  1. "Palaeo Diet - Eat or be Eaten" is a fun little game. Low miniature count, can be played solo if necessary and generally a hoot with others; especially when a player gets mauled by a beastie. Reaper's Black Bear Clan cavemen seem as if they were made expressly for the game - each member holds a weapon that is available in game to arm your hungry cavemen with. When I started painting this quartet, I looked around to see if I had any more miniatures that would work as extra cavemen, should more people want to play. What I found was an old Citadel barbarian lady from their Collector's series, curiously called "Big Mama". She seemed perfect as a second spear carrier, so I added her in to the project. From left to right we have Thug, Klunk, Ooga, Thunk and Ugh. Yes, mold lines. I still find even Bones Black a pig's ear to prep. "Werewolf?" "There wolf. Wait, that demon. Uh oh." Here is a solo pic of Ooga, just because I like her face. "Klunk, yoo idgit!"
  2. Citadel Chaos Amazon by Michael Perry, painted as a Champion of Khorne which is my default Chaos god. Or you can call her Kinky Chaosette - if you wanna be nasty. /Janet Jackson A fun if somewhat difficult miniature to paint. Naturally, I had to compound the issue with the shield design 😛 I kind of regret the color of the bow, as it really draws the eye away from everything else. Ah well. Here's one more pic with her against an experimental canvas painted by Mrs. Sharky, just because. Fitting, no?
  3. Sadly, this is where I'll be today and tomorrow until 11pm. At least I live 30 miles from the hotel.
  4. You know, I'd like to see more Illyrians. We have a scout, a PI, and...a stripper. Intentional or not, they resemble a certain one-eyed race in a sci-fi webcomic that recently finished it's run. More military types for these guys would be cool.
  5. Hah, we loved GURPS back in the '90s - the highlight game took place in the 30 Years War (yes, really). My character was, well, pretty much a dumber version of The Kurgan. I got around this by saying that he had been kicked in the head by a horse and was taking a while to recover.
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. Oh pleasohpleaseohplease... I'm sad that I'll miss seeing my bestest Con Buddy - you know, the metal trade in table. :)
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Garnet. Especially the gorgeous dark red and red-brown ones.
  12. 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.

  14. I've been doing my darndest to keep it a quiet Monday.
