  2. Presenting Percival, a knight of renown from Kingdom Death. Not massively happy with the face on this one, I was trying to give her a very pale complexion but it didn't really work. I also could've done a better job on her hair (I was just very intimidated by it for some reason). I am pretty pleased with the rest of her though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  3. Just wanted to share my mini with you guys. The photo that the contest was judged on was taken briefly after I accidently dropped my finished mini in my drink. How it fell off the base into the drink astounds, me but anyhow It was right before my friend was to take the photo.So we took the first shot which was the one the contest judged. I then came home fixed what I seen was wrong and took this double exposure shot ,which I found out later couldnt be used. Ill post the judged piece and the final shot

  6. I have had several folks wanting to see pictures of my Sister's of the Blade Warlord army that is dedicated to all the women that I know that have fought Breast Cancer and survived. Painted by my friends, Reaper mini-exchange partners, and with a handful from me. In honor of the Race for the Cure today, here they are. If you click on the photo, then click FULL SIZED in the lower left corner you can zoom in very close. That said, I will try to take some smaller group photos so that it is easier to see the various individual takes on the same model.

  7. I have been sick for several months, and it appears I am turning the corner now. Finally got the Noble Wood Elf Couple completed yesterday. Magnificent pair to paint from Tom Meirer. I wanted to get the woods aspect in there, and yet create the Royal hidden in the wood feeling. Their is some subtle gold and brown colors going on in robes. I'm trying to create "Non" highlights, and yet make the figures pop (if that makes sense). Here are three photos. The newly Diabetic diagnosis has caused a bit of (hopefully temporary) eye focusing damage when I use the cell

  9. Jack is sad. He has grudgingly decided to adult, and has come to the conclusion that the money he was going to spend to go to the Hudson Valley Comic Con to meet Patricia Quinn from The Rocky Horror Picture Show (two hour drive one way - $40 total for gas, $35 for admission, $25-50 for autographs, plus food and various expenses) would be better spent on more necessary things like clothes and a new elfing phone since Jack dropped his several times over the past couple days and finally cracked the screen a bit. Jack realizes that, having already met Pat Quinn once before, meeti

  12. Though she's pretty much a Goth, the player requested that she be wearing mostly blue clothes. I started by laying down a foundation of deep, dull blue mixed from Burnt Umber and Ultramarine Blue. This is a color that looks blue when it is wet but sinks to near-black when it dries. I laid in some medium blue mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White. Ultramarine is a pure clear sky blue, just a little tinged to the violet end of the spectrum. Then I mixed some medium and pale blues from Phthalocyanine Blue and Titanium White and laid them in. Phthalo

  13. I need to to take a village with me to Huzzah in Maine in two weeks, to use in a 40mm Renaissance game. My collaborator and I have used somewhat underscale buildings for 40mm battle games before, so I thought this would be a good excuse to get some Fold-flat buildings from Fat Dragon done. The building on the left is a basic 4x4 square, which I built a year or so back. The three stir one on the right is new today. Some of my 40s are here to give me an idea whether this looks right. Here's a view of the bigger one, each story ex

  14. *ambles in gulping down his coffee* good morning! At the car dealership getting oil changed. Met with our landscaper today at 7:30am to get a couple estimates, we decided to upgrade our irrigation system and add a patch of fake grass under the big covered patio. At 11:00 a pool designer is stopping by to get us an estimate for the pool we are going to put in. This is company #4 we are having come look and I want 5 total bids before we decide. Then an we have a few more errands to run before meeting up with my wife's cousin and his wife for dinner tonight.

  17. Can you come over when I'm hungover and in doubt as to whether or not I should do something? I think that shot of adrenaline would help me choose. Sometimes I wish I had a severe allergy just so that I could try jabbing myself with an EpiPen for broccolis and giggles one day. Also, wow, I didn't think that people were being serious about changing the profanity filter to return broccoli. Well, broccoli...

  18. My girl and me like to hike, stroll, walk... We often follow trails that lead through rural areas, nature, forest or historical sites. I would like to share a few pics, so I can show you what the Netherlands look like aside from the big cities and harbour. Yes...we do have tulips and windmills...but not everywhere. I hope you guys and girls and creatures like it. These were made today, due to Liberation Day I had the day off ( not everyone has a free day but the Military does). An Anthill, A Windmill and Tulips, some nice mushrooms attached to

  19. Despite not having finished my second batch of zombicide abominations, my son has been on me every day since my birthday to work on this piece as he "gave it" to me. Since I fear she's going to take a while since I'm going to really be pushing myself on the skin and the rest, I figure she'll be around a while with breaks to work on other stuff. I also managed to break a piece of the ship while trying to remove the flash so I'll have to do a little repair work on that (put the rest of the ship back in the baggy when it happened as I was really tired at the time and shouldn't

  20. Delicate piece. Glued a swordhand, head, tail, wings and a dagger. Wish i had more time, but i had to call finished at this point. Spent about a week more than usual on him. So much going on with him.

  21. Here is the other Reaper model I did over Turkey day. With this one I'm adding the rear shot because this miniature is my first attempt at NMM. Please let me know what you think about it.. Here's the back shot. I did the dagger without using any metallic paints. Looking to see what you all think. I've been since working on some other figures with NMM and maybe I'll stick those up later. Thanks!

  23. My pathfinder Sarenite paladin, Zekir, has picked up a couple of followers. The first is Aysun, an oracle. I did a little conversion and painted up 77217: Mi-Sher by Julie Guthrie to represent this daughter of the desert, diviner of the Dawnflower, and servant of the spirits of her ancestors. I cut off her left hand and scimitar and replaced them with the left hand of 77091: Nienna, Female Elf Ranger by Werner Klocke. I also eventually lopped off her other scimitar, before deciding to keep it after all and pinning it back on. The brooch in her left hand is made from a tiny washer a

  24. I have given myself a project. One which, most likely, will never be completed, or at least not completed this decade. I have decided that I will paint up all the minis I need to run my friends through White Plume Mountain. 5 Flesh golems, 2 kelpies, 5 bugbears, 3 ogres, 4 black puddings, 2 gargoyles, 2 wights, a gray ooze, a sphinx, 3 shadows, a vampire, a werewolf, a giant crab, 8 ghouls, 9 human fighter types, 6 giant crayfish, 6 giant scorpions, 4 sea lions, 3 manticores, an oni, and 4 efreet. Oh, and I'm trying to find the time and drive to paint up at least 4 PCs as well. I

  25. I've had this pirate on my shelf for a little bit and decided last night to carve off his pistol (since most D&D settings don't have guns) and put some color on him. Now get gets to sit on my LGS's shelf until someone picks him up for their D&D character.

  26. Does waking up early to get ready and head out to Free Comic day and spend nearly $90 count as productive? Took the brother-in-law, niece and my daughter. They all got their free comics and we picked up 3 games that looked fun using the buy 2 get 1 free promo the store runs during special events like this. Also saw some power rangers signing autographs and some star trek folk i didnt recognize and a slew of Gearbox employees being treated like rock stars. Fun times.

  28. My Reaper order from Monday left Minnesota last night, yet it hasn't arrived anywhere yet. I'm half expecting it to show up on the tracking as being in California or Florida, given how it seems to want to take a circuitous route around the country to get to me. Tomorrow(Today) is Free Comic Book Day. I'm tempted to go to my FLCS and see what he's got going on, as he's had some artists and writers show up in the past, but I also have a lot of things I need to do around the house. And I'd be really tempted to spend money, which I don't want to do more of right now. Especially when it

  29. I'll celebrate this news with you Knight. Gotta say, even though I'm a US backer, I'm happy to see that international backers get their orders packaged and sent out the door first. It would be great if it could be standard practice whenever possible. It isn't always possible, but it seems downright polite whenever I see it happen.

Basically a reporter and a camera on the red carpets of the biggest Galas all over town. Who knew people would go to these lengths for a mint julep and a chance to bet on the ponies?

  34. So I peeled the mask off this evening, after spraying everything with Dullcote to protect the paint from my fingers Report Here And as I had everything off the nails to more easily rub it off, I dry fitted it together and took some pics.... Sorry that my backdrop isn't big enough for this..... So now to touch up the areas where the mask wasn't right, and start doing some more details and then glazing in shadows and highlights.... Thanks for looking! oh and spray dullcote over the glosscote I used to try and make the mask easier to remove..

  43. I preordered Tales from the Yawning Portal and got it a few weeks ago. Other than the maps being so small it looks good. I played some of these many years ago during the 1st and 2nd edition days so I thought I'd see if I could run some of these for my kids using Pathfinder rules. *sigh* Ended up breaking down and ordering the D&D Beginner Box and Player's Handbook yesterday. Guess I'll finally be trying the new rules. Haven't bought a D&D rulebook since 2nd edition. It's kind of exciting, but learning a new system is always scary.

  44. Tonight I had some fun playing with the bases on my starting three. First time using tufts. Also out gloss varnish on the mud. I think I'm calling these three done. So do I put this over in show off, make a new thread there? And if so should I take individual pictures? Would these be worthy of the inspiration gallery? I assume I can still finish the farmers before closing out this wip. Eventually I'd like to get a pic with all the models from this thread at once.
