  1. I currently play Kingdom Death, both versions of Zombicide, the Others (less so than the others) and 40K though I also have a LOT of Skaven. Frostgrave has captured my interest but we have too many things on the go right now...
  2. Cant wait to see what you do with it! I still need to fish mine out of his box one day...
  3. Good stuff! Looking forward to round two!
  4. I want to call him done. Going to have a last look at him in proper daylight tomorrow but I think he's headed for the show off thread. Next up, werewolf. Thanks for looking.
  5. You mean you don't have 4 extra bottles on hand for something like this?! Oooh, potential drama right out of the gate! steals some of OneBoot's popcorn.
  6. My main problem with the poxwalkers is that they are all smiling strangely... I get that they are one cough/sneeze away from a happy plague-ridden death, but... put me off them. And of course you need another GW starter set! Who doesn't?! That voice doesn't know what it's talking about... listen to the minis...
  7. I have a nice big wood one from Ikea in my airbrush booth but may need to move it to my painting table for Ma'al. Very much looking forward to all the WIP threads for that one!
  8. That point when the colors start coming together. Depending on the miniature, I sometimes block in the base colors and then work on the shading/highlighting OR I focus on certain parts of the mini but there's a point in both cases where things start to gel and you get that "this is coming together as I had hoped" moment. It's that moment that pushes me to paint more and to try to finish off the mini.
  9. I love these challenges! You're all nuts and it's wonderful! I would need time away from my children to be able to attempt one... one day... Best of luck to you! We'll be here cheering you along.
  10. Finally up and moving today. Double ear infection along with the sinuses in between! Coughed all night... So, home sick for the day. Going to see if I can stop coughing long enough to get some paint slung onto some minis... Though I do plan to step outside to bask in the light of the yellow ball of hate after hiding indoors for the last 3 days because of this darn cold...
  11. Happy Birthday!
  12. Hobby related: only occasionally and usually with paints that I haven't used in a while and decided I needed for a specific project or because adding that 1 or 2 paints will get me free shipping. Hasn't happened on bigger stuff, that I'm aware of. /blush Non-hobby related: Rarely though if I'm at the hardware store picking up bits for a reno project and I'm not sure if I have X, I will likely pick it up to save me a trip back to the store swearing in the middle of said reno project. I much prefer the second trip after the project to return the excess products.
  13. Sooo.... No desk cleaning has happened. Troll abomination is almost done, other 2 are untouched. Cinder's base lies forgotten Clockwork Dragon has been washed and assembled as has it's sibling the Shadow Dragon (Each of my kids picked a dragon they want me to paint up to decorate their bedrooms) Fair bit of work done on BrokenToad's Sail Away bust Not exactly on track but a decent amount of time hobbying was had and there's still a week to go!
  14. I rarely poke anything into the tip. I remove the tip and wash it out completely (yes, loosing a bit of paint in the process...) to ensure I don't poke the dried paint back into the mix where it may later become a bigger piece of dried paint.
  15. The only problem with dropper bottles (and I FAR prefer them to screw tops) is when there is a tiny bit of blockage and you squeeze a little harder to get the paint out and then BAM! you have covered your palette with paint instead of getting the 1 or 2 drops you were after...
