  3. When I was at Reapercon this year a friend asked me to get and paint a chibi for his lady from the Midknight Heroes booth. Well, that ballooned to doing several Christmas gifts for friends and family. This succubus is going to my sister in law. She asked for a color scheme from Panty and Stocking (a very not safe for work anime I highly recommend) and this is what I came up with. I'll be posting work in progress shots on the rest of this years chibis here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/97154-christmas-chibi-mega-thread/

  5. According to https://www.pbs.org/articles/2021/10/how-to-watch-its-great-pumpkin-charlie-brown-on-pbs/ The Charlie Brown Halloween show will be on PBS at 6:30 PM CDT tonight. I remember someone posting about it earlier, but my research at the time couldn't confirm it. The show streams only on Apple TV+, not PBS.

  6. Barry wasn't gaining any weight, so I threw a sweater on him. It seems to have worked. This batch of kittens seems to have some not entirely unjustified concerns regarding the edibility of kibble. So I've been meeting them halfway with a chicken and rice concoction to bulk out their feed without having to invest in my own can recycling facility. Experiments in ethically sourced toupees have reached their predictable conclusion: Nope.

  7. I have settled in for a quiet weekend on the road. I brought my travel paint kit, slightly reloaded with respect to colors this trip (to include a Zorn palette quartet) and set stuff up at the desk. As of this break, I have 9 orcs, a human on foot, a human on horse, and the Bones 5 monster thingy done. I can only take things as far as a preliminary brush varnish coat, as I didn’t bring basing supplies. I ought to see how small a package I could stick basic basing into sometime. I’m now sorry I didn’t bring a handful of zombies; I’m close to having the first three R

  8. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). I've been wanting to do a group/series of hellborn/tiefling figures for fun but seems whenever I went to order something they would slip my mind and I get something else. Ah but reaper cursed me and gave me a free hellborn figure and now I can tell I'm gonna be ruined.

  12. Hey y'all! Had to skip 40 pages because I just don’t have the mental energy for it, but I wanted to share some happy news. My job search has finally paid off and I’ve been offered an accounting position with an organization that helps people! I’m so excited about! It represents an approximate 10k increase in my yearly income, it has benefits, and my work will be helping people!

  20. AlonTey - yes the main inspiration for the coloring was rattlesnakes. I also looked at various moths for ideas for the wing pattern. With regard to the head coloration, that wasn't planned. I initially painted all all beige, but while I was doing the dark back scales I decided to splash some ochre on the head for shading, and I liked the effect. Then I decided it might have a red patch as a sort of display crest so I added more red washes.

  22. Not from today (it's from my first time out with my modified camera), but... Hope this counts :P And if that doesn't count, well... Here, have something cute from the second time I took the camera out, because I haven't gone out with the 720nm filter yet. Both taken with a full spectrum modified Canon IXUS 185 and a KolariVision IR Chrome filter. I suspect it's going to take me a while to not only get into the flow of taking infrared photographs, but also for editing them. They're just a touch more complicated than editing visual photography.

  23. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). Normally when I prep mini's I do about six or so of them at a time, this month I found myself preping a baker's dozen...ouch. O well got plenty for next month too...hehe, anyways when sorting for something to paint she caught my eye, I still can't believe how really dainty she is.

  24. Still needs some basing, but he's off to a good start. Interesting how this worked out. I did dry brushing on the first two layers of greens. Then went back in with regular brush and layers, but didn't think it was loud enough. What this? A huge stock pile of BCA pink? Better put it to use. I mixed that into the alien green and base, then touched it up with pink to add some warmth (i mean as warm as aghast should be #dead) in the highlights. Pink and green were a fun combo. I'm not totally into the tattered shirt colors the more i look at

  28. Oh BLEEP I missed this round! Well, I'll have tons of very random objects for next round! I've at least 2 and likely 3 KSs due in the next month or so. Also, I have 1 cat whisker that I can make a few little detail "brush" thingies with, so that will be good and different. I might even have enough stuff to make 2 boxes by next round! Anywho, I've been enjoying all the pictures. GF

  29. Yep! 3DAD has that ogre. Eight feet of vampire slaying muscle and bone. With a scary assed 4 barrel scattergun. Playing Mordheim tonight, so of anyone is playing witch hunters, we will let them know. That doggo would make a good Scooby.

  30. Spent most of the weekend indoors or running errands. So I didn't see much in the way of spooky. But the FLGS put up fake spiderwebs for Halloween. That kind of counts...

  32. Inspiring take on the model! The colors remind me of a desert snake but the splashes of blue still cause me to read it as a blue dragon. What was the thought process on the fleshy bits on the head? Just a nice eye drawing bit of contrast or was it trying to line up with a real animal?

  34. I'm trying to do too many things at once tonight. I keep telling myself that I need to get things cleaned up before I get to painting, as I won't do anything but that when I start on it and I want to get back to my blogs. The summer heat fried my brain, so they've been neglected for months. And with NaNo coming up, it helps to get back to putting words down on a sheet, you know? Of course, I got to thinking that I should get a post out on Halloween for the gaming blog, which led me to remember that I never did finish up the stories of the Ferner Five, the greatest posse to ever ride the t

There's also a sleeping Eevee Quick! Plamo kit in there, or at least was - it's now in my backlog shelf of inspirational doom... A few LBX kits. Fenrir is mine, Hunter is hubby's. That's right, mechs with not only big guns, but TAILS too! An assortment of boring yet useful things I didn't take pictures of: - 3x Tamiya Extra Thin - 2x Tamiya Extra Thin Quick Set - Ta

  36. For some magical logistics reason, these per released in Canada today..... Not sure if anywhere else has them yet. UK, got the Spider Droids and Fluttercraft last week, which we still don't have. And the US doesn't have any of that, or even the Wookiees, Yoda, Magnaguards or Super Tac. And they didn't release the Infantry Support Platform, which is the Clone's equivalent heavy for this release.... Weird. Ah well, I have new tanks, so Woot!

  43. I finally had the opportunity to get to a pending fun project this weekend. I heard about the Zorn palette, a limited set of four colors, a while back, and wanted to try this. So, this is the set of hobby paints I chose. The key is that the black has to be a blue-black, that will give a sort of faded denim when mixed with white. Here’s some playing around on the wet palette. Considering that the only brilliant color you’ll get is red, I thought that the best fit would be something medieval, where the subdued colors would look natural.
