    Sitting on my shelf of umm.. "opportunity" has been this really cool Bear from DGS games that I picked up at Reapercon 2015 at their vendor booth. Anyhow, we have a druid in my D&D group who likes to change into different large animals and creatures, hence why I put him on a large 2x2 inch base. I'll be doing some tabletop figures of each of these if for nothing else than to have some animals painted up for myself, but he can use them at the table to truly represent his character changing forms. Figure: Bear Form - Urdaggar: Tribes of Valor DGS Games SKU: 114013 C&C welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking!

    Was looking for some minis to break up a lot of the groups I have to paint now and decided to paint this not-dragonborn fellow. A player in my D&D campaign plays Dragonborns occasionally and he usually picks the golden one. He was using a mini I had painted as an NPC for Hoarde of the Dragon Queen (which was therefore a blue dragonborn) but I decided I could paint this guy to reflect the character he plays. Of course the curse of painting the mini is on me and now our group is indefinitely on hold. Anyways, enjoyed the verdigris effect of the shield, can't remember who posted the tutorial for that but I bought Reaper Mint Green just with the intention of doing it and decided that could work for his shield. I didn't want to have too much contrasting silver/gold so his armor is sparkling blue. The hilt of his sword was all weird so I thought it kind of looked like sculpted jade and attempted to paint him that way. The only thing I really don't like is I did my usual matte testors spray over the top of him and he's a lot less shiny than when I had just painted him. I am debating going back over his shiny bits (like his scales) with a semi-gloss but am not fully decided yet. Anyways, thank you for reading!

    My D&D group has been doing Temple of Elemental Evil for the last couple months and there are a fair amount of gnolls, both I think intended and as random encounters. So I thought I should finally get around to painting these. We had based them a long time ago. Had a lot of issues with their stance being too wide for even the normal 1" square reaper bases. Had to buy square 1" wood pieces that don't have the taper the plastic reaper bases do in order for them to stand properly. I think my spouse posted a how-to somewhere in the terrain folder when he based this guys. Did some experiments to get the fur color I wanted. Obviously hyenas are a big inspiration for gnolls. I went with the reaper wood triad (woodstain brown etc. etc.) and that seemed to give a good yellowish brown that I wanted. Their mohawks and tails are the orange-brown reaper triad. Just close-ups of one of the gnolls (Colonel Mustard) since they are all pretty much the same. Batch painted them for the four I had of the one model and the 'thank you pack' gnoll as well. He is a little fancier. Anyways, enjoy and thanks for reading!

    Decided to intersperse some modern folks with my painting since my gaming group had discussed possibly playing a modern campaign in a few months. Picked this guy up to try out my skills on the troopers. Mostly happy with how he turned out. Some details that I didn't quite get the way I wanted, but okay enough for table top I think. Thank you for reading and following along!

    I have Witcher fever, what can I say? I made this guy from a kitbash of warlord games celts and wargames factory vikings. It was a really fun project. Now I'm all ready to go monster hunting! The boots are green stuff as are the belt, buckles and bandoleer.

    I have been trying to do the set dragons don't share. I bought it on ebay for 30 dollars plus 10 dollars s&h. the ruins were easy to base coat and paint with three different shades of grey. I plan to add flocking for grass some sand and maybe more broken stones. but the painting on the ruins is done for now. the dragon went great for such a large mini. I based the dragon in a smokey garnet, then blood red / fire red for the scales. the underside of the wings gave me fits. I used fire orange, flesh wash and fire red. hope everyone likes it. as always feel free with the advice. sorry I lost some of the shading and highlights in the pics.

    Those of you familiar with LOTR SBG may know of the spin off game, battle companies. Aside from being a fantastic blend of wargaming and RPG, I found myself in the mood to KITBASH! Here we have two ladies from warlord games who were given bows and arrows from wargames factory plus the gal with a shield was also given a spear. The Bandoleers are greenstuffed. They aren't perfect but this was my first time sculpting belts and buckles. The dwarf is also a part of the group (From red box minis) but was not modified. PS, scroll down for a group shot!

    There's a couple of electromechanical pinball machines for sale near me for 400 apiece. Need some maintenance but otherwise good. I'm trying to figure out how to fit them in here. Seriously questioning if I REALLY need to sleep in a bed. See, this is why being single doesn't bother me. If I decide that, yes, replacing my sleeping quarters with disassembled machines is fully appropriate, nobody will yell at or murder me. I can do small engine repair in my living room if I want. Who's gonna stop me? NOBODY. Freedom's just another word for sleeping on gaskets and solenoids. Good for the back. Builds character.

    Nora looks adorable! Yeah! i'm actually using Premo Sculpey for the little deer. I got quite a bit done, but this plastic clay seems to just eat into my hands... So I've stopped for now. My work so far if y'all are interested They'll be about 7in/17cm tall. Mine are over twice that height haha!

    I forget now where I saw this guy, but he was on this forum somewhere recently. I loved the sculpt and ordered one and this is the result of my flailing paint at it. I still only have my cell phone to take pictures with unfortunately. The mini looks a bit more crisp in person and and some of the contrast in the cloak is less flat than the picture suggests. C'est la vie. Also, I think Jerach would rock in Bones. I'm just imagining him decked out with some of the armory of virtue stuff.

    Managed to complete some more mini's from the Galaxy Defenders boardgame over the weekend. As with my other GD minis, these were painted with RMS metallics. Then I hit them with a black wash followed by a wash of either Biel-Tan Green or Gulliman Blue. As a side-note, I have to admit that I didn't enjoy painting these as much as the other GD minis and rushed through them a bit. Not 100% sure why but I think it may be due to the lack of a face on these models as I found that I also don't have much interest in painting the rank and file GW Space Marines either. The funny thing is that I never particularly pegged myself as enjoying painting faces. I guess the difference is that the face at least gives the mini an emotional connection that is missing when you only see armour. Continuing the trend, the guns get bigger and bigger! Only just realised that the picture is a little blurry - need to work on my focus a bit more. :(

    This is one of the five in the set, which I've been working on in my WIP thread. he's my test dummy for the theme, which is Luna Wolves. A white/black colour scheme which I converted to be light grey and black instead. I've always liked the Luna Wolves, in the stories from Horus Heresy, before they fractured into Sons of Horus and loyalists, so my take on them is right before the loyal Luna Wolves know that their Primarch, Horus, turned to the dark side as it were (aka Chaos). They were dropped on Isstvan III, where they expected to meet resistance, but it was actually a ploy to get all the loyalist elements in one place. Horus then virus bombed the planet and killing off almost all of the resistance to his take over. Anyway, so, my basing is based on fairly new wreckage of an urban type area.

    Hi all, I shot at monday but I missed, it is still here!!! Feeling kinda stressed again. Will see a medic later on the day. I'm getting fed up with this .. Today I can pick up my parcel from Reaper containing paint and the Brood Dragon I ordered. Somehow this Dragon screams "Paint me like a big tropical bird!" so I might.. Right after my other 20 projects I've been reading up on some Dutch Comics, I had lent them to a nephew, maybe a year ago. Now they're back and I find myself going like...hmm..don't remember that one, I started reading again. In Dutch they're called "Suske en Wiske." Funny, Since I'm a hobby Chef coworkers from both my former position as well as this one have nicknamed me The Swedish Chef. This aside from being called "The Herminator" ( because Herman and Martial Arts) or "The Red Baron" because Air Force and being a redhead ( well was, since bald now). Put a matrass on the pinball machine, add blanket and try not to break it or fall through it...??????

    I used to think that flail snails were ridiculous. Turns out they're far too tame for real life. Ladies, Gentlemen, Those Whose Gender is None of the General Public's Business, I present - The Mail Snail. The shell and scales are actually impregnated with iron, to the point of being magnetic. Makes for terrible escargot or paella only a dentist could love.

    In the meantime searching on the Bay of Evil.. I found a Chaos #ss Cannon. The originals go for triple digits these days. This one is a resculpt..he looks the part, slightly different but great face. Plus original crew. So I figured, what the h##k? It was a very reasonable price, and I do want it as a centre piece for an Oldschool Chaos Army. I bought it.. Am I a bad person now???

    So, I drove approximately 120 miles today without my license. I mean, technically I have it, but at the time it was at home, on my couch, where I left it after placing my reaper order on Friday. On the other hand, I realized I had memorized my license number. I just drove slower than everyone else. Which was still five mph over the limit, but I don't think it much matters when you're being passed by almost everyone

    Latest update is good, even though there's not much to really show this time. I finished all the carving and deepening of lines with the sanding stick. I pushed in random blocks on all but the stairs, though they really don't show that well on the main tower walls. I airbrushed primer onto the whole thing, which was an interesting experience. I had the PSI up between 40 and 50 if I remember correctly and I almost never go over 30, but priming would have taken forever otherwise. I tackled the topmost level with something akin to a drybrush using a large size 12 nylon brush that I usually only use for dusting models before working on them. I based everything with P3 Battlefield brown, then made an ink wash with Liquitex transparent burnt umber, then took a hair dyer too it to speed up the drying process, then drybrushed with P3 Hammerfall Khaki, Jack Bone, Menoth White Base, and then about 3:1 Menoth White Highlight: Menoth white Base. Below are two pictures from two slightly different angles. Do you guys and gals think I need to add one more level of highlights? I want to get my process down before painting the rest of it.

    Well, at least you tried. I hope your medic can you hope out with the stress issue.
