  1. 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't played much in the last few years. I did play a ton of D&D way back in the day but I don't know PF as well but this should not prevent me from finding a group. I know this is probably stupid and I certainly know that this is not a REAL problem, I just wanted to vent. I know a lot of forumites play Pathfinder so I guess if anyone has a suggestion to locating a group to play with that would be welcome. Addendum: I now reside in Gainesville Florida.
  2. 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.....
  3. 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....
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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 skirts on the mummies, though I kind of wish I went with a different color to contrast more from the wraps. Oh well. edit 5/23/16: Rasputin and David Gore, a gunslinger with a sort of film noir/nash bridges mashup vibe going on. I don't have a lot of experience doing all white clothes, which is what the gunslinger is wearing, so it didn't come out the best, but still not bad. Rasputin's pallid flesh and the shadows of his trench coat unfortunately don't show very well in the photo, not sure if that's because of the new background or because of the excessive white on the other mini. Pretty fun sculpts to work with though, and I probably only put 40-60 minutes of actual paint time into each. edit: 5/24/16: Here's Chantal Sarth. This one was pretty fun. I really enjoyed the color palette here, and I think I captured her white blouse better than I did the whites on David Gore. Painting skin well and painting skin quickly are still kind of mutually exclusive for me, but it's passable for tabletop. Here's the character cards from the game by Fantasy Flight Games and Dust Games, art by Edouard Guiton. For most of the characters I tried to stick to the concept art pretty strictly.
  7. 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.....
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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, once I get him on a base. So we decided, since the Barbarian is carrying a quarterstaff and has no appreciable armor, that we'd use a Khael as the figure for his Barbarian, to confuse all the baddies! ( Did I mention robinh is GMing this?? ) Overall I'm quite happy with him, considering he's for game play, so tabletop-ish. The mold line on his back I'd have cleaned up if I'd realized how much it would stand out, but I went into with my usual "If Bones and tabletop then don't clean up mold lines" plan.
  11. 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 for all 4. This is good, as I'm happy enough with the results and I have a lot more UTF to go through. Turrets are not glued, they have a nice peg and hole, not likely to fall out on their own.
  12. 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 and medium armor be default. Also battleaxe... Meanwhile he was planning for his barbarian to be walking around in a big cloak and with a quarterstaff anyway... So we figured this will confuse any intelligent baddies that try to target the wizard first.... Anyway, just roughed in some colours to get started, Had to wait until I got to work to ask him what sort of colours he was thinking for the barbarian, so need to bring in some greens and other nature colours.
  13. 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
  14. 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 with my pledge level. To play the game you don't need to have the SecFor miniatures, as they have counters as well, but you do need the MERCS, so they went to the top of the line. After looking at the figures I decided to start with the EU faction, strictly because they looked like I could fully assemble them before painting, so should be the quickest to get going with (I did play one solo game with them after assembly and before priming just to try out the game (I lost.....but was -> <- this close to winning......)) I painted the EU mostly at work, but ended up finishing them up at home today, so I can seal them tomorrow and we can play on Monday. I'll probably add some individual pics tomorrow morning when the light is better, From left to right are the Analyst, the Sergeant, the Leader, the Medic and the Shock. I was just going for tabletop with the paint job, as these are to play with. It's based off the standard colours from Megacon Games. The basing I kept really simple, but decided to go with the faction colours for the 4 quadrants on the base. With all the squads I'll have I figured it was a way to make sure I had all of the right faction, plus one of the guys in my gaming group is visually impaired, so hopefully this will make it easier for him to pick the MERCS out from the SecFor, once I get them painted.
  15. 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 work so ran down to the Bones storage facility on a Sunday night and picked something from the Chronoscope drawer. They were fun and quick to do. I have 20 more to do so they may end up in here at some point in the future.
  16. 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 are Regult Battlepods, so I've got 24 of these guys to build and paint (plus 12 artillery pods, and 2 scout pods....). So far, two done. Now obviously these guys are tabletop. See, they look much better from a distance: There,now it's much harder to see that I can't make a straight line! Now if you've seen the cartoons, this is pretty much what the battlepods look like. 4 colours, dark lines. Like that. I watched a couple of videos on how people were painting these up. Apparently all these folks have way steadier hands than I do.... Process is simple, prime in white, base coat, seal with gloss, use some sort of marker (I used a Micron 005) to mark in a bunch of lines, gloss coat again, and dull coat. For now I'm not putting any transfers on them. That may change later, once I get them all painted. And I've just painted the bases black for now. With the scale of them I'm not sure exactly what I'd put on the bases. These are 1:285 (aka 6mm). So even though they are quite big figs: a human wouldn't be as tall as the side bits of his foot. In full scale a Regult is listed as around 60 feet tall, so I'm not sure how my normal basing stuff would look. Plus some battles can take place in space....so I'm just leaving them black for now.
  17. 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 (thanks for your eyeball)
  18. 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 terrain pieces I have, will likely end up in here too. Game specific stuff like Counter Blast and (hopefully arriving any day) Mercs: Recon will get their own WIPs. First project, so Bones Gray Aliens. Picked these 5 out at midnight last night so I'd have something to paint today. Gave them a quick scrub and threw them in the paint box to take to work. Gave them all a undercoat of Gray Liner. Based the skin with Rainy Gray. Eyes are Solid Black as will be base coating for any hardware. Thinking about doing the uniforms as if they were an alien Star Trek landing party. Didn't have any decently dark yellows or blues with me, but the obvious red shirt got a base coat of a mix of Walnut Brown and Carnage Red. Goal with these is nice quick table top. As usual for me with Bones tabletop, as the flash was minor it was left as is. Thought the eyes came out decent considering they were testing the fire alarm system randomly throughout lunch....
  19. 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)
  20. 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. For her base I kept with the same look as my previous KD:M minis, but just slapped the paint on quickly for tabletop quality. Also, this is the first mini I've finished using the Reaper skintones that I picked up earlier this month. It's probably the worst face that I've called finished in a long time, but she's off the table.
  21. 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 brought up with linen white. Staff was done in walnut brown and then drybrushed intense brown.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Another week, another survivor that I don't know the name of. (Fluff, who reads it?) For the second female I attempted to conquer the Scale75 Arabic Shadow. Of the paints in the flesh set, it is the one that I find kind of odd. While it's worked ok as a minor component of darker mixes it just doesn't look right next to any of the other colors, especially the lighter ones. In order to get my shadows and highlights to play well together, I tried to make sure that each mix was at least a quarter Arabic Shadow. After many mixes and much layering I've decided that you can get a decent skin out of it, but it was a whole lot of work to recreate something that I believe already exists as part of Reaper's Olive triad. What I have isn't well blended, but I've lost interest in her. This survivor is topless though she does have a conveniently placed arm that covers her just as well as any other fantasy female garb. As such I don't really consider her NSFW, but I've gone ahead and attempted to create a dropbox photo group using just one link. It's working for me, but if anyone has an issue with the link I'll add in separate direct links for each photo. The images are autocropped for preview, but clicking one will start a slideshow. Female Survivor Once I finish the lion I'll do a group shot of all the starting pieces for the game. If I'm feeling particularly motivated I might even touch some of them up with the feedback I've received so far. That said, I'm starting to feel a bit of KD:M burnout so I might work on something unrelated this week.
  25. Here are 2 quick photos, individual photos to come. Started on my computer because the phone is taking some getting used to.
