Mi casa...

Well, As part of the Real Life Package TM it looks like we're buying a house:


(Artist's impression)


I normally try not to put too much personal stuff on this blog because, frankly, nobody cares. But one small reason I'm excited about this move is that I'll finally be able to replace this


Old painting space


with this


New painting space


Actually, right now I don't even have "a space" at all, and all my stuff lives in a little wheeled cart so I can paint at the kitchen table and then put it away. So needless to say I am looking forward to this :)

Some works in progress...

The Doctor's TARDIS
35 mm




The TARDIS. It's blue. When it's done, it'll be less-patchy blue, with a nice base.

Riflethings
15 mm




I thought I'd do these guys a little differently, to show them working as a team. Or, you know, hanging around a trash barrel, but whatever.

A couple of Things

Riflethings
15 mm





Just a couple of 15mm minis. I have two more of these Things to finish up... perhaps next week? I have a Khurasan order coming in with some oil barrels I'd like to add as base dressing. (I also finally ordered these, which I'm looking forward to painting... and I see there are some new Riflething sculpts available, if I want to expand my collection)

My available "hobby time" has settled down to ~ 5:30-6:30 am, which is nice because I've got a big cup of coffee in front of me, the house is quiet, and my wife and kidlet are asleep. The downside is that absolutely nothing noisy can be done, which rules out, eg. listening to some inspirational Bolt Thrower, or firing up the Dremel to grind off some attached bases :P




Also, for the record, I'd like to thank javi for producing this amazing piece in his inimitable style:



For those familiar with the game Half-Life, it's a... nose-crab. Not really any less parasitically horrific than the standard headcrabs, IMO.
