    /dusts off brushes I haven't been around much, mostly due to personal reasons and work and responsibilities and and being an adult BUT I've finally finished something. (For once) That and CMON is coming up and I realized I hadn't painted a single thing. Typically ReaperCon was the rush to get things finished but without it being in April (Sobs uncontrollably) it has increased my procrastination status ten fold! So finally, here she is, as finished as I'll get her at my current painting skills. I could probably list things that are like "OMG lets go over that again! Or that again", but then I'd never be able to show her off o_o.

    Saw these pics, and though immediately about some forumites, because of their avatars... First Second And this one kinda reminds me of a few... Hope you got a smile or 2! You know who you are! George

    I painted up Dub here to be a thief for Frostgrave. One of the main things I wanted to do was get the cloak reading as black rather than grey, so I'd love to get people's feedback on it. You may have noticed that he's looking a little bloodied, but that's because of the big honkin' mould line running down the middle of his face. I mentioned to my wife that it made him look like he'd been punched in the face, which got me thinking - why not run with it? So I glazed his face with magenta and smeared some Tamiya clear red over the offending area. Feel free to let me know what you think!

    I picked up a bunch of Sandra Garrity orcs from the factory last ReaperCon, and made a start on them with this fellow to test out my intended colour scheme. Still working on trying to get my shadows and highlights in the right places. Praise and thrown pottery are welcome!

    We're watching Babylon 5 again. It's interesting to see early 90s CGI and attitudes from 2016 perspectives.

    This is an old Grenadier figure from way back in the dark ages before some of you were even born. I hadn't realized it before I started working on him, but the figure bears a striking resemblance to a very well known religious figure. I hadn't intended it, but I think that resemblance may have subconsciously influenced me in how I painted him. Anyhow, I hope you like him.

    I wanted to paint these guys for nostalgia reasons. They were some of the first minis I played with, back in the early 80's. The sculpts and casting are terrible by today's standards, but they were fun anyway.

    Really?!? I love those great old machines. I've kind of had my heart set on a foot-powered one for a while, just for nostalgia's sake. At the moment my workhorse is a bottom-of-the-line Sears Kenmore machine, all mechanical with no computerized bits to go "pzzzt" at inopportune moments. I've sewn cushions, curtains, costumes, leather aviator caps, clothing for the whole family, and tailored suits on it.

All I can say is thank goodness my sister is in a different country from you two. She'd be over there in an instant attempting to raid.... and learn!

    Watching the special edition of Aliens. Apparently I have not done so before as I don't recognize this scene. It feels like I'm watching it for the first time now!

    My take on Mashaaf, as a Broodmother defending her slimy clutch! The spots along her side are supposed to be photophores to glow in the dark caverns, pin points of light to lure prey to her maw. The skeleton is from Cinder's base her WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62524-77375-mashaaf-the-broodmother/

    Welp. About finished a cave troll and an Aaron the Conjurer. Using nice, shiny Reaper paints. Actually painted the troll straight onto the Bonesium, which I've never been wont to do, but he seems to've turned out all right. Aaron I'd "primed" with blue liner, some time ago, and I's actually really irritated with how some of the paint wanted to go on. Like, Khaki. Didn't want to stick. Blue's always been the lamest primer for me, though. So I'unno. But might change some priming habits. I don't know if I really like the paint all that much, but it is really simple. Just pick a paint and go. No thinking. I mixed a little white to try to really jump up a highlight for Aaron's spell effect, but otherwise just went with the triads.Don't know how I feel about it.

    The movie actually only makes sense in that form because the sentry gun scene added back in answers the rather salient plot hole of why there's no beasties between Ripley and the queen. But I find the extended Hadley's Hope stuff, while interesting, does suck some of the creepy suspense away. Works better without it, because if you already saw Alien you know what's coming anyway so you don't need the exposition. And if you didn't see it, and don't know what's coming, the extended "eerie silence" when the marines arrive, sans visual foreshadowing, turns the creepy factor up to 11. Best form would cut the "living colony" stuff but keep the sentries. That'd make it tight and leave no holes.

Sorry you are so far away, it would be yours in an instant.. Le Sigh.

    Good Aftermorning! I would offer a greeting hug but I seem to be held in place by a rather large amount of webbing at the moment!

    First off, here's two of the conversions i showed up above all painted up if anyone is interested. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68185-77024-bones-goblins/?hl=%2Bbones+%2Bgoblins Here's another conversion that I did recently: Half-orc Anhurian crossbowman. Ok, here we go. Check out the crossbow; it's cast kinda weird so that one arm is thicker than the other. Normally, not much of an issue, but I don't like it,so I'm going to replace it. Here he is with the arms cut off the crossbow. Here, I've carefully removed the original head in preparation for swap. You can see the original head, the replacement head, and the part I'm going to replace the end of the crossbow with. The new head (taken from this fellow:http://www.reapermini.com/FigureFinder#detail/77042) glued in place. Here I'm using some green stuff to repair/rebuild the back of his head. Here, I've added some more GS to his head and sculpted it to look like a chain mail coif. The bit shown above attached to the end the crossbow. It's the end of an old GW Dark Elf Crossbow; I left the blade on the end of it, as I thought it made it look like a weapon that a half orc might use. Just another view of the crossbow. Look for him to be painted in the very near future. I hope this is useful/inspiring to someone; also, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

    How Very Cool !!!!!!! I would have enjoyed the Brooklyn Bookstore Crawl. I haven't been to the City in ages ! I met up with an unknown Cousin yesterday (with her 82 year old mother). At the end of the visit I said.. "Oh, a Gift for you".. and gave her 40 cookbooks".. ROFL. She was speechless ( I know she likes to cook). First Editions of Julia Child, Leone's Italian Cook book (from Gene Leone of Mamma Leone's Restaurant, and European, Jewish, Moroccan, Russian, and Scandinavian Cookbooks. Think she flipped over the Two Fat Ladies cookbooks. I had all of them. Two shelves empty, 12 more to go !

    My exchange recipient this spring was Evilhalfling and he was looking for an example of monochrome. Now I'm certainly no expert on it, but my first attempt worked out ok so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'd just recently ordered a Rowena for myself (which I still need to remember to order again) and I figured all the layers and textures would make for an interesting exercise in monochrome. (Note to anyone starting out in monochrome, do not start with a figure with a whole much of different layers and textures.... ). She was a challenge for me but in the end I think she came out pretty decent. Part way through I realized I didn't really know how to paint ribbon at all (ribbon isn't really big in goblin or ogre fashion this year...) so that took a few days of research. And while researching monochrome painting a found an interesting video of someone doing a warjack and he used a black/silver metallic with it that I really liked, so the metal parts ended up going that way. Then while asking some advice from the Monochrome Master, Corporea, introducing some brassy colours came up. So overall, quite happy. And if I don't use Pure Black or Pure White again for the rest of the year, well, I''d be ok with that.....

    For 2mm, I'd recommend Hair Roller Armies. 6mm is large enough to show detail, though, so I don't have any good suggestions other than to trade Reaper minis for Heroics and Ros (or whatever).
