Re: Eldritch Portal Inserts

So related question as I see that last pic, and related to the obelisks, etc., How do you go about painting them in a way to continue to allow the light to come through? Just really thin layers? Almost like a glaze? Never painted anything translucent before.

Re: I am happy with my KS5 items

So far I am more than pleased. I haven't tested each of the leds yet and I still need to paint them (paints arriving today!) but everything was there and in good shape with the exception of two freestanding walls that were a bit warped but not enough to worry about. In fact the warping will likely h...

Re: Close but not quite

KS6 had at least five distinct settings: caverns, ice caverns, Underdark (ahem, sorry, Underdoom), crystal caverns, and forest. Going forward, each of those could be its own campaign. For store inventory, each could be a restock. It wouldn't require completely revamping what can be done. It would j...

Re: Close but not quite

I'll echo a lot of what others have said. The shrine issue did not affect me since I did not order any shrine pieces (painted or otherwise) but as a customer, I love the open line of communication and the acknowledgement. I never expect perfection because at the end of the day we are all humans and ...

Another excellent build. I think I gotta get another epic stairs, one set was obviously not enough.
My thoughts exactly. The stairs are just awesome.

Re: Reinforcing Ikea Alex drawers for DF storage?

My solution was simple. I'm too poor to need Alex drawers and only have 30 pounds of stuff! :lol:

Seriously though, these are great threads to keep in mind for when I do have the ability to get more stuff!

Couple of (hopefully) quick paint questions

For those of you who, like me, are painting all/most of your KSV order, I have two questions: 1) Do the pieces need to be washed first? I've seen some conflicting reports about this but figured I would check and make sure. 2) For those painting the translucent led pieces (like the monolith from Eldr...

Re: Pre-shipment Notification

Woot! Got my shipment yesterday. Sadly they failed to accidentally include the lava bridge encounter. :)
