    The Oxenfre

    That is an outstanding and very creative set. Glad to see it all together! It is fun and beautifully done!
  2. Greetings all, I have some excellent Kolinsky Sable Brushes for my detailed work, but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for less expensive brushes that are still decent? I purchased a very cheap set from Walmart and the synthetic fibers seem to keep falling out and I ruined a mini. Perhaps this is because they were so cheap. I would like something that is still good, but can be abused a bit. I am super careful with my nice brushes (probably neurotically so) and I know better than to abuse those!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Iceland was once a major air base for the US. When I was a boy my older cousin, who worked at the base, once took me to watch A10's do live ammo practice. It was far away, but I will never forget it. One moment there was an intact old school bus. Then there was a the short "phtttttt" sound. Then there was no more bus, but a heap of shredded metal. It was incredible!

    June Hobby GOALS!!!!!!

    My main goal for June was to paint one mini. It had been so long since I painted and I forgot how important it is to me. I lost that spark for a bit but now I found it again. I am learning that is normal.

    Stunning work as always! That saphire in the staff is really beautiful especially! That Blue is enchanting.

    Getting to Know You, June 2018

    I would really like to learn how to properly two-brush-blend (with decent results) and I am trying to learn how to do NMM because it looks so much better in my opinion. I doubt I will do either this weekend.

    What's on TV?

    I started watching the Frankenstein Chronicles on Netflix. It stars Sean Bean and I am hoping that--FOR ONCE--Sean Bean gets to live!!!!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Damn you Glitterwolf for reminding me!!! I do this every summer it seems: I buy a bunch of games/bundles, then never have time to play them. I have purposely avoided Steam for this reason as of late but as soon as I saw your post I went and checked...sigh...more money about to be wasted.

    An appeal for civilty

    I like how @redambrosia put it; we are all (or most are) bombarded daily by the political noise that is so constant in the world today. I come to these forums to learn about painting, check out the work of others, and occasionally grumble about nonsensical thing, but most importantly to shut out all the craziness of the world. I have no objection to debate so long as it is civil, but honestly I don't think it needs to be injected into everything! Perhaps I am somewhat jaded as at the University where I work it is literally non-stop and can get really intense. Here there is really no need for it though, and if someone feels the need to rant or vent or complain or whatever, there is a proper place, even within these forums. I have never gone into the Bee-Keepers forum and frankly I NEVER will; it is simply not why I am here. I don't think what @Chaoswolf is proposing means "keeping your mouth shut", it just means reserving debate for the appropriate outlets. We are supposed to be a community of people who enjoy painting miniatures, does it need to be more than that? Do we bring our intense personal convictions about proper painting procedures to other forums and start fights over blending techniques? Beyond the boundaries of our painting "lives", we are all different people--our various experiences shape our different beliefs and opinions and I would personally be astonished if anyone met another individual here, or even in the real world, who shared the exact same opinions, feelings, beliefs or stance on EVERYTHING. Let us focus instead on that which unites us and respect that we are all VERY different people. We should revel in our passion for painting and share the joy of our artistic creations.

    Wizkids variety

    More outstanding work! Are you going to post the whole scene together? I think we'd all love to see it in its full glory.

    Ral Partha LionCentaur

    A beautiful job. My only suggestion would be to consider trimming the grass or getting rid of it. It blocks your fantastic artwork! I tried using that stuff once...it failed miserably.
