    The metal looks great, I have always liked your TMM. I had not heard that they had switched to every other year, hopefully they can figure something out.

    Happy Birthday!
  3. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I had the opposite happen. A package being shipped to me in California from a location 45 miles away ended up in Minnesota.

    Awesome job!

    The red and gold look fantastic and great job on the freehand! Please say you are bringing him to the SCAHMS show.
  6. Same here. Which is odd as I did get a notice for my second order which was placed on the 1st.

    Thank you!
  8. Shieldmaiden Bust from Nutsplanet

    As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it. Any feedback is most welcome! WIP thread here: Shieldmaiden Bust
  9. She arrived. Nicely packaged but a finger broke and it looks like a piece of the cloak broke off as well. I should be able to reattach the finger but the cloak must have broke before getting packed up as the piece is not in the box. Will have to figure out a fix later. Overall though, a fantastic and beautiful bust.
  10. Finally remembered to snap a pic of my exchange mini. Not much progress as I had to focus on another that has a tight deadline. Progress pic in spoiler, just primed and one color base coated.
  11. CA Fires

    I lived in San Diego County during the ‘03 fire storm when the whole city was surrounded. We had to evacuate and several houses on our road burned down. This year with the NorCal fires and now the ones here, it’s just crazy. Hopefully the new year brings more rain.
  12. CA Fires

    I am safe where I am at. Closest ones to me were the Riverside and San Bernardino ones which are at 100% containment if not out completely. I am hoping the wind dies down, it has been blowing like crazy. Until it dies down, it is difficult to fight the fires.
  13. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    That shop was my favorite when I visited last year. There is also a game store in the building building across the street that looked like it had some good stuff but we had to leave before it opened.
  14. CMON got me ws well. Was going to do a second order but made my willpower roll. Really happy I nabbed Kyle from Galapagos as I have been wanting him for a while.
  15. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Let me guess, the one in Spokane? Even though there are a couple near me, the Spokane one is the only one I have been to. My parents live just across the state line in Hayden, ID and like to go to the Hobby Lobby that is next to it. Oh, the auction rule. I remember that from playing the Monopoly computer game, not sure if we ever used it in person though.
  16. Barbarian Force Four

    Fantastic job!
  17. Yephima for the Thanksgiving challenge

    Great job! The skin looks really good.
  18. Happy Birthday Aryanun !!!

    Happy Birthday!
  19. Or you can state at the start that it is for Secret Sophie and put the pictures under a spoiler tag. That way those that are participating know to avoid it if they want to be surprised and those that are not can click the spoiler to see the image and give feedback. There should be a few examples of this in the WIP area where others have posted theirs in the past.
  20. Happy Birthday MissMelons !!!

    Happy Birthday!!!
  21. Mile Marker Five: 14058, Lorielle Silverrain

    Thank you!
  22. This was a very personal project for me. Five years ago, the summer of 2012, I found my gaming group and played my first ever game of D&D. That was also the night I discovered this crazy, black hole hobby called miniature painting. I had noticed the minis everyone was using and asked about them. They told me the basics and I ended up purchasing a mini and some paints that night. I was also handed this mini, Reaper’s 14058: Lorielle Silverrain and was told I could have her if I thought I could attach her arm. While she ended up being the second mini I ever painted, I consider her to be the one that started it all. I remained at just the base coat stage until January 2014, when I joined the forums. After that my interest and investment in the hobby exploded. I really had no idea what I was getting into that night five years ago but I believe it was one of the best things to ever happen to me. And so, with that out if the way, I present to you Mile Marker Five. The original is included in the first photo for comparison.
  23. Mile Marker Five: 14058, Lorielle Silverrain

    Thanks! We need to switch in January, I need to paint more Infinity and you need to do display. Thank you! In regards to base work, I usually have a general idea of what I want and I let that idea evolve as I build it. I do not put too much thought into it and get settled on one thing because when I do, I am usually disappointed it did not turn out like I wanted. If you want to get more comfortable with it, I would say get a bunch of blank bases and basing supplies and just start putting things together without having to worry about matching it to a certain mini.
  24. Happy Birthday, Buglips!

    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
  25. This is one of my planned dioramas for ReaperCon. It is going to be a post apocalyptic 'bot shop featuring Bombshell Miniatures's Maelee and an assortment of robots. Right now the structure is built and partially painted with some weathering started. Still need to put a sign together but other than that, all construction is completed. What color do you suggest for the bricks/stone? The walls are a faint blue which is hard to see in the photos and will have rust effects like the roof. These are most of the 'bots as well as the workbench. The Maelee I am using is in my travel paint kit so I did not get her out for the photo. Do you like the two toned 'bot or should I go with a solid color? Any other suggestions would be welcome!
