    I held onto this model for a long time, a few years in hopes to get my skills up to the point of being happy with him. One of my favorite sculpts.

    This is maybe the 20th mini that I've ever painted, and my 4th mini after a 3 year hiatus. Staring at the close-up pictures is tough, because I see so many things I can improve. Nonetheless, I'm fairly proud of this one!

    Another Bones model. A little easier to work with than the water weird, plastic was thicker and more rigid except for the gates. Overall, I like this one. Comparison shot

    One of my recently finished miniatures, and my first attempt at doing some object source lighting. Truth be told this was all a bit of an experiment and as such the ghost was very rushed (She was 100% drybrushed), most of my time and effort went into the base and trying to pull off a convincing OSL glow effect. It is far from perfect, but for a first attempt I am fairly pleased with the result.

    Except for a very few small touch ups and a little touch up to the waterfall (which is a little more splash effect on the bottom, needs to go a little bit further) it's done. Took a little over 10 days I believe but I took my time and I'm happy with my results.

    On my quest for a Legions of the Dead full painted army for Saga : Age of Magic, I just finished : - a Behemoth (Colossal Skeleton from Reaper) - 2 flying creatures (skeleton demon from Ral Partha) - 2 quadrupede creatures (Skeletal War Dog and Handler from Ral Partha with Giant Skeleton Rats from Mantic) Next... Bowmen ?

    This is 02060: Onastaa, sculpted by Sandra Garrity. The WIP thread is over here. As I said in the WIP thread: First, the pictures: (click on the pictures for larger versions) The colors used were: (all Reaper paints) Skin: 09136 Walnut Brown, 09026 Violet Red, 09232 Bright Skin Shadow, 09068 Rosy Skin (midtone), 09688 Peppermint White, and 09061 Linen White Hair and staff: 09136 Walnut Brown, 09441 Ruddy Flesh, 09490 Bugbear Fur (midtone), 09075 Buckskin Pale, 09061 Linen White Robe: 09136 Walnut Brown, 09423 Styx Purple, 09419 Tropical Blue (midtone), 09078 Surf Aqua, 09061 Linen White Robe Trim: 09136 Walnut Brown, 09142 Stained Ivory, 09143 Yellowed Ivory (midtone), 09144 Creamy Ivory, 09061 Linen White Cloak: 09136 Walnut Brown, 09137 Blackened Brown, 09199 Russet Brown (midtone), 09200 Harvest Brown, 09201 Orange Brown, 09061 Linen White Staff and clasp NMM: 09136 Walnut Brown, 09138 Intense Brown, 09074 Palomino Gold (midtone), 09144 Creamy Ivory, 09061 Linen White, edged in 09039 Pure White Gems: 09136 Walnut Brown to 09039 Pure White, with various amounts of 09096 Clear Green mixed in. Lining and runes in robe trim: 09064 Brown Liner Credit where it's due: The core of her skin colors and using Surf Aqua to highlight the robe both came from Anne's Twitch streams for Reaper (the skin colors were from streams in December and I believe using Surf Aqua to highlight came from a stream in January or February). The colors for her hair and the gold NMM were matched against photo references (her hair colors were matched against a piece of art I purchased at the local anime convention years and years ago and a photograph in The Atlas of Beauty; the gold NMM colors were matched against a photograph of an Egyptian artifact covered in gold). The gold NMM didn't turn out well. It's a small area and I don't think it went deep enough into the shadows. I'm unhappy with the basing but I'm still trying to learn to deal with flocking sanely. I feel like it's the weakest point of the miniature. (Sure, the NMM failed, but it looks okay-ish as is. It's not metal but it looks fine. The flocking though...) Maybe I should focus on flocking/basing using simple tabletop paint jobs until I'm more comfortable with it. As always, constructive criticism and comments are welcome! I will not be doing any more work on this mini but I can always use advice for painting future minis. And I have another copy of her in my hoardcollection so I'll be painting her again in the future.

    This was a bones translucent blue model. Tried my best, but I find Bones just difficult to paint. Should have bought the metal one.

    Found the 3d model while browsing Pinterest and reached out to the designer and they sent me the file so I could have it printed

    I believe this came from my 1st reaper order, maybe about 6 years ago. Finally got around to painting him. I had a reason to paint with the witch in control for our next game session. I'll be taking down my website this year, it was fun, self indulgent, but too much work for little care. You can find a WIP of sorts there with the paints I used.

    My friend called me in a panic and shouted, “An evil wizard turned me into a tiny harp! I don’t know what to do!” Frantically, I drove all the way to his house only to find out…

    Day two in the tank factory..... My wife is till having a blast. All that neat duct taping is due to her. A break now for lunch and we are going for a drive later. Need to put in a small order with the lfgs which we will pick up as they are doing a free comic day promotion at the store, with parking lot delivers. I expect we will be back in the tank factory for a second shift today though.

    Painted this little fella up a few years back...before my skills became rusty. Now trying to get back into the game and learn new things outside of dry brushing. Either way, enjoy.

    Another favorite model of mine, one I saved for several years to finally paint. I have another Alligator for him to control, but could not wait to take a photo.

    Photography level up! Ok, admittedly the first one was far from ideal conditions (realized I forgot to take pictures when it was already at the show). The second is after 30 seconds with the little light box I just got. I know I have a ways to go, but it is so much better.

    My daughter painted this one up. Her first time doing lava and glow effects. Think it turned out really well.

    I started this little guy some years ago, but then I got stuck and he just set on my shelf of shame and stared at me (I had already painted the eyes). Now I finally finished him, so it's a collaboration of Younger Samedi and Not-So-Young-Anymore-Samedi. Funny thing is, I have no idea what colours Young Samedi used, I just remember mixing some greens and browns together for the skin. And of course my all-time favourite metallic: The copper of the old Reaper Pro Paint series. Young Samedi was a keyboard player, that's why he liked this mini so much - I mean, how many minis of keyboard players are there? Not-So-Young-Anymore-Samedi plays keyboard only very sporadically. But at least he finishes his painting projects now and then... So enjoy, C&C very welcome, as always!

    Here is the second member of the Tengu Trio: The Warrior, plus a picture of the brothers (sisters?!) adventuring together. To give me an idea of the colors I could use, I looked at pictures of the four heavenly kings often depicted in temples, who always have fierce expressions but are dressed quite colorful.

    I definitely have all the required components.... And it's not like there are no examples of tanks anywhere nearby.....a quick count shows 35 in various scales and levels of assembly......(but I can stop printing more any time I want)

    I want to say it's from the Rebellion game series, but I don't know what happened to the packaging or game cards that came with it right now. Finished up a couple more last night. First up is this creepy fungus from the Darkreach expansion in Bones 4. I decided it would make a good approximation of a Bleeding Tooth Fungus. One of my favorite finds when I'm out in the woods. One of my players has this odd phobia about mushrooms and I'm a big believer in exposure therapy. Not necessarily because I think it will do him any good, but I'll get a good laugh from it. And this is from the Chronoscope Expansion from the same kickstarter. I was feeling in the mood to paint something pink. I couldn't help but think of a Terry Pratchett quote while working on this. "Grand Viziers were always scheming megalomaniacs. It was probably in the job description: ‘Are you a devious, plotting, unreliable madman? Ah, good, then you can be my most trusted minister."

    NUDITY Model picture link: http://desireefultondesign.com/images/Harpy_AllSides_SM.jpg Painted a harpy up for practice an am pretty happy with the results. I decided to put her on a clear base to not distract from the model. Any critiques are appreciated!

    She got in today!!! Shesaid she waited for 45 mins, as there was 3 people ahead of her. We have 6 machines but only 3 are working (ie 1,3,5). She even said some guy gifted bags to people that were there, so she got a bag out of it. She said, total for everything was around $50 bucks, so hey at least it was worth waiting.

    Work halted for the evening. Unlike Jasper, Mrs. J likes being in pictures.... She's having a blast doing this. Crew compartment assembled. Turret base plate done. Angle for front armour established. Barrel test fitted. It will need to be cut down. I expect tomorrow we will get the turret built and the front armor slope determined and probably completed. we'll see if we get to tracks.....

    B:GCC - Mission 21 "A Golden Opportunity" has the heroes catch Deadpool Deathstroke mid-robbery as he attempts to steal a formula for kryptonite locked behind a door. I think my favorite color that I bought from Reaper is their Hazard Yellow. It slots in nicely between yellow and orange and works wonderfully in a lot of different situations. I think it is spot on for Deadpool Deathstroke. Riddler Goons. I like the color scheme, but I debated for a while if I should switch up the colors a little to make them easier to distinguish on the board. In the end, I decided against it in favor of the K.I.S.S. principle. If I play the game enough where it is a problem, I'll be happy. Goons with Sticks Goons with Guns

    My recent print. I got the image from Thingiverse. The file was designed by pollygrimmart. The details were a bit shallow so the face didn't turn out as I hoped it would, but for a table top mini I got for free, I am quite pleased with the final product! As usual, I really need to work on my photo skills.

    Between ice cream and whiskey, tonight, I chose the ice cream. Lost my afternoon to the US government, trying to figure out why Medicare is canceling part of my cancer-battling mother's coverage. Turns out she failed to pay bills that they never generated! They can't even explain what happened. We talked to them two or three times, kept get redirected elsewhere, SS office and insurers and retirement service and everyone anybody could think of to send us to, until someone at her prescription coverage provider's place finally figured out and explained what was going on. We had to talk the Medicare people through it but escalated it up to getting started toward a resolution. We think. It's not all settled yet but looks like it should be all right. They agree it's their fault, anyway. So. Hopefully. All the fingers cross and all that. Still, though. Ugh. Long day. Didn't get started on those stories but did have a nice read in the park. And a nice ride--nice sunny day for lowered windows and cranked-up punk rawk. Words and booze tomorrow, maybe.

    So, uh, dad surprised me with a package this week... Double surprise because of what was in it... Meade 400/60 f/6.7. Okay, it's a small and cute one, with an inexpensive manual mount, basic red dot sight, and basic 9mm and 25mm eyepieces, but... That's one lovely surprise to send. Getting it home was a tad awkward though, since, well, you try carrying a 3' wide 10lb box for twenty minutes. It's no 8" Celestron RASA, and it isn't an APO refractor, but hey, it'll at least let me and Rune see stuff, and that's what counts the most. Naturally, it's cloudy as all sin today, and it's tried raining a few times

    North has a Feel. It feels North. It's that way [points North]. Magnetoreception has been shown in some neurotypical people but has never been tested in autistics. Nothing fun is ever tested in autistics You'd find absurd data if you tested someone like me

    So... if we take up a collection to send you to Denton this fall where you take a good sniff of each attendee as they enter the building each day, do you think we could get ReaperCon uncancelled?

    I didn’t realize how fortunate we are. Our city collects recycling from the curbside the same as regular trash collection, except every two weeks instead of every week. And we have a big, trash-bin-sized blue bins to put it in. And they’re pretty decent about taking big piles of flattened cardboard boxes if we have more than will fit in the bin. And it’s still going on despite the pandemic lockdown. I stuck my head out to wave and yell Thanks last time the truck came by.

    So while Mrs. Hamster watched Mrs. America with her friends, I slapped some primer on a pair of maggotcrown ogre juggernauts, I spilled a bunch more than I needed onto my well pallet. I didn't have anything that I was planning on using that much stynylrez primer on... but my buckets of Bones are always at hand. Wanting something kinda big, I grabbed the appropriate bucket and pulled out the tree. Then the bear... I hadn't planned on working on either of these, but now that I've primed them, I kinda feel like I need to! D&D tonight was fun. The party is exploring some caves in the middle levels of Stonehell. Not too much treasure to be found, and a bunch of unpleasant beasties... So far only one party death, a woman at arms was swarmed by some rocky beetle things and turned into pulp. I think she had something like 4 or 5 HP and took 18 or 19 in one round. Also enjoyed a nice Allagash Black. I was really looking forward to ReaperCon this year. I thought I had a solid chance for Silver in Open with Kornovik. *sigh* Ah well... *Raises Glass* Here's to better days ahead. Here's to the future. Here's to my friends and loved ones staying safe, if not sane, in lock down. Here's to the digital age that allows us all to stay in touch. Cheers!

    I took second place in the regional art exhibition with my self portrait from last year. It's cool to be recognized, but I've already exhibited enough to know it's just the whim of the judge. I'm surprised I placed, as this judge was in love with 'tool marks' (exposed paint brush strokes, rough finishes, etc) and this was my most highly rendered piece. I think maybe because it looks like a photoreal piece until you really dial in and see how much abstraction I'm actually using (that was a major part of my study last year, sorry it doesn't show up in the low res online pic!). Anyway, my second portrait to collect some awards, which is pretty amazing. So of course I just signed up for a landscape class, where I know nothing at all :D

    I’m used to 100% whole wheat, and the no-boosters-added sourdough is a 6+ hour rise, but it still seemed to take a while longer. My favorite cereal is some ancient grains thing sold as “Heritage Flakes”, with quinoa, millet, spelt, and emmer wheat, but I don’t know that I can tease out the flavors from each other. The 50% spelt bread ended up looking pretty much like the 100% whole wheat version: It’s based off a King Arthur recipe, but I didn’t add oil, extra gluten, or more yeast, so the results are not their responsibility. It’s a very wet dough, but, as you can see, the crumb is reasonably risen. We had half of it with a vegetarian lentil soup for supper tonight.
