  1. and shipped today. Tracking show they should land on Thursday! Woohoo!
  2. Been really wanting some stompy Mech gaming action in my life. Not really wanting to to do the Battle tech thing again. Been following Talon on FB and the 20% off BF/CM deal intrigued me. Was going to just get the rules to look it over, then realized that the Starter offer included four mechs. Well, ALRIGHTY THEN! Went with the Malvernis four pack, then added another four mechs, and a couple of aircraft to try out. Singing, "I'll have CAV for Christmas"
  3. Thanks for the birthday wishes. Sorry I'm so late in responding but I've been ill since the end of last month. Started as Influenza B and then developed into pneumonia! Only now getting a bit of energy back. Did get tested and thankfully NOT Covid!
  4. Thought some of you might find this of interest: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cultofpaint/deorgard-by-cult-of-paint At Cult of Paint we've taught painting classes to hundreds of people all over the world. We make painting tutorials for YouTube and Patreon. We have signature series airbrushes with renowned manufacturer Harder & Steenbeck AND we produce a 54mm sci-fi miniatures range and bust collection that has won multiple international painting awards. Now it's time for something really cool............ OUR FIRST FANTASY MINIATURES RANGE!!!!! Dræfend bust painted by David Colwell @davecolwell725 Ever since we created our sci-fi miniatures range we've had the bug for creating awesome models for people to enjoy painting. We LOVE fantasy settings and wanted to create our own world to explore the characters so often associated with fantasy and folklore, but with our own interpretations. And so Deorgard was born, with the elves being the first race we wanted to bring to life as gorgeous miniatures and busts...... Heargeard bust painted by Rodrigo Ciprés @rodrigo.akore Releasing the range in one go ensures we create tonnes of excitement while also enabling painters to get their favourite models from day one with no long gaps between characters coming out. And it means we can crack on with working on more miniatures for you to add to your collections! As we begin to explore this wild land we wanted to introduce some elves from different regions of Deorgard. PLAY In Heargeard we meet a woodsman. A guardian of the forests and the dark places where some of the most ancient parts of the land still endure. Heargeard concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by David Colwell ( yes that base is insane ) As the trees give way to the grasslands a hunter needs not only patience but the frightening speed and savagery to survive. Dræfend is one such elf who excels here. She has learned to hunt as part of a pack, accompanied by one of the great wolves that make their homes in the foothills nearby. Dræfend & Wulf concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Dræfend & Wulf painted by Ruben Martinez @rma_ruben_martinez The land rises sharply and great peaks soar towards the sky. Here we find another symbiosis of elf and beast. Whilst Sceotend may be blind she does not lack sight, her hawk's third eye providing unrivalled clarity and vision. concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Sceotend painted by Richard Gray @daemonrich An equally harsh environment can be found in the vast desert that covers much of the centre of Deorgard. In this ever-changing and ruthless sea of sand, those such as Læl's word is law. She is judge and executioner, swift and merciless at dealing out punishment to any transgressors. Læl concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Læl painted by Andy Wardle @andywardle_artwork As primal and challenging as the landscape of Deorgard is there are still places where societies have settled and thrived. Guardians such as Indryhten stand sentinel over sacred places and those elected by their peers to rule these bastions of advancement. Indryhten concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by Andy Wardle
  5. Pictures of the initial figures with Sir Forscale.
  6. Wow! These are freaking great. It's fun looking at the figures and identifying bits and bobs on them. It took me a moment looking at the one rat to recognize that you'd painted a Coke Logo on the chest plate. Really nice work on these.
  7. I finally go the game a week ago. Figures looked good at a quick glance. Much bigger than I thought they were going to be! I'll try to take some pictures tonight after I get home.
  8. They're 1.5" across the flat, so that's the smallest dimension. While it may be possible for someone to swallow one it seems pretty unlikely.
  9. Stumbled across this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here. Be a different way of putting together woods and stuff for traditional wargaming. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/babbletree/terragon-terrain Pretty much the entire 'leader' page is GIFs so I'm not going to try and copy it over to here.

  11. Ooh! That's quite lovely. Great job!
  12. Just did a quick Google search "what is the population of the united states 2020" and that was the number it came up with.
  13. At the risk of this going beekeepers in a real hurry, this is one of the more callous statements I think I've read. A 10% increase in mortality in the US? Eh, just a number. Current population in the us is ~331million. ~200k/300m = .06%. Not really statistically significant. Tell that to the people who didn't need to die from this. Tell that to the families left behind. YOU go tell them their loved ones weren't worth that much. You're currently dismissing the equivalent of the ENTIRE population of Salt Lake City, Utah being dead.
  14. She turned out quite lovely! As others have said, the skin is particularly nice.
  15. Finished the tongue and gums. Basecoated the lips and teeth.
  16. Alright, I need to work on the kids and gloss the eyes but otherwise I think they turned out pretty decent.
  17. Did some clean up and under coating on the teeth and eyes, as well as painting the tip of the nose black. Figure if I keep posting maybe I can keep going forward? My hand and arm were cramping up so I was curious as to how much the bust and support actually weighed. Now I know! Bit more than the usual 28mm figure...
  18. Not useful for gaming, but they look like lovely painting challenges: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/arcticencounter/adrift-and-at-peace-resin-miniature-kits-of-man-and-nature Arctic Encounter is a model displaying a traditional Greenland kayak hunter in a peaceful moment witnessing two narwhals - a mother and calf - passing by. The hunter silently observes, draws his paddle from water in order not to disturb them. The model is scale 54mm (1:32), and the kayak is about 16 cm. The whales are about 10 and 16 cm long for calf and mother, respectfully. I aim to make this as historically accurate as possible, but will take some freedom to adapt to the medium and make it visually interesting. I won’t lie, there are a lot of parts. And tiny parts too. And you have to assemble harpoon, harness and bladder with wire, and lots of little bones and wire to hold everything in place. I will include a detailed instruction in kit. Don’t worry, it will be fun! All the different parts of ‘Arctic Encounter’ The Wanderer is a model showing a hiker on a hill with her dog, a Malinois Shepherd, resting and enjoying the view. She has a bottle of water in hand, but the set also comes with interchangable hands holding a wine bottle or a gun, allowing you to tell other stories with the model. She comes with a detailed backpack. The model is size 1:20, or 90 mm. The model comes with a large scenic round resin base. The base is about 95 mm in diameter.
  19. Nice fictional tank. Yes there was a T-28/T-95. The front end looks nothing like what you've printed. This will look cool on the table tho!
  20. Threadomancer powers activate! Finally grabbed this sucker and did some more on it (only been a couple of years). I'd left off with a lot of the fur base coated. That's how it sat. Based on the references I have I felt the arm should be light colored so I gave that a shot tonight. Not sure how I feel about it.
  21. Which sticker are you looking for? I got two in my Swag box order that I doubt I'll do anything with...
  22. Okay I love the paint job! The wings are awesome. Don't take this the wrong way but the flocking on the "base" makes it look as though it's wearing fuzzy slippers...
  23. Turned out quite lovely! I know that once upon a time GW plastics would go super soft if you exposed them to Pine Sol. That was how you used to strip figures back in the good old days! Simple Green has a lot fewer issues.
  24. Have they already come out with a Worstiary?
