  1. Good grief I adore that photo stage. And I'm reminded that I have one in progress I need to return to... Might just take some ideas from yours!

    Anyone feel like joining me?
  3. I thought it was eyes too. ::): I love the new goblin! Very creepy. Should fit in wonderfully in this world of yours. ::D: Looking forward to seeing the bigger mushrooms all painted up! They already have the usual boatload of character your figures always seem to have, but they always seem to find even more character when painting happens. ::):

    Hopping on for a while now... Probably won't be talking much because my throat is kinda sore, but it's not awful so I can visit a bit.
  5. Those gobbos are an absolute delight! Wherever they end up, they'll add some character... Which is something that's never in short supply in your creations in the first place.

    I can't wait to see how it turns out!

    Wooden Watchtower

    One option for painting the boards might be too use the steel wool and vinegar technique... I learned it from Luke Towan, aka Boulder Creek Railroad. He used it recently on his gold mine build: https://youtu.be/b25H-5BeWvY Skip to 12:11 for that part. He normally does it by dunking the wood in the mixture, I can't remember if it works to just paint it on the boards... Just thought I'd mention it. And yeah, I like it better with the extra cross pieces, it does look more ramshackle. Also more reasonable though! It looked unstable before, now it looks like it would actually stand up to a bit of use.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Then why aren't you on the hangouts with me, @Crowley? This morning's hobbying so far: Cutting mouslings free from their sprues and putting brown liner on them, then gonna dump them in a pair of baggies. I already have a set of mouslings for me and for each of my kids, but now I bought a set each for my girlfriend and her daughter too, so everyone can have mouslings to paint. And at some point soon, I need to buy 4 copies of the mouslings from Bones 3 so everyone can add those too... My daughter's down to 3 unpainted mouslings!

    Yikes! That's a busy schedule! In case anyone was curious, Guinness risotto works well. Half a cup of Guinness for a cup of uncooked rice, plus the usual chicken broth etc... Yum. This morning might turn into hobby time so I don't distract my girlfriend as she studies for her last exam...

    I'm making Guinness risotto for supper, as a side dish for steak. I'm hoping that this is going to be good. If not, I'm going to blame those dirty Irish. ... crap, I'm one of them. FINE. I'll just have to hope it's as good a combo as it seems to be.

    Otters are clever creatures, you know... I'll find a way. You have my sympathies. I had similar issues today. At least in my case these specific brain weasels are likely to be short lived...

    My ex tried to convince me to name our eldest "Pepper". I refused. Then she tried to convince me to name the younger spawn "Pepper". I vetoed that as well. Then when I was trying to pick a new name while transitioning, she tried even harder to convince me to name myself "Pepper". Still no luck for her. (For context: the kids and I have the last name "Salter".) LIES! HERESY!

    canuckotter tackles some Necrons

    Two more quick steps and I'm done these critters. First I put some Tarnished Steel on the shiny metal bits: Then I hit the high spots with a bit of True Silver. It's not a huge, obvious difference, especially in the photos, but all the little things add up. I also went back and grabbed a bit of the black+blackened steel mixture and put a bit of a line just above the little raised nubbies on the legs... It's faint, but again, makes a difference. And now I'm done with this lot. (At least until I figure out what to do with the bases...)
