  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    First rule is the one I blundered into too. When stuck on ship with nothing else to read I'll try nearly anything. Seriously considered dropping this one over the side after a few chapters.
  2. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Absolutely, quintessentially, pure, triple-distilled this. Those by-the-numbers pictures belong on chocolate boxes. Bee-keepers prevents me from mentioning the right place for Goodkind's books.
  3. 03660: Amrielle, Female Ranger

    Very brave of you to show and explain the mistakes you made on this one, my foul-ups never get in front of the camera! I really like the rich, warm brown you used on the trousers and jacket.
  4. 77257: Chimera

    Very elegant. What is the base made of?
  5. Nice. (And good brush cleaner!)
  6. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    1. Understanding women... 2. Ducking when my skill levels in (1) are sub-standard.
  7. Wreck Age

    All very nice. Yet one more manufacturer I need to check out...
  8. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    No apology required, forgive me for being boringly exact. The last of the British V-bomber trio was the Vicker Valiant: The first one to reach service, and a fairly conventional design in case the later, more complicated designs didn't work out.
  9. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Sorry to be pedantic, but it's an AVRO Vulcan. (From a firm originally created by a man called A.V. Roe)
  10. Wargames Foundry Pict Chieftan

    Finally got myself sorted out and finished my first figure since getting home. A Pictish Chieftan that I hope will inspire me enough to finish an entire SAGA army:

    With beef. You've gotten me curious now, though. We'll have to try and find some lamb the next time we decide to make it. With lamb, surely. Or it would be called Cowherd pie
  12. 03298: Spirits (remastered)

    Big improvement.
  13. 77399 Sigurd, Viking

    Excellent work, very impressed with the wood effect.
  14. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Yesterday I went to visit an old lady: Still beautiful.
  15. 03531 - Nalani, Dancing Girl

    Very very good but... the eyes. I think you may have taken the photo from an unfortunate angle, but in the top 2 pictures the eyes look a little odd.
