Randomness XII: Eighteen! Purple! Squirrels!

Recommended Posts

Washer and dryer are now in the garage. I am sore from top to

bottom, and we are still at least a day away from laying the first tile.

 

I'm getting too old for this elf.

 

I need to be richer so I can hire younger people to do this work for me.

 

Or get into better shape.

 

Hmm.

 

Rather be rich I think.

The one time I decide to answer the "1-800 Service" and screw around with the telemarketer, it turns out to be the wife's appointment reminder for her facial instead.

so, I didn't notice until after I got some paint on them, but half the lizard man minis from bones 3 appear to be lizard women. The ones with spears and the ones that are looking back over their shoulder all have round lower bellies, while the archers and the other club lizard have flatter torsos and a narrower hip.

 

Is that how you identify what gender lizards are?

Give them a map and see if they hold it the right way up

Depends on the kind of lizard. Some of them are similar enough that you would need to wait for it to produce eggs, or inspect fairly invasively.

 

 

But since they're not otherwise fatter in the rest of the body, it's a solid guess that the larger lower torso is for egg production.

So, I just fiddled a bit with Moandain the arch lich. All I can say is: Jebus :blink:

When I first read this, I was picturing something a little more like this:

I'm sorry your beloved English education system has failed you, and allowed you to look the bafoon. 

 

When one actually examines the distributions of ability to perform spatial tasks, it is obvious that a number of women will outperform men.

Again my apologies if this threatens your manhood. I would suggest the purchase of a sports car as a remedy.

Oh yeah.  I was once part of a study into spatial visualization and the ability to rotate complex shapes in one's head. After the study was over the researchers told me I blew the bell curve for both men and women.

      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.
