Here's something exciting and new, paint!

 

post-8239-0-59382100-1418607412_thumb.jpg

 

Figured I'd start putting down a black "basecoat" on the stones while waiting for other stuff to dry.

Since I can't spray prime it (and I don't want to use up ALL my brush on primer) I'm basing all the stonework in black craft paint.  The way the plaster is sucking up the paint I'm not sure the 4 oz bottle will be enough!

 

That's enough for tonight.

LOL, nice Jay!

 

Did some actual miniatures painting today, at lunch.

After another round of base coat touchups and evening out the colours of the base, I tried a wash on the wing.  I think it works, but I'd like some second opinions.

 

I also put a base coat on the head, not that there is much to see....

Tomorrow I'm out for a work lunch holiday thing, so no painting.  I'm tempted to bring lavarath home and work on getting the other wing and the tail attached before going any further.  Thoughts?

i will bring you a box on monday (I have two)

 

 

And yes the Hobby shop on spring garden carries it.

Sweet!

 

Yes, I knew they carry it (that's where I got mine) but with my luck they'd be all out....

 

Are you guys in Hali and are you talking about the hobby store on the corner that shares the building with record store near campus?

We're up in New Glasgow.  But yep, that's the store!

Didn't get much done today.  Well, I got lots done, just not much was painting related.  Got almost all my Christmas shopping done though.

 

Still managed to get a bit done. More base coating of the wall.

Did I ever mention that I made it so the tower comes off?  Necessary for painting, and gives a slightly better storage.travel option, should they be necessary.

And this is with one coat on all the bricks.  I'll need to do a second pass to get all the cracks and bits that I missed on the first run.

 

I brought the dragon home to put the tail on and the other wing, but was too tired to try it tonight. So instead I got Lavarath's victim ready to paint tomorrow.

Got a good start on our Gnome casualty today.

Base coat and wash done.  Need to remember to take in a red wash/ink tomorrow for her hair.  Then some highlighting.

 

The evening was spent driving to my parents, loading half a cow into the car, driving back and filling the freezer (but not before putting 3 lovely looking steaks in the fridge for tomorrow later today....didn't realize it was quite so late.....

Painted at lunch.

I'm calling her done.  A quick job, but she's more of an accessory than the main focus.

But realize, this is the FIRST figure I've completed for this diorama.... :blink:

 

 

Then I did a little work on Kyra.

I think she's ready for her hand so I've brought her home.

 

I'm pretty tired (3 hours sleep last night) but I'm going to try to get a bit done tonight.

      Some may have seen it in the Facebook Group already, but I am working currently on a spelunking diorama that is a study in OSL. My first serious attempt at OSL it turned out to be a daunting and mindbending affair. I established the base colours and lighting via airbrush and then went back in with brush. Still a few things to fix, but it is getting there.

      part one was opened in mid December, part 2 on Christmas morning. 
      I’ll build into a full diorama in January 
      Which I will then hide until next year

      This was from a couple months ago; I was pretty unsure what I wanted to do with it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, particularly given that I think I only had three different colors of blue paint in bottles, and two of them were pretty similar.

      Watch out this time of year for this fellow, he'll come riding in with the blizzards!

      Catching a bit of a 1970's version of A Christmas Carol while channel hopping today reminded me that I still had these gals to paint:-
       

       
      I was planning on extending Presents base with putty but mine had dried up (Plus I'm not sure I would've had much success reproducing that wooden plank look anyways), so she's going to look a little weird (Although she already looks a little weird in her pirate cosplay).
      Just waiting on them to dry, and then, hopefully, I can start painting them tomorrow.
       
      Won't get them finished by Christmas, I'll probably still be working on them well into January, but I should be able to finish them eventually.

      and the last of this month's work, pretty sure can't see another one out of me with only half a day left. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....
