    Lots of detail! Ugh! I paint for play so rather paint fast...

    I finally got a chance to paint up some of my own giants! Nothing to special on these. I think each took around 2-4 hours depending on what details I really wanted to pick out. I'm kinda liking the blue tint I left in the Frost giant's hair. Thanks for looking!

    It's been a while since I posted anything 15mm. To rectify, I present a planetary defense canon made from bases, found objects, and Lego.

    This is the second time I have painted this particular model, and I really like how she came out this time. The original concept was of a huntress (druid like) living on the tundra with her wolf companion. She would be using endure elements as part of her morning ritual, and lived very simply. The base was originally going be a tundra style with some bits of snow, but I adjusted it slightly. I see her more from the southern steppes, from a place called the Crimson Plains. Its name comes from a blood battle that last fifteen straight days, and permanently stained the ground a reddish tint. As always, C&C is welcomed. Enjoy! CAH

    I am glad he is getting immediate medical attention. About 2 years ago, My father in law fell from more than 20 feet. He had 2 brain bleeds, a skull fracture and now has permanent hearing loss, but now is doing well. No lingering deficits other than the hearing loss. Your co-worker likely has a serious (and perhaps critical) injury, but he is getting the help he needs. Nothing else can be done right now. Which makes this part the hardest, because it is a wait and see. I'm wishing him all the best.

    Recently, I've had a couple Menoth forces cross my table. This one was made up primarily of warjacks, with a glorious Feora at the helm. I'll post a more infantry centered one later.

    My whiskey post started out by saying "I'm not surprised because according to my husband, Japan has been buying up all the bourbon." And I looked things up and found out that was not true. Australia drinks more US Whiskey per capita than Japan. Ok right behind Americans. 70% of US whiskey is drank by us. (Though I note they list all Whiskey, and don't make a special carve out for bourbon.) Which led me to the article about Suntory buying Jim Beam in 2014, and at first I thought 'Well it's not surprising Hibiki won because maybe they are learning some things from our storied Kentucky traditions." and I found out that wasn't true because Suntory was winning awards for it's whiskey before even buying Jim Beam. But it does explain why several of the distilleries around here have gotten noticeable upgrades. It also appears that Suntory distilleries are the ones more likely to charge for tours. Though from my perspective on the ground, I would have never known they were not American owned any more. (But, if you ever find yourself wanting a Bourbon tour, I would recommend Buffalo Trace. It's in a historic building, it covers a nice history lesson, teaches some about how it's made, and gives you 3 samples at the end. Oh AND it's Free! I haven't gone on the Marker's Mark tour yet (or any that matter) to compare.. but I know they charge a small fee to do it.) So, my final posting diverged quite a bit from my original intent... but I learned something! --- Also, House tabletop has more game than just what's going on on top of the table, if you know what I mean. *swag*

    Finally finished boxing up the last of my out-going DVD's. In the end I slimmed my collection down from a weighty 3000+ to a much more sensible 500-ish. Now I just need to get what's left into some sort of order.

    End of day six Will backfill progress posts but right now fall down, go boom. So technically I have intentionally applied paint to all surfaces of the mini. I still have a lot more work to do but I doubt I'll have any time tomorrow as i have to be at my real job.

    Here is a mini I did a bit ago. Looks like a lot of the painting I've finished in the last year or so I hadn't had time to post. Anyways, here were more of my expirents with TMM. This guy uses reaper, P3 and Scale 75 metal paints. I can't remember if I used some of the Vallejo alcohol based Metalics for highlights or not.

    Wanted to grumble about my last couple of days then I read Xherman's post. I'm healthy, work is proceeding even if slowly and the family is good. No time for broccoliing here. Hope the guy who fell makes out ok. Had a friend working construction that got blown off a 3 story roof about 10 years ago. He was lucky in that he hit a balcony on the way down. A bunch of broken bones and a lost kidney but he's still going strong now. Perspective people. I always say life is about your perspective. Shake off the small stuff and remember the people dealing with the big stuff.

    How many of these houses are there? Which one sacrifices goats? Which has a secret handshake? Are any exclusive to crab people with goals of world domination?

    Ok, So one last thing about my birthday!!!!! Talk about the best gift ever! (for those of use that like this kind of thing) This Whiskey won whiskey of the year last year, i think, or the year before. Which is a pretty big deal - from what i hear - since it's a Japanese whiskey. I tell you what, this was amazing. I can see why it won too!

    I'm... I'm not sure I can do the topknot without giving her neck strain. Her hair is rather Lady Godiva-esque. But she's got a headband with cat ears and some serious looking leather ankle boots (paddock boots). Mostly she hangs with the anime crowd.

    If it's judged by the ratio paint that is actually on Figures, Tabletop will win. Though Frogwarts may give us a run for our money, depends on if they actually get paint onto those conversions or not. Procrasticus - just hasn't gotten to it yet. And Figamentius has alot of figures... paint on those figures... maybe not so much. Of course you don't. Cause we are on top of our game.

    Back at it again... full mom-role ahead! 18 yo got a job (yay!) 20 yo still needs a job (boo!) and 16 yo is jealous and still out of school. Sigh. Oh and I just found out I won't be coming back to work, cuz they don't need me :( So, pro: more time to paint! con: less $$ to buy minis with. Sigh. Ayup, feels like Monday all over again.

    Yet another work day. Feels like a double Monday. At least I've got... uh... eating out to look forward to. Really delta like I was close to a mental breakdown yesterday. I think I'm netter today. Netter!? *sigh* I'll allow it. But better was the word I was going for. Hope all have a good Tuesday especially those whose calendars were set to repeat on accident. Addition: Delta? Felt. FELT. I'm seriously thinking of turning off autocorrupt.

    The weird thing is how ... off they seem. Like they sort of got the superficialities of the style but are missing the spirit. Ever see one of those rarefied academic literary types who suddenly decides he can write a romance novel because, well, obviously, who then churns out something which looks like the surface film on one inlet of the lake of romance but completely misses all nuances of the soul of the art? (Sorry if I'm being a little over the top. Not yet breakfasted.)

    No time for hobbying tonight... I had intended to do some but I had to paint my nails and the rest of my hobby time was eaten up helping a new friend. I figure that helping someone stop feeling lost and alone and switch from fear and shame to excitement and courage is a pretty good reason to take a break from an art therapy project intended to help remind me that I make a difference in the lives of those I care about... Edit: Here, have some metal played on a shovel:

    The original old-school Partha Paints are damn near impossible to kill completely, short of leaving them uncapped for a few months... (This is why Buglips is always after Partha paints - it's where he gets his his Evil Supervillain powers from.) Even then, it's sometimes possible to regrind* the lump and use it as weathering pigments/gore effects/water froth/etc. as appropriate to the color in question. * (Very carefully, and with the proper safety equipment and ventilation...*) * This Public Safety Message brought to you by the wrath of Pingo... Pfffft... Give me a roll of duct tape, a pack of chewing gum and a broken 1985-vintage Am/FM Walkman, and I can create a device that will launch a single Bones mini with enough velocity to punch a hole through to an alternate dimension. Acquired: (Sealed...And for less than $30 including shipping) Josephus the Rogue "Museum Scale" happens to be around 125mm tall... His face is kinda ugly, but not quite as bad as it looks on the box... Overall, though, he's a pretty cool figure, and the original starting price was only nine bucks and change with another nine for shipping. By the time the auction ended, though, it had gone from a complete steal to merely a really great price, lol.

    There are four houses that made the original Kaiju Cut. House Figmentius, House Tabletop, House Frogwarts and House Procrastius. Of these, the most likely to regularly sacrifice Goats is House Frogwarts (but they also sacrifice Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Space Marines, Unicorns and anything else to Frankenstein their creations together). Secret Handshake? *** looks down at paws and shrugs *** We have crabby people around here? *** looks through the forums *** I think you might have the wrong place. Though you could ask Ub3r about the world domination bit. He seems to run through lots of places screaming and hitting things and would know where the secret red buttons were kept.

    So, in our parking lots there's a sign on every meter/space that says either "Park facing meter" or "No backing into space." Granted, they can be a little small at times, but they're there and they're right in your eye line when you pay at the meter. In the ones with just numbered spaces that you then pay for at a central pay station, there's also a big(talking 2ft by 3ft) sign with a list of the parking lot rules and the fees for each violation, which includes "Backing into space: $7.50" printed in about 60 point bold font. It's kind of hard to miss, because the sign is literally right next to the pay stations. Yet, somehow, it's my fault that people continue to back into spaces and get tickets for it even if they've paid for their parking. So they get angry at me, because "I paid for my space what difference does it make if I broke the other rules," and I get to call them dumb and/or lazy. It's a perk of the job.

    Morning! Ever have a mini that the longer you look at it, the less sense it seems to make? Just can't figure this one out... Probably will paint it anyway, since I'm running out of prepped humans... but may do more skellies first...

    Make sure they show you the part they replaced. As in put it on the desk so you can poke it. I went to a place once where they simply turned off the warning light instead of fixing anything so when the light came back on they could get the repeat business. It wasn't my car (hah) but it's still a dick move.
