Re: Need More Trees!

I really like what I bought - 12 trees with the scatter bases and the escarpments. They integrate well with a woidland game mat and tree placement is very flexible. I plan to buy another load about the same size. I marvel at the large DH forest tile layouts, but too far outside my gaming budget for ...

Re: Was the crenellations color mismatch fixed - but only for people buying NEW stuff?

My castle stuff sits in ruin. Evertime I touch these beautiful mismatched tower battlements they end up hurtling to the ground. I am less pleased that the paint is mismatched than the fragility of the engineering. I think both reflect inadequate prep work that more recent KSs have improved upon.

Re: Caverns Deep and Darkhollow should have been two campaigns

I think there is lots of room for Architectural based KS. As examples, a set of Dwarven styled elements to build Moria on top of the existing KS1, KS4, ad KS5 sets. Elvin architecture for high elves. Sylvan elves dwellings leveraging the KS6 DH and KS7. Orky and goblin villages set above ground usin...

Re: Painted tree trunks and stumps help

I used Golden High Flow Acrylics Burnt Umber to lightly drybrush the stumps to darken them to match the trunks. Not a perfect match, but close enough for government work. My plan has been to use a 4'x6' game mat from Deep Cuts called Muddy Field for my table. I am going to put a 4'x6' white board un...

Re: Painted tree trunks and stumps help

I noticed a few stumps dont have the drybrushing except on the stumps. So I may try undoing the drybrushing with a woody top coat. Mostly just a bother that interferes with mini painting. I agree with all that say they paint there own to avoid these problems, but I would never get it painted if i bo...

Re: Painted tree trunks and stumps help

Base wood dry brush on the trees themselves and also the stumps, at least the upper quarter, to match the tree. If they are dry brushed a lighter color on top of that (it will be obvious if they are as it will be very light) I would try 2 parts stucco to 1 part base wood. The key is that you do the...

Re: Painted tree trunks and stumps help

I just received the 4th part of my KS 6 order. The trees and escarpments. The stumps came awhile back. I chose the painted sets with woodland terrain trays. I was happy to mount the trunks to the stumps. That said, the stumps and roots have a drybush on the bark and roots; however, the tree trunks ...
