  1. So it's been an adventure! But I finished this guy today. I don't think I can do anymore damage to him :P You can check out my WIP thread, but here are some (ok, a LOT) of pics of him from just about every conceivable angle. He's got a lot more iridescent than shows up on the pictures :( not sure how to get that to show up. His base is Reaper Ruins vignette 74027. I pinned him in three places to get him to stick to the base, as I was really worried about him falling over.
  2. Not a lot done yet, it's likely to be slow going. I'm trying to think of a colour scheme I want to use for it. I suspect purple will be involved. I just finished finally putting him together, and removing mold lines. The epoxy is still curing atm. One of his... antennae? I think I may have put in a bit off, but it was quite hard to tell how those were meant to go unfortunately. I'm currently working on gap filling, which I suspect will take me quite a long time as I've not done it a whole ton before and this is the largest model in metal I've ever attempted so cross your fingers!
  3. Herein I'll take up the challenge of the infamous Jabberwock from Bones 1. I already attached the wings and sculpted their joints with Magic Sculpt. This piece is well known for its tendency to sag under its own weight. Others have come up with various solutions. I intend to burrow along the length of the left leg, as indicated with the green stripe, and embed a bent jumbo paperclip for reenforcement. Then I'll have to re-sculpt the removed surface, but after doing the wing joints that doesn't seem exceedingly difficult.
  4. While painting has been a little constrained, it's been a good month for gaming. I attended two conventions, running demo games of Chaos Wars for Iron Wind Metals. At Cincycon the first weekend in March, we had access to the company collection of figures, so I didn't need to worry about what to put on the table, but at Cold Wars I was running games (with the aid of my brother) out of my own collection. My collection runs to vintage rather than current production, and I thought it would be nice if I could work toward getting some stuff on the table that is still in the catalog, although vint
  5. 03692 Halloween Tree by Jason Wiebe 03233 Townsfolk Children Little Boy by Bobby Jackson 01-095 Jabberwock from IronWind Metals "Jabberwocky" is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll and included in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, a sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took
  6. I was taking a stroll through the woods one day, and came upon a beast from the ancient days of BONES I, the Jabberwock! This guy had been mostly finished for a long time, but wouldn't stay upright. I couldn't get a rod through his legs, so I wound up gluing the heck out of his tail to get it to stay to the base.
  7. Hey all, here's what I'm currently working on. I got a shipment of some more Bones in on Friday before I had to leave town, got back last night and have been painting a bit today. I finally got around to getting some green stuff for filling seams, and I'm trying it out on my Jabberwock. I'm also going to try out base coating in a few different colors rather than hitting the whole mini with a coat of plain black first. I painted Feiya plain black everywhere there wasn't exposed skin or hair. I'll be base coating those later, probably in dirty bone since that's about the only off-white color I c
  8. As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. One of my all time favorite poems is by Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland: Jabberwocky From "Through the Looking Glass" (1871) ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. “Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Bewa
  9. Let my start off by saying that most of the Bones miniatures are fine. The problem seems to be with large miniatures that have narrow/thin supporting legs or what have you. The Bones with the biggest problem seems to be Jabberwock and one of the dragons (I think the Red Dragon). Both have sagged to the point where their front legs now touch the ground. Does anyone have a suggestion on how this can be addressed? I love these two miniatures but I’m not sure what I can do with them to fix the problem. Thanks, ~ S ~
  10. Sooo.... I'm sitting here, out on the West Coast of Canada, impatiently waiting for my KS Bones to finally get here, and browsing these forums looking for ways to amuse myself. Having found the "Show Off" forum and been impressed by many of the paint jobs here I was reminded that, quite some time ago (2005 to be exact) I'd took some time to actually assemble and paint a couple of Ral Partha lead miniatures that I'd had kicking about since the mid-to-late-90's and that I'd subsequently uploaded images of the final results to a "Microsoft Live Spaces" blog I maintained at the time. Now, I do
