    I've liked this mini since I was a teenager. Finally got to paint it up. Thanks to everyone in the WIP thread for your advice!

    Me: "I only have these few drawers left to paint before I have all of my Dwarven Forge terrain painted." Six year old daughter: "Then will you retire from painting?" Me: *thinks of all the KS4 terrain due to arrive in the next month or two, and all the unpainted minis I have* "hahahahaha"

    I seem to have gotten stuck in some sort of time loop. I think I'm free of it now. Hopefully I won't wake up tomorrow and have to electrocute a hamster all over again. At any rate it's officially spring here. The porch snakes are out. I'm going to need to start checking my washing machine again lest the babies go for a ride.

    Painted A LOT today. Got 5 minis completely base coated and 1 almost fully base coated. I need to do washes on them and put eyes on too. At this rate I'll be done with all of them by the end of next week. My back hates me now though, I'm sure it doesn't help that it was sore before I started.

    I've read the Harry Potter series but I never got absorbed into it. Don't get me wrong they're well written and the fact they got a lot of people reading again is excellent, but I've never felt the urge to reread them. The Dresden Files however are a different case, even if the wait time to Peace Talks is beginning to resemble the gaps in the Dark Tower series.

    My MiniatureMarket order, a box full of WizKids unpainted minis arrived today. I would say they are worth the price, the detail is very good for the most part, very similar to what the site pictures look like. I had to open some right away and slap some paint on them, so I picked the female elf sorcerers. There were some rather annoying mold lines, but I didn't have any issues removing them using a knife (like I always do on every type of mini). They seem to take paint very well, I didn't wash them first, so the primer claim is definitely true. The proportions are more true to life, so the heads are a bit smaller than Reapers heroic proportions. Tiny eyes! I like them and I will buy more of them for sure.

    I ordered books six and seven, as well as the next Princess in Black book (she reads to me and then I to her every night). Due to arrive Sunday.

    In general my perspective is that the General Comment so far have been much nicer than they had been prior to the final container details being known and announced. A few negative posts today is nothing compared the storms I've waded into. And let me be honest, we've failed to meet projections, and failed to meet expectations. I understand their angst and frustration, even as I recognize the causes and realities of doing business with partners overseas. So I don't let it bug me.

    No painting of any sorts today. Current model kit is stuck in limbo on the account of a paint mixing for a part. It's not that I can't mix paints I just don't feel like doing it. Also I'm trying to mentally picture what the actual color by looking at the colors. 3 colors used: Gold Leaf, Flat Aluminum & Flat Brown. Thinkin it'll be a brass or bronze. I'll probably do it tomorrow.

    You should only have to go to the project page and click on the latest update. No pages. In fact, I'll link it for you. Or link to the link. You get the idea.

    I really love making minis for our RPG group- and here is a party for one of our campaigns. The group consisted of three trollkin and a farrow (who might have been a trollkin in a previous life- or maybe the next one). Only the first one has no conversion elements. The one with the fell blades was a Fell Caller with Doomreaver levels. Overall, I feel that this was one of our poorer intelligence parties- it was kind of a surprise that they ever got much done.

    Had a customer walk into my store and request a painted Orc for a Monster Campaign he and some friends were going to be running. I figured send this was going to be a "hero" monster played by a character the armor would be somewhat maintained so I painted it with a small amount of rust as apposed to a large amount like I would normally paint it. I figure a monster trying to rise to power wouldn't let his armor go to waste. I hadn't done one before but I think it turned out great. The skin has more depth then the picture shows the lighting kind of washes all that out. If you like what you see I got more on my FB page. I'll be posting more both here and FB in the future.

    "Junk Food"reading, I am going to have to remember that. I have a few that would fall into that category. I love Michael Crichton and have read all but three of his books. Really looking forward to the release of "Dragon Teeth" as I thought "Micro" was his last.

    I look forward to fulfilment, and while my husband is impatient and a bit cynical about when that'll be, i'm willing to wait until the arrive. I'm Wave 2 so i know i won't be waiting till the very end

    Decided I'd put washes on once I finish everything so these aren't technically done but this is what I did today. Eyes at the end too. Male gunslinger: Male and female Ranchers: Female prospector: And the Nun:

    Yeah, I felt like it kinda lost itself 2/3 of the way through the series, and the ending is a major downer (and also felt somewhat contrived). But I still like the series, lol. It's part of what I call my 'junk food' reading: tastes good, nice for a quick snack, but not very sustaining, and a constant diet of similar works wouldn't be good for me. I'm going to move onto some Michael Crichton next, I find his books to be intellectually stimulating. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I was going to suggest a non-Earth-shattering kaboom, but... ... this seems cooler. Now, what happens if you fill a pressure cooker with expanding foam? (Answer: Definitely not good things. Don't try this at home, kids. Unless your home includes a bomb range, in which case, you both terrify and fascinate me and I want to watch you from a safe distance.)
