... well, now I wanna stick elf-ears on her and paint her to look like Leetah. >.>

Or Rayla, if you give her some horns as well...

Me, I'm just happy that they're wearing reasonable amounts of clothing for their climate, as opposed to exposed midriffs/cleavage or battle bikinis.

Frost giants are immune to cold, though. They could run around naked and not be impacted by the temperature.

What would you say is the best glue for bones black? I haven't heard anyone say anything about changing glues yet, hopefully normal superglue will still be the best.

Thanks!

Does anyone have a decent pic of the Ghost Pirates?

And of the Barge's crew?

No barge, however, here's my pirates:

I can confirm, on the frost giants and their wolf, it seems to have worked fine.

Thanks, 

Hm, could be the pics, but are these so low on detail?

The painted example of the metal version has her middle finger on top of her ring finger on her left hand.  No idea about her right hand.  I don't own the metal version so I can't check myself.

Good catch! It looks like both hands are the same, it's just her finger positions. Maybe she is finger-tutting.

the biggest changes, and the changes a lot of people were upset about, was giving them much much bigger breasts instead of having them covered in armor and looking more warrior like

 

if you compare your mini pics to the concept art, you will see that both had armor removed so that big busts could be put in

 

a lot of people (myself included), liked these minis because they weren''t overly feminine with big busts like 99% of all other female  minis, so when they were changed to match other female minis, a lot of us were disappointed because one of the drawing points for us to this set was that they looked more warrior and less feminine while still being females. I'm mostly sad that they lost chest armor in order to have busts put in, it was nice that some female minis FINALLY had armored chests and busts minimally on display like true warriors would

 

and then it was changed. And that is why people were upset, because we asked for properly armored warrior female giants, and were shown properly armored warrior female giants, and then were given female giants with armor removed to make way for busts, which was a literal opposite as to WHY these  minis were requested and desired in the first place. It was asked to get this thing, and then we were given the opposite after paying for them

 

I do like the new giants. But I LOVED the concept art giants.

No - they're pretty high in detail. It's just always difficult to see any detail on the transparents.

I want to try to modify my frost giantess's wolf to look like the concept art, but I've never modded a figure to that extent, and I still do like the sculpt. *pokes wolf* It's not a bad sculpt, just not as awesome as the concept art. I think it would be a relatively easy mod, though...

Up to wave 10 now. INVICTUS!!

 

Out of the night that covers me,  
  Black as the Pit from pole to pole,  
I thank whatever gods may be  
  For my unconquerable soul.  
  
In the fell clutch of circumstance
  I have not winced nor cried aloud.  
Under the bludgeonings of chance  
  My head is bloody, but unbowed.  
  
Beyond this place of wrath and tears  
  Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years  
  Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.  
  
It matters not how strait the gate,  
  How charged with punishments the scroll,  
I am the master of my fate:
  I am the captain of my soul.

Now that I've inventoried everything, and even started painting my first mini... I need to actually store them somewhere. My bride's patience for having a giant box of bones next to the dining room table will expire soon...:unsure:

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
