    77469 Brand Oathblood WIP

    Ok I don't do that many WIPs but I thought I'd try on this one. This is so far a base coat and 6 layers of shading. I like to use glazes so the build up is very gradual and I have to remember that everytime I start a mini lol. I will put down about 10 more layers going down all the way to a deep purple. This is at the pure tanned skin shadow phase. It will be slow going due to work but I will keep up with it. Comments and criticism welcome and before it gets mentioned I removed no mold lines this is more of a proof of concept to see if I can finish a wip post and how my skin painting is coming along. Thanks!

    So again normally for this quality it would only take a lil while but with work and life it's taking me longer. Ok so finished the face and hair the face still seems a little expressionless but it's only my second one and only the first of this size(other was an ogre). I tried green eyes(they're thr colors of my characters eyes) but I dunno maybe too bright? Also tried some freehand black around the eyes that started out as me trying to line/ separate them. Please leave me feedback faces and skin are one of my big things im practicing on!

    Was up late last night so went ahead and swapped out the weapons the bottom of the axe is slightly off but all in all I think it came out nice and I like the looks of these better more fitting of a barbarian. The dagger fit perfectly in the hole I drilled in his hand. Also may have to repaint the tops and bottoms of his fingers.

    Ok so added the highlights and then glazed it all to bring it together. The closeups are somewhat un flattering but I think it looks ok, need to work on painting flesh still. Next I will touch up the face then move on to the hair. You can see ive removed the weapons I didn't really like them so i'm going to give him one of the axes from the weapons sprues from bones 3. Whelp let me know what ya'll think!

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    When I put together the basing meetup at reapercon that's pretty much what happened. I knew next to nothing but brought all the materials I had and so did everyone who came also there was alot donated. I watched people do things with greenstuff and other materials it was very hands on people could just grab some things and ask what is this used for, how would this be used. Green eyed monster was even there doing experiments with static grass. I think maybe a class should sorta be like that show what materials are out there and how they're generally used. Everyone has different concepts about what tells the story of a certain mini and how it could be based.

    Priming for mold lines

    Was just thinking about this earlier today. Does anyone ever prime a model just to make mold lines more apparent so they can sand/shave them away then strip or reprime after they are done?

    Priming for mold lines

    I imagine not lol I always have problems seeing them with my eyes like they are until I prime it so im considering just priming first getting rid of them then touching up the primer layer

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    What has reapercon done for me? Ill second the crap hole town sentiment lol, also allowed me to meet great like minded people and make new lasting friendships. It has also given me the confidence I needed to really start painting in earnest and try new things. I cant wait to have my piece judged next year!

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    I work mainly in retail and have for a while. The place I work at now is a little tinier but everyone is pretty much a floater or can do most other jobs so its not a problem. I get the blackout dates for big holidays but working in retail you should deserve to be able to take breaks trust me.

    Gumbo Get Together?

    So in one of the threads I mentioned bbqing but thinking about it I think making a large batch of gumbo would be better. Would anyone be interested in that? I know Wednesday is pizza night and get together but what about thursday by the fire pit I could set up a small table with pots. The staff already said as long as there's no glass. I just need to find out if there is an outlet outside. But I would LOVE to cook for as many as I can!

    I will make a list of what I use and post it on here to see if it would affect them in anyway. I want as many people to be able to enjoy it as possible and would hate to make people sick. Thank you for the information! It will definitely be full disclosure I wouldn't try to sneak anything in and I don't really have secret ingredients. Just an old family recipe While I too LOVE seafood and seafood gumbo my wife hates seafood (no allergies just never liked it) so I make chicken and sausage gumbo. One of these days though.....

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    In all honesty as much as I hate to say it (actually I don't this area sucks) I think it's where I live. I live in southeast texas near a TON of refineries and other things. So when I leave the area for a number of days to a place with better air (dallas isn't the best but better by far than mine) then come back my body has to readjust which says alot.... all the more reason to find better

    If I do this it will be of my own accord. I love to cook for people and would never ask them to give money. If I can't do it myself I won't do it at all. You are awesome and I thank you. I love to cook! Now if anyone decides to help I won't deny them! I only use olive oil for the roux no other allergens

    Nah it'd all be cooked beforehand biggest thing is to figure out how to heat it up which is easy as long as the have some sorta outside outlet. If not I'll do it inside and bring it out. Im thinking of making it a firepit thing. Plus I absolutely love to cook for friends and family!
