    I have gotten allot of kick-starter backlog done in the past few months here are some Orcs that I did last year. First thing I painted in 15 years....It took me a long time and I have to say I don't recomend "army" painting as a way to get back into the hobby. lol. I quite doing it for a couple of months after that. It was so monotonous. Glad to be back in the hobby again!

    Just finished up my Benedikt Hellhorn from Reapers Dark Heaven Legends line. Nothing too fancy. A black undercoat with a Necron Compound dry brush. The other colors are a mix of Reaper/Army Painter paints. The base is simple with Citadel texture Lustrian Undergrowth and a bit of dry brushing. I enjoyed paintning this figure, especially the skull on the shield. thanks for looking.

    My first transparent mini: I wanted to try painting one of the new invisible heroes from Bones III the other day. This is super simple paint job where I first painted the base, then masked it with a solid coat of Brown Liner for opacity. After that, I quickly painted the wizard with a single coat of a mixture of: 3 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 2 drops RMS Flow Improver 1 drop RMS Wash Medium 1 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue After waiting a day (I was worried the ink might leach out of the sealer or something if I tried to work with it too soon), I painted the exterior of the base with Rainy Gray, followed by a coat of Brown Liner magic wash. To finish, I sealed the entire figure with a coat of Gloss Sealer, followed by a second coat of Gloss on the wizard and a coat of Brush-on Sealer on the base. The result was a very blue, almost candy-like mini. I'm happy with the result, but I'm thinking of pushing back the ink next time by at least half to get a lighter tint. The wash went on pretty well, but I might also try increasing the viscosity just a bit by upping the ratio of Gloss Sealer. Overall, a fun and easy paint job.

    I finished Reaper's Valloa, Female Elf Thief (SKU 3566), a fun little figure with a lot of attitude. I am very happy with the blond hair on this one. Her face was a bit miscast, so her one eye is a bit weird. There had to be some reason she decided on this career choice...

    Man.... It's been a depressing 3 weeks. So much bleep hitting at once.

    The players weren't supposed to waken the beast of the reef just yet, but luckily the painted mouth and primer gave him a sufficiently impressive presence. Still haven't decided what colour to make his upper side. The underside is grey-green

    I got my injections! Now hopefully I won't get an unexpected bill since they were a week early. And now to kill some time watching my painting DVDs since my head hurts too much to actually paint.

    Based on my 'likes', I'd say that there is a CannuckOtter swimming ever closer to the (current) end of the thread.

    Wasn't sure if I'd posted these here before but can't find any sign of them. Since I'm on a bit of a sharing kick I took some new photos. This warband illustrates one of my main gaming problems. Frostgrave uses about 10 minis per group. I have 24 because I want all the options. And I still haven't converted minis for additions from the newer supplements. Haven't played in a long time so no work on these for quite awhile. I am painting a couple of Sister's of Sigmar from Mordheim to use in my sigilist warband though.

    My Reaper Learn to Paint kit just finally arrived after one set getting lost in the mail and the other taking its time. Last night I decided to end a stressful day by painting. Very pleased with how Anirion came out, would still like to refine my photo taking. The light tent I threw together is helping, but the natural highlights and shadows are still obscuring some detail. I think part of my problem is that I need to reconfigure the backdrop so that I can place the mini deeper into the tent.

    Looks like my back yard. Ok, make them eastern cotton tails, have a bit more lusher grass and give them each a twin and then you'll have my back yard. If I wasn't working this weekend and preparing for a gaming convention it would be rabbit war weekend. My garden is under seige. *offers hugs* and my inbox is always open.

    I had seriously expected you guys to have broken this thread like two days ago.

    Kind of. In theory, all of the desks (and computers) are open to anyone in the shop. In practice I have kind of locked down the one I'm typing this at now. I gues as resident crusty old former Chief guy, no one wants to kick me out of spot. Soon though I will grow too old, and show weakness and one of the younger sailors will challenge me for my position. I will of course have to kill and eat him as an example to the others. A far as decoration, not really. I have my tool bag on the desk, kind off as a place holder. It accumulates various paperwork and junk. Someone cleaned it off for me while I was out sick, so I can't find anything right now. Not I I was using any of the junk, but it's the principle of the mater.

    This is my rendition of Bombshell 10035, Kaitlin the Archer. Nice and clean mini without too many fiddly bits, so she painted up pretty quick.

    Dude, that sucks. If you want/need to talk, there are plenty of folks around who don't mind. It's hot out, people are going slow to try and stay cool. Or this. Xherman is also not around right now due to work.

    The best thing about ReaperCon, though, is the face time with the artists, hanging out after hours. Eating breakfast with them. Rudy's BBQ morning tacos with Julie, Bob, Jason, Sandra, and Bobby was one of the most awesome things my last RCon. Just sitting and chatting. DVDs and YouTube doesn't give you that. Sitting around a fire while Izzy serenades you? Nothing matches that. @Reaperbryan and @ladystorm hugs after permission received? Nothing... absolutely nothing comes close.

    Almost as hot here in Vegas, but I do have AC in the whole house. Haven't painted anything in a while tho. Going thru a small slump.

    Alright, I've done some more work on the dress. I'm still not entirely happy with it, something just doesn't look right to me. But I've added highlights and adjusted the size of my shadows and I think it looks much better than before. I have to move on though as I've already spent 3-4 hours on the dress alone. I've gotta keep trucking! I went from Brilliant Blue to Sapphire Blue and then up to True Blue. Definite improvements, but not where I would like it to be. Next I will work on gloves, her gun, and shoes. I hope to have her finished by Saturday so I can move on to the next one. I have absolutely no idea how to do her gun, so any tips or suggestions would be awesome. As well as any suggestions, critics, and the like for the rest of the project! Thanks for looking!
