    Here is my first mini I've ever done. 32mm metal Fiama from Enigma. Learned a lot from painting it. Still need to learn to enhance the contrasts and work on washes, etc. Any advice is welcome.

    A while back I figured that no collection was really complete without a Sir Forscale and I thought I'd paint him in the colors of Figmentius. Eventually I'll do one for all the houses. I was pleasantly surprised how well the freehand on the Unicorn turned out. Tonight is also the first time using my new camera, and the photos turned out quite well after I figured out what a Macro was.

    I've started working in earnest on my diorama entry for ReaperCon... Nothing like waiting till the last minute... First I figured out placement, then carved out the wall. And now I'm working on actually painting it up. I have no idea if I'm going to be able to pull off the OSL effect or not.

    Finished up my Marsh Troll that I totally didn't leave sitting on my shelf half painted for two years because I was procrastinating and painting everything else. That random severed head definitely surprised me.

    Ain't that the truth. I've got a friend who was having issues because she was too big, and any time a doctor told her that she would immediately call them a quack and go somewhere else. At one point her husband told me they'd been to 4 or 5 different specialists, who all said the same thing, and she was wanting to go two states away to another one in hopes of getting a different opinion. I don't even try to tell my doctor that she's wrong when she tells me I need to lose weight and eat better. I know I do. I'm just lazy. Hence the need to lose weight and eat better. I call my biannual visits to her office "my 6 month scolding" because it's always the same. Though it was different at the last one, because the new job was already making an impact at just a few weeks in. I think the next one will be even better, because I've actually started to shed a few pounds now along with having lost size.

    I've had someone say to me "You gotta fix my breathing, it's getting horrible. It's like I can never catch my breath, even sitting down doing nothing." When smoking cessation is mentioned I am told : "Smoking isn't causing it, look I've cut down to a pack a day, I used to smoke, whew... who knows how many, so I'm telling you it's not that. What about those chem trails, from the airplanes overhead? I heard on the radio that the government is putting chemicals into the air, I think it's that. Have you thought of looking into that? Cause you gotta help me breathe better."

    Oh man, new Rauthuros?! I think he'll have to be added to my PM, oh yes precious. And there's Charon, huzzah! I was hoping he'd appear at some point. MrBoot, upon my reading him the update, said "Oh, that's why they showed up late. The souls were lost!" Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Dain was easier to paint than I expected, so acted as a counter balance to Harsk. One thing I like about the Reaper Dwarves is the addition of packs and bedrolls.

    Tuesday. I have a little problem. Since we got back from our vacation I can't help feeling rushed. Stressed. And I do not know what causes it. Most issues I had at work or personal life are resolved or being resolved. I'm happy overall, but still feel so rushed that I sometimes can't enjoy all. Not that I'm not enjoying anything, mind you. I just wished I could relax more inside. Maybe I should drink less coffee...exercise more again... Right now I wished I could take another vacation... No can do right now. Maybe Octobre.. Anyway..I joined the D20 Rainbow Dragon Challenge. What a fun idea! I will be painting Ebonwrath. When I bought him he was part of a group of minis and I didn't care that much for him. He is maybe my least favorite Dragon. Something about the position of his wings feels a little off. So for this challenge I chose him, because what if I rolled an obnoxious colour? I wouldn't want to ruin a favorite Dragon! So I rolled Marine Teal, Mint Green and Violet Red. Not too bad. And Now I find myself looking at Ebonwrath and thinking..he is not bad at all!! Why didn't I see that before? Ideas are forming and I think I'm going to have fun painting him. I hope you all have a great day! Stay safe! Beware of Hurricanes/Floods/Traffic/Crime/Disease and other bad stuff!

    Druid Vow has a nice ring to it. How about "Antler Friend"? Something about druid or antlers should get the point across without seeming pretentious. EDIT: Oh that reminds me, I need to order my ribbons! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Around Easter I was working on some WizKids Dwarves for Elven Coworker, and the idea of Dwarves that venerated coffee instead of beer came about. The pose of one of them looked as if someone had committed the crime of substituting his regular for decaf. And since I've tormented many a coworker with the dictates of Our Coffee God Agamenthar, this all came together. I think it was on the first Acquisitions thread that someone mentioned Confefe Mountain and hence an idea was born that the Dwarves would inhabit a mountain made from a Mr. Coffee. I'm waiting until after I move to start that project, but here is the throng thus far. For the time being I'm working on the followers of Maxwell House. I'm thinking that Chaos Dwarves would work for the Tribe of Folgers as it would provide stylistic differences that would set them apart more than just different color schemes, while keeping to the idea of overcaffinated grudge bearing axe wielders.

    This is the second time I've painted her (the first was gifted out to a coworker). After I finished her I realized the Maxwell House color scheme of orange and blue fit the Chicago Bears as well.

    This is the very first fig that I ever bought, 8 or 9 years ago. It was for my first D&D session with some close friends, and I fell in love with the game on the spot. This character has gone through a lot: demonic armor possession, lost both of his eyes, had a hole punched through his chest, died 3 times, came back as a zombie, body taken over by a lich, and currently resurrected in the body of a half-ogre. I have a new fig for the character and his new body, but this one will always have a special place in my heart. I finally got around to painting him over the weekend. His eyes are a little googly, and the attempt at highlighting didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but I'm glad he turned out OK. Tips on highlighting would be most appreciated, as that's what I was trying out on this one. Thanks as always!

    Did you not get rain at the end of last week? It rained on Friday and Saturday here. Just a little, but it was lovely! Washed some of the ash away Yay! I'm helping! If I get some antlers, can I have one even though I'm not going to reapercon? My my toe is feeling better. The doctor gave me some anitbotics and some stuff to do to bring down the swelling. Oddly, she seemed as adverse to chopping it off as my hubby.

    Logrim was the first of the Coffee Dwarves of Agamenthar to see completion. Largely because he didn't have much skin showing. His rainment, like the rest of the Dwarves is in the traditional colors of Mawell House. His pose also speaks of one who is highly caffeinated and ready to slice Monday off at the kneecaps.

    Harsk was a bit more difficult than I expected due to the fact I couldn't quite tell in some areas where the cloth ended and armor began. (I also thought the post holding his leg up was some kind of peg leg, and I almost kept it as such.)

    I was tempted to remove his sword and replace it with a dollhouse coffee mug, but I've only got one of those left and I'm saving it to make molds from. Also it's a very nice sword. The flesh wash puddled a bit more than I was expecting, but I decided to leave it as combined with the grey beard, it adds to the grizzled veteran look.

    I've never smoked and still can't give up eating. It's kind of required. For a long while my weight was holding steady, but every time I get sick or injured more pounds go on. <sigh> I just keep focusing on not getting sick. It's something.

    Holy crap. I just ordered the two most absolutely ridiculous shirts every created. They're so embarrassing they're amazing.

    I'm really excited because this means they are adding more stuff to the pledge manager! Us poor unfortunate souls!

    That's about what I said about Minecraft when it first came out. I believe my exact words were "Eh, it seems kinda fun, I guess. I can't see myself becoming addicted to this, it's just building stuff." Aha. Ahahahaha. Yeah.... Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    If you like logistics, then my job is fascinating. If you don't, then I am possibly the most boring person ever.
