Wasabi Doritos are really good.

 

Saw bags of them on the shelf, but honestly was a bit dubious.  May have to give them a try now.

I have 4 hours to prepare for game.

 

My apartment has no water.

 

Okay.

Maybe substitute  Coke  or Mountain Dew for water?  Because: gamers ;)

For drinks, sure.  For a shower?  I'd pass.

I thought I was an animal. The only other choices are vegetable or mineral.

 

Spoiler test again.

Success. Thanks, @Glitterwolf. Now I can post the pic I want in the Summer exchange thread.

I've showered in coke and beer at different times. Expensive and you don't feel real clean afterwards.

@Doug Sundseth, thanks for the advice. I know just enough about photography to understand it all. I think I will skip the light box then. I'm getting good enough photos for now with what I figured out yesterday and today. Having the second light and a white backdrop has helped a lot.

Tomorrow is the day!  I have set aside the entire day tomorrow to paint.  I have done everything to clear my schedule completely for tomorrow. I will wake up early and paint until I cannot.  It has been far too long since I laid paint on a mini.

Go Baldur Go! *cheers* Paint the things!!! And don't forget to eat and hydrate :poke:

 

I am painting an easy mousling right now. My last three figures have been tough. Going with this then back to hard stuff!....

 

Unless I decide to freehand a unicorn farting a rainbow. Which I might :blink:

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.
       

      Left to right:
      Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero
       
      Details:

       
      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!

      So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:)

      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.
