  1. Number 3! Frumitty is supposed to resemble Mort from Madagascar. Also, check out his pockets, HE HAS STRAWBERRIES! How cute is that? I love that Jason Wiebe took the time to sculpt little strawberries. :D C&C is always welcome!

  2. I just love this little guy!! I've been on a 'woodland critter' kick for a bit, and I'm so glad to have finished this guy. I'm working on a diorama for Reapercon, so that's why he doesn't appear to be based. Let me know what you think! C&C is always welcome and appreciated!

  3. This little guy is number 2 of 3 posts for now. He was a lot of fun to paint up! His little spine-dies were fairly interesting to paint! C&C is always welcome!

  6. Brigid is quite proud of herself - she has learned how to crawl... upside down. And make monster noises. The cats are not amused. The dog realized that it put her face at tongue height. (Raa *ack!* Sputter, sputter....) The Auld Grump

  7. This was my free mini of the month I got from reaper, starting to luv the bones black as where I don't really care for the regular bones. I was also fun to paint a monster instead of my usual character mini's. Was also surprised how huge it actually was.

  8. Poor old Linus. Doomed to wander the earth forever with a sweater tied around his waist while lugging an invisible satchel*. The newspaper is an image I downloaded months ago and decided to use as the base originally looked like Linus was shambling across an ashtray. After supergluing the paper to the base and daubing it with Blood For The Blood God I remembered that I'm a newspaper designer and could have knocked up a front page on our editorial system. But it's Saturday. Apologies for the photos, they were taken with my phone. *The sculpt has a strap over its right shoulder that doesn't attach to anything...

  12. I had a realization. A cheesy and hilarious realization. What do you call a group of boys who hang out with a female leader and defer to her? A reverse harem. That's what my D&D group is. I have my own reverse harem. Complete with a "favorite" (Sir Cyr, duh). But y'know, sometimes they have to encounter a saucy wench, and then I have to be a temporary flirt with any in the group. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

  13. Hung out with friends. They're gonna be here all week, but they're gonna be camping out on the river they said. So on Monday I'm going tubing down the river with them since it's my day off this week. We're gonna get dropped off a few miles upstream, float a cooler full of beer, and spend about 3 hours drinking and drifting down river. Also, I found out that my buddy made about $90 off of the D&D module he wrote and published on the DM's Guild last fall. He put it up for $3, and it sold around 60-70 copies. Which means DM's Guild takes at least 50% as their cut. Kind of steep if you ask me, but at least he made something. We were trying to get him to do another one, but he kept saying he wasn't going to because he wouldn't make any money off of it. His girlfriend, who did most of the art for it, countered by saying she tried selling stuff online and no one bought it at all so he's already got a leg up on her there, and $90 over 9 months isn't bad for a first time on a niche product.

  14. Hi all! So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera. This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize. This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series. I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful. The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use. Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar. And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk: So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon! Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate! Mark

  15. Just my containers from Reaper bones 4. Done quickly and detailed up with Green Stuff World decals. I have some touch ups yet as the oils and white spirits caused some chipping in my base coat but pretty much done. Hope you like

  16. This is the biggest "miniature" I've ever painted. I would not have even looked at it if someone hadn't asked me to paint it. It was a great challenge and a great learning experience. I love his slightly goofy "intoxicated" facial expression.

  17. There are so many ways this could be answered. Favorite based on meeting them? Favorite based on style? Favorite based on whose sculptures do I have the most of in my collection? On that last one I have no idea. It would be an objective way to gauge which sculptor is my favorite if I knew whose work I had purchased the most often. But I have never tracked that. I like this answer. And this one. And this one.. And this one... If this was the phrasing of the question: I am Adding One to the list of candidates for favorite sculptor every one else has already mentioned. And that would be @malefactus: Because Shrooms Rule! Nothing completed but I have collected pieces and parts to scratch build mad science flying machines. ...or Sky galleons. ...maybe Æther Flyers. ...or Armored Zeppelins, etc. In this aspect we are kindred spirits @Pingo although I don’t actually have a Nautilus shell in my collection of potential sky galleon components. I have a built few of those. A Grumman F6F, there was a US Navy Jet kit. I don’t have any. Too far in the past.

  18. Hi everyone, here's 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman. This model was sculpted by Ben Siens. It’s mounted on a 40mm round base and was painted with Reaper's MSP acrylics paint. After a major earthquake shook the mountain range of western Zenitonia, Skrug and his clan had no other choice then move. Their entire lair was destroyed in a dreadful collapse. Dozens of Bugbear died or were trapped under the unstable rubbles, survivors had to leave. Has Hruggek abandoned his fateful worshipers? For, after traveling by night and hiding in a valley of the Vermillion Hills, the horde had to stop by the Lynx River torrents. There, they were decimated by a group of adventurers passing by looking for Belladonna berries. Only two families managed to escape the slaughter crossing the river on a makeshift raft. Belladonna or Wolfsbane berries are very toxic, they are also an essential ingrediant to concoct the cure against lycanthropy. But this is another story.

  19. So I painted today. Sort of. I painted 3 spoons. I decided to finally test put my mirror chrome and holographic paints. So I primed, sprayed gloss black, and then one spoon of each and one of holographic on top of chrome. The chrome turned out bad. I think I over applied it. The holographic turned out great. The holographic on chrome was dumb and even with the really hazy and bad chrome you couldn't see any color shifting. I didn't think the holographic on chrome would work all that well, but I wanted to try it anyway. I was disappointed in the chrome, but I've seen what people can do with it so the only thing I can think is that it was operator error. Also, it is very easy to accidentally scrape some of it off as I was warned. I tried to buff it a little bit with a paper towel, because I know you're supposed to buff it to get the real mirror shine, and it scratched it a ton. I know paper towels aren't the softest things ever, but I didn't think they would just tear through the paint the way they did. But the holographic? The holographic on gloss black is very pretty. I have to wonder how it will look on top of other colors. Obviously lighter colors won't benefit much, but darker colors like a deep purple or blue should do fine. Also, I need better ventilation if I'm gonna be working with these. They're lacquers, and just spraying 3 plastic spoons made me regret it a bit. That's some strong solvent odors there. So before I do any more with them I'm definitely going to need to redo my workspace. And they're so thin that good airbrush control is a must. I didn't think I was pulling the trigger that much and it was a giant cloud of paint coming out of the brush. Definitely a Krome-use only thing from now on. I'm gonna need that trigger stop. They're also a bit of a pain to clean out of the brush. The metallic fleck is so small and there's so much of it that I'm almost positive that I didn't get it all.

  27. Does anybody know any sites that have hex map tiles similar to the old Mighty Empires game by GW in the early nineties? Megan is planning to use them for her hex crawling Pathfinder Northlands game, but any expansions we could make on it would be nice. So far, Megan has laid out part of the coast - but it is pining for the fjords.... Seems like a solid idea - until we explore a hex, we don't know what is in it. I have suggested putting in the nearest mountains as well, while leaving everything else empty until we get there. (The thing about mountains is that they don't exactly sneak up on you. ) I am also sending her to RedBox Games... no one does Northerners like Tre Manor. Though it looks like a lot of stuff I remember them having is now gone...? My own character is from Mantic's Northern Alliance line, I think - maybe with a weapon swap, unless Megan wants me to find a weapon similar to what he is carrying*.... Arnulf Twice-Married - Ranger/Paladin. Married, with two daughters, noted for marrying the same woman twice. Not as powerfully muscled as he once was, but making up for it with cunning born of middle age. (Yes, I am starting a fighter type in middle age - now that he is aging, he wants to leave a legacy, and a name that his daughters can be proud of. He was not a hero, but wishes to become one before age claims him. A follower of Wolund the Rider, he is a blacksmith by trade, and was raised to the saddle since he was three years old.) Based loosely on characters in the Kiev Cycle - if you have never read any of the old Russian and Slavic hero tales... I can highly recommend them. I first read one of the tales back in the early... eighties, I think - in Lin Carter's Dragons, Elves, and Heroes - a book of the precursors to modern fantasy. I have never seen characters that hew closer to the archetypal D&D paladin - he even has the danged horse. *** One of my coworkers asked Megan how we got together... Megan's reply was an in depth description of the first Pathfinder game I ever ran for the Border's Crew. (Less strange a reply than you might think - the woman she is talking to is also a gamer... and is dating her own DM. ) The Auld Grump * Seriously, I have no idea what that weapon is supposed to be....

  28. Burnt Sienna. Really good for leathers, add white and it makes a nice array of skin tones, thinned works really well for brown rocks, very nice base for red and auburn hair. Straight out of the bottle. I prefer the Black Watch tartan. Plaid is OK, but I think I prefer Delta Ceramcoat.

  30. I was also out for gaming on free RPG day. Went to game store called The Source in St Paul. Really nice store and so I acquired a few things: A wiz kids beholder (surprise!) Some wizkids crossbow rangers (destined for frostgrave) 4 citadel contrast shades (just released today) Some army painter rugged tufts The ravensburger game El Dorado And some additional birthday presents for my son and niece . And I actually got to play a game of 5th ed Did. Overall it was a great day!

  31. Oops. Free RPG Day was seen as sufficient excuse to prowl gaming stores (and other suitable locations) for the purpose of scouting new places to play... And as a result, we have acquired... tea, because tea is awesome (and they might have space for us! Yay!) Citadel paints *hackphooey*, including Agrax Earthshade, two pots of 'Contrast'; Shyish Purple and Ork Flesh, and a pot of Sycorax Bronze. I also grabbed a pot of 'Ard coat to play with., and a pot of P3's Deathless Metal. And, because that wasn't enough, I also nobbled the Young Green and Young Copper Dragons, and some piles of treasure. Oops. >.> Oh, yes. And a good pile of Free RPG Day materials. The new goblin adventure is lolsnrt

  41. Well, they ay some days you win some, other days you lose some. Me versus the moon round two... No real luck with my camera. ..my cheating phone in the other hand, since it can do eyepiece projection... At least caught the moon, through the biggest refractor telescope that the Edmonton RASC has set up in their observatory. Sadly, Jupiter on the other hand... I'll say my phone laughed at me, because wow, that was a giant ball of flare. Feet hurt a LOT, but standing pretty much still on concrete talking for two and a half hours does that... Doubly so when you factor in its a 40 minute walk I neach direction. Got to see some stuff I've never seen before though, so there is that. Now I'm all conflicted between astrophotography and visual astronomy.... O_o

  44. Usually the sculptor whose mini I’m painting at the moment. Today it’s Dennis Mize, as it was all last week. But a bit earlier it was Julie Guthrie and when I was painting old Hackmaster figures it was Jim Johnson. I guess if somebody asked me “If you were stuck on a desert island and you had all the paint you could ask for as well as quality brushes, but for the rest of your island life you would only have access to a single sculptor, who would it be?” That would be a much harder question. Out of old school sculptors I really have a fondness for the infamous Partha trio, Mize, Meier and Guthrie. In the actual seventies and eighties, I think I could say that Tom Meier was my favorite, but as I came back to the hobby I really gained and appreciation for Dennis Mize and Julie Guthrie. Two other great old school sculptors that I really like are Jim Johnson and Dave Summers. The nowaday sculptors I’d probably have to say Patrick Keith does some really cool stuff. I also like Bob Olley, who would also classify as old school but he just came to mind. This is starting to become a little harder than I thought it was going to be. I’m giving up now.
