Not sure if this is the right place for this… 

 

So I’m painting the Powder Monkey from the Brinewind expansion and I’m trying to figure out what the long low-hanging thing on her belt is. Anyone know? I have no idea how to paint it!

My best guess is some kind of powder horn for priming the touch hole on the cannon. Wood or brass in construction, maybe?

..... Um... Well.... Yeah, no, I won't say anything....

 

When all else fails, paint it metallic.

tube full of fuses or matches?

 

https://rainbowsculptor.artstation.com/projects/k45m8l found the render rainbow sculptor made, definitely a machined thing. tube with a cross piece and a ball on the end?

I believe it is rope, she has a belt and rope around her waist.

Yeah, it definitely looks machined. Since this figure seems to be a bit of an explosives enthusiast I’ll just assume it’s some kind of arcane black powder device or something and paint it like brass or steel or something.

Most likely an emergency energy drink.

@Rainbow Sculptor Could you please shed some light upon your wonderful sculpt?

Received my Bones 5. 

 

Went over the order and my PC Characters core set extra is missing about a quarter of the figures. Mostly consisting of my favourites from that selection. 😔


Shadow of Ravenhome is missing the jumping winged vampire, instead having an additional torso of the other vampire. Does anyone know the number?

Ravenhome did not have numbers listed.  I had two of the same (weirdly undersized) Vampiric Daughters and found that out when sending out my QA replacements emails.

Wow dang, that lost some detail on my copy.  Hadn't realized.

So, many, many moons ago ie when Arakoth the awesome giant spider was first unveiled, I posted about how one of our cats was going to take great exception to it. After all, she was a voracious predator of real life spiders and had previously smashed my GW Araknorok so I was expecting her to try and dispatch it asap.

 

I was wrong.

 

The closest she's been is 2 feet and that was only to see what I had put on the floor for her to see it. She then retreated to the other side of the room and watched it carefully until I put it away into a covered box and took it away. She's not scared, but definitely doesn't want to go anywhere near it! I always said that @TaleSpinner was amazing at sculpting realistic critters and apparently Diva agrees!

Cindermaw in Curse of the Crimson Throne is probably my favorite purple worm encounter.

 

Though how quickly Jon's Shoanti barbarian volunteered to be swallowed alive is kind of disturbing. :lol:

 

The Auld Grump


My players had nearly killed Cindermaw before they realized/remembered they were supposed to be re-enacting a legend about being swallowed and ‘reborn.’ 🤦🏼‍♂️

It is used for holding the small charge of gunpowder that primed the flash hole from the fuse.

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
