    Half Orc Merchant: 03821

    Thanks! I really had to mull over it for a while until I decided on a color I liked.

    Half Orc Merchant: 03821

    Thank you! I'm glad you like him. :) :) THANKS! I'm really trying to push NMM and get it down! Exactly what I was going for. I usually do some in the not so bright range but I'm trying to break out of those comfort zones. Thanks, honestly the hardest part to choose. I was originally going to go with green. Thank you very much and crisp is a great word choice, thank you again. Thanks Cyradis! Thank you so much Glitter. Appreciated. I used it on a piece I'm still working on and it worked well there so I tried it here. I use a neon orange and deep brown for the transitions. Although I feel it like the lightly patterns off a bit, but it doesnt look horrible. Progress not perfection, right? :) Thank you Iridil. The free hand took a few tries. I was going to go with scales but could not manage to freehand paint one that I liked so I did a diamond instead. He's a fancy fellow so diamond is more apt I think. :)

    Half Orc Merchant: 03821

    Half Orc Merchant Painted by: Arc 724 Sculpted by: Bobby Jackson __________________________________________________ Title: The Merchant of Backwater This piece was one of particular interest for me. I remember the first time I saw it I just had to paint it. It seemed so odd but had so much personality. The very last picture: The last picture is of the bottom the base. I used this wood chip from a woodcrafters store. I'm fairly certain my grandfather - who lived in Tulsa OK until his death - went to this store all the time. He was Sales me by Trade and a craftsmen by... other trade. I thought it fitting to use this chip on the Half Orc Merchant. Thank you all for the support. I have procrastinated photographing this for various reasons but he is finally done. Hope you enjoy. Work-In-Progress

    Last Stand - Spring Exchange 2018 (PICTURE HEAVY)

    Thank you Nerco! I was eyeballing the blank MDF base for like a week before I decided what to do. You can see some of the WIP on it on my IronBristleStudios webpage. HAHAH, yeah Sith happens and they tend to get all mad about it. LOL. Thanks.
  8. As much as I would love to I really can't afford it. :( And I don't have anyone to place with at the moment. My group will only play Battletech. I tried to get them to play CAV with the first KS. :(
  9. Ohhh I want to go in just for that shirt/patch/stick/dog tag combo! I didn't see a price on it but I was not reading alot... too many things to look at.
  10. I like your conversion better. It gave the model more life and depth. Well done.

    New hobby room set-up advice

    HobbyZone, Back2Base-ix, Those are the two major ones I was looking at when I started the process. Before I set up my whole desk space I was looking for Roll top desks. It was very difficult to find one I liked and when I did it was SUPER expensive. SO much so I had to scrap the idea completely.

    New hobby room set-up advice

    I found a table and legs at ikea that is great for such builds. I am still using the table. The work space it provides is more than enough. I wanted enough room on my table to support my racks and have elbow room AND have room to lay stuff out and leave it... Trying to accommodate for the "crafting halo", when your working and your put stuff all around you. I found that the 61inch by 29.5 inch work table was more than enough for that. I would highly recommend it. IKEA: GERTON - Tabletop, beech ADILS - Leg, black Then I went with HobbyZone Crafting racks. This was the most expensive parts. This is slightly older photo as I now have dual monitors up.

    Black and white

    Good examples to look at will be Sci-fi wargaming. It's used on clothing and guns ALL-THE-TIME. Look up Infinity Miniatures Here is an example of what I mean. I found if you look at enough examples you can get a grasp of it enough to try it a few times, fail a few times, then start to understand it. And Infinity Miniature painters tend to use it for everything.

    Practice?

    Hmm, I think my intent when I buy them is not practice but it ends up being practice. I found that if I just go looking for a miniature to paint with no desire to paint it the practice would turn sour. BUT, if I like it and want to do something with it then it's fine and I enjoy it. There have only been one or two miniatures I really didn't enjoy painting... And they were Hero Forge miniatures. LOL. I'm working on a wizard right now and I when I started I said I would do it in a couple of hours. I guess I tricked myself cause I got all the blocking in and a few sections done. I'm a couple+ weeks into it and still working on detailing and enjoying it. Mind you that is not everyday.
