  1. Allright Reaperites! This is what took me so dang long to get finished and shipped out to Marsya, which was supposed to go out last fall, I believe. At any rate, the crazy whirlwind that is life delayed the project by several months, and I am happy to report that she had received it! At any rate, I knew it would have to be special as she'd requested something along the lines of fall in Krynn. I was able to track down this: Goldmoon: And this: Riverwind: These two are a couple of the main characters out of the Dragonlance novels, and I figured they would be a great pair for

  2. Okay all! This is the latest experiment as I needed some time off from Space Wolves and I wanted to play around with some ice effects. I stumbled across this old tutorial by Monkey Sloth on making ice, so I figured I'd see what I could do with them as I've been messing around with Space Wolves and all of their frozen misery. I picked up this mini at ReaperCon 2015 and figured I'd try her out as it'd been quite a while since I've painted something with this much cloth on it. I have to say that I spent way more time on this figure than I would have liked, but at least it was a great exercise

  3. USPS tracking has been a bit uneven for me this time around, but it lists a delivery time of today and has been in the correct town since 4:30am, so I'm going to call it good. It was marked as delivered while I was typing this. If however you go by SGHawkins09 and haven't picked up your mail today, stop reading and savor the anticipation for a bit.

  4. Hey, folks! I'm brand new here, though I've been lurking for awhile, and brand new to miniature painting in general. This is my absolute -first- attempt at painting a mini. I tossed around whether or not to post, but why the heck not, eh? The earlier I get constructive criticism, the earlier I can put it to use! I've been wanting to try my hand at painting for awhile now, and finally decided to get a learn to paint kit. I set right to it after receiving it yesterday. He's by no measure great, but I'm fairly happy with him for a first attempt. At the least, I was never tempted to strip him

  5. Last August or so I helped TophDNA with his Summer Exchange (I think) and he was painting a cowboy for someone. At any rate, I decided to paint up this Gunslinger as Roland Deschain from the Dark Tower Series. I believe we did these in one evening, although I didn't complete mine. I'd put some crackle whatchamacallit on the base and left it to dry. However, I didn't get around to painting the base until a few days back while I was waiting for something to dry somewhere. I figured I should finish him as he'd been waiting around for quite some time. Really the only thing to note on this one

  7. Hi again, still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail. I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM. The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows. Ma

  8. I present to you Rasia Bladedancer. I stumbled across her while looking up Rasia from LTPK 5. I thought she looked really cool. While I loved painting her, I still haven't grown in love with basing. Mostly this is from not being good at it, yet. I just finally just decided to call it done. Here is what I settled on calling my Rasia Bladedancer done. Thanks for any C & C you feel inspired to leave. It is always appreciated.

  10. Marvin; If you REALLY want to feel special receive Fifteen (15) letters on onion skin paper, Par Avon, all with the same miss-spelling of your First and last name, from different "Missionary Foundations" with the identical letter inside, asking for a donation. I was amazed that the Pastor's (although different names) used the same pen, AND handwriting ! I felt SO special, especially as I tossed the letters into the fireplace.. kinda gave me a warm feeling ! Jay

  13. So, I thought I'd go ahead and post these, as my exchange partner received them. Just hoping they arrived ok! only have USPS confirmation. I taped up the sword between two pieces of cardboard as it was very bendy I found and I was worried it'd break in post. But anyway I took pics first before shipping so here they are :) Yes, I took a lot lol since I wouldn't see it again I wanted to make sure I had a record in case I wanted to do something like it again :) few words about them: the wolf is supposed to be a timber wolf - I got some reference pictures and tried to duplicate that pattern.

  14. In the process of painting up Darkrasp as a priest of Auril for a tabletop game. Decided to use my uv fluro paints to add a little secret easter egg on the spell scroll. Add a little wow factor for the tabletop when DM of the game places mini down. Can whip out the UV pointer and make spell effect occur. It's the simple things that amuse.

  16. What innocent activity was transpiring when this belligerent mountain attacked? I was merely walking along minding my own business, doing some geologic mapping for a field course when it yanked the talus out from under my boot and threw me about 40 feet down the slope into a bunch of cactus. Rude if you ask me. I mean if it didn't want me walking on that particular slope it should have just said so.

  24. On an aquisitorial note, I had ordered a Kzinti Battlefleet box set for Starfleet Battles by ADB from FRP, (for $4!) only to recieve an email saying the item was out of stock 2 days later, so instead of messing around with refunds or store credit, they exchanged it for this: And sinse you can't see anything in that pic, here is a copy of one of the pics From Freebooter's website: He would / will make an interesting Gunslinger....

  26. I went to Home Depot today. There are things there that are useable for bases. I could totally make a sci-fi space hatch out of plumbing flanges. But I bypassed them. This time. I acquired: 1 Gallon Simple Green concentrate. 2.5" #8 construction screws (a door had the screws stripped out of the jam. Hoping the longer screw works). 12" 12 gauge mending plate. Works perfectly to fix the bent metal bar in my fridge door. 2 8" mending plates (in case the larger one didn't work). Now to figure out what I can do with these...

  27. Acquired... Last night... I used my arcade tickets to pick up a grow-your-own-crystals kit and a $25 Regal Cinemas gift card (I saw Deadpool today)... Today... Jo Ann's Fabrics: A tube of glitter for $1 to use as gold coins for basing. Dollar Tree: I picked up a pretty trashed paperback copy of The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel for $1 that'll need some rehab before it's readable A set of 4 different styles of tweezers for $1 And an elf-ton of junkfood, most of which I ate at the movie. Best Buy: Labyrinth on dvd for $4. Books-A-Million!: Shifty's War by M

  28. I have almost completely failed at adulting today... I was a baaad Jack. All I had to do was go to the credit union before noon, pay my internet bill before 1pm and then do some shopping and make colcannon. Oh, and do hobby stuff, like painting and setting up the grow-your-own-crystals kit I picked up yesterday... I managed to pay the cable bill. Got out of the house too late to hit the credit union, so I went to pay the internet bill, but realized I'd taken the (slightly different) route to work instead of to the office of the cable company. As I happened to be driving past

  32. Just wanted to post a follow-up, two of these three finally hit the table last night. My friend finished his campaign last weekend, and mine started this weekend. I opened up the list of allowed races for my campaign, and two players decided to play bugbear bards, who are twins... (They're not so good at being bards, as bugbears get -2 CHA in the stats, but they are multiclassing in to rogues, as both also got a +2 DEX racial stat modifier, along with a racial Stealth bonus modifier). So the theory is they play bad music while the other relieves the crowed of coin purses...) Anyway

  33. Decided to experiment with my face and go completely clean-shaven for the first time in years. My daughter seems convinced that I'm a girl now, and my wife laughs at me every time I walk in the room. Yeesh. Well, the joke's on them - I'm keeping it this way for at least the first week I'm on vacation anyway! That'll show them! Or something?

  38. I have three Octopi, but no hats mine seems to be kinda stuck. Nothing new no matter what I do. I don't know if there is a limited number of "slots" objects can take, but I have noticed that new things seem to appear once I remove other things. In looking for ways to trim objects I discovered that trees can have way more components than it first appears. One of mine -- not the smallest, but not a really big one either -- had something like nine clumps of foliage on it, some of them quite small and overlapping so they couldn't be differentiated except by the circle that appeared around

  39. The muse didn't hang around to long tonight, after I got the Polly S Couatl Orange highlight on the skin, Some GW Scorched brown on the non furry boots, and some GW Stormvermin fur on 2 of them, that was it, on a night that I normally PAINT until 5 am, I was done at 1.... (I spent the last 2.5 hours moving paints to dropper bottles, so at least some hobby stuff got done) Thoughts comments critiques welcome! George

  40. More nonhuman barkeeps/innkeepers of both genders. Which of course means we're going to need a female human innkeeper first that isn't a barmaid or a serving wench. A former adventurer who looks like she can show patrons the door when needed.

  47. @Marvin - Congrats on being mostly done! Moving is a HUMONGOUS pain; be careful to lift properly and drink lots of water! :) I like Google Hangouts a lot, it's like Skype but FAR more reliable and much lighter on the CPU. Plus it doesn't constantly hang around and nag you every time you try to close it. Yay, my hat dude is back! Except it's just the top half of him, and he's stuck in a bush. http://xkcd.com/1663/#06bc9104-fbec-11e5-8001-42010a8e0018 I think I might trim my trees back, they're pretty but not particularly interesting.

  48. I assembled a few of my CAV today! Look, I'm productive! Back for another round now that supper's done. Hopefully in this round of assembly I'll notice warped pieces before gluing things together... And unrelated... Anyone know of any good video chat sites? Like, if you wanted to organise an ad-hoc chat with friends, not just random strangers or... more adult things. Is Google Hangouts the thing now?
