  1. As regards box starting and international shipping (I guess I should have included that before): I can be a box starter if needed (though I'd like advice on how much stuff should go in). I would like to avoid shipping internationally if possible.
  2. Actually, wouldn't you want to be right at the beginning then? So you get them in the box and then everyone after you can have a chance to pick one up. Well, I suppose it would be a bit much to ask the organizers to put the one guy who missed a link as the actual box starter, lol! Its a good point though. I think it would actually work just as well if I were nubmer 2, as the box will still go back to the box starter in the end so everyone gets a pop.
  3. Thanks! dsmiles sent me a PM, and it worked like a charm! gmail = 1, Verizon = 0. It looks like the issue is sorted out for the future. I'd love to join in on the next one! 2cp; I vote Ironhammer gets put near the beginning of one of the circuits for next time? Why thank you! It would actually be kind of nice to be a bit further up the chain. I'm a fairly obsessive mini converter, with scads of nicely converted figures which I then never get round to painting, and I've often thought it would be nice to see what someone else could do with some of the stuff I've made. I figured I could drop a few of my pieces into the box, and then see how people paint them up! Being further up the chain means more people would get a crack at it.

  5. Well, like I said, I was checking the thread pretty much daily, and was waiting for a notification that I'd received a PM (I can only assume that when if finally did come it got caught as spam in my old email acount...I've since switched it out for my gmail, hopefully I won't have any similar issues with that) . I figured that Buckyball was just held up by the Christmas holiday, so I didn't really think anything of it until I saw the completion notice today.
  6. Uh.... I've been watching this thread for months (checked it almost daily, actually), and just realized that dsmiles groups was recently flagged "completed"? I never received a box....... Turns out that Buckyball contacted me right away on Dec 19 for my address. However, I never got an email notification, even though my account is setup to do so. Going to have to look into this figure to figure out where the missed connection is. Sorry folks!

  8. I don't think it is the best paintjob I've ever done, but it is I think pretty much my favorite. Painted for a Christmas mini competition on the Reaper forum many years ago.
  9. Definitely this little lady here. I am afraid I don't have a painted version of this figure as of yet. She was converted for the 2012 Hasslefree Miniatures sculpting competition. All the entrants were to use the same armature by Kev White as a basis, and convert the figure from there, in categories of Sci-fi, fantasy, and modern. I entered one for each, and I am very proud to say that I placed for my steampunk version in the sci-fi category! Turnout for the competition was quite high, and given that the awesome folks at HFM had promised to make a casting of each entry (assuming it could be feasably cast), it was not until this fall that we got out entries back along with our pewter copies, and I have not yet made the time to actually sit down and paint her. The winners are all supposed to be added to the HFM line at some point in the future, so if any of you really like this mini you should be able to get a copy of it eventually from HFM. The original starting point Eureka, pewter!!!
  10. I really wasn't expecting to get the third one done in time, but I did! Dr. Towton was tired of the ghost stories. Tired of the unexplained dissappearances. And tired of the nebulous moanings coming across the harbor from Horesman's Isle every night of the three quarter moon. Tonight, he was going to row over to the dreaded island and put the legend to rest once and for all! He would either prove that the dreaded Necquis of Horseman's Isle was only a myth....or else destroy it forever! Stumbling out of the house with only a greatcoat draped over his nightshirt was perhaps not the most dignified way to go about on an adventure, but the decision was made at the spur of the moment and Dr. Towton was in a hurry to reach the island before the moaning subsided. It took a bit of time to rouse that ragamuffin giant Dr. Towton had let sleep in the stables ever since the poor creature was cast off by Dr. Frankenstein, but Little Junior was the only person....to use the term loosely....whom Dr. Towton could trust to keep his silence. Stepping out boldly onto the Island with his mishapen companion, Dr. Town boldly presses to investigate abandoned watchtower of Horseman's Isle..... Dr. Towton, made from the gravedigger's body with the modified head of 50195, and a bit of converting to give his a sword. Confronting the beast! Group in progress shot.

  12. Way awesome! St. Mary has a bit of a Maria von Trapp sort of twirl to her pose, which I think is actually very effective for the subject matter. Well done to both you and Andy!!
  13. Contrary to public belief, Dr. Frankenstein did not stop with his first monster. He tried again. But this time, he took care to ensure his latest creation had nothing but joy and benevolence in it's secondhand heart. And he succeeded.....to well, in fact. The second monster of Frankenstein was a wholly benevolent soul with no thought or ambition other than to spend his days in the tavern, drinking beer and making merry song in good company. The creature became wholly a wastrel, his only accomplishment being to have learned to "play" upon the concertina to accompany his joyful drinking songs. In utter disgust and despair, Dr. Frankenstein at last abandoned the art of monster-making, and took up plastic surgery instead. I carved off the face of the flesh golem and replaced it with one of my own sculpting. The concertina is made from the flexible bit of three drinking straws with carved greenstuff on the ends. This next one is just a simple head swap with a piece from 03357. Though persons who feel strongly about their metallics will likely have some criticisms (no doubt well deserved), I nonetheless feel rather proud that upon showing this mini to my brother, he tactfully commented that it looked a bit like I'd simply left the pewter bare.....at which point I informed him that the mini was a bone (barring the head that is). Behold: The Necquis of Horseman's Isle.

  16. I like the fire marker! Just curious, did you get the idea from this video?
  17. Thanks!! Very appropriate, really, given that the Mantigryph (I like that!) was made from leftovers from another conversion, which was itself inspired by the work of someone else (I'll have to post pics of that whenever I get round to painting it).
  18. You ghoul! Here we are all left with no idea how it all ends! Well done sir, and I thoroughly enjoyed the backstory. It encourages me to flesh out my thoughts on my own minis. The Worlds in Froggy's Head really ought to put down into worlds on paper. Have you ever considered writing it all 'properly', so to speak?
  19. Aha, but you DID identify it! Actually, it wasn't until I'd already fully converted it and had it mostly painted that it struck me that all it needed now was a horn.
  20. You mean like this? Of course, this one wasn't done in a serious frame of mind in any way.....kudos to anyone who can identify what it is (a simple summary of features will lead you in the correct direction).
  21. Wow! Thanks for all the kind comments everyone! I think this is the first thread ever I've started that't been flagged "hot".
