    Just went and looked that up and it appears I've got about half of that set sitting about already. Looks like I'm going to have to dig through Iron Winds stuff at Origins this year to see if I can find the rest. That could be a fun little scene to put together. Thanks!
  2. Gave this guy a quick paint so I could use him to muck about with basing. Something I've only recently started playing around with. I originally intended to give him blond hair but as I painted him I realized he's very... Cimmerian looking.
  3. Ok, here goes... 1. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84361-77503-temple-dragon/&tab=comments#comment-1785165 2.

Also, this may count as 2? 7 through 10: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84557-kobolds/ 11. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84607-77460-dwarf-butcher/&do=findComment&comment=1790281 12. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84625-77060-dragonman-warrior/&do=findComment&comment=1790795 13 through 20. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84672-snow-emergency-miniatures/&do=findComment&comment=1792144 And one of these is finger painted. Well, finger inked. But still. 21 (shelf of shame 3). http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84693-digga/ This fellow was on my shelf of shame (actually, cigar box of shame, but that works) 22. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84746-77345-mushroom-men-1-of-3/&tab=comments#comment-1794019 23 through 25. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84805-dark-elves/&do=findComment&comment=1795717 26. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84850-dinosaur/&do=findComment&comment=1796450 27 through 33. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84876-rpchallenge-minis/&do=findComment&comment=1797077 34 through 41. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84962-weekend-painting/ 42. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85096-goblin-henchman/ 43. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85088-johan-rumbleguts/&do=findComment&comment=1801652 44.

Thanks all for hosting an enjoyable challenge and checking out my odd little paint jobs!

    These are a couple from my shelf of shame. They're 1978 Ral Partha gargoyles now produced by Iron Wind Metals. I originally thought they were some sort of Imp and started painting them that way. Then I discovered what they were and put them aside until I could strip them and start over. Then I decided I liked them better as imps so I gave them each about 5 minutes of attention and now they're ready to start tormenting my players.
  5. Here's a quick paint of one of 3 different elf sorceress minis my wife got me for Christmas. She may be thinking about a new character.
  6. So let me see if I have this correct. To participate in this challenge I simply post all of my minis completed during the designated time frame with the appropriate title or tag (depending on manufacturer) in the Show Off section. Then, I come over here and provide a link to the completed figure in a convenient post (such as this one), and update that post as new miniatures are completed? In addition, I should point out if they meet any of the bonus challenges along the way. Did I get that right? Because if so I'll toss a few more of my completed miniatures from the past week up on the Show Off thread tonight and take part in this fun sounding challenge.
  7. Thanks. Please post the results of your samurai when you get them done. I've got a couple others sitting on the shelf I'm stuck on. Can always use more references for inspiration.
  8. I was trying to avoid something grim, so seeing you say that makes me think I got that across. Thanks.
  9. Or as I like to think of him, The Cherry Blossom Warrior. This guy has been on my shelf of shame with just his hands and face painted practically since Bones 2 was delivered. Finally came up with a color scheme I liked.
  10. CB Radio: Yes! My dad is a retired radio tech for the State Patrol. He insisted his kids knew how to use CB's when we got our licenses. Hobbies: Tabletop gaming (both board and RPG), beer brewing, photographing odd fungi, co-authoring journal articles every so often, and stomping around in streams and wetlands looking for interesting plants and critters. Thankfully I get paid to do the last one, I do it for free whenever I get the chance, but it's nice to do it for a living.
  11. Going off topic here for a second. The year this movie came out my wife arranged to get one of those pedal pubs that seat about 12 people for our city's Doo Dah parade (bunch of weirdos having fun) and everyone on board dressed up in their best homemade dystopian garb, grabbed an instrument and piled on. The rest of us dressed up in crazy outfits and decorated our bicycles with spikes and chains and such. Then we joined the parade as this scene from the movie. Only with pedal power instead of gas. Sadly, we did not have a flamethrower.
  12. In general I've never been too into sports as a whole. The one exception to that are the Cincinnati Reds. Don't know what it is, but not much makes me happier than going to Great American Ballpark to see a game. Or listening to them on the radio. Give me a warm summer day in the backyard brewing some beer while the Reds are on the radio and my lazy dogs are getting in the way and that's practically heaven. Now if they'd just get a winning season again.
  13. Unfortunately, my wife and I had to remove a pair of pine trees from our front yard two weeks before Christmas due to a fungal infection. So that was our gift to ourselves. Shame too, I loved those trees. But my folks got us a nice Le Cruset Dutch oven. We've each cooked a meal in it and man that bad boy is nice.
  14. First completed mini of the new year. Something about this figure, probably the tongue, puts me in the mind of a big, friendly dog. The dumber variety that cheerfully tramples and slobbers on everything in its path.
  15. I painted this up a couple of years ago and gave it over to my wife for the Kingdom of Mousdom (her desk at work). He recently came back to me after suffering an accident that made him lose his flying friend. So in addition to gluing him back together I gave him a quick touch up and a new base and thought I'd share him before he heads back to Mousdom.
  16. I don't know if this counts, but we tried baking a couple of new cookie varieties for the holidays. Mexican Wedding Cookies and some sort of cookie dough filled pretzel sandwiches dipped in chocolate, both of which were great. I also attempted to make a T Rex skeleton out of chocolate that didn't quite work out. But the shattered chocolate bones tasted good.
  17. There are 3 places in my city I get excited about going to... 1. Pierogi Mountain: it's a little kitchen turning out homemade pierogies in a dive bar. They make the best chicken paprikash I've ever had and serve it over dumplings. 2. The Angry Baker: they're a little vegetarian bakery in my neighborhood that serves great breakfast. Unfortunately they open after I leave for work and close before I get off, so I'm limited to getting the occasional weekend brunch from them. Bonus: they made a custom TARDIS cake for my wife's birthday a few years ago. 3. Yellow Brick Pizza: they do everything from a gluten free thin crust to a traditional deep dish pizza. Lots of salads and sides, one of the most interesting beer selections in the city, cool art, great staff, and its within walking distance. Its so good that if I didn't care about my health I could eat there every day. They're named for the yellow bricks that make up their building. But for their third anniversary they hosted an all drag performance of Wizard of Oz. Also, I may or may not occasionally glue some guerilla art in the form of miniatures around the outside of their building.
  18. I recently took part in the Yeti contest and liked the basing and paint style for my chieftain enough to use it for the rest of the Yeti from Bones 3. I am so looking forward to my players getting lost in a blizzard now. Will they be friendly Yeti, just there to help? Unlikely.
  19. Stuck at work being bored, so this looks fun... My all time favorite is Shadowrun. Was introduced in 91 and loved it. Eventually, my group decided we actually didn't like the rules as much as the setting so back around 97 or 98 we decided to write our own set of rules and have been using them ever since. That rulebook is now 70 pages long (no pictures or examples, don't need them as it's been a cooperative effort so we all know how to apply them) and we've run virtually every setting imaginable with them. We've had a continuous Shadowrun group for 22 or 23 years made up of mostly the same players. And one guy has managed to keep the same character that whole time. We only get to play about once a month these days but somehow its managed to not go stale. In terms of board games, my wife and I have been into Arkham Horror for several years now. A couple of years ago my wife ended up playing something like 16 hours of that game at Origins. We've got all the expansions for the last edition and when we set them all up at once it takes up most of my 10 foot long dining room table. Which is pretty great. Other than that I've been into a lot of Munchkin lately. I got my niece and nephew into it and every time they visit we end up playing it for hours. If any of you ever go to Origins I highly recommend getting into Munchkinsanity by Rogue Judges. Its every compatible Munchkin card in a curated deck including some one of a kind cards drawn by John Kovalic and signed by Steve Jackson. Last year my wife ended up winning a game with a total power of 135 against a monster with a total power of 132. Pretty insane!
  20. My entry and link to the Show Off thread. Please enjoy and good luck to everyone. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84146-77434-yeti-chieftain/
  21. Here is my entry for the LadyStorm's Winter Contest. Lots of firsts here for me. First Yeti, first snow base, in fact first base with more than grass and a couple rocks. I had intended to sculpt a little Santa hat for him and his victim. But that was a first attempt also, and I quickly found out that's a skill that's going to need some practice. So here he is... On the base is a Bones mini that I like to think of as not Indiana Jones frozen in carbonite. There's also little frozen backpack in there. And since it looks like I can put one more picture up here. He asked if he could show off his snowman. Thanks for looking and good luck to everyone in the contest.
  22. Great thread. I realized recently I don't have any holiday themed minis. So I got the holiday mousling set and started working through them. I'm no where near being done. But here's a WIP pic I sent my wife last night so she'd know they're on their way and she needs to make room for some new citizens in Mousdom (a shelf on her desk at work). Hope everyone has a great season!
  23. Undead or skeletal familiars. I'd enjoy painting up a cat or dog skeleton or a zombie raptor.
  24. I needed a big green dragon for a session coming up soon. So Blightfang here got the honor of being a dragon speed paint. I spent 6 sessions on her that lasted about 30 or so minutes each. I didn't figure I'd like the end result much, but I respect my players too much to kill their characters with an unpainted dragon. Even though I cut a lot of corners here I decided I liked it good enough, and if I find the time I may paint her again with a little more care.
