    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Well, T'Raukzul does have a kind of "Come at me, Bro" pose going with his wings. No wonder your cat was worried about it We have to keep an eye on our kitteh when we're using spider minis, she's liable to try and steal the little ones to try and eat them. She also broke a remote controled tarantula that one of my relatives brought over to scare our pets "for a joke" On the topic of the kickstarter, I just checked the Pledge Manager to see how much I need so far. It's almost $600, and we still have two weeks to go. I need to get more overtime.....

    It's a lovely model, but it is way overpriced. I had great fun painting one up as a Leng Spider, but one of our cats took exception to it and stomped 3 of it's legs off before we could haul her away from it. Thankfully, I hadn't attached the howdah at that point so she didn't hurt herself. I'm guessing that the kitteh racial memory will be triggered by that new spider too, so I'll have to invest in some sturdy storage boxes nearer the time.

  5. I got some new dice from the Big River. No doubt they will betray me like all the others I also made my monthly tithe to Reaper 03264 Roderic and Glitter 09107 Brush on Sealer 09175 Swamp Green 44039 Rockmaw 44049 Stone Lurker 77308 Boar Demon 77316 Demon Lord of the Undead 77456 Ogre Guard 01031 Ghoulie Bag 44010 Dark Dwarf Pounder I also got a bottle of Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, which I'm going to use on some fabulous Cherry Blossom mechs that I've had planned for a while Edit: I thought I'd managed to use the one picture of the Reaper loot that DIDN'T have Loki encroaching on it, but there's his little nose near the bottom left of the photo

    Maybe a couple of inches past my shoulders? Long enough to put in a short plait to keep it tidy, but short enough to dry in a reasonable time without having to blow-dry it. Colour varies by season, but it's usually in the red to blonde range. My natural colour is a weird muddy red/brown I've never been a fan of, so I've been dying it since I was sixteen. One of these days I'm going to go for hidden rainbow hair like this

    Apparently it was mentioned in one of the sculptor videos on YouTube. +++Does happy dance+++

    There's going to be a sea dragon!?! Fantastic! Hold on, in the "Bones you'd like to see" thread, I asked for a new hydra, an oriental dragon, sea dragon and a couatl. ***Waits hopefully for couatl***

    Wow! Thanks for all the 'likes' everyone! I wasn't going to inflict him onto the forum until I started slapping the paint on, but maybe I should start that WIP a bit earlier than I planned. Mind you, the next stage might be entitled "Waaahh!!! Why are scales so difficult?" This project has given me new respect to proper sculptors like @TaleSpinner. I've ordered some firm putty shapers to see if they help with taming the greenstuff, hopefully they should arrive tomorrow.

    I'm trying to turn Argent(from Bones 4) into a great wyrm..........faerie dragon, that is! My flatmate found a picture of one from WoW and I realised that my spare one was the perfect candidate to make a life sized version. These are my first sketches, drawn on the back of a couple of Amazon envelopes because I was pinned to my seat by cats at the time Also included in the pic is my eventual wing template. I realised that the crest needed to be larger, mostly so that it wasn't overwhelmed by the wings. There's a wire/mesh structure underneath. It looks awful just now, i need to smooth out the transition between the ridges and the sails. Here he is with the wing template showing roughly how he should look eventually. Nothing is stuck together at this point to make the sculpting easier. That's as far as I've gotten so far. In my defence, I'm terrible with greenstuff, mostly due to being allergic to it.
  11. Glad you got some stuff you like, @Edsterdoom! Some of that stuff looks very familiar I think @paintybeard is on holiday, he'll probably get back to you when he's returned from his adventures.
  12. Woo hoo! My mandatory work team building event day for tomorrow has been cancelled I can stay home and try and sculpt instead! ***Does happy dance***

    Galladoria Games Rise of the Mimics 2!

    My mimics made it safe and sound across the Atlantic Ocean. Time to lull my players into a false sense of security with the decoy minis

    That spider is absolutely gorgeous! (in a scary arachnid kinda way ). I'm going to need multiples, every time my party encounters Leng Spiders I have to proxy like crazy. Kudos to @TaleSpinner, she's a beauty!
