  1. Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    I promised myself I wouldn't get excited about upcoming Kickstarters any more (lately, it just seems to lead to disappointment), but that Time Daemon has me at maximum hype!
  2. Micron Pens for eyes

    I followed a guys blog and he swore by Micron pens to do eyes, they looked pretty good too. On the other hand though, I tried it out and couldn't get it to work, the ink always smudged.
  3. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Thursday is game day, It does not go very well, Everybody died.
  4. Confrontation: Classic

    Wow, just wow... Someone over on another forum asked them something about using Rackhams old photos to show off the minis and not their own. Apparently their reply was 'Did Rackham ever tell people their photos were of professionally painting resin minis and not the metal ones they sold.' I'm going to be seriously amazed if this one actually delivers anything let alone decent minis.
  5. Heralds of the Winter's Moon WIP

    Thanks! I always seem to have better luck with painting eyes if I paint them looking to one side. Progress:- Her tatty leg-warmers are done. The cloth parts are Lonestar Leather and the fur parts are Cold Grey > Brown Wash > Wolf Grey. Base time!
  6. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Despite an annoying habit of buying minis I know I won't paint, I've never seriously regretted buying anything. I can always sell it on.
  7. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    I've been trying to find a way to say 'A person to play tabletop games with' without it sounding weird, but it's not happening.
  8. Heralds of the Winter's Moon WIP

    Thanks! Been forgetting to take pictures again:- This was done over lots of little painting sessions, so I can't remember what colours I used Today's session was basecoating her shorts in Olive Green plus a Brown Wash.
  9. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Once again I wish I could remember more of my dreams. Last night's had an intelligent zombie trying to take over a cult, but they weren't impressed by his apparent immortality because they already worshipped a giant octopus-spider-plant lady. I also want a model of a giant octopus-spider-plant lady.
  10. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    I've had a couple good charity shop finds recently. Today I got a copy of The Marvel Encyclopedia (to go with my DC one) for £1 and last month I got the first season of Ash Vs. The Evil Dead also for £1.
  11. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Bah, my netbook is doing it's super-sensitive scrollpad thing again, trying to look through the WIP and Show-off sections is a nightmare. Lesson learnt, I will never cheap out on a computer again...
  12. Anvil Industry - Daughters of the Burning Rose

    And it's live:- Despite my initial enthusiasm, I've put it on remind for now, too many minis are still just concept art for my liking.
  13. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Yes and yes. Although I haven't had a reason to draw a map for many years.
  14. Thanks for all the recommendations! That should give me a good starting place. I used to have a pretty large collection of Pratchett (From Colour Of Magic to Monstrous Regiment, I think) until I gave all my books away, I thought they were pretty good although I felt they got a bit samey after awhile. 36 next month I am open to suggestions of Young Adult and even Childrens fiction, if you think it's a good read.
  15. I knew there was a book recommendation thread in here somewhere! (I've been trying to find it for the last couple of days) I've been bitten by the reading bug lately, but it's been so long since I've read a proper book (the last one I can remember was trying the Harry Potter series, to see what all the fuss was about) that I can't remember what I liked reading. So I ask my fellow forumites, what would you recommend to someone just getting into the Fantasy and Sci-fi genres?
