Natural Born Krillaz


Journey with me

Into the mind of a planktonac

Doomed to be a Krilla

Since I came out a whale snack

I'm in a turbulant sea-state

With a wave full of terror

I see a prawn in the mirror

"I'm starting with the krill in the mirror... I'm asking him to change his ways..."

And, yet, you use a picture of "Snake" Plissken as your avatar...

Ha! Ok, so you got me there... I haven't resolved this personal conundrum currently... 

I justify it by liking Kurt Russell, by being born mostly blind in my left eye (peripheral vision only) and wishing I had that much hair... 

At ReaperCon, many will see that there is truly no similarity beyond this... 


"You just listen to the old Pork Chop Express here now and take his advice on a dark and stormy night when the lightning's crashin' and the thunder's rollin' and the rain's coming down in sheets thick as lead. Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

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.

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.

We also need t-shirts


Edit on edit:

@OneBoot: What have you done!?

You know, I actually have a good mini for this...

Do NOT read the 'TalesfromRetail' subReddit... 

Yes, people DO get discounts if they scream and behave like a spoiled 5year old...  


Nuclear Krill...

What's the tour name?  

Back in Krill?


For added fun, add Molde International Jaz festival to the tour list. 

(Third week of July every year)

It's not as if they play all that much Jaz there, anyway...  

List the venue as 'The Moldives'.

(Nickname for the islets nearby)

"Krilling Yourself To Live"

Well people look and people stare
Well I don't think that I even care
You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only krilling yourself to live
Krilling yourself to live
Krilling yourself to live

Just take a look around you what do you see
Pain, suffering, and misery
It's not the way that the world was meant
It's a pity you don't understand
Krilling yourself to live
Krilling yourself to live

I'm telling you
Believe in me
Nobody else will tell you
Open your eyes
And see the lies, oh yeah

You think I'm crazy and baby
I know that it's true
Before that you know it I think
That you'll go crazy too

I don't know if I'm up or down
Whether black is white or blue is brown
The colors of my life are all different somehow
Little boy blue's a big girl now

So you think it's me who's strange
But you've never had to make the change
Never give your trust away
You'll end up paying till your dying day

Will there be an European Tour?

I have been a fan since the first demotape!

You know.. Skrills For Hire!


Awesome rough sound, they have evolved, but I still remember that first time I heard them.

It changed my life!!!

      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.

      A Barbarian porter from Frostgrave

      A Dwarf Waitress from TAG

      And a converted Kislevite Archer from Warhammer parts.

      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!
