Hobby/Game Room - an ub3r WIP!

Recommended Posts

 

More incoming pics! Look up to the reserved space in a moment!

 

Wow this is looking really well good sir

Thanks! I'm very excited to get started once I get it all put away. I'm going to try to get most of my minis sorted tonight and slap labels on the bits bin stuff.

COOL! Once your done are you planning a video run through of the awesomeness? I would surely like to see how you organize everything. But I'm an organization nerd. ::P:

I could certainly do that.

Thanks everyone!

 

Nothing going on tonight except for painting. My wife's grandmother's birthday is today and I'm trying to finish the DSM frog prince and princess as a gift for her. She LOVES frogs for some reason. I'm nearly done, just a quick TT+ paint job for me, they'll look good, but I didn't have the time to spend on them that I'd have liked because it took so long to get my paint area back.

 

I need to get a few more things put away that are on the game table taking up space, I ordered a TV mount today that will arrive in a few days so my TV will go up and I'll finally be able to put away all the board games. Only a couple more purchases I'd like to make are a cabinet for next to the fridge for snacks, a countertop to lay them out on, and a small microwave that I can mount on the wall.

And a game cabinet for video games right ???

Then you would never get anything painted ... nevermind

Yeah I'll have my video games in there too, I go thru phases where I play them all the time and then won't play for months.

Looking through my stuff, I found my old PSP... with the battery case off and the lithium ion battery bulging. I quickly picked it up with a plastic baggie and put it outside away from the house until I can get somewhere to recycle it, I understand that when batteries do that they can explode or catch on fire, so I didn't want it anywhere near the new house and all my 20 precious miniatures! :blink:

Just added a new light to my paint area! In the center is my new Architect light. It's very nice and bright white light, I really like it. Can't have TOO much light in paint areas right??

Working on the left desk right now and just realized that the toaster oven I got for xmas has a VERY short cord to plug it in, trying to decide how I want to plug it in now, whether I should get an extension cord or use a power strip...

 

95% of the stuff is put away and organized now, I'll post more pics in a little bit... probably after dinner!

Get a surge protector. Especially with a toaster oven.

 

Good call, the cord on the power strip (which has surge protection) is rather long, so I can just set it up on top of the desk behind everything and it should be fine as long as I make sure the other cords aren't a rats nest mess.

      Since apparently I am incapable of working on a single project, here is another 3D print that is presently “under the brush”.  Seemed sadly appropriate for these days.  
       
      Here he is before the cure. 
       
      a little Vallejo black primer. 

       
      Picked out the beak with Vallejo Dark Fleshtone by brush. 

       
      Went back to the airbrush and hit all the black parts with Reaper Coal Black (seriously, is there another black?!). 
      The beak then got some Reaper Rich Leather mixed with increasing amounts of Model Air Sand, focusing the lighter sand colour on top. The straps for the mask were painted with Rich Leather as well. 
       

       
      The beak then got a drybrush of straight Vallejo model Air Sand, followed by a very light and selective dry brush with Warcolours White.  
       
      The black then got a heavy dry brush of Reaper Jungle Mist.  
       
      next up will be some washes with some details being picked out and some metallic around the goggle lenses. 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Working on the Stone Giant. I'm looking for any constructive criticism but especially of the highlighting on the flesh. Not sure if I am finished or if it needs more highlights on the flesh. Everything else just is base colors and has not been worked on other than that.  He came missing the the left hand and club.

      Needing a break from resin (and not knowing how I want to paint my latest print), I have turned back to more basic crafting with xps foam.  Leaning heavily on the teachings of Black Magic Craft on YouTube.  These were also good to pick at during the seemingly 10000 hours of teleconferences I was on last week. 
       
      3/4” by 2.5” forms were cut and deck screws added to one end to provide some weight.  I next marked out every 1/4”, then scored then with the knife and speed square.  The verticale cuts were eyeballed about 1/3 of the way in on alternating rows (I did half one way, the other reversed to add some variety). I then went over all the cuts with a pen to increase the indent and soften the inner edges.  

       
      I then cut out the end caps 1” square and textured everything, pillars included with rolled up tin foil.  

       
      Lastly, I used hot glue to assemble the pieces.  

       
      hope to get them primed tomorrow and then a quick paint job on Sunday.   Not that we’re playing D&D these days but I hope to have a few more pieces of terrain ready to go for when all this horrible stuff passes and we can resume our normal routines.  
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I base coated this guy (Otherworld Shadow 1 of 2) in Reaper Nightmare Black (a gorgeous blue-black) and drybrush highlighted with a 50/50 mix of Oceanic Blue and Pure White. 
       
      I think he looks done! Thoughts? Too heavy on the dry brush? I plan to use some Vallejo Ground Texture on the base. Happy to hear comments and criticism.

      So I’ve been burning through resin for the past few weeks.  Been focusing on busts as my collection of unpainted minis is... impressive.  I should be painting those, but...  Other than my airbrush exploding on me (paint bubbling up through the trigger), this guy hasn’t taken much time yet.  
       
      Got this from Fotis Mint on Patreon along with a bunch of other ones. 


      Printed with a mix of regular clear Elegoo resin mixed with clear red ABS-like Elegoo, about 70/30.  
       

      Primed with Vallejo black primer then base coated with Reaper Coal Black (my new favourite black!!) with a drop of Minitaire Green ghost tint to help enhance the green hue.  
       

      he then got a bib and I hit his face with Reaper Mist Green mixed with some white with a lighter (much more white than Most Green) highlight.  
       

      i then glossed up the face with some varnish. 
       

      His face then got some washes.  Old GW Ogryn Flesh thinned down all over, Vallejo Model Wash Dark Green on the skin and Minitaire Fresh Blood Ghost Tint on the lips and teeth.  
       
      The crown then got a base coat of Reaper Scorched Metal.  
       
      Apparently I didn’t take shots of it, but I then mat coated it and cleaned up the black around the face.  
       
      Tonight I’ll bring the skin back to an almost pure white, leaving the washes in the cracks and I’ll get his mouth done.  
      The crown is a more silver colour in the comics but I’m planning on sponging lighter metallics on to give it a less pristine look.  The leather will be relatively plain as I want the face to stand out, but it will get some highlights and buckles picked out. 
       
      Thanks for looking.
