I have a painting WIP running, and I think it is going decently well - I am keeping up on it, anyhow.
I thought I would start a cumulative WIP on whatever random sculpting and terrain I do. It is a pretty big part of the hobby for me, and I enjoy it a lot, so I hope to keep it going on a personal level. While I am easily better at sculpting digitally (by a lot), I really don't enjoy doing it. At this point in my life, significant time spent in front of a computer is work, and I have enough of that to do. So, Ill post my ham fisted attempts to sculpt things for my personal collection below.
So...I have been having some really long and tediously boring zoom meetings, and I have found that I can't both paint and maintain a CYA level of paying attention, but I can crudely sculpt with clay. rather than working on any of my projects that require focus, I thought I'd work on something that can be haphazard to keep it light through the process. I have been obsessive over plant monsters lately, so I thought I'd make a tendriculos. Big, forgiving, and fun - perfect!
I had a marathon of meetings today, so I was able to jump right in and make some progress. Thus far all I have is an armature with a thin coating of polymer clay - but it's a start!
A thin disk of felt on the underside of the masts of Sophie's Revenge, and other strategies to paint this beastBy Pancakeonions
I am stunned at my recently arrived Sophie's Revenge, and so excited to get it to the painting table (I will have to significantly reconfigure my painting space to ensure I have enough room... As well as buy LOTS of new brown paint, ha!) It is a thing of beauty, even without a lick of paint on it.
One of the first things I noticed was how the magnetized masts SNAP to the deck, hard. That's what you want, so they'll stay firmly in place. But when you remove 'em, they'll likely scratch the heck out of the painted deck. So I plan to cut disks of black felt to glue to the underside/ magnet-side of the masts, so that when they stick, they're more gentle. Thin felt should not affect how they stick, but it should make a big difference on the ship's wear and tear.
Are you planning on painting yours? What strategies are you going to adopt to make it as beautiful as you can, while still keeping it sturdy as a plaything for your RPGs, wargames, or maybe even little kids (don't judge! mine are gonna be all over this thing!)
StackaRack is a customisable plastic rack for miniature paints, designed to hold pots or bottles from any of the major manufacturers.
Paint collections have a way of growing organically, and most of the current paint rack solutions out there are fixed to specific configurations, and made for a specific type of paint pot. If you're like me, and collect multiple brands of paint, that can make organising them a little frustrating, and so we thought we would try to fix that.
StackaRack was designed to hold any of the major miniature paint ranges - from the dropper bottles used by Vallejo and Army Painter, to the tall pots from the likes of Privateer and Reaper (and GW's old range), and the current stubby Citadel pots. The injection moulded plastic parts will fit together with plastic clips, allowing you to build it how you like, and disassemble and reconfigure it as needed.

Looking quite good! I'm backing for the character set.
