So it turns out that coffee pods not only contain coffee grounds, which I'm accumulating for ground-cover on a piece, they ALSO contain (well, this brand does) two perfectly round, rigid plastic mesh screens per pod.

 

Just in case any of you crazy scratch-builders needed to know.

Well, that'll definitely get my attention next time I'm staying in a motel with coffee pods...

Yeah. Given a selection of beverages this morning at JFK, what did I get? What, you ask?

 

A Tropicana bottle. For the C-A-P.

 

Thank you guys...

Ya know those new-fangled coffee machines? They take a little pre-measured plastic capsule of coffee grind, ensuring consistent results (also makes sure you don't get old coffee smear building up and wrecking the flavour). They're a bit similar, in looks, to those individual heat-sealed milk servings you sometimes get in motel fridges.

 

However they are a sealed unit without the peel-off foil top; you put the whole thing in the coffee maker, then when you close the port a steel probe pierces the "pod" and injects hot water, and coffee comes out the spout.

Yeah, K-cups (for a certain type of machine); you also get those cups (smaller ones) in Nespresso machines. In Europe, those K-cups are mostly done by Nestle (Senseo I think?) and the brand I actually use, Dulce-Gusto.

 

I will have to gutter some of those pods... we go throw them pretty quickly anyway.

It depends on what you mean by "coffee pod" really. The k-cups are comparatively new. I'm not fond of them because I don't like all that waste every time I want a cup of coffee, but there's been another sort of pod available in Europe for many many years. It's basically an espresso machine, which uses small paper pods (they look a lot like slightly smaller, denser Tetley tea bags) instead of the usual scoop system. They're great, efficient, and all of the waste is biodegradable. I'm not entirely clear on which of these SR is referring to tbh.

Love the Tropicana caps. Planning on using them for Menoth Warjack bases.

      Just pulled these out of the drawer.  One of these Orcs was next in line on the Bones I Kickstarter Rewards image, so I’ll try to squad-paint them together to save time. They have been cleaned of mold lines.  The spearman’s spear was very bent, as was the great sword.  So, those got weapon swapped with basic weapons from Bones 3.  Those are darker grey.  Washed them, so just waiting for them to dry.  Also had to gap fill spearman’s wrists.

      I’ve been working on this dragon too.
      It has some serious lean.  In order to try to address this, I cut the front feet away from the back feet, and from each other.  I was hoping gluing the to the base separately would do it, but no!

      Still serious lean.
      I decided to pin the feet to the base, but as I played with it, realized the back feet, left and right front feet would all have to be at different levels.  
       

      It’s now straight and erect.  I had to chop and reposition the tail for this, or else the tip dipped below the level of the base.  Now I need to sculpt green stuff supports around these pins.  Then I’ll try to turn them in to rocks.

      Starting up another, now that Janan is done.
      Satheras, Male Warlock.  He had a really bent staff.  On the behind shot you can see I cut it off at the hand, wedged a bit out and re glued it into a straighter angle.  I also cut him off his integral base, since it had no texture.
       



      Hoping to try to get a little better at OSL on him, with a green gem in the staff.

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
       
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
       
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Brought some painting models for vacation.  Finished the Hell Hound last night, didn’t WIP it.
       
      Had Yephima on my shelf of shame for a long time.  If it ends up 1/100 as good as the studio version I’ll be happy.  Plan on light blue skin and silvery hair, like the Bestiaries suggest.  Other than that, not sure...

       
      Here she is primed with Brown Liner.  That’s gonna take some work to get the skin tones brighter.
