@Arbados - You might want to peek at this thread here for another idea or two that are nice.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

Thank you LordDust! I have to slowly move further into the 3D terrain process! There is so much that can be done its quite intimidating, but fun! I figure I will start trying to make some of my own stuff after I have bought all there is that I need on the regular market. Once the well runs dry then I will probably start doing my own stuff. For Christmas I'm getting a bunch of 3D accessories. After this I think I have to start looking into making my own!

No problem! Adding the rhinestones onto the treasure piles is easy and adds a lot of visual pizzaz. You can also mix a little glitter into the paint you are putting on them to give them a bit more sparkle. I've started with very simple modifications of existing things. This lets you start to get the hang of more advanced crafting techniques with faster results and can be easier.

I have rebased a few Dreamblade minis and Heroclix to make more minis for my use as well. You can also do simple mods of toys and figures that are the right scale so they fit in with your existing 3D terrain. It can be a lot of fun and very cost effective!

That mixed treasure pile is great! And the rest of the pieces look just fine. Looking at them, I would not think you are just starting out. Paintng terrain is how I learned to paint as well. Pretty soon you'll be applying your new skills to miniature figures, I bet.
Nice work, thanks for the post.

Thanks, Arcarius2001, for the compliments!

It's not my first time painting, it's just my first time painting miniatures. Now that I have my Reaper Bones in I'll be attemping a miniature... now, which one should I pick?... hmmm... ;-)

Something without eyes! (:

Eyes can be very frustrating, so I'm doing miniatures with them last!

Your terrain looks great. If you want, you can pick up the Reaper Learn to Paint Kits, but the best one is Kit 2: Basic Skin and Cloth and it's usually out of stock.
