  1. I'm in! Thanks for the discord note. I don't check here as often as I should.
  2. This is absolutely wonderful. What a creative concept, and brilliantly executed.
  3. Wow! I'm starting on my Byverion today, I love seeing this one done up for inspiration. You really did a great job bringing out all of his many, many details!
  4. Wonderful! The neutrals in the color schemes work so well together.
  5. The Dragon Turtle model needs to wait for a few more weeks, but at least my base is finally done. By itself, it's bigger than most projects I've done, and I loved all of the little details, taking my time with each item. I'm especially proud of the vases, my best freehand so far, I think.
  6. Those three colors (Carbon grey, foggy grey, moonstone blue) were used by Anne in an old RTB episode for NMM steel, and I've been using them as my go-to for metal ever since. It just seemed coincidental that they're together in a triad now, or is it? Just thought this could be good info for others looking for an easy steel triad.
  7. I received the most wonderful package today from JGroeling! He really went all out, with a diorama and integrated base for this lovely bard and her canine friend. I just love the composition of the bricks and moss and the stones on this base, and these two adventurers will definitely be making it into my next campaign. Beautiful painting! This really made my day. Thank you!!
  8. So sorry about the sword! It was a hand swap with a different model, so that was a weak point. I should have pinned it. I hope it's an easy fix!! Still, it did travel a fair distance so I'm glad that's all that happened : ) Enjoy! I had fun painting it while re-watching the entire extended cut trilogy!
  9. @Lihmeth Check your mail : ) I'm so nervous about whether I packed it well enough. I hope it's in one piece!
  10. Finished, packaged and being mailed tomorrow!
  11. No.. spring was alright, as work kept us as unexposed as possible (essential, but no one was traveling so we were able to work skeleton crews), but air traffic picked up (what madness possesses people to get on an airplane right now?!) and we have to work shoulder to shoulder with everyone again, sharing both close quarters and equipment. Every week it seems we have more positive cases of COVID, and add in the stress of thunder storms, and this is the most anxious summer of my life.
  12. WIP : More greenstuff (because I just can't seem to stop fiddling with things) and finally ready for paint. Recipient is NOT named, just a photo.
  13. Basing and placement is done, greenstuff is curing. I wanted to add a wip photo but it won't upload so.. maybe next time : )
  14. I am also Skiesclear on deviantart and the Reaper discord, and Skies_clear on twitch (and reddit, though I don't use it much).
  15. It's a double edged sword.. everything is cancelled (season tickets to the theater, international trips, D&D, all of it) and the socially anxious part of me revels in the ability to just keep staying home, even though in the past, when I did get to go, I'd enjoy it once I got there. Now, since work is the only place I do go, any other outing puts me on the verge of panic. I'm worried that COVID is making me permanently agoraphobic.
  16. Christmas gifts expected for anyone over 16 years old. After that, the holiday gift should be attention, company, affection, socialization, not material things.
  17. @Kuroneko Oh wow.. those dragons are truly beautiful. Amazing work.
  18. I did buy another unpainted model off of ebay this year, so I could do a comparison paint, but it was spendy. $65, not in the package. Reaper makes a great Hook Horror, aka Gloom Stalker, 44061.. much more reasonably priced!!
  19. This was my first foray into mini painting.. grabbed a Ral Partha Hook Horror and a handful of citadel paints from a comic books store in the late 90's, and the addiction was born.
