I’ve been such a slacker

June 18th, 2012 3 comments

I know there’s a bunch of stuff I need to do for this blog.  Most of it centers around terrain.

So far the list is:

  • Create instructions and pictures for making my modular dungon
  • Write the dungeon crawl convention/single play rules.  (I received permission from the original designer to make a ‘fan based’ version.)
  • Write the dungeon crawl convention/single play PVP rules.  Yep.  Two sets of adventurers.
  • Write a whole lotta tutorials on faux stone painting.  I have 10 on my list.  I’m waiting on some smooth floor tiles from Naloomi’s Workshop since they’re the best thing I’ve found for the tutorials.
  • Other stuff I’ve probably forgotten.

Bear with me and I’ll get these done.  Eventually.

Let me know if there’s anything else you’ve seen me make for terrain and you’re interested in knowing how.

Semi Super Secret Project

June 14th, 2012 No comments

It’s only semi secret since I’ve been telling some people about it.  I’ll leave it secret here until it’s further along.

Tonight was spent doing the initial mold line removal and polishing of 3 horse figures.  I remembered how much I dislike using steel wool to prep minis.  It’s messy and frankly annoying.  I need to take it to that level because they’ll be recast twice before being “done”.  I will be speaking with my caster about the best methods to minimize shrinkage in casting.

Tequila and cleaning minis still don’t mix well, in case you were wondering.

On a final note to hint at what the semi super secret project may be if anyone is big into 28mm historical wargames drop me a line.  I may have questions for you.  And that’s all you’re gonna get for a while on this topic.
