Created some walls , tryed using pipe cleaners to make the structure. hot glue doesn't stick well to them to say the least. but i got decent results.
about 4 sticks of glue to cover up a 3 inch long wall and about 7 for a 6 inch long. i'm now out of glue sticks though. so i'll have to buy me some more.
really a fan of making the structure first instead of multiple layer of glue. but i recommend the high temp glue gun and the big ones too. letting gravity do its job is also a nice way of doing the thing.
druid:"Do you need healing ?"
knight:"i still have half of my health, so im fine."
DM:"the boss, crits, max damage which does 20 damage !"
Heres what i made, not finished the last 3 and i need to do the next 6 3 inches.
but, heres without glue.
Heres all of them...
heres a closer look.
heres the close up.
my biggest concern is the coloring... i used DMG method. but it looks more like wood then sands and stones. so i was wondering how you did your coloring ?
PS: ditch the pipe cleaners. use strings of metal instead. the glue doesn't stick on pipe cleaners and so is the paint. but some structuring does work. also, try and not leave any wisps going. though that may make it look like a root and that may give you a good detail. but yeah try and not leave too much wisps !
Dude those look great! Almost like in a cave under some forest. I like the root-ish looking pieces. Dark brown and black mix base coat then lighten with brown white and a bright red is what I used just adding more white on the next two layers.
Well, the purplish tint in my pictures comes from the bad lighting (pics taken either under a neon light or besides a window with cloudy weather outside). But anyways, it's my favourite method of painting cavern walls. Or at least sediment rock.
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.
erho: I will once again rise above Lurker status if I ever get back to painting, Real life work transitions... Adulting

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...

erho: Yeah I'm down for a painting contect
Jun 8, 2020 14:28:59 GMT
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!

erho: I have a confession: I havnt painted a thing in months because I got a new guitar(#8!) but now that May "Megadeth month" is over I have a repaired airbrush and a early 90's Ral Partha Amethyst dragon on the table... pics to come soon!

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!
