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!
I've gotten to the basing point for Ma'al. I decided I wanted to put ivy vines around the base. While I just did the vines out of green stuff I'm not sure what to do about the leaves. I have a GSW leaf punch that I want to use but I'm not sure how to prep the leaves so nothing weird comes in with them. It's been suggested to me to use the oven but was given no further details. I have other ideas if I can't get the leaves to work but I'd really like to use them since I went through the trouble of getting the punch specifically for this.
So what would you do to real leaves to make them work for basing?
We all keep knick knacks and trinkets to make things from in the future. Whether it's some small bit, like dragon pendant I got from Salvation Army for 50 cents or some cardboard forms that hold tech devices in place that look like good buildings for Battletech.
I wrote about Bottlecaps as bases a while ago.
Recently, I found the plastic mounting bracket that's been floating around my bench and figured out what I wanted to start making. I usually draw out what I intend to do, but the shape of the bracket defined its purpose.
This compilation uses a bunch of various finds. So towards that end, I am going to have a little contest.
Guess all of the items which I used in here and you will get a random Bones mini. I will provide a numbered list and one clue because one SET is fairly hard to figure out.
5. ______ Bracket
Clue: These odd pieces were disassembled from a triangular cap.
The bricks are actual brick I bought off of Wish. I got the standard bricks plus the square in gray and brick red. I also have small triangles in brick red.
The stone was split length wise so it was nice and flat. The terrain is a custom grind of bark, black walnut bark, dark cork and and coarse normal cork.
The gears are from Michael's jewelry and findings section. Some of the white on the terrain is baking soda mixed with super glue.
Here's the piece primed...
Stay tuned and enjoy.
So, before I go any further, I am an absolute rookie in the mini painting world. So, uh, prepare for the worst.
Anyways, here's a trio of Kobold leaders. Yeah, I know there's six of them, but one got lost and the other two need a good bit more work, so it's just these three for now.
As I said, I'm completely new to this hobby, so any friendly critiques are welcome!
I missed a couple spots on the first kobold leader's face.
And a few other random spots elsewhere on all three.
All of their bases look nasty...
I didn't do their eyes, as I want to get a bit more familiar with this before I try doing something like that.
Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.) Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster. Maybe patience does come with age. :)
