar pack was a top seller.  I'd love to see how much better they could look in Bones Black.

I agree, I'm a bit saturated on the humongous mini front.

The ship might be the exception, but I don't need huge monsters now.

I like some vehicles and boats and terrain stuff though.

 

And the Spider..that's a must, and still a reasonable size, big, but not over the top.

I want it.

Once it gets to the "holy crap that's big" stage, I'm not particular about the sizes.

I'm the same way. Honestly, I'm not really particular about base size in general, but once we get to 3" base of bigger (aka giants and dragons and... other really big things... ) I don't worry too much about it. 

 

Missed the last hour's numbers. I'll get the next one.

I'm still not as excited as I hoped to be.

Could it be that I've become picky?

Or it could be that as an avid reaper fan, they've already made everything you yearned for and requested?

I'm still excited, even though I'm not jumping up and down in excitement every time. I'm sure I'm going to spend a lot on this stuff, too.

      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.

      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.

      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. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.
