  1. I love Razig's army, but was never fond of Razig himself as a sculpt (either version) until last year when Bobby Jackson did his take on him... (I hope to get all the army together and get a shot of them tonight)

  2. A little present for my girlfriend for Valentine's Day, I painted up one of her favorite creature types! He is also my second entry in the theme category of the Winter Wonderland contest Overall, I LOVE the details on this little guy and I kind of want to get another to paint with some different colors. Maybe like a blue-ringed octopus! C&C welcome

  3. I don't normally paint this fast :). The Revenant as well as this guy have both been recently released from the Shelf of Shame after being partially completely for...a while. The Koralon are nasty critters in the same genus as the Aliens/Tyranids, hehe. As always C&C welcome!

It was a giant problem, when stripped down to its bones. But in the end the issue was cloudier than anticipated. The Auld Grump

  10. Heh heh- since it's Valentine's Day, here's a fun twist: I've decided it's time to let GW know my life is moving in a different direction. We've had good times, rough patches, makeup painting sessions, and spent lots of money trying to impress each other. It's just not working out. GW, I'm just not that into you. You've been such a good friend; been there for me when I needed elves and space marines in my life, but I just can't see this relationship going anywhere. I just don't feel like you listen to me anymore. I've changed over the years, and I just don't feel like you're willing to ch

Ordered new china cabinet so that current ' IKEA bookshelf aka makeshift china cabinet' can move to office/painting room to be used to hold Bones. Kitchen nook happy. Office happy. Bones soon to be happy. Wallet unhappy, but no one asked wallet's opinion anyway.

  13. Ive been painting up everyone's characters in the pathfinder game we are playing. I'm planing on surprising another one of my players with this. He started painting his own mini months ago, but has never finish it. I tried using some of the same colors that he was using. Mostly it was the yellow cloak, since he is a follower of sarenrae.

  17. And that's why I like to stick close to friendly sites like this one. My husband has a certain incredulity towards behavior such as you describe. He wonders how gamers like that ever meet girls. See, he was a civilised roleplaying gamer and that's how we met. :D

  19. One hundred years ago this year, in 1913, science fiction author H.G. Wells wrote Little Wars: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books, which was the beginning of modern tabletop wargaming. So happy 100th anniversary to the hobby. The entire book is available free on Project Gutenberg (bless 'em): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/3691/3691-h/3691-h.htm

  25. Ponygeist: Grave Danger Fun with back-lighting! This is another one of the Wave 4 blind-bag ponies -- #8 "Merry May (Crystal)" -- that I drafted into the ponygeist encounter. Since it was rearing up, I decided to make a little prop to add to the base: a gravestone. (Not that it would make much sense in a dungeon, but ... eh, it's just base decoration!) The tombstone is made with a bit of epoxy putty; I just flattened it against my worktable and carved in the horseshoe and the "R.I.P."

  27. Bogey Horde: I had a curious semi-nightmare a few weeks ago: I suddenly realize that I've slept late, and it's the weekend, and I have a game to run, and I cannot find ANY of my monster miniatures, and PLAYERS ARE ON THE WAY RIGHT NOW. So, desperate to fix the situation, I dig through a junk drawer and find some old tumbled stones -- and I paint eyes on them. Tada! Rock monsters. Or "Pet Rocks." Once I woke up, however, I thought -- hey, not a half-bad idea! Rather than going with rocks, though (I don't actually HAVE any tumbled rocks in a junk drawer -- it was just a dream!), I

  28. Here's my Bones Ogre Chieftain. I'm quite happy with how he came out. I had a struggle to keep him down to only 5 lunches to finish. He's big, and he has wonderful details. Not spending time on too many details was tough. I went with a heavier coat of Quickshade on this guy. He has a lot of flesh and I wanted to get a good amount of contrast. Also, I though the blueish I'd used on his wraps might be a little bright (I still think it is) so I wanted to dirty it up some. That went a little too well as I think a drop must have seeped down his right leg after I thought it wa

  29. well, I sure won't have time for three entries, as I've planned, but I should have a simple single mini entry within few days, and decorative base entry is WIP and I hope to have it finished by the deadline. as for bases - well, 2 basing-based (pun intended) categories indeed seem like an overkill, but IMO basing should be the integral part of the voting/judging. this is not a painting contest, it's a miniature painting contest, and bases comprise very important aspect of our hobby. Not the most important of course, but still... Bases are there to put your miniature into a context, to tel

  30. I've been chipping away at all this stonework... apologies for the sub par photography. On the platform side I carved a rough texture and applied some weldbond/woodfiller mix on the front as well as the back. I glued up a few styrofoam strips on the base of the diorama. This will provide stability since the foamcore substrate isn't perfectly flat and as a result is slightly tippy. I plan on carving it up to resemble the leading edge of the walI and coating it with more of my homemade texture paste. It also serves as a frame and will help to unify the overall look of the terrain- if the two

  31. I use dental stone with my molds - I have several different types of floor tiles, so I can vary the bases. When I couldn't find anywhere that sold dental stone in my area without paying significant shipping charges, I asked my dental clinic if they could help out. They were quite excited about the whole thing and now provide me with dental stone at their cost (Die Keen at just under $100 for a 50lb box), as long as I showed them the first building that I made with it (done). I also get debubblizer from them. They even gave me a vibrating table as a gift when they were cleaning out thei

  32. I have some Hirst arts floor tile moulds. 1" square for an OK cobblestone base, ready textured. Now, between the mould and a bucket of proper plaster it'll cost more than a plain plastic square, but much less than even a basic scenic base, spread across 200 miniatures! http://www.hirstarts.com/molds/moldsfloor.html $10 for 7lb of plaster, $30 for the mould. Divided by 200 = 20c per base. If you want two styles of base, 35c. They are probably twice as thick as a normal base. I've used them on metal Reptus with acceptable results, I think some more basing material to contrast the lar

  38. For dioramas, sure. And I like the very best display bases. But I find most basing detracts from the mini because I played AD&D for years with minis that had an integrated base. A simple red or grey oval base was the norm. The hordes that now sit on poorly-mown grass thanks to the GW effect, and slott-basing in general, is something people have become accustomed to and new painters/gamers expect. I will begrudgingly try to learn basing, because at some point the hobby demands it despite what I may or may not prefer. And that means a long period of ruining perfectly good paint jobs with

  39. Paint/Photo: Myself Model: 77029: Silverhorn, Unicorn by Reaper Miniatures [link] Notes: My step-daughter has been depressed lately and I picked this up for her in hopes it would cheer her up. She promptly asked me to paint it for her. I've never painted anything intentionally girly before so I was delighted to give it a shot. There are 24 different colors of paint I used on this, the most I've ever used on a single miniatures. I added the sparkles by blowing Pearl Ex Macropear onto the model immediately after spraying it with Dullcoat. The rhinestones are 2mm. I got those at Michael's nea

  40. They're probably hoping if they lay low for a bit everyone will forget about it and they can return to business as usual. How successful they are with that really just depends on how determined their customers are about not going back to them. A fair number of people said they were through with them, but if their next spiffy product comes out and they all just go running back to GW, GW wins in the end. I've never been impressed, even less so once I actually got a set of their stuff (LotR goblins for Christmas, wow, crappy quality). For the price they sell their minis at it ought to be waaa

  46. Yep. Delicious frosting (do not actually attempt to eat delicious frosting, it's not really delicious) has occured for me under the following circumstances: 1. Too hot 2. Too cold 3. Too humid 4. Spray can too far from mini 5. Spray can too close to mini 6. Undersealer not quite fully dry 7. Dullcote just felt like it I only spray now when I can get outside, it's not raining, it's not humid, it's about 18-24 degrees C, it's not windy, there's no dust. This works out to less than ten good days a year for it. I save my minis up for The Great Coating. That's with Testo

  49. COLTERGEISTS: This weekend, Wendy and I went on a pony-hunt at some local stores; only the local Toys 'R' Us and Target actually had any of the Mystery Pack or "blind bag" ponies -- and at that, they only had the Wave 4 ("Crystal Kingdom") pony toys. Armed with a parts-number guide from a pony wiki, I checked the embossed numbers stamped into the bag spine, in order to identify the ponies within. I went for all the "guy ponies" I could find: Royal Riff (US #80266), Twilight Sky (US #81276), and Mosely Orange (US #82206). I HAD BEEN WARNED that the glitter paint wouldn't be condu
