  1. This was birthday gift from my wife last summer. She’s finally done. I hope you enjoy.

  2. This was my entry for the Quarterly Bones Reaper Fan Facebook Painting Contest. The Angel of Shadow. She was good enough for an Honorable Mention (Thanks Reaper Matt)! For the prior contest, I liked how people were getting interesting light effects by using a black backdrop, so I tried that. Another reason I wanted to do it was to see if I could put her on a standard gaming base, supported by a rod painted black to fade into the backdrop, to give her a good illusion of flying. Also, this was my first attempt at Monochrome. My final idea was to do a weapon swap to a wand (A c

  3. Good day everyone, now that the contest is over, here are some pictures of entry in Reaper's Painting Contest #8. Congrats to the winners and all those who participated. I can't wait to see the next model selection. The model is 77364, Angel of Shadows and it's mounted on a 77247, Pillar of Evil both sculpted by Sandra Garrity. The last picture was my entry in the contest, I managed to finish second. I entitled my entry the Angel of Hope. I removed the sword she was holding in here right hand and I carved her finger as if she's pointing the way for the lost souls so they will to tu

  5. In a classless society, all have the rank of Comrade, but SOMEONE has to do the job of overseeing, and today that someone is Boris. Boris loves his job. To do otherwise would be counterrevolutionary. Look at that expression of fulfillment. Currently he's overseeing a work order placement. Corridor 1735/B seems like an odd place for a delivery, but what, he should question the High Commissar? ...Unless, what if the work order was hacked? By a subversive capitalist pig-dog? But what if it WASN'T? Man, this dreeble-seed "coffee" is giving him an ulcer. And here are two more Yellow-c

  7. Well now that the contest is over, here is my entry for 77364: Angel of Shadows . Not sure if it's because everyone did MORE then just the mini, I do not have many FB friends or I just suck, but I got less votes then Yephima got:( I was also thinking of trying some badger ghost tints on the wings? Should I just leave it as is?

  8. MOON COMMIES were promised, and MOON COMMIES you shall have! Before the Last World War and the subsequent unification of the Earth Government, the Soviets established two off-world colonies. One, on Mars, used the advanced local technology and Martian social philosophy to create a pretty functional egalitarian society, where worker-owned hypertractors eke a living out of the Martian desert. Colloqually, Earth humans refer to these colonists as the Reds. They are a peaceful bunch, if given to proselytizing and boastfulness. The other colony entrenched itself on the far side of the Moon.

  10. More MOON COMMUNISTS! These two--Briony, the Cybertechnician and her faithful robot (50064) and Rosie, the Chronotechnician (50016) also seemed appropriate for an urban-industrial spacefuture setting such as Lunar-Komplecs Alfa. The boots and gloves sealed the deal. Here's Rosie, a go-getting plumbing logistics expert: and Briony, programming and wiring savant. I also had a Zombiesmith Mad Scientist whose goggles, gloves, and boots made him look like a natural fit for this setting, driven to continually improve counter-saboteur blasting technology:

  12. A couple I finished up last weekend. Gloria has been sitting around a while, she has the tiniest arms that had to be glued in, and massive "football pad" shoulders that look really awkward on her tiny frame. There's also a big gap where the arms go in, so rather than file a lot, I painted it to look like sleeves. While she has the whole "urban gangster" look that would typically be black I wanted to give the piece some color so I chose the neon orange for her crop top. For the base I played with one of the HappySeppuku base stamps I got at Reapercon. Stone is a cha

  15. @pcktlntmay enjoy this anecdote: Wife opened the box from Georgia I suggested she should wrap up and give to me for Christmas. She cried out, "This isn't what you wanted, it's a Platypus!" I responded "Does it have a coin in it's hands?" She said "Yes." I said, "Then, It's a Niffler. Don't show it to me, just wrap it up." My wife hasn't a clue about the Potterverse, [Nevertheless, I still love her.] She is gradually getting introduced to geekdom, but as Margaret Hamilton said in her role as The Wicked Witch Of The West: "These things must be done,

  17. Our party in Megan's game now has a base! Hurraay! And, we got enough treasure from the gang of necromancers that had moved into the basement dungeons below the property to almost pay it off! Seems that family of artificers that had used the place as their home and workshop were not very nice people, and got taken out by some even less nice people - they had a flesh golem manufactory going on down in their basement. Then the necromancers that killed them took it over, to continue the business. And were making sure to use fresh parts for their gol

  20. Probably when she gets tired of just texting me pictures and asking for advice. I can only do so much! She did Dark Sword's barbarian fighting a snake; he was missing a hand, so she made it a bloody stump and was amused. She painted DS combat shrews too, but was less amused by them. And she painted DS's Chick in Chainmail. Today she started a female bard or bard-like figure, but she said she's waiting to do more until her new green paint and red-head paint arrive. She is discovering the magic of having just the right color paint (she's like that with fabric and quilting too).

  23. random plug for charity: our FLGS is hosting Dungeons and Donations for our local children's hospital. We have 3 hours left in our 24 hour marathon of gaming featuring the classic Encounter at Barrier Peak. We're live on twitch and the main page is here. Feel free to donate- must rescue the children! Also... you can Bane or Boon the players. It's awfully fun to hit them with random acts of cruelty! The death counter is currently at 26.

The Day of the Dead Fairy Tavern "Zapata's Skull & Rose" Okay, it's hokey, but my daughter enjoys the masks and such from the Day of the Dead and as I was trying out my homemade paper clay, I started to shape the fairy garden house. When I placed the windows where they ended up, they reminded me of a cockeyed skull and the idea was born. The List Das Air Dry Clay Two Plastic Bottles of different size with the bottoms cut off.

  29. Just noticed that the subpoena I have at work is for the 3rd of January. I thought it was for the 8th. Good thing I double checked, because that's the day I get back to work from my New Year's "vacation." I would have totally not thought about it, and that would be bad. Especially since it's for pretrial on the guy who punched me. I doubt I'm gonna have to do anything, but I still have to be there.

  35. When I first saw Fellowship in the theater, there were two adolescent girls that went 'Eeeee!' every time Orlando Bloom made an appearance. I... had always thought that was something that somebody had made up... (Not really complaining, mind... they were really enjoying the movie....) And... I was somewhat disgruntled at the lack of the barrow wights and Tom Bombadil. Other than that... I felt like it was a craftsmanly job - not a masterpiece, but obvious that he respected the work. But, Lords and Ladies! How I disliked The Hobbit films.... Thou

  45. I ordered a package from Reaper on Friday, and received a notice that it's on its way, but what arrived first was a group of three figures from Hero Forge. I haven't decided on the rules, but these are ultimately destined for some sort of Bordertown-like urban fantasy game. I am doing this utterly backwards, building some evocative (to me at least) miniatures and then constructing a setting around them. I figure if I don't order them any faster than I paint them, I can probably manage this. My initial order of two have been painted, and I have another group

  46. Ready to go home. For real. It's 20F, and I still have to go around cleaning the lots. The weather is also why I decided not to partake of the 99 cent HD paints. I ordered the Christmas paints a year or two ago in weather like this, and I'm pretty sure a couple of them at least partially froze. Also hoping an order I placed elsewhere today ships out sometime soonish. I know half of it will ship out next week, but I can't use it without the other half, which is backordered and the site doesn't list an expected date that it will be back in stock. I ordered a vape kit, because I figur

  47. I really hate how they revealed Eowyn when she picked up Meri. My favorite part in the book was when she ripped off her helmet and said "I am no man" which made the Witch Queen hesitate. The best surprise I've ever read in a book and they ruin that scene in the movie before you even get to that scene. I don't like all the slow motion hobbits in pain, and too much crying hobbits. But all the rest was pretty good.

Hedgehog Warrioress (Medium, Hedgehog) Hare Warrior (Large, Hare) Wildcat Warrior (Large, Wildcat) Fox Huntress (Large, Fox) Gwasila, Fennec Fox (Large, Fennec Fox, Rare beast, Freelances) I wanted to order a few more, but this order should just squeeze in under the VAT limit. Oh, and I got half a dozen glass christmas ornaments in yesterday... The one I've checked so far has an 18mm opening, but with the way the edge has been trimmed, it may be possible to file it out to 19mm. (Store is Little Crafty Bu
