    Crooked Dice - Cultists

    She comes with the "Female Cultists" set, and you can specifically order her as a singleton. The photography isn't that good, I need to practice with the camera more. I've been doing a lot of practice lately with layering and blending and hoping that it would come across - they look a lot better in person. I'll be color-coding the bases - gold for stars, silver for co-stars, and a faction color for extras. I really like how they turned out, I was going for an almost stained-glass look.

    Crooked Dice - Cultists

    I've been starting work on Crooked Dice's "Children of the Fields" set, having received my rewards from their kickstarter campaign, and tried getting some pictures of the cultists I've done so far.

    Paint Track Apps?

    Hmm, there appear to be a few new releases from P3 as well. @CourageousOctopus - any plans for an iOS version yet?

    We were jumped by three Light Cruisers

    I have a Scout and a Heavy Cruiser drawn and ready to print; I'm distributing through my Shapeways store. Reaper forum rules do not allow me to post a link here, but my handle there is ecs_norway.

    We were jumped by three Light Cruisers

    They're inspired by the Earth fleet from the second season of the old Space Battleship Yamato anime (better known in the US as Star Blazers). I drew them myself in Sketchup and had them printed by Shapeways.

    Yellow Sign Cultists

    My impression is that the fronts of the models look good, but the shadows in the back are too large and the transition from brown to yellow is too jarring. I think an intermediate layer -- perhaps mixing some orange or tan into the brown, not sure -- would help.

    Keeping Watch on Barber's Sun

    Some new additions to my little fleet.

    On Patrol In Sector Seven...

    Well, for Full Thrust it would be a fairly small hull, a pair of wide-angle class-2 batteries and a pair of 360 class-1's, decent thrust, and a spinal class-1 graser. How's that?

    On Patrol In Sector Seven...

    For which system? :)

    On Patrol In Sector Seven...

    3d sculpted by me, printed by Shapeways. Available for purchase here, and a companion model here.

    I've done a good bit of digital sculpture myself -- spaceship miniatures, nothing organic or humanoid -- and I find it quite pleasant to work with, if you can get a tool that works well with your design paradigm. I like the precision it affords -- "draw a 1mm-radius cylinder 7mm long at a 45-degree angle from HERE, tip it with a hemisphere and then stretch the hemisphere's length out by 50% to make it a little conical, then bulge out a segment of the cylinder for one-quarter of its circumference by half a millimeter from the 3rd to the 5th millimeter of its length..." Stuff like that. Makes it easy to be symmetrical, which is useful, and to keep parts like gun turrets and engine mounts that should be identical from one position to the next to be exactly that.

    Paint Track Apps?

    Yeah, I'm getting similar results from it, myself. Disappointing. It gives me -something-, though, even if I have to go in and add them all manually. Which only took me about a half hour for the 'immediate access' kit next to my workbench.

    Paint Track Apps?

    Has anyone here used an iOS app called "PaintPot"? It appears to offer similar functionality and has a wide range of series available.

    Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

    Is there any chance of a repeat of those utterly wonderful mini cases that were done with Bones 1?
