  1. Wish granted. Asgard miniatures barbarian with horribly miscast hands, painted in 1984. Combination Testors and Poly-S. Edit: On second thought, it might be all Testors.
  2. Can't speak for Ft. Worth, but avoid the Frisco/The Colony/Plano area (north of Dallas), unless you like high property taxes. Lot of companies have moved here in the past 5-ish years, so we're paying for it. Not that I'm bitter, or anything...
  3. Oh pleasohpleaseohplease... I'm sad that I'll miss seeing my bestest Con Buddy - you know, the metal trade in table. :)
  4. Well, it had to happen; I am finally on my last bottle of the one-off color, Big Top Red. I absolutely love this stuff - to me it's everything a base red color should be. Has anyone out there in Reaper Land discovered a good match for it in Reaper's current paint line-up? So far, the Heraldic Red swatch looks close but I know that colors on the computer screen can be filthy liars. Thanks, all.
  5. April 2006? Huh... Must have been for the ReaperCon that year. I don't really post much; I got away from regular message board visiting a while ago.
  6. Garnet. Especially the gorgeous dark red and red-brown ones.
  7. I stared at those mounted wraiths for a looong time at the Con today... I want about nine of them, oh yes, I indeedy do.

    I only seem to make every third RCon, which is odd considering that I live less than 20 miles away. I'll be there Thursday, at least... Name: Sharky, aka Gitkikka Pronoun: He/Him Huggability: Negative
  9. I've been doing my darndest to keep it a quiet Monday.
  10. I find R. A. Salvatore's unbridled use of melodrama so off-putting, I've never managed to get completely through one of his books. Honestly, any of the "Hey, that was an awesome D&D game! Let's write a novel about it!" authors are almost painful to read (I'm looking at you, Weis and Hickman). And yes, reading Moby Dick is like taking a beating. It's just so weird to read...
  11. You better be good... ...for goodness sakes. Wargames Foundry Bazooka Santa. Edit: Whoops, sorry - not a Reaper. I did just happen to paint up this guy a couple days ago, and figured he should be in on the festivities.
  12. That has *got* to be a Bob Olley sculpt.
  13. My oldest are these Citadel Fantasy Tribe skellies that my parents got for me in 1983: Finally got around to painting them this year :p My first painted miniature was an Asgard barbarian that came with a variety of weapons to put in his (horribly miscast) hands. No pictures though - the paintjob is no big whoop. Rarest? I don't know... Space Slann? "Kinky Chaosette"? All unpainted of course, but i have recently primed a few of the Slann, and I hope to start my Chaos project next year...
  14. Oh heck, while I'm at it... I painted this old Ork Boy at the same time that I did the Grenadier Orcs posted earlier, just to test the darker skin tone on a 40K miniature. Actually finished him a week or so ago, but work does tend to get in the way with posting. "On Top". Why? Who knows? Good photography is optional. :)
  15. What do you do when you need to build an army worthy of Mordor, but have a limited budget? Outsource, baby! Some test scemes here on a trio of plastic Grenadier orcs from their Fantasy Warriors game. I'm putting together a Mordor force for GW's LotR game, but didn't want to just use their sculpts (because orcs are a varied lot - that, and I have a HUGE number of these Grenadier guys just laying around). Cute buggers, ya? Best part about them is that they seem to be the same type of HIPS that GW uses, so I can kitbash to my heart's content.
