Mushrooms!
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:38:41 AM »
Hello,

A while ago I asked a gaming buddy of mine to make me some giant mushrooms for my new  table and here is the result :)

I'm pleased with them, But I'm not sure if I'll just paint them or try and make a mould and do some home casting  :?

 what do you think?

Cast them. A table full would look great and I'm sure people here would like some so you could earn.the cost of the resin and mold back.

They do look SPLENDID. Your Buddy has a real flair for the subject & some impressive sculpting skills. VERY WELL DONE!

+1 for cast & sell. Depending on the paint job they could be useful for:-
Pulp/ lost world; 1950's 'B' movie; fantasy & Sci-Fi (to name but a few).

Thanks,
These seem to be more  popular than I thought they would , so me and the sculptor are looking into  getting these professionally moulded and cast up for sale :)

What else would you like to see in this set, some Giant man eating plants?  or even some Mushroom men?

Cheers

Alien trees for Sci-Fi games.
Spore bushes also for Sci-fi.
Giant Lilly pads for lost worlds.
Hugh plant tendrils to decorate lost temples.
Just a few ideas off the top of my head.

It would help if most of the above were 'modular' which would allow greater variety,
after all you don't want all of your alien trees exactly the same, do you?

You seem to have the knack so why not make a line of terrain and base embellishments?  I'd buy stuff like that for my Fubarnii, Elvorix, and Vidaar!  :-)

Nice mushrooms. I'd be tempted to buy these even if I have absolutely no use for them.

I'd buy a small forest of these for a cave system!

If you do cast them up I'd be interested in buying some.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

Thanks everyone :)

We've been in talks with someone to get these moulded and cast, so they will be available  quite soon :)

there's also some more bits and pieces being worked on, so I'll post some updates as soon as I can.
