    The Fantastic Worlds of Grenadier by Terence Gunn

    A revised print edition of Terence Gunn's The Fantastic Worlds of Grenadier has gone live on KS! It's a wonderful book that is chock full of company background, information, and history, as well as pictures galore. Oh, and it is only $35 per copy. If you missed out on the previous print edition, you won't want to miss it this time around. http://kck.st/28OQkTC
  2. My Reaper entry: 02479 Ettin by Jason Wiebe.
  3. My entry: a Superior Models WL-083 Cyclops in Greek Armor. I was going for a bronze NMM, but the end result looks more like aged leather! Oh well, it was still fun to paint.
  4. OK, I really need to finish at least one big dragon this year, so count me in. I have an Ebonwrath that I've been slowly pinning together over the last year, so it's time to finish him. And with any luck, I'll add an old DragonTooth dragon to the mix as well.

    Dark Angels space marine

    I first bought the bulk of my DA army back in 2000, and up until now, I have NEVER COMPLETED one single model. There are some unfinished Deathwing termies, some almost-finished scouts, and a few vehicles with not much more than base coats and a few details on them. So a couple days ago, when I finally finished this test subject, all I could say was "It's about freaking time!" Now all I have to do is keep going, so my poor army doesn't sit around for another decade ;) C&C welcome as usual. You can read the gory details here on my blog.

    Lots of Pictures of my Painted Stuff

    Nice work on the minis. But what I REALLY want to know is how long did it take you to complete your Mississippi project?!? Very impressive, to say the least.

    Adrienne from Customer Serice replied to my email today and now the part description reads "back standard - wings" so hooray for people and companies that still give a hoot about customer service.

    Thanks! I suspected as much, but without an image (or someone else's knowledge), I wasn't 100% sure.

    Anyone happen to know if Matisse's wings are part of his body, or are they an individual piece? Thanks! http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/matisse/latest/14267

    Cyclops Shaman and Extoller.

    I'm totally digging the cyclops as well. The detail on him just pops without appearing exaggerated or overdone. Great stuff!

    Nice work. I like the way your armor turned out, and the skin has that perfect pale-creepy-vampire look to it. If the vampire I'm working on turns out half as well as yours, I'll be mighty pleased.

    Reaper / GW comparison?

    For my D&D needs, Reaper is at the top of my list. There are so many choices for PC minis, it's almost absurd. Every time my group rolls up a new set of characters, I KNOW that I will find a perfect Reaper mini for each party member. And same goes for stocking the monster boxes for my DM. I can find just about anything and everything in the Reaper catalog. If I really must have some pig-faced orcs, well, there's always Otherworld. I've seen a few GW minis that I could use for D&D, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. One thing I will say I like about the GW plastic multi-part minis is the flexibility to create a variety of units right out of the box. I've been putting together some zombies and skeletons for my son to paint, and it is a lot of fun to let him pick out which head, torso, legs, and arms to use for each model. And for customizing, I think it's a lot easier for the garden-variety modeler to mix and match plastic bits (along with some greenstuff) than it is to convert pewter models. I think the best you could do would be to try and get your GW friends to use some Warlord or DHL minis as proxies for GW special characters, commanders, sergeants, that sort of thing.

    Barrow Wardens and their Keeper

    Hi All, I've enjoyed looking at everyone's work here and on various blogs, but it's been far too long since I finished any of my own projects! So here is a trio of undead I finished up today that will be ready for the tabletop this weekend: I jotted a few additional notes about them on my blog, for those who are into that sort of thing. Nothing spectacular, but they should make my fellow players more than a bit nervous when they appear on the gaming table ;)

    World Cup time

    What a great game! We'll see if the lads can keep their composure and give Ghana a little payback on Saturday. The World Cup is "pointless"? I think not.

    14481: Galdanoth, Elf Sniper

    Nicely done, Mercius. Question about the base - is that a disc of wood, or a plastic gaming base?
