  1. This is one of the coolest things I've seen on this forum! Top notch creativity and execution!
  2. Painted up this cool dwarf. Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  3. Painted this swarthy looking dwarf up for a sorcerer character I'm planning on playing at some point. I'm really happy with how he turned out. My wife actually suggested the shock of white hair on the top of his head, which ended up being my favorite part. Critiques and advice are always welcome, thanks in advance!
  4. Wanted to try something different with this paladin looking fig. I figured the most opposite thing of a paladin would be a drow warlock, so I just went from there. I kept everything pretty simple, but spent a decent amount of time on the cloak and flaming sword. Very happy with the results, comments and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  5. Painted up this awesome fig as my first experience with the bones black material. I loved the detail, and it took the primer/paint really well. I didn't have any real plan with this one, so I just started with the bear pelt. I had never painted a polar bear before, so I went with that. After that was done, I thought blue would look neat with the white fur, and the rest just came together. It wasn't until I got finished that I realized he looked like a big angry Smurf! Still really happy with him though! Critiques and advice are always welcome, thank you!
  6. Hey everyone! It's been forever since my last Show Off, I finally got around to upgrading my painting space with a nice lamp so I actually have decent lighting now. This is a fig for my Goliath character in a D&D game. There is a pretty bad mold line that I didn't notice until after painting, but at that point it was too late to scrape off. Overall I'm pretty happy with him and am looking forward to posting again! Comments and advice are always welcome! Thanks!
  7. "Worse things have happened to better people" I try to keep things in perspective, as well as be thankful for what I have.
  8. I tore my meniscus in my sleep. I was training for a marathon at the time, and was so into it that I was even dreaming about running. I got my leg tangled up in a blanket and must have jerked it just right in my sleep and the dang thing tore.
  9. Author for sure. You could do pretty much anything and go anywhere in the name of research for a new book. And then you get to share all of your experiences with people who are interested.
  10. Does running count? My goal for this year is to do more races. I'm hoping for a duathalon in the spring and a half marathon in the fall. My wife has got me hooked on Nebraska Cornhusker Volleyball of all things. She's a middle school volleyball coach and she went to Nebraska for college, so she has a passion for the team. I'm not as obsessed as some Husker fans, but I've had a ton of fun at the games we've gone to. We traveled up to Minneapolis for the national championship game in December, but unfortunately they came up short. Still a great trip though!
  11. I'm having a hard time coming up with a "best" thing for this year, it was consistently good with tons of simple, enjoyable moments. Spent a lot of time with my wife and dog, played a bunch of great D&D, went camping with my siblings, bought a new car, welcomed my cousin's new baby into the world, and took several trips with friends. I consider myself very lucky and will be blessed if I have many years like 2018 in the future. I'll be ringing in the new year with my wife and dog. I plan on painting and watching Arrested Development. My wife had never seen it, but we have been binging it and are just finishing up the original seasons.
  12. D&D and it's not even close. I DM for 3 different groups, each with very different playstyles. I'm running 2 games over Christmas, and then will start running at least 2 games a month in 2019. It's an insane amount of work, but there's nothing better than having engaged players laughing along with something you created.
  13. I've been on a nonfiction kick for a long time now, but I read World Chase Me Down by Andrew Hilleman this last summer and loved it. It's based on a real event, the first successful kidnapping for ransom in American history. Most of the stuff in the story actually happened, but it's told from the perspective of one of the kidnappers who was a wild storyteller in real life and is most likely embellished. The writing is excellent and story itself is fascinating. My little brother asked for some historical fiction books for Christmas this year, and I'm getting him The Last Days Of Night by Graham Moore. It sounds super interesting and I'll probably read it myself after I'm done with my current book.
  14. Winston will be with me until the bitter end. He's too friendly of a dog to survive a day in the wild on his own. And his inability to stay quiet when I need him to will most likely be the cause of my death. But there's no way I could leave him behind.
  15. Thanks all! The sword/eyes/chest rune were a mix from Citadel paint: White Scar & Baharroth Blue. Citadel is the only brand my LGS sells, but I'm pretty happy with what has been available. I was sticking with the Iron Man theme and wanted to use the chest rune as the Arc Reactor, along with the cool glowing eyes of the helmet. I liked the color so much I decided to keep it going with the sword, supplementing the weapon for all to the cool energy beams Iron Man has. I thought about adding more of it on the armor, but decided to leave it as a highlight rather than a main component. I'm really happy with it how it turned out though!
