Okay not too late, but I decided I wanted to do some painting before bed.
I went a bit mad with the blood effects earlier this evening. I had also redid the rust on the armour as I hadn’t stirred the dirty down rust effect. So although I shook it like mad for ages, the important bits were stuck to the bottom.
I added some flesh wash to the ghouls as they looked a bit naff.
I will hopefully carry on with these tomorrow on my day off.
I eventually got the third roller printed. This evening I did a test to try them out.
I got a 40×40 base for each roller and then mixed up some Greenstuff and smeared it on.
Two look spot on, the third and last one printed didn’t work as well. There is a bit of a texture but nothing to shout about. The Greenstuff stuck to the roller too. This was probably due to the texture being less pronounced.
I haven’t given up on it, I may need to leave the Greenstuff a bit longer. Either that or make the layer a bit thicker. If it doesn’t work it cost pennies to print out.
Yes I managed to sneak up on the charity shop (thrift store) without it noticing and managed to find super things within! My theory is that if I decide to go in specially then there is nothing I want. If I go on the spur of the moment then I get stuff.
I was going to print off some ‘Word’ calendars for the One Ring and found these… how cool!
I was going to purchase some pots to put the flock in and found a whole pile at 50p each. I got thirteen for £5 so even cheaper as I took the whole lot. The ones I was looking at were £4 for two!
Here are some of them filled…
I also printed a pile more goblins as well as a textured roller.
The above roller is for cobblestones it says but they look a bit big. I would say they are more flagstones. I will try it on something tomorrow. I actually downloaded three in early December and totally forgot about them until today. Useful things to use up the end of a toll of filament.
I actually painted some stuff too…
I tried some of my rust paint on the armoured miniatures. Not sure why but it didn’t work, or at least not yet, so there may have to be a repaint.
Tonight I worked on the five zombies. Now to be honest for speed I went for the ‘standard’ green zombie look. I actually wish I had gone more for the multi hued versions I did for my undead army as seen below…
This lot were obviously all buried at the same time and resurrected likewise…
I was hoping to get them finished, but they still need a bit of work. Joe is coming for another One Ring game tomorrow night so it might be Monday before I get them done.
While I remember the Big Fire Festival is Tuesday this week and it will be live streamed. Definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it before.
Okay so I haven’t actually done any painting, but I have got the mausoleum finished…
I had a bit of an exciting lunchtime as I tried to set my school on fire when the toaster failed to pop up… at least I know the smoke alarms work! Full evacuation occurred, plus I didn’t get any lunch as it was carbonised!
Tonight I decided to get to grips with the tuft box. By the end I was making progress whilst being somewhat grass covered myself.
First off I tried 4mm and got good results. I then tried 6mm with a lot less success.
First off the 6mm on the box didn’t really do much as it had clumped up too much so after a bit of head scratching I got rid of as many as I could. They came out ok in the end after a bit if shaking from above. I did some blobs and the static pulled a couple off the paper. I shall not be beaten so I decided to de-ball myself, or rather the static grass!
I shove my balls in this device and shake them from side to side I then believe things will be better.
Like the box, I will have to play with some balls until I am happy with the outcome.
Finally this evening I printed the first of my Swamp Goblins…
I am in the process of printing a unit with hand weapons right now.
