In "Call of Cthulhu," you would be quite the sillybilly to go poking into dark mysteries without a party member versed in first aid or the medical sciences. Fortunately, Misk U. has a partnership arrangement with St. Mary's Teaching Hospital in Arkham!
50257, Dr. Thomas Welby, is the perfect sculpt for a good doctor. He specializes in nervous ailments. Look at that reassuring smile and Clipboard of Authority!
He is assisted by 50258, Nurse Anne Foster. Exceptionally capable and possessed of a knowledge of pharmacology that goes above and beyond. She's seen some tough cases.
And, of course, we need a surgeon! I had an extra 59029, Baron Simone LeCroix, and since I'd used Jack the Ripper as a circus knife thrower ( https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85248-circus-knife-thrower-and-assistant-50012-and-50125 ) I had a razor and a doctor's bag left over from his sprue. So the good Baron got a change of occupation after some wire-cutter-and-pliers surgery of his own. Barber, surgeon, veterinarian, what-have-you, he's skilled with a sharp blade.
Speaking of nervous cases, Miskatonic is rough on the sanity. The old Call of Cthulhu Occupation 3-packs from RAFM usually come with a character doing just fine, a character encountering something unsettling, and a character on the edge of madness or deadness or both. This sculpt was the last of the three for the Professor 3-pack. Hidden for triggers: suicidal ideation.
Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons. They fascinate me. This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well. She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up. The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy
This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.
