Better late than never.
Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December. I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme. Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.
With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal. I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits. I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans. I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
What are some of your favorite holiday minis?
So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things. I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch.
Here she is:
Always thought she was a cute little figure. The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice. But one of these days I'm sure they will pop up again.
Anyhoos, enjoy, happy belated Christmas and New Year!

It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment.
Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces. It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share.
The base is just a piece of log, and the moose is a very cheap plastic toy (I repainted mine), which I managed to find at a local discount store in big buckets of 50 animals for £2, they really cheap and nasty, but actually paint up nicely. Everything else is just standard modeling stuff, sculptamold, static grasses, clump foliage etc.
On another note I have not forgotten about or abandoned my Apocalyptic Suburbia Journal, it is still sat on my desk gathering dust. I plan to get back to it in the new year.
Decided to give the group dice trays this year for the holidays.
I wanted to get this done before Saturday and I wanted to take a shot at getting at least a first one done tonight.
So here is the prototype. The finished format will be actually glued down as well as nailed down. I was trying to decide if I like the nail on the top. On the prototype it let's me move things around but they will be optional on the final version.
