  1. ...the wheels are turning. Thanks for the MushromExpert link, Jay...that could be useful.
  2. 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.
  3. Coffee: I take it black. The exact type of coffee varies.
  4. Thanks for yet another expansive & enthusiastic reply. You always supply an appreciate morale boost. I judge my own replies as to how they measure up to yours...I have never equaled you. Doing an OLD Codger Mushroom is a WONDERFUL idea...something that I hadn't thought of until you suggested it. This could be fun...suggestions are always welcome...creative ones that is.
  5. are not alone. That isn't how I picture Elves. While I can appreciate that there are lots of Folk who do picture Elves that way, the Point Eared Guy looks like he could be a G.W. High Elf...I hate their scale mail dresses & cone head look. There are a number of miniatures I will be ordering to fill out some nooks & crannies in the Vault, but I am probably going to postpone sending my order until September simply because I don't want to add a piece that I will not paint.
  6. OUTSTANDING! The Octopi Guys look like they just stepped out of H.G.Wells' War of the Worlds. You did a SPLENDID job bringing them to life....the mottled colors on their tentacles is WONDERFUL. VERY WELL DONE!
  7. OUTSTANDING! You have reached new heights with this one. The colors are WONDERFUL & your brushwork is MASTERFUL. VERY WELL DONE! I read an article/interview with Tom Meier. He has a bad back. He sculpts lying down with a binocular microscope resting on his chest. That's how he gets those little details that bedevil folks without his equipment.
  8. The Girl lived up to the all potential her W.I.P. thread promised WONDERFULLY. VERY WELL DONE!
  9. WELCOME ABOARD! Have a FUN filled stay. You are a natural. You have a deft hand with the brush & an eye for color. Disregarding how very few minis you have done, OUTSTANDING WORK!
  10. I'll pass on this. How well & how quickly a mini is painted is a personal choice. I just paint for the joy of it all. That doesn't seem to fit with any of the terms. Wayne, an erstwhile friend, painted miniatures that achieved a surrealistic effect that Salvador Dali would have envied. They were done quickly & were truly horrible, but Wayne loved them. Some day I hope to paint that well.
  11. Thanks, Glitter. I am happy you like the Dead Guys...they do look rather merry though.
  12. .."whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouse, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos gets such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then I account it high time" make some more Mushrooms....Ismail & I approach the problem differently A few days ago, the symptoms began to appear. Now I that the end in is in sight, I'll post what I have been up to. These Fellow already had their blanks made. SO it was just a matter of adding beads & green stuffing : ... ...that wasn't enough to snap the black mood; three larger ones were needed. First the Blanks: ...then the eyes (beads), & arms...somewhat more eye & arms then usual: ...the marvels of Mushroom dentistry: ...Stage I Green Stuffing: ...with Leo "Legs-don't-fail-me-now" Sizechek for a size check: ...AND Stage II Green Stuffing, capping of the sculpts: . ...once I figure how they will be used, they will be painted...stay tuned.
  13.'s a kindred spirit thing I think. Thanks for the reply, Glitter...g;ad you are enjoying it!
  14. FANTASTIC! The Woodsy Lady is BEAUTIFULLY painted in a stunning choice of colors. I love the swords & other metalwork in particular. VERY WELL DONE indeed!
  15. Those really are CHARMING & COOL creations. The Bold-if-somewhat-Young Adventures are FINELY painted in an attractive array of colors. VERY NICELY DONE!
  16. Both of The Girls is LOVELY in her own fashion. Your brushwork & color selection are KNOCK OUTS...I love the faces. VERY WELL DONE!
  17. I think my stuff falls in the horrifyingly silly category. I may have created a new genre. Thanks for the reply, KruleBear. I'm glad you enjoyed going through all the new stuff.
  18. That Grim Mushroom with the scythe will be getting a Graveyard base. In preparation, I made a couple of Spooky Gravestones: ...BOO!

  20. ...I don't remember any.
  21. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Evilhalfling! Enjoy YOUR OWN GLORIOUS the best you can with the hand you have been dealt. PARTY THE NIGHT AWAY ANYWAY...if so inclined!
  22. ...he does have a diabolical look to him...looking evil without looking like Trump is my aim. Thanks for the reply. Glitter.
  23. ...he's just upset about something...probably a concern about what he is growing in. Thanks for the reply, Glitter. I am glad you like the Mob.
  24. Thanks for the kind reply, ub3r! There's more room in the mind for whimsy when it isn't teeming with more important matters...I don't have much else going on these days. AND, considering how busy your life is, you do come up with some wonderful creations.
  25. pleasure; supplying an encouraging word is all part of the forum fellowship thing. Thank you for posting some very interesting & imaginative creations...inspiration is always appreciated.
