  1. Thank you @Glitterwolf, I've been using a rigger brush to do textures and I'm really happy with how it's going! Well, it's been another variable month health wise, but fortunately it hasn't stopped me from painting. I managed to finish a couple of long term projects and did one particularly hectic paint job too. First of all, the panic paintjob! I misread some messages and painted the wrong mini for my Trio with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling . Here's the result of a days panicked work! Next up is my duo with @Humansquish, Circe and her Boars from the Bones 5 Greek Odyssey expansion. Next up is my entry for our Q3 large group. The theme this time is the work of the sculptor Julie Guthrie. Since one of Julies dragon minis is what inspired me to start painting in the firs place it seemed only appropriate that I painted this awesome dragon from Dragons Don't Share. Finally, here's my version of Valfuryx from Bones 5. Took me over 3 months and but he's a lovely sculpt of a rather chonky, gatorlike dragon. Thank you so much for looking everyone!
  2. Not a problem @Humansquish! Keep on working on those entries, apparently people work on them at the con right up to deadline! Here's my statues, which are a testament to the powers of drybrushing, washes and strategically placed tufts. I'll definitely have to use them in Pathfinder as golems at some point. Here's my trio entry with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling. I have no idea what his name is but hes one of the Kid Heroes from Bones 5. Great sculpt but hands were not up to the details. I did try my first freehand since my nerves went wonky, so that's definitely a bonus! Thanks for looking everyone!
  3. Thank you everyone! And sorry for the very late reply, I've not been doing so well lately. However I've managed to finish these collaborative minis for this month. First up is this fine figure of a minotaur that I did with @Humansquish .I tried to make him a bit shaggier, not entirely sure I succeeded but I think it suits him. Second is my trio with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling. You definitely wouldn't want to meet this fellow on a dark night! Thanks for looking everyone, here's hoping that my output increases soon. Stay safe!
  4. Thank you everyone! You are all too kind No cat pics this month, mostly because I locked them out of the room when I was trying to take photos. Little brats cried the entire time! First up is my Trio mini with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling. Not my best work, but its been a struggle trying to get painting time this month so I'm happy just to get paint on something. My Duo with @Humansquish. I tried to divert attention away from my painting by overcompensating with cork/rock! This fella does look a lot better, but thats because most of the work on him was done last month. She's Shavynra the Slayer from Bones 5 and shes part of our Quarterly group which includes @Inarah, @Maledrakh, @Thoramel and @ManvsMini Thanks for looking everybody! I've got the next couple of days off so I'm hoping that I can get some more minis done asap!
  5. Hey there @Venun, my sincerest apologies, I've been severely distracted by some heavy life stuff lately. I've talked to people from several different postal/courier services and it pretty much seems like its totally random whether or not customs snag packages or not. Sometimes things sail through, sometimes they get hit by customs. Properly filling out the forms isn't a guarantee of success either That said, I'm willing to send the box if you're happy to take the risk. I'll dig out my greenstuff rollers and make a bunch of bases for you and your friends just in case you do get hit by the dreaded duty!
  6. He looks fantastic! The dark blue really makes the white 'pop' and he looks decidedly glacial. I wouldn't have known that he was drybrushed if you hadn't said.
  7. Well, it's been another unproductive month on the painting front. I might get some more stuff finished before the end, but for now here's my my collaborative efforts for this months Challenge League. First up is my duo with @Humansquish, which is the Artemis mini from the Bones 5 Greek expansion Second up is my trio with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling which is the Zombie Giant also from Bones 5. Bonus picture of my painting assistant A final shot of my current long running project with a new base and way too many hours invested in him! Thanks for looking everyone!
  8. Morning all, currently having a walk that would be 100% better if it wasn't bucketing down with rain. Still, the bluebells look awfully pretty
  9. If anyone has a few million burning a hole in their pocket, this 5' 11" bottle of whiskey is going up for sale on the 25th May. Equivalent to 444 standard bottles, The Intrepid is a 32 year old single malt from the Macallan distillery and is hoped to break the record of the most expensive bottle of scotch ever sold at auction.
  10. I'm going to count today as a win since I managed to make some definite progress on Monsieur Blanc here in a solid three hours of painting. Next time, I start on the wings!
  11. It was an awesome day, unfortunately the Scottish saying of "We'll pay for this" kicked into effect in the early hours of Tuesday and it's been intermittent pain/numbness/more pain since then. Managed to get some painting done this morning, even if it was only one cherry blossom pink Infinity mini. Going to push my luck and work on that white dragon after lunch.
  12. There have been varying accounts, but I personally wouldn't risk it. You really don't need to prime Bones anyway. If you have any of the liners, then they make a really fantastic first coat. Well, yesterday we escaped the madness from next door and had a fun day of cinematic thrills, eating too much rich food and retail therapy. Came back to the neighbors trying to clean up their garden (their lawn is toast) and broke out some boardgames. All in all, the kind of stuff that one of my coworkers calls "a total waste of a day off" Was supposed to be going up a hill today but heavy rain and high winds put paid to that. Going to just chill, order in some pizza and do some painting. Hope Monday doesn't maul you all too much.
  13. I think that those are Forget-Me-Nots, at least they look really close to our version. Great pictures, by the way
  14. That's our plan, we don't want to be held up by the Sunday morning rush hour! They are very nice people and I'm very glad that we got the warning. Their dogs are going to doggy daycare, so goodness knows how noisy it's going to get Really looking forward to the film, it's been a while since the director has had as big a budget and I'm curious to see what he does with it. Our plan is cinema, lunch, model shop, FLGS and maybe do some clothes shopping if we have time. Maybe do a river walk afterwards if the rain holds off, but it's not looking likely at the moment. Housemate is currently trying to get me to agree to going out for dinner too, just in case
  15. Just had a talk with our neighbours, apparently their grandkids are having a massive birthday party in their garden tomorrow. Bouncy castle, clown, music, the whole shebang starting at 10.30 in the morning. Sounds nice. In completely unrelated news, we just booked tickets for the new Dr Strange movie 11am showing tomorrow.
  16. I've actually got a couple of osprey nests from Chesapeake Bay on my watch list, but both are empty at the moment. I'll link them as soon as I see any activity! Lies! It's all lies......well, unless the Dark Side gives out comfy beds, that is... That's fantastic! Here's hoping for a confirmation ASAP!
  17. I found it during a random image search, but it's a purpose made thing.... https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.instructables.com/CAT-CAT/%3famp_page=true ...called a CAT CAT 😹 🙀
  18. Just in case anyone wants to watch that osprey next cam, here's the link- https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sBgt4AwGf_w She's sitting on three eggs at the moment and is keeping them safe from everything including the frosty Scottish weather!
  19. Not working(yay!), unfortunately it's a super rainy and windy. I managed to reschedule all of this week's deliveries to today so I'm going to take it easy and get some painting done. Maybe even tidy up my desk and put some Star Wars on in the background. Edit: Okay, the nest cam is that I'm watching is mocking me, apparently all the sun in Scotland is staying in Dunkeld
  20. It references the dance for Y.M.C.A( where you spell out the letters with your arms) It's sung by these fine fellows
  21. We played some board games yesterday. Or as this little guy calls it, "Oh boy, new box day!"
  22. Yup, @aku-chan let me know if you want one and I'll grab an extra one for you when the pledge manager opens.
