three objective markers (2, 2, 3) and a question mark insert

100mm long and 25mm tall wall with runes and skulls

a stamp or mold thing? (it has a crater, some brickwork, a sewer grate with pipe, some gems and some armor)

a 25mm x 25mm prop I am having a hard time coming up with words describing - it looks like it belongs on a pillar or roof and has rings on it

I don't understand retailers... mind there aren't that many hobby stores I go into physically... I've had some bad experiences....

I'm sorry.

 

Forgive my asking, but might those experiences be related to the weird-reaction-to-the-female-gender thing?

 

 

 

That and partially some of the shops I've entered smell so bad that I wonder if they've ever been aired out......

Forgot to post here much sooner, but my latest big aquisitions include the title of AuntieBoot with the birth of my niece the day after Christmas, and my parent's old minivan, which gives me a vehicle while Mr. Boot is at work. :bday:

 

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

Congratulations!!

 

I really like that Spartan Warrior... *starts to try to pitter patter and it's actually STOMPY STOMPITY*

Methinks you need more practice.

 

 

Got my bag o crap today. Haven't opened it yet....

I picked up my daughter from Buffalo last Saturday and stopped by the recently relocated FLGS and picked up ... no miniatures.  :blink:

No minis and no name drop...  :down:

If you guys are getting your BoC's, hopefully I will get mine tomorrow. But I did have a package that came all the way from Germany. Since I finally had the funds to do so, I ordered one of PK-PRO's miniature holders. I cannot wait to use it.

A lady I used to game with once got into some trouble and had to do some community service.  Apparently cleaning the restroom at the local comic shop counted as "community service" so for a brief time they were safe to use.

Got my (somewhat lamentable, considering the Bones soon headed my way) Reaper order in.

 

14484: Irith, Deathseeker Hero (Leading candidate for my desert-barbarian spiked-chain conversion.)
02713: Ilmarin Duskwander (Candidate #3 for conversion; all but entirely out of the running.)
77042: Orc Marauder (Sword and Shield) (Never enough of Tre's orcs.)
77045: Orc Hunter (Spear) (Again, yeah.)
77004: Cave Troll (Don't know why I grabbed him; just thought he'd be fun, I guess.)
77001: Skeletal Spearmen (3) (Been needing some more skellies, and really need to learn the best way to paint them up in Bonesium. So grabbed these.)
14470: Ilmarin, Wood Elf Captain (Candidate #2 for my conversion. Love his face. A bit more armored than I'd like.)
77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant (Grabbed this little lady because my wife expressed interest in her. I'd like to have her painted up for Valentine's but, well, yeah.)

Speaking of the BoC's, does anyone know where Secret Weapon ships from?

 

Still waiting on mine and wondering how much longer to expect them.

Their shipping times may vary due to stock levels. The last time they had their BOC sale, I placed my order at the same time as others, it took almost 2 weeks to arrive. Aard was in the same boat.

 

--- edit ---

Tried to look for my receipt, but I cannot find it. And no mention of where they ship from from the online history order.

Mine came from Sacramento via USPS.

      I'm sure many of you can sympathise- we see a cool model in a kickstarter, finally get it delivered and then sit flummoxed whilst trying to figure out exactly how to paint said mini. This Mystic Portal has been sitting on my painting desk since last June and I finally figured out what to do with it.
       
      Imagine that your players have just finished ransacking your meticulously planned dungeon/keep/cavern system. They've breezed through the encounters, possibly due to good dice rolls or possibly that they're a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos. What you need is one final encounter, one last chance for them to shine or to let them spectacularly fail.
       
       There's one last room left and it's securely locked. It'll certainly be magically warded and if I know my players then that's a challenge that they won't be able to pass up. Inside the room is a single portal, made of nondescript stone but with stunning looking gems set into the eyes of it's carved dragons. Surely none of them would be daft enough to trigger an obviously dangerous portal?
       
      You haven't met my players
       
      My plan to paint one side of the portal the naturalistic stone colour and to paint the other side the fully active, just about to summon a multi headed dragon, portal. This means that when they invariably trigger it, all I have to do is spin it around and savour their worried/confused faces Here's hoping that I can actually do it justice.
       
      This is the portal. It's cast in translucent bonesium, which I like because it gives you a choice between taking advantage to it's see through quality or to just paint it like a normal mini. I opted to paint it as normal.
       

       
      There was a slight bit of warping on the base piece, but the old 'boiling/ice water' trick sorted it out in 5 minutes. I'm planning on setting the base on some warning runes, so I used the Greenstuff World Dwarven rolling pin on some foam to see how it would fit onto the pattern.
       

       
      On to the painting! I painted the inactive side of the portal Cloudy Grey 9089 and the active side Pure Black 9037.
       

       

       
      I'm not sure if I'm going to fuzz up this line or leave it as a stark contrast.
       

       
      I added a black/ green wash to dirty up the stone and added a little bit of orange to the stone to give it a little bit of texture
       

       
      The real work begins! I started blocking in the colours for the active side of the portal. Red, purplish black, white, green and blue. It's almost as if I'm trying to match my half finished Ma'al Drakar
       


       
      My coordination went a bit wobbly with the foo dogs(which are awesome, btw!) so that's where I left it for tonight. We've got a storm coming in tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get some more work done on it tomorrow. Any comments/criticism/suggestions are, as always, warmly received.

      I haven't been painting much Reaper lately, but painted up this beastie for Jimmy The Brush's July community challenge.
       
      Everything on the beast is TMM.

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      This was a fun sculpt - orange octopus definitely inspired by others :)

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.
