Recommended Posts

So I got a newsletter with super early (2020) kickstarter tease (image behind the spoiler).

Now that our last big set, Caverns Deep, is shipping, and our smaller recent projects are entering factory production, we are forging at full speed for our next Kickstarter campaign: The Wildlands! Venturing out into the tameless wilderness, the forthcoming set will further explore the forests and mountains of Mythras as well as adding two new environments to take your gaming to the next level, all created with our signature beauty, durability and modularity. Prepare to journey farther than ever before!

Great, every time I think I have enough to remove temptation, they move to a new region.  I will probably get some of these too

Hmm. definitely will have to wait and see what develops. So far not seeing things in amounts that make sense to me.

I don't need 100$ worth of river terrain trays, they don't seem to have any info about the boards or mats as add-ons, only with the 350$ pledges (so 500$ with exchange and shipping and tax, so maybe 600? with stuff I'm not so into) that are more than I want. Some fun stuff, and of course it looks great, but I haven't used ANY of the terrain I have yet so I probably can't justify it.

Waterfall set and escarpments are also something I'm eyeing.

The prices on Dwarven Forge always make me take my sweet time deciding whether or not I really need this.

Gorgeous, but sadly I don't have a wad of cash burning a hole in my pocket...  That gets pricey, and quick, but oh my are they lovely.

I'm also in the gorgeous but too expensive camp.  I've still oodles of dwarven forge I don't use because it's a pain to haul around and setup.  For me, the utility : cost ratio doesn't pass muster.

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      "Crosslances is an artistic reality consolidated for many years, we have dedicated ourselves very often to model making and playing miniatures in 28/32mm scale.
      This time, however, we want to launch a completely different project, an absolute novelty, our original idea.
      In fact, we want to make available to you these fantastic sculptures of ours, which can be printed directly at home, painted and placed inside your bookshelves to obtain stunning effects!"

      Coming soon!

      The Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter from Kobold Press. 
       
      This is the old school, mega dungeon you've been waiting for!
       
      And, it will be of particular interest to folks here, because one of the things the Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter will offer are a set of beautiful, poster-sized, table-ready battle maps to play on (and use all our awesome minis on! :)

      As Halloween approaches the dollar stores are filling up with cheap decorations and spooky bricabrac. Amid all the potential projects a certain reflective skull caught my eye. Not knowing if it would take paint or not I decided to roll the dice on a few. I attached them to some bases, added a bit of sand, and the next day I took them out to prime. 

      They ended up taking primer just fine, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the primer I use. Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of their grey primed goodness. 
       
      Next up were the basecoats of the skull and "dirt".

      I didn't get great or even smooth coverage on the skulls, but it was good enough as I was just going to add a heavy wash anyway.

      The wash was a bit thicker than I wanted but again I figured it was passable and more than good enough to move onto a final drybrush.

      Not too bad, but there is definitely room for improvement. I guess I'll just have to practice a bit more with my new drybrush. 

      I finally took the leap and tried Uncle Atom's makeup dry brushing technique. Though this project probably qualifies as a failure, I do see the potential. Now all I need is more practice, it's not like I don't have a huge backlog of terrain just waiting to be painted.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!
