the original flameskull mini is selling at 1$ each. they are cool. i have 3 of them.
as for the maps, of course a big map wouldn't have all the small villages. map scalling is a real thing and at different scales you dont see the same things.
the sword coast map you have from the adventurers guide is a continent map. it shows capitals only. Neverwinter, Baldur's gate, Waterdeeps. it shouldn'T be showing smaller villages.
the map in the starter set is region based. region based you even see the way smaller mountains, things that do not show on the continent map. going even smaller would be the city wide maps. those are literally only a day travel from one side to the other and shows even single houses on the map.
anything from wizards of the coast respec those scales... World Maps - shows the whole world, the capitals of every country and the only the biggest of forest, lakes and mountains Continent Maps - shows more capitals, more forest, lakes and mountains. Kingdoms Maps - Shows the states and provinces of the country. cities that are 6000+ habitants shows off. Region Maps - Shows the state itself with everything drawn.
those scales are detailed in 5e dungeons masters guide in the drawing it out section.
all that said, i understand the need for a world map detailed with everything. but as i drew my own world map for my world. it was getting cluttered a lot and most of the stuff i ended up removing because well. its too small to be noticed so why did i put it there.
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 !"
Umm ok. This map is actually a combination of the SCAG map and the SKT map. Thanks for your valuable input though. I am not sure why everything I post requires your critique and you feel the need to educate me on something. Sometimes less is more. "Nice Map" and move on...or nothing at all.
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!
