Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together. It is popular in many heraldic devices.
I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim. The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct. Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM. I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece. I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better. But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM: Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line? I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
Finally, one additional comment.
I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
Twilight Tales is a supplement for the non-violent storytelling game, Golden Sky Stories. I'm posting it here for families and anime fans looking for a non-violent RPG for their friends and children. If you're new to GSS, there's the $20 PDF level, which includes the core book.

I have a soft spot for Traveller deck plans, and this set reminds me of the old Azhanti High Lightning box set which was incredibly useful.
Welcome to the Element family of cruisers, one of the mainstays of the Imperial Navy and a common sight throughout the Third Imperium and beyond.
This Kickstarter project is to create a brand new box set for the Traveller roleplaying game, detailing the three main classes of cruiser within the Element cruiser family, together with 10 massive double-sided blueprints that will allow you walk through each deck of the ships as if you were there...
You can download preview PDFs showing some of the content right here:
Excerpt from Handbook
Fore Section Blueprint
The Element Cruiser Ship Builder's Blueprints box set will contain:
Ten gigantic (28" x 40") two-sided, full colour blueprints, laying out every deck of the ship. One full colour, 64 page book covering the three main cruisers of the Element family, along with full High Guard game rules and optional ship equipment. Serving On Board A Cruiser
We have done deck plans for every ship covered in this edition of Traveller, but we have seen a chance to really knock the ball out of the park and 'super detail' one of the largest ships in the Imperial Navy.
Each blueprint has been meticulously worked upon, and includes revisions and optional equipment, allowing you to tailor your own Element cruiser to specific mission roles.
The accompanying book sets the scene for cruisers and how they are used in Charted Space in general and the Imperial Navy in particular, then follows the design process of the Element family, from initial navy specification to maiden voyage.
The Element cruisers have a highly flexible 'pod' system that allows them to be configured for specific mission roles, and we have covered them in this book - from the 'standard' missile pod fit most commonly used on these ships, to long-ranged strike craft, light carriers, troop transports, and orbital assault ships, all are possible with the Element cruisers and have been included.
This has necessitated the introduction of an expansion to High Guard, detailing the new ship options now available.
However, this box set is about more than the hardware, and the duties of each individual crew member are examined, along with their integration into the full complement of the ship, commanding officers and security access.
We have gone into a lot of detail with these ships, in the handbook as well as the blueprints themselves!
