As a quick review, I intend to feature the Descent board game as an example of how the cavern molds can be used (once I end up making them). I am hoping to have several volunteers to paint the miniatures in exchange for molds. I would need these miniatures painted during the next 2 months while I'm working on my house and the cavern molds.
When I display the board game on the web site, I will also include at least one photo of the miniatures you have painted along with your name giving you the credit for the paint job.
I also want to point out a few general guidelines:
Here are the heroes:
I would like the painter to do one complete set of 5. I know that's asking a lot, and many will not have time to devote to that many. I'll work out how many molds a set would be worth for the painter. I will also be more specific on what color to use for the clothes (I'm pretty flexible here). All bases will be solid black.
Some of these monsters are very large! The more difficult paint jobs will be worth more molds
I would like the painter to do one complete set of monsters. In the first monsters shown (the goup of skeletons), I will need the painter to paint all 9 skeletons.
This first group includes 6 white skeletons and 3 red skeletons. This means that six of them will be painted normally with gray or earth colored rags, and three of them will have red robes. I'll give more specifics on the colors for each group of monsters to the specific painter.
I realize that on the larger monsters, some of the bases are warped. I'm not too worried about that. All monster bases will be painted solid black as well. On the winged creatures, some of the wings will need to be glued in place with a good model cement.
As painters claim a set of models, I will put an "X" through the photo and mail them the models to paint. Once I receive the painted models, I'll then ship them the molds we have agreed upon.
When I finally complete the cavern molds, I will include at least one photo of the paint job done by a painter along with their name credited on the web site. Please keep in mind that it will take a few months before I complete the cavern molds and have the web page written for the update on the site.
Each painter will have at least 2 months the complete the paint job for one set of heros or monsters (possibly longer). If you have any questions in general about how this works, you may post them on our message board or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. -Bruce Hirst
