I am running a campaign and my heroes will be up against a Blood mage in the end. I am looking for something that can be a center piece for the blood mages throne room and final battle ground. I thought a fountain was to cliche. Looking for any and all ideas and suggestions.
Blood running through pipes, like in sewers. Thats a lot of blood even if you have only one pipe that contiuously spews blood, and your players probably don't really want to know about the source of it...
With a different paint scheme, my smelting pit (here and here, large version here and here) would make a good blood pool. Also, thisone would work as well with blood instead of molten metal. The combination of blood (fresh and coagulated) with rusted iron is somewhat disturbing to look at - probably exactly what you want for your bloodmage scenario!
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.
when you think about it, it all comes back down to fountains... thats the problem with liquids, its hard to make them into something else then pits, basins or pools. what remains is what you can spray on it.
like altars with blood splatters. or like others mentionned anything that is made to transport the blood from point A to B. though scotty made a living room that could be having its own blood vessels in it. with a giant heart in the center. that could make for a good encounter.
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 !"
The blood mages I have read about don't use giant pools of blood - which would result in an even larger volume of dead bodies to deal with. I have only read the details of a few blood mages in passing. Maybe blood-red sigils on the wall and floors? While perhaps not as exciting as a river of blood, there would be no issues related to keeping the blood from coagulating and rotting. If you want an unusual contrast, what about white marble walls with all the blood-red décor?

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!
