Not the Last Tour video... /facepalm ... I still regret segments of that video...

Now don't get me wrong, the lighting and staging was superb, but it's what happened after the solo and then backstage that makes me cringe.  

Please... just fast forward through that part...

 

I kinda like it, I mean these things can happen, right?

It makes them more human instead of unreachable superstars.

 

Ok, backstage, maybe that was a bit too much.

But I'm sure the donkey is allright.

Why would we want to be HUMAN?!?!  Didn't we give you enough Krill yet?

And don't make me show you how the Nuclear part started...

*** From a backstage room comes a howling guitar and some rough vocals ***

 

Oh it's been getting so hard
Livin' with the things you do to me, aha
Oh my dreams are getting so strange
I'd like to tell you everything I see
Oh, I see a krill at the back
As a matter of fact his eyes are red as the sun
And krillette in the corner let no one ignore her
'Cause she thinks she's the passionate one

Oh, yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And the krill at the back said
Everyone attack and it turned into a krillroom blitz
And krillette in the corner said
Krill, I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a krillroom blitz
Krillroom blitz, krillroom blitz, krillroom blitz
Krillroom blitz

I'm reaching out for something
Touching nothing's all I ever do
Oh, I softly call you over
When you appear there's nothing left of you, aha
Now the krill in the back
Is ready to crack as he raises his hands to the sky
And krillette in the corner is ev'ryone's mourner
She could kill you with a wink of her eye

Oh yeah, it was electric, so frightfully hectic
And the band started leaving, 'cause they all stopped breathing

 

Oh yeah, it was like lightning, everybody was frightening
And the music was soothing, and they all started grooving

 

It's it's a krillroom blitz, it's it's a krillroom blitz
It's it's a krillroom blitz, yeah, it's a krillroom blitz

R.I.B.B.I.T. liability.  They only release notices on the ones that escape or have already caused damage.

Allegedly.

Ahh, another Monday! Day off work, phone turned off so I cannot be summoned to work, and my Reaper stuff landed this morning. Also the internet stayed on long enough for me to read the last 20 or pages! Tis a good day!

All that remains is to hit the painting table before the minis start hitting me.

The machines we have are over 50 years old. My mom's, my grandmother's, and my great-grandmother's. G-grandmother's machine is far older, an original Singer electric still attached to its table.. It has some issues (can't thread a bobbin anymore) but is the best working out of all three. We won't buy any of the newer plastic machines. Maybe check ebay for older ones that service better?

 

I think they might still make good sewing machines (mine is only about 20 years old) but probably you need to find a specialty store to buy them.  And they will cost more than $150.  Which reminds me that my trusty little Janome needs a tune up, it's constantly jamming and the stitches aren't straight.

I ordered a pizza with pepperoni and olives. And cheese.

 

The pizza place forgot the cheese. I have bare pizza sauce with pepperoni and olives.

Um....isn't cheese one of the primary ingredients?

Wow...glad it sorta turned out ok, though.

Mmmmm! Breakfast for dinner tonight!

 

Waffles and bacon and sausage! :wub: 

That sounds good! We had tacos last night.

Tonight I had to have what food eats. At least it was free.

I may have to go out foraging  for some real food (meat) later on though.

If there are any stories of wild animal attacks in New Jersey, IT WASN'T ME!

So, today's tally:

 

Painted: 5

Finished prep: approximately 47

Washed: approximately 57

 

Some numbers are approximate because when I'm hurting I'm not really good at keeping track of numbers.

Wow, you're on one heck of a tear; keep up the good work!

WOOT! Rock and roll, just finished another "figure" for a friend on the forum. Just need to seal it up and take pics. I won't post pics on here until after the friend gets it, it's a surprise and they'll know who it's for as it's very obvious.

 

Feels good to be in the painting groove again, has been a long time since I sat down and pumped out multiple figures. This one was fun because it was rather easy to do without too much crazy detail. I think after I seal it and take pics I'm done for the night tho.

You, too!

      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!
