Ancient Temple from Zealot Miniatures

This Ancient Temple from Zealot Miniatures is finally finished. It was another of those pieces that was half-painted on the painting table. There was a quite noticeable gap between one of the pillars and the roof that I was annoyed with and that kind of put a damper on the whole thing.
The other day I found a box of Poison Ivy from Army Painter stashed away among other terrain-stuff and that spelled the end of the gap.
After drybrushing with different greys, browns and greens I super glued the poison ivy in place and tried to hide the gap as well as I could. This temple will serve well in both fantasy and Pulp/Cthulhu-settings.
I’m really pleased with it.
Zealot’s got a lot of interesting stuff in their store and a visit there might prove expensive J

Kickstarter Watch – 3D Printable Pyramids & Dungeon Terrain

3D-printable scenery kickstarters seem to pop up all the time now, which is a good thing as it will entice people into buying their own printers which will grow the market even more.
Herewe have printable pyramids with interiors. Everything is modular and looks like it would be easy to fit together. 
I would have preferred OpenLOCK as that system makes everything compatible with other manufacturers.
You can chose several different pledge levels – tile sets, stair cubes set, pyramid cubes set, Mayan cubes set or everything in one go.
Everything looks interesting and if you need a pyramid or two it is certainly wort looking into. The Mayan ziggurat looks fantastic and should be in every table-top jungle J
Lots of stretch goals as soon as the campaign reaches its taget.
This KS ends on July 30.

If you’re interested in more 3D-printable-terrain kickstarters then look here.
I hope to repair my (not to brilliant) printer in the not too distant future and/or buy a new one. Then I’ll try to review as much stuff as possible from all manufacturers I have stl-files from.

Kickstarter Watch - Stronghold on the Borderlands

A new 3D-printable-terrain kickstarter went live earlier this week. This one is a bit different as not only can you pledge for a huge assortment of stl-files for you printer, you could also get resin copies of two types of forts.
Well, this looks just great. If you need to build some sort of borderlands fort or fortified village this is a very good candidate. It could also work as an orc village or the base of some other nasties that your heroes want to vanquish. 
You can chose to pledge for different walls, buildings, towers or everything, off course. There are simply a multitude of uses and enough parts to cater to most of them.
The more I look at it the more tempted I am.
If you don’t own a printer, then all is not hopelessness and despair as you could order a resin-fort instead. They look just as smashing and you’ll get the stl-files as well.
Several stretch-goals were unlocked on the first day of the kickstarter and it seems to putter on well. I look forward to seeing how far it goes as this looks so interesting.
This KS ends on August 9th 2017.

Kickstarter Watch - 28mm Modular Buildings

The last month has been quite a 3D-printable-terrain-kickstarter-bonanza. It’s a good time to buy a printer for your gaming needs J
Here’s another kickstarter, this time modular buildings from Hayland Terrain. You’ll get walls, roofs, corner-posts and whatnot suitable for modern settings, western, steampunk and wastelands. Everything is OpenLOCK compatible which it a great plus in my book.
I see lots of uses if you want to build something fast for a game. The modern set with flat roof would work well in a game of Dust, for example. That one is really tempting...
Update: It is now possible to pledge for specific building sets.
It's going quite well and several stretch goals are already unlocked, for example those above and below.
It is also possible to get a whole lot of modern scenery as an add-on. Excellent if you have a printer with really high resolution.
This KS ends on July 26th 2017

Zombicide: Black Plague – Evil Troy and Queen Medea

Evil Troy and Queen Medea
These two are Necromancers with special rules for use in Black Plague.
We’re going to use multiple Necromancers for a change to spice up our games.
Evil Troy could also be used as an adventurer as an added bonus.

It’s summer which means more time outdoors and less time with paints and brush, so expect about one post a week the next month or so.
Tyresta National Park, Friday July 7.

Kickstarter Watch - Printable Tabletop Terrain - Alsace - timbered buildings

It’s a good time to own a 3D-printer as there seem to be a lot of printable-terrain kickstarters now.
Here’s another really interesting one, Printable Tabletop Terrain - Alsace - timbered buildings.
€40 gives you stl-files for printing a host of buildings useable for games set in Alcace or wherever you feel that these buildings fit.
With the already unlocked stretch-goals you’ll get a lot of very useable buildings and clutter.
It’s really worth a look.

This KS ends on August 13th 2017.

Tom Bombadil and Goldberry from Mithril

These two figures come from the vignette In the House of Tom Bombadil from Mithril, and portray Tom and Goldberry.
I’ll use them as non-combatants in whatever games I fancy, definitely fantasy for both, but Goldberry could probably be used in other settings.

They are on the small side compared to a 28mm fighter, probably more like 25mm 'scale'.
Another couple of ‘civilians’ ready to face the deadly gaming-world.
