  1. Package received this morning. Lovely and bigger than I expected. Guess I should go look at the figs now....

    "Overrunners" SF kickstarter

    I was in on this, although the budget is limited these days. Bob seems very open to suggestions so I'm hoping to be supporting this awesome range for the foreseeable future :)
  3. Received my pre-shipping notification yesterday. Then a box showed up this morning...but it was Oathsworn. So no new Big Stompy Robots for the weekend, but at least some shiny new critters.
  4. Not that I'm claiming any responsibility, but any update on Canadian Customs???

    2018 Spring Miniature Exchange

    So it looks very likely I will be a bit late. (Short version of why, my father-in-law is now living with us until he can get into the permanent care facility he wants. When I signed up for this exchange this hadn't even been discussed. It has consumed time...much time. No no, more than that....keep going..... ) Hoping to have it out by the end of next week or the week after, assuming I don't suddenly have to move ALL the furniture again, and I don't hurt myself picking up motorcycles (and riders) this weekend. Look at the time, sigh. I have to go make not-spaghetti (how can you like macaroni noodles but not like spaghetti noodles?
  6. While waiting for washes to dry on an exchange fig this morning, I decided I'd try getting a decent paint job onto a fig I pulled out of the latest BoGW that @robinh let me browse through last week. I pulled this fig because I thought it would work well as an evil mage type in the Savage Rifts setting. But I didn't think I'd use it for the current game, as the last encounter is tonight, before we switch over to 5th Ed for a while. But what the heck, I'm going to see what I can do with him anyway. Here's about 40 minutes of base coating. Robes/gloves will be dark red, tassley cloak thing will be purpley greys. Lots of metals. Anyone able to identify him? GW? Warzone maybe? (Identified below.....)

    Jasper's One Day Speedpaint, Mutant Chronicles Warzone: Prophet

    And it is 4 pm here, so looks like I'm done. Came out ok for such a quick job, took maybe 3 hours to get to there. Now to go start supper and then hit it with a quick coat of dull coat.

    Jasper's One Day Speedpaint, Mutant Chronicles Warzone: Prophet

    Thanks very much @Werkrobotwerk ! Taking a short break. Robes are done, leathers in progress, some washes on hair, wash on skin, first purpley layer on cloak, touched up a billion white spots (this guy came primed in white).
  9. What a complete lack of surprise, it is quicker to ship to the EU and Australia than to get through Canada Customs. Luckily I still have 4 or 5 (thousand) figs to paint before I run out....
  10. Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting. Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it. Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted. Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them. So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded chair back from my wife. The hard wooden chair will not do for long sessions.....
  11. Back in December, when I finally had some time and motivation to get back to painting, I decided I'd really quickly do up some IMEF marines. Just table top, didn't even clean up mold lines or anything. Well, do primarily to being easily distracted by......what was I saying? Oh yes, easily distracted by other bright shiny objects, it took me over 4 months to get them all done. Here is a quick group shot. I still don't have any real futuristic urban terrain to use to shoot these guys. Reggie and Torch still need to be sealed, but looking at the forecast it could be June before it stops raining. The rest have already seen combat as some mercs for hire last week in Savage Rifts. WIP ( with many individual shots) is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78476-jasper-gets-back-to-painting-with-some-imef-marines/

    March/April RPChallenge

    So, thought things had settled down and I'd get to try some of the extra challenges (which looked fun). Instead (to keep things short) my father-in-law is now moved in with us until he gets a placement in a permanent care facility. Needless to say, thing have been a bit distracting. But I did manage to get enough done. 1-10: Reaper IMEF Marines I'd say that hopefully things will settle down now, but as my wife goes on a trip next week, and the track opens up...next week, and the Montreal GP is in June, oh, and I should really start looking for a job ,I don't foresee things settling down....

    And they are off to show off: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80758-jaspers-imef-marines-80016-80017-80018-80019-80020-80021-80048-80049-80050-80051/ Isn't table top supposed to not use too many paints?

    Think I'm ready to call these last 2 done. Gotta go start a chili, then I'll track down a background and finally take some show off pics.

    Metals are done (ish, I might touch up a couple of things after looking at the pictures.....). Still putting washes on the bases. Blacks still need to be done, I've been leaving those until after the metals in case the gloves get shiny by mistake. After that I think just Torch's hair is left...

    Everquest gift pack elf, used reaper paints2

    Looks great! All those white paint caps and labels in the background can confuse your camera (it does my phone, which is all I usually use). For WIP pics I find just sticking my tea cup (which is black) or paint cup (which is red) behind the figs, it really helps the camera. A piece of neutral brown or gray cardboard also works nicely.

    Faces and leathers done. Black base coat touched up. A base coat of Black Metal on all the metals but the base. Base coat of Pig Iron on the base and the first of many washes to dirty it up. Not likely to get too much done tomorrow, headed up to the city to see Avengers on the IMAX; that will take most of the day.

    Jasper gets back to painting with some IMEF marines

    Been mostly working (not that I've had much time to paint this week) on my spring exchange. But got some time to work on the last 2 while waiting for a wash to dry. Main khaki and olive are done. Hopefully get a couple more paint sessions in today, and hopefully spend some of that time on these guys. Leathers and faces next I think. Hair too I suppose.

    2018 Spring Miniature Exchange

    Received my awesome exchange from @Pochi yesterday! Now I put a lot of random (hopefully) inspirational stuff into my survey (which is why last year I got a CAV painted like a bunny chasing a carrot shaped car.....)but Pochi took it to a whole new level of embracing my randomness First up, we have a mighty barbarian (77469: Brand Oathblood, Barbarian). The inspiration for this guy was the song and video for Holy Diver, by Dio, a song that was bouncing around in my head while I was filling out the survey. So first off, I need to apologize to Pochi for making her watch the video, it is a fine example of really cheesy 80s metal videos....could no one show Ronnie how to hold or swing a sword?? Was there no budget to get a real blacksmith in? Hammer on cold steel? Quenching in "water"? His blade would not have made the cut.....but I digress.... Back to the fig, isn't he awesome? The Tats are wonderful. That tigerskin! And the base! Lovely! I always ask my partners to push themselves a bit. Pochi tried out spider webs for the first time and they came out great! And she snuck in a little easter egg (easter, get it?) I collect bunny and hare minis, so she hid a tiny little one in the base. I'm already considering make up a barbarian character that has a pet bunny (who is the brains of the operation).... But that's not all! She also sent along this little vignette, inspired by the included comic. Isn't that awesome? And hilarious? And beautifully painted? Look at the writing on that scroll....I can't write that neatly on...well anything... Ok, now I have to get going and get my exchange finished and sent.

    I think these 3 are pretty much done. Just need to check the bases once the washes dry, make sure they look dirty enough.

    Metals done. I think all that is left is the highlighting on the black, some more washes to dirty up the bases, and the three feathers on Erik.

    Back of my hand stopped feeling like it was on fire, so another session. Faces and leathers done. Metals next I think.

    Split the last group into these 3, and then the two heavy weapon guys. I seem to have aggravated the tendinitis in my right wrist moving stuff yesterday, so shorter sessions seem like a good idea. Khakis and olives are done. Next session will be faces and leather.
  24. Jasper_the_2nd

    Decided on some skin tones, did a few touchups on the base coats, and slathered on some Strong Tone. Taking a break while that dries.
