  1. So, I got quite a few responses when I asked about what people listen to, now I want to know what you READ! I mean we can't always be painting minis, otherwise no one would be filling up the forums with questions and pictures....ETC I am assuming that most folks have read Tolkien, I mean can you be into fantasy minis and games without having read them???? But some others that some people might or might not have read and enjoyed or hated... Heroes Die, By Mathew Woodring Stover. I used to work for B&N, and as my staff recommendation I picked this book with the claim "If you don't like this book, I will buy it back from you out of my own pocket!" I sold a lot of books, NEVER bought one back... The jacket blurb says "Day of the Jackal meats Lord of the Rings!" Believe it! Three Hearts and Three Lions, By Poul Anderson Just finished it for the Nth time, great book Thieves World, Edited by Robert Aspirin This is a 12 book shared universe series. Chaosium Games made a multi game supplement based on the first 1 or 2 books. The cover art of the first books is AWESOME! The Eternal Champion Cycle, By Michael Moorcock This includes Erekose, Elric, Corum, Hawkmoon, etc Really something every fantasy buff should read.... MM also writes music with Blue Oyster Cult, and has /had a band called Hawkwind. A very nice British Gentleman! Name of the Wind, By Patrick Rothfuss The best new fantasy author to come along in a very long time! Read it, and the sequel, "A Wise Man's Fears" Jack of Shadows, By Roger Zelazny Most folks have read about Amber, This book is as good as the original Ambers... I will add more as I find time... Gotta paint now! 8) George
  2. I had hoped our Head of House could have been here, But work must be taking more of his time.... So I am taking it upon myself to cut the Camouflage Ribbon and allow you all in To The Gameroom! Tables are set up and being set up for all sorts of games using miniatures, in all genres and scales! RPGs, Skirmish, Company level, Sea, Land, Air, Inner and outer spaces! So come in, pull up a swivel chair, grab some popcorn, cookies, brownies, and some Mountain Dew, or coffee, whatever your painter / gamer fuel happens to be, and enjoy! The walls are covered in maps and shelves full of minis and games! Name a few of the more esoteric games using Minis you hve! Knarthex
  3. Hello again! In and amongst all my other projects, I am working on one of Werner Klocke's Fairies. I didn't like the wings that came with the figure so I substituted different wings from Reaper. At my painting level, she is almost done, clean up and skin being the two main things I have left to do. I am also thinking about tinting the wings with a very thinned Tamiya Clear paint, either Blue or Green. I have a spare wing that I am going to test this on before I put it on the mini to see what I think. The character in the Novels is depicted on all three covers with transparent wings, so I have just painted the 'veins' in right now. Not sure how well the highlights and shadows are showing on her 'clothes / boots'. Base color is Vallejo Black-Grey. Do I need to 'push' the high light more? Shade is already black, cant really go anywhere there! And I haven't yet learned to wet blend... Pics are a little shiny, the dullcote was still wet when I took the pics late last night so I could do this write up. C&C welcome! George
