    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    We just unlocked the 25k goal. Interesting new figure. Certainly one of the more action packed ones I've seen. I'm looking forward to what the new diorama will be!

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Just be aware that they HAVE charged shipping for paint in the previous Kickstarters. Here's a pic with the Greebo YUGE Grandma Wolf bust, a Young Miniatures 1/10 one, and then a Scale 75 from the Naughty Gears KS: Greebo Scale_02 by Mckenna35, on Flickr Each square = 1"/25mm

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Pretty sure this is what they charged for the Naughty Gears busts as well? I've slept since that one so I could be wrong....
  6. Yeah, I was thinking that earlier!

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    And this just went live! Backed for two, Probably going for Aruk'ka and Lisbeth. We'll see how I do at resisting adding more later on...
  8. Saw "Blazing Saddles" in the theater followed by a discussion with Mel Brooks. One of those movies that is still funny, but there's pretty much zero chance it would get made in this day and age. Fun facts: Mel's original choice to play the Cisco Kid (Gene Wilder's character) was John Wayne! He read the script, loved it, and said his fans would revolt if he made it! Also, Gene Wilder pitched the concept of "Young Frankenstein" to Mel Brooks while they were making "Blazing Saddles".
  9. I was in on the Chibi project they did earlier this year and it was delivered on-time and the quality was good. This looks like an interesting assortment of figures, including good deals on bunch of Heartbreaker stuff! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/impact-miniatures-presents-the-lost-ks-mini-projec?ref=friends_launched Their synopsis: Not All Minis go to Heaven Impact! believes that lost and forgotten or unmade miniatures shouldn't stay lost to the hard drive abyss they've been relegated to. Whether they were from discontinued lines, failed or undelivered projects we think they deserve to be resurected, brought into the light, and that's why this project is dedicated that end. Today we give you a chance to get minis that are either no longer available, or never made it the light of day. Over the past year Impact! has reached out to different Kickstarter Creators whose lines of miniatures failed to fund, were never got delivered or finished, or simply were discontinued after an initial printing run. We've licensed or outright purchased everything shown in this project and now all that is left raise the capital for molds and materials and bring these amazing miniatures to backers to you, your friends, and your families and for gamers on tables everywhere!

    Storm Raptor, Circle Orboros Gargantuan

    Wow! That is gorgeous. I really love the blue/brown contrast you've got going on. Not something I ever would have thought of doing and it really pops.
  11. Bad Squiddo Games has a line of 28mm Guinea Pigs (or Peegs) and Capybara's in both normal and 'weaponized' forms, along with Bunnies now. She's a pleasure to do business with and the sculpts are quite nice. Given my wife is a Guinea Pig fanatic I have all of the current sculpts.
  12. Awesome - thanks for posting this. Shared to a bunch of my SCA Scribalist friends. :)

    Fantasy Football starbowl II chaos dwarf team

    Bwahahaha! You have to admire their audacity.

    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.

    Sunshine Figures

    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.
  21. Mckenna35

    Cone Killer Dragon Diorama

    Just launched. 75 Euros for the Dragon bust, 99 Euros for the diorama. 50 Euros for the Bunnies! Ouch...
  22. I went all-in on Greebo Games "Fang and Hood" Kickstarter they did at the end of last year, One of the items included is a bust for Grandma Wolf that I couldn't resist working on. It's one BIG chunk o' resin! Here's a picture with it next to a Young Miniature 1/10 scale bust and a Scale 75 1/12 scale bust from their kickstarter: Greebo Scale_02 by Mckenna35, on Flickr I was trying to figure out how I was going to hold this thing while I worked on it. Finally I cut the heads off a couple of nails, drilled holes in the base and glued them in with 5 minute epoxy: Red pin_02 by Mckenna35, on Flickr Then, to hold that, I cut a couple of 3/4" thick x 6" lengths of 2x4, drilled a couple of holes, and clamped together with a pair of carriage bolts, nuts & washers: Red clamp by Mckenna35, on Flickr So far it's worked out really well and been quite comfortable to hold.

    Greebo Games Grandma Wolf bust

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

    Greebo Games Grandma Wolf bust

    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.

    Greebo Games Grandma Wolf bust

    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. Red primer front by Mckenna35, on Flickr Red primer back by Mckenna35, on Flickr Hope to start getting some color on this week.
