  1. Mrs. Bowes makes her way into the village. It's a lovely morning, but.... She can't shake the feeling that something is not quite right. Even the sheep seem unusually disturbed.

  2. I painted the Bones Black, Bones, and Wizkids owlbears as Great Horned Owls. This is the Bones Black owlbear. Not sure why it isn't in the store, even under the special edition section. I used the number it was assigned my order form. Anyway, it is a pretty cool model! I have several of them so will be able to paint them as different types of owls. I definitely need a Hedwig owlbear!

  4. Copy and pasted from today’s update: ”When will my rewards order ship? When does Wave X ship? There is no update to the information we shared last update. Our final container shipped last week. This means we expect to receive it the first week of March. This means we won’t be able to begin fulfillment in this month (February) as planned. “

  5. Yesterday i was discussing this forum with a friend I have been gaming with for 25+ years. Like myself at first, he was surprised to hear of a forum that has not been overrun with the rude, obnoxious and trollkin. I mod on a couple other forums where we have to work to keep them friendly, regularly banning those who would ruin it for everyone. This place is a welcome oasis and I am so glad to have found it! I have learned so much andmade several friends here. Just... thanks.

  6. Trooper Wagner surveys the wooded area behind the church. The trees are very still. Pilot Captain Becker approaches. "You have your orders, trooper! Why do you stand here?" "Search the woods, and quickly. The Commander will arrive soon and you do not want to disappoint him."

  7. Part of the RP Challenge was to paint 4 forgotten & unfinished minis. So I did up a bones Temple Dragon, Sir Scale a lot, a Kitsune and a wolverine. Hope they pass inspection!

  9. So, some people I know twisted my arm (merely mentioned) about playing Gas lands. So, in addition to the rule book, this happened today. The army men are going to be dismembered for weapons.

  10. So had a second interview with a company today. Think it went pretty well but we'll see. The important bit to this topic is that their offices are 5 minutes from the shiny new Princess Auto store (apparently similar to Harbor Freight in the US), So I had to pop in. So what I was looking for was the gizmo on the left, a deburring tool. Great for taking the edges of a brim off 3D prints, apparently. Then I found the funky curved files. Thought they may be good for some of the places that flats won't fit. We'll see. And then I spotted the little bar clamps. Hadn't see such lit

  12. I painted the Bones Black, Bones, and Wizkids owlbears as Great Horned Owls. This is the Wizkids owlbear. When you put the three together, they make a crazy singing group!

  13. I never know when my minis are done but here are the two fighters from the Dungeon Dwellers line, painted as a pair. Am using more and more Scale 75 paints, most of these colours are from their fantasy line with Army Painter washes.

  14. Love owl bears and really like the pudgy but dangerous pose of this one. Although he does look a bit like a flamenco dancer. Really simple brown primer, dark brown rush then Zandri Dust and Ghost Grey (Vallejo Game Colour) highlights.

  15. Like a number of you I picked up one of the new owlbears to see what the Bones Black material was all about. Given the local weather I decided to paint it up as one of those mythic polar owlbears you occasionally see wandering around.

  19. I hope everyone is doing great. Family had the day off from School today and I had the day off, played video games, watched some TV. It is cold outside with snow and ice, Glad I did not have to go anywhere today. Not looking forward to going to work tomorrow. Tired of the bloody cold.

  20. I got a few minutes to paint tonight so I tried weathering the leather. I enhanced some of the sculpted scratches, added a few extra, and tried making the edges look more worn.

  21. So since I had to rebuild my music collection it seemed only proper to fill it first with Metallica and Megadeth. Having done so, it then seemed only logical to listen to them in order. This has proven most satisfactory, as it feels like a real ripping metal duel, with each attempting to out thrash the other. On my way to the end of Peace Sells, it occured to me that Dave Mustaine is almost 60 years old. And then, suddenly, I heard a whispered rustling noise I couldn't place right away. It was my joints. Turning to dust.

  22. This is the Bones version of Decker Lugstampf. Am slowly getting into Victorian Sci fi minis as a break from the hundreds of fantasy ones that I have. Could also use him as an enchanter for Frostgrave though... Simply painted with a dark grey primer, black wash, then brass and gun metal highlights.

  23. So I painted her as my player character in an upcoming game, the tricky thing was that she had some pretty bad burn scars. I tried to paint a burn scar on her shoulder holding the wand, I am not sure how well it came out. As always let me know what you all think of her. I feel I should also apologize for the photo quality, I am trying to get something set up for decent pictures.

  24. Oy! What - a - day. Had to pick up Mamas new chunk of Ice this afternoon. Trip down to Tustin was OK but the freeways going the other direction were not just jammed but stop-and-go jammed. Did not look like things were going to be easy getting home. Took 5 hours 59 minutes run time on car to go 169.8 miles, with over 90 percent of that on the freeways. But Mama is happy with her new ring and dinner at my favorite spaghetti joint was delicious. I see that all the Reaper Kickstarter goodies are either landed in Texas or on the water. This is good news. GEM Who is

  26. Yup. I don’t care that there were no pictures today. I only wanted to get confirmation that the container made it safely out of China before the new year.

  27. I mean, it's not like casseroles are difficult if I had a crock pot I imagine they'd be even easier. I had this weird dream where Dwayne (the rock) Johnson was a wizard and he was fighting the forces of evil, which was lead by Cate Blanchett as a necromancer. There was a pretty rad castle in it too. Kept getting bigger. Or it was just bigger on the inside. I guess I woke up before I met the time lord.

  28. I painted the Bones Black, Bones, and Wizkids owlbears as Great Horned Owls. This is the Bones owlbear. My husband calls him the crazy chicken. He is a little on the scrawny side and more than a bit manic. His face reminds me of Animal from the Muppets.

  29. Hi folks, It's been awhile since I posted, and since I've been painting online with friends a lot more, I figured it was time to get back to it! Painted this one via Twitch livestream the other night when someone in chat suggested a freehand pattern similar to a marsh frog (to go with the "bog" theme). While I can't take credit for the idea, we took the concept and ran with it-- I think the freehand really makes him stand out! Below is a frog stock photo I pulled for general reference. The hardest part was picking a random pattern to draw on the wings and mirroring it

  30. I have had some VMA Signal Red (metallic) gathering dust for quite a while, so this morning I decided to try it out. Three hours later (including finding and shaking the paint) I have a complete test subject. I think that given the time to really work with it a person could do a decent TMM red with it. As is, I have a tabletop ready dwarf.

  32. He kept rolling extremely high numbers, so one of the other players made a joke about it. Then one of his opponents said he wanted to try his dice. The guy got really touchy so I said I wanted to see them. He refused, so I told him he would either use my dice or be out of the game. He refused and I ejected him. Only the second time I have had to remove a player in 20+ years of running at cons.

  35. Yesterday, I made a mold from the original and injected 15 wax copies tonight. Here is one of the copies in the mold: Then I put the copies on a wax tree. I'll be investing that in a few minutes and will cast it in silver tomorrow. Each one will be about a half ounce of silver.

  38. Well, I guess it's an Acquisition as I was billed for it today. Got the Ship package from Starship III Kickstarter for 3D printers. Still don't have a printer but it turns out a gamer at one of my LGS's has one and loves starships in a Starfinder game, so we may work something out!

  41. I like Gauth too. He’s one of my favourite dragons because he is so different. In fact since Bones 1 was first announced I had been pestering ReaperBryan for Gauth in Bones, to which he’d reply wouldn’t you like something better? And then we got Nethy and Kaly and Wyrmgear and all the other great Bones dragons. But none of them were Gauth. Finally after Bones 3 came and went with still no Gauth I gave up and ordered the metal version through Reapers Online store. I was glad I did cause it wasn’t long after that, that the big metal dragons were pulled from production.

  45. Whew! Sorry it's been a while. It was finals week, valentines day, and GBO's birthday this week. Didn't leave a lot of time for progress. And the work I did was a little disheartening. I think I've reached the point where I'm getting bored and want it to be done. Which is not a great place to be. So I'm going to update, get my head on right, and get ready for the long haul. So, my test pour came out level, but had a weird void in it. Which means I need to do some research h into troubleshooting in case I have a void in my final cast. Can I pour into it? Can I make it look like I me

  46. I have 'a few' of the smallest size of those clamps... Be very careful when clamping foamcore as it's very easy to apply more pressure than needed with them. (use scrap pieces of foamcore to pad out where the clamp grips) Just beautiful.

  47. Hotel nice and cozy. Family involved in “Intergenerational Fandom” panel this evening. Got some books (All Systems Red - finally I can read the Murderbot Diaries!). Hotel restaurant packed but fortunately the kids love room service. Husband met one of our gaming buddies from college in the elevator.

  50. Their oldest maps, and some of their newest, are designed to be plopped right over the existing map. Some are half the size of the HeroQuest board, and the newer ones are the same size as the HeroQuest board.Look for 'HeroicQuest' . They even have a free sample - Torchlit Dungeon 1 (Torchlit Dungeon 2 is about $3.) The newer maps are very, very nice. Now dip it in chili peppers and unsweetened chocolate! In this case it is a beef mole - two pots not just for volume, but because folks have different tolerances fo
