There is at least a 40% chance that I will wind up spending my whole evening working on a website for a fake band tonight.

 

Part of me is also considering a nuclear-krill ribbon for ReaperCon. Maybe as a prize for anybody who beings a krill-related entry to the paint competition.

 

Edit:

We also need t-shirts

 

Edit on edit:

@OneBoot: What have you done!?

 

And a Facebook page and a Twitter account, both documenting the band's "tour", which involves crossing the US and Canada in a 1976 Ford Econoline van and crashing as many music festivals as possible.

It must include Fresno.

 

All fake tours must include Fresno.

So, an update.

 

Illinois, the state I live in, now has a budget as of 7/6/2017, after going 736 days with no budget. (I live in Southern Illinois, which I define as everything along and south of I-64)

 

A new mattress for me from a mattress company known as Leesa is on the way and should arrive tomorrow (I am frequently checking the package tracking page on the UPS site)

 

My 4th of July went well, and was also explosive. (meaning that my family set off a bunch of fireworks)

I've been to Fresno. It doesn't actually exist.

 

I mean it's no Turlock, but it's definitely in the top 10 fake California cities.

 

For the purposes of a fake band tour, I am going to call this a feature, and not a bug.

Of course there's a Fresno, California!

      It's definitely a worm, and it's definitely purple. Speed paint.

      Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts.
      I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      These guys are the truly random offerings I have wrapped up so far this year.  Many were half-finished somewhere beforehand, but I don't keep track of start dates.

      To start of 2019 with hopes of a revised Mordheim, I offer another (converted) Pit Fighter to the bloody streets.
       

       
      Mantic's scatter terrain from Terrain Crate
       

       

      A fat jailer from Paizo



      A Dwarf Prisoner from the same Paizo set.


       
       
      An iconic Rat Catch from Mega Minis.  I think Turnkey Miniatures makes it these days.

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.
       

      Left to right:
      Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero

      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!
