    Love it! I think the tail on the wing is perfect as well
  3. So I figured I'd just start a WIP thread, rather than clutter up the forum with unnecessary extras. I hate disorder (although you wouldn't be able to tell that from looking at my workspace! LOL) This week's been mostly working on Gremlins from Malifaux, I have Somer, Slophaulers and Skeeters almost done. Still waiting on flying stand order to come in for Skeeters. Somer's the Bayou Boss, and I have other Bayou Gremlins in my pile of to-be-done but we'll see how long it takes me to get to them. Betrayal at Calth (BAC) is a GW box set of Space Marines that's both a board game and a kind of starter set for Horus Heresy 30k (which takes place before the Warhammer 40k sci fi - just for those who don't follow this). My LGS is doing an escalation league for 30k, and is running a contest for painting the box set. it's about 38 miniatures I think. Really hoping I win, even if I don't play the game because the prize is a free Horus Heresy book of our choice And I love books, even more than I love models so books about models... I'm THERE! Anyway here's my pics (except for the BAC which is still currently in its box lol) ^^ Slophaulers - because they, wait for it, haul slop Just finishing base really on these guys Somer - almost done, working on base now and just need cloth highlighted I think ^^ Skeeters (mosquitos) - trying out colour scheme, pretty much still basecoating although I did highlight their backs, wings and eyes (which still need glaze) Also trying to work on getting more lighting in my room for my light box :( so maybe my pictures will come out better =/ C&C is always welcome :) It helps me get better!

    Currently madly trying to finish Orkz

    I removed all but one of them (dremel is love) - I'm toying with graffiti idea over it, or maybe small conversion, haven't quite decided yet. Only just got da Beast primed finally. Airbrush is kind of a necessity for this sort of thing, and mine's been uncooperative =/ I did a lot of drybrushing on my terrain, or a kind of it, anyway. Been spending last little bit trying to get a good white! It's ok, certainly from further away. Not as good close up. I'm almost ready to really start scratchbuilding the rest of the terrain (idea being a Forgeworld table). That'll take the longest really. But mean while I've got some pretty bits of terrain to use for games generally. In other news, I'm waaaaay behind on all our RPG figures :( I just chucked the chibis back into the simple green again, I really just can't seem to get them looking the way I"d like :( Might be time to set them aside for a while and do some thing completely different. Maybe a bit Reaper monstrous figure. I have a couple of the dragons (I can never recall which ones). I might try to do one of those instead. Also have a friend who's sending me the 77194: Cthulhu which I've been wanting to try for a while.

    Lovely natural look! I hgighly recommed a rubbermaid box for storage and spraying the foliage to death with PVA/Water to really keep the hold
  9. Yeah I was gonna say - awesome book
  10. I don't think I posted my goodies from the box so here they are (if I did, and forgot ignore this :P) Stuff I took out: Stuff I put in: Various bush materials, flock, fine sand (good for making flowers), aquarium plants, home made tufts, some odds and ends, some bases I made (my design so no worry about copyright etc), lichen in a couple odd colours, small trees (can cut lil base off to stick on your base etc). Oh and the resin gates, make great rubble or jersey barriers.

    Trying to save this mini

    He looks good! If you wanted the only thing I could think of to do differently is maybe use a purple wash on his 'stitch' areas, to help it look more raw. But that's just my druthers too :) Well done!

    Yet More Mushrooms, insane numbers of pics

    You have such a cool Alice In Wonderland feel to these, I love how vibrant each one is, both in colour and in personality. They're like a fairy garden come to life! Just so impressive, you should be very proud Malefactus - you ARE the mushroom king!

    Currently madly trying to finish Orkz

    have been very bad at updating last few WIPs And I have been extremely bad at doing any RPG figures at all :( sigh Working on 40k Orkz (converted from Custodes and Ork bikers, with some Kromlech bits), and I took a family shot of my 30k Luna Wolves the other day (not all painted but all basecoated at least so far)

    Reaper figs with hexagon bases

    yeah pics would help - if they have the tab that goes into the base, it's not necessarily easy to remove, if they're simply glued on, you can drop them in simple green for a while to help loosen the bond. Also, once they're dry, you might stick them in the freezer for a short period of time, to help the superglue become brittle. Only because they're metal do I suggest this! It can also make plastic and resin brittle. Let them warm up again before you do anything with them, but it should help. However, post pics first, as there'll be plenty of people here who can give you detailed advice depending what the pictures show :)

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Unwinding - what's that? If we can just make it to the end of the week - or at least through to next Monday, I feel like I'll be ok. Running around with stuff for my kids (really, young adults), trying to get one sorted for College this fall (SOON!), one who's got his mind made up and wants to be an artist but needs to raise his grades to try to get scholarships, and one who just doesn't want to leave and loves to eat ramen and read manga (my aspie). Plus, it's the last week of Preschool. Tomorrow is our last day. I'm in charge of the bouncy house. Joy. Someone shoot me.
