Community Call for Help

I find myself in need of help from our awesome Dungeons and Dragons Community in creating some pre-gen Characters that I can use to make sure I can always include anyone at my table when Nerdy re-opens. I would normally try and do this myself but I’m finding little free time to work on these so I am asking the community for aid.

What I Need:

10-15 Pre-Gen Character PDFs. Each character needs to be level from Level 1-20 with a PDF cheets for each level.

What I am offering for your help:

Each completed Character will gain you a £10 voucher for this website.

If you are interested in helping me out with this endeavor then please keep reading, otherwise thank you for stopping by and reading this far.

The Details:

Firstly the Characters should be based upon one of the models featured in one of the following categories (so that I can provide the player with a fully painted miniature for the game)

Next please get in touch with your model choice and intention to create a character, this is to ensure there is enough variety in the characters that you create. If too many other people have already created a character based upon that model then I will ask you to select another one, please also include the model’s name or description on the character sheet. I’ll also provide details on where to send the completed character sheets.

Characters will primarily be played in an Eberron/Arcana Punk setting and that should be taken into account, things like prosthetic limbs are readily available and can be utilised at any level. Firearms are also present in the setting (counting at martial ranged weapons) and the following table provides details of all the available weapons. I wont be policing equipment but please make your best effort to keep equipment level relevent to character level.

Any character class and subclass from an officially published Wizards of the Coast D&D book is acceptable.

Magic Items and Other Equipment: Using a slightly modified version of the DMGs Starting Equipment Table on page 38 Characters will receive the following starting gold, equipment and magic items.

Character Level
1st-4thNormal Starting Equipment
5th-10thNormal Starting Equipment, 500 plus 1d0x25gp, 3 Uncommon and 1 Rare Magic Items
11th-16thNormal Starting Equipment, 5,000 plus 1d0x250gp, 6 Uncommon and 2 Rare Magic Items
17th-20thNormal Starting Equipment, 20,000 plus 1d0x250gp, 9 Uncommon, 2 Rare and 1 Very Rare Magic Items

Big Changes Incoming

With some big changes in my personal and professional life coming up I am finding myself with a little bit more time to put towards Monstrous Makings and the range I can offer will be expanding from here on.

What started as a by product of converting lots of things for my old Space Orks army for Warhammer 40k has now evolved. I have since moved onto to 3d design and printing via an outside contractor to produce conversion parts for my latest projects.

Last week I bought an Anycubic Photon 3d Printer and I have been testing it out on some personal projects but with that done I can now move the production of my 3d printed items ‘in house’. This means I am more in control and I don’t need to find the money up front to re-stock each item. Meaning I can now offer a Sale on all of my 3d printed items.

So 20% off the following:


Go to the Shop

I would also like to take the chance to announce the release of my latest 3d printed product.

How to apply Compass Bars to Bases

I have been asked a couple of times now how I go about doing the compass bars on my Infinity figures so I figured it was time for a write-up

First up you will need straight sided bases (the standard plastic bases will not work) and a set of the correct size Compass Bars

Antenocitis Workshop Compass Bars

I like to colour the recesses on my Compass Bars to help them stand out. For that I prefer to use an Ink of my chosen colour but ordinary paint can also be used.

Use the Ink/Paint and make sure you get into all the recesses of the Compass Bars. It doesn’t matter at this stage how messy you are.

Once the wash is dry you will then need some form of sanding medium. For this I prefer these soft sanding pads but you can also use fine grade wet and dry sandpaper.

Using your chosen sanding medium (500-600 grit for me), gently rub over the Compass Bars until omly the recessed areas are still coloured. This will also have the effect of polishing your Compass Bars. You can move to? a finer grade sanding medium to really polish them to a shine if you want.

The next step is to cut out and pre-bend the Compass Bars before attaching them to your base.

You can either use strong side cutters or a strong craft knife to cut the brass sprue.

To do this you will need to bend the Compass Bar around something smaller than your base. I find the lid of a Valejo Paint bottle works perfectly for the 25mm Bars.

Be careful to get an even curving bend, it is very easy to crease the Brass if you are not careful.

You are now ready to attach the Compass Bar to the base. I like to do this once the Figure is on the base so I can make sure the LoF lines up. However you can attache the Compass Bar first then glue your Figure on after.

Lay both the base and Compass Bar on a flat surface making sure the Compass Bar is the correct way up, apply Super Glue (Cyanoacrylate) to the inner surface of the Compass Bar, then gentle push the Bar onto the base. Once the Bar is on, apply gentle pressure around the circumferance to ensure that the bar is fully attached to the base.

…and Voila, lovely crisp LoF marked in a clear and concise fashion.

‘Siege’ gets a lift

A little project I’ve been working on for the last week or so is giving the newly promoted Colonel Siege Brisbane to pose he so deserves. I also figured as other people had already modelled him flying on smoke trails I had to try and go one better.So the crazy idea to have his rocket pack lit up with LEDs came to mind and I set to work on Tuesday evening getting the pose right.​I had a few flickering LEDs left over from my Hurricane project so I figured I could repurpose them.

So the crazy idea to have his rocket pack lit up with LEDs came to mind and I set to work on Tuesday evening getting the pose right.

​I had a few flickering LEDs left over from my Hurricane project so I figured I could repurpose them. A bit of filing and colouring later and I had this.

I started getting some paint on him on Wednesday and couldn’t resist getting a quick video of the lights on with the smoke in place.

Then after finishing the painting on Thursday and Friday I present the completed Siege in flight.

But lets not forget this little guy. Siege’s Rocket Turret

Bulldog Build Complete

I finally managed to put some time in tonight and finish off the Bulldog build. I haven’t been able to more than a few minutes at a time lately so it hasn’t been worth an update but I finally put the finishing touches on it tonight.​ Next step is build and paint. […]

Progress on the Bulldog

I spent some more time on my Bulldog chassis conversion for IKRPG. I mainly added bulk to the torso while defining the 2 panels either side of the head.​I also cleaned off the rivets from around the head cowl ready for scribing the panel lines in. I was planning of continuing on Monday night but a trip to the cinema to see Blade Runner 2049 put that idea to bed.​I did get some work done tonight though adding the first 2 smoke stacks and the grille in front as well […]

​I did get some work done tonight though adding the first 2 smoke stacks and the grille in front as well as smoothing Sunday’s work.

​I then started on the shoulder pads but decided to only do one as I have a nasty habit of sticking my finger in stuff I’ve already sculpted.

​I did some work on the arms too but after photography I decided I didn’t like it so I’ll re-do that another day.
