  1. Holding parts while super gluing

    FYI, Hanger 18 has all kinds of hobby-ready clips for sale. The Egg
  2. Priming my pewter

    I use grey auto primer for pretty much everything. Usually Rustoleum or Krylon. The Egg
  3. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    First miniature was an Asgard Miniatures Dwarf Lord (DA3) I bought almost 35 years ago. I have him around here somewhere . . . I've painted too many pieces to keep track of a "best" miniature anymore. Suffice to say, I improve with every mini I paint. Partly for money. Partly to relax. Partly as a creative outlet. The Egg
  4. I just placed my second monthly order in support of Reaper's Dungeon Dwellers promo. Some more holes in my DHL collection have been filled, which now gives me complete run of figs from #2000-3320. The Egg
  5. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    It's official. My better half and myself will be attending again this year. Hopefully, we'll be able to meet a few more of you forumites this time around. The Egg
  6. Static Grass Applicators

    +1 on the effectiveness of plastic containers. I use the Woodland Scenics static grass sold in clear plastic shakers. All you need to do is rattle the stuff around a bit and then shake it out. Works like a charm. The Egg
  7. Reaper Radio

    Spinning up some old Alien Sex Fiend LPs in my workshop while I paint today. The Egg
  8. Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught Three

    The slightly modified Azathoth sculpt still looks too clown-like for my tastes. I don't regret my decision to pass on it. The Egg
  9. 03786 - Andowyn Thrushmoor

    I always thought that this piece was one of the weaker Dreadmere sculpts, but you've really done it justice with your paint work. The figure has much more depth than I'd originally thought, and you've made the details really pop. Excellent work. The Egg
  10. 03785 - Jakob Knochengard

    Brilliant work! That piece just oozes atmosphere. The Egg
  11. Vintage Minifig ME50 Goblins

    Man, I do love seeing vintage miniatures being painted. Those figs look just great. And come to think of it, I think I have a few of those pieces in a box somewhere around here. The Egg
  12. Very nice work so far. The skin looks great. The Egg
  13. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    Oh hells no. The Egg
  14. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Having some time to do some painting in my workshop. The Egg
  15. Mid life crisis

    I'll never have a mid-life crisis. It sounds like an awful lot of work. 1. I don't have a career, I have a job. So no worries. 2. I own two vintage cars at present. They're an introvert's tinkering hobby, not an extrovert's means of seeking attention. 3. That would simply involve far more work than I'm willing to consider. 4. People who know me have claimed that the only time my wardrobe gets refreshed is when the temperature drops and the local bums start freezing to death, which enables me to get some hand-me-downs . . .
