  1. I'm in desperate need of organizing my work area. While cleaning, I found a small stack of foam core sheets. So, I formed a plan to get rid of some foam core sheets, open up some storage, and organize my painting area, all at the same time. Here's the project, presented wordlessly: Darn. I've run out of storage space already. I think I'll have to make a second one at least, what with more paint coming in from mail order and Reaper Kickstarters. Dimensions are 15" wide by 13" deep by 12-1/2" tall with a capacity of 126 bottles. Total material used for this project: just under 3 standard-sized sheets of foam board. It would have been 2-1/2 sheets, but on Tuesday the backboard went missing, and I accused the boys of taking it and playing with it and not returning it; on Wednesday I discovered the piece back where it was before after I had cut a replacement, and I accused the boys of returning it secretly to cover their earlier misdemeanor; and on Thursday my wife asked if I had noticed that I had got the foam core piece back, since she had borrowed it as a backdrop for taking eBay sale photos. I formally apologized to the boys for even suspecting them.
  2. This will be where I post my Frost Grave Terrain. First up will probably be an improvised fountain, made from a leftover plastic container and the water weird (77310) mini Also Dave Graffam's Tall Ruined Wall. I'll be doing that tomorrow with bristol board and going to the print shop to print some stuff in color. There's no Glue Stick so only priming and dry-fitting of the fountain
  3. so.... I have an idea. Yes, my precious I do! Ahem. This is probably a crazy idea, but I wanted to take one of my favorite visual artist's work and apply it to my miniature hobby. First, a bit of info for those not familiar with art nouveau: Alphonse Mucha was a Czech painter with a really cool linear style. Feel free to Wikipedia him. He's fairly distinct. I happen to own a Mucha print book, which made it much easier to plot out my evil plan. The idea is to take one of his prints, create a demi-rond (like a flat only thicker and closer to a bas relief, and have it becoming more 3-D as it approaches the edges of the picture frame that surrounds it. I'll create fully 3-D elements within the frame as well. Then paint the whole thing. Hard to describe, but hopefully the WIP will get there! First, I spent a great deal of time trying to figure out which print I wanted to tackle. My main goal was something not too complicated, since I don't do a great deal of this type of sculpting. I suck at sculpting faces, and I've learned symmetry is hard. Have you ever noticed how sometimes the eyes in a given mini are different? Yeah. Mine would be even more different! So, in order to avoid the not-quite-symmetrical trap, I knew I needed either a profile or a 3/4 face, to make my stress level reasonable. After much hemming and hawing, I chose this one: See- look at all those nice lines! Such a friendly pattern to follow. Many paintings are softer, with less obvious transitions. I'd thought about using a Brom, but this should be easier, and since it's an ambitious project, I need all the help I can get! Then, I used my trusty book: I picked out a picture frame from my local hobby store, and the little cardboard backing is to the right in the above pic. It's the perfect size! Plus, it was on sale 70% off... I liked this frame because it had curly lines and looked organic, and my style is organic and I plan to do a bunch of vines and leaves per usual! So I printed out the Summer and darkened the copy to make the lines stand out more: I cut out an additional copy: ...And applied it directly to a rolled out slab of fimo. First, if anyone tries this again, a few fimo caveats. One, the stuff is firm! I bruised my poor hands kneading it. I may have to invest in a pasta machine! Two, I tried rolling it out originally on a styrene sheet and it stuck. So I had to peel it off, re-knead it (curses) and re-roll it out (used a spare rolling pin) and this time place it on a piece of parchment paper. It should be easy to sculpt on the styrene sheet to keep it flat and the parchment should peel off. Or I can bake it on the parchment and peel it off after. At any rate, if has a firmer consistency than my sculpey, so i'm hoping I can get nice hard edges, though my style is softer in general. The reason I put the cut-out on top is that I can use it to transfer the lines to the fimo. I used a pin tool (ceramics tool, similar to an industrial strength paint pokey tool) and presed it along each line, letting the clay pick up the impression through the paper: So you can see the lines- much easier to follow as I sculpt! Then I started sculpting! Hard to see with white on white, but the nice thing about these clays are that they are to some degree compressible. Which means unlike wood or plaster where I have to carve away, I can compress the edges to get the relief. I do still carve some away though. So, still in progress, but it's been fun experimenting with this. I'm hoping to make some more progress this weekend!
  4. Because I apparently suffer from extreme ADHD when it comes to miniature painting... squirrel!! Ahem, the following are in various stages of WIP. Everything on the blob and rat has been applied by airbrush and mostly inks and washes to this point. The Abominataur has had some brushwork done since and is nearing completion. Tried something I picked up from a French Youtuber Hutif who mixes some satin varnish in with her inks when she sprays them. Will be doing a comparison on some different models at some point to see if it's actually doing anything but it seems to be helping the ink settle into the recesses better. Applying inks/washes through the airbrush has also been neat as you spray at such a low pressure that you can get really precise. If nothing else, it was great practice. These are not meant to be works of art, just messing around and hoping to get them on the table with 3 or so hours of work each. So far, the minotaur is the farthest along has had about 2 hours total. Thanks for looking.
  5. Well this month I decided to join in the hangouts mini. Got started on mine tonight on the hangouts. Went with the green skin as all my other's I have are painted up as greenskins. I mostly base coated tonight during the hangout. Here is what I got accomplished.
  6. So I figured I'd just start a WIP thread, rather than clutter up the forum with unnecessary extras. I hate disorder (although you wouldn't be able to tell that from looking at my workspace! LOL) This week's been mostly working on Gremlins from Malifaux, I have Somer, Slophaulers and Skeeters almost done. Still waiting on flying stand order to come in for Skeeters. Somer's the Bayou Boss, and I have other Bayou Gremlins in my pile of to-be-done but we'll see how long it takes me to get to them. Betrayal at Calth (BAC) is a GW box set of Space Marines that's both a board game and a kind of starter set for Horus Heresy 30k (which takes place before the Warhammer 40k sci fi - just for those who don't follow this). My LGS is doing an escalation league for 30k, and is running a contest for painting the box set. it's about 38 miniatures I think. Really hoping I win, even if I don't play the game because the prize is a free Horus Heresy book of our choice And I love books, even more than I love models so books about models... I'm THERE! Anyway here's my pics (except for the BAC which is still currently in its box lol) ^^ Slophaulers - because they, wait for it, haul slop Just finishing base really on these guys Somer - almost done, working on base now and just need cloth highlighted I think ^^ Skeeters (mosquitos) - trying out colour scheme, pretty much still basecoating although I did highlight their backs, wings and eyes (which still need glaze) Also trying to work on getting more lighting in my room for my light box :( so maybe my pictures will come out better =/ C&C is always welcome :) It helps me get better!
  7. I haven't done a WIP here in a while, except for the occasional exchange piece, so I decided to give one a go and see if I keep up with it. Those of you that follow the "Getting to Know Each Other" thread will remember this piece, but for the rest here's a quick recap. We were asked to try something new. As I don't sculpt I decided to try my hand at something simple. Enter the Master Series Ellen Stone that I received in the Secret Sophie exchange. While she is a hot cowgirl, she is unfortunately not wearing a hot cowgirl shirt. I made her one, though I did run into a bit of a problem. You see, Ellen has a bandana wrapped around her neck and I thought I could work around it. Turns out that I couldn't (though an expert would have likely managed), and so she ended up with the collar on one side being a bit off. She's still good enough to paint and experiment with so here we go. This is what Ellen looks like after a bit of green stuff. You can see where the knot on the bandana got in my way. I should have pressed the collar down a bit more as well, but live and learn. and here is why. Proper style of shirt. I considered it likely that the hat would get in the way of painting her eyes so I left it off to start. I also added three buttons onto her shirt. They are heroic scale buttons, which is why they are a little larger than normal. So i started with blocking in a lot of the colors just to cover the white primer. Her duster is an excuse to try out the Scalecolor Fantasy & Games line of paint that I picked up a few months back. First impression - Blackert Brown is not a good color for basecoating, even over plain white. It took a few too many coats for solid coverage. With a good bit of the primer covered I moved on to the eyes. You can always make a pretty good argument that zenithal lighting + hat = no dots in the eyes but it seems to be the thing to do with minis. I guess everyone now is just used to seeing stage lighting and camera flashes (as the girl above). Of course, tiny white dots never end up in the right place on the first attempt. So we have to fix them. I touched up a few places while I was at it. Turns out that my old basecoating brush doesn't have quite the point that it used to. It still holds a lot of paint but the precision isn't there anymore. One last thing to do before attaching her hat is to get some color on her face. I put a shadow directly under the brim but did the cheeks and below in a fairly standard manner. Her face needs some more work but I decided it was good enough to stop and attach her hat. With the eyes done I seem to be able to reach the rest, and I don't want to call her face "done" and then screw it up gluing the last piece on. I don't have any major plans for tomorrow (beyond continuing to watch basketball) so I expect to make some good progress.
  8. Next up in my painting journey for my current Pathfinder game. The Stag Lord, a.k.a. the first Big Bad that the party will encounter (likely at the next session, so I may need to speed up the painting process near the end to get him done). This is also proving to be my first "Moby Dick" mini, or perhaps "Murphy's Law" if you prefer. When I first opened him up, I learned that he was missing his bow arm. While it's certainly plausible he'll lose that arm when he encounters the PCs, it seemed a bit premature to me. :) Fortunately, Reaper Customer Service is awesome and even though it was months after I had placed the order, they still replaced the entire mini for free, which is doubly awesome since as a newbie painter I don't have a lot of random extra bits lying about for basing materials, conversions, etc., so getting a full package was pretty sweet (even though I'd have been thrilled with just the one missing piece). Next thing I noticed as I assembled this guy was that he required a lot of gap filling. The helm was a rather loose fit and the cloak didn't really line up in back either. Ironically, this actually didn't bother me much since i saw it as a chance to practice my gap filling which I have not had to do too much of to date. So with that out of the way, I set about priming and getting the base coat on the skin done. Can't really see it here, but I then noticed a weird issue on the skin. For some reason, the paint on his skin began to crack. This is puzzling to me as I am not sure what could be causing it. I had used the same bottle of paint very recently (like less than a week ago) with no problems. Any thoughts on what could have caused it? I've gone over it with another coat and will see how it holds up, but hopefully he won't need a Simple Green Bath. That said, I'm open to suggestions here. The initial plan from here is to go with kind of a dirty bone look on the helm, gray for the cloak, and Coal Black for the armor pieces. Haven't quite decided what to do with the leggings yet, but I'm thinking possibly a darker brown, but I am very much open to suggestions as I freely acknowledge I only have a basic grasp (if that) of color theory. Anyway, thanks for looking and please feel free to provide C&C as I go. I am always looking for pointers, tips, etc. as I continue to slowly improve to a somewhat passable state. :) Ultimately I will be aiming for Table Top quality which I don't think I will have too much trouble achieving (well my version of TT anyway).
  9. I saw amazing French sculptor Gautier Giroud posting up WIP pics of this amazing bust and knew I just HAD to have him, picked him up from Cinemodeles-creations. He's jumped up in my queue today while I'm home from work on a personal day. Here's the the cast in resin pieces, held together by some blue tack so I could take the pics of the resin - I've used my airbrush for the first time today, primed up Deadpool and 4 giants (the giants first to get the hang of the airbrush). Here's where he's at now - I drilled holes in his nose so that I can do the smoke sniffing scene as it's meant to be from the movie, which I'll probably use cotton or some other material to complete the effect. Going to get started on some painting of him now.
  10. Well I since I don't have enough WIP's going I thought I start one for my survivors. I noticed that I can manage to get through at least 4 a month. So in I plan to work on these guys when I need a break from the unDead. The first up is Josh the Thug: And the reaming 4 from the Season 1 box: And 4 more from 2 of the guest box set I picked up to round my survivors to 5/5 female/male.
  11. I'm working on a few different projects right now, so rather than start threads for all of them, I'm consolidating. I'll use this thread until June or so and then switch to a summer one. Or slack off some more, whichever is easiest! I need to get crackin' or I'll be in super trouble come Reapercon. First, I need a dark sword project because, having cleaned the hobby room this weekend I discovered I had too many unpainted pretties. I decided I need to work on my OSL and color balance this year, so I want to make a cave and have the mini emerging into sunlight from darkness. It'll give me a chance to work on monochrome transitioning to color. So, the dual wielder: I've sketched in the colors and started some of the shading. I need to branch out my colors choices for skin, so I'm playing with bright skin and bright skin highlight. It's more robust than rosy skin- much pinker and bright skin highlight is creamy yellowish. the highlight is linen white for both the shadowed and sunlit areas. The browns are mahogany and chestnut gold. I used corporeal shade and solid black on the dark side. I love how the mix of the blue and chestnut gives this deep green shade. I'll be glazing a sunlight effect in with yellows and oranges, so I need to make sure the colors I use can work in that range. Plus, the deep blue on the backside will be a nice complement. Next project is Bombshell. I found my stash of these when cleaning as well. Hooray for cleaning! Again with the playing with skin colors... I feel a need to get funky. I wanted a red skin for demon princess lady. Red skin is problematic, since the brain reads a variety of tan or neutral type colors as synonymous with skin. Anything too saturated and it looks alien or unreal. it throws the brain off. So, with red, I have to avoid the pink or orange trap while making sure it's desaturated enough to read as skin. Once again, the bright skin triad comes to the rescue! This time, I used spattered crimson as the base, with layers of bright skin shadow and bright skin. Bright shadow is pinkish, bright skin is orangey but not too much so that is looks "wrong." On this mini I haven't figured out what I want to do with the eyes yet, so they're staring blankly at me! I had some olive green leftover on my palette, so I used that to test-highlight the black. I think it'll work. I'll probably work the red into the hair as a highlight though. I want to put a kalladrax head in front of her as some sort of weird altar piece. lastly, I need color! More color!! Awww, rats! I'm playing with complementary colors to demonstrate they really can be used together and play nicely... Plus we seem to have been running into a lot of rats lately in our game, so I want to be prepared!
  12. I've been painting this for a few weeks, but haven't posted any of my progress photos. I'll be posting things soon. For more info on this project, you can check out my request for help thread here where I discuss a few issues. Here are the descriptions I've been basing my paint job on. I've decided to make my interpretation sliiiightly further along in the change, because... we'll it's already going to be difficult. Photos soon.
  13. Hello, With the updates to the rules I figured I should get more painting done for Warmachine. I have found I paint faster with feedback, and as the previous forum I was using slowed considerably, I was invited here by a regular. The first group on the block is most of the rest of my mercs. There's a few more that will likely need their own threads later. It's a range of new and old, so from Left to right: Herne and Jonne - PIP Code: 41005 The two black based minis, I got them at a miniature market swap meet type event with MK1 cards, so they're probably the oldest minis in this. Bases are Secret weapon resin Town Square Bases. Gorman di Wulfe - PIP Code: 41014 He'll be the second time I've painted this model. Ghordson Basher - PIP Code: 41082 Back row, and falling down, because I tend to paint in parts. Devil's Shadow Mutineers - PIP Code: 41104 These three are on modified secret weapon blasted wetlands bases, three pirates in the front row. Classic Mule PIP Code: 41019 - Metal mule, because I enjoy the design a bit more than the conglomerated kit plastic kit, standing on a secret weapon Town Square Base. Rutger Shaw PIP Code: 41075 - Should have been painted a long time ago, as evidenced by the partial base coat. Ashlynn D'elyse PIP Code: 41090 - Awesome mini, huge banner that I don't know what to do with yet. Gastone Crosse Kickstarter Edition (no pip code) - one of the daggers is cracked so I'll need to repair it somehow in this wip.
  14. Hi all, Crazy idea that has been floating around my noggin for months now is finally starting to come together. Never done anything like this before so we'll see where this leads. Cinder, with gaps filled with green stuff. Her legs are a little bent so I can't quite attach her to her base so I'll use the terrain and pin her where she needs to be. Cinder, 2 hatchlings, some quail eggs and tree bark (rocks) for some of the landscaping. Plan is to have to eggs sitting on a pile of treasure. Going to hit Michael's to see if I can find a suitable base for it otherwise I'll be using cutting something out of some MDF for the base. I had thought to make this "tiered" and have an adventurer climbing up in search of the treasure but I decided to reign myself in as it's my first diorama attempt. Thanks for looking.
  15. So, in this thread I'm documenting my progress at Painting and Modifying a bunch of Minis for the D&D Actual Play Podcast The Misadventures of Max's Minions to represent all of the PCs in it, Past, Present and Future! Several of these are Reaper minis this time around. The Podcast can be found here if you are interested... http://maxsminions.com/ The PCs and their Mini-Minions so far... Sting the Pixie Rogue Dog the Beastmaster Ranger(And his Badly made "Kord Hat".) Salle the Goblin Sorceress? Kildrick the Dwaren Cleric of "The First Church of Kildrick the Navel-less" Stasi Xen the Human Fighter Dana Toren the Eladrin Warlord Most of these are in the earliest stage of work in progress. I thought I might as well chronicle this progress somewhere, so I decided on here. Hopefully, I can get a bit of help and support as I endeavor to complete this project. I already know I need a lot of Luck for this. I'm not gonna ask for anyone to give any of your luck for this. Just asking for a bit of Support and maybe a bit of advice. GF
  16. OK so I'm still trying to figure this new forum out some. So I thought I show my current project.
  17. Sooo... instead of focusing on my February goals, my ADHD brain has wandered off and pulled this little guy out of his box... I usually fail so badly at these WIP threads as I am terrible at actually finishing my projects but I'm going to try to not over-think this guy and get some paint on him. Hopefully my brain will sort out the base for Cinder while I'm working on something else... He has been primed black and white (zenithal) thus far. Tomorrow, after drywall and mudding work, hopefully will be colors. Thanks for watching.
  18. This has been sitting on the self of shame for a while. Decided to pull it down and use it to test a color scheme that I want to use for a different model. Looking or feedback. I wanted a somewhat traditional look, but switched up some tans where I normally see whites or blacks.
  19. I had an idea for a quick paint while my wife does some paint by numbers. The goal is to be done tonight, though I don't know if that will happen anymore. She's stopped painting and now we're watching Brooklyn 99 while she does some embroidery. There may also be Scotch (Bruchladdich) involved later, providing further reason to stop.
  20. So the mini I ended up choosing for my Partner was Alastriel #02967 I actually had kinda wanted a different one but this was one of the choices I'd narrowed down and I erm accidentally forgot to order the other when ordering this one. I don't have a lot of "girl" minis so I had decided to get several and see how they looked in person. Anyway, this one was a contender and it's a quite interesting model. My partner wanted a kind of wand/mace in her hand, and I'd thought about getting rid of the staff, but it's just too nice. So I decided to 'convert' the sword she's holding to a 'wand'. Somehow a snake ended up around it (yes, that's meant to be a snake, be kind :P I'm not a sculptor). It seemed to fit pretty good actually. A minor note, the poor little head fell down a bit while it's curing and now I can't move it :( so it's not quite in the plane I wanted it to be in. (If anyone has any suggestion of how to fix it, I'm all ears) So anyways, here's the WIP shot: I did a little work on the flesh and the hair atm. And while it's hard to see, her eyes. With the way she was holding the sword originally I had to cut her hand and rotate it, so she's got a bit of GS at the wrist, which I'm hoping will blend in ok. And (not shown) I also extended her cloak on the back a bit, to reattach to the wand hand as it was now a bit higher.
  21. 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.
  22. [EDIT: Split from another thread: GCB Paints: 77192 Kaladrax. I'm resurrecting this thread because I'm finally pulling the Hydra out to finish!] Inspired by tonight's episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", and the final week before the season finale, I settled on this mini as my next project: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/hydra/latest/77191 Hail Hydra!
  23. Once again I'm trying to pull myself out of a painting slump (this one stretching for most of the year). I recently attended my first paint workshop. While I mostly learned how much I have to learn, and that air brushes are pretty cool, I did rekindle some of my desire to paint. And in an atempt to keep it going until the holiday break I thought I'd try a WIP thread. I've been holding on to the brigands from Red Box Game for some time now... so no time like the present. First up (actually second...) is Smarty Sean. And his hood going from highlighted then shaded (first pic) to mostly done for now. And the first miniature is Burt the Brash (but I didn't take any pictures until now). So here he is with his face and hood done for now. Next will be the tunic I think.
  24. When I first saw this guy, I wanted to paint him. Of course, I didn't realize how big he was. I bought him but have just had him sitting on a pedestal waiting for a reason to use him. Then I started hearing rumors of Frostgrave, but ignored it for a while. Then one day I looked up Frostgrave because I kept hearing about it. And there it was... the perfect reason to use him. I got in my Frostgrave book and ideas started coming on a warband to support our Ogre mage. Once I finalized my starting warband list, and now have a fairly comprehensive list of add-ons I can pick up, I figured it was time to paint him. I cleaned him up as best I could. He has a warped casting that looks like the two sides didn't meet up properly at a couple of extreme edges. In most of the middle it wasn't bad, but there are some spots that would need to have some things resculpted with a knife and are in hard to reach areas. I did what I could and will live with what I left. As my only free time has either been rain or after dark, I used brush-on primer. I was going to do skin and hair in the white and use the black primer for the other areas, but something was wonky on the black primer so I ended up just doing the white brush on primer for all of it (except the feet, need to come back and do that area soon). I took a shower so I could figure out colors for him (stirs the creative juices) and think I am going to go with orange-red hair and blue eyes, so fair skin on the rest of him. I started in with 9046 Fair Shadow for the body and put Brown Liner on the leather and wood areas. In the process found several more heads with hair hanging from various pieces (now up to 3). Going to have to go over all of the painted skin again before mixing up the next set. I will say, though, this guy eats paint like nobodies business! Soooo much skin! Still trying to work out his spells, but I'm leaning toward an odd mix and going with Enchanter, and if I do that I've got to revise my warband and find me a good construct (or two or three).
  25. This is an attempt at an ongoing list of my various projects. I hope to list them chronologically in four categories (My minis, my cardstock builds, "Other, and My Daughter's Mad Paint Skills) My Miniature WIPs: Elf Pikeman - Warhammer Fantasy Tutorial box Minotaur and Goblins - Warhammer Quest Dwarf - Warhammer Quest 06023: Anhurian Swordsman - Reaper (Learn to Paint Kit #1 - WIP) 02544: Barrow Rat - Reaper (Learn to Paint Kit #1 - WIP) 02512: Tsuko, Male Monk - Reaper (Learn to Paint Kit #2 - WIP) 77005: Ogre Chieftain - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77195: Mr. Bones - Reaper Bones (WIP, Show Off) 77155: Lizardman Warrior - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77153: Snakeman Warrior - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77152: Marsh Troll - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77154: Lizardman Spearman - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77008: Garrick the Bold (Sir Forscale) - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77132: Barnabus Frost - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77076: Lysette, Female Elf, Reaper Bones (WIP) 77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77026: Young Fire Dragon - Reaper Bones (WIP) 50085: Deep Sea Diver - Reaper Chronoscope (WIP) 77149: Damien, Hellborn Wizard - Reaper Bones (WIP) 77020: Bathalian - Reaper Bones (WIP) Cardstock Modeling WIPs: The Maiden in progress - Pirate Ship by WorldWorks Games The Maiden complete Castle Scene setup for gaming Underground Dungeon encounter The "Other" Category: DIY Light Tent complete (I really need to buy some lights to actually use this thing) My Little Pony Birthday Party Stuff My Daughter's Mad Paint Skills (and other young painters): My Daughter's First Miniature Talae's Daughter Paints Some More Minis My little sisters paint some minis Another Unicorn (her favorite model, by far) Note: The original content of this post is below this dotted line. This was done in an attempt to organize my progression in various aspects of my hobbies. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I figure that keeping all of what I do in one place is a decent idea. First things first: I recently cleared off and organized my workspace. This enabled me to spend last night and today working on a project that I had let go to the wayside (Pingo's thread inspired me to return to it): The Maiden. I have one built that I did years ago, but it is not color. It was a fun project at the time, but I have put off the color version for too long and it was the bulkiest thing on my workspace and so it makes sense to be the first project to complete. I am hoping that posting a couple of pics will help to motivate me. What would do even better is if some of you guys would post comments/questions/critiques/etc. My wonderful Robo-buddy: Some of the pieces laid out. They are on black foamcore and you can barely make out the transparencies in this pic: The hull is coming together: I will try and post some progress shots of what I get done tonight, but I am hoping you guys can help push me through this project.
