  1. 02243: Robert O'Mannon sculpted by Bobby Jackson. Some time ago I said I would post a step-by-step of a tartan being painted. I've done the photos and here they are: Tartan Step by Step

  2. Simple speed paint. All done except for the base. Edit: I've added my 2nd Cairn Wraith. I really liked Michael Proctor's example paint so I copied the color scheme for it.

  3. This is the Ogre Smasher from Bones 3. I think all of the ogres from Bones 3 are awesome sculpts! This guy has a "hand" bag and likes to go clubbing.

  4. Something I painted for a friend. This is tiefling #2 of 5 so far. Hoping that before he starts the new campaign that players may pick as their characters. A short work in progress can be found on my just for fun blog/website EYEDAMAGEART Fire and Ice!

  5. Here is another miniature that I made for one of my Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. I tried to see if I could make a smoke effect using cotton. I think it came out pretty good.

  7. I finally got around to painting my bones owlbear. It's such a great sculpt that I was waiting to be inspired to tackle it and, well, the muse spoke. Just for fun I've also included some shots of a much older (1992?) Genedier owlbear that I painted up a while back. The older one has seem some table time and needs a touch up or two. :) The new owlbear is a bit tricky to get a good photo of.

  10. Antediluvian Miniatures Dungeons & Dragons is an American animated television series based on TSR's Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. A co-production of Marvel Productions and TSR, the show originally ran from 1983 through 1985 for three seasons on CBS for a total of twenty-seven episodes. The show focused on a group of six friends who are transported into the titular realm and followed their adventures as they tried to find a way home with the help of their guide 'Dungeon Master'.

  11. I don't usually paint Warhammer miniatures, but there is a local painting contest which has very specific rules so I figured why not. I've never entered a painting contest before, so there is no time like the present. I've decided to carry on with my experiments in object source lighting and apply wht I've learned so far in this project. One of the big challenges will be doing the OSL in the metallic armour of the knight. I've never tried that before. The two figures are "Neave Blacktalon" and "Wight King". Here is my planned layout. The white line is to align their line of s

  12. This is an old Mage Knight figure that I slightly converted and repainted. He was holding a comically undersized flail in his left hand, so I cut it off and replaced it with a halberd from an old GW Chaos Warrior I had in my bits box. After that, it was just a matter of repainting him for use on the tabletop. He'll make an interesting BBEG in some game I haven't created yet. Thanks for looking.

Lawns aren’t “her” chore, and she is desperate for cash when they head to Tokyo in a month. Disney pins from Tokyo Disneyland are calling, and she must have! Today she didn’t need to run back over the spots she missed. Level up!

  18. I have been completely unsettled the whole weekend. I think getting the huge drawing out on Friday has left a bit of a hole in my psyche. I keep thinking I need to work more on it, and feel guilty about going on vacation, but... I couldn't work anything on it until this Wednesday anyway. Hopefully, a week in an alpine area with put my feathers back in the right order. I keep them numbered for just this type of situation.

  22. Hubby and I have been playing a survival horror game called Dying Light. It's really fun, burns a lot of hours. But it made Hubby want to take a break from our regular dnd campaign and do a little Memorial Day two day game. So we rolled up some new characters for a modern setting (it still had magic, because it was set in his home brew world, just way in the future (spoiler alerts!)). I made a kobold sanitation worker (which I knew would doom me to being attacked by sewer zombies, but hey, I got to make some good screams). Ty (the kid) made a dwarven ice cream man! He was hilariou

  24. Step 17 -- prepare to make a mess. It's okay -- it's all in the name of science, or art, or whoever. Next colour from the reference material is the white lines. However, pure white lines will be way to bright and ruin the overall effect. In fact, I have found that even an off white is far to bright. So for this pattern I chose Golden Blonde. For immersion purposes, I'm claiming that its because the sheep wool is slightly off white anyway. The process is the same as in the previous step, except now you are laying down the long thin lines in the middle of the fat blue stripes, neatly spac

  25. Step 15 Resist the call of the shelf of shame! It is time to start applying those dreaded very long, thin lines. I have tried various brushes and ways of thinning the paint to achieve this in the past. However, I want to mention that I watched one of the Hobby Cheating videos and found the answer (its called "How to paint sharp, thin lines"). I don't use ink, like he demonstrates, but I did use straight liquitext flowaid to thin the paint and I was really pleased with how it turned out. The issue is no longer thinning the paint, now its just keeping my hands steady. A couple of hints: P

  26. Step 9: Laying out the pattern for the vertical stripes. I laid out the vertical lines on the kilt at the same width and spacing as the horizontal lines, as per the reference material. Step 10: Converging vertical stripes on the plaid. The pattern has to wrap around to the inside of the plaid as well. I therefore chose to put the first vertical strip right on the left edge of the plaid as viewed from behind so that I would more easily be able to carry on the pattern inside the plaid without having to guess too much. I then continued the pa

  27. Ok, he didn't end up on my shelf of shame, so here comes the next step. Step 5: Select the position for the first line. I always start with a horizontal line with one of the fatter more easily painted colours. I always select the starting point so that I will be able to paint the complete pattern at that spot. This is important because I am going to use the starting point for a reference for everything else to keep the pattern the same size throughout and I will adjust the orientation of the pattern relative to this start point in areas where the fabric is curved, like the pla

  28. Guess who got a VM working that lets him play Diablo? THIS GUY! I've been playing for about 2 hours now, with most of that time being spent trying to figure out the timing for the dupe glitch again. I used to be able to do it without even trying back in the day, but after not playing the game on a regular basis for nearly 2 decades I've totally lost that ability. The struggle to cheat my way to riches in a game where money doesn't really matter past the first 10 character levels is real. But I gotta be able to dupe those stat elixers if they ever drop for me, and duping spellbooks is just abou

  32. I think that this might explain the current popularity of smaller skirmish games like Frostgrave, Song Of Blades And Heroes, and so on. They're smaller (10 or 12 dudes as opposed to 10 or 12 units of dudes), and are figure neutral; use whatever figures you want. There also seems to be games out there that are following this example for mass battle games, too. Lion/Dragon Rampant by Osprey books are pretty good big battle games that aren't tied to any particular line of figures. Kings of War by Mantic is a hybrid of the two; they do make figures, but don't care overmuch what figures you use to

  33. I think with the fantasy and scifi games the issue is mostly that most rules sets are not written to be figure agnostic. With historical games, as long as you have figures in the right scale of the right type, all you need to do is base them properly, and you can play whatever ruleset is available. With a game like Infinity, say, there are only so many figures of cybernetic Japanese hacker dogs (if you can't tell I have no real experience with Infinity) and if the rules are revised to to sudden make your cybernetic Japanese hacker dogs illegal, then you feel put out. There is als

  37. Step 16 -- If your hands are shaky, skip the next steps and just put him on your shelf of finished miniatures. Or, keep going and accept that its likely going to get very messy until you get practiced at applying those long thin lines. I encourage you to try this, its actually not that hard once you get an eye for it, it just looks a bit messy the first few times. Like this time! Ok, time to keep moving forward. The next colour on the reference pattern is the red. The red lines will border both sides of the wide blue stripes. This means you are painting twice as many red line

  38. Step 13. I knew I would have to darken the blue squares where the blue lines intersect, so that is what happened next. I added a bit of blackened brown into the blue and then painted in all the squares. I was not too precise in this, mostly because my hands are not very steady at the moment. The messiness is not TOO noticeable though, because the contrast between the light blue/dark blue and the tan is not very high. Step 14. Apply Chestnut Gold glaze over everything except the dark blue squares. As noted above, the contrast is not very high, but it

  39. Step 2: I painted everything else on the miniature first. Why? Because I can fix a splotch of white line on the skin, but it is much harder to fix a splotch of skin colour that gets on the finished tartan. So, I paint everything else first. I also do a bit of pre-shading and highlighting. The tartan is not a very reflective fabric, so the highlights are not going to be as bright as I would usually make them. Step 3: Prepare my palette with all the paint as per my plan from my notes. I am using a mix of 50% water, 25% liquitex

  40. Totally unrelated, but in my youth we had a Parrot at home. A Green Amazone. He was mostly friendly and with me he developed a love/hate connection. Sometimes he let me pet him, other days he wanted to chew my fingers off. When I left the house he couldn't cope with the family being incomplete and he tore out his feathers. Poor thing. But..I have been thinking about him and his posture when he attacked. See? Birds seem to have evolved from the Dino predators, the two-legged kind. Now this parrot had a large vocabulaire, he could mimic us and

  44. The film The Greatest Story Ever Told is a retelling of the life of Jesus Christ, lifted largely from the book of Matthew. It stars Max Von Sydow as Jesus, and was one of those "every celebrity we can convince to work for scale" extravaganzas they just don't make any more. The credits read like a list of who's who in Hollywood, and a fair number of VERY well known people collected decent checks for showing up for a day's work. One of 'em was John Wayne, who was doing very well for himself at the time. He played a Roman centurion, and does not appear until nearly the end of the movie; he on

  45. Yea, and that fertilizer is what birthed the banana peel joke. The banana peel isn't a banana peel, it's a turd. You just can't go about throwing horse turds around on stage during a vaudeville routine, so they had to improvise. Also, give it another 50 years and I'm betting we'll have self-driving cars that drive better than the majority of people ever could.

  46. Now for some 1980s color on those clothes! I laid in some Red Oxide on the male Robo Hunter. Normally this is a fairly opaque color, but thinned down it lets the brown underneath show through. I laid in some Yellow Ochre on the Teen Robo Hunter's dress. Like Red Oxide, it is basically rust and fairly opaque, but here is thinned down so you can see the underpainting. I painted her glasses Titanium White (above) so I could make them look glowing green (below) with a wash of Phthalo Green just lightened with a touch of Titanium White.

I found it rather disturbing to learn that the earlier urinals were located outside of the pubs and taverns, rather than indoors.
