  1. Awesome - thanks for posting this. Shared to a bunch of my SCA Scribalist friends. :)

    Hot & Dangerous Lagertha and Rosie

    These are the 28mm versions? I picked theses up in 54mm. Someday I'll get around to painting them. In the meanwhile I'll admire yours! Really nice work on these. That cloak is superb and I like the shading on Rosie's tunic.

    Impact Miniatures Mocking Beast

    Impact Miniatures ran a Kickstarter earlier in the year and this Mocking Beast aka Mimic was one of the offerings. My wife enjoys playing D&D Online with me (she's good at the puzzles and spotting treasure) and finds the mimics amusing, so I painted this for her birthday. Mocking Beast face by Mckenna35, on Flickr Mocking Beast front by Mckenna35, on Flickr Mocking Beast back by Mckenna35, on Flickr Hard to tell it was 3d printed, other than very fine lines on long oblique items like the sides of the tongue. All in all it was a blast to paint. Based it on a Litko 3mm plywood 25mm round and painted the stonework on.

    Just did the responsible thing and dropped out of this. Sigh. Finances just didn't make sense for me to drop money on these. Hopefully I can pick some up later at retail. On the plus side, now I can wait and see some reviews after they've been released. ;)

    Cone Killer Dragon Diorama

    I will warn you that the bunnies from the Fang and Hood KS are pretty freaking small. Something like 3/8" in diameter. I backed for the Bunnies and Hell o' kittens from the Alastoran KS, and I'm currently backing for the Bunnies from this one. Bit irked that as a Bunny backer I see no benefit from the stretch goals, unless they're going to give me a second copy of the unlocked figures. I may have to drop unless finances improve.

    Maiden Bust Exclusive?

    Did they sell out, or is there a chance some will show up online?

    Cone Killer Dragon Diorama

    It's 20 Euro more than they charged for Grandma Wolf. Granted, it's a huge chunk of resin, but still... ouch.

    Cone Killer Dragon Diorama

    Just launched. 75 Euros for the Dragon bust, 99 Euros for the diorama. 50 Euros for the Bunnies! Ouch...

    Didn't know that! Cool. I carved the chains off mine, and I think I'll leave it that way. Good luck with yours.

    After a number of people mentioned that their glasses had broken they evidently they started sending them with the casting sprue attached to the glasses and arm to add strength to the glasses during shipping. The black and white is my attempt at zenithal. A combination of the lighting in the shots and the extra white I sprayed on the apron seems to have washed it out and made it appear as though I just painted it gray. It's a lot more noticeable in person. It's only the second time I've tried it, and the first time was in a class. We'll see how it goes.

    Made a little bit of progress over the weekend. Based him in black and then went over it with white. It's funny that in these pictures with the lighting you can't tell that he's undercoated in black. It all just looks grey.

    Yup, that would do it! Insidious stuff that mold release.

    Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    I just checked my orders from last year and Swag Bags went on sale on Friday. Probably be similar this year, since that gives them a good idea on how many they need for the Con. Hopefully I can score one again this year. I've only made it to the Con once (despite best intentions) but I've gotten a swag bag every year since then so I can at least have SOMETHING from Reaper Con.

    The glasses broke in transit so I pinned them with thin brass wire and glued them back together. Red arm by Mckenna35, on Flickr I've had to re-glue the joint since then and it's going to be a point I'll have to watch for in the future. All the seams needed putty work. The arm joint in particular has a pretty big gap. Red arm seam by Mckenna35, on Flickr Red arm seam lower by Mckenna35, on Flickr I used millliput and filled and textured the seams. Red Putty_02 by Mckenna35, on Flickr Red finger seam by Mckenna35, on Flickr I also filled in a spot on the back. I think I need to rework the texture on this spot. Red Putty_01 by Mckenna35, on Flickr All in all the quality is pretty decent. I could wish the fit was better, but it's workable. There's a lot of annoying cleanup that isn't obvious when you first look it over. If you look at the previous post, and the pictures of the back, you'll see that a lot of the hairs have little blobs on the ends that stick out. Chasing all those down, trimming them and smoothing them out has been a pain. I had to trim one of the tabs off the bonnet ribbon to get it to go in, otherwise there really wasn't a way to get the two ribbons to go where they're supposed to. They don't have any really clear pictures of what the area is supposed to look like either. Anyway, I'll hopefully finish the cleanup tonight, and be able to get some primer and base coats sprayed on this weekend.

    Not sure if this one is going to make it or not. Seems like it's gone backwards in the last day or so.

    The bust has a chain cast onto the body, and supplies a couple of metal cast chain pieces that are supposed to connect from the body to the glasses the figures is holding: Red with chain back by Mckenna35, on Flickr Red with chain front by Mckenna35, on Flickr I have the worst luck with trying to get stuff like this to line up, plus I figured it would be a real pain to paint around, and I'd probably knock one or both pieces off, so i decided to carve the chain off the figure, and do some minor carving to redo the texture. I think it turned out pretty well. Red without chain back by Mckenna35, on Flickr Red without chain front by Mckenna35, on Flickr FWIW, this is a pretty hard resin Not really brittle, but it's definitely some of the harder stuff I've tried to carve.
  19. For those who like to dress up their bases. 16 different flower options - woohoo!

    No, I wanted the whole deal. What's your 'friend' looking for? Drop me a PM.

    FWIW, they've stated they'll be selling more of them on special occasions. By my reckoning they should have at least a couple hundred more to sell, if they made the quantity they said they were going to. They didn't offer it as an option in this last kickstarter, but if it shows up I'll try to let you know.

    I backed for two for right now. I'm actually liking the cave girls the best, maybe because they're not something we've seen a lot of? Hoping we get to unlock the third one!

    Gangfight Skirmish Game System

    I did as well. $20 for a set of rules? I'll take a chance on that.

    Sunshine Figures

    Yes, the bases are a separate item. Pretty normal for most of the busts I've seen. Scale 75 did it that way for both of their Bust KS, and same for most of the retail operations I've looked at.

    Scenic Grass Tufts and Flowers Kickstarter

    Got mine yesterday. Had enough time to open the box, see I had lots of packages of stuff, and that was it. Hopefully I'll have more time on Sunday.
