5  bottles of locktite down and Im just about finished with assembly. The Frost Giant Raiders come almost fully assembled shipped. Very strange since the Fire Giant Huntsman is in a lot of pieces. The little guys are the hardest work for me to put together. I dropped one guys leg and still havent found it. I will start some painting today. I hope everyone gets their Bones soon. Im not frequent on these forums so I probably won't be back till Bones 5 begins. Take care and have fun with your Bones.

I discovered how handy it is that my hobby table is on wheels when I kept dropping heads and arms under it.

Yeah, but there isn't much you can do about all that blood.... Oh, wait, what hobby?

 

The Auld Grump - I wonder if Sweeney Todd is going to play locally, any time soon....

 

*EDIT* Ticker is chugging along - someone's pledge just headed out on the Santa Ana winds.... ::D: (Way out here, they have a name for wind and rain and fire. The rain is Tess, the fire's Joe, and they call the wind Maria....)

 

*EDIT 2* And now Fall Church - which I just saw last night in Fallout 3.... Hope it gets past the Super Mutants. ::P:

Wow. The townspeople from the core set where just what I needed to break my slump. I don't feel like they have to be perfect, making them great for 1-day paints. The friar from the set I painted with little effort up to a low display, tabletop+. I am gonna continue with them for a little while...I never expected to actually like them this much. I also got 2 dreadmeres - so I can extend the practice out to those townspeople too!

And just realized that the dawnspeople from Lost Valley can also be treated like townspeople...yay! More practice! 
 

Now to see if I can do 1/day to tabletop+ or display.

I'm using the towns people in the same way to get back into a painting groove.

I just finished up the barge !! which was the last of all my gluing ( I had 1 of each but left most wings and that globe unglued) When i was putting the barge away I knocked over the mammouth and broke a tusk... So Now I have tusk under my desk... he actually looks tough with it broken. i may not fix.

You could always drill out the end of the broken tusk and put it on the Blackfoot Terror's base. That way the mammoth can tell all his friends he lost his tusk in an epic dino battle, instead of admitting it broke off when an unarmed human knocked him over. Think of his pride. :rolleyes:

Do people glue everything together even if they don't plan to paint it right away?  I glued the little stuff to make sure I had all the pieces, but Blacksting, skeletal dragon, everything with a wing span or large in general I left unassembled.  I mean it packs easier rather then taking up all that space on a shelf for a year until I get around to painting it.  I dry fit everything it course to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

It's a matter of personal preference, honestly. I usually don't glue things together until I'm getting ready to paint.

      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.

      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.

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