The Little Helper

Recommended Posts

A little while ago a work colleague turned up with a kitten.  At first had to ban her from the study with my minis, etc.  But thankfully Pikelet is now much better behaved and will happily sit on my shoulder or next to me on the chair and watch me paint.  Seems enthralled by me painting.  Which is kind of cool.   Only occasionally have to stop her from coming onto table.  Found these pics on my phone I took to post on Facebook for the guys in my gaming group. 


Oh yes occasionally she likes to sit on my head near the lamp now it is getting cold in Goulburn as it is warm.

Since she's still young, maybe get her a playmate? Of about the same age?


i have found having two does help with the "why aren't you paying attention to me" jealousy.

Yeah, you can replace that with the 'why are paying attention to the other one' jealousy!::P:

Be careful with any winged minis around her. Some cats think anything with wings is food.

Very cute.  Enjoy the company while she's small - you'll find that cats will get into everything they shouldn't once they get too big to sit on your shoulder.  I've got six, and they have the run of the house - except for my workshop.

I've never seen a mi-ke wear a tuxedo before.


@Thes Hunter - Contrary to popular belief, it's entirely possible to walk a cat on a leash - the standard joke being that his name is Whiskers and he lives in Peoria.  The Carpet Otter thought it was fabulous (it also curbed her tendency to streak out the door), The Little Wildcat considers it just short of lethal provocation.  In practice it's sort of a Yakov Smirnoff joke, since it's really just attaching a tether and following the cat around.

Yeah, I thought of trying to train the kitties on the leash when they were kittens. I didn't have the support of the husband. But yeah with a clicker, and enough treats I'm sure I could have. Now they are adults I doubt I'd be as successful.

      I have a private commission to sculpt a set of cats.  The client (a member of this forum) wants them as a gift for someone.  I don't want to go into a lot of details or show reference pictures in the case that that someone happens to see this post, but the client did give me permission to share this here. I'll let the client decide whether or not he/she wants to reveal him/herself.
      The cats are to be 1 inch tall at the head if they were standing, which puts them roughly in scale for a 50 to 60 mm human.  One will be sitting and one loafing.  Here are the armatures with basic skulls, eyeballs, and underpinning.

      There's a French wargame called "Alkemy" which has a faction of pseudo-Egyptian cat-people called the Khaliman Republic (or République Khalimane in the original).  A few years back I snagged a starter set of 5 resin figures I found on clearance because, well, cat people.
      Currently I am involved in an elaborate and fascinating campaign combining White Wolf's World of Darkness (the one in Vampire the Masquerade second edition and Werewolf the Apocalypse) with its "Exalted" game, second edition (which was originally sold as the prehistory of the World of Darkness, although they backed away from that pretty fast).
      This character is a PC for that game.  The person is a lycanthrope, or rather a feline therianthrope.  He has a human form, but I painted up the cat man because it's more fun.
      This is the first small-scale non-terrain resin I've ever assembled or painted.  It was a little fiddly and I was worried about its fragility.  There are a few places with what is probably flash that I didn't have the courage to try to slice off.
      Comments welcome.
      WIP thread here.

      These are a couple of the animal companion sets that I painted for one of my players (minus the spider which I have not finished yet).
      I didn't want to paint the cat like a plain panther and I decided to use an ocelot as inspiration. My favorite is the little wolverine guy even though the photos make the river rocks look like pastel M&M's lol.
      My usual background got ruined so I have to make do until I get a new one printed or buy a fancy one. The bear looks better in hand and I used blacks and browns in his fur so he doesn't look so flat as he does in the photos.
      I am not happy with the fake snow and how it turned out. It looked really good when I put it on but not so good once the glue dried. I guess next time I will try baking soda and see how that works out. These are for gaming though so baking soda wouldn't have been the best choice probably.
      Anyway, here they are! C&C welcome.

      I wanted to share this here for those of you not on the social media outlets.
      My daughter's latest project was the Crazy Cat Lady that I got her for Christmas.  She painted the cats first which just amazed me because some of the detail she put on them was awesome.  Once she was done and I could not get her to touch up anything else she wanted to base.  I decided she would do it all except the super glue.  So away she went with craft glue and basing materials. She has a few more things I got her for Christmas and then birthday is in less than two weeks and I have a couple more minis for then too.  Should be a busy year if actually sit down and paint.
