  1. I like the idea of yellow and orange skinned ogres and I've seen a few before. This is my first foray into yellow skinned ogre territory and I liked highlighting Witt a mix of orange and shading with a bit of green. This was a heavy one though, so I'll be looking forward to the bones ones coming soon (tm). I stamped some green stuff for the base and sculpted a couple extra bits while I was at it. It's supposed to be a bit of cloth and some rope. Also there is a pile of round objects that honestly looks like massive deer poo. Well, why not? Painted the cloth red, which maybe

  2. Hey everyone! Just checking in again to show off another paint job. This is the first of my group of 5 player characters that I am painting for my RP group. First off is Twynblade the Rogue, I was able to use the Eli Quicknight figure that came as part of the anniversary promotion. I hope you enjoy! This is my 6th figure and I feel like I'm starting to develop a style. I like going for the gritty realism which is why I like adding details like muddy cloaks and dented/rusty armor and weapons. Because he is a roguish type and the guy who plays him is always hang

  3. My Dad turns 84 on Saturday. He's past Birthday gifts as such, but he wants to spend the afternoon at a local heritage village followed by going down to the waterfront shops of one of the older sections of town and then heading to The Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. I'll have Birthday cake waiting for when we get home. Should be a good day.

  4. Ah, to be new to it all and think that 35 minis is a lot. I've been collecting for 30 years and the unpainted numbers have slowly grown in proportion to painted every year. The speed I paint I have at least 10 years of minis ahead of me even if I don't buy more. But looking at and buying minis seems to be the biggest part of my hobby.

  5. Finished up my old Ral Partha Mimics I purchased years ago. I painted the chest years ago, but been siting on these. The GW Nurgles are in the same boat. I still have a few more of them to paint. I included the first Nurgle I painted years ago for comparison. The mini's are a bit too shiny for my taste so I may brush on some matte varnish since the spray matte showed up shiny.

  7. So I keep feeling sleepy in the afternoon. It happens to most everyone, but now it was to the point that I was dozing off during meetings when they turned off the lights, particularly if I wasn't an active participant. And people noticed. Drinking coffee didn't seem to help much. So I got tested for sleep apnea several weeks ago, and I got the results. I don't have sleep apnea. Whatever it is they measure, I'm not even at half the value where they get concerned. I've had trouble falling asleep for as long as I can remember, though once asleep, I'm good. Now that the sl

  9. While waiting for water effects to dry (more boring than paint) I finished up a couple minis that have been on the desk for a while. His one here is a favorite. Got all rainbow inspired when painting up a great worm. This was the first mini where I'd used the sand/gravel and glue mix to "sculpt" a base. Had lots of rocks to stick into it as it dried. After a dark primer and light drybrush, I liked the look of it so much I didn't want to paint over it for a few months. Well I finally brought it back to the painting desk about a month ago and have been hitting the rocks with various leftov

I elected to omit the halyards and backstays, as I couldn't keep the lines tight and they made the ships look messy. PDF by War Artisan. Construction and rigging by me. Yes, I forgot to make a WIP thread.

I'm sure Reaper is doing the best they can; a month from now everyone will be playing with their new toys ( or at least waiting for their local mail carrier to drop off a large parcel on their doorstep ). In the grand scheme of things, there really isn't anything to get all worked up about. Now, everyone go sit in a corner, gently massage your earlobes and repeat after me: woo-saa

It is like going out to eat, and getting a salad. I can make a salad at home! I want fries and a burger....I am becoming very American! Also, as a wise man once said: "You don't make friends with salad."

  15. Lots of speculation here without anything solid to back it up. Please be patient people, and be happy that things are really rolling now. You'll be getting your notices soon enough, don't worry if someone else got theirs first. Me, I'm going to make victory bacon in anticipation of my notice.

It's like she knew exactly what I needed today. XD EDIT: Actually, I gotta admit, it IS rather relaxing. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

  29. Actually, yes...this is how I felt, more or less, when I did this job before I started my PhD program. The only thing that kept me motivated during that time was the promise that i'd be working on my PhD soon. I am back at the job for the summer and the only thing preventing my mental collapse is the promised that I'll be back at school in 10 weeks.

I need to decide whether I'm going to try and meet up with people or pack for the trip to my parents that weekend. Edit: You know, it would probably help if I mentioned the word "birthday" in point one and "Paizocon" in point two. Not enough sleeeeeep!

  34. Finally got to try the new board game cafe this week, Donuts and Dragons. It's roomy, and the kitchen area isn't much to look at, but they have a nice big collection of games. And they recently started a Wednesday evening D&D game, and I was there! Last time I RPed was at ReaperCon. D&D 5e, we created 1st level characters, and played until closing time. We lost the last battle (lots of bad rolls on our side) but won the adventure. Cultists and kobolds were destroying a town while a blue dragon was attacking the keep. We were a mixed group, a youngster who was pl

  35. I have often been saddened by the fact I was unable to participate in this KS campaign. But I also realized the other day that, even if I had, I already have more minis to paint than I know what to do with. I have at least 35 minis that I purchased in the last year, that sit unopened. At the speed I paint, and factoring in a few more purchases, I will be finished with the ones I have around the time Bones IV releases...and I mean for shipment like 3 currently is.

  36. I'm saving all these tavern names for possible use later. I also do not care about the KS stuff. It will get here in a bit, and that's enough for me. Considered I only skim most KS updates, knowing I'll get my stuff "soonish" is good enough for me. Besides, it's not like getting it sooner is gonna get them painted any sooner.

  39. That was in Update #99: "In the past, we have taken the first day to fine-tune the system, running a dozen orders, then stopping, setting things up more effectively, and continuing for maybe a hundred more before optimizing the workflow further. So typically the first day's output is relatively small, but those first coupled hundred orders are pivotal in helping us reach our goal of 1,000+ orders per subsequent day. At the end of that first day, we will send out another Update, to share progress and make our last minute "update your addresses" plea. Seriously, you'd be surpris

  40. That might be the initial random grab of orders to make sure the software / export file is working. (Always a good idea, no matter how many times you've done it. Windows updates, mice, Murphy and the flapping of butterfly wings in Asia can all make the file suddenly not export correctly) So I anticipate shipping in earnest to begin Monday. (If the Rando on the FB group isn't blowing smoke.) Try Barrilla Protien Plus. All the good stuff of while wheat, without the limpness and funny taste.

  44. So, I received a new shirt from my wife. Well, I'm going to get it at some point as she ordered it last night. It's a black shirt with a left gauntlet - the symbol of the Iron Hands Space Marine Chapter. They were my first and still favourite Chapter. When the pain gets really bad, I use their motto as a mantra: "The flesh is weak." Anyway, the text around the Chapter Symbol says "Humans do not submit to fate, we shape it". Pretty neat if you ask me. I think I'll score some cool points amongst the old gaming group when I hobble into the store or some of them come over t
