  1. Thank you, all. You're very kind. And the minis are sealed, so the drool will just slip off. ::P:


    Seriously, though. Thank you. ::):


    And yes, the bases are scratch built. Made of cork (of course), balsa "boards" that I weathered and damaged, small plastic piping and beams, a bit of glue and sand. Regrettably, I blew it using Envirotek Light for a water effect on the little "dock" base. The static grass growing around the posts in the green goo wicked up the water effect to become a big blob on each post. :angry: So, lesson to you all. Static grass 'wicks' Envirotek Light. I guess you have to put grass on after the fact? (Anyone with tips on using this stuff, please fire off and school me).


    Oh, and Meg -- I love lamp. ::D:

  2. So these guys tickled my fancy and while I don't play Malifaux, I decided to paint them. I'd planned on doing more freehand detail on the robes -- some arcane symbols, some more patchwork, and such -- but I think I've put too much time into them at the moment and need a break. So here's how they stand at the moment. I may go back and tinker with more detail once I've refreshed myself on other figs. Or not. We'll see. In beginning to paint the details that are there, I began to worry that they would get too busy quickly, especially with how small they are and with the many fold on the robes.


    Anyhow, here they are.

    Witchling Stalkers (back)


    And a bit bigger (if not a bit reduced in resolution)...

    As always, anything you want to say (tangental or not)... fire away. ::):

  3. You can Dullcote before you're finished painting, Kara. It'll help protect your work to that point. A lot of painters do take this precaution, but I find paint doesn't stick as well to dullcoted paint than it otherwise normally does. I've been able to peel up paint and remove it, which is helpful for correcting freehand mistakes. And dullcoting for this reason is actually quite helpful. Otherwise, I paint to the end before sealing.


    So if you're fighting adhesion now, I'd recommend you mix in some mat medium to your paint. It'll help improve adhesion and knock off some shine.

  4. Meg --


    Transportation -- feetz

    Catz -- none out of freezer

    Staying in -- Yes. See #1.

    Job -- Um. Yes, please.

    LIkes to travel -- See #1.

    Kids -- None that I know of. :;):

    Ex-wife -- they haven't found her... yet....

    Clingy -- Girl, I got things to do.

    Bathes -- err... :unsure:

    WoW -- oh, &$%*@# it!!!! :angry:



  5. Whiz for you I'd make the exception :poke:


    Did I already tell you once that I'd marry you? Or was I dreaming that? <scratches head>


    Indeed. But I believe it was my inadequate ability to... err... um... apparate... long distances and frequently that soured you on the union. :down:


    Blast this muggle blood!!! <_<



  6. Beautiful as always. The sculpt's upper half isn't so interesting (no fault of Angorak's unless we ping him for not painting tattoos ::P: ) but teh bottom half is super -- both sculpt and paint. Very lovely.


    And I love that snow. What is it??? I think I've asked that before, but I have I ain't so bright as to remember the answer. :;):

  7. Being a frog prince myself (anyone care to kiss me to find out?)




    Man, I never get to have any fun! <_<


    @ John Lee -- I've been eyeing them, too. I've thought to make a chess board of them, but don't know what I'd use for the other side... Maybe Confrontation Clan Mid-Nor? Maybe not...


    Likely another idea that'll simply be shelved under "someday", but fun to consider.

  8. I read that a little while ago and was completely amazed. I wonder how it all went down? Whether the intruder lunged at the student, believing the sword to be a cheap replica? I can see -- assuming the sword had some quality -- the student, especially if he was trained/skilled, lopping off the man's hands and disemboweling him before the hands hit the ground -- much to the assailant's amazement.


    Great story.

  9. Your predilection for arming small, adorable creatures continues to alarm me.


    Take this instance, for example. You're risking a genocide, particularly were you to arm an entire colony. As you know once armed, it would only be a matter of time before one or more penguins would attempt to position themselves as "Emperor".
