  1. KISSING BOOTH...This is my 6th open air booth in my Renaissance Fair project. DATA...This is a small kissing booth...scratch built on ceiling tile...size (2" x 2")...again shown from concept drawing to complete finish...the Reaper figure (although it exactly fits the piece) is just to show the scale of the finished piece. Hope you like and enjoy this simple but cute little piece. Paul (Catdancer)

NEAR COMPLETE...The piece is complete except for the final pour of liquid water on the pond...I do water pours only when I have 4 to 5 pieces that need it; so that I can do all of them at the sam
  7. HISTORY...Last year, I started work on a series of Renaissance Fair open air booths for fantasy table top game play.

I have now returned to the project with renewed enthusiasm and here is the first completed piece...from idea conception to full detailed completion. PIECE...Beer & Sausage Booth...completely scratch built on ceiling tile base...size (6" x 4"). Hope you like it. Paul (Catdancer)

Again...I hope that you like this simple little piece. Paul (Catdancer) NOTE...The finished piece did not lend itself to usage of the banner...so I left it off!

  10. With the approach of football season...my work on both the medieval renaissance fair & Gypsy traveling band has come to a close (for the time being). It is time to turn my attention back to painting some miniature figures. The older miniature painters & figure buffs/collectors will recall most of these classic figures from the (70's & 80's). These figures will be what I will be working on for the next couple of months. I hope you will enjoy (as I post updates on the progress of the painting of these selected pieces).
  11. I have just started work on (2) tabletop terrain game pieces...(1) Is a small jungle waterfall (8"x5")...(2) Is a small secluded nook (4"x4").

  15. FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)...Conversion (removed sword and added chain mace hand)... NOTES IN REGARD TO FIGURE...I executed my figure in my standard way (as other black orcs I have posted on this forum), but made the following changes/alterations as suggested by a couple of Reaper members. 1. I placed this orc on a darker base setting which is less pristine (Ying-Yang) and more as part of a flowing/belonging into the scene. 2. I dulled down the flesh skin tone and flesh coarseness on the creature. 3. I dulled down the shiny aspect of the weapons and added a slight ru

  21. I've had a wonderfully productive basing/painting weekend. Tonight I got a start on my DHL Classics skellies, which will be used in an upcoming D&D adventure. I'd wanted to wait for more tips from Buglip's dry/wetbrushing how-to thread, but ultimately, I was just too excited to get started, and I think I know all that I need in order to get a start on my own. Drybrushing generally freaks me out. It's messy, and often used for putting finishing highlights on a mini. With my heavy hand, I'm likely to get paint all over the place using this technique for highlights, and so I've refrai
  22. FIGURE...REAPER #03303 (Amazon with spear) COLLECTION...Amazon # 8...in my private amazon army collection Hope you like it...
  23. I grew tired waiting for news of my kickstarter shipment, so I went a bought some Bones from a third party to practice on. I don't have many colours to choose from (since my Reaper paints haven't arrived) and most of what I do have is cheap artist's acrylic, so I decided to start with a fairly simple figure. I present Barnabas, the rusty warrior: Just by looking at the photos I'm seeing details I missed or screwed up, but I need broader feedback than just "You suck, give up now!". Please, critique away!
  24. This falls under the "How come I didn't know about his until now" heading. I was listening to the latest Game Classy podcast and found out we have fantasy and gaming based bar here in Vancouver B.C. called The Storm Crow Tavern. I had no idea. http://www.stormcrowtavern.com/ Probably wont be able to check it out until after the holidays, but it does sound interesting. For example their "Roll a Shot" menu. Just curious how many other cities have bars like this.
