"Get off my lawn!"

All while shaking your cane right?

 

But in deference to the season, is it a Candy Cane?

 

 

I switch between Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  I don't care what gets said to me.  I take it in the spirit in which it is intended.  That matters more to me than the actual words.

Dutch here:

 

Christians:  Zalig Kerstfeest en een gelukkig nieuwjaar. ( zalig is more like heavenly X-mas, and a happy newyear)

 

Non Christians: Fijne kerstdagen en een gelukkig nieuwjaar. ( Merry X-mas and a happy newyear)

 

Sometimes: Fijne feestdagen ( Happy Holidays)

I find it interesting just how much of Dutch almost seems like someone trying to speak English without having full control over their tongue so it keeps wandering all over the place in their mouth... And I'm sure the same is true in reverse, only English speakers also probably sound like drunks who can't figure out exactly which language it is they're mangling. :lol:

You are quoting every one of my Second Language Learning students when I mangle Spanish.  

 

My favorite was one of my students, in heavily accented and broken English. "Mr. Shetler.  You Spanish no speak it very good."

So I told her.  You help my Spanish get better, and I will help you read and write English better.

Her English has dramatically improved.  My Spanish still sucks.  But I guess that's why I'm the teacher :lol:

      The necrosis carnex is an undead creature from 3.5e located in monster manual 4. It’s similar to a flesh golem, being an amalgamation of several corpses with multiple limbs held together with cold iron bands. They also have the ability to unleash negative energy in order to heal undead allies and damage living creatures at the same time. I was also interested in this monster since it can be created by player characters, giving necromancers in an evil campaign new possibilities. The problem was that I’ve searched the internet all over and could not find a good miniature for it, so I decided to create my own instead.
       
      I started with some zombie miniatures, particularly miniatures 77342 and 77053. From here I cut up the body parts I needed. Doing this only used three of the 8 miniatures that came in the pack; however I was careful to avoid using pieces that had clothes covering the limbs or torso and tried to create the mini as accurate to the picture in the monster manual as I could. It is said that no two necrosis carnexes look the same so in theory one could make others using the pieces left over, in which case I think I could have made about 3 minis total from the two zombie packs.
       
      After this I glued all the limbs onto the torso as best as I could match the original image. I had to cut and re-glue several limbs to get the angles right so the mini would stand properly (I tried heating, shaping, and cooling first but found the limbs went to their original position too easily). I also attached some pieces of wire in order to create the ribcage on the front as well as some of the smaller limbs/attachments. After this I went to work with greenstuff. I filled in the gaps from where limbs were attached and smoothed out the flesh. I also created several strips that I laid over the top of the mini to create the iron bands that hold it together. Last I placed a few tiny rhinestones I had on the largest band to create giant rivets binding the metal to flesh. After this all that was left was to prime and paint the miniature.
       
      There are a few things that I would have done differently if I were to build this miniature again. First and foremost I would have cleaned all the flash off of the miniatures before doing any cutting. Trying to remove it from tiny hand and leg pieces was incredibly difficulty so having clean models to start would have saved a lot of time. Second, I would have added the greenstuff in two phases, letting all of the joint filler and body sculpt cure before adding the cold iron bands since this would have prevented the two parts from fusing and left more of a distinct seam between the two.

      Hasslefree specializes in characterful badasses, and I thought it good to paint a few of them up like my merc Frank Russo. Meet the Major, Ekaterina, Rowen, Alex, and Tank, along with their previously posted colleagues:
       
       
       
      In several cases they have been modified or accessorized.  My FLGS had some leftover GW Bitz they were kind enough to let me plunder, and between that, a GW scout walker's leftover bitz, and Bombshell tool sprues there were plenty of canisters and accessories to go around. 
       
      Here is the Major. (Hasslefree designation Major Hoare.) I added the gas tanks and the hose to his weapon. One canister is pyrophoric, the other, an extinguisher. The Major is acutely aware of which is connected at all times. I assume the cigar is a futuristic electronic device, for that would be most unsafe otherwise. 
       

       

       
       
       
      Ekaterina appears to be one of Hasslefree's analogues to Black Widow. I added some canisters and a Bombshell machete. 
       

       

       
       
       
      Rowen here really sold me on this project. Love that dynamic and confident stroll, and the flippy hairstyle. They are very secure in who they are, even more so with a portable GW missile strapped to their back.
       

       

       
       
      Alex has access to guns and grenades but prefers sharp blades. [This mini, unlike his colleagues, comes in like six pieces; pin and glue accordingly.]

       

       

       
      And of course there is Tank. Tank is not Hasslefree, but rather a leftover GW scout walker pilot. I've posted in the past about diversity in minis, and resolved to follow through on that by giving him a souped-up wheelchair/personal mobility device with some extra bells and whistles. Tank sees your wheelchair-inaccessible stairs and is prepared to turn them into an accessible ramp of smoking rubble. GW parts plus parts from a toy car I found under a refrigerator.
       
       
       

       
       
       
      And lastly, a repaint of Bombshell's Maelee, to get her in line with the Task Force dress code. Also added a couple pouches and canisters. 
       

       

       
      Together they make a formidable team, good for spacefuture or cyberpunk settings. What sorts of mayhem mightn't they get up to...for the right price, of course?
