    Krug the Hill Giant

    Thanks! She has never jumped up on the desk before honestly. I think she just didn't like my work. I'd like to think it was good enough that she felt that this new evil creature needed to be destroyed. Thanks! It is actually just the way the mini was sculpted. It is really the only thing I dislike about it and it made it really difficult to get even half-decent pictures. Thanks, Cyradis, it is good to be back. I think the photos don't capture the highlights as much as I'd like but I do need to learn more techniques. I was actually happy with the eyes, they are mostly looking in the same direction and I think may be the best I have done to date.

    Krug the Hill Giant

    This is the first mini I have painted in several months. Overall I am pleased; some parts came out better than others. I originally had the right arm well fitted and smoothly integrated into the mini...then the cat jumped on the desk and knocked it over and the arm somehow popped right off. I tried to make it look good, but the parts just didn't want to fit together anymore. I feel like there is more I could do, but the point of this mini was to get me back into painting and I know if I continue to obsess over the details, I will grow bored. The pictures (as usual) don't do it full justice. Comments and Critiques always welcome. Thanks, everyone!

    Galad Heartwood - Reaper's Aravir Elven Ranger, by Cyr

    That looks amazing! I wish I had your skills! I agree with your players, that is far more than "just" a tabletop paint job. Beautiful!

    02924 - "Hanna the Bard-barian"

    Looks outstanding! I imagine that somehow he can make his little mandolin sound like sweet sweet death metal.

    Cultists 77517 & 77518

    These look amazing. I too love the water around the feet. More importantly, that blue just looks phenomenal. Well done!

    This looks fantastic! I like the suspenders and shirt the most, the contrasting on the shirt looks great and you did a nice job on the buttons.
  7. It has happened many times. Consider the Scots and their kilts. They fought "free".
  8. I finished the 3rd book in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive book. The first two were phenomenal and I eagerly read them in a short period of time because they were riveting. The third book is good, but it lacks some of the energy and excitement of the first two. Still, a very good read. I started reading The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milán and I barely got 1/3rd of the way through it before I completely gave up. It is bad. Like exceedingly bad. I have never actually thrown away a book that I have purchased until this one. I don't know what to read now which is very depressing. I was thinking maybe reading the LOTR books again but not sure I'm up for Tolkien's writing style.
  9. I use some of my minis for D&D and Pathfinder. I dream of finding a non-awkward group to play Warmachine with but the "starter box" set I have of those just sit on my shelf, which is basically what most of my minis do. Playing games is secondary to my passion for painting though, mostly I paint for display and my personal gratification. Playing with them is just a nice bonus.

    Outstanding work!

    Looks great! I love all the little details.
  13. Reaper (who'd have guessed that?) Privateer Press: I like the idea of playing Warmachine, even if I have no one to play with. Citadel/GW: Way overpriced and not truly worth the money....but I am so obsessed with the Horus Heresy novel series. I have a dream of having a display shelf of 18 beautifully painted Primarch minis.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    I have no interesting nugget of wisdom to share, but I felt like just saying that I really missed painting and I am glad to be back at it and I don't know why I ever stopped!

    Outstanding work! I really like the idea of the dragon keeping his spells tattooed on his wings. Although I can't help but think of Homer Simpson...
