just one picture of the Initiative Stones  to start the thread. when I get more time i'll post a few pictures of the other models I have done.

I have three sets of counters, so there will be 6 purple, 6 green, and 6 brown stones. there will be 2 multi-colored stones  for the combat phase. I wanted to duplicate the logo but I didn't quite get the turquoise/teal  color right and it ended up a little more blue.... but blue is my favorite color so I can live with that.   Cheesy   Wink

I will be hitting these with at least 4 light coats of gloss varnish and I use a large soft suede pouch that can fit the whole hand inside for mixing them. this will hopefully keep them from contacting each other too much and reduce the chances of chipping.

Very cute Wink.
I think you should paint the toadstools on every stone. The one on the top left looks amazing!

These look great. A really good choice of colours for your stones, they match very well. I've painted mine too and found that lots of varnish was required!

These look great. The top left one is the one I like the best.

 i do like the idea of painting the toadstools to give all of the stones a unifying quality.... but part of me wants to keep the players' stones in one color branch so the multi-colored combat stones stand out more...... i may experiment and see how it comes out though.   Wink

and just a few pictures of the trade caravan as a group:

* just the caravan starter by itself.


* a couple of photos with the militia escort.

Awesome. (Sorry, too much lego movie...)
Your twilight set is turning into one of the most impressive I've seen! I love how much care you've put into all the extra bits and pieces  Smiley

thanks.  Smiley  

the top left stone came out better than I hoped. I wasn't sure if I'd be steady enough to paint the small areas, but painting the other models in the range has really helped me work on brush control.   Wink

the extra bits and pieces are one of the things that draws me to Twilight. I'm more of a hobby-gamer, than a gamer-hobbyist, so a great aesthetic that sets a tone for good story games is so much the better for me.   Grin

so the scenery contest has come and gone and the summer is past and I have finally had a chance to take pictures of my Delgon and other assorted bits. so....

first up are the Delgon:

















next up are my faction kit boxes. I finished the Dhogu box, as well as all of the initiative counters. also added faction specific dice to each box and the acrylic stamina counters for the Dhogu.  I used the metal combat stones for the Dhogu so their 'stone cup' is unlined with cloth..... I had taken a picture of the combat stones but it didn't come out well..... so i'll have to update that later.



this is the bag I use for drawing the initiative counters as it fits the whole hand. it's soft suede and comes in handy when I also want to keep something packed snugly in the case.


and lastly, some tags for my miniature case... my sculpting is unpracticed, so they're not polished and a bit out of proportion, but I'm hoping to make up for that when I paint them.   Wink  Cheesy



and that's it for now.  Smiley

Wow, those activation stones are awesome!  Great idea on those, I may have to do something similar.

You definitely win the prize for having the best accessories for the game! Smiley
The delgon look great as well (although I'm worried that the KalDromar axes tend to bend too much...). The red works very well as an accent colour.

thanks guys.   Cheesy   Wink

the Kaldromar axes are bent because of how I paint/assemble..... I generally paint everything and then attach the model's spindly bits so as not to block hard to reach areas. in this case I had to bend the hafts in order to attach the arms as the flock material I used ended up raising the butt of the haft too high causing the arm not to join the elbow properly. I didn't want to cut the bottom of the axe and I couldn't remove flock without a mess and possible damage, so the only other option was to bend them.   Undecided   Shocked   but the curve of the axes has grown on me as it makes them look a little more personal and standoutish for the bodyguard.   Wink   Cheesy
