Welcome to FigurePainters.com where we make your hobby dreams come true! I provide high quality painting for miniatures games of all types, from Warhammer 40k to Warmachine/Hordes and anything in between. I have been painting since about 1995 and I am active in the hobby aspect of the games too.
Please take a look around and feel free to ask any questions you may have!
I went and made some potion bottles and loot trackers to go with my boards. Here are some quick pics and I made a little tutorial on making the bottles over here. Enjoy!
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I spent it running games at our local Super Winter Mini con. There was a Warmachine Domination release event that I ran. (BTW I am a PP Pressganger too. Pg_Menelker), Warhammer 40k Tournament, Malafaux tournament (Which I won. Yeh Neverborn!) and of course Super Dungeon Explore!
People had a blast playing on the 3D boards.I have to say they they are holding up nicely and people seem to love playing on them. It is fun seeing people walk into a con, see this bright red thing from across the room and walk over ignoring everything else and ask "What the heck is this?" Usually I would reply with, "Have you ever played Gauntlet? and most of the time they would say "What is that?"
Usually I would reply with "Damn kids, know your history!" Well at least I would in my head. After that I would go on to explain it and see if I could get them to play. It made for a fun weekend.
I have more SDE stuff to come. Just need to get caught up on some painting......
I have my Super Dungeon Explore boards all finished up! Just in time for the Mini Convention we are having at Cal Poly this weekend. I still have to make a board for the loot tracking, but that can wait till next week.
You can see more pics of them here
The new pictures are the red ones farther down the page. The brown ones are my Descent boards that I was using as a stand in for pics of the minis.
I am getting closer to having my custom Super Dungeon Explore boards finished. I have them all base coated with the red/orange theme I am going to be using. Some of the boards closely duplicate what came with the game and others I have just built on the fly. Now I just need to go in and do all the highlighting, lighting effects and lava. They should be a blast to play on once I get them all finished up!
Right now they are a little shiny from the spray paint, but that will be dulled down for the final product which will let them photograph much better too.
I one of the pictures you can see our bunny Cricket running around too.
I finaly tracked down some more hydrostone locally. Shipping on this stuff is more than double the product cost so on-line realy was not an option. I picked up a 100lb bag so I should be good for a while. Now it is back to casting parts for my Super Dungeon Explore boards. I have a covention I will be running it at next weekend so I need to get busy if I am going to finish 5 boards in 10 days!
In the evenings when I am not painting I have been working on some custom Super Dungeon Explore boards. I have two that are assembled and I am starting to paint them and two more that are in progress. I ran out of plaster so I am waiting on some more before I can finish up the boards I started and make some more.
