How do reveal all that? Pre set up and cover it? Build as you go?
I always reveal the whole dungeon with accessories but without enemies. My game group consists of experienced and trusted players, I game with most of them for over 10 years now and they are always absolutely in character and make no decision (like where to go etc) based on what they as players see but what the characters see. Most of the times it's just "we take the nearest door first" and thinks like that. Works very well this way. Sometimes, when it's especially tricky, they leave it to chance and throw the dice to decide which way to go. True gamers. ;)

I've been kicking around doing an old school feeling mini based dungeon crawl game. Maybe Swords and Wizardry optimized for minis. Kinda counter to each other I know. I just like mini gaming over RPGs as a rule.
I love miniature war-gaming so I understand that completly. :)
My current campaign is more like a very story driven Tabletop than a true RPG. In the past we played a D&D 3.0 campaign with the main focus on roleplaying and also a 3.5 campaign with a good 50/50 mix and right now it's a campaign setting about an epic war. Something like what if evil has won and a few good Paladins are left standing to fight the good fight. Lot's of combat tightly knit together in an big back-story. I think the next campaign will be 50/50 again. We will see, it will take another year or two to get there.


I'm kind of watching Next as a possibility based on their design goals. The playtest reports are a bit worrying though. If be using the basic rules though, so maybe....
I don't know that game setting. What is it about?

Thanks again!
My pleasure! :)

Excellent blending of colors on your miniatures. The sword and the horns are very well done. I'm still trying to master the technique. Any tips?
Thank you, thebigteacher! :)
I painted these demons with an airbrush and I'm still learning how to use it right. I used three different tones to blend them all together, for example the swords were painted with Goblin Green (GC), Livery Green (GC) and Dead White (GC). I'm very happy with the look of the power weapons because this is the first time I painted something like this.
I started with a black base coat and them painted the whole sword with Goblin Green but using less paint towards the handle of the sword. Then I used Livery Green but left some paint from the previous layer towards the handle of the blade. Then I used Dead White just for the top third of the blade and used more paint at the top than towards the middle.
I think this is a rather bad explanation, sorry about that. I can't really describe how to do it because I'm so far from being an expert about working with an airbursh (no one is more surprised than me that the miniatures look like they do) and the languege barrier does not help.
But maybe this helps, I have a lot of my theoretical knowledge from these two guys:

Lester Bursley from AwesomePaintJob.com
Tutorials on how to paint models By Buypainted

They are awesome painters and I can only recommend watching their videos to learn more about painting with an airbrush.

I hope that helps a bit. :)

That set-up is so big, so good, that this set-up gets an Awesome rating!
Thank you, dandare! :)

Just how big is your table ?
I have a modular square table which I bought for roleplaying and war-gaming. I would have bought a round table, but none were modular so I bought the square one. It's 1,40m (a bit more than 55 inches) to each side.

How long are your layers arms ?
You sir must have a huge games room!

:):):) The players on the dominant side of the table (wherever the encounters are at that moment) usually move the characters under the guidance of the corresponding player.
My living room is my game room which is big enough to fit 6 players and myself around the table. And while I have all my miniatures in cupboards in my living room I need to store my terrain collection in another room. That works but it would be better to have all in one room. Sometime in the future I will have a room exclusively for gaming. :)

In some distant future when I can afford a dedicated large room, I imagine setting up a 'U' shaped table where I as a DM can sit mostly centrally and the players can move about the 'U' as they explore. (Maybe a separate table area for the local town / city etc..)
Cool Idea! I would love something like Sorn has. He has the most awesome basement ever, with absolutely great city and landscape tables ready for wargaming. Absolutely awesome! :)

Kronos, your setups never cease to amaze! I love the shots of the demon emerging form the hell gate and the large skeleton rising up over the catacombs. It's like those mins were made for those sets. Perfect pairing :)

Have you been using an airbrush long? Any recommendations, brands or features, for someone looking to purchase an airbrush?

Thank you, Feymous! :)

Sadly no, not really. I got my first one in November 2011 but didn't get a chance to do much with it until the end of 2012.

Any recommendations, brands or features, for someone looking to purchase an airbrush?
After reading a lot about it and looking at various really awesome youtube channels from really experienced painters I decided to go for an Badger Renegade Krome RK-1 Detail Airbrush:



It's really awesome and really great for beginners as for pros alike.

Lester Bursley from AwesomePaintJob.com has made a very informative video about the various airbrushed on the market (he has so many and he paints so good, he's THE MAN), I can only recommend to watch it before buying an airbrush. For me, this vid really helped to decide which one to get:



I hope this helps. If you decide to get one please let us know which one and how it works for you. :)

Beautiful set-up. Thank you for sharing these pictures, I hope to put together something this beautiful with DF and minis in the future as well :). Is the really tall skeleton villain a GW character? I'd be curious to find what name they sell him under. He looks great in the catacombs. I have to agree with Stefan that the den of evil pieces look amazing next to the catacombs.

Thank you CraftyShafty, Stefan and jgardner44! :)

Not, it's at 54mm Andrea miniature: Menhom, Dark Shadow

Thank you! :) I immediately liked the transition between the two double doors and the catacombs. I'm really looking forward to explore the possible combination between Catacombs and DoE further in my next setups.
