  1. Good looking minis with good looking bases! Welcome and please share more!
  2. Not really hobby-related other than it will likely lessen my hobby purchases for the next little while... We acquired a new (second) car yesterday (picking it up on Friday). Mrs. Rahz is thrilled as it is in her name and they had one available with the features she really wanted, most importantly standard transmission and in the colour she wanted. Happy wife, happy modeler!! And for the curious, it's a 2017 Mazda 3 Sport GS. Now, going car shopping with a 5 and 8 year olds in tow is not really the most peaceful way to spend an early afternoon, but at least it's done.
  3. Thanks. I think I'm only going to paint up the abominations for BP since they are so unique. I have enough problems with infantry in 40K armies that walkers/runners would likely make me crazy. After these 3 are done, I'm going to move on to the Troll and the Alpha. Now that I've figured out how to base them, I'll be snapping them off their bases at the start which will make dealing with some more of the mold lines (though I didn't really attack them too much...) and painting easier.
  4. Very much worth bouncing for! I have an army of rats that are dire need of bases!
  5. I'm disappointed you think we'd all get caught! ;-) Nickname: Jamaica Cell Mate: A gentle soul named Henry. He too was arrested for producing massive quantities of weed though he smoked more than he should have. When and how are you getting out: Never! Finally have time to paint my minis, though I guess I'll have to get used to mold lines as sharp items are kind of frowned upon in these places...
  6. Happy Birthday!
  7. Ordered these a couple weeks back in honor of my birthday and they arrived yesterday! Perfect timing! The kids were even able to gift them to me last night! Lost Tribe will be to work on darker skin tones and Sail Away terrifies me from a painting perspective, so she should be loads of fun even if I don't do her justice.
  8. With 2/3 of the month gone, I've managed to finish one of the abominations for Black Plague so at least my goal has been reached. Hoping to wrap up the last 2 in the coming 10 days so I can go back to staring at Cinder...
  9. Decided to skip the pigments, at least on this one. Adding some rubble to the Minotaur as he breaks through walls. Ablomination is pretty much done. I may add some drool once I'm done sealing him, but we'll see. Thanks for looking.
  10. Thank you! Birthdays are good when you have enough unpainted minis to live forever! I have the day off work and the plan is to paint the day away.
  11. If this thread is even half as awesome as the terrain building thread, it will be epic! Great kit bashing on the diggas and the paint is off to a great start!
  12. So.. 3 hours each huh? Sigh, it was going well until this happened... The pictures of the abominations didn't turn out (blurry) so I'll have to retake them and no they're not quite done yet but I tried painting a stone pattern on their bases and it wasn't working and then this happened... Ripped the models off their bases, glue them to a sheet of textured plastic from Plastruct I've had kicking around for over a decade, filled in the sides with putty, sanded and drilled through to replace the studs that the minis were glued to. Had 1 mishap with the left foot of the Ratabomination breaking but it was a clean break so he's now fixed and no one's the wiser. They are still wet, hence the shine, but I'm quite happy with the look though. Primed them with Vallejo Sand, picked some random stones out with Vallejo Leather and others with Vallejo Charred Brown and then went to town on them with Vallejo washes (Rust, Green, Dark Brown and Dark Grey). Thinking of adding some dry pigments between the stones (not sure of color yet) and then call them done. Will see how they dry though. thanks for looking.
