What are you working on building or painting this month? have any pictures?

 

Removing this and putting in a proper raised bed:

This was taken last summer so most of the greenery has died back, but there was still a lot to pull out.  Most of it got cleaned last weekend, but it has rained continuously since.  Three of the four side boards have been painted and laid on top of the brick foundation walls.   At the right where the wild tomatoes are growing is the bottom of our deck steps, and earlier this week I picked up some additional pavers for that area.  Still have to level and put down weed barrier, etc.  Also have several bags of dirt to spread as the new bed is a foot wider than the old one. 

 

If I get a chance to sit down for a while, I'll finish up these guys:

Waiting for a BOGW to arrive. That's gonna decide what hits the bench next.

The same thing I work on every month, trying to paint more and slow down on buying more minis. Sadly, I am failing on both this month.

 

Mini-wise, I have a lot of things leftover from last year to finish up. Hopefully I'll make some headway in the coming weeks.

A few things.... 

- MG Ginn initial build

- MG Zaku 1 Sniper conversion (more work on the head) 

- MG Strike Rouge w/Ootori (waterslide application) 

- Queen of Hell (more painting) 

- Meirsoa bust (initial zenithal prime after I make sure any residual resin is rinsed out of the inside - may oray not include actual painting) 

- prime some Conquest minis (thinking some Household Knights) 

- maybe assemble some Conquest minis, I've been in a "glue all the things!" kinda mood the past few days...

What do you know about card games? Know any unusual ones? have you ever won at faro? Did you cheat?

 

No expert but I've played a few over the years. Cribbage, Uno and Groo are the only ones I've played in the last year. Used to play kaiser, hearts, rummy, canasta and other when I was younger.

TACOS! What's your favorite kind? What sides do you like with them?

 

Tacos are comparable to pizza, you need to work hard to make a bad one. Most often we do ground beef with lettuce, tomato and often other things in a large soft shell so no need for a side dish.

Miles and miles of barbwire fence, reconstructing all of the plumbing in my house on the farm because it froze when my furnace went out at -30C in February and on the hobby front maybe finish my WW2 Soviet mechanised corps. Need to print a bunch of trucks and a few tanks/afvs and give them a quick paint job. Wouldn't take long but this time of year I'm not in the basement much.

A Duergar Hammerer from WotC's version of Chainmail

I did not when I started to answer this. But I managed to snap one.

Duergar Hammerer

 

The Hammerer was part of a small box set that included a Human Glaivesman and a Human Sorceror. I never knew if this golem-like construct was built by the Duergar or if it was made by the human faction for the specific purpose of pounding on Duergar. 

 

The work I did on him was to reattach the left arm which had become detached from the ball-and-socket shoulder.

 

The stock model has one hammer arm and one claw arm, but somehow mine has double hammers.

Had to add picture using phone.

What if anything do you listen to while painting? have any recommendations for the rest of us?

 

Music or live sports.  I've found if I paint while listening to something that I actually need to pay attention to, I end up doing one or the other.

Last night I kind of got talked into helping someone try and find recordings of a show they had seen a long time ago that is now mostly unavailable, so...

 

May 3:

Is there any sort of lost media you're still looking for? Old TV shows? Songs you can't find recordings of? Missing books? That one issue of a magazine that was the only source for rules for a really cool out of print mini? Tell us about it.

 

No.  I don't collect old media.

I eat normal tacos, with taco meat and taco filling.

One plan for the day was to pick out a kit to practice using my airbrush with, but I never got around to it.

This month I'm mostly working on stuff to use for various one page rules armies. For right now I think the lizards are first so they can be the cheep troops for the list with the gnolls. But my plans may change if the new star grave minis arrive soon.

Still working on my Indomitus Captain. Started on him last summer, but it's hard to stay motivated since the FLGS closed and there haven't been any games going. Also, characters tend to be more difficult for me but I don't want to start something new because I know I'd never get back to this one.

Currently on the table I've got Polyxeni the Mirror Mage, the evil Torg and a Kingdom Death Knight.

Not sure if I'll have any month left after they're done.
