  5. Those look great next to the figures. I am very into the idea of using tiny models rather than counters in wargames.

  6. I'll go with all of that. Very well made. Smoke and explosion markers, and any markers for that matter, add a lot to a game.

  8. Good looking markers. Markers like these look much better than card discs or somthing similar with words on them.

  9. They could also double as an amorphous monster of some in a pinch. :)

  11. Very nice and very useful. I'm sure they'd just as well for 15mm and 28mm gamers.

  14. Those look good. I wonder how easy something like that would be to scratch build.

  16. Explosion markers. How 'bout that.

    ReplyDelete
  17. They look great. I need some.

  18. Why are they blue colour, Lurk?

  19. @Dezmond and Daniel: They're actually black and drybrushed grey and white. Bad lighting on my part.

  20. Not to be a spoil sport...but with cotton you could have made them yourself?

    Now they look good and all that, but are they worth it?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I never knew they made explosion miniatures!

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Lord Siwoc: I hear what you're saying and I do have the cotton wool ready to go but I liked these and I believe they're worth the money and I'm a terrible scratch builder.

  23. Look quite real when seen from above but I think it will be better if the color is red.

    ReplyDelete
  24. First I've ever seen of these, cool stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cool! Never painted an explosion before. Nice job!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Cool - those look good. I know you mentioned above 'poor scratch builder', but Ive seen some good smoke effects using clump foliage too. They dont LOOK to hard to make...

  27. Explosion or blue broccoli monster? Either way, very cool stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well they can be useful, but I quote Lord Siwoc, cotton is the way :D

    But "Blue Broccoli Monster" is brilliant! :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is cool, they really have miniatures for everything. I couldn't tell what they were at first, they looked like some kind of monstrous fungal growth or something.

    ReplyDelete
  30. i thought they were stones at first, awesome :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. Excellent painting, I had a friend who used to paint the Warhammer figures. I never appreciated the art of painting these things until I tried one. Not-so-easy. Nice work!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I can imagine making explosion sounds with my mouth and knocking down a handful of soldiers in the blast vicinity. Fun stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Really Astronomy Pirate...explosion noises...how old are you?? you have to have the sound of the shells coming in before the explosions!! :-D
    (and maybe a bit of MG fire in the background as well)
    They look good fran...I tried some recently...(why, I haven´t an clue...not the sort of thing for medievals) but they buggered up anyway-
    Cheers

  34. Is it me, or do they look like pieces of painted coral?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like 'em. I do. They just seem a bit shrubbish.

    ReplyDelete
  36. they looks more like an old ladies bush than an explosion....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wait, so you don't set off little explosions? WHAT'S THE POINT?
    Ha, but to echo another comment, I never realized they made explosion miniatures. I just assumed everyone cut out red stars from constructions paper.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Very cool, they can also double duty as moonlit shrubbery

    ReplyDelete
  39. blue explosions, lol wat?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Second pic down, second explosion from the left--you can see the devil's face appear in the smoke, facing left and kind of looking at you.

  41. I was wondering how you guys tracked splash effects on your campaign maps. You guys should customize some of those with flying body parts just for poops and giggles!

  42. I seem to be followed by gardeners.

  43. I love the depth and detail in these figures, very nice

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very nice. I'd love to build some like BigLee posted a while back, but these look like something I would actually have time for.
