      Presenting Jelsen the Vampire Hunter from Games Workshops Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City board game.
      Pretty pleased with this one, I was worried about how to paint certain areas (Like his little tucked away face), but I think he ended up looking decent.

      Part of my goal for the year was to reduce my literal Shelf of Shame:  The minis that I started and put down and never came back to.  Some of those minis are recent, some extend all the way back to when i started painting minis in about 2014 or so.
      So as the first installment, here are a few things I've painted since the beginning of the year:
      First up is the Pillar of Good and Pillar of Evil:

      I forget why I had these on the shelf.  I think I was intending to paint them along with the rest of the dungeon decor from the second Reaper Kickstarter.  While the barrels and crates were finished long ago, these languished until now.
      They are painted with a green-stone mixture:  Vallejo's Model Air Dark SeaGreen and US Light Grey , and drybrushed with a mix of US Light Grey and Model Color Dark Sand.
      I did the Pillar of Evil quickly, but then needed something to practice Reaper's NMM Gold Triad on, so the Pillar of Good got the treatment.  Flowers are Reaper Punk Rock Pink, with Breast Cancer Awareness Pink highlights.

      Second up is a collection of large vermin Dire Rats:

      Not every mini can be a hero.  Some have to be rats.

      These have been on the self of shame since the start.  They were painted and stripped several times, and even served as test minis for various primers.  I didn't care much about them, but they were on the shelf and are a quick-and-dirty (!) painting task.  The paint job is table-top quality, but I did like the final coloration, so I'll record it here for the Giant Rats I have to paint later:
      Fur:  Layer up with dry-brushing:
      MSP Walnut Brown
      MSP Russet Brown 
      MSP Intense Brown
      MSP Intense Brown mixed with any ivory color on your palette  
      Base: HD Entrail Pink
      Highlight: MSP Old West Rose
      Detail: MSP New Copper
      Finally, here is the current state of the Shelf of Shame:

      (I told you, it was a literal shelf!  It's a shadowbox made from a plastic 12" x 12" picture frame and foam core board.  See: GCB Tries Foam Core Joinery.)
      They're mostly Reaper minis I have to finish/repaint.  The notable exception are the Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion figures on the top shelf.  This group should be entirely doable, by the end of the year.  Then I get to pull out new minis to paint!

      Just picking up on all the posts I've missed over the last few months.  







      Battle Report! 
      Turns out squigs are not just funny looking, they are funny to paint.  I loved these models and really found they took amazing to dry brushing. I was testing colors and layers.  
      * dry brush was excellent.  Used some cheapo makeup brushes and they did great. 
      * i used a purple glaze over orange and then built it up with orange further.  Looked good. 
      *  blue came out great, but i don't know what layers to use on it to give contrast like the purple orange one. 
      *teeth are all solid and look good. 
      *skin folds are natural looking and added freckles on some are much better than expected. 
      * the yellow one was testing out transparent paints and it went on like a dream. 
      *not too many complaints really.  These all came out more or less as expected.  
      * challenged by how low they are to the base and getting them with ground effects. 
      *never painted mushrooms and wasn't sure how to go about it.

      When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior.
      One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target.
      Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand. 
      Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement.
      Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now.

      Finished the Paint job on another marine.  I'll need to come up with a cool base.  I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. 
      Here's the first one of this set up. 

      Here's the purebred. 
      Give me feedback.  If you'd like this black background let me know.
