  1. It used to happen quite often. I'd stop by Men At Arms or Monkey Head, & spot an Oh-So-Cool was just as Oh-So-Cool the last time I spotted it & plucked down the bucks to get it. Shopping online I do this less often. Not really needing anything new ever helps a little also. With non-miniatures it never happens. I hate shopping; ergo, I know exactly what I want to get, I get it, & I am gone.
  2. I would say I rated a 10; re, I try to be slow to anger, & quick to forgive. I am quick to forgive, but I can still go off like a skyrocket. I'm still a W.I.P., SO there is a chance for improvement.
  3. That is a BEAUTIFUL creation/critter. Your brushwork & palette are WONDERFUL, but it is the base that I LOVE...I have a thing for bases. VERY WELL DONE!
  4. Thanks, Wolf. The faces didn't quite fit what I was trying for; SO I carefully removed them. They will show up again elsewhere.
  5. I've been working on The Project for some time now; inflicting various W.I.P. & finished photos on various & sundry Forums. Now your time has come. To start off, we'll take the Tour of Compo Heep's Mushroom Brew House & Bat Poop Farm coducted by Heep Himself. From a Distance: In the Caves: AND around the exterior: By the Bat Cave: Your kind commentary & critiques would be appreciated. Be warned though, a positive reaction will only encourage me to continue posting.
  6. WELCOME ABOARD! I hope your stay is a LONG & MERRY affair. That is a BEAUTIFUL introduction AND a WONDERFULLY painted creation. It looks like a statue is coming to life...GREAT effect. VERY WELL DONE!
  7. I am at that stage & have been for quite some time where there is little difference between a weekday & a weekend day...other than the size of the Sunday paper. SO I do the same thing everyday; i.e., enjoy every moment of the day as best I can....come to think of it I did that before as well.
  9. ...I hope so. Thanks for the reply, X!
  10. Making the beasty has been & is fun, but I'm looking forward to the photos of the miniatures as well. Thanks for the reply, OneBoot. I am happy you like it...spooky faces & all.
  11. CONGRATULATIONS on an OUTSTANDING for-the-moment-finished scenic creation! VERY WELL DONE!
  12. This is as things stand at the moment. The first two faces in the gloom: ...the Twisted Mushrooms: ...with friend: ...other faces may appear later.
  13. Thanks, Wolf. I am happy you are enjoying the stuff. The two lower sets of eyes now have faces. I have six lanky, twisted Mushrooms ready for faces. These will fill out the ground in front of the towering Mushrooms.
  14. Thanks for the reply, Thumb. I like that idea. I can picture a chaotic scene a la The Muppet Show (the original one) with the cast & crew running madly about just behind the scenery. Some of the eyes will probably just be glowing eyes in the gloom, but some will have disembodied faces as well. I also have some new Mushrooms for the background: twisty ones with faces.
  15. Thanks, X. I am glad you like it thus far.
  16. The Lads look TERRIFIC. Orks do lend themselves to the wildest of conversions. GREAT WORK!
  17. I now have the basic piece crafted & base is more of a gray in actuality: ...the lead/middle ground Mushroom: can spot some creepiness developing in the background: ...this has nightmare or, at least, bad trip potential.
  18. Thanks, X. It's at the detailing stage now. I'll try to get some photos up later...I've been out, one way or another, most of the day. This is what I am drawing my inspiration from. It is a piece by Tanya Miller:, if somewhat creepy, eh?!
  19. It might be nice to go to a ReaperCon just to meet some of the Forum Folk. I don't think I'm the convention type however.
  20. ..they are just going to have to come & take it all: ...or not. Thanks for the reply, spenserjohn. I'm glad you like the latest & had enough time off from your labors to stop by. that's an idea. Thanks for the reply, George. I am starting to get to the age that I wonder what will happen to it all. I would like to find it all a home before The Man calls my time out. Dying with the most toys is SO uncool.
  21. CONGRATULATIONS! Of course, it is only finished until you find something else that must be added.
  22. That make at least two of us. I LOVE all the imaginative & often silly Orky Thingies. G.W. may have missed the mark on much of their stuff, but the Orks (not Orcs) are UBERCOOL! I haven't done a plastic model since I was a young feller. SO I marvel at your work & the fantastic results.
  23. They are GORGEOUS in their own bizarre fashion. Your creations are BEAUTIFULLY painted & based little wonders. VERY WELL DONE!
  24. What was to have been a sewer or dungeon setting is now on its way to becoming a Mushroom Forest Background. I started making the caps out of florist foam ball & half spheres: Next the caps were attached to the background. Stems were added; AND the Mushrooms got some air dry clay work: ...that will give you a vague idea where this is going. The next part is to do the ground work, get it ready for some paint, AND make it creepier...creepier is my thing.
  25. The Log Cabin is coming along SPLENDIDLY. Each little detail adds to the character of the piece...the chimney & roof are particularly nice. Keep up the OUTSTANDING are in the home stretch now!
