Just realized that I have a busy weekend coming up (my weekend starts on Thursday afternoon due to Veteran's Day).

 

Thursday is DnD.  Friday is a Mutant Cronicles one shot (maybe some board games before hand)

 

Saturday is a combo going away/reitement party for two fiends of mine.  There will be both smoked and fried turkeys and a roast pig.  I may be making 5 to 10 lbs of mashed potatoes to go with it.

Things suck today and now I am stuck on the couch. I should get up and have decent human food and make tea but the couch glued itself to my rump. My former roommate's dog is also keeping me company so that helps. But she's stuck on the couch so it isn't helping my motivation to get up. Damn these brain weasels.

That happened to me yesterday.  but it was medical.

My eyes hurt.  Everytime they had to focus on something nearby - pain, anytime they had to adjust to a change in light - pain. trying to read - pain.  painting was out of the question.  Even closing my eyes would sometimes hurt  Trying to use my brightly lit phone was agonizing.  Oddly sitting and staring at a fixed object (TV) was distracting and pain free.  Even if the lighting went from sunny fields to dark caves it was fine.  So I binged Stranger Things.  still 1 episode left in season 2. 

 

Doc says either Pink-eye or scratched Cornea.  - eye drops for pink eye are clearing it up nicely today.  (thank god)

*whispers in her ear* Then think about painting a negative dragon: switching out the highlights and shading so that it looks like the complete opposite.

Those who go out early know in their bones 
there will be no paradise or loves that bloom and die: 
they know they will be mired in numbers and laws,
in mindless games, in fruitless labors. 

The light is buried under chains and noises 
in the impudent challenge of rootless science. 
And crowds stagger sleeplessly through the boroughs 
as if they had just escaped a shipwreck of blood.

 

 

Ah.

 Feh.

 

Jack is disgruntled. It's late, he's tired, and he should be in bed, but he's desperately trying to find anything else to do instead. He's completely unmotivated to do any more adulting and get more done on stripping minis (and his hands hurt), but he knows there's not enough time to start doing anything else that he'd like to do... And I'm hungry, dammit. Obviously, when Jack is hungry and tired, he's a cranky, miserable bastard.

I think I'm going to go eat something and then go to bed.

Otherwise I might start posting poetry of my own, and that'd just scare people.

I ran out of Assassin's Creed, and I'm perpetually bored now. Blah.

 

 

I need this mini to:

*sigh* I don't even want to know what kind of electrical nightmare would cause the breaker for Mr. Thorne's office (the room directly below me) to blow when I restart my computer up in my studio. I /don't/.

Because if I knew, I'm pretty sure half my hair would turn white.

I forgot to feed the dogs until just now. I am a horrible father.

 

 

Also fully white-headed. It's not so bad. Embrace the voltage!

I hate transitions. The pagebreak was the greatest invention in literature.

 

The first sign was the stench of sulfur and rotting meat. Then out of the darkness loomed the great Wyrm, 73 ells in length and with an unguessable wingspan, it was clear that the party was doomed. Doomed!

Having slain the dragon, the Hobbit brewed tea as the rest of the party began to count the hoard.

Bb fife acquired.  Music enjoyed.  Slowly but surely moving out of the stage where I sound like a strangled cat.

 

While I suspect that you acquired a B-flat fife, and that's really very nice I'm sure, a BB fife would be awesome!

 

No one expects the assault of the wind section.

      ^^ So that's the link to the WIP thread for this guy.
       
      He did not turn out to be a fastish paint job. He turned into my experiment.
       
      I put more work into highlighting the hair than I usually do. I got his bald dome more shiny than I have for past skin tones. I've done bits of freehand before, but this is the first fabric pattern freehand I've done (turned out a bit thicker than I would have preferred, but I still like it). 
       
      First NMM for me ever. I may have been better off with a classic sword or straight line sort of thing, but ehh... this turned out okay for a first shot, I think. The axes took 3-4 hours 
       
      And for good measure, I scuffed up his boots in the "sand", and put a shadow of him on the sand. 
       
      I got my nice camera rolling, but not I am re-learning it. Got a diffused ring LED attached to it for lighting. Just a piece of gray-blue construction paper in the background. 
       
      Comments, critiques, shrieks of "what in the heck is this junk?!" all welcome!

      tl;dr:  I'm painting bunnies!! (and other critters)
       
      I'm finally wrapping up my painting projects left over from December, so I guess it is time to finally decide on some things to paint in 2017.
      One of my goals for this year is to actually play some of the games I've bought figs for.
      So far finding time to get a minis game going with the gaming group has been rather slow...been passing around the Frostgrave book since the fall, everyone seems interested, but haven't moved beyond that yet.
      So, moving on to my other potential person to play against, my wife. While she like playing games, so far she hasn't found time to read the quick start rules for CAV:SO I put on her phone last summer, and her Rach army remains unpainted.
      So perhaps something...cute and furry....
       
      Burrows and Badgers seems like a perfect fit, and I've been dying to start painting them.  I've been slowly reading through the rules (the only time I ever seem to find time to read these days is when I go to bed, but then reading rules makes me sleepy...(no Michael, it's not your writing, I have partially read CAV:SO, Counterblast, MERCS and Timewatch sitting beside the bed too  )).
      And the other night I showed her pics of all the figs from the first two kickstarters. And she seemed interested.But now the problem is she wants all my Bunnies....
      Also, all the figs are 1 piece, so we can play even before all the figs are painted (I know they won't roll as well, but it will help with learning the rules).
      And I get to paint all the awesome terrain Jo has made for B&B (and I may pull some out of the other Oathsworn boxes too).
      And as a bonus, if/when we get to playing Frostgrave, I'm making a warband out of B&B figs.
       
      So, I will dig out the figs and get a picture over the next few days, then get some figures prepped for painting.
       
      Now where to start??   Maybe rats.....I don't want to do the bunnies until I get a few under my belt...

      Hakon, Iconic Skald: 60182
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This was a commission piece and one of the fastest I've ever done. Hope you guys like it.
       

       

       
      Here is the WIP for this piece
    • By Arc 724
      60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This is another commission piece for me. The character in the Patherfinder game we are play is a Ranger who throws axes. He liked this figure so much he bought it on the spot! Said he wanted it to have a kind of coloration at Boba Fett. So I'm working from that, kind of.
       
       
       
      Edit: I sculpted the base my self. It's just a simple brick pattern.

      Hi again,
       
      still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail.  I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM.
       
      The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows.  Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
