  1. Another pair of tanks for my Terran army.
  2. From the "How fast do you paint?" thread. This makes me curious. When people talk about Tabletop quality, are we talking about the same level of result? I've seen some 1-10 scale references, but even that is pretty subjective. I'm not even clear on my own what my own definition should be. I could be like: Basic coat; wash; with or without drybrushing; looks "good enough" at arms length on the game table. And by good enough, I mean that elements of the mini are distinguishable, but the smaller details might be lost (i.e. belts and buckles are merged into one color). But I've seen m
  3. Why is it so hard to get a game of Pathfinder going? Where are the people who are sane and actually interested in playing? I have moved to a new state and I really want to get a game of Pathfinder going and I am being stymied at every turn. There is a local game shop that has a Pathfinder night but it seems incredibly cliquish and if you're not a "pro" then you are kinda ostracized. Also, and this is a minor thing, the gaming area seems to have a lingering flatulence stench. I am an adult dang-it! I demand to not be surrounded by farts and snobby 19 year old's. I am not a "pro", I haven
  4. Another month and some more CAV:SO UTF models done. Up first are the Tsukai. I just got two of these from the kickstarter. But I really like how they painted up so will likely be ordering more at some point. Same colour scheme as all my UTF. I've decided on using a metallic (P3 Blighted Gold with a brown wash) for the windows, some sort of future tech enhanced composite with laser absorptive properties I believe.....
  5. Realizing I wouldn't have time to do my first actual CAV this month due to another project, I quickly mobilized an couple of Ashigaru to make sure I made the RPChallenge quota. It's important to remember to paint the inside of the back missile pod section before gluing....luckily my glue must be getting old as I was able to get the pieces apart.... And here is a group shot of my UTF forces to this point. Hopefully some Big Stompy Robots will be joining the team before too much longer....
  6. The second set of UTF minis I did this month were the Ryoshi. Boy are these guys low and wide...nice and quick to paint though, with some interesting detail you can work with.
  7. Here is more Zombicide Walkers I've been slowly working on in spurts. They are tabletop Quality (to me). Maybe I should make the next batch bloodier. And a photo of the small collection I've managed to paint. PS: After all this recent talk about table top and speed painting threads, I think I might test myself to see how quickly I can finish one.
  8. I've been slacking hardcore on my Alice project, and hoping to conjure some motivation I decided to tackle a few of these minis as a quick project. They are part of the board game "The Adventurers: The Pyramid of Horus". Fun game with 11 pretty great minis. Here are two of the mummies and one ex-military guy. Unfortunately I left the instruction manual at my folks' place a couple hours away, so I wasn't able to follow the color scheme in the manual like I planned, but I had fun making some up. I'm especially happy with the merc's BDU style pants and the weathering/decay of the white skir
  9. Here are 3 CAV:SO Wolf tanks, done in the same UTF colour scheme as the Dingos I did a few weeks ago. It's a beautiful day out so I took them out on the deck to get some quick pics... As with the Dingo, the turret seems to stay fine so I haven't glued them. Hopefully by the end of next month I'll actually get a CAV painted for my CAV:SO Terran army.....
  10. This will take a while to complete, but these two are going on a base as a performing duo, probably used in camp vignettes rather than adventurers. I have spares of both, so I can try again as individuals as I am moved to. I wish I had someone with a recorder (the flute kind) and a drum in similar old school size/style...
  11. Here is my Dwarf Wizard, adventuring companion to my friend's Dwarf Barbarian I posted the other day. As I mentioned elsewhere, in D&D 5th Edition a wizard can cast without penalty in any armor they are proficient with, and Mountain Dwarves get proficiency with light and medium armor by default. They also get battleaxe (and handaxe, throwing hammer and warhammer) profs.....so my character is walking around in Scale Mail with a Battleaxe, hoping all the "let's kill the wizard" first types will enjoy their encounter with the Barbarian...
  12. We're starting a new D&D 5th Edition campaign soon. I offered to paint up a Dwarf Barbarian figure for one of the players who doesn't paint. His only Dwarf Barbarian figure otherwise would have been the old D&D prepaint one, and if you've seen that, it isn't very impressive. Now I'd been building my Dwarf Wizard for the game, and having realized that there is no casting penalty in 5th Ed for wearing armor you are proficient in, I was painting up an Oathsworn Dwarf fighter type, in scale mail and with a battleaxe (which he's also proficient with). He'll be posted up this weekend, onc
  13. Recently received my CAV:SO kickstarter rewards. I'm going be painting up some United Terran Federation figs first, because I got the most of that faction. For them I'm going to be going with more traditional military colour schemes. So, for my first Big Stompy Robots, I went with....tanks....Having never done Big Stompy Robots (other than Robotech, which don't count, since they got painted more like the cartoons.) I wanted to start with something more, well, real. Plus, tanks are cool, which is why I got a ton of them. These were very quick to paint up, maybe 4-5 hours total
  14. We are gearing up to start a new D&D campaign at the end of the month. It'll be 5th Edition and robinh is running it. A friend (who doesn't paint) is playing a Dwarf barbarian and I'm running a Dwarf wizard, so I said I could paint up a fig for him too, since the only D&D prepaint Dwarf Barbarian is pretty lame... These are the two figs we came up with, first the barbarian and then my wizard. So yeah, not exactly the norm, but 5th Ed rules are interesting. A spellcaster can cast spells in any armor he is proficient with. And a mountain Dwarf gets proficiency with light
  15. Nothing special here, just a quick tabletop paintjob of Mason Thornwarden in Bones: Edit: Ignore the giant pics here, if I delete them in this post they disappear from the other post :-p
  16. Recently received Wave 1 of fulfillment for the MERCS: Recon kickstarter. While there are some quality issues (which they appear to be working on) the game itself seems pretty cool with a ton of replayability. Wave 1 was a copy of each of the two versions of the core game: Counter Threat and Assassination Protocol. Each box comes with 20 plastic miniatures: 2 squads of 5 MERCS from different factions and 10 security forces (5 SecForII and 5 SecForIII, with all the copies in each box the same, but different sculpts between boxes). Wave 2 will provide a LOT more squads and figures, at least w
  17. Here it is! Conclusive evidence of the existence of aliens!!!! Sorry, I may not have got enough sleep this weekend..... Anyway, picture, if you will, a race from another planet, not unlike our own. They discover a new planet with intelligent life. While they journey to meet them, they study the broadcasts of this race's own space exploration. From what they learn they pattern their own uniforms to follow the same colour system as the great explorers of this new species they journey to meet. These guys are just done to tabletop. I needed something to paint at wor
  18. Well, odds are you either watch/watched Robotech, or the title of this post made no sense.... I've been purchasing Big Stompy Robots for a little while now and finally got a chance to start painting some. (Ongoing Big Stompy Robot WIP is over here ) Decided to start with some Robotech figs from Palladium's never-ending kickstarter (Original delivery esitmate: dec 2013, latest wave 2 delivery guestimate: 2nd quarter of 2016....). I've started with the Zentraedi (the invading aliens) as my friend wanted to do the UEDF (United Earth Defense Forces). The bulk of the Zentraedi forces ar
  19. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1104585808/quick-land-0 Hlleo Wlord, I could really use some vocal support... I don't want anything to do with anything other than mass producing the ground everyone needs under their games. I just re-launched after some very helpful constructive insight from BZLeebub (thanks brother). I just lined up a game store as well.... its a brand new game store with brand new owners, im going to demonstrate how quickly I can do what I do. Ill be documenting everything that happens and using it to boost the kick starter... (hopefully) -Nomad Jack (
  20. Episode VII The WIP Awakens It's a time of uncertainly. Dreariness grips the forums as the influence of the Dread Winter spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic forces of the Forumites. As they struggle against the dark and cold of the enemy, these brave painters may yet awaken the skill and strength needed to complete new figures.... Now that I've got THAT out of my system.....I think I'll be painting some Sci-Fi stuff over the next little while, mostly Bones 3 stuff but anything else that doesn't deserve a separate, like some old resin barrel
  21. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1104585808/quick-land Hlleo Wlord, I could really use some vocal support... Its more important to know what I'm doing is right rather than actually trying to make any sales right now. I don't want anything to do with anything other than mass producing the ground everyone needs under their games. I'm in the process of lining up a recently opened game store so I can show how quickly I can make that happen for people.... -Nomad Jack (thanks for your eyeball)
  22. In preparation for 2016 I'm trying to get some of my half-finished 2015 minis off the shelf and into the done pile. I had no color scheme in mind for this mini so I grabbed some paint at random. Most of the time that I do this I decide that it was a horrible idea and put the paints back, but on occasion I just roll with it. Just to practice something different I desaturated all of the paints with white and gave her the '80s pastel look. About halfway through I did decide that I didn't really like this mini, but hey, she was a bonus and not the reason I made my purchase in the first place.
  23. Wizard I painted up for the Pathfinder game I'm in. The robes had a base of rich green, brought up with leaf green, warboss green from GW, and finally warboss mixed with some GW flash gitz yellow. The sleeves are palamino gold with agrax earthshade, and then brought up with the flash gitz yellow. Flesh was the Reaper Fair Skin triad with GW reikland fleshshade. Hair was the blond hair triad. The shirt started with ritterlich blue, going up to ultramarine, and finally a highlight with a bit of LED blue mixed in. Pants were done in rainy grey, hit with the agrax earthshade, and then brough
  24. This green dragon hatchling was painted about the time as the blue. He was just waiting on some grass before getting his picture taken. A month later I finally worked up the energy to glue some grass to his base, though he is still shedding a bit. Just like the other hatchling he was a quick tabletop paint and not all of his mold lines were removed. Someday he might get to chase some 1st level PCs around.
  25. No word on what the actual scale on these is, but it looks like soon we will be able to buy a bucket of little white Stormtrooper army men and one black Darth Vader. http://toyland.gizmodo.com/a-death-star-filled-with-plastic-stormtroopers-is-a-bet-1741121325 There are pictures of them on a table (follow the links in the story) and they look roughly in the ballpark of gaming scale.
