      Running outta room! 20 minis takes up a lot of space! :P

      I was hoping to pick and choose $100 worth of minis and get everything I needed. Not working! This will easily cost me $300 before it's over. It's getting scary to think about how many minis I want considering how many I already have.

      Yeah I'm sitting at $500 because I know when Tiamat and other surprises hit I'm gonna be like, budget-what?!?

  3. I've painted a ton of stuff since just before and after ReaperCon and really need to do some camera time to post pics. I'm just having too much fun painting!!!

      Paint! Paint! Paint!

  4. Multiple entries for ReaperCon are engaged at various different parts of the creative process!!

  5. It's looking like removing mould lines from Wyrmgear will take longer than painting Wyrmgear.

      Sounds a lot like my Super Dungeon Explore game. Putting the things together and removing flash and mold lines is so tedious.

      On Wyrmgear the lines are too large to file with a sanding needle, so I'm literally using an exacto and sliced into my finger last night.

      Ouch! Yeah, that's definitely way worse. Hope it wasn't too deep. >_<'

      It's a mystery that something like that hasn't happened to me yet.

  6. chibi eyes for my spirit of the forest!

  7. Painting at Starbucks again!

      Yeah, I'm pretty bummed. Can't justify expense. If the hubby was even remotely interested in painting. Despite my best efforts.

  8. Got started painting 4 figures tonight. It seems I can no longer paint one at a time and all 4 are quite different.

  9. Excited to post shots of the two figures I just finished. That'll have to wait until tomorrow.

      Haha you clearly never sleep! I however had to get some rest. Pictures will be forth-coming.

      Well darn, the coffee will be cold by the time I get there... unless I invent a transporter or TARDIS.

  12. I'm dying for my Basius 2 bases as I've been very inspired by some ideas using them!

    1. CorallineAlgae

      CorallineAlgae

      You said it! The more I look at them the more possibilities I see. Can't wait to see how you use them.

  13. I'm supremely motivated to paint, but am unable to find the time to do so....

      Not even that time between brushing and spitting the toothpaste on the sink? ;)

      (also, don´t mix the brushes)

    2. Adrift

      Haha I wish! I've just found that doing what I was doing with sacrificing sleep to get in more painting time was killing me at work b/c on less sleep I just don't have the same level of patience for dealing with patients and families...so I'm trying to find a better balance despite working more to prep for the holidays.

      You could teach painting therapy to your patients...

      But really, I know the feeling, between my son, my new wife, work and studies, I bearly have time to do a 15 min painting every week.

  14. Resumed painting after a second long shift at the hospital. It felt great!!!

  15. Cannot get motivated to paint...

      Take your time. Read a book, go see the movies, play games... This is a hobby, take a time apart from it and sooner than you realize you will be eager to do "that dragon over there".

      I've just been really busy with other life stuff that is taking immensely more stress off my plate than say..painting and ignoring the 'to-do' list would..ya know?

  16. I'm finally making real effort on painting the 5 figures for the Bones v. Metal challenge round 2. Pray for my sanity.

  17. I'm currently working on 7 miniatures at once. 5 for the Bones v. Metal and two more entries for contests; the most I've ever done at one time.

      Oh cool, thought you might be doing some other contests as there are a few out right now on various blogs and sites. Looking forward to seeing your sci-fi and giant entries. Still working on my sci-fi diorama, haven't started on the giants stuff yet.

      I'm actually pretty lazy and Reaper is the only site I really post work or post at in any constructive way. I got off social media last fall simply b/c I was just over trying to keep up with everything going on out there. Here at Reaper, almost everything that matters to me shows up here in discussions.

    4. ub3r_n3rd

      Cool, we all are motivated in different ways and the Reaper forum is one of the best places around.

  18. I just realized I've painted 6 miniatures this year and am very excited!

  19. Working on the next Bones v. Metal challenge while working on a large Bones figure and another Imbrian Arts sculpt. Phew.

    1. ub3r_n3rd

      ub3r_n3rd

      You can do it!

  20. Ok, so maybe I have more work to do on the Blacksands Orc after all.

  21. The Blacksands Orc is 'done' for now and won't get any more attention until closer to ReaperCon next year.

  22. Working on the Imbrian Arts Blacksands Orc while planning the next Bones v. Metal challenge!!

  23. I just finished painting up the Ghost King and my 4-year old is painting Judas. :)

  24. OSL is a technique that I need to further develop, but like all learning curves, it is going to take a while.

  25. Awaiting some help in the mail from a fellow member for the Bones v. Metal challenge. Going to work on something fun in the meantime.
