  1. I use wooden spools with blue tack. Sometimes if a mini has a dodgy base (or no base) I'll glue cork to the spool, drill holes in the model's feet, glue some sewing pins that I've cut down into the holes and stick them in the cork.
  2. None of these are Reaper minis, but I thought I'd share. These are all commission pieces I finished up about a month ago. First up is Brienne of Tarth from Dark Sword. I filed the Tarth arms off of her shield and painted the tree/shooting star she chose for herself in A Feast For Crows. Next is a 54mm Arya from Dark Sword's Arya/Jon Snow diorama (my client didn't want her painted as Arya, so she's a red-head). The squire is from GameZone Miniatures (gonna have to pick up a few of these for my Pendragon game). The last one is a nice little plastic 54mm chick. I don't know who the manufacturer is, unfortunately. Sorry these look a bit grainy; I'm having some camera issues that I've yet to resolve.
  3. I have had a couple of crumbled caps, but no real problems with fading labels. A few have faded a bit, but not so much that I can't read them.
  4. Thanks, everyone! GRRM has quite an extensive miniature collection and I know of several artists who have been painting for him. Jen Haley encouraged me to send him some photos of my work. I did, not really expecting to hear back from him. I was pleasantly surprised when I did, and thrilled for the opportunity to paint for him. That's pretty much it.
  5. Here we have two miniatures from Dark Sword that I just finished for George RR Martin. Can't quite believe that I actually got to paint for him. *Pinches Self* First up is Waymar Royce of the Night's Watch, followed by Female Rogue with Sword
  6. Both the sculpt & paint job are gorgeous! Well done!
  7. There's a Chuy's in Denton?!?!
  8. Thank you all for your feedback! Derek - I always appreciate any suggestions you have to offer! Darsc Zacal - The green leaves on her base are dried oregano from my herb garden. I don't remember what the other beige-y dried flowers are. I'm always on the lookout for interesting, tiny flowers that can be dried and used for basing
  9. Thanks! My pic is a showing up a bit dark here. Not sure why
  10. Finished up Kristianna a few months ago. This has come to be my favorite color palette, and I'm finding myself coming back to it a bit too often. Gotta branch out...
  11. Just booked my room at HGI and didn't have any issues getting the RMI $89 deal. Didn't say anything about breakfast being included, but I've emailed them to confirm.
  12. I've stayed at the HGI the past few times I've visited Denton. Their breakfast buffet is really, really good :)
  13. Thanks, everyone! Yes, Parish is a great place! All of the preschool teachers are speech/language pathologists. After one year, Lórien has already progressed to a "bridge" class where she has a regular teacher. A speech pathologist visits her classroom for 8 hours per week.
  14. I painted this little guy earlier this year for The Parish School's annual auction. Parish is an amazing place for kids with autism and other learning differences (mostly speech related). My five-year-old daughter, Lórien, attends Parish and the progress she's made over the past year has been incredible. Anyway, when I saw this mousling I thought his shield perfectly suited Parish's motto: Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow.
  15. Very, very deserving of the gold! Such an eye-catcher!
  16. That is stunning! Congratulations!
  17. That's happened to me before, too!
  18. I've just discovered an HP Lovecraft audio library here: http://www.miskatonic-university.org/libervox.php Then, you can listen to some really fun discussions of his works here (or free in iTunes, which seems to work better on my Mac): http://hppodcraft.com/
  19. I usually listen to music (classical, World - Loreena McKennitt, Medieval Baebes, etc.). I also really enjoy listening to the podcasts from BBC History Magazine: http://www.historyextra.com/podcast-page
  20. "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" - William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream. My youngest, Morgan, making her "fierce face"
  21. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! @Dodson - I'll try to get another shot next time I have everything set up, but I don't know if I can get in any tighter on the freehand. If you look too closely, you'll just see an assortment of different colored blobs with some green squigglies. I wanted to do a tiny floral print, but decided it would be safer to go with the illusion of a tiny floral print. The inspiration came from an events sheet that my husband created for our Pendragon game (below). I was looking at it, thinking, "I wish I could find a blouse with that floral pattern on it." Then I looked at the unpainted mini on the table and *ding ding ding* One of the things that's so much fun about Pendragon is that my husband (he sometimes lurks around here, known as Taliesin) really puts a lot of time into creating or finding really cool visuals. His background is in graphic design and he always comes to the table with maps, graphics, gorgeous character sheets, etc. He's currently doing quite a bit of editing work on the actual rule books with Pendragon creator, Greg Stafford. The character referenced in the sheet below, Bran ap Brychan, is my character. The character that the Lady in Waiting represents is my wife, Maela. This is the first time I've ever played a male character and, right off the bat, I get this poor handmaiden knocked-up. I did right by her, though, and we're now married with FIVE kids.
