So here is a Photo blog of a bunch of crap D&D wise, enjoy...
This one is a group shot of some stuff I did all in one shot. The front 'Fancy' mini was Brian's old PC in my original 4E group, Phalen. He was an Eladrin Wizard with his own agenda, which sounds virtually like every PC in any group ever. The base is from the pre-painted Rakham Confrontation Ragnrarok starter set, which you can get now for like $20.00. That's a steal for the minis you get in that box.
This is just a slightly odd angle. It's not bad, it's just I have no Earthly idea what your looking at beyond a Barbarian and a Cultist in the background. I think what this says is, as bad as I am at painting I'm 10 times worse at photography.
Here's a big bad Chaos Warrior, or as I refer to them 'The Chosen' in my home campaign. He's decked out in some dinged up red armor with a lot of bronze. In fact his swords are bronze as well. I think this is a good example of how the D.I.P. really makes a 'meh' paint job look a LOT better. Check out his fur cape, that's all the D.I.P. baby! He's a good looking mini, and has seen the battlefields in my basement numerous times. Oh and if you look over his shoulders, CULTISTS!
"That is one solid looking Cultist you've got there Ben." Why thank you Invisible Friend, it's damn fine of you to notice these things. If you'll notice he's swinging a bell. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think it's kinda cool. Most of these cultists were cobbled together from WH Flagellent models, bits and pieces from Wargames Factory, and other assorted odds and ends.
Two REALLY shiny shirtless dudes are about to throw down! I wish I could get some of the 'Shine' off of them, but otherwise I'm very happy with my rank and file Barbarians. I think these were again cobbled together from Wargames Factory sets, with perhaps some WH bits in the mix. The fetching red head has some Pict inspired body paint as well.
These two could have benefited from a better picture angle. The Archer has a really cool Tom Selleck 'stache going on and I like the almost drab colors I chose. As for the Knight, I'm seeing a pattern in my painting of Red & Silver a LOT! I've got to make an effort to cut back on that. Otherwise though I like the pose, the mish-mash of armor, and the kitbashed sword arm.
So here are a series, and by series I mean a 'CRAP TON' of photos showing off Terraclips. I was so excited by this product as an idea that I was afraid when I recieved mine, after the year delay, that it wouldn't live up to the bar I'd set in my mind. I was wrong. It's one of the finest gaming materials I own, and building it is a blast.
You have some Heroes holed up in a dead end waiting for the on-rush of the Orcs in the hall. The dude in the middle with the big ass sword and eye patch I painted. He's red and green, I know AGAIN with the red, so he's got a strange Pirate Santa vibe to him.
All the minis in this shot are pre-paints. The Orcs are various DDM pieces, as well as the Halfling in the bottom right hand corner. The two exceptionally cool Heroes are again Rakham pre-paints. As you can see there is dimensions at work here, as the Heroes are trying to hold a walkway. That's the beauty of Terraclips, I can build out as well as up.
This another angle of the above shot. I really like Rakham's pre-paints. My only real beef is that the plastic is very brittle. You have to handle with care. Oh and the cost, while they are cheaper than metals or resin and they are painted, they are NOT cheap.
The adjoining room sees some more DDM Orcs and a really fun looking Ogre with a cleaver menacing a re-based Heroclix, Wulf Sternhammer from 2000 AD fame. I like to litter my builds with these larger rooms with a lot of doors to give PC's a chance to find more advantageous choke points.
Here's another shot, in this one you can see the DDM Orc Wardrummer as well as the Shaman. Again I'm a huge fan of how the archways make the board feel big and open.
Another shot of the 'Chosen' pushing across the battlefield with their trebuchet in tow. All the guys beyond the elephants and the trebuchet were painted by your's truly. I'm sure you can tell because they are all red. GAH!
This one is for the LADIES! That's right I'm looking all suave with that remote on my face, under that hideous blanket, cuddling with M.M.&C.'s dog Cosmo who was visiting. Drink it in Ladies...And Dave...
