  1. General Drake: 50147

    General Drake: 50147 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Woah! This was a miniature that I put on a shelf for WAY to long. I'm glad to be done with him. Really enjoyed this one. And no that is not a snake at his feet it is a cable... but I realize now it looks like a snake. Oh well. I hope you guys and gals enjoy it. I tried to make the brim of his cap look reflective. it turned out alright. The back drops are Hanger18, FYI. Action pose! WORK-IN-PROGRESS for General Drake
  2. Primaris Space Marine (Warhammer 40,000) by Games Workshop This was my first warhammer figure I've ever done. I've always enjoyed the theme of the game but never really like the Space Marines because they are to short. When I saw these new, taller, ones I actually got excited to paint one. The height on these guys are amazing. They really have a better feel about them. The issue was that I only wanted to paint one (for now) and that is when a friendly forumnite told me about this book they just released "Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000." I jumped at the chance at the book comes with one miniature on a nice base for only $15. I called my local GW store and they saved it for me. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to just paint a miniature and not spend loads of cash on a single miniature or a three pack. I decided to go with a blood angel look for this guy. But I wanted to make it look a little unique so I did those grey chevrons on the shoulder and knee. This was also the first time I've done battle damage like you see here. It was FAR easier than I thought and the look is wonderful! I was very happy the way it turned out. With this guy I did fill in the base with GreenStuff to give the model a little bit more weight. You can see that in the WIP below. Thanks for the support. WORK-N-PROGRESS for this piece.

    I understand your dilemma. I've looked to with no results. Even reapers Lionman is to large. Would love to find a village of elder Scrolls khajit.

    You know I have heard of an online store that has no labels on there stuff. Its like "black beans" " Corn" and other things like that. I have thought of using it but never pulled the trigger. I have contemplated exactly what your saying. politics in brands BLAH! nonsense.

    You know I use to get in debates about Tech all the time: PS vs Xbox Intel vx AMD Windows vs Apple vs Android And I just stopped one day. It's like it clicked in my head from having debates, listening to them and working as a manager in a GameStop. It all boiled down in my head to, "personal Preference." They are all pretty much the same just personal preference dictates which one you will use. The whole little post here spawn in my head as I listen to a guy at work get asked if he was an Apple fan boy and his response almost made me laugh out loud (which would have been rude): "No not really, too main stream, I usually like to be on the fringe" He has the latest android smart phone... ... ... ... Then he started in about how apple is super complex and you can't customize as much as android. I did not chime in but in my head i thought, "But what if you want a simple phone, what If I dont want to customize my phone?" That is why I like apple. Anywho... that was me venting just a bit. In the end I have no "brand loyalty" for anything it's all price, quality and support all of which is subject to my personal preferences too. You have those things better than someone else I move there. Capitalism. END OF LINE.

  10. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Morning all! I got a lot of little projects done yesterday; Wall mounted a TV in my bed room and replaced my single wall mounted monitor in my office with a dual screen mount. Another cold morning! Hurray! I say it like that cause I live in the south. It may be 90 degree one day...
  11. General Drake: 50147

    Thanks VolksFest! It was a labor of love. I really wanted to try and get that worn comfortable look. Like he has had it through a lot of events. Thanks for noticing.
  12. Primaris Space Marine by GW [Picture heavy, Large]

    Exactly. I first I was no going to do it but once i did I was really pleased with it. Made the miniature look more in motion, in theme.
  13. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    HAHAH! It's around 45 degree's here right now. I'm in awe of it! It's so rare here.
  14. Leather is fun when you get the basics down on it. In my head it can have weather and wear marks like metal but in it's own color scheme. Stippling along the crests and streak marks as well as semi-odd color changes. Additionally a technique I learn from Shoshie's Magnificent Mini Painting on Face book: paint an area in a bright orange then glaze it with a brown to bring out some interesting wear. General Drake: Trench coat with light wear and semi-color change. Rothmartyn: You can see I painted the leather strap a dark to mid brown. I then "dotted" the leather with a leather white sporadically and washed it over to blend it a bit. Hvitrafn: This guy is painted up to be wearing all leather. The issue with him is having so many different kinds of leather some in better condition than others and different colors. Hakon: Similar effect, this is an earlier stage.

    I am glutton for cold weather. But in all my life I have never been IN snow large than an inch. I've always wanted to go to like Colorado and see "real" snow. Wow! Completely opposite of my experience with the one around birmingham, AL. I had never been in it before only told about it but when I wanted to paint one of those new Primaris Space marines I found I had a need to go visit one. I was expecting a similar event as yours but honestly was REALLY surprised. The guy who ran it was super nice and knew everything there is to know about GW stuff. He didn't press sale me or anything. They had a few games running and a guy (customer) painting a miniature. Every single person was nice and polite. Blew up my expectations completely. I was even able to talk to the guy on FB messenger before hand to hold the miniature. After I purchased he offered to show me how to play the game at no cost, "Just come by and we will use the armies we have here and I can show you the ropes." Mind you this is the new system which he said was easier and more fun. But over all I actually kind of do want to go back and learn.

    Here in Alabama it seems like all it ever does is get cold and never snows or anything. I dream of snow. thick snow one day. I need to take a vacation up north one winter.
  17. 28mm Sci-Fi Skirmish Games?

    Battle Systems new game - Core Space - looks REALLY good to me. It's still in KS right now but looks really good.
  18. We were jumped by three Light Cruisers

    Everything about this makes me smile! SUBMARINES IN SPACEEEEE. Well done!

  21. General Drake: 50147

  22. Artist Trading Cards

    AHHH! All of these are wonderful!
  23. General Drake: 50147

    THANKS! That trench coat was a labor of love. I did it a year earlier than when it sat on the shelve and I finally got back to it I when back over it with the same concept in my mind for a multi-toned leather. Thanks for noticing. EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING FOR!!!!! Thanks for noticing. The tiles where provided to me back the amazing @ub3r_n3rd and as soon as I laid them out I knew that was the path I needed to go. Thanks Gargs !!!!! Thanks CAVBOSS. I'll head over there and take a look too!
  24. Primaris Space Marine by GW [Picture heavy, Large]

    Thanks! It's worth it. They have them on the GW website for $8 but after shipping its the same as going to a GW local store and getting it. Why thank you Glitterwolf Thanks a million. I was really pleased how it turned out.
