yeah.. morning and went...Oh wit, you still have this and this and this that need doing as well. So I am not as far ahead as I thought, but I think I am still going good for five days. We are at 13 hours in on day 3 now, so well past mid way through, or just hitting mid way if I am forced to stretch it to seven days. I think the stress is starting to kick in, so I am going to drink my coffee, browse the internet a bit and slow myself down before I dive in again. Gotta keep the vibe from taking a nose dive.

yes I can. I will. I am not going to lose, especially not to some crazy person like myself. I'm far more stubborn than me. However, I am now on a forced break, since my hand just does not want to hold a brush still. There is this group of muscles where your index finger and thumb join. It really really hurts. I wonder if folks like Jessica Rich or Michael Proctor, or Izzy, who spend a lot more time with pencil and brush in hand would do better, but then I also wonder how well a professional painter would fare in a challenge like this, or if their normal level of excellence would get in the way of the speed and shortcuts you just have to take?

we are now on to day 4. 48 hours to go. I now have all the heads done to a level I am mostly satisfied with. I am not entirely happy with the body, and I still have the claws and wing bones that are not yet done. A little worried about assembly. The arms, and necks all have plenty of surface area to glue and pin if needed, but the wings have me worried, I don't really have anything for pinning something this size.

Use either large paper clips, or thin wire from a coat hanger...

Unless you cut parts off, the wing should glue very securely without pins.  It's a good design, some can hold together even without gluing.  

 

My brush hand cramps and seizes into weird positions, I just work it out and press on.  It has done this while painting, though, and because the muscle snaps to that position it takes the brush along.  This has not only smeared paint on finished parts, but actually catapulted minis from my other hand.  This has even happened at least twice on the hangout.

well, I am not done, but I had to get of hangouts as my tablet was dying, so I decided to snap a couple shots on my phone, and take a couple minute break. I am at the point where I am going cross eyed looking for something I don't have paint on, or that needs a fix, or too often where I rubbed paint off, because this thing is a brute and heavy and hard to move around. I also do not have a space to actually put it when I am done

      Another one bites the dust….😆
       
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 


       
      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..
