    Bathory - I saw those photos! They look amazing I've been rereading through everyone's acquisitions because I have a package waiting at home and I don't know what it is!! I need to see what cool stuff people got! I put in an order from Banshee, but I don't know if I was selected. I also have a backorder of a ShadowCrafter mini from FantasticCourses, but I don't know when that's coming in either! Suspense!! During my agonizing wait, I'll post what I got at PAX South! (You've seen this already if we're friends on FB) Spoilered each photo because I feel slightly guilty about spam. Our badges had little invaders on it under blacklight! I want to get a blacklight in a little shadow box for my badges. 2 Zelda Posters! Majora's Mask map and a pretty Ocarina of Time one. I think of the title screen when I see it. All the loots:

    I approve of these acquisitions... they are very gooooood. I also approve. Very nice. And you never know, you might find busts are the greatest things in the world to paint. In other news. Shadowcrafters miniatures emailed right after I ordered asking if I wanted the assassin sent or if I wanted to wait until the oos Huntress was in before shipping. I chose to wait until the huntress was in to save them some shipping costs. Well, I decided I really did want that Raven and sword so I emailed them before I ordered to ask if they could hold the Raven and sword and just ship it all together. They emailed me back and told me not to order the Raven and sword, they would send it to me for free for waiting so long. How nice is that!? So nice! Moral of the story. Buy something from Shadowcrafters miniatures, they are good people.

    Kabuki Models order made for the new 75mm Ky-Ra and the female vampire bust. I am not much of a bust fan, but dammit it was a vampire and I was ordering from them anyways....

    My work has a board of directors above me. Except I am genuinely the most boring person they have ever met. So they leave me alone. I'm about three steps from being Milton from Office Space. Also, last week a co-worker stole my stapler again.

    Yeesh. I work for Al, who works for Jeff, who works for Scott, who works for Mark, who works for Joel, who works for George. George is the CEO. We're a little place! I count myself pretty lucky. My first yearly review is in 2 weeks.... So I count myself pretty freakin' nervous too. I mean, *I* know I'm awesome, but do they know that?

    Was it a Red Swingline Stapler? Did you use it to collate your TPS reports?I actually own a red Swingline stapler. Amusingly, Swingline didn't make red staplers until Office Space came out (the prop department painted the one in the movie). Swingline got so many requests for red staplers after Office Space came out that they added them to the inventory.

    I may currently have a bust on my desk, partially painted, that has been repainted about 3 times. Not on my list of favorites to be honest. There are too many companies with cool stuff I want to buy....

    This is how I see figures all the time. I reckon it isn't over-analysis if I'm simply pointing out the obvious.

    The reason she works so well and looks so tough is she has got the posture Renaissance theoreticians called "contrapposto", where the weight of the body is on one leg, tilting the hips one way, and the torso tilts the other way. She has it as a side effect of her original pose, where her right arm was lifted. Her torso then stretched up to support it. With a lowered arm her torso's tilt looks like a shoulder-rolling swagger. It is extremely effective at conveying attitude. I'd like to see a whole party of adventurers sculpted like this. That swagger is the attitude most of my players would have at the start of a new adventure back when I was DMing regularly. I'd also like to see a whole party of adventurers in a running for their lives fleeing in terror mode. That's how many of the previously mentioned adventures ended.

    I don't repaint. If it doesn't turn out like I want, I just rush to finish it and move on, though there are a couple partially finished minis that have built up over the 3 years (!!) I've been painting.

    I am pretty much the opposite of the normal guy. Im the one In the back office with all the weird stuff on his desk who people keep around not because I look pretty or work normally but because I keep a lot of stuff running and occasionally solve problems that have been bothering people for years by saying "couldn't we just..." I don't get invited to many upper management company functions though

    That's so awesome!!! I really loved a lot of the things they had, but I really had to just stop with the Huntress! I'm thankful for the Enabler, I'm a huge sucker for big cats/wolves and elves I would have been so sad to miss her!

    My review is sometime in the next week, unless we already had it and I didn't notice... Been here 13 years now working with the same people, the review is HR paperwork. you either pulled the corporate pants out of the fire or you got a meets. I fully expect a meets and will probably get it. the rest is just a huge amount of wasted paperwork. Good luck to those with chances of mobility or who are still new. I think you are all wonderful at what you do (which is paint minis, I mean isn't that everyone's primary job )

    With Bones 3 incoming? Ha! My tally is going to be anything but reasonable anyway... the question is, am I willing to spare $60? Yeeeeeahhhh.... Hahah! My goal is to at least make my number in my signature green/positive before Bones 3 hits. Me, too. Speaking of which, I need to update my sig to reflect the arrival of my Burrows and Badgers stuff. I was positive for a couple weeks at least!

    What bust is it? I forget her name, it's a barbarian looking chick with a mohawk and one boob hanging out, the other has a skull on it. It was pretty cheap when I bought it in Berlin though the quality isn't as high as most busts (hence it being cheaper) I thought it would be a good test to see if I liked painting them or not.

    I need to get with you and brainstorm on my eldest. I just got him painting, but I suck at mini games. I use minis for rpgs. But if it will help my kid with focus and self-sufficiency, I'll learn a game or three and play.

    This is how I see figures all the time. I reckon it isn't over-analysis if I'm simply pointing out the obvious. Heh, and here I just assumed that it was a shoulder rolling swagger. (My dad was ex-Navy... a lot of his friends had a shoulder rolling swagger.) As for over analyzing... I have encountered a computer graphics artis that has pointed out this comic - As being completely accurate.... The Auld Grump - do not get me started on Holy Blood & Holy Grail misinterpreting the beginnings of perspective drawing in art....

    in that case, here's the front view for those that my dropbox fails: yay!! Thanks everyone! Of course you can be my friend, Cash! It just might take me years to finish anything! for the skin, especially on the belly, I originally painted stronger abs (my friend is a runner and has like the flattest belly I've ever seen. I have serious tummy envy, there.) but it ended up looking too masculine. Something about intense contrast on skin makes a figure either look old, or male. a softer gradation is always better for females. So I ended up glazing the flesh color overtop of the ab lines and it gave that barely visible anatomy. I'm happier with it! The take-home is if something isn't working, don't always paint over it. sometimes it can be nudged with thin layers where you want it to go.

    Looks like my pick 3 is set at: 1) half-orc - my #1 by far, she's got awesome attitude as others have said and being a half-orc wouldn't need a torch in the dark with their natural dark vision 2) dragonborn - I may modify this one to remove the torch as I believe that dragonborn also have dark vision, not sure what I'd put in that hand yet tho... 3) gnome!!! I may add-on after the campaign is over for: 1) halfling - she's cute and could fill a spot in my lack of 20 halfling female figures 2) human mage - if I got her, I'd modify her to remove the lantern and put a wand in her hand as she already has that flame to light her way 3) human bard - she has a lot of cool character and I like her hairstyle a lot EDIT! I just saw the gnome and she's now edged out the halfling, looks like I'll more than likely be adding at the very least 1 after the campaign if not all 3 that I have listed.

    Sadly, I'm already starting to acquire Pingo's condition and I've only just begun reading up on anatomy. Last night drawing spheres and trying to make the lines on them look right, the horror. Art is not easy! But I'm adamant I won't be a surface artist!
