  1. I have some clear plastic Christmas ornaments that I am going to make little scenes and put the Mystic Warrior children from Hasslefree in for my grandkids for Christmas. So I went from painting big ol' Marthrangul to little bitty kids. (I had a dwarf mage painted in between.) So today was my paint day with a friend. I snipped them off their bars and used my friend's jeweler's drill to drill tiny little holes in their feet for pins. Their feet and legs are so tiny, my usual pinning equipment was too large. I cleaned up all their flash and mold lines, washed them, and then primed. I did their skin and faces. My grandbabies have darker complexions and I want their little Jedis to resemble them so I went with a darker skintone. I used critique from my last mini (dwarf mage) to put more contrast in the skin. I did a base, shade, and highlight and then did half steps in between for smoother blend transitions. These are the tiniest eyes I have ever painted. They are not perfect but they aren't bad and I am leaving them alone because I was happy to not blob paint all over their faces! I plan on doing the "Leia" figure in white robes. Not sure how I plan on doing the shading yet - blue, cream, grey, a little mix of surrounding environment colors. We'll see. She will have a blue "lightsaber". The other two are for the twins so I plan on brown padawan robes for them. He will have a purple "lightsaber" and hers will be green. Their hair was basecoated in P3 Umbral Umber and shaded with a mix of Umbral Umber and Reaper's Nightshade Purple. I have not begun to highlight the hair yet. I need to try out a few browns and find one that does not too closely match their skin color. Here's some photos I took tonight. C&C welcome.
  2. Mother's Day homage from 03233

    With only a week to go I finished the miniature I plan to give dear mum. She is a bit more of an artist than myself so I made a painter out of one of the townsfolk children. And she loves to garden so I put some flowers on the base and freehanded one on the front of the jumper. Can anyone guess what the bag is supposed to be?
  3. Once a year my husband and I run a Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits. It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc. We get a great turnout. The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations. All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors. It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting. A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away. I couldn't do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. Anyway, here are a few of the less blurry photos from yesterday. I've tried to optimize them for loading, so I hope the page isn't too slow.
  4. Painting Bones with my sons.

    I decided to let both my sons paint a few of my Bones figures over the weekend. The weather was dire so I expected a few hours of interest. The youngest (4.5) lasted about and hour where as the oldest (6) kept going for five hours until I had run out of primed models. I was really impressed with how they did although I did buy cheap brushes as the concept of maintaining a tip didn't stay for very long. Drybrushing and a few washes were used and I have since varnished the models. Here was the first set of models. Here was my youngest sons model. And here was my oldest interpretation of The Hulk I can't recommend it more and I am sure I won't be the last to post their kids attempts.
  5. Here's some more of my old Citadel pre-slotta goblins which I have been painting this week. These are some goblin children (FTG12). Ahhhhh, aren't they cute, although the boy does look a little grumpy! The girl is carrying a little rag doll which I painted up to match her - kind of like a "(goblin) mini me". I've kept the bases as they are for the "old school" look on my display shelf. Thanks for looking!
  6. The thing about kids...

    The thing about kids is that even if a task calls for a few specific items? ALL related items must be dumped onto the floor and scattered hither, thither, and yon. If one must drive a screw, forget just getting a screwdriver -- the ENTIRE TOOLBOX must be upended and all tools examined and touched and then left out, that the invisible pickup elves will have something to do after dark. The thing about kids is that being WAITED upon is not the same as having someone wait on YOU. Waiting thirty seconds between the lunch bell and being able to flee the room like rabid vikings is a bitter, unfair eternity, whereas fifteen minutes to do six single digit multiplication problems is entirely reasonable. The thing about kids is...
  7. From the mouths of babes...

    So I received my Bones II pledge Monday last week, and as I was sorting through them my 2-year-old daughter saw them, and said 'I want to play with the dragons' - probably something to do with my letting her play with the dragons I picked up in Bones I as she's decided that all plastic figures in bonesium are dragons. Based on her interest, I decided to dump all the Bones figures I have into a 10 litre tub and give them to her to play with in her playpen (pulling out those that I have a specific use for). This has lead to her learning a few new words, like elemental, giant, ogre and chimera...but the most interesting things have been what she has decided that some things are. The cutest of which is what she's decided that the eyebeast (77043) is According to her, these are now to be known as "rabbits" As I know there are a few parents here I thought I'd share this and see if anyone else has interesting stories about what their children have said when young...
  8. Village kiddies, Hasslefree Miniatures

    The three Village kiddies from Hasslefree Miniatures.
  9. This work is going to be a diorama in support of human rights in China. In particular, it will protest their horrendous one-child policy. The scene will feature a mother, defending her three children from Chinese police. At this point, I'm still at the planning stage. I would love any advice or ideas you all might have to share! Mother will be 50260: Xiufang, Femme Fatale Children will be the girl, baby, and the boy on the far right from 03233: Townsfolk: Children. Chinese policeman #1 will be 50036: Saburo Aritomo, Meiji Japanese Officer, with the mustache removed, and the sword hand converted to an empty hand. Chinese policeman #2 will be a compilation of two different figures, and a head from a boneyard sprue set: Body = 50006: Col. Edward Titchener, British Officer Arms = 50106: British Bobby Head = P50008B: Heads (middle one) + +
