    This is a bust of Rear Admiral John Adophus Dahlgren, United States Navy officer during the Civil War who initiated major advances in gunnery, as founder of the U.S. Navy's Ordnance Department. It is a digital print of a digital scan of the bronze bust displayed at the Main Gate of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren, VA. The bust is sculpted by Theodore Augustus Mills (1839-1916). The digital print is about 2 inches tall. Dahlgren was of Swedish descent, with fair hair and blue eyes, though officers at his time used boot black to darken their hair. He had a small scar on his forehead.

    No painting time yesterday, took a basic drawing class. I want to start branching out into 2D painting, and I'm starting with the fundamentals of pencil sketching. It's going to be a loooong hike. On the other hand, I was happy that my still lifes were turning out better than the gallery owners because she was drawing the shapes as she learned in school and I was drawing the lumpy, misshapen versions on the table! Anyway. This afternoon was paint time! I made some decent progress on El Deadpimp, and check out the schnazzy leopard print on his pimp coat! Yeeeah! Now on to the metals and final details. To be continued...

    It took forever, but I'm finally ready to call this guy done! Originally my plan had been to finish him in time for last year's Giants contest, but well, he sat neglected for a month or two as the holidays were super busy. This was the largest most involved figure I've ever painted. He was a real challenge, in many different ways. From the endless teeth and bones to paint, to fighting with the snow to get it looking how I wanted, to even photographing him at the end. A big thanks to Michael Proctor for his painted versions, as they were a huge inspiration and helped me sort through all of the details on this guy. If you're curious, I did do a sporatic WIP for this figure here. I wasn't very good at keeping it updated though. I did take notes on the colors I used, so if you're curious about anything, feel free to ask!

    So here is what NightyKnight (my oldest son) and I took: I took: - Echidnox - The Magic the Gathering Basilisk - A bones goblin - Blue Moon Alchemist Lab - The Spartacus bottle - Candy - Chains (some of which may be making an appearance in a mini I'm sculpting right now) NightyKnight took: - 2 Rohirrim - Urk-hai pike soldiers - Bones Mummy - Bacon flavored cocoa I'm still working on what I am adding to the box and have to find time to paint the good knight. NightyKnight came up with a great addition though, but...no spoilers. Andy

    Wait, now you're a tiger, too? Nah. It's just that I am so awesome and lovable and huggable that women tend to throw themselves at me. Sometimes with far more force than needed edit: come to think of it, often with more force than is needed...I wonder why that is?

    Hey, Jason - what's the name of that building with the ship superstructure on top of it? Is it across from the James Fenimore Cooper rest stop on the Turnpike? Unless there's two of them, I've just spotted it... Also, have arrived in Jersey. Another thirty or so miles to go, stopping to top up the fuel tanks.

    USS RANCOCAS... CSEDS. Duh.. The service/employee entrance to the rest stop is right across the street from the place. I worked there for nine years, and forgot that since I left....ROFL. You are most correct... and 1.99 cents a gallon can't be sneezed at as far as gas prices. (more on the turnpike I am sure). Welcome to the land of NO you may NOT fill up your own car tank with Gas. No self service !

    Day 5: Fields with a narrow dirt path quickly turned into dense overgrown forest. Briars bramles and fallen trees lay scattered among the dense vegetation here. "Take the road less traveled they said. It'll be fun they said." Some ways into the forest he spotted a spheroid object covered in scales. "Is this a dragon's egg?" He looked around, and up, seeing no indication of a parent anywhere, picked it up and carried it onward in his bag. "Wonder if it's a night fury egg..." Should have stopped at 5, did 7 sets...ugh..

    Well to be fair, it has a lot to do with the tone of the writer who summarized those accident reports for the weekly safety message. And it looks like any electrical work is on hold until I locate my wire strippers. They appear to have walked off again. Just wave some bills in the air, they will show up.

    Just went for a walk with the hubs up and down some fun hills. I am starting over at day 1 with him. First day will be Monday so I will be lagging behind the rest of the party. Guess that makes me Gollum... :)

    Trying to finish up Deacon Leodegarius. And by "finishing up" I mean trying to paint his flesh, entire noggin', that glowy crystal thing he's holding, aaand the freehand embroidery on his stole. I think the freehand is gonna really test my resolve.

    So my payment got denied because w/ the new payment processing, my credit card was suspicious of a charge coming from a company in the UK. Glad they got good protection, but gosh are those payment reminders annoying. It's like at the top of every page, and I tried to resubmit the payment twice, but of course it wasn't going through. They didn't call me until this morning though. I would have called earlier... but umm... reasons. Husband reasons.

    Mine is long but mainly I threw in the Bones 2 stuff I didn't have already in metal. Heck being able to see the figures @ retail is exciting for me these days since all of my Reaper purchases are made online.

    It might not have been his intention when he first started the project, but I have no doubt it is his intentions now. If it was only because of the high shipping cost (which I would understand) then why isn't he letting people pay for the shipping so they can get their rewards. He said it was because of the refunds. But that is bull. How is it impossible for him to offer one person a refund while letting another instead pay for the shipping to get their items mailed to them. Or.......he could actually not have any maps whatsoever and have just pocketed $15k..... That is possible I guess, but he actually has posted pictures of the maps in the crate they came in. I mean I guess he could have done some really sleazy stuff, but I doubt it. I feel that he was told that he could make way more money selling the maps instead of sending them to the backers.

    If he'd allow for people to pay for shipping, then I'd be on his side here. But telling us that we can't do that and that he will refund us when he can, he's now in scam territory whether or not it was his plan at the beginning or not, that's how I now feel.

    The road had evened out at last. Inarah walked on, enjoying the late afternoon sun. Her mind drifted like the wind in the trees. Then from up ahead a shout brought her to attention. Was that a cry for help? A scream? She lifted her legs and hurried along as fast as she could. Nearly out of breath she arrived at a crossroads, and it was clear from the churned mud that something had happened. She looked around but saw no one. A splash of blood on the ground caught her eye, someone had been wounded, but where were they now? "Hello?" she called, waving her arms wildly in the air. "Is anyone here?" And then, panting, thinking that maybe drawing attention to herself might not be a good idea, she dropped her packs and sat on a log by the side of the road, to ponder the situation. Day Two: Stranger at the Crossroads 15 minute walk 4 sets of 40 high knees 3 sets of 40 arm circles 1 set arms w/weights Inarah's revitalizing potion, good for when your legs feel wobbly and you just want to fall over: chocolate milk. http://www.utexas.edu/news/2011/06/22/milk_studies/

    I might do that, but the call already went through and its being replaced as their computer said it failed. It is still under warranty so we will see what happens. If it behaves though I will be grateful

    Hmm... almost like he knew to wait till at least a year passed so there would be little we the backers could do in terms of charge backs on it. Yup, and by promising to refund he covers his butt with them too. It's just totally f'd up. I'm not happy about how he handled the whole thing. I'll never back a project he's involved in or visit his webstore. He's blacklisted for me.

    Yeah, I'm contacting my credit card company I think, though it's been over a year since the charge occurred so I'm not sure if they'll do anything.

    @Flamehawke, I used to have issues with my internet misbehaving during spring and fall because the wiring was degrading and temperature fluctuations messed with it. Perhaps track it for a few days?

    You know I would be somewhat ok with it if he was never able to get the maps made. But he actually has the maps in hand, supposedly already in tubes. But he refuses to send them to us, he says its because of the cost of shipping, but he also said we couldn't pay extra to have our shipments sent to us. He just wanted us to pay for products for him to sell somewhere else. He says he will give refunds, but I would be really surprised if that ever happens.

    Remember, I can be wrong... It is an unreleased Reaper piece. It most likely did not have packaging.

    Since I won't be finishing anything else this month it's time for a look back: Bugbears - 4 warriors completed & I ended up going back and painting Kegg earlier this week. Stone Giant - I got him based and his skin basecoated before I got bored with him. He went on the shelf, but I painted five mummies instead so it was still productive. Another large figure - Started on 54mm Freya yesterday, but she won't be finished until sometime next month.

    I will certainly have to give it a try. Might even brake out my good camera for photographs if I get to that point. So many possibilities.
