  1. Awesome!
  2. Ah, haven't really gotten to the tail yet. I've got more hobby knife blades on the way so hopefully a nice new blade will help some.
  3. Yeah, I plan out my color schemes beforehand which helps a lot. So then I can just flip through my notebook and find where I've used the same color and then just paint multiple pieces at once.
  4. I've got Pale Green which might work. I just need to undo the playing around with it that I did yesterday that made it weird. I really don't want to have to throw them in some Simple Green.
  5. I'm finding this as well. So far they've been pretty easy to get at but I'm sure that there are some lurking somewhere.
  6. As long as 30 are painted by the end of the month you're good. I probably wasn't real clear about that. It doesn't have to be one a day just one for each day.
  7. I do like it a lot. I'll especially use it on things that I'd rather be blue or green instead of fighting with myself to get the brown/grey liners covered. So lots of fish monsters have seen it's use as well as a few other things.
  8. Been sleeping on this, I've decided I hate the green. Need to figure something different out.
  9. I've found for the most part with just a thin t-shirt/tank top underneath (unless it's an under bust) most can be worn over clothes.
  10. I put some blue liner on the last of my Minivember minis and can call prep done! I also made a WIP thread so I don't totally forget about it when it rolls around. My sense of time is completely off lately.
  11. It's almost that time of year again! And by that I mean it's almost November. I started this last year in place of doing NaNoWriMo. Instead of writing a novel I paint a mini a day. I have tweaked the rules slightly from last year since I wasn't able to complete it the way I wanted to because life. So here are the revised rules and my calendar. I'm going to try to do this one mini each day but if that fails as long as I have 30 minis at the end of the month I'll consider it a success. Rules: Must paint at least 30 minis (1 for each day) 1 sculpt = 1 mini Prep beforehand is encouraged. No brush restrictions Calendar: I only do this for my sanity and to keep me on track and motivated. This year all but 2 of the minis are from Bones 3. There probably won't be much updating to this until November actually starts or is very near to it. I think that's it for now. Thanks for looking!
  12. I'm actually done with the Minivember prep now! Still working on Dagon. Birthday was very enjoyable. I've only just ordered the big stuff for the diorama (like the base that I kind of need to really get going), it should all be here next week.
  13. Still trying to locate a can of dullcote locally. It's not going well, may have to make another Amazon order...
  14. I did get a little bit of painting done last night. I'm trying to get up the energy to do more today but it's chilly and the bed is warm. I've been going back and forth from the desk to the bed. I'll get up and move a few things around and then back into the bed. I've got all day to myself. Now to see if anything actually gets done.
  15. Grocery shopping complete. All other adulting will have to wait until tomorrow. I'm very low on spoons and would like to hobby some today. That is if cleaning my desk doesn't take up the rest of them.
