Just kidding, was kinda of bored and thought this might lighten my mood up a bit. 

I'm making good progress on my exchange mini and expect to have it done and mailed out in a week or two.

Box from Reaper finally arrived.  Got delayed most of an extra week by some bad weather.

Now to find some time to paint. Looks like I'll be pulling some chauffeur duty for the next while.  Kid had to break his right foot, of course...

UPDATE! I screwed up my shoulder Tuesday by holding a light fixture to a ceiling fan so my dad could put screws in it. I had finally decided on a mini and was planning on getting serious progress on it! Now my shoulder feels like it has shards of glass all through it! This is also my painting arm so nothing can happen until it feels better. just hsving it in a position to type is excruciating. might also impact BoGW being sent this week.

I got my Minis from my painter today! A really cool "warforged" Battleguard Golem and a nice Gnome Wizard or Sorcerer! Both seem to be metal judging from the weight. And quite well painted too! I'll post pictures once I have taken them. Also, not 100% sure who sent it but I have my suspisions.

If you are able, you may want to get your neck checked out, you may have some impingement in there from the symptoms.

And, speaking from experience, most pain pills can't do much to touch nerve pain.

Hope you feel better soon.

Nice @Generic Fighter those are beautiful minis! Sucks about your shoulder, def agree with getting neck checked. If you can, you might get also into a chiro. My chiro has helped my neck/shoulder pain immensely. Good luck in any case!

 

I finally ordered my mini(s) >< I thought I'd done so earlier, and apparently hadn't actually hit the confirm sigh. But in any case, work will start shortly!

(Can't believe some people are done already! sheesh)

I just need to finish up the base. Mine will most likely be mailed on Monday. I'll update when I send it out.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

      Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 
       
      What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
       
      Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
       
      http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/
       
      If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.

      well, he finally made it out of the house!  My exchange is officially in the mail.
       
      My exchange partner had asked for something futuristic and something either goofy or scary, so of course I went with ludicrous.  What do you give the giant demonic poisonous spider that has it all?  high tech lasers and missile launchers!  I have been building and painting some of my eldar pieces and decided that they could use a mascot.
       
      As for things I haven't done in a while.  I have started to play with decals again as a way of adding some interest to my larger grav tanks and space ships so I thought I would add a few here for fun.
       
      The weapons pack is removable if my partner wants to use him as a basic giant spider (actually I got a few complaints from the arachnid union when we discussed permanent attachment...)  there are to pointy pins that attach the weapons pack to the back of the spider (bones material does have its uses.
       
      So here is the Mark I demonic assault spider.  I hope everyone enjoys him!

      So, I got SGHawkins for my Secret Sophie. She said she would be starting Curse of Strahd soon, so I made Strahd...

       
      Happy Vampire is Happy!
       

       
      Also, i did a couple "Spell Effects" like this Dancing Magma Sword!
       

       

       
      And a pair of the new WizKids unpainted minis. I chose the Dragonborn female Fighters set because Dragonborn are hard to find equivilents for outside the official minis and I wanted to try out painting a few of them for future referance. I really like the effect I made with the first's Fire Sword. The mini's Fire sword is made from clear plastic so I used Tamiya Clear "Paint" to shade it and a little bit of Sword steel paint to make it look like the sword is on fire but that it still is metal underneeth.
       

       

       
      The second Dragonborn was a challenge from SGHawkins to "Try something new" so, I tried Non-Metalic Metal! I used the Copper/Bronze triad from the Bones 3 Kickstarter to attempt it. It came out okay I think, but I can do better in the future. Also, had fun with the Fire and Ice Axes.
       
      SGHawkins, please post pictures of the items I included too. i did not get to take any pictures of the gifts as I was ill until yesterday evening.
