  2. Not sure if this guy has a real name, all I could see was paizo and the year on the bottom of the base. I didn't want the spell to be fire, but more of a holy light. I think it is pretty close to what I was going for. Added a couple of clear wizkids potion bottles to the base too.

  3. Really difficult to assemble, but one of the coolest models I have painted this year. I had to sculpt some wisps of smoke to help keep the tail connected to the scroll. Not fond of pinning and did that to the head/neck to the bottom portion of the character.

  4. Sea Hag or Swamp Witch? was hoping with the colors it would be usable for either setting.

  5. Casually casting a nasty spider spell. I sculpted the spider, luckily my kids were there to remind me of how many legs they have.

  7. I think we mighta been hacked, the site certificate looks super sketchy now (issued today to a site called "betterbirthdoula.org") EDIT: Disregard, Kit's fixed it. We weren't hacked.

  8. I don't know, and I don't know. Right now I'm wondering where the heck I am, because I apparently stumbled into an alternate universe. I've got 12 bottles of Warsteiner Dunkel, I had a good day at work that included free food and a balloon sword fight with Spiderman, and once I get a bit more energy and a shower I'm heading to a party with friends. It's been a really weird week. I could get used to weeks like this...

  9. From Spring to Spring, I will be concentrating on Goblins of various sorts with a few more or less related distractions. These are the first batch: Gander O'Peek's Pikes & Associates. Here are the Lads are posing bravely in the Spooky Woods somewhere near Heep's Mushroom Brewery & Bat Poop Caverns: The rear rank: Front rank: ...from the rear: The Heroes...so to speak: There you have them in all their glory(?).

  10. He was never as bad as he pretended to be. I just realized that the giants are ROOTING for us! Challenging us was honoring us, not trying to drive us off! This really IS them being friendly.

  11. Oh four foot snake! Jon won the wrestling match, but the giant UNTIED HIS LOINCLOTH in the battle, then ran off with it after he had her pinned. She's waving it like a flag! And ALL the giants are cheering and handing Jon's character a beer, slapping him on the back. I thought she was humilating him, but it looks more like the giants think this is a BIG win for us. Now he faces death by snu snu?

  12. Man, today just got better. Two business owners bought me food. One guy bought me 6 wings, just slapping his money on the counter when I went to get my wallet, the other gave me smoked pulled pork. The pork was offered yesterday to the whole office if anyone wanted to stop by for it. And lemme tell you, that pork was DELICIOUS!

  14. This is the third or fourth piece from the Kickstarter I’ve painted. I really loved this sculpt, soooo much detail! I only wish it were bigger! looking at the pictures, I may have to retouch some of the protruding bones as they need some shadowing. All in all I’m quite happy how it turned out. The pillars I used in the base are not included in the Kickstarter (for those who were getting a raise in blood pressure) They were gifted to me from a friend experimenting with his 3D printer. As always C&C are more than welcome. I hope you like it

  15. Both are true for about 80% of the giants Just before ending for the night they got a challenge from Mr. 20%. Both on the unfriendly and evil counts. I had fun with him - he began with bungling his accusations 'They have come to take our cowrie shells! They have come to take our obsidian! They have come to seduce our women!' - and pointing accusingly at Jon's barbarian. (The friendly giant lady had all but carried him off on her shoulder... There was no doubt about whose idea was the friendly romp on the black sands.) The 80% are looking for trade relations - they have no metals. They are welcoming the Europeans PCs because they think that they can benefit from trade. (This will remain true as long as the Dreamer is the Regent - after that it is a coin flip.) And the party has noticed the tell-tale strands of a web belonging to the larger (but friendlier) scary, scary spider people. It seems someone has been manipulating things in favor of open relations.... (Let us just say that the old chief has developed an appreciation of friendly large driders.) The chief's son is Mr. 20%, and thinks that his time as chief has arrived. Yes I was! Grrrr! The Auld Grump -

  16. We are in "friendly" negotiations with a tribe of fire giants that live near the evil spider people that the good spider people want us to rescue. Just being in the area is doing damage. Jon's barbarian is enlarged and is wrestling one of the female fire giants as part of our gauntlet. We need to earn respect while melting into big old puddles of sweat. Worse, the giant is being a bit overly friendly with Jon while they wrestle. I think whichever of them wins, they are going to head behind a volcano for some personal time. Not picking up on evil from them, but definitely a warrior culture, Maori fire giants? With a goddess that is on this world and active. That's what I said! I know his heart was in the right place, but they are PAYING HIM TO RUN GAMES! And it will look good on his resume! EXACTLY! Don't worry love, it was just as confusing from the outside as I'm sure it was from the inside.

  17. Indeed, he's pretty much a rockstar. He says the weird certificate was because he was changing something and the certbot keyed it to the wrong domain. So no need to panic (further). Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

  18. Terezinya was painted up to be a vampire character in my dnd game, the rest are fairly self explanatory. The translucent green Bones were given a coating of Grass Green India Ink and then had details highlighted out. They're retained their translucent quality while having better detail visibility.

  19. Speaking of dependent, we are pretty much not depending on McDonald's anymore for their sausage egg McMuffins:) I got one of those cool Egg rings, Toast up some Thomas's english muffins, get some sausage patties from Walmart, throw on some sliced cheese and viola!

  20. Today is Hubby's birthday. I'm going to make a cake for him and homemade Taco Bell breakfast crunch wraps. If I can get the sauce right, we will no longer be dependent on Taco Bell for his crunch wrap cravings

  21. Took these and kids ran off with a couple of plastic dinosaurs that will never be seen again. Will add these once I figure out a way to get them all into the box. Couple of things in the box may need to go. I broke down the packaging of a couple of items after this pic was taken too.

  22. They're worth the money, but if possible try to get them at a slow time. I was waiting on a restock that was delayed because of diverted supplies as relief for the California wildfires, and as a result didn't get quite the component variety I'd hoped for. By which I mean I ate a godless amount of zapplesauce and MRE bag pudding. Still complete nutritionally, just repetitive. Normally it should be a bit more mixed.

  23. Twenty-five pounds of Bonesy goodies! The chicken-hut is pretty stable, and boy are those talons pointy. Bonus in the paint department as I received both sets instead of just the new colors. I didn't crack open the Dreadmere box or the Modern Scenics to review. Most everything else was pretty good. Most. On the down side, Mumlak's adze/axe broke. It looks like it should be an easy fix, while worth noting, it's not worth making a complaint. My tusks and ears looked to be well done on him. But, dang, he's huge. I'm also missing the burning braziers for the cemetery posts. I'll probably send the email off to Reaper tomorrow. I almost hate doing it for just two packs of braziers. Not bad, though, all things considered.

  24. Took the daughter off for her puppy charity donation (school project) then she got her ears’ pierced. Not at the same place or even related. Then had Chik-fil-a for lunch, quick walk through a “French market” which was just antiques and some regular craft booths, and then the Apple store for window shopping. Wife wants a new phone because she is constantly running out of storage (only (!!!) 16Gb) But she doesn’t want to pay for it. Home for a quick bit and I decided to back up my phone. Then it was off to watch Avengers Endgame. Even called my grandma. So I was going to say it’s too early to go to bed since I haven’t “done anything” today. Except it’s 9pm, and the day was pretty packed.

  25. Thanks for the warning. It now appears the page links are working again, among other things that were broken. Quick service from Kit today.

  26. Test post cuz my browser seems to have gone bonkers Oh okay, I thought it was just me. I'm also having trouble moving to the next page sometimes. Also, I tried to log out/in on Chrome to see if that fixed the problem, but now it won't let me log back in. I click Submit and the page just refreshes with nothing happening. I'm posting this from Firefox. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

  31. I started working on the face and then on the belt items. I decided to do the charm as Ivory, and I'll give it a NMM gold trim in the end. For the bag, I went for a faint sackcloth hatching. It's kind of hard to make out in the photo, so I may emphasize it more in the future. I love that there's a ham hock on her belt! I wanted to finish her tonight, but I started to lose focus. Rather than force it, I decided to stop for the day and pick her back up this week!

  32. Yes. If you are using Firefox it could be related to their system wide problem that reared its quite nasty head early this AM. If not, then poor Kit has yet another item heaped upon his currently overflowing plate. GEM I see things are fixed on the Reaper Forums. All Hail Mighty KIT! Slayer of Giant Website Vermin.

  33. Yeah, the weird cert was definitely me. A multi-domain box and the Let's Encrypt certbot keyed it to the wrong domain. Oops. Glad it's working again. And secure, to boot.

  34. Sorry, guys. Trying to get a SSL connection configured. Didn't realize invision board was going to be stupid and redirect login back to a http endpoint. Trying to find the proper configuration setting now. Edit: found 'em. Try to log in now. Let me know if you can't.

  36. Heroic Maps is celebrating May the Fourth with a 75% Off sale on their SF maps over to RPGNow/DriveThru - there are some pretty nice ones. $0.63... for the Falcon's smaller cousin. (I already have this one, along with one that seems to have run into a mountain...) I don't do much SF gaming, these days, other wise I might be buying them out right now. Some are good for simulating Imperial entanglements. The Auld Grump Damn you brain, I do not want an idea for a game with Imperial Stormtroopers vs Aliens.... The Auld Grump

  42. As spiritualists are experts dealing with ghosts and such I was trying for a subtle ethereal feel to the model. Think I did ok on her but wouldn't be against advice on how to improve things.

  43. Finished off the last of these (still have more on the sprue but no plans for them right now) this morning. First up a group photo. The old lady on the right wasn't finished when I took it. I included her just because. I hadn't planned on painting this morning. The apothecary "Granny". Love this model. The markswoman. The barbarian. I'm thinking I'll call her "Freya" because she really reminds me of that character on the tv show Norsemen. The templar. The tracker. An infantrywoman. Another infantrywoman.

  45. So it goes without saying I got distracted yet again. I blame Mordheim on Xbox, well that and a low will save on Bones IV. Instead of working on my backlog I added to it instead. I fully admit I'm that guy, I waited two years to paint a bunch of generic guardsmen, and a few dice. My Imperial Guard even got in on the fun too. I told my buddies in our gaming group chat that I bought some new vehicles.

  46. Huh. I blocked mine, on both Chrome and Firefox, but yeah my problems started as soon as I saw the little pop-up asking whether to allow notifications or not (which is weird because I set it to block back when the forums changed over to the new format). Maybe a browser update broke stuff? Also this not being able to use the page numbers to navigate back and forth within a thread is super annoying. I'm having to get clever with going back to the main page, then clicking on the thread I want. In other news, the post auto-merge feature appears to be functioning just fine. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

  48. So yesterday I couldn't convince myself to paint. Not doing well today either... But my light box came in and I wanted to play with it. So here's the milk maid again. You can definitely tell she was a speed paint...but she is definitely good enough for tabletop+

  50. A woman at arms. Wife and kids asked me what the shield was supposed to be. I started out as a lightning bolt and it evolved into whatever that is. Crossbow. My favourite of the bunch the knight. Looking at them now I feel like putting some more work in on the shading on the plastic models. I was just trying to get them finished. The metals I took a bit more time with and I'm fairly satisfied. Another small project finished.
