Excellent reports fellow field reporters.  Keep your eyes out for more acquisitions to report on.

 

 

I managed to pick up 2 of the 3 new Star trek attack wing ships last night. Could have gotten all 3 but I am missing 3 of the previous release so i bought one of them.

 

They aren't supposed to be released until June 11th...

 

That said, the store I play Attack Wing Organised Play tourny's at is a little behind so I now have a ship that will overpower the scenario we are supposed to play. It should be interesting.

 

They had several at our game store though I am unfamiliar with the game.  Wish it were closer or I'd check for you.

 

 

 

No worries, My next OP is Saturday and entry fee is 1 ship so I will have caught up to the collection this weekend.

 

Also, One of the 3 I bought is the Borg Tactical Cube which has been shown to have a preorder price of $24.99

 

 

I paid $14.99...

 

 

Resistance was futile.

So I travelled to my FLGS in NYC today, hoping to gate last months and this months mini of the month, and saw neither....   So I grabbed some GW paints I needed refills of, and after checking

I couldn't resist. Sale rack + employee discount. Mmm bright colors

So, today started off with a surprise email from Ben Komets saying that I won his Patreon raffle for March! I am still in freak out mode.

Welcome, Mr. Hawkins, to the Department.  Your report needs some more details and perhaps pictures and links, but excellent work.  Is that crayon in the corner there?

 

I just got in my most recent order from Reaper. A giant, 3 Chronoscope females, and 2 paint triads. They included a sample bottle of dark green that is a shade darker than the darkest of one of the triads that I got, so I am very happy with it. I also purchased two Ral Partha minis off ebay. A cleric and theif, both female.

 

Oooo!  A dark green eh?  Nice.

 

Which Reaper giant did you get?

 

It is actually Ms Hawkins reporting and here is more detail as requested.

 

The giant is Boerogg Blackrime, Frost Giant Jarl and I got Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and Snow Shadow to use as his skin tone. He is going to be my entry in the Fantasy Large Competion at Gateway in September.

 

The three Cronoscope miniatures are Rosie, Sascha, and Sarah. Rosie is for the Beauty Pageant and Sarah is for Be a Spaceship Superstar!

 

The second paint triad is the moss one. Jungle Moss, Highland Moss, and Pale Lichen.

I almost bought both those triads last Reaper order.  I paused as I was already well over $50.

Hmm, I should have some Reaper Bones inbound as I type this. Last minis purchase before that was 4 packs of Essex 15mm Gauls, and before that was a pack of Cops and Villains from Pulp Figures. Cash has been an issue lately, so keeping my purchases small...

 

Edit: figures came today!

I remember seeing him in that WIP of yours. I hope I can remember about it when I start on him in a month or so.

My flgs has an old old old reaper angels box (2) that he's had for years that I'm waiting to go on clearance, he still has some p-65s too. I swear he refuses to put them on clearance because he knows I'm waiting.

 My latest grabs were from a half-price bin at the local comic shop... A Warhammer "Supreme Sorceress on Cold One", and a "Tiger Master" from the Mega Miniatures She Warrior line that's obviously from a pretty old mold since both woman and tiger are noticeably flattened... The woman's pretty much a loss since she's only about half as wide front-to-back as she should be, but the tiger's not too terribly bad, even though it does sort of look like a frog wearing a tiger costume, lol...

My latest purchases have all been internet-based.

 

A 120mm "urban streets" base, and a pack of 5 40mm "cobblestone" bases from Secret Weapon.

A trollkin, and some weapon bits from Privateer Press.

A Scurvy Dog (undead werewolf), VanHelsing, The Fox, and the graveyard vignette base from Reaper.

Boris Barayev (Five Suns Smuggler), Caine (Cyber Troll), Invisible Man, John Bishop (Space Marshal) and a motorcycle, also from Reaper.

 

I have some ideas for some vignettes. One just 'cause, and one for the Spaceship Superstar contest.

      Couldn't find a better thread to post this in.  Has anyone else ever had mold grow on their minis?
       
      I have a set of bones that have been sitting around for about two year. They were super glued to a reaper base. Baking soda and super glue were used to blend the integrated base into the round base. There's also a layer of cheap craft paint as primer.
       
      These guys have been sitting on my painting table in a former sun-room for about two years. 
       
      I noticed the bases had yellowed a bit, which I've begun to notice on some of my other older bases using baking soda as a basing material. But when I checked on them I noticed small fuzzy looking orange tufts. 
       
      I can only assume this is mold.
       
      The only things I could think of to cause this are the baking soda or the water used to clean my brush before priming. 
       
      Has anyone else seen this?

      Hello again!  I'm back with an assortment of Bones that are serving as my Rangers of Shadow Deep solo party.  Decided I wanted a classic fantasy look, but didn't want to fall into the cliched green cloak look.  With that stipulation, I settled on a more autumnal color palette, and tried to keep this aesthetic across the entire party, without anyone looking like they were wearing matching uniforms.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and I tried to push myself with each mini.  What do you think?

       
      More Photos and Thoughts Beneath the Spoiler:
       
      I have only played a few scenarios of Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I'm honestly not sold on the whole solo-game thing.  But if the game has done anything for me, it has given me motivation to paint more and has given purpose to some of the things I already have painted.  I already ordered some extra gnolls and ghouls to meet the required numbers and will likely be showing off some monsters soon.
       
      Which character do you like best?
       
      What games have motivated you to paint those piles of shame?

      This is the Hill Giant from 77939. I have not finished the cat yet, so I only have the Giant here. I have been trying to add various colors (layers of color for one area/color) to my minis to make them more interesting. Following some of the painters here and other utubers and painters like Angel G. I used an Imperial Purple base for this entire mini and then did Troll Flesh as next base for skin and then built up reddish skin tones for skin and then went lighter tan. Hope you enjoy, I had fun painting him.

      Hello Forum friends, I'm being quite productive lately  Gonna show you the most recent mini I painted: Small world Sophie.
      Ok, I have to say I'm in love with this chibi minis, I'm gonna buy lot more cause I find them so funny to paint!
      About the paint job, well, anytime I manage to paint Sophie, my color choice for her wings is always Violet (or purple if you prefer) and so why do not make my life easy and go for a complementary palette? So, purple and yellow. Easy peasy...
      Anyway, this is the result, I'm quite happy of her, I hope you'll like her too.
      As always every C&C is more than welcome :)

      Worked on some critters. The leeches were painted Walnut Brown and highlighted in medium grey. Then I went over them with Turbo Dork - 3D Glasses. Then wash of Nuln Oil Glossy. Ended up with the slimy/glossy look I was trying for.
       

       

       
       

      Dire Crab, I was inspired by the color scheme that many have posted here, which i think they were modeling a Blue Crab which seems to be more green with many interesting colors in it. I painted the whole thing Ivory, and then glazed inks and washes up and tried to be careful on where I laid the wash/ink down. Some were just one coat, like Reikland Fleshshade for the edges of shell and claws. Also uded Army Painter green ink and Nuln Oil (for mix with green for darkest part on top of shell) for shell/legs/claws, Reaper Sepia wash for in-between colors and the underside. Only paint I used was bit of black at tips of claws, and Tropical blue watered down to thickish wash for blue on claws/legs.
