Haven't posted pictures of my stuff lately, but I made a western building, the sheriff's office about 8 months ago and never posted a picture of it. I had not put in windows yet as I couldn't decide how to make them, but after seeing DM Scotty's windows from his tavern, I'm going to do something similar. It'll mean cutting the walls, but that shouldn't be to hard to do. So below is a picture of the office, sans windows and doors.
The wagon wheels I bought off of Ebay, they're Lego wheels! The bar is just Popsicle sticks and match sticks, but I do need more, so I'll take some photos of me making one or try to video it. I keep threatening to start doing videos, but I've got to clean up my work area first. Should be able to do it around Thanksgiving time!
At the very least, I will do a picture tutorial of the bar!
It's been a while since I last posted some pictures. Took a few tonight, but since I took them on a while table, most except the mini came out too dark. But here is a mini of my newest Pathfinder character, a Dwarven Cleric of Gorum.
Guess I'm going to have to retake the photos on the wood floor, which is a little darker and won't reflect so much flash.
Going to go ahead and post the other pictures. They look fine on the camera, but a little dark on my computer, I think it's my monitor, which is old and is displaying too dark. Guess we'll find out.
First two pictures are of some cavern pieces I did for a convention game last year that I ended up not running as I was laid off from work two weeks before the convention and really didn't need to be spending the money.
The following two photos are for a silver mine which was also made for a game at the same convention. Will probably use them this year at this year's convention.
If they're really dark, let me know and I'll retake them.
Finally, the last photos are of the lift machine for the elevator which is in the photo above along with the elevator shaft tile.
Thanks guys. They look a lot lighter on my work machine so my home monitor is getting dark, but I'll go ahead and take some new shots on the floor, that should make the show up better, like the floor of the sheriff's office above. For the deep shaft, I tried painting it, but I just didn't like the result, so I have a lot of paper craft model sets and one of the sets has a deep shaft in it so I figured, why not!

I thought the shaft was painted too. Good thinking with the cut and paste. Are the tracks pre-made or scratch built? I want to make some mine tiles with tracks, but have been waiting to find some HO rails.
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!
