  1. First of all, my thanks to everyone who took the time to stop by this thread and reply. @fieldarchy: I don't have the recipe memorized, I used the step-by step directions for an Ogre Dragon Shaggoth in White Dwarf #284. I can't find that issue right now, so I'm sorry I dont have more info for you. I rarely, if ever, use the same skin recipe more than once. @PurityThruFire: The metal recipe I use for my ogres is this: prime black base coat with a reddish brown of your choice (sometimes I use terracotta, sometimes it is vermin brown-GW color) dry brush with boltgun metal LIGHTLY! This is important as you will be doing numerous layers of drybrush so they will build up. ink wash with 1:1:1:10 ratio of black ink:red ink:brown ink:water stipple on bright orange. NOT a lot! Too much will not look right. Then dry brush with boltgun again. Ink wash and stipple as needed. Sometimes I get the effect I'm looking for after about 3 or four times through these steps, other times, it takes longer, or I will get a different look that I like. Most of my recipes are from various articles on the internet, in White Dwarf, or the old Harbinger magazine. I clip/copy the article and put it into a 3 ring binder that is organized by category for easy reference. The binder is in my studio right next to my painting area. Hope this answer's your questions. Feel free to drop me an email if you have any other painting questions or suggestions.
  2. At Adepticon they have a Rogue Demon painting competition as well as gaming tournaments. The Golden Demon rules do not address if the piece has won another painting competition, only that it can't have won another Golden Demon competition. @ fieldarchy: I will post the recipe when I can find it. I have to look through a few notebooks I keep. I'll PM it to you as well.
  3. Well, it has been a LONG time since I have been to the Reaper boards! (8+ months) After lurking for the last few days and seeing all the new faces (and some of the long time vets) I decided to post up some pics of my latest project. I originally did these ogres for Adepticon this last April. They took 3rd in the regiment category. I also entered them into the Chicago Golden Demons where they made first cut. These pics were not taken by me, once I have more time, I will post pics of the backs (LOTS of freehand tattoos). Any comments or suggestions are welcome! The ogre on the left has a converted weapon and gloved fist. The ogre on the right has a spikey mohawk. Not much really converted on these two. I sculpted the bandage from greenstuff. Not the greatest pic of the standard bearer. I added a second skull to the standard. The bases are all made from odd bits I had laying around. And the full unit. Oh yeah, each ogre has a tattoo of the Maw on their head.
  4. Can someone explain to me why my photos have a tan tinge to them? I am using reveal light bulbs and I can't find any kind of white balance type feature on my camera. I just don't get it. Is it an aperture setting? What should that be set at? MAN! this is frustrating. Thanks for any help. Keith
  5. I will be at the game tomorrow. I have gone to at least 1 game a year for the past 9 years and have only been to one losing one (against the Falcons in the playoffs). Historical trends suggest that the Brownies may have to wait another week for a W.... hehe
  6. Yeah that will last about 2 more weeks.... I am blaming the penalties on that one. Plus the fact that historically, Favre has never put up good numbers in Detroit. But the Lions are 0-13 at Lambeau during the Favre era!
  7. Overall this is a good roster. The defense guys are all solid! Not so crazy about your 2nd RB though. You might want to see if Willie Parker from Pittsburgh is still available, pick him up and drop Jake the Snake. Just some un-asked for opinions....
  8. Nice roster! Solid at WR! How many teams? I'd also like to know how you scammed Marv and Manning?!?!
  9. Well, Lord Football has awaken from his summer slumber and is now seated on his sporting throne. I don't know how many Reaper peeps on the board actually participate in fantasy football (or will admit to it ), but I thought it would be cool to post starting rosters for those that do participate. My league had it's draft on Labor Day. There are 8 teams and we get to keep one player from our team from last year. (We are in our 9th year as a league). Here is my starting roster: QB Peyton Manning (kept from my team last year) RB Domanick Davis RB Deuce McAllister WR Torry Holt WR Reggie Wayne WR Donald Driver TE Todd Heap K Jason Elam (we also get points for all special teams scores) DEF Pittsburgh Well that is it. I finished in 2nd place last year, 2nd the year before and won it all 2 years ago. Overall I am pretty happy with the roster. We also have backups on our "bench". 4 RB's 4 WR's another TE, K, and Defense. So, what does everyone else have?
  10. FOr those of you who don't know, I work in the IT department at Mercury Marine's Global Headquarters in Fond du Lac, WI, USA. Here are some press releases that we were sent today that really made my day. I am glad I work for a company that is this willing to help where it can. (by the way the employees are also raising cash and our parent company Brunswick is going to match dollar for dollar ) Read on...... MERCURY/BRUNSWICK BOAT DONATIONS Mercury and Triton step up hurricane assistance FOND DU LAC, Wis. (Sept. 2, 2005) - Mercury Marine and Triton Boats are rigging 10 boats and engines Friday for immediate use in the rescue efforts in and around New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The 40 hp FourStroke EFI engines were trucked overnight from Mercury's headquarters in Fond du Lac and arrived Friday morning at Triton's aluminum boat plant in Prairie, Miss. Technicians were standing by to rig the engines on 10 Triton 1648 SFB boats with the expectation that the units would be fully rigged, equipped with life jackets and other safety equipment, fueled and ready for service by noon local time. The boats are being put on trailers and picked up by officers from the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency who have volunteered to tow the boats to the New Orleans area and aid in the rescue. The boats are durable aluminum models of shallow draft, making them ideally suited for use in the flooded areas of the state. Brunswick, Walt Disney World Team Up for Hurricane Relief LAKE FOREST, Ill., (Sept. 2) -- Brunswick Corporation and the Walt Disney World Resort announced today that they have partnered to deliver nine Trophy center console boats with Mercury Marine engines to New Orleans to support Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. Coordinated through the US Marine Division of the Brunswick Boat Group, these boats will be turned over to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and used to shuttle refugees, officials and medical supplies in the devastated city. US Marine makes and markets Bayliner, Maxum and Trophy boats as well as Meridian Yachts. "We approached Walt Disney World because it has one of the largest concentrations of Trophy boats close to the affected areas of the Gulf Coast, and this would allow for those boats to be pressed into use quickly," explained US Marine's Mark Zobel, vice president of marketing. "The response from Disney was overwhelming, and their cooperation will ensure that more help is on the way almost immediately. We are extremely grateful for their assistance and the urgency in which they dealt with this matter." Mercury, Sea Pro support New Orleans efforts FOND DU LAC, Wis. (Sept. 1, 2005) _ Mercury Marine has joined with Sea Pro boat company to ship more than $200,000 in boats and engines to support rescue efforts in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. "We wanted to do all we could to help, and we wanted to do it immediately," said Mercury Marine President Patrick C. Mackey. "This is truly a time of crisis that is difficult for most of us to comprehend. Many people need help, and this is an area in which we're qualified and capable of making a difference." Mercury, the world's largest manufacturer of recreational marine engines, is shipping 10 inflatable boats with four-stroke motors to New Orleans for general rescue and recovery efforts. Additionally, Mercury has supplied engines for five boats donated by Sea Pro. The inflatable boats with engines were donated by Mercury in response to a request from the Louisiana governor's office on behalf of Louisiana Fish and Wildlife. Sea Pro, which is located in Newberry, S.C., was quick to respond with five shallow-draft skiffs that will specifically meet the needs of the rescue and recovery efforts in New Orleans.
  11. That is a cool drawing! I always like to see what others are doing, artistic-wise, besides painting minis.
  12. I live about an hour away from the hallowed ground at Lambeau. I go to 1, sometimes 2 games a year. In case no one knew tickets are a bit difficult to come by. (Check eBay!) I have been a Packers fan since I can remember. I do remember seeing Lynn Dickey and Paul Coffman play. Team I hate: The Viqueens, and Dallas. (even though I would draft Daunte in a heartbeat in my fantasy football league.)
