@jchunick - The Wargames Factory Skeles actually have a base bit that lets you do something very similar with their skeles. I believe they have two per sprue in there, so there are enough to do several that way if you like, plus you can then select the head style (helmeted, gaping jaw, or standard are the ones that I recall without looking) and even choose to have them using a weapon in hand to lever themselves up.

I wasn't sure I would like having to assemble the minis, but the options for posing and weapons actually make it pretty cool.

I just got my Wargames Factory Skeles in today! Woot!

The variety and amount in the set are fantastic... kind of delicate, though. You have to be careful. I almost broke one of the legs already.

I'll be figuring out a pose and trying a, probably, resin pour... actually, I'm interested in the glue gun technique and found a hacker page describing how to make your own coloured glue sticks here: hackaday.com/2011/08/14/make-your-own-custom-hot-glue-sticks/ using crayola crayons. If all goes well, then I might have some pics later tonight.

I'm thinking the glue gun technique will prove to be a cost effective and pretty decent way to make removable inserts that last passably well.

It is true the Wargame Factory skeles aren't as durable as some of the other brands, but the versatility and price make for a nice buy anywho. I have already used some of the bits to start some projects, I'll have to post photos once I have my hands on a camera that can focus well enough. I look forward to seeing some of your results jchunick. Thanks for taking so many photos.

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...

These look amazing! Great Job! This was exactly what I had in mind when Stefan asked for ideas about how to do the Rivers/Lakes for the Dwarvenite Caverns in this thread: www.dwarvenforge.com/forum?func=view&catid=514&id=50202#50464


Now I wish I had ordered one of my COS not painted.

Simply, wonderful Quorthon13! I love the black goo looking one the most. Very informative and they turned out great!

Pool Painting and cleaning is very important to look it attractive. I think Epoxy pool paint is very efficient and effective color which can make your pool more attractive then its original.

Anyone take a shot at the glue gun version of this? Sorry for the borderline thread-necro, but I'd love to do something like this with one or both of my CoS pools and if I can get reasonable results without going whole hog with realistic water, so much the better. I saw you mention you were going to try the gluestick method, jchunick, then no word.

I haven't tried the gluestick method yet. I have everything I need ready to go, but I kind of ended up focusing on other projects. I should revisit the pool, though. I'll give it a try in the next few days and let you know.
