  1. This looks like an awesome thread as I'm starting to get into armor. I'm literally falling asleep while typing this, so I'm going to have to check it out in detail later...
  2. Jasper! You're doing a tank too! I've been off the forum forever, but I'm working on a 1/72 Tiger for grins and giggles. I'm definitely going to keep an eye on what you're doing here...
  3. Hahaha, it's a Hasegawa MT8 kit. I'm not too sure about the diorama yet. It'll probably be fairly simple as I kind of just picked up this kit as it was really inexpensive and it's been years since I put a model together... Not counting the 2(!) Space Marines I did last year. I'll definitely have to check out the Panzer WIPS! It'll be a while until I post again as I need to order pigments and I'm looking at ordering a big set to spend more to save less... or something like that. LOL!
  4. Hello all! It's been forever since I've posted here or painted anything for that matter. Life has been extremely busy as of late, and I haven't had a lot of time to pursue my artistic interests... well, that and I tend to jump from hobby to hobby. At any rate, figured I'd drop this here as it's miniature, even if not a mini. I need to get back to minis, but I ended up with this 1/72 Tiger tank... So here's where we are. For some reason, I decided to start in 1/72. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it's tiny. Maybe because it's closer to "minis." Maybe I just ate some bad chicken and thought it'd be a great idea! However, I ended up with Hans and Frans.... They are really, really ugly and really, really tiny! I should probably put a mini Dwarf on the turret just to show that they are indeed in the Land of the Lost, and surely to meet their end at the charge of the Gutbuster Brigade or the like.... At any rate, it's a different change of pace from normal minis... although it's been about a year since I've painted any additional minis. My experience with Hans and Frans hasn't done anything to encourage extra exploration, but I think if I do more armor, (and it'll happen, I have a 1/35 Matilda in a box....), at least their figures will be closer to what I'm used to working with. They're just a lot smaller and with not as good casting as I'm used to with Reaper minis and others. In the meantime, it's nice to be getting back to painting. I need to come up with a diorama for these guys. I've got a few touch-ups to do here and there, but I'm pretty much done with the model at this scale. I need to order some pigments to weather this thing as that's where I was headed before I went on mini hiatus. Purchasing too many pigments I mean... It's going to take pigments to make the funky rubber treads this thing came with look anything like real tank treads. LOL! Comments, questions, and WHERE THE HECK HAVE YOU BEENS!?!!? are welcome! -K
  5. This looks great Uber! Can't say I blame him... I love the smell of spent powder! The cotton is a bit white, but you could use some greyish-blue washes on some experimental cotton to get the shading just right. Either way, this is a beautiful job!
  6. Amazing work! Those capes are captivating!
  7. So pretty! All of those flowers! This really is a beautiful piece. It looks like you had much better luck with your resin than I did when I did my exchange with resin. It was a MESS! And yes, the new board has thrown me off as well! I haven't been on here in months, so I'm a little lost!
  8. Sure thing! When is ReaperCon scheduled for 2017?
  9. Oh my goodness guys! I totally missed these posts this year! I'm so sorry! Thank y'all so much for the happy birthday wishes! I missed all of you at Reaper this year. I was planning to go with a few friends, but my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer this past Summer, so all of our resources have been going to travel back and forth between here and MD Anderson. We're doing fine though, and her chemo has been moved local, so we don't have to travel as much. Still it sucks that I couldn't make it as I was looking forward to it. You all are AWESOME! Keep us in your prayer. -K
  10. I think I have yet to crawl in a dungeon... Not that I'm opposed to it.
  11. Haldir, are you running any Pathfinder this year? I'd like to play some more and I'll probably(tm) take fewer classes this year to do so.
  12. Honorable horror? Hmmm......
  13. Hey! Here's a random question! I'll be heading to Galveston for a weekend get-away, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any miniature/game stores there. Any suggestions? -K
  14. None major, or at least none that I haven't visited the store in already. We're 2hrs east of Houston so we head that way a lot. I just wasn't sure if there was a specific store in Galveston or not.
  15. I did see that cafe! We won't be passing through Houston, although I have been to both of those places before. Great spots!
  16. Ok, does anyone else think this looks like "A Very GREMLINS Christmas!" This is awesome! They look great!
  17. The Theme is horror. There are a number of manufacturers that have confirmed that they will have prizes for the best painted miniature from their line. You can find the current ones in this thread: Thank you Heisler! It is much appreciated! I'm not too into horror, but I'm sure I can come up with something.
  18. Putting together a small group to drag to this year's ReaperCon! However I'm behind on the curve as I've basically painted nill this year. Any suggestions on things I need to know? Theme? Contests!? LOL!
  19. This is a fabulous piece! That OSL is so glowy!
  20. "Making clear pictures of the sphere is still difficult." I'm not 100% sure, but I'd think you'd need some sort of polarizing filter to take pics without the glare. I'm sure someone with photography experience could point you in the right direction.
  21. So pretty! Excellent job sir!
  22. Love your freehand! It's much better than anything I've attempted so far! Good show!
  23. She is superbly thuggish, if a bit contrastly dressed for her surroundings! Oh thugs! LOL!
  24. Last August or so I helped TophDNA with his Summer Exchange (I think) and he was painting a cowboy for someone. At any rate, I decided to paint up this Gunslinger as Roland Deschain from the Dark Tower Series. I believe we did these in one evening, although I didn't complete mine. I'd put some crackle whatchamacallit on the base and left it to dry. However, I didn't get around to painting the base until a few days back while I was waiting for something to dry somewhere. I figured I should finish him as he'd been waiting around for quite some time. Really the only thing to note on this one is that I finished it in a record amount of short time as I tend to fuss over things for wayyyy too long. It took months to just finish the base, and oh, I did add a 5 O' Clock shadow while the base was drying. *Spoiler ALERT* Oh, this is Book 2 Roland as he's missing 2 fingers off his right hand... Here you go: Again, with the funky camera, I apologize! I'll figure it out eventually... Thanks for checking it out! -K
  25. Thankfully, I have remembered the face of my father!
