While not new to Dungeons and Dragons/Role-Playing, I am definitely green as it pertains to miniatures and tiles. Always knew they add some flair to the game, but was worried about the dent it would cause in my wallet.
Having discovered DM Scotty's videos, I decided I would give it a try..
..and aside from a few hot glue burns, me and my games are the better for it!
Looking forward to learning and contributing from the community. We are, none of us, alone.
So without further ado..
Hello.. My name is Defiled Cross.. and I'm a crafter.
I dip my fore-finger into the watery blood of your impotent, mad redeemer, Writing over his thorn-torn brow: the true Prince of Evil, the King of Slaves.
And to continue with the confessions: I am tauster, and I am a craftaholic. (I'm typing that with hotglue burnmarks on my left trigger finger and a sawcut on my right thumb, so this confession can't be too far away from the truth...)
If someone tells you that you have enough craft suplies and you don't need anymore, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Welcome to the forums. May your glue always make strong binds, may your cutting implements cut straight and true, and most importantly may your muse never decide to abandon you. If he/she gets a little uppity just wander the forums and after seeing all the inspiring posts from others, well they usually come running back to force you back down the path of crafting.
Draklith: Hey everyone just a quick stop by to see if anyone is still here, hope everyone is doing ok

sgtslag: This forum seems to be slowing down. I hope everyone is still crafting, safely! I will be here until they turn off the power... Cheers!

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
Sept 23, 2020 2:51:57 GMT
sgtslag: Hoping to acquire a Chop Saw within the next two weeks. Then I will cut up MDF into triangles, to form the skeleton of my d20 fantasy world globe... Posting will follow, with how-to guide. Cheers!

margaret: too bad you can't post your music here =). Hadn't seen that dragon - looks like it came out when all my cash was going to raising kids. Looking forward to seeing your paint choices!
