Apparently a tote is still coming? And I already got texture patches.

Things are currently getting scrubbed.

More visualizing. Need to find my craft paint so I can start things off.

This is the bridge, stairway bottom, 1 cliff piece, 2 bank wall, 1 bank piece. And Reaper Bonesylvanians & a boat.

Base/prime coat for Stairway of Violence. Way too purple for my tastes - is literally a drop of everything I think - but easy to change. A different wall is in there for comparison. I expect to do a coat of dark grey, drybrush light grey then creme, then give it a wash of some kind. I'll have to see where it's at then. It always amazes me how much paint is needed.

First time doing anything in 10 days...

Going to finish base coats, but I really like how the raw sienna and medium really brings out the limestone-y feel.

Did thin wahes of 4 different greens. This is much more obvious in the photo than in real life. Next will be browns - already too much blue /red from base. Then another wash and drybrush. Maybe more yellow /cream /tan as needed and a few spots of water.

I wanted to shift stuff from a straight grey I did a coat of a light brown heavily thinned with medium.

Here's  a midway pic to show the difference.

Bottom left is old grey. The rest is new warm grey.

So on a whim while debating whether to back the wildlands KS, I checked some packing pieces from a Swedish company's storage solution. Banks transition very nicely (so tiles on top would work) to extend the use of my cliffs (wish I'd bought 2 sets last time).

Not perfect but good enough

      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!

      So I salvaged this bit of 16×20 particle board from a broken picture frame. I'll be using some of my foam core to make a city square/crossroads board with my foam rollers. Something for city games that isn't too time consuming, but is also good for a wide spread of genres with the proper buildings and scatter
      The tough part will be steaming off the paper and cutting down the various bits for rolling.

      While I love painting miniatures, painting terrain pieces is also fun! I started these two this month and finished just yesterday. I’m considering getting these two pieces again and do a desert themed set.
