  1. The Frequently Ignored "Rules" 1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. 2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted. 2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.) 3. Questions are going to be posted between 2AM and 9AM GMT (London time). 3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.) 4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 5. You do not have to answer every question to play... 6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun). 7. Weekend questions will take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays. 1st Question will be posted in a bit (had to wait so it didn't merge posts) ...and this month only... we start on the 3rd.
  2. So I was at the World Model Expo in Chicago last weekend, meeting Corporea and a whole bunch of Reaperites and ogling some of the finest miniatures painting and dioramas the world has to offer (the PA system requested fluent translators at a number of points). I took some pictures. Normally I've been putting up galleries on Photobucket, but they turned evil quite recently, so I'm attempting to put some up here to share. Anyhow, much of the show was historical miniatures, a category pretty new to me, and almost everything was much larger scale than the 28mm I'm used to. As for the vendors, I regret to say that while for the larger figures the men were young, old, noble, peasant, ugly, handsome, heroic, villainous, commonplace, extraordinary, leaders, followers, white, black, Asian, Elvish, Orcish, cowboys, Vikings, soldiers, and fops; there were far fewer women figures and they were overwhelmingly pin-ups. Not that I have anything against pin-ups, per se. I just prefer painting other things. I did pick up one very nice 54mm armored woman to give a try, only to discover Kuro Cleanbrush had done the same with the same model months ago. Good taste, Kuro! ( @Liverpuncher also put up a thread for his World Expo photos here.) Here's a couple of @Wren's pieces, including my own rough approximation of 3D photography: cross your eyes and it's 3-D!

  7. PaizoCon 2017 is happening in Seattle this weekend. Any forumites planning to attend? I'll be there hanging around the Reaper Paint and Take. I know a couple of forumites who will be there but it's always Grrreat to meet more.
  8. Large Reaper based diorama entries only. No more than 6 images per entry please. No chatter or questions, please. Use the Rules and Questions thread.
  9. Ok.. so who is going to descend on my town for Origins? I'm already set up for at least one Speed paint round
  10. If anyone wants to run this years contest, please let me know. Categories have been: 40-99mm wide/tall (Reaper only) 100mm+ wide/tall (Reaper only) Diorama Non Reaper models over 40mm wide/tall we only had 4 diorama entries this year, and a DDS2 that should probably have been in there versus the other category.. Given that we are getting so few.. I am questioning if we want to get rid of it, or offer fewer prizes. there was a request to make the non Reaper category open to Busts as well.. thoughts?
  11. I decided to start painting up minis for my various PCs -An unidentified Grenadier Halfling fighter (chain & shield) as Lvl 7 Rogue, Magnus Perrywhimple (soon to be con only) -Mystic Theurge as Lvl 1 Monk/ Lvl 1 Rogue Stede Blackthumb (Acolyte of Candlekeep), on an acquisition mission to atone for learning and copying ritual magic without permission -Juliette, as Lvl 1 Half Drow Sorceress, Grz'zilda (the Ghastly Gourmet) who was rescued from Hillsfar and while hiding her heritage is now adventuring. I've done a few passes at a few things. But not full base coats yet. Photos later.
  12. This is the Siren Maneater from Antimatter Games (DW2022) in resin. I see her as Ursula from the Little Mermaid after she has stolen Ariel's voice. I just love her pose!
  13. Quick paint job on Callie the rogue in bones. I painted her with the skin tone I have been using for my half-orcs. I figure she will see game time as a npc bandit most of the time.
  14. Okay, with Reapercon being relatively soonish, my brain will not stop thinking about ideas and such for Reapercon which isn't a bad thing. A tad annoying but not bad. At Reapercon I picked up these two. And when I ordered the stuff for Secret Sophie I got him And when I went to Reaper the other day, I picked him up (Yes, I know I'm lucky to live close enough to pop over there ) Now that I have them all I can start! So today I went and worked at my computer a bit with my drawing tablet here's what I got so far! This is just testing the ideas. (Please ignore the messiness, lack of detail, and the extra doodles.) What do y'all think? It'll be quite a bit smaller and much of the extra space in the drawing will be gotten rid of. I think I'll add some spiderwebs and skulls to the Maggotcrown portion, maybe a dog or some blood on the ground in the Duskwarden part. Still thinking and letting it process. Any advice would be appreciated!
