Would love too, but find my my first (though I am sure I have it) would be hard.  I just know it is a Grenadier painted late 70s or early 80s.

Feel free to post anything from that same time period of when you started out in the hobby, it doesn't have to be your very first, but around the time when you were starting out is all I'm trying to see if people want to play along.

Wow, SG! Great improvement! 

 

@Cash - Your Rollo is still one of my favorite pieces from you as well!

Great improvement on your part (and really, everyone's!). I love threads like this, you know all about my personal journey to improve.

 

Speaking of which, man...Rollo is a year and a half old. I need to paint up something 'nice'! Looking back at my blog, what a run of game plastic I've had lately!

Thanks!

 

Totally agree. To me this is a journey we all start at roughly equal "levels" and everyone learns differently and everyone improves with practice and hard work. It shows that you can become a good or great painter if you put the effort into it. There's no magic pill or tool to speed up the process, the best thing that's happened to me is this forum. The advice, the critiques and the feedback. Such a great way to learn here amongst others who share the passion for the hobby and are so free with their knowledge to help newcomers become addicted. ::P:

 

Would love to see you paint another "nice" piece as well. ::D:

Fantastic !!!

Look at all this talent !!

Fun to see a few duplicate figures painted, and how we took different colors and approaches to them.

Excellent views, and you can learn something from all of these !

I like this idea. I've already posted my first few minis here awhile ago but I might post them for this thread as well, but it will have to wait until after Gencon because my most recent one that I'm fairly pleased with is going to be in the Gencon painting contest.

 

I was planning on making a show off thread when I got back. Should I repost the picture here as well or just link to the other thread?

      In an odd coincidence that I swear I had nothing to do with, the passing of George Romero coincides with my finally completing a set of 77342, Zombies, from the second Bones Kickstarter.
       
      I thought it might be nice if people painted (and shared) zombies, to honor the life of a man who changed horror movies forever.

      Standard Table Top for these guys. I was a little in a hurry but it turned out well enough. I sculpted the bases and used some brick corners from some bricks Ub3r gave me. Again with these guys I put some Nordic runes on them. I hope you guys like them.

      This is a post for everyone to share the tables they play their games on, the more the merrier.
       
      Sci-fi, fantasy, modern, post apoc, horror....anything!
       
      This was the table I laid out last night for our games of infinity.  Sadly I did not get to play a game as we got a bit of a late start and after the first game of the night the others decided it was getting a bit late to start a second game.
       
      I will get a chance to play on it as we have decided to do a little bit of an experiment and leave this table up for a couple of weeks to play all of our games of infinity on.  We are trying to see if by leaving the terrain mostly static and probably keeping the same general list, if we will get a better grasp of how to play our own list no matter what the enemy brings.  By doing this I also hope to see if there are any major flaws in my terrain layout technique/style.
       
      I DO NOT go for fair layouts when I set up a board, I go for more of a realistic look and feel.  This board has quite a few long fire lanes, which could be a bad thing BUT it also has quite a few tightly packed areas where the fire fights would definitely be short ranged.
       
      The mission I chose to play on this particular night was rescue. There are eight civilians on the table, four of which you need to rescue by getting into base to base contact with them and synchronizing yourself with them, of course the four farthest from your deployment zone are the ones you must sync with.  The player with the most synced civies wins, although if you can get your civies back to your deployment zone you can get even more points.  This is a tough mission.
       
      Anyway, pics!
       

       

       

       

       
      As you can see my terrain is not more than primed so don't worry about terrain not being painted or not being well painted.
       
      I just want to see what types of terrain and game boards people set up to play games on.

      Rather than continuing the Kingdom Death: Monster assembly discussion in the acquisitions thread I've created a thread specifically for that purpose.  Post your tips, tricks, and little things you've noticed here and make the lives of your fellow hobbyist a little easier.
       
      To start I'm assembling the minis on the "prologue" sprue, which are conveniently numbered.  While this should keep people from mixing parts together, it's still nice to see pictures!  First up is the lion.  So for things I've noticed:
      The face doesn't want to fit very well.  I had to do some trimming to get it in place, and it looks like I could have still cut away a little more. Attach the lower jaw before placing the rest of the lion's head. If you attach the main part of the head first I don't think it's the end of the world but you'll likely have to cut the tab off of the jaw to slide it into place. The hindquarters didn't fit together quite as nicely as it looked like they would when I dry-fitted it.  You can see the gaps this created below, but they should be easily filled. I'm sure most of you have been at this longer than me, but for the new arrivals an easy way to get the mini to sit flat is to put all three feet in place with a drop of liquid cement and quickly align them as best you can.  Then flip the mini over and press down gently.  Polystyrene does not melt together instantly so you have a window to make adjustments before it sets.  It will probably create a small gap at one of the ankles but it will ensure that your mini doesn't have a paw that is at an angle.  Obviously to do it this way you need to glue the legs to the body before you glue on the feet.  If you go feet first he'll just stand as he stands.

       
      Next up is survivor "C"  This time I remembered to take a pre-assembly pic.  She is pretty straightforward but since I'm at it...
      Her left leg has a nice groove to ensure the hanging fabric goes in place properly.  Doing this first makes it really easy to glue her right leg in place. Her weapon arm is actually covering two sprue attachment points, and should not be glued in place until her torso is attached to her legs.
