Well y'know it really didn't take too long after all.

I mean I need to paint some more barrels, doors, and so on...and badguys to populate it... But really the hideout is more or less done.

Learned a couple lessons working with the materials so a future project should go more smoothly. Maybe a more modular setup with the upper wall sections being free and just I dunno bluetacked down per session.

I found a quick and easy way to paint those wooden barrels from hobby lobby. Just get a medium brown marker to lightly paint them which kinda stains them letting the grain show through. Micron pen to draw lines for the boards. Silver sharpie for the bands. Done. Need to do a touch of rust so they don't all look brand new.

That's a cool dungeon setup. What materials did you use?

Thanks. It's largely that 1" extruded insulation foam. Bottom layer with 1" gridlines and top layer cut to fit dungeon map.

Also the thin walls are printed paper spray glued to paperboard. Had them from another cancelled project and upcycled them.

Little Spackle on the natural walls. Bit of paint.

Crate painted on to a cube. Thoughts? Acceptable or replace with proper 3d?

Acceptable for D&D as it will get handled a lot.

You certainly didn't mess around with getting that dungeon put together!

As for the cube, it depends on your criteria. It's certainly good enough to game with in most any context. It's not up to the standard of a lot of the other terrain projects that you've shared on here over the years, but as a purely gaming bit of scatter, it's fine.

It's a simple process and I got some extra time last weekend. The walls were already made too.

I agree on the crate. I'll probably make a few but not many.

There's a defunct castle in the same adventure that's almost the sa.e footprint so I may make it too eventually.

That one will take some more scheming as there's technically an outside and players could potentially be out there. Gonna need something easy for round tower walls like those project bricks or something.

The first cave/dungeon/whatever is also a similar size but has an awkward sloped situation with certain rooms on top of others kind of. I didn't do that one though I'll consider it if I run this for another group someday. The last dungeon is significantly larger so I'm not as sure about that.

Fast and effective work bud. Looks spot on for gaming. The box is certainly good enough, it does it's job perfectly.

Did a couple more in more reasonable sizes. Also added some red to some old free companies and now I've got a small gang of bandits.

Randomly bought two six shooter heavy walker tanks from dust tactics for $8 each. Price was right, they come with two turrets even. May try to tread them into tanks or just leave them alone dunno. The six shooter guns look like a great start for rifleman dreads. I'll get them whenever I spend another 43 or so dollars at mm lol.


Seriously considering gutting my Dark Imperium budget (which is nearly matured) to buy D&D books. DI is an insane value but I am in doubt of getting to play and both factions are dangerous slippery slopes of future purchases. I still plan to paint Dark Angels I own, of course, I need *need* that 2000 pt army completely painted achievement lol.

Was anyone *really* looking forward to me painting DI anyway?

But looking over my hoard of minis I have a fat army of forge fathers and at least as many enforcers. I think both offer at least as much as numarines or nurgled00ds. Of course doing those would make me want mantic tanks to go with

Anywho, for the moment I'm working on a couple of bugbears and an evil mage to go with those bandits.

I may do a mini-challenge for kicks. Would like to complete the monster list for the dnd starter Lost Mines of Phandelver.

Ooookay. Weeel... It's not that mini. 119 d00ds I think. Could probably shave off upwards of 11 if I re-weighted the encounter tables and didn't paint unnecessary NPCs but still... An of course I've got some of it painted already like orcs and goblins etc. May just have to use orcs as hobgoblins since I have none of those...

Hmm I'll draw up a list.

Keep DI for a reward when you finish a bunch of that stuff, then. You don't need the D&D books - I'm sure someone else you know has any that you'd really need. Or buy a couple of the most useful/interesting D&D books and keep on trucking towards DI. I'm wanting to see you paint them up, for one...

You underestimate the smallness of my town goodsir . If I want a dnd manual it's on me. I do play rarely and they're not necessary, but fun/inspirational to have around.

But if people really are wanting to see me paint DI hmm...

I almost bought one of thos, I might still snag one as the guns may fit the dreamforge leviathan fists.

I still kinda want one of those. Ultimate enforcer robot or something. Maybe I'll try to catch one on a black Friday sale, I like it better than the 40k knights generally speaking.

I'm hoping the guns translate well to autocannons on dreads. I always wanted a couple of riflemen and effectiveness/continuation in the codex be damned. Maybe say screw it all and keep the triple guns

Rifleman Dreads are still a (Legal) thing, it's just that they're via the Forge World indices now.

Also, log onto Steam and message me when you get on.

Yeah I remember hearing non box options fell out of the codex and ended up index only or whatever.

And I shall do that

It always comes with the Gatling arm and sword arm in the box. The killer is shipping, since he doesn't have a distribution chain. The Morris version was $4 more I think and comes with scythe arm and fist.

He's warehousing everything himself and doing all the work, so around Labor Day and Memorial Day he always has a huge sale. If you plan on it you can save big, but shipping usually kills it for most people. He had the old WGF 28mm Russian and American troops for around $10.

Theo- no no noooooo keep the good sales away from me

Archer-would be a treat. Too bad the only way is roll20 (or equivalent) and that precludes the dungeons

Yep, I think I may have to scavenge for some more. Kinda have that disenfranchised soldier look as opposed to the classic Robinhood style bandits.


I need to seal them but here's the bandit leader Glasstaff and two bugbear minions on loan from cragmaw castle.

Also included is my WIP Nothic, a crazy former wizard who got mutated after some failed magic, a dug too deep kinda situation.

Nah, it's magically hardened

Yeah, I have a feeling they're there to watch the bandits for the BBEG wizard who's in charge of them and their little wizard as much as they are to help.

Big huh? Cool, maybe glad I ordered two then haha.
