ah, we can only get lollipop sticks easily, and they were a bit big for what we wanted, which is why we switched to coffee stirrers, everyone was asked to grab a couple of extras if they saw some anywhere

If you and I ever do a swap, I would be happy to pick you up a couple packages of stir sticks and send them your way Smiley

hehe thanks, i think we have enough for now, where i used to work, i was allowed to buy a whole box of stirrers for 50p, though i should try and get some pics of our stuff to share with you

I love these! How long would you say these take you to make on average?

These are awesome! I would never have though of using pink foam! Do you have to wear a mask when carving? I love the mountain top the most - the moss looks so soft! Cheesy

It really depends on the project. If I'm doing a building, I have to draw up the plans, measure everything. A couple of weeks to a month per project, I'd say. The long time lapse is waiting for glue and paint layers to dry. You're kind of stuck twiddling your thumbs a lot of the time. The good thing is, you can kind of set down one project and pick up another and I generally have several things on the go at the same time.

No, I don't wear a mask for the generic pink foam carving with an Xacto knife. Though cleaning up the derned pink bits and pieces (that stick to everything!) is a pain in the arse.

When I'm using my hot wire cutter to cut the foam (a tool I am so lucky to have) it's probably best to wear a mask, but I usually just put my shirt over my face. The same goes for when I have to use my molds for the castle blocks and itty bitty pieces, pouring the resin smells and usually needs a mask.

Just out of curiosity - what type of tutorials would you guys like to see in regards to miniatures? Should I just do a bit of everything? And should I post under misc.?

Beautiful!  I am really in awe of your work, and I want to play DnD with you, too! Cheesy  Since you asked, if you do decide to do tutorials I for one would be interested in how you make the realistic textures and paint effects on your rocks.  But a little bit of everything sounds good, too.  Wink
This has really inspired me, so far I've only painted the little miniature figures, it never really occurred to me to make scenes.  My husband is always after me to try to make Warhammer terrain, but since he's not playing right now I don't really care to, haha.
