  1. Love then. a good pun is its own reword.
  2. For December Rework White Dragon - begin forward progress. 2 larger bones ( Frog demon & ogre) paint some NPCs - plague doc, any from dreadmere. Create Ornament out o Christmas Wrapping Dragon. finish at least 5 do end of year list and Photo shoot.
  3. I dont like where he is going, I think I need to drop the pastel green and go full pink/white - like the other images above. It is currently so ugly looking, and so large and area, I just dont want to go back. Here is current state. He is violating both speed and beauty tenants of my art goals.
  4. December 1: Let’s start easy, What are you working on this month? Is it different than last month? hmm I still have to paint 1 more dragon to hit my yearly goal, but I hit a stumble on a wizkid gargantuan dragon - I don't like the colors im using. White is hard. so technically im still working on him. WIP I just rummaged around in my box of unpainted minis this morning and returned with the ogre chief in bones black, and a frog demon. I should actually apply paint to the plague doctor as well. some of the Dreadmere villagers might get thrown into my Que as filler.
  5. This guy has some serious Druidcraft. His mace/warhammer was clearly grown to serve as a weapon. No idea where he got the loincloth, perhaps that is why there is no Hyena Avatar. the thing on his back is clearly supposed to be a NMM sword (not my finest shiny) - but what if it was huge jug of liquid instead? Its not like he needs a backup weapon. I actually have a second copy of this figure, although I can't say why, he is only my third fav of this series (behind Hippo & Ape) while im thinking of it, the next loincloth should be identifiable Lion or Leopard perhaps. and the second copy should also be weapon swapped out to a staff.
  6. I once threw out my back moving a vacuum. I found that regular strength training at the gym (now a backpack filled with textbooks) really helped. Really I only lift weights to avoid hurting myself in regular life.
  7. I like Snow. its one of my favorite parts of living in Colorado. It falls frequently, then warms up and melts sometimes lingering a few snow banks or shaded areas. sometimes I shovel the walk and snowtires are only necessary in the mts. When I was growing up (in a different state) the snow was perfect for building snowmen only once every few years. Here it is perfect 3-6 times each winter. I build a lot, last Tuesday for instance:
  8. Finished a dragon - the tiny wrapping christmas dragon - I didn't like the way the white was going and it was abandoned. for now. I will try and finish it in December. Finished 5 villagers. and the Rhino beetle (bones4) that I bought this month.
  9. So This little guy was a lot of fun to paint. If I cant do free-hand stripes on a tiny flat surface I need to get more ambitious. The Plan is to put him inside a clear retangular dice box and hang him from the tree. He is so tiny he would be lost inside a full ball ornament.
  10. Pulled the Trigger. - and even some additional shopping for BF sales around didnt create any buyers remorse. that is a massive box. But I think I only really need the demon. ill paint it up for a contest one of theses days. thanks for the all the encouragement. Now ill have to find some other large mini to drool over...
  11. I picked up the card pack, glad I got it before it sold out. I have not intention of adding anything else to wave 4. but I am excited by the promise of the GC shipping soon. it looks like it is a very similar box size to the original game. I haven't played the game in a year or so, but I have every intention of painting more of the wonderful minis. Dragon King Dragon Tyrant Dung Beetle Knight Sunstalker pinup still are waiting their turns. Nightmayer Ram (one of my favs) jumped the Que this year, when I bought just the figure in one of the sales.
  12. We had an Indian Thanksgiving Feast! Tiki Marsala, Koruma Tandori Chicken Fried Momo (dumplings) Naan Bread something with Spinach and Cheese (which I love but cant name) pumpkin and Chess ('Jes ? ) Pie - these were the only thing I cooked, the rest was takeout. getting the Indians switched again appeals to my sense of Whimsy. --- So on a different note I need some enablement advice. I brought in some money on a side gig, and have a higher than normal hobby budget. I have been eying the Lord Of Change (GW) from the first time I saw it. It is a 9" tall winged demon of horrible beauty. Insert existing attachment But I have a fair number of large wonderful minis that I already avoid painting. I haven't painted anything this year larger than about 80mm. I like having them painted but not the process. If I am going to spend over 100$ on one mini shouldn't it be a H*** YES! Perhaps it is just a phase, and the ambition to paint big will return, then I would have this guy waiting for me.. Advice?
  13. He is from the town of Beesbury. heraldic bees. I really had no idea what colors to use for him until the name of a town drifted through my head
  14. Pig-cart not included. The villager group from bones 4. a few may have had their own threads. this is why I didn't need the villagers of Bones5 although apparently I did add the prancing peacock KS, for just a few more people you would find in a tavern .
  15. What maginification levels do you use? the base Mag eyes comes with x1.6 and x2 x2.25 and x3 are also available.
  16. things continue here. Life is hard, but it could be worse. Wife is working from home, misses her coworkers but is fine working from home. She got a bonus for her help migrating other employees to remote work. The spawn are in remote school, Elder spawn is doing well - better than I expected in fact. Mini-spawn is in 1st grade, and I need to be with her 1-3 hours a day to keep her on track, and provide tech support, etc. My State is moving to heavy restrictions, I saw people in line outside Hobby lobby, with only a few being let in at a time, decided I didn't need the hobby stuff that bad. Costco is out of TP, and other stores have a limit per customer. Seriously this again?? there are lots of other restrictions, but really the only one I notice is the library going to curbside service, or allowing browsing. We have become pretty reclusive, I haven't eaten out, or gone to a inside entertainment since March. The heavy Saddness is having to cancel thanksgiving plans with my family - 3 households from different states, and one staying with a 4th Household. All In Rural Missouri where not wearing a mask is a badge of pride. My well-educated parents take lots of precautions, but the community is in denial. I still feel like we are missing a rare chance to see my brother-in-law while he is mostly healthy. He was diagnosed with the other big C this year, stage 4. I have known him since High school. But none of us felt safe traveling. So we will try Zoom, but my parents are going to end up in a parking lot near Library/McDonalds because their Farm has terrible internet.
  17. yah that is one powerful piece of TV. Haven't watched it since it aired live, but it may have been the first time I cried at a TV show.
  18. Question November 17th. You won several millions in the lottery, enough to last you a lifetime. How will you live your life from now on/what will you do with the money? hmm well I'm not working now .. and Iam mostly happy with the area we live in. so - buy a bigger house, likely within a mile. wife would probably continue to work - something large enough for a home office and a painting room. Move as little furniture as possible - most of it could be donated and replaced. Retain a Maid and Landscaping service. Figure out how much to give away to family & friends - 10% Mostly to those relatives trying to farm. and another 10% to charities, church and political causes. replace my 1999 Toyota with something electric. Plan more trips once the Plauge ends - Australia, Germany, Iceland, another Caribbean Vacation would all be on the table, once a year perhaps. The kids are old enough for trips to rock. I would not buy a house on a mountain. Denver is close enough. I have friends up there and I don't like the tradeoffs of isolation and wild fires for beauty. Although it is nice to visit.
  19. nice work! painting a mini this large is a great accomplishment. did you have any trouble with wing droop? thanks for reposting the images , I couldn't get the first set of links to work either,.
  20. hmm 7-11 am Frequently I work out, or get chores/shopping done. Or just cook breakfast for everyone.
  21. October Fires the weekend where the largest fire in colorado history and the second largest fire were burning at the same time. and 2 more fires started as well. Then cause Colorado it snowed 1-2 feet on top of them. just before Halloween.
  22. Keep in mind that most people don't paint them all. I take everything out and look at it, and do a quick inspection for missing pieces. then everything gets rebagged and stuck in a tote bin 1'x2'x1' approx. When I am done painting something it either fights for space in my small display cabinet. Or it joins the dragons on the mantle (where My mini spawn can play with it) or it goes in a red plastic craft box (One in picture, 5? others in the basement. both cases are orderd from amazon, I order new ones (using order history) as I have filled up old ones. I rarely pick colors or decide what order I am going to do more od a random looking around after I finish the last thing. - But I do like to finish the core set I tend to do small groups (3-6) with a similar theme, based on what I find interesting in the moment, or for a technique I want to practice. I dont wash and clean them till im ready to paint, and then do prep work on the model while I consider colors. (dragons are an exception they get more planning) see picture 2 I frequently look for inspirational pictures, especially for animals
