So... after really going through the books for the last 8 months, I legit like 1st Edition AD&D better than 2nd now.  I started this as a silly what-if, but it has grown on me and I've gone grognard.  I even like the psionics and super weird Bard.

 

 Technically, that version of the Bard is the closest they've ever gotten to the actual historical Celtic occupation....

Wonder what I can do with the contents of two full boxes of expired glow-sticks...

 

 Do you want the short list of legal things you can do with two boxes of expired glow-sticks, the full list of everything you can do with them, the list of things you can do with them that requires a quick after-midnight trip to a convenience store and an all-night taco stand, or the list of things that require a black market connection in addition to left-over glow-sticks?

Although, since I happen to have all four of those lists saved as a single document, I could just send all of them...

Mashed Mage Toes.. this seems like a strange sort of meal you could only find at a goblin's dinner table.

      Rather than clutter up the topic in sci-fi general with the details of how I'm painting these guys, I decided to start a wip thread. 
       
      The plan is to paint all the marines in the primaris half of the new warhammer 40000 starter box.
       
      So far I know the base colors I'm going with are purple armor, silver trim, blue weapons, green lenses. I haven't decided on squad markings or chapter symbol yet. This is of course not the colors of a canonical chapter, so I'm making it up as I go.
       
      I painted two test models just to make sure purple, blue, silver looked ok.

      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.

      My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less).
       
      There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets.
       
      These are the Bones minis 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 as a free bonus 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke), who was simply a "Vale Swordsman Elf Grunt" in metal (she was the first character picked for the one represented by Kassandra of the Blade, and I painted her up anyway as an extra and useful figure).
       
      I painted these really fast -- for me -- in two afternoons, one to prime and paint faces and one to paint the rest of them.  It's not quite my one-hour robot speed paint, but for me it was super fast and the results are more tabletop-quality than my usual run.
       
      First I washed and primed all the Bones with Reaper's Brown Liner.  I did not clean flash up as much as normal owing to the tight deadline.

       

       
      Skin work, using simple mixes of earth pigments plus white: Burnt Umber (for the darker skin tones), Burnt Sienna (for the pinker, lighter skin tones), Red Iron Oxide (for really pink skin) ,and Yellow Ochre plus Titanium White. Hair was laid in with the same palette plus Carbon Black.

       
      Rough shading with ruddy Burnt Sienna-Titanium White shadows and greyer Burnt Umber-Titanium White shadows.

       
      This character, a former Fae, has dramatic blue-streaked hair.  This is a classic mix of Phthalocyanine Blue and enough Titanium White to make it opaque.

      Earlier this week I got my hands on a set of bones 3 mythos cultists.
       
      I'm not really that into cthulhu, but I do love a crazy looking cult. So I went with purple robes with bronze weapons, and painted the faces as masks. Not really sure if they were meant to be masks, but I think it worked.

      This is Reaper's 59009: Mad Scientist, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.  I thank Reaper for proffering Victorian Science Ladies in Big Dresses, and I am looking forward to painting her up.
       
      I am, as usual, working with Golden matte fluid acrylic paints.  This is my standard priming, a thin wash of thinned-down Titanium White allowed to dry for a day then washed further with thinned-down Burnt Umber.  I don't know if I've mentioned, but this is a classic Italian Renaissance priming technique.  I can't remember the term, but it translates as "veil" of color and is supposed to give richness to subsequent layers of color.  In this case it also makes details pop.

       
      I clearly missed a few spots with the Burnt Umber.  I will be repairing those as I go along.
       
      I started with her skin.  I like the Foglios' "Girl Genius" comic, so she is a little inspired by them.  They have plenty of diversity in their cast, and I thought this figure might look well with darker skin.
       
      I have found that Burnt Umber, a slightly cool, rich dark brown, makes a good basis for dark human skin.  This is the first layer, a light scumble (like a glaze but using a lighter color over a darker instead of vice versa) of Burnt Umber lightened just a touch with Titanium White.

       
      Dark skin, I find, looks well with warm highlights based on Yellow Ochre.  I painted her skin quite dark, so I made the highlights a little cooler, less Yellow Ochre and more Titanium White, admixed with Burnt Umber.

       
      Here she is with her skin finished and her eyes painted in.  I washed some clear Quinacridone Magenta over her lips.  Her eyes were pretty enormous to begin with and I made them even larger.

       
      I am thinking mauve for her dress.  Purple ftw!
