  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    That's really cool Mad Jack! I'll have to show that to a friend of mine, her son is obsessed with elephants. I haven't gotten much done, despite being "off" this week (pre-k's out for the week due to American Thanksgiving). On the other hand, my two younger sons have been getting into art a good bit, which is awesome. #2 has assembled and I helped him prime his Dark Eldar 40k force. #3 son is working at slightly more traditional art (you can actually follow him on instagram @temperedgrace (shameless mom plug)). He's currently covering my back deck in spray paint :P and sketching 'old school' because his tablet for Christmas hasn't come in *rollseyes* youngins these days... pencil was perfectly good for us... <mutters about snow and hills>
  2. Goblin Runner

    That's really cool! if it becomes an actual model however I think you might need more points of contact, or it'll not fit well on the base :(

    oh those are awesome - totally stealing this for my eventual swamp campaign (they're close enough! :P)
  6. Currently painting: The Kraken

    So I'm trying to get to my Kraken diorama lol but I keep getting distracted >< I did get some mounds done for the sea floor so I can put the plants on, and I got some more canvas pieces to put behind it for a backdrop. I started adding plants, but it's a bit slow going as I have to wait for the glue to dry before I can do a lot at once. And I"m slowly adding sections to different spots, trying to figure out where I want all the fish friends. I did quite a lot of green on these as a base, it was a bit of a happy accident tbh. I ran out of my brown spray and started using the moss green I had instead. Now it looks a good bit like the mounds have lichen/algae what have you growing on them, as you'd expect underwater. I'd have liked to try a coral reef but tbh I don't think my skills are quite there yet. Maybe next time. Anyway, so I did several homemade washes of burnt umber and burnt sienna (50/50) - just the cheaper student acrylic paint, water and a little flow improver to get it to flow around the rocks and such. Then I dry brushed everything, concentrating on the rocks with Dryad bark (a kind of medium, grey brown). Doesn't show really well I think in these pics but I also did several lighter shades of beige/off white, to highlight a few areas. And here's the whole scene thus far, with stuff in place (probably final spot), mostly. There's a few extra bits in that are just holding up the plants lol. I plan to run some thin nylon thread from the backdrop to the taller plants, to help keep them upright. Otherwise they're so tall they're just falling over. Trying to strike a balance between a vivid underwater world, and overshadowing the humoungous Kraken.
  7. Angry, Cheerful.... Psychotic? A very confusing cleric.

    Your cleric is totally perfect for one of my friend's PCs she's currently playing.... lol

  9. Crypt - graveyard expansion

  10. Yellow Sign Cultists

    you're going to laugh - my only critique would be the books are blank :P seriously though if you have a micron pen they're *awesome* for writing on tiny stuffs like that, you could do some cultist stuff in there =D Otherwise I really think you're being too hard on yourself! They look good
  11. Our Lady of Hysteria Recuperative Sanitorium for Women

    Oh those look very cool! I like the more subdued(?) colour palette you used with them
  12. 80034 Weapons Locker

    Little bit of a center piece for this piece of terrain but it's a great little err mini. I'd like to get a couple more - slap them on some more terrain bits. Anyways: Dry ^^ Slightly different view and slightly wet in this shot: close up of the little attempt I made a broken computer type screen:
  13. And stuff ordered for my secret pal =D very excited to work on the mini too, it's so cuuuuuuute
  14. 77016 Rats!

    Sorry for late reply =) been nuts here of late Tis actually PVA, sand and other grit. Covered by a little bit of resin (specifically Vallejo water effects because I felt lazy), with a drop of sewer water (secret weapon miniatures wash) mixed in. (The grit in the tube was actually my #2 son's suggestion, I'd been just going to use the water effects.)
  15. Bubba Da Gorkanaut - GW Gorkanaut Orks

    So I finally got my Gorkanaut on his base, though not the base I wanted. I tried several times to build a grot sandcastle but it just wasn't happening so rather than keep failing I decided to let it go for now and just finish him off as is. Pix:
