My 16 lb sledgehammer. It's probably my favourite and most used tool all round. I use it to repair vehicles and equipment, pound posts and other things. Why is it a garden tool? Because I use it to drive stakes to tie twine to to make neat rows. The wife is the main gardener but she tends to plant things in clumps here and there. I tell her to put them in rows so that if I'm weeding I don't kill them.

My hands, followed closely by my stirrup hoe.

I have learned much from the gardens question...

 

Question for Rcon attendees: Are you all set to pick your classes for ReaperCon??

 

That is not the question of the day for the 14th. But since quite a few people check this thread it is a friendly reminder.  

 

10AM Friday. 

Reaper HQ Time. (CDT)

I think that is 4PM London Time. 

I think that is 8AM San Francisco Time. 

(Do doublecheck for your time zone!!)

T-minus 7 hours or so as I am posting.

 

The Daily Question might get posted after the classes frenzy.

 

Also, this weekend will be Raygunz Weekend and some kind of mini that could generate a zap-ray* would be handy in order to participate.

 

*...starships, big stompy robots, storm marines, space troopers, aliens, silver suited whatevers, small clanky robots...

Yesss!  I have 14 priority classes in 5 time slots... and around an hour or two after the servers go down under the initial stress, I'll be able to waltz in and pick some of them!

I'm good to go for both my wife's classes and mine, including having purchased our memberships.

 

Remember to purchase your membership before trying to get classes!

We wish you could go, too.


I really think we need to get more serious about replacing the GenghisCon painting track with a Denver painting con. Which probably means we need a real trail boss. Any volunteers?

      This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither. 
       
      I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

      So, 2017 was my first year in this hobby. I discovered the joys of miniatures. I discovered Reaper. I discovered Bones 4, and the Reaper forums with it. I'm going to post pictures of everything I've painted this year, more or less in order...with a bit of a blurb about my journey. Starting with before I joined these forums, my first miniatures. 
       
      KOBOLDS - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72557


      These were my first miniatures I painted. Yeah. I started with small kobolds... And with WizKids... (I didn't have primer on hand to start).
       
      GOBLINS - Reaper Bones - 77024

      What comes after kobolds? Goblins. I have no idea how there are only 9, when they come in packs of 6....I only remember painting 9, as well...This is a mystery... Also, these guys got painted based on a Runescape quest...yeah. I'm a nerd.
       
      ADVENTURERS - WizKids Deep Cuts -  72596, 72597, 72600, 72601

      So I used the WizKids adventures for Acolytes in my Hoard of the Dragon Queen game...yeah...these were my first human paint jobs.
       
      Golanth, Half Dragon Warrior - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03463

      Golanth was the first metal mini I painted. I remember loving tinting his armor. I also had to base him to keep him from falling over.
       
      Various Furniture - Reaper Bones - 77319, 77138, 77137

      I wanted some dungeon dressing...
       
      Swarms - Reaper Bones - 77129, 77128

      Thanks to Hoard of the Dragon Queen, the enemies my players are most afraid of are...RAT SWARMS. Yeah, the rat swarms in ch.1 almost ended up with a TPK. Good times.
       
      Halfling Rogue - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72627

      This chick was my first painted player mini. She was a halfling bard. I remember giving up on her eyes.
       
      Dracolisks - Reaper Bones - 77379

      I was super proud of these guys when I first did them. I loved how the washes looked!
       
      Cultist - Reaper Bones - 77351

      My goodness, I started to do detail with this guy! I'd actually discovered Reaper's forums with him, but I stayed just a lurker for a while.
       
      Andriessa, Female Wizard - Reaper Bones - 77386 OR 77381 (DDS2)

      I really spent a lot of time on her. I wanted to try and see just how detailed I could paint. 
       
      More Goblins - WizKids Deep Cuts - 72579

      More goblins.
       
      Black Bear (Companion Animals) - Reaper Bones - 77216

      The druid kept turning into a bear. It made me angry, but I still painted him up a mini.
       
      Phoenix  - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72563

      I just kind of stuck some red ink on this one.
       
      Deep Ones - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - SKU ????????? (None of my searches are finding these guys)

       
      Peryton - Reaper Bones - 77392

       I actually used reference photos for this guy!
       
      Spiders - Reaper Bones - 77025

      Mister Mouse is scared of spiders and hates these guys. He insists I keep them put away.
       
      Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03340

      Recognize her? She was the first mini I posted up on these forums! She was used as my mini for my player character, Ashes. She was also my first attempt at basing. Additionally, you might remember her being my avatar for a long while.
       
      Zombies - Reaper Bones - 77053, 77014

      I played with some special effects with these guys. I still love the results! 
       
      Skeletons - Reaper Bones - 77242, 77241, 77244, 77238, 77237

      So many skeletons! I also think I have the wrong sku for my spearman...
       
      Ghast - Reaper Bones - 77159

       
      Wraith - Reaper Bones - 77097

      I tried adding a tuft of grass to this guy, in the back.
       
      Plant Thing - Reaper Bones - ?????

      I got this from Stoneskull...don't know the actual SKU.
       
      Bear - Reaper Bones - ??????

      I have no idea the SKU on this bear - it came with Bones 3 core. He was my first attempt to paint for display, instead of tabletop.
       
      More Cultists and a Circle - Reaper Bones - 77351

      I tried to get a glowy effect on the circle...I still like the first cultist I did a little better...
       
      Tombstone - Reaper Bones - ?????

      From Bones 3 Graveyard
       
      Necromancer - Reaper Bones - 77283

      I hate the paint job I did on her...she's the last mini I painted using only Army Painter Paints...
       
      Level Up! - Reaper Learn to Paint Kit - 08907

      And so, I leveled up (I have no clue where the gnome went, and the pirate apparently needs a touch-up)
       
      Adventuring Kid - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03783

      And so, I tried to apply what I learned and also do NMM...this kid didn't turn out so great. But I tried!
       
      Hot Foot - Reaper ReaperCon 2017 Mousling -  01616

      My FIRST MOUSLING!!!! I'm still really happy about how the bubbling lava came out. Also my lesson in painting before assembly.
       
      Bandit - Reaper Bones - ?????
       
      And so, I went back and tried speed painting something...
       
      Lizardman Archer - Reaper Bones - 77425

      Speed painted to test Eldar colors...
       
      Wrapping Dragon - Reaper Special Edition - 05193

      I finally start to be getting shading and eyes! Yay!
       
      Christmas Speed Paints - Reaper - ???, 77436, 77435, 77433, 01552

      And so, I now speed paint at a much higher quality than I even slow painted at in the beginning.
       
      I feel like 2017 was great. 92 painted miniatures later, I think my skill has improved drastically. I hope my skill keeps improving in 2018!

      These are what I finished painting this year, a year that was somewhat abbreviated by world events. Really, this is what I painted in the last six months, since political dismay kept me from the miniatures table for approximately eight months after the last US Presidential election.
       
      This year I painted my first Reaper Warlord figures who were also my first oversized werewolves, 77754 the Rageclaw Slayer, and 77755, Aislinn, Shadow Tracker.
       
      Nearly everything I painted was for the White Wolf World of Darkness and Exalted.

      Here is what I painted in 2017.
      I had a lot of fun with the terrain/scenery pieces.
      Learned a lot from painting the bust and got crazy with my Lost World project.
      Also had a blast with the diorama challenge and Rainbow Dragon Challenge.
       
      Here is Glitterwolf's 2017.

      so 93 this year, one less than 2015, but 20 more than last year. 
      wierdly 3 large dragons were painted in each year three years.
      would have done less but went on a huge blitz of kingdom of death after getting the set in october. 
       
       

       
      Mostly Bones - I did count the smaller dracolisk as one of my three dragons, but I did remove legs and re-sculpt. 

       
      core villains from kingdom death - the Phoenix and final boss are not finished, and will take a while. 

       
      Survivors, starting four on the right, gradually gaining better weapons and armor.  
      the last one is built wearing armor made from the phoenix and antelope armor kits. 

       
      unfinshed things & 3d printed terrain.
