  1. Presenting the Ram Pin-up from Kingdom Death, I imagine this is what quest-giving NPCs look like in that world, sketchy, half-naked dudes who always have one more dubious item for you to fetch before they'll let you have the promised fancy sword. I'm reasonably happy with how he turned out. He's a little rough in places, where my brush control wasn't quite up to the task, but I don't think I did too bad. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  2. Feeling blargh today, but I got a bit done:- Did the straps of his harness (Leather Brown > Leather Brown/Bonewhite > Brown Wash) and the clippy bits (Brassy Brass > Brown Wash > Brassy Brass > Polished Gold > Purple Wash). I'll try painting his pants tomorrow, if I'm feeling less blargh.
  3. Not as a kid. I could read from a very early age, but not because I wanted to, so it took me until my teens to get into reading for enjoyment. I still do a bit of reading nowadays after taking it up again a few years ago (I got burnt out on terrible, trashy fantasy books), but nowhere near as much as I did.
  4. Padean now has hair (Fire Orange/Ochre Yellow > Ochre Yellow > Ochre Yellow/Off-white > Sepia Wash) and a shoulder-pad (Bronze > Brown Wash > Bronze > Polished Gold). Harness and pants next.
  5. Turned out I had nothing to worry about, being a carer put me much higher up the list than I thought it would. More importantly, the store was out of Dirty Fries! I will not let such an injustice stand!
  6. Going for my first Covid jab today. I'm a bit confused and worried about how high up on list I am, but at least it gives me an excuse to stop off at Marks & Sparks for some Buttermilk Chicken and Dirty Fries.
  7. Haven't had to wear work clothes for a long time now, so these days it's always the same sweatpants and tee-shirt combo.
  8. Very cool and creepy! I like how the water is 'breaking free' of the confines of the base.
  9. And now I've watched Bill and Ted Face the Music. Didn't think much of it, and I'm beginning to suspect my brain was lying to me about how much I liked the first two (I haven't seen them since they were released).
  10. Woot! Double update day! Since the Champion isn't an proper Underworlds mini, he doesn't have a fancy themed base, and so was easy to wrap up:- Once a mighty gladiator in the fighting pits of ancient Thrul (the ruins of which Silverton is now built upon), on the darkest of nights the Champion can be seen wandering the streets, looking for a worthy opponent to test himself on. Happy with how he turned out, but also happy he's off the table and I no longer have to try and photograph him! Also did a bit more to Padean:- Added highlights of Barbarian Flesh/Dwarf Flesh and Barbarian Flesh/Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh to his skin, then used some thinned Barbarian Flesh/Dwarf Flesh to smooth things out. Also gave him some Old Rose scars.
  11. Thanks! I like undead too, which is fortunate as there's a lot of it in my future. It took me 4 days, but I finally finished painting his axe! (I haven't been well) The Blade is Pure Black/Stormy Blue > Aqua Turquiose > Black Wash > Aqua Torquiose > Chrome, while the handle is Medium Olive/Leather Brown > Sepia Wash > Medium Olive/Off-white drybrush. I was also given the suggestion of trying a Purple Wash on his shoulderpads, doesn't really show in the piccy, but it looks pretty neat in hand. With the Champion almost finished, I started the next one:- Padean the Barbarian. So far his skin is a basecoat of Barbarian Flesh/Dwarf Flesh with a Flesh Wash.
  12. Watched Train to Busan. It was good if rather bleak, except
  13. My sense of smell is pretty hit and miss, so I like really strong scents like hot tar or aniseed.
  14. That's one of the downsides of Kickstarters for me, the long waiting period just kills my enthusiasm. I'll be excited for my Bones 5 stuff when it arrives, but at the moment there's newer, shinier stuff that's got my attention.
