  1. I enjoy painting minis as something they're not intended to be, so when MS put up a contest to come up with a character...who better than Deadpool? In one issue, he appears in the 70s to team up with Power Man and Iron Fist and of course uses this opportunity to go 'incognito' as a pimp... I added a couple katanas from 02455: Weapon Pack IV by Werner Klocke (one graciously donated by Kuro, thanks!) and some GS to add in folds where they entered his coat. The base is also scratch made from styrene and GS. This one was a lot of fun to paint, which I needed given the past coupl

  2. I'm putting together a Lovecraftian themes group for a game and have been painting some Bathalians. Here are two Primarchs, an Exarch, a Centurion, and a Hound of Tindalos. One of the Primarchs is metal and the other is Bones. Can you tell which? I used these to experiment with new washes and colors I rarely use. I still have a handful of Kulathi to paint to round out the group. Here they are with Cthulhu.

  3. At the suggestion of Adrift and Metalchaos I present you with the WIP of transforming my Game Room. The costs of the endeavor were a Christmas present from my wife. My wife was very understanding during the process and there were instances where we learned to communicate with each other better. I know that we are closer because of this project. This will be a lengthy post as the project is complete. It start in late October with the gutting of my old room, that had been used as a interim bedroom prior to our son heading to college and ended with the christening of the room on Good Friday

  5. Thanks again! Some specific responses: @aku-chan (#21): The pattern looks especially complex in the original art, but I boiled it down to pairs of diagonal lines (a group of 3 in the original art), filled in with squares/diamonds. @ShadowRaven (#26): ... maybe a few more milliSchuberts! @Arydis (#27): No, I don't have any WIPs of my sculpting. Good idea. @haldir (#28): You probably missed her because there wasn't a painted version in the online store/gallery. I'm just getting around to painting her now.... The next step of the WIP: Lining, refining, and otherwis

  6. So, this is a rather big project for me. been in the planning stage for a long time now. Almost afraid to start.. I am not much fan of the egyptian parts of the warhammer undead armies, and decided I want to try having a more gothic undead army, which means creating my own stuff to proxy. I got a little carried away, and decided to make all of this into a little diorama. Ordered a ton of bits and pieces, and had to pay through the nose in government custom fees.. but what can you do? :D Anyway, here is a little test of how things will be: So far it consists of: 2

  7. After taking care of the four bugbear grunts last month I had just enough energy to paint one of the bugbear heroes. They were blue so Kegg is green, which should help differentiate him on the tabletop. It's unfortunately not my best photography effort, but you get the idea.

  8. almost done! Also because small underground mammals are adorable... So sure... they're not directly related to the golf theme... except maybe in Caddyshack... Although going with the whole Scottish theme, these are sort of modeled after Orkney voles! They were fun to paint and added some fun to the otherwise blank spots on the base.

  9. This is the second of the Galeforce 9 dragon cultists from this resin set that I've painted, for use in the Tyranny of Dragons/Hoard of the Dragon Queen/Rise of Tiamat adventure path I've been running for my 5th Edition D&D players. This is Talis the White. The last couple of photos show her next to Rezmir the Black, the first cultist I painted from the set. I'm about half way done with the last two from the set, so onwards I paint! I think my painting, but not my photography skills, are improving. Talis' armor was done with blues and whites for a NMM bluish metallic armor look. I w

  10. Well, I've been somewhat busy this week and haven't made as much progress as I'd like, but I did finally sit down today and do the conversion work on our violin player! After the usual removal of the broccoli base, I also removed her hands and staff to make way for her new hands. Now, I've tried sculpting hands before with limited (very limited) success, so I thought I'd try to use some copper wire as an armature of sorts. That helped immensely, but I still feel like I didn't quite nail the hands. They seem a little too large, and I know the relative finger lengths are not spot on. That b

  13. I hadn't planned on finishing this Miniature today. I just couldn't put it down ! That's an endorsement of a great sculpt. Svartulf came alive in my hands in a sense. Once I started I just kept on wanting to uncover what the sculpt was about, this morning I realized I was done, and started the basing. I placed him inside a circular coffee filter when I started gluing components on the base. When it came to the black filter material, I was able to pour it on, push it down, and move it as needed using the paper filter. When done I used a "Proxa brush to remove excess, and then dump th

  14. Hi there! This is Kat, from Hasslefree Miniatures. My intention for her is to use her as the pilot of a TAG, a powered armour combat mecha for the Game Infinity. This is my rendition of the Szalamandra TAG (WIP but 90% there): So color scheme is defined as Black, White and Red (the three easiest colors to paint). As a break from painting so much armor, I started with her face and skin. I am for once happy with the closeup! I also tried to push myself here, as always, to do some research, chose my paints, and do a good paintjob:

  15. Here's this weekend's work. I started this "Stone Lurker" yesterday and finished him up earlier. When assembling it I had some issues trying to get all the tentacles to fit in a slot. While you can tell that each join is uniquely shaped, the soft detail and mold lines made it so they didn't match up that well. I broke down and checked the gallery, but then I noticed that the stone lurker was also pictured on the core set box. They aren't put together the same way so I don't feel too bad about having issues myself. What's that? Hunting adventurers is just a side job? You wor

  18. @Cassu (#37): Thanks. I'm mostly following the colors from the 2-D painting, but tweaking slightly (lighter or darker, more or less saturated, pushing the hue a bit, etc.) to fit my ideas about color composition for 3-D miniatures. @Sanael (#38): Thanks, that was a basecoat in blue(-gray), and patterning in red. I saw the pattern more as "red lines on blue". Wayne Reynolds comes up with a lot of interesting (and intricate) patterns and freehand for his character designs. @DixonGrfx (#39): This is a master, i.e. first-generation copy of my original sculpt.

  19. Battle damage done, I consider this mostly finished. Missing yet: - Liquid slushing in the flamethrower containers (pending I see inclination in the final base). Because of the pictures: - Touching up metals in general, - Adding more bright purple to the flamethrower end, I just didn't have it on hand and the mix was too dark apparently. Not 100% happy with the weathering. But well, it is what it is, I need to call it done at some point. Pics: I am quite happy on the new freehands, on the vertical fin (the "slit" on the top is just paint!) and the Nomad

  23. My Hasselfree stuff came!!! Whoo! Now, if I can buckle down and work, I might actually finish almost everything on my list! I've got my little student basing kits started and stuffed full of goodies. I even broke down and ordered little steampunk watch parts I'd been eying since I can give some away and therefore justify their purchase to add to my own collection! Yippee! I spent this morning trying to finish my golfer and design a base for Artemis. Soon!!

  32. Liquid Soaps do a good job bringing down a wasp and are less toxic to you. Or pets. Just examples. Your favorite brand of dollar store cleaner will work... Any spray bottle soap that hits a wasp will cause its wings to rumple, it falls, give it another good blast at the crash site, then crush at your leisure. For insects liquid surfactant soaps are just bad.

The audience consisted of: DOC: Your humble narrator, and veteran of many midnight showings of RH; even played the Meat Loaf role in one live show. MAX: Gorilla's roommate, and veteran of many midnight shows. GORILLA: Lunatic, general fan of anarchy, and recent enthusiastic RH convert. GG: Gorilla's girlfriend, never saw the movie before.

  38. As long as they're not mutated by radiation, you should be fine. My parents' house once had a beehive in the roof and the bees were coming through the ceiling in the spare room upstairs. So the spare room had to be shut up for a while, but when you walked past the door you could hear the buzzing and it was quite unsettling. There were so many bee corpses all over the room when we opened it up. Ahhh fall out new Vegas. So true. I don't like buzzing. I don't like stinging things. I'm deathly allergic to bees and wasps o_o I tried to be brave for a good two minutes though. (I wasn't w

  42. One more aside: Here are some of those E- range elves and goblins in action a couple of years ago, in the Scuffle at the Elven Tower... There's also a Prince August home cast orc, and a later Ral Partha Cyclops-kin involved. Here's a view of the whole table, with my sons in command of the forces. I had recently acquired a Gale Force 9 tower and wanted to see it in action. The whole thing is being played with the Heritage Knights and Magick rules, which is very suitable for small actions on a 3x3 cloth.

The rocks are foam carved as well, they were really hard getting the strata carved to look convincing, but I think it looks nice. This section of the city is coming along well!!

  47. When I decided to enter the Painting Excuses contest I thought about painting Kyrie as Little Red Riding Hood (Pingo made mention of it when she came out and the idea has been rattling in my head ever since). But as I prep-ed her, it occurred to me that it would take very little to turn her into a barbarian version of Princess Mononoke. I mean, wolf cape! So I filled out her skirt with green stuff and covered the wolf face with a round blob to make the mask. I ended up wishing I had had made the mask bigger though. I used the rosy skin triad on her, blackened brown, shield brown, ginge
