  1. Being a frog prince myself (anyone care to kiss me to find out?), I love this model. You've done a super job with him. Very, very lovely. Skin is full of life, and the eyes just shine. Great work! Congratulations on a wonderful model.
  2. Y'all note that our gracious host Dargrin was so good as to assign me -- a Whizard of some importance -- my own personal guard while visiting his castle. Thank you, Sir!
  3. 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.
  4. 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".
  5. Hmm... as a painter who to this point hasn't done any historical work, I find this thread to be very interesting. Good stuff. Thanks, Doug.
  6. Ah, ha! :lol: I love that you used the Geico slogan! LOL!!! Those are some of my favorite commercials of all time. Very nicely done, of course. Beautiful. How did you make the flowers (and is that a flutterby?) in the shrubs?... (strongly resisting bush/shrubbery humor here... must... not.... reveal... sophomoric tendencies.... gack! )
  7. Nah. We're all just among our own kind. So we're all at ease.
  8. Philly to anywhere, New England is a pretty long drive. But if you're willing to make the trek, we'd be glad to have you.
  9. More photos added here: HERE And yeah, Jame... we'll do our best to do another here before long and get you in.
  10. So there you go. Pics from the day from my camera. I think there may yet be some camera phone photos about. That all said, who wants to see more photos of Helltown?
  11. All right. As promised -- Pics from the N.E. Paint Day at Dargrin's home. Honestly, there aren't that many. I think we were all pretty busy painting or playing Warlord. But here's what I have (in order around the very spacious and very cool gaming basement): Our gracious host: Dargrin Dilvish the Deliverer Karabean Yours truly Wandering Child Qwyksilver Fuzzy Craig Helltown Battle pic 1 (someone will need explain) Battle pic 2 (someone again will need explain) Beer makes for happy. More beer makes for more happy. (Is it any wonder Dilvish was rear-ended while driving??? JK) "The rules say WHAT???"
  12. Damn that Fuzzy Craig! Making a liar of me! I'll get him!!!
  13. It was a great time. I think we had... 9 from the boards. A fellowship! Dargrin Qwyksilver Dilvish Karabean Vil-hatarn Wandering Child Whizard Helltown Fuzzy Craig (and his wife and adorable lil' girl) And not to worry, despite her best efforts (yet again) I have photos of HT. But hey gang! We forgot a group photo! Oh, well. Thanks again, Mike! Your home is beautiful, BTW.
  14. Definitely loads of thanks to Dargrin and his wife, Kris (spell?), for their hospitality! Thank you, thank you, both! As always... a pleasure to see everyone again and to meet new folks. I had a great time and hope we can all do it again very soon (with any luck in my pending new space...) I have pictures, even of Helltown. They are pending. I'll post soon enough, likely in Dilvish's thread HERE Looking forward to the next one. And if anyone is ever in the Peterborough/Keene area, just holler. We can slap some paint.
  15. How about just footprints on a base? Then you could use it for an invisible rogue, warrior, mage, ninja, or Indiana Jones.
  16. About 12 hours till I hit the road. All packed and ready. Everybody else ready?
  17. Indeed! Nearly there! Damn the rains, we'll have fun regardless!
  18. All right. I'm all about Space Monkeys.... but giving one a blaster? That's just plain irresponsible. One step shy of giving it a lightsaber, which as anyone who's played Wii's Super Smash Bros. Brawl knows, leads to utter chaos. For shame, sir! For shame! Otherwise, digging the scarabs. Glowy blue gives a nice creepiness to them.
  19. It's likely there're all sorts of people who like this film (not yet mentioned in the other thread), but among folks I know there are few. So here goes: The Gods Must Be Crazy. Talk about a giggle fest for me. I lose it just thinking about the rhino putting out the campfire.
  20. Wow. That's quite a beautiful miniature. Very well done. Jen must be thrilled. Great color selections. And even better paint. Very clean and well done. Would certainly care to see closer pics as well as one of the back. Great work. I feel you. I only recently started playing with water effects, too, and believe me when I say I totally screwed up a finished custom base.
  21. Hmm? Sorry? You're saying there is a better route than 111 to 93? Oh. Do tell (Mike?) And let's see... what am I bringing. Well... 3 Wyrd Witchling Stalkers, nearly finished but for their swords and final detailing/highlights on robes (if I don't finish tonight)... 1 Rackham Goblin Warrior, primed, based, and pre-lined.... maybe my Liriel to begin prepping for my Kvothe project or else something Halloweeny (it's nearing that time, after all)... and I suppose that's all I need. Maybe one or two others I have primed in case I get bored with any of the above. The figures for prepping will depend on whether I want to pack files and sanding gear... I may be too lazy to break it all out.
  22. Been there... Too many times. You'll learn to become very patient with hand drilling... A few twists... back out... clean the bit out... back in... a few twists... etc. Slow, I'll grant you, but keeps you from transforming into the Hulk when you snap a bit off in the damn model. (and always flush, right? Never so you can use the bit as your pin and forget about it...)
  23. Nice exchange piece. Pyreos is very lucky.
  24. Great! Thanks, Kate. Assuming Mike doesn't have a better route from Nashua, that's what I'll take.
