2nd attempt at creating a steam-punk elephant-women mad-scientist, representing a PC in a game I am running. Since such a model does not exist I made one. It consists of the following parts: The base model I had printed through HeroForge I pinched the cables and coils from a warmachines model I found on ebay. Finished it off with some lightning I had laying around from the previous attempt (I think it was creating action figure dioramas, but I have thrown out the packaging long ago). Nothing on the model is Reaper, but I painted it with Reaper Paints. I had a lot of fun trying out all kinds of configurations with poster tack until settling on this combination for the rigging. The only thing it is missing is her faction symbol on the shield, but I wasn't sure how to make a stencil small enough. If any has any technique for adding coat of arms to a models, outside of trying to free hand it, I would to hear it. Here are a few pictures. The other model is for scale, and is just what I had handy.
This is the third of a series of five dragons I painted in the last two months. (Well, technically one of them isn't a dragon.) It's the Shadow Dragon, one of the two smaller (only about elephant size) dragons from the first Bones Kickstarter set, "Here Be Dragons," sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I painted it up not quite knowing where I was going, starting with aquatic thoughts, adding stripes, and then going over the cliff into total madness. WIP thread here.
Yep. Another Kingdom Death mini from me (can't get enough of the stuff at the moment), this time it's the fearsome Storm Knight:- Didn't get too far today though:- I've only managed to basecoat the steel and metallic blue parts in Nightmare Black. I think this is going to be an even harder project than I thought.
A tiny sliver of NASA's budget supports a wee little webpage called The Astronomy Picture Of the Day. As with all things NASA an acronym results: APOD. If you missed the eclipse, they did not: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140416.html But do click on the link for the caption, explanation, and further links --- for the sake of SCIENCE. Moving on to April 17th: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140417.html This took a day or two for someone to composite. But, again, do click on the link for the caption, explanation, and further links --- for the sake of SCIENCE. Also look for the very subtle " > " link on each APOD page, which will take you to the next day. April 16 to 20 have just been particularly cool. (Your tax dollars zapping the moon with a laser, how cool is that?) Here is the April 20 image hidden with spoiler tagging: ...but again I recommend checking out the original. (BTW, The original image often will link to a high-res version.)
