Haven't painted since February and now that is too hot to be outside all the time I think I am going to try to paint a pirate crew. I've got a few figures in mind, I'll choose tonight.

Got 2 Eldar Night Spinners to paint (about 50% done with both), an Eldar Nightwing inbound from Forgeworld, a squad of Warp Spiders, a squad of Striking Scorpions, and a squad of Howling Banshees (acquired at 30-40% off, as stores blow out the metals in preparation for resin). But the big news is I'm going to Historicon on Friday with a fatty wad o' cash. Will pick up a few GW products, but most will be spent on Historicals (esp. Clash of Empires ruleset, and War of the Roses figures from the Perrys)...

I've got a pile o' stuff to finish up before GenCon. Mostly cowboys and chronoscope ladies.

I'm working on a chain fighter [female], and assuming I can pull out of this rut and get her done I'll be moving on to my converted Brock Battlebow [to a rifleman] and Charon.

I get to put my new game room together (which will suspiciously look like my old game room just in a different house).

Painting? We'll see what happens.

Edit: Great, my beloved book case with glass doors is demolished. Ironically, the glass in the doors and the glass shelves are what survived.

I'm not so sure I'd want to get hit by a missile with a "dog brain" AI.

Wow, that's... Yikes. Any little dudes bite it?


My goal: take pictures of the stuff I painted last month. :blink:

I packed the minis all myself so there shouldn't be too much to repair, aside from the multi-piece ones that came apart during packing.

Game room's pretty much set up and the rest of the house as well. Actually got to apply pigment to a couple starships!

I can't believe the month is over. I picked some pirates and then was too busy to do any painting. My garage, (man cave)is where I do most of my painting and it is full of "stuff" as we get ready for my son to go off to college and then have a garage sale. I intend to get some painting done in August. Wow did July just fly by or what!

I'm jealous...my plans for a man cave ended up being fruitless. I got it all cleaned out, the desks and lamps and such in place, then found out that I don't have an extension cord long enough to reach. It was the perfect place, too...I'm a single male with a walk-in closet in his bedroom; I don't need that much space, and my old wooden desk fit perfectly.

Agreed, though...I got nothing done either. I'm finding I don't like MSP's "Ruddy Flesh"...the one figure I put it on came out looking like an Oompa Loompa. Can anyone recommend a better 'sun-beaten' color? I'm going for the look of a caucasian that spends most of their time outdoors...and have been tempted to try GW's 'Snakebite Leather' next, but am really, really dreading trying to go around those eyes again.
