    A little blurry, but one "Snow flecked grave mourned by no man" done.

    The stone is a base of Cold Grey, given an all over Brown Wash, then a Green Wash over the lower half, then drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white.

    The wreath is a base of Medium Olive, with drybrushes of Ochre Yellow and Leather Brown with a Brown Wash. While the ribbon is (Scarlett Red > Scarlett Red/Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash).

     

    Just got to get the base done and then I'll move on to the next one (I'm thinking Past as she's also fairly uncomplicated).

    Very nice work on the gold and purple. The blue seems a bit out of place.  Thanks for sharing your work.  Do you play? Or just collect? 

     

     

     

    Thanks!

    I was worried that purple shields as well would have been too much purple.

    I don't play any version of Warhammer, I don't have anywhere near enough patience to paint a whole army (I haven't even finished a single Warhammer Underworlds team and there's only like a handful of minis on each!).

    She looks great!

    Awesome background story, wouldn't want to meet her!

     

    Thanks!

     

    Thanks for all the Likes everybody!

    Took far too long (I really need to get back into the habit of painting for at least a little bit every day), but Future's dress is done!

     

    It's a base of Pure Black/Hexed Lichen, washed with Black Wash, then given highlights of Pure Black/Hexed Lichen and Pure Black/Hexed Lichen/Warlord Purple, and finally a coat of Purple Wash.

    I also had to repaint her hair because I kept making a mess painting her hood.

     

    Got to paint the grave next, luckily the wreath takes up a big chunk so I don't need to try and write any names on it!

    They didn't know her husband was dead, but they knew where she lived? Yeah, that not shady at all.... :rolleyes:

     

    That bit's not too suspicious. Always the eternal optimist, my Housemate insists on sending her family Christmas cards every year with a return address, just in case they felt like sending one back (Although I'm guessing they never actually open them, or they would've noticed the lack of Hubbys name all this time, plus the change in handwriting when I took over doing them a few years ago).

     

    At least my Housemate is happy about seeing her family again, but she's told me this was probably a one-off.

  5. Suspicious goings on today.

     

    Some of the Housemates family turned up for the first time in decades (They had presents for her and her husband, who's been dead for about 20 years), to wish her a Merry Christmas.

     

    Not sure what's caused this sudden bout of reaching out, but on the plus side I've inherited a present.

    If you haven't seen Dredd with Karl Urban, you might find that more true to the comics, and I enjoyed it. Definitely the faceless avatar of lawful neutral justice. I still like the Stallone version too, on my list to watch again.

     

    Yep, own that one too.

    It has the better Dredd, but the rest is a bit too toned down and "realistic", still a good film though.

     

    Hopefully one day there'll be a third attempt that combines the best of the previous two.

  7. Omicron is spreading like wildfire over here.

    So far Plans A and B haven't worked and there's a lot of opposition to Plan C (Apparently one more lock-down will destroy civilisation as we know it), and if it does come into effect it won't until after Christmas (Because viruses take the day off too).

    Once again the idea seems to be if we just ignore it, it'll go away.

    DEC 18 — DEC 19

    WEEKEND QUESTION (s)

    Have you ever tapped remove, or even unfriended someone, on facebook for no reason other than you found their new profile picture to be irksome? 

     

    Do you play any fb games?  If those still exist?

     

    If you are not using fb (well done!) what would it have to change before you would join it?

     

    I don't think I have any friends on Facebook, I just follow a few companies and artists.

     

    Don't play Facebook games, didn't know they were a thing.

     

    While I am using it, I do wish it would change what it chooses to show me, I keep missing out on stuff because it insists on showing me the same couple dozen things for days on end.

    I should have said to make sure you get the latex caulk, not silicone, the silicone will not take paint where the latex will.

     

    Will do!

    Hair!

     

    Past's is Ochre Yellow/Iraqi Sand > Sepia Wash > Ochre Yellow/Iraqi Sand > Ochre Yellow/Iraqi Sand/Off-white.

    Present's is Scarlett Red/Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash > Fire Orange/Ochre Yellow (With a couple brushtips of Scarlett Red) > Red Wash.

    Future's is Stone Grey/Ghost Grey > Grey Wash (This didn't work very well) > Stone Grey/Ghost Grey > Purple Wash > Stone Grey/Ghost Grey.

     

    I also tidied up Past's eyes as best as I could, plus fixed the bit of Black that got on the side of Future's nose.

     

    Next up will probably be making a start on Future's dress since she's mostly one colour.
