Those look great! I love the Middle Eastern vibe. The range continues to grow. Very unique.
I couldn’t help but notice you are not posting pictures from your workbench as much!28/10/2019 at 15:43 #12541030/10/2019 at 14:32 #12553730/10/2019 at 15:19 #125545
What a view!30/10/2019 at 17:00 #125555ThomastonParticipant
That’s really impressive. Seeing you create each piece of terrain in there was inspiring.
Looks like an interesting place to role play in.
Tired is enough.

Am thinking about doing a few sections like the below to cast up and sell.01/11/2019 at 19:36 #125696
Reminds me of some of the rpg tiles I made. I even use you baskets and marketplace for scatter.
I like it because you don’t necessarily need buildings. Just pathways. Yours are obviously cooler.

Cool, but not as cool as this I just purchased:
Should help with inspiration and persuading people to let me have that re-roll I want.02/11/2019 at 16:49 #125749
You’ve been busy. Just think, back at the end of 2016 you started with a couple of Copplestone Minis and some Crom rules. Now you have a whole town with residents and your own rules to boot.
Cool sword by the way, I like a good sword me. Although I have few historic repos, wasn’t keen on the fantasy ones. But that one looks nice, is it functional? Where did you get it?02/11/2019 at 17:00 #125752
It has blunt edges.
There was a geek event in Thornbury that we all went to, and Samantha and Charlotte insisted I get it as I never buy myself anything.
So you know, I did.
It will inspire great stuff I am sure!
Thanks Greg, the empire grows.
Praise Be To Apis!02/11/2019 at 17:45 #125755
It looks like it could be wielded as a single handed arming sword. Too small for both hands and that fantasy pommel might be a bit uncomfortable to use as a bastard (hand and a half) sword. Use it in conjunction with something else, like another sword.
Oh, wait I know of a swordsman who wields two swords! Can definitely see Erland slaying a couple of Gandowana birds with that.02/11/2019 at 18:30 #12575802/11/2019 at 18:44 #125760
Blimey I stand corrected, that’s a beast of a sword! Bigger than a ruddy Claymore! However I was right about one thing. You could slay a Gandowana bird with that quite easily.

I don’t know if I’m impressed more by the sword or the fact you had to be convinced to buy it.
Suffer no evil yee (who? (wield?) this in the name of crom?

I’d let you have your re-roll…02/11/2019 at 22:16 #125773
What you should really do is pick up your daughter at school wearing that in your belt loops!02/11/2019 at 22:33 #125774

But you probably have to be prepared to do some explaining when other parents spot you and the police shows up 😁.
It is a really cool gadget and a splendid way to intimidate your opponent across the board.02/11/2019 at 22:45 #125775
I see, your sword isn´t as big as mine.*
*not what you all think again – actual sword.
Nice one, Mike. I like that. Is this a replica of the sword from the movie? The one from Conan´s father?
BTW, if you let your hair grow I will provide you with a real fleece (not only wool).

So I have 2 road sections half done:
That is a 28mm figure and a 15mm figure.
I think I will add a curved section and a sort of ruined end that just tails off into the ground.
I have a plan to make some accessories to go with it, which may well be the basis for a new Crom Funder as the accessories will be metal.
Stay tuned for more.04/11/2019 at 11:11 #125846
Great job, they look fantastic. Maybe a ‘T’ section? The ruined end sounds like an excellent plan.04/11/2019 at 11:17 #125847
I did think about the tee, but these are quite thin and it should be a doddle to simply chop off a bit off the side gutter/wall and butt a section up to it:04/11/2019 at 13:53 #125857SteelonsandParticipant
Hmm – Mike, those do look useful – particularly with the 28mm figure (Dillinger ?) for scale – me was thinking Dungeon floor plan type of thingie….. Hmm…. Will they be ‘solid’ or bendy-rubbery material when put into production ?
Oh, and BTW – seconding Thorsten’s call for you to grow your hair to go with the sword in his post above – you need to complete the look….05/11/2019 at 16:50 #125975

Now all you need to do is perfect your Appalachia holler-dweller voice (or sub in a drunken Cockney) so you can stand on your front door stoop in your undies and shout “stay offama lawn ya dern varmits!’ whenever any kids pass by!
Thems some bumpy roads. Poor slaves being hauled in their cage carts will have their teeth rattled loose in no time!

You should do a square tile. Could be used as an open marketplace, fountain, dungeon room or fork in the road.05/11/2019 at 18:01 #125981
Ahm, short question in between: What does the terms holler-dweller and sub mean. This is one of the few times the internet let´s me down with slang terms. (I THINK it means something like homeless ( derogatory) but I´m not sure.) Thanks in advance.
"In strange grammar this one writes" - Master Yoda05/11/2019 at 19:07 #125989Gone FishingParticipant
I’m thinking holler-dweller means folks that lives in out of the way places up in the hills (as in “hollow”), though I stand to be corrected.
Mike, the road sections are looking good. If you’re feeling devious, once you get the curved section on the site you can offer it twice, once as a left hand turn, and again as a right. Might increase sales!05/11/2019 at 19:38 #125991Ralph PlowmanParticipant
The only place I’ve seen the term Hole-Dweller is Tolkien’s translation of the word Hobbit.05/11/2019 at 21:48 #126000
Fish has it right. People that dwell in the valleys and dales of the Appalachian mountains (hollows, or “hollers” in local parlance), know to be “backwoodsy”, sort of backwards and uncultured, sort of like the locals found along the river in the movie ‘Deliverance’. Sub just meant “substitute”.
I agree with the above Mike, if you’re going to do roads you should probably do curves and corners, if for no other reason than completeness and to broaden the possibility of people not into Burning Sands being able to purchase all the gamuts.
"I saw this in a cartoon once, but I'm pretty sure I can do it..."05/11/2019 at 22:11 #126002
Thx DSG for the explanation. I´m always surprised how many terms you encounter…
@Mike: I agree with the others on those tiles. Besides this if you make different ones they may be liked by customers not reguarly interested in your stuff. Those tile would easily work well for medieval cobblestones in 28mm too.

Looking good! I suppose two curves will make one 90° corner?
The marketplace idea sounds great too, though I could swear I saw one in resin before for 28mm. Maybe at Tabletop World.06/11/2019 at 15:15 #126020
Brilliant, dude! Those look fab. Both the curve and broken piece really work well.
