Friday, July 17:  What is your favorite non-Reaper miniature company?

 

Iron Wind Metals. Battletech is what got me into miniatures, way back when.

Well, I do really enjoy papercraft, so... here's a dice tower I finished this weekend.

July 15: Halfway though; are you enjoying summer this year (or winter for you Aussies and other south-siders)?

No.  I'm discovering my A/C can't cope with the heat.  This wasn't an issue last year when I worked in the office and the A/C was allowed to relax during the day.  Now I work from home and it has to work all day...

July 16: What is your favorite dinosaur...I care?

 

When I was a kid, stegosaurus.  These days, not sure.  I haven't thought about it.

 

Alternative, snarky answer: The TI-99/4A in my closet.

Bad Squiddo Games.  Annie seems like good, fun people and I like the miniatures she has commissioned.  I had to sit out her last KS but I backed the three before that.

 

Other options considered:

  • Dark Sword Miniatures
  • Iron Wind Metals
  • Oathsworn Miniatures

I got to work all weekend so no pictures this weekend.

It took me all weekend. but I finally got a photo that sums me up pretty well.

 

I absolutely love nature. I'm never happier than when I'm out looking for wildlife and if you can get a gorgeous micropredator to land on your hand, well, that's just the best feeling.

Miniature Monday, July 20:  What is the strangest mini you have ever painted.

The correct answer is probably the death dumpster, but I've showed that a bunch of times, so instead here's a few mutants of varying degrees of weirdness. Also an angry robot kobold.

Never did get around to taking any meaningful pics over the weekend so I'm going to skip that one. 

 

But for today's question I'd have to say it's a mini I'm currently working on, Reaper's Black Goat of the Woods (here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92140-the-black-goat-with-a-thousand-young/). It's definitely way out there on the creepy-weird scale. All those mouths, eyes, tentacles and other unsavory orifices all over the place are kind of gross. I'm loving it.

Maybe these wonderful somewhat silly  Posion Dart Frogs mounted on Toads.

 

Company - Eureka.

They were a gift from @malefactus and I painted them for my Lost World Project.

Frogs... Mounted on... Toads?

 

All my childhood I was taught that Frog and Toad were just best friends that baked cookies, ate cookies, and tried very hard to stop eating cookies. Now I see the dark, grim truth of reality...

Of the minis that I've actually taken photos of, my weirdest one is probably Shub-Niggurauth. I've painted several Sandy Peterson Cthulhu minis as well that are quite bizarre, and there's the Apocalypse mini from CMON's The Others that's pretty weird.
