Slow Daze...

Busy at work... no energy :(



Did a bit of work on my demonic cowgirl. I like the shade of Hell Kitten Crimson I mixed up for her skin, now I just have to motivate myself to paint.

I've also been trying some "real painting":



Mmm, shades of Grade 8 art class.

Old Bones

Morbid Puppet
28 mm

Finished my skeleton (I think):





I used some non-metallic-based corrosion effects, both iron and bronze here, since he's supposed to have been dead and buried for a while.

Score!

I picked up a lot of old Star Wars minis on eBay yesterday. These figures are over 10 years old and quite rare so this is a pretty sweet find:


Minis are: R2-D2, Luke (Bespin), Chewbacca, Luke (Tatooine/Death Star), Stormtrooper, Rebel pilot, Han Solo, Admiral Ackbar, another droid, Gamorrean Guard. Some have previously been painted but it'll be easy to strip that off.

Sophie and Old Bones

The exchange figure (see previous post) I chose to start with is "Sophie" - Reaper Miniatures' demonic mascot, in a rather odd form:



I'm also working on this creepy guy - a skeleton warrior in mid-resurrection. He's sort of a techniques test for future projects:

Exchange - Holy smokes!

CoolMiniOrNot.com Miniature Exchange #4

Sent to Todd ("DM of Doom") in Largo, Florida:


 Alternative Armies Feral Orc and Rackham Iron Priestess.


Received from Ann ("Anatora") in Prattville, Alabama:



So much! Soooo much! Highlights are a limited edition ReaperCon figure (upper right), A "Cabalistic Angel" (lower right), a neat pirate (small unlabeled bag), and "Jain Zar: the Storm of Silence" (upper left). I am truly touched by such generosity :)

Now, which one do I paint first...?

Dark Knight - finished!

Batman
28 mm

"The night... brooding... Gotham's evildoers... etc..."

A big improvement if I do say so myself. Posted on CoolMiniOrNot here.

Slowly but surely

Working up the blue highlights on his cowl & cape...



His base, grey bits and face are essentially done. Just the cape, belt and chest logo to work on now.
