Soy-based Paint Test 1- Termite Mound terrain Piece

In my continuing efforts to find weird stuff I found some Soy-based Craft Paint at JoAnn's a week or so ago. The first test piece is this Termite Mound from Acheson Creations.
 I used the Cocoa color on this mainly on the base and the rocks on the base.
 The Soy Paint had no trouble mixing with other craft paints and some old Partha Paints I have.
 It worked well drybrushed onto the sides of the tubes.
No problems adding a brush-on matte sealer. 

And now some 28mm figs with the finished piece.

 The piece will work well with multiple gaming genres.

Some Pics From GenCon 2014

Once again pics from a not great little camera built into another device. And of course I was often too busy drooling to remember to get pics of everything...

 These first few pics are from the Wild West Exodus booth- Sci-Fi Wild West minis!


 From the Mantic booth, this is the best pic of their large build with their terrain tiles from Deadzone. Not as cool as the Terrain Tutor thing but still pretty impressive.

 Someday I will do a flying Island thing like this Fantacide terrain piece. I want one!

 Some Robotech minis from the Kickstarter.
 These Robotech RPG Tactics minis look really good in person. The sprue samples they had don't look as complicated as I expected (especially the Zentraedi stuff which was the main reason I backed the Kickstarter).

 Some X-Wing minis set up on one of those really nice/really expensive gaming tables.

And finally a Crocodile Games Titan on this card terrain that's made of some dry-erase material. This stuff is pretty sturdy because that mini weighs quite a lot (all metal).
