  1. Eh I thought we were doing an official/non-official thread again. I've no idea what # we're actually on lol
  2. Nah it's obviously a dual wielding necromancer drummer
  3. Very cool!
  4. So got the box and it's repacked to send. Here's what I took: And here's what I put in (minus upper left DSM figure as I found someone else had already put one in hah. Some repacking occurred but I tried to keep everything labeled. I also repacked the glitterbomb into another layer just to be safe :P FYI - if you can PM me address I'm sending to I'll ship it out tomorrow after work.
  5. Took some pics of my finished warbiker conversion (this is based on a deffkopta, basically a little helicopter) - WIP pics are in my wip thread. I tried several new things, mostly water effects in a more cinematic style. Tried to make the water look like it was spraying or kicked up by the bike wheels. Also did some droplet effects. Overall it's ok, not quite what I was hoping for but next time will be even better I'm sure.
  6. lol that's awesome!!
  7. Cough I use my makeup brush That's about the only thing I use it for too lol but definitely try to keep them in containers or one of those glass cases (Ikea has one I'm eyeballing btw, if there's one near you, - Look up the Detolf)
  8. That's amazing. As for flaws, we're our own worst critics! And tbh while they're prolly glaring to you, I can't see em ;) It looks awesome!
  9. Box rec'd!
  10. I managed to put some of the stuff in plastic containers, but I really need to get more lol Especially taller ones, I think, for stuff like my son's Terrorgheist! Anyway, the room's coming along (it used to be a kitchen nook, but the boys' have outgrown the table as well as broken it anyway) - I need to make an Ikea run this weekend, they have a glass case I've been eyeing for only ~69$ US and it would hold a LOT of minis for display.
  11. 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!
  12. ^^ this has also been my experience, sadly I wasn't able to reverse it on mine - DON'T WAIT! If you try the method days/weeks later it doesn't work.
  13. Very cool! they look so vivid and that face on the one with the mace lol
  14. (Guildy looks on in confusion as they appear to have moved the 'quote' button and muscle memory is having a hard time finding it :P) Here's the 'vermin with the Litter =D I am in the process of building a place to put all our finished minis (converting an area to storage and putting up shelves) so most of the minis are just sitting out on the table atm. As an aside if someone had told me you have to dust these things, I would have started on the storage a lot sooner lol Also took a break from: To do some work on these: We played our latest game Saturday (I lost, again) and I really wanted to have my trukks whole and painted, but they were bought off ebay so Saturday they were pretty much in pieces. I'd been working on cleaning them up since I got them, from some really horrid paint and superglue problems, and I finally had the impetus to do a little work on them, mostly assembling and basecoating the majority (Still some bits that need priming as I added them later, hence you can still see the original red paint - that is stuck on like crazy)
  15. Did you find the heavy gel did ok - staying level and solid? that is, while it was drying? I've been wondering about using it for other projects but wondered if it would for instance drip too much out, or just not stay in place well enough
  16. Really nice, the more I hear about/see this game's minis the more I want to try it out ><
  17. So I still need to do the - Hedgehoglilngs X2 - more planning on Reaper Diorama entry - though the mini (hahahaha) has been purchased: the Kraken!! and of course I added: - Warbike/deffkopta conversion - done! - Terrorgheist
  18. Very nice!! Love the daemon skin and that eye is amazing
  19. Some of my recent WIP: The Terrorgheist: Some shelf of shame minis: 4 Stormvermin that are carry my warlord's litter: Also here is some work on the Deffkopta conversion I've been working on (not fully on its base yet)
  20. Before you give up on the runestones (if you were) have you thought about maybe doing a coat of a clear paint then a gloss coat over the 'gems'? unless of course they're supposed to be diamonds, then ignore me :P
  21. I just got a standard set of dremel bits, the ones for metal and masonry - only for metal minis. Bones I only use an exacto (though many have mentioned using scalpels, I've just not gotten around to getting one) also, second micromark tools, they're awesome stuff. I would caution you to avoid the cheaper sets on Amazon, just because the one or two I've gotten that way (usually drill bits) are not as good a quality. You really do get what you pay for in some things.
  22. Be an adventurer they said.... see the world they said... lol that is an awesome mini and an awesome job, love it!
  23. Someone took out his Catnip source obviously! lol Nicely done! I love their minis
  24. Mine's shipped to my exchange partner :D
