Happy Birthday to you, oh great font of interesting knowledge, and wonderful talent. May it be a joyous occasion, and may the year ahead be full of glad tidings, and just enough sad to keep you grounded, and make the good seem all the better.

Aww, thank you, people!   :blush:

 

It's been a fine day so far, the weather cool and sunny.  We went to see the "Wonder Woman" movie (woot!) last weekend and celebrated with friends.  Today we went out to a nice breakfast and my husband gave me some new Bombshell miniatures, including a not-Agent Carter (yay!) and a couple of boxes of obsolete-but-still-cool Games Workshop figures:

Spoiler

These deer-riding wood elf ladies:

sister-of-the-thorn-wood-elves-games-wor

 

And some sort of spectral-looking men with flying glowing hair riding horses.  Rather nifty, but can't recall the box name, sorry.

 

He also gave me some little canisters of sand and tiny pebbles, little jewels and jewelry findings.  He presented them along with a little poem, "Kit Basher", his own parody lyrics to the old song "Witch Doctor".  :lol:

 

My husband is awesome!  :wub: 

 

Tonight we are going somewhere nice but I don't know where yet.  :ph34r:

Lyrics for those who are interested.

 

My Friend the Kitbasher.

 

 

I told the Kitbasher, I had some parts to glue.

I told the Kitbasher, I had to shave them true.

And then the Kitbasher, she gave me this one clue.

 

She told me:

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

 

I told the Kitbasher, the minis fall to bits.

I told the Kitbasher, the parts they would not stick.

And then the Kitbasher, she told me this one trick.

 

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

 

You can keep your minis from me, so they will be unmodded.

And I'll admit, I shouldn't blowtorch hobbits.

But I went out and bought shinies that make things so much keener.

And they'll amp up my armies to be so, so much more meaner.

 

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

 

Bang on and:

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

Hold these, stick this here. Ring. Fang.

Hammer, hammer, things clang.

      This started out as a series of posts in the Randomness thread as I was noodling about with ideas. But things in Randomness get lost fast, and people seemed interested.
       
      So here is how I developed a pen and ink drawing from a preliminary sketch to (hopefully - not quite there yet) a finished drawing.
       
      I'm currently involved in a game set in the World of Darkness combined with Exalted. My PC is a (former) vampire with a certain amount of mental baggage.  This drawing started as a tiny doodle in my sketchbook about The Beast Within, a major leitmotif in White Wolf's vampire games, as seen in the character's House of Memory (a sort of mental structuring invented in the real world in classical times to help people remember awesome amounts of stuff).

       
      The original sketch was about 4 by 8 cm.
       
      The text (if anyone is interested) is "... I could see what of my character was now imposed. Alien ways --" "You weren't frightened?" "They are only memories -- Diagnoses, if you will, of the actual thoughts. They cannot harm me."

      This is another of the PCs for the "Exalted" campaign set in White Wolf's World of Darkness which I'm currently involved in.
       
      This character was a medieval Persian vampire who reverted to human when she Exalted as a Zenith caste Solar.  Among other things, she has a sword which shines with the light of the Sun.
       
      The figure is from Hasslefree, HFA004 "Kat", sculpted by Kev White.  There's a WIP thread here.
       
      The lighting effect changes a lot at different angles so I included lots of pictures.

      This is a figure from the Goth set from the game "Wild in the Streets" by Slow Death Games.  Thanks to FishNJeeps for directing me to them when I needed miniatures of modern people in goth-punk wear for a World of Darkness game.
       
      I painted up the figure as a vampire.  It didn't originally have any facial hair; that's all painted on.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread.  So as a quick note, although I have seen people able to do wonderfully subtle and menacing vampires who still look like vampires, I find that unless I paint mine in stark black and white they look like regular people.

      So I was at the World Model Expo in Chicago last weekend, meeting Corporea and a whole bunch of Reaperites and ogling some of the finest miniatures painting and dioramas the world has to offer (the PA system requested fluent translators at a number of points).
       
      I took some pictures. Normally I've been putting up galleries on Photobucket, but they turned evil quite recently, so I'm attempting to put some up here to share.
       
      Anyhow, much of the show was historical miniatures, a category pretty new to me, and almost everything was much larger scale than the 28mm I'm used to. 
       
      As for the vendors, I regret to say that while for the larger figures the men were young, old, noble, peasant, ugly, handsome, heroic, villainous, commonplace, extraordinary, leaders, followers, white, black, Asian, Elvish, Orcish, cowboys, Vikings, soldiers, and fops; there were far fewer women figures and they were overwhelmingly pin-ups.
       
      Not that I have anything against pin-ups, per se.  I just prefer painting other things.
       
      I did pick up one very nice 54mm armored woman to give a try, only to discover Kuro Cleanbrush had done the same with the same model months ago. Good taste, Kuro!
       
      ( @Liverpuncher also put up a thread for his World Expo photos here.)
       
      Here's a couple of @Wren's pieces, including my own rough approximation of 3D photography: cross your eyes and it's 3-D!

      I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness.  They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke).
       
      WIP thread here.
