Yeah, when you have 100+ paints several do tend to be forgotten.  :rolleyes:

 

I have the same problem on occasion, and I only have 75 so far.  I bet it will be even more pronounced once I double such...

Oh, one more thing to add!

 

You ever see the (spoiler alert for 25 year old show, I guess) the episode of DS9 where O'Brien goes to virtual jail, and because of food shortages there when he comes back out and he's eating dinner with Keiko he starts taking food off his plate to save for later as a hedge against starvation?  Even though the replicator will provide all he could want?

 

I'm like that with brushes.  The absolute horror of running out at the worst time in 2016/2017 over the holidays and waiting forever for new arrivals, forced to work with my tattered and miserable poofy weasels, has made me completely paranoid about brushes.  So even though my new Ro & Co are magnificent and long-lived, I'm afraid to use them in case I run out.  So what I'm doing is riding brushes out until the most bitter end, even when a fresh brush is what I need to do the job. 

 

So I ordered a fresh supply, which is large enough that it should make me less scared of using them.  I literally ordered double what I thought I needed so I can carve off some to store away like squirrel nuts.  You know, in case I get sent back to virtual brush jail.

Yup, I rotate my brush usage.  And have live 5-6 R&Co, 2-3 Raphael, 2-3 W&N just so I won't run out.  I dip the end in primer so I know which is being relegated to primer duty so I don't accidentally use primer on my current good brush.

Thanks, guys! ^_^

I’m a lot happier with him now that I’m not painting him anymore. My brain just was not cooperating with me. 

I don’t think the shield would have turned out as well as it did had you not put in my head that the blank quarters could be boring, @Chaoswolf and who would've thought that even my cynical statements forcing myself to think positively would actually work out? :lol:

      Hi everyone, after sitting five months on the shelf, that being the projet (not me)  I finally found time to complete my Gnolls display base. The base is 7.25 inches x 11 inches wide. Here are some pictures.
      Other pictures of the Gnolls can be found here.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of my Gnoll hunting party. All of them are Reaper Miniatures Gnolls, painted with Reaper Master Series Paints. I added the archer's bowstring and converted two models (see last picture).
      I will now work on a display base for them.

      Continuing with the random minis for now: Cavalry.

      Bones Cavalry that is. Over the course of 4 delivered kickstarters of Bones models, Reaper has released a total of 9 mounted models. (11 if you count the flying saucer from the Bones 2 Chronoscope Expansion and the chopper bike mounted Sophie (the one and only Bones KS model delivered in metal!) in the first Bones kickstarter.)

      Well, "mounted" is also a theme to use to get something painted, isn't it? And with 9 or 11 models to go for, it should be possible to get done in a timely manner.
      Here are the first pair of them that I have painted up.

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season.
      So I am getting back on track with some Orcs.  These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10.
      There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them.
      I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis.

      lots of pictures below
