To be honest, it was just set up for the photo…

I am telling you guys, the lava was a DISASTER trying to paint. Sheesh.

I am telling you guys, the lava was a DISASTER trying to paint.

You need to track down Cremmins, as they have the best specialty paints for gamers. I know they have at least three different shades of Lava paint, based on the presumed temperature.

These are the same folks who make tartan paints for doing highlanders, camo paints for different major powers from WW II on, and varied by location (sand vs jungle vs urban vs snow, etc.) as well as invisible paint so you can make an ordinary Predator or ring equipped hobbit into an invisible one

Ooh tartan paint, I need to get me some more of that. Mine ran out painting a unit of Highlanders ;)

Fire, in general, is hard. I learned some techniques from DM Scotty's videos, as well as members of his forum. I particularly enjoy using his wet blending techniques. I have used them for a large fire, for the center of the infamous, Great Hall, of the, "Steading of the Hill Giant Chieftain", as well as a gigantic, home-made, Fire Elemental figure.

And, in play…

Far from professional, but GEtGW (Good Enough to Game With). Cheers!
