Weltenlaeufers Expanded HQ Universe

Postby Weltenlaeufer » Monday April 15th, 2019 7:41pm

So my project of expanding the Heroquest main game with some outside areas went 3-d last week. I finally bought some Dwarven Forge caverns. I was blown away when I opened the box. I expected a lot from these guys....but not THIS... :shock: :shock:

Here is the cavern entrance. I think I gonna chase my group through these a lot before they start the mainmission.

Thanks to Krautscientists help I also finally started painting my minis. :mrgreen: A huge thank you! Without his tutorials and advice I wouldnt have dared touching them and even if they would have never come even close to an okay paintjob. Beer in Krakow, brother! The offer stands ;) :mrgreen:

Here are the first of the painted ones...I tried to get as close to KS"s paintjob as I could...still a long way to go. But I am super happy that they look okay so far. I would have never thought I could pull that off. :)

And the skeletons...still a few things I wanna add (at the blades).

And a few orcs I was working on today...still a few more steps to go here as well.

I think there's going to be an impression issue ... the entrance to the main mission is far more impressive than the bland, normal HQ board :P. It's going to go pale in a superb way, compared to the caverns. Do you plan to also do something similar for the main board, though?

The mainboard is so awesome...its all modular you know. :) I really love the regular Hero Quest Board. Its just incredibly cool! I was thinking getting some simple wooden elevation blocks and a black board canvas to just put the board above the caverns once they have passed through.

In the winter I maybe gonna build 3 d version of the mainboard with Hirstarts molds but thats a whole nother project. :) I saw a really nice 3 d version of the board that inspired me. Now its painting minis mission for me. I took a break from playing with my group until I finish the minis. :lol: :)

Yup, it was a mistake in an order I made cause I wanted to get regular size door for the mainboard. But here the size fits perfect, I just had to pop it in there. ;)

Glad to finally see your thread, mate! :)

That dungeon is just unreal! It came painted like that, right? In any case, what a fantastic gaming environment! I am notoriously stingy with spending money on terrain, especially premium terrain like that, so I am a bit envious of you, both for owning those pieces and for actually making the decision to go ahead and buy them.

Your models are looking great -- I am so happy you've been getting some mileage out of the tutorial and painting tips, and the results speak for themselves -- great work so far! Keep painting! :)

Thanks brother! Great to hear your positive feedback on the minis!! I am really grateful for your instructions. And yes, my painting mission is on! :)

II gotta say it took me a couple years after I saw my first Dwarven Forge caverns online to take the plunge. I fell in love with them back then but didnt think of actually buying them because I had no context on how to use them. After getting HeroQuest earlier this year, finding this forum and getting so inspired I worked myself up to it. When they arrived I had the same feeling like when I was a kid, unpacking HeroQuest on christmas eve, or getting the Skeletor castle! :) :) You can see there was a lot of love put into these. Its really terrain-art what these guys are doing. :) And yes it came prepainted.

I gonna finish the remaining orcs this week and then off to the fimirs! :):) Cant wait to play again once I am done!
