  1. Holding parts while super gluing

    I use of those clamp things with the heavy base. Works pretty well. I've looked up a few more on amazon that are for model boats and what not that have multiple flex-and-stay- arms on them.

    Morning all, Happy Friday! It is a good day indeed. I truly hope and pray everyone has a great weekend. So much happening right now it's wonderful. Signed up for the painting exchange and the box-of-goodwill (thanks @Chaoswolf). 2018 is looking good. Now I just need to get back to my desk to paint. Been playing Subnautica A LOT! [removed animated image]
  3. Signing back in to doing the exchange after a long while.

    They have a creative mode too. No multiplayer but I bet they will on full release.

    Woah! Yeah I imagine it would be. Super colorful game and at night the game lights up!

    Good morning all! Long time no commenting. Work has been a nice stream of busy. It's actually quite pleasant to have a steady flow of things to do that are not overly stressful. I've not had much time to paint recently with hitting the gym longer and a new video game that i HIGHLY recommend: SubNautica. If you like survival games akin to Ark and Minecraft then this is it for you. It's in preview and has a 1hour free trail. I highly recommend trying it out.

    Morning all! Been a minute since I was on here. We just got GPS tracking on our work trucks and I'm the one monitoring it. It's really nice to tell a customer that the service manager in just down the road from them.

    More work done on the fancy orc Merchant! Trim on the jacket Green poof on the jacket The jacket Pants Trim on the boots and gloves Parcel on the back pack rope on the back pack Belt Hat. handle rings on the treasure chest. I'll try and make this brief as it was a lot of little things and I forgot to update half way. The pants i did a striping technique to add texture. The Jacket I attempted some free hand that after and hour and a half looked like crap so I painted over it and began a brighter tone on the jacket. The poofs I highlighted up but am not done yet. You see the trim work on the jacket and how it looks bright then dark and almost silk. I want to do that with the poofs. I just need to highlight up a little more and go deeper green on the recesses. The hat got the same as the trim and jacket. The belt was fun as this miniature as detail work sculpted into the belt so I just had to pick out the low spots then move up from there. Still going to add some detail to it. Obviously the buckle is not done. The parcel on the pack was fun and I added streak marks which gave it this worn look. The NMM on the "silver" handle rings on the chest didn't turn out well but that is my experience with NMM on that shaped object. I had to get it as best I could then move on. I may reapproach it. Lastly is the rope; i wanted a color for the rope that was different from the rest of the miniature so I when with great. I need to do some layering work on it but the base coat is great. I like the light contrast of it. I'll probably shadow it with darker greys but highlight with terrain khaki brown and leather white. What color do you think that bag in the front should be? I can't seem to decide so I've just left it for now.

    03821: Half Orc Merchant I saw this guy and all I could think of was a random merchant walking between towns trying to stop you before you go to town and buy his wares. He might even have a quest or two at some point. The first photo is the base work I did on him. These is a VERY heavy miniature. I decided to keep him attached and just sculpt a base around his to blend. There will be grass and what not at the end which will blend things even better. I primed this chap then started working on his back pack and decided I should stop and do the face since it is usually the hardest point for me. It came out well and I may tweak it a be by the end. I wanted him to look like a "Fancy man" trying to get your attention and putting his best face forward to sell his wares. HA! The back pack coloration is inspired by the Legend of Zelda Breath of the wild treasure chest I saw online; dark brown with gold trim. Also in this picture you can see the rest of the base. I wanted to portray him possibly breaking over a direction sign (to the town) so you will ask him then he would offer his wares.

    I really like what you did here. The spirit you were trying to capture, you did it. Thank you for sharing.

    Well I think mine is just cause my prescription is out... I got my current set about 8 years ago... It's slightly off and it wears me out throughout the day then when I get home I'm tired from it... i guess.

    Morning all! Wasn't able to paint last night Had a head ache until I went to bed. I really think I need new glasses.
  13. Kasatha Miniature

    Look up Icuras Miniatures Shop/Icuras Miniature Project/The Nexus They are unpainted but they are 4 armed. Maybe this might help you.

    Good Morning all, Got to bed on time and sleep well! Coffee is flowing and work is crazy... It's a good day thus far.

    You would think it would be a common thing to do such things... My new favorite thing is to start the message with my phone number so in case they need to replay it to get my number they don't have to listen to the whole thing.
  16. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I tell you what irritates the mess out of me; customers call in leaving a message saying, "Hey this is Mrs. Roberts could you give me a call" then give me a number that is not registered.... I can't look them up or anything, cause guess what? I have about 50 Mrs. Roberts in my system. Rant over.

    Got some more done recently. Got most of the chest taken care of as well as did the small box on the bottom. I attempted more NMM on a metal band I painted onto the blue box. I'm not very pleased with how it turned out but I needed to move on so I may or may not re-approach it. I did some shading on the back pack straps using the Red hair Triad. It turned out well although I want to add more texture to it. Base coated the sign post and the staff post as well as the primary belt. The last thing I did was use that color from the belt and base coated the last two little bags. Using that same color I also added some light shadowing to the parcel on his back. I figured I would attach a picture of my wet pallet as well so you can get a feel for the color scheme. This miniature is teaching me how much I need to practice NMM.

    Thanks! That's exactly what I'm going for.
  19. 03821: Half Orc Merchant

    Some of the limited I had to paint this week I managed to get to the treasure chest. I'm not too happy with the chest but I'm working on it. Additionally I added in guideline dots on the tunic (jacket). I learned this from Bailey here on the forums. Any recommendation would be welcome. Thanks all.
