Re: Why do so few miniature painters use oil paints?

You have to use solvents (white spirits), it's really tough on brushes, and drying times of 1-3 days are the main reasons. The dry time can be an advantage because you can blend the paints essentially as much as you want, leading to super smooth color transitions. Oil washes are nice because they fo...

Re: D&D Icons of the Realms ship

I will just have to pretend they are oars locks (ports for oars) and it is a good old galley. In my world those ports conceal arbalests/ballistae or throwers with pots of oil to start fires. They don't have to be cannons just because they are weapons ports. They can also be ports for the oars to go...

Re: D&D Icons of the Realms ship

I hope these ships are selling well. I'd like to see more premium pieces like this getting made.

You have to take care with storage or the 8" by 8"s will warp after you get them.
4x4 does seem the sweet spot to prevent warpage. Bigger floors can take some work to get flat.

Re: GIANT Kickstarter... or Giantess

Almost as much as I paid for a Creature Caster huge mini...too much for what is being offered, IMO.

Re: Kickstarter 7 teaser?

4x4 also gives more flexibility. You can still make an 8x8 square using 4 4x4 tiles. But you can't make an L-shaped room of the same area with a single 8x8 tile.

Re: Kickstarter 7 teaser?

I would think they would stick with 4x4 for anything likely to be underground, so that they can match up easier with all the previous dungeon and cavern tiles. Larger rooms work better with miniatures. ;) But what does that have to do with tile size? You can make big rooms with smaller tiles, you j...

Re: Kickstarter 7 teaser?

Those look like 4x4 tiles to me.

Re: Monster Terrain

I like these trees, but they are about $12 per tree. My ideal price for trees is $5 or less per. I like the modular design and the fact they are pre-painted, so I might consider going a little higher for these. They do look like they'd match up well with DF trees if you wanted to fill in your DF for...

Re: D&D Icons of the Realms ship

$179.99 is pretty cheap. Tempted to get a second one.
