I'm wanting to run some basics of crafting so help out newbes as well as stupid crafter tricks and how to make some stuff. It's not pretty or polished but wanted to get it up an out to get some feed back.

Got a serious headache starting... good excuse to take a nap and charge my batteries.
Can get the basics built on a simple no frills altar. If I'm doing three variations on the same thing is it better to have three vids or have them all together?
Figure have some builds as well as foundation lessons.
EDIT: I had not watched Wyloch's water/acid tile vid and then saw it later. Was very similar to the slime/acid practice thingy I did. I left like a d-bag for not giving him a plug... Managed to add the tags to DM Scotty's smoldering ruin vid as well as Wyloch's acid tile vid. Wanted to link to a practical application/example of dry brushing.

No need for that. No one owns a patent on any of these techniques. I am certain I have done something in a video coincidentally and independently of someone else before.
Just a courtesy thing as well as wanting to link from a practice type example to a practical application.
I remember sitting in geometry class thinking what practical application does any of this have. I would have learned it a lot better if we had a pool table and some pies to see just what was what about it .
Personally I love seeing different takes on things so if I end up knowing someone has done something similar I link to link to to it just to give another example of a different take on it.... For actual builds I love being able to pick out a few cool features from people and trying to get them to work together.... That's just my crazy scatter brain way.
I have had some people ask me questions about this...and got a good tip from someone about an easier way to pop them from the bases (thanks Matt). Put them in the freezer for a bit.
For the most parts we're all adults here. Acetone and nail polish remover are the same thing. Like a dremel, hot glue, or razor knife be careful with them or they will hurt you. Don't be drinking the acetone, huffing it, splashing it in your eyes, smoking a cigarette (or whatever) while working with it. Rubbing alcohol is teh same way and most of of use that and have a bottle of it sitting in our bathroom medicine chests.
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

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!
