  1. Well then ... it's done! We ... are done. After a rather short ride, I finally arrived at the end. Five minutes before lock-down I handed in my "Animals in War" painting challenge entry. As always, it consists of a small background story, together with a more or less well painted miniature. Find the WIP ->here<- I am not all to happy with it, I could have done a lot better, but it's okay. And in the end, I messed up the pictures as well. The good thing is: I could have done worse. *sigh* But well - can't help it. So, here she comes. I tried to translate the original text to English, so if there are mistakes ( I am sure there will be) feel free to correct me. As always: Feel free to comment, but if you just want to say "nice" or "cool", leave a like instead, because I value those as a nod to my participation in the forums. I really don't need "cool"s or "nice"s. The Light Fantastic She sat by the wall, held her breath and listened. After a while, the tripping of many feet broke through the silence. Carefully the warrior woman looked up. She expected to see the enemy's face at any moment. But nothing like that happened. Instead, she could hear a voice, sending shivers down her spine. A calm, mocking pronunciation, unmistakable and probably unique in the world. "Hey, Evi," the unknown speaker shouted, "You can show yourself. I know you're out there." She took a deep breath, smiled grimly and pressed the lamp tighter to her chest. Yes, of course. He knew. He wasn't stupid. Quite the opposite. He was very intelligent - considering the fact he was a baboon. Call it arrogance, but it had been a mistake of the humans to believe monkeys to be of lower intelligence. It was the humans who were stupid. I renewed attempts, the succeeded in raising the intelligence of the primates to a level that even they could not reach. Made a joke about it - called them "Spartavians". Until that day, when the monkeys founded the SAS, the Special Ape Service, and began to overrun the human centers of civilization. The humans had no chance against the highly gifted animals - and soon they found themselves in a Stone Age created by the primates. All in the name of nature. But Evi was not willing to give all the power to the very hairy attackers. "Come out, come out, wherever you are! What is it? Have you lost your voice?," the Spartavian asked. She looked at the lantern in her hand. The light was dim, it's flame almost extinguished. It had used up most of its fuel over the long time of her mission. She sighed, then took a deep breath and turned the handle - which actually was an ignition mechanism. It clicked into place. A crunchy sound appeared. Suddenly, the light flickered as if it had just been supplied with new life energy. Evi counted quietly to three, rose up a little and threw the lantern as high as she could over the wall. With an almost inaudible noise the explosive disappeared from her field of vision. Nerve-shattering heartbeats later the clapping sound of two hands catching an object sounded. "But ... that's a lantern! I always wanted to have one like that"; the monkey remarked enthusiastically. "Wonderful! It will make a great addition to my front doo ..." A hollow bang cut off his last words. Slowly the warrior woman rose from her hiding place, wiping her mouth and nose. She breathed theatrically before addressing the just blown-up enemy. "Yippieyayeh! ape-face," she spat towards the quickly evaporating cloud of smoke. "Evi!" With a weak plop, similar to the distant bursting of a synapse, Evi returned to reality and looked up. The baboon on the other side of the fence stared at her with a mentally deranged look, then shrugged his shoulders and turned away. "Evi! I don't like it when you play around in front of the monkey house," Mama said sternly. "What will the neighbours think of use, when they see you talking to baboons?" "Child, you have too much imagination," Grandma said laughing before turning to Mama. "Maybe she should watch less television?" "I'll suggest it to Harold," Mama nodded and took her daughter away from the monkey cage. "But now we're going to the saltwater aquarium." "Saltwater? Are there any sharks?" the girl asked hopefully. "Sharks?" Mama laughed. "No. But little whales." The girl's eyes widened. "Whales?" she asked in disbelief. A small puddle in front of them started to move. At first the water only seemed to vibrate, rippled and splashed quietly, then it exploded into a fountain. A huge humpback whale emerged from the seething floods and crashed onto the floor slabs of the path. The huge monster crawled towards them on its pectoral fins, the remains of an arm hanging out between bloody, shredded baleen plates. "Hello Evi," the scarred monster greeted her with a sinister pirate voice. "I have learned how to eat meat." The warrioress Evi pulled her knife out of the sheath. A light smile crept on her lips, waited there for a moment and vanished, making room for an answer that you could only expect from any good warrior. "And I know how to fillet fish." ->Linked because of nipples!<-

  4. Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis. must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors... 15, ah what could that mean? I'll look later. Let's roll another. seven! Good. Nicely spaced numbers. Will look it up in a minute. For the third roll... Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different... Finally! oof! One! Critical miss. Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table. Let's see what this means: 15: mint green 7: olive green 1: fire red huh. Whadaya know. Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
  5. ...and finishing it in 10 days or less. And you're all invited to come along for the ride. Audience participation is welcome and encouraged, just don't throw anything, please. (Unless it's money) While on the hangouts last night, I had an idea for a new project, and then started to laugh. When asked what was so funny, I said that I had just thought of a cool idea for a vignette for Reapercon, but it was too bad it's only a little over a week away. Some of the helpful folks there encouraged me to 'go for it'. I laughed. But I started thinking about it. Then I really started to think about it; I got out some stuff, and made a crude mock-up sketch. Then I thought about it some more. ....and now I think I'm going to do it. It's not like all of my other projects are already finished, right? Oh wait.... So, when I hobby, I usually have a couple different things going at one time, so that I can work on something else while i'm waiting for paint/glue/putty/whatever to dry. I was converting this fellow: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones/latest/77408 when the idea hit me. So, what I'm thinking is a scene where the evil spell caster is summoning up some unholy thing from the pit for some evil shenanigans. Mock up: The big scary monster is not what I'm going to use; it's just a place holder. The summoning portal will be in the ground. What I'm thinking for the monster is that less is more; just an arm and top of the head, or some tentacles or something just starting to rise up out of the portal. What do you think? Also, here's the guy I converted: Since he was the chap that inspired this idea, I was going to use him as the star, (and I still might), but I was wondering if the calm pose works alright ( I imagine all the chanting, bloodletting and so on has concluded and he's just waiting for his minion to come forth ), or if a more action-y pose (arms spread, holding a staff/sword/something over the head, something like that) would be better. Well, what do you think?
  6. Laaaaaadies and Geeeeeeeeeentlemen!!! Welcome to the Epic 7-day Challenge Khanjira battle: OneBoot vs. Buglips! OneBoot issued the Challenge! Buglips accepted! They will be following the standard rules! (Rules reposted here for clarity) 1. You may use no brushes larger than Size 0. As Size 0 can vary by company and brand, the average bristle dimensions are 10mm long by 1mm wide. When selecting brushes, try to be as close to this guideline as possible. 2. You have 7 full days to complete from your posted start time (including a picture with a time stamp from a phone or computer screen is helpful to establish this) to complete the model. 3. All visible areas must be painted, and all paint must be applied with a regulation brush. 4. No drilling, filing, mold line removal or other prepwork is permitted before start time. The only preparation allowed is to dry fit your pieces to make sure the model is complete, and do any boiling and reshaping necessary to correct warpage and return the model to "factory spec". You may also clean the pieces with soap and water. 5. All pieces as included in the box set at retail must be painted. This includes, for example, the 5 adventurer figures included with Dragons Don't Share 2. The official start time for this competition is 4:00 PM Pacific time on Wednesday the 27th Alrighty, let's get ready to RUUUUUUUUMBLLLLLLLE!! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. So, as you may have heard, I have been bitten by the Frostgrave bug. Like several others here. I don't want to keep thread-jacking the topics that others have already started so I'm starting my own. And there is nothing that you can do about it! (Except ignore it. Please don't ignore it. My fragile self esteem would just totally fall apart and I would be forced to return to.........where was I) Yes terrain. I used to make terrain back when I played Mordheim but all of that has been lost to time and space (and Navy movers). So I'm building most things from scratch. I will include finished works as well as WIP. If there is interest I can break out specific projects into a separate WIP thread. So to start off: My first 10 painted minis of the New year: A Target Games resin Graveyard set. Now that Iook at it, I missed painting the earth on one of the graves. And some moss (lichen I guess for the cold lands) Next up is my pool/well. This is actually an ash tray that Awesome Wife and I picked up from an open air market in London on our honeymoon in '98. We don't smoke but it looked cool. Next up is a WIP of a ruined two story house. I think the next ones I make will not be as wide. Materials are foamcore board ($1) and craft (popsicle sticks, also $1). I've got plenty of both left. Front: And back: Future plans will include a storage box tower and some sort of stepped platform built out of insulation board. FYI the foamboard cuts were done with a hot knife. Very handy and relatively cheap. Mine was $15 at AC Moore but after coupons and discounts it ended up being 7 bucks.

    Dragons Don't Share 2 In Seven Days!

    Ladies and Gentlemonsters! The time is nigh! Repent thy... wait, no, that's next week. This week it's time for Buglips is Crazy Part III - Dragons Don't Share 2 in SEVEN DAYS! So far I'm 50/50. I have Kaladrax in Seven Days (completed): http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/ And Cthulhu in TWO days because I got cocky, and he kicked my butt: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52091-cthulhu-in-twothulhu-buglips-is-phnwagh-fhtramw-2/ This challenge is sponsored by ReaperBryan, who picked the model, and the number of days I have. Should I die in this attempt, pass this along to my clan so they may seek to avenge me. The rules are: 1. I can use nothing bigger than a size 0 brush (no airbrushes, big brushes, nothing) 2. I have 7 full days to complete the model to an attractive level of quality (i.e., it's gotta look decent as well as be done quick) So when does this challenge start? IT ALREADY HAS! I just type super slow. It started at 11:30 am local - which 9:00 am Reaper time... And the state of the model: And I'll be back in a bit with some progress pictures.
