The Colouring-in Room / Heresy Hellhounds WIP Sept 23, 2017
« on: August 29, 2017, 06:12:16 AM »
So these have been getting assembled.  Sadly, they've been in this state for some time.  We won't talk about that.  Have been trying to figure out how twitter works and this pic was copied to here from my twit-thing, so there's that.

These beasts will be accompanied by two groups of goblins also from Heresy.  The gobs haven't been started yet though.

Heresy / Metal Netherlord 2 (warnings for naughty bits)
« on: July 03, 2017, 10:35:30 PM »
Ok finally finished two months ago.  Got some pictures now.  There will be nether noodle showing.  This guy is really hard to take pictures of.

Please bear in mind, I haven't actually photographed any miniatures in a very long time so these shots may be crap.  The sword is intended to be bone with a metal skull hilt with ruby eyes, bone handle and metal spike at the end.  I couldn't get a good shot of the axe at all except what is seen in pic three.  In pic two, under his raised leg can be seen two white things.  These are actually the vertebrae from a rodent that was eaten by an owl and left on a rock in my yard as an "owl pellet".  Gross and morbid but, hey whatever right?  They'd been there a long time I must add.

Hasslefree Babble / Archive Gallery?
« on: March 16, 2017, 06:28:38 AM »
Just out of curiosity and a pinch of nostalgia, has there ever been a thought of creating a gallery of images of retired figures?  If such pictorial evidence still exists?  Just a thought.  Or is such a thing out there now...?

Let the ridicule commence!

Best wishes on your B Day, Andy.  I may be late by the time anyone sees this but whatever.  Sincerest hopes this year sees much success and profitability.

Movies/TV/Music Zone / Does Anyone Here...?
« on: February 12, 2017, 12:55:17 AM »
I may be unpopular with this question, but maybe not eh? :wink:  But in a world wracked by zombie and other 'fad' shows who knows.

Does anyone else here use the streaming service Crunchyroll?  Now to why I'm asking.  I want to know if anyone has any recommendations for good fantasy and Sci-fi.  I don't want to waste my time with shows about people playing video games.  I've watched Sword Art Online, the first one mind you.  It was alright but it tried too hard to be a dot Hack successor.  Now, I do have dot Hack on DVD and thought it was brilliant, especially the end, which lead straight into the game, which I also enjoyed.  That was where the concept should have stopped.  A sort of, "Let's do this.  Ok, that's excellent.  No one ever do it again."

The main reason I signed up for CR was to watch the golden oldies, Galaxy Express 999, Captain Harlock, and Golion, but I also want to see some modern stuff, as these shows only have so many episodes.  Dubbing or subtitles don't matter.  I've also watched a few episodes of Fairy Tail and may still watch more.

OK let the scorn and abuse begin!

Ideas for New Heresy Models / Tunnel Dweller Options
« on: December 13, 2016, 03:00:33 AM »
I know it might be gruesome, but that's partially why I'm suggesting it.  How about a female-ish torso as an option for the wretched thing?  Possibly as a separately available part?

Over on the book-face place, there can be found a post about bringing back some out of production figures if there is enough demand.  I vote for this lady:

I've been wanting to get her since before she went away.  I think I literally waited 5 minutes too long.  I can remember going to order and she wasn't there.   I like the gangly demon guys too.

 I also would not be opposed to the possibility of more lurkers being available.

Sorry about the size, but I'm going to need a few of her.  More ladies like her please.  Clothed and not.

Movies/TV/Music Zone / Truly Aweful.
« on: June 11, 2016, 05:24:47 AM »
So I've been watching bunches of Sci fi movies lately.  Trying to watch would be a better statement.  Currently I am grinding my teeth and way through 'Age of Tomorrow'.  Not really sure if I should be admitting to be doing so.  Yes, age of not edge of.  Watched that too.  This mess is so low budget that it is painfully obvious.  The scenes that take place on the alien world are filmed in a botanical garden.  Then the footage is filtered.  I don't know if they didn't notice or they were hoping no body would, but in multiple shots the little signs that identify plants are obvious.  Not readable but obvious.  Closer to the beginning, there were multi multi reused clips most of which weren't even flipped 180 degrees to make them less noticeable.  Just passed a scene where there is literally silly string on some 'alien' boxes.  Really depressing to see Robert Picardo as a general.  The floating drone ball things aren't consistently sized either.  The walls of the corridor in the alien compound are made of plastic shipping pallets.

OMG so bad.

Getting really excited about this lady.  Have been looking at photos on instagraham cracker.  Have to say I might think about starting to think about maybe thinking about beginning to think about starting to become impatient.  I've tried to copy some of the photos here but haven't been able to.  So I'll just say that I'm really looking forward to finally getting all my KS stuff.

Eye Candy / I Need This

I need her.  Two or three of her even.

Tried to not have it giant, but reposting can prevent that I guess.

Can I have her tomorrow?

These ones too.

Really excited to see progress on her.  For those of us not on social media, here she is.  Well, her back anyway.

Random Chat / Maggotman Needs a Name
« on: September 17, 2015, 03:11:54 AM »
So there was a tweet about this guy needing a name that wasn't Maggotman 3 and wasn't disgusting.  If he still needs a name my vote is for Mr Munch, or Omnom Norm.

The Colouring-in Room / Tilda
« on: August 29, 2015, 04:51:14 AM »
Well she was going to be part of the DoD 14 but I failed in the building in scale portion.  Also while I was editing the photos I realized I forgot to do anything with her eyes, so decided this should go in the coloring in room section.

Well, I hope I got the spelling right on her name.  Apologies for the possibly really bad photos.  I'm very rusty on that aspect.  I wanted to do some spell effects on her outstretched arm but everything looked awful.  Instead, I went for a 'first embracing her power' look.  Quite happy with how she turned out, as she was the first mini painted in quite some time for me.

General Ranting / Breaking the Silence

So it has been quite some time since I have been around here.  I haven't been very active in the hobby much in the last year.  Apparently the Cult of Inevitable  Decay took more out of me than I thought.  I have on numerous occasions, sat down at my work bench wanting to paint something, only to look at the pile of assembled figures, then the larger one of untouched ones, and had the 'I want to but could do something else less daunting' feeling.  Most of the time, that alone has made me feel awful about not doing anything, but at the same time, I have not wanted to try and push through and end up feeling like I could have done better if I actually wanted to be doing what I was doing.  I have actually had a couple of successful paint jobs gone from start to finish, this last few months, like mutant Joe, Aisnath Waite (spelling?) and Tilda in particular.  I hope to be able to get pictures of them this weekend to post here.  Also, I have returned my attention to the horrible nasty spikey beast that is the Netherlord 2.  I just finished the, I think, fifth layer of skin tone a few minutes ago.  Maybe four or five more to go, maybe less.  Have to see how it goes.  Seeing as he is mostly skin, he will be over half done when I'm happy with the way he looks.  I should get pictures of  him too. 

I haven't painted much, and now that it is nearly September, which brings about hunting season in my part of the world, I don't know how much I will be painting in the near future, but I hope to be inspired to do so when I get time.  Life gets in the way.  That's the way of it.  I have been struggling with addiction as well.  I can admit it.  That's the first step right?  Admitting you have a problem.  Then wanting to be rid of the thing that is a problem for you.  Then getting rid of it and staying away from it.  Stupid Minecraft!  Not what you were expecting?  Sorry to disappoint.  I was actually addicted to it I think.  I believe I have an addictive personality, if that is what you want to call it.  The very reason I've always said no to alcohol, drugs, coffee and WoW.  Dude all of those things together are a very bad idea.

I took advantage of the Slain Dragon Sale earlier and ordered some things from Heresy, and have my eye for some things from Hasslefree and Fenris, so the hobby isn't dead in me yet.  Hopefully it never is.  Anyhoo, I was going to post this before posting in any other thread but got distracted.

Looking forward to sharing what I've been working on, and to see what you lot are up to.  I'm going to try and be an active member here abouts again so, see you 'round soon.

Cool Toys / Is Batman Crying?
« on: March 07, 2015, 01:50:52 AM »
So, I like to post things here, once in a while.  Today is a Batman 1/6 scale figure.  But he looks almost like he is crying in this picture.

Maybe it is because he is disolving into a million bats.  It must be uncomfortable.

Cool Toys / Too Bad.
« on: February 03, 2015, 06:07:39 AM »
Had a nose about some japanese hobby forums and gallery sites.  Seems that Bandai has a new grade of model kits.  You may be familiar with their Master Grade, of which there are more than a few kits.  I found out they have this Real Grade.  Too bad they've wasted it so far.  Filled it with nothing but that Gundam crap.  Why can't they do some good stuff, Macross, Patlabor, Votoms.  Nope, Gundam garbagio.  Does anyone even like it?  Yes, too many people.  Its a plague, like MLP. :soapbox:

Ideas for New Heresy Models / Elephant Man
« on: October 29, 2014, 02:27:56 AM »
I would like to see the Heresy take on an ogre sized elephant man.  Even if its just the head of an elephant.  With a large heavy two handed weapon.

Discuss.  Or not.

Gonna give it a shot this year.  Not going to go epic on it.  Small steps.

I believe this meets the reqs for start pic.  Date of photo, unpainted minis, all from FoD companies.

Questions and Answers / Any Experience with Bolt Action?
« on: September 28, 2014, 05:19:39 PM »
Does anyone here have any experience with Warlord Games' Bolt Action line?  Specifically tanks.  I am wondering because I have a plan for a dio, in my plan book, but it is currenly involving two 1/48 scale wrecker trucks from Wespe Models.  My concern is the trucks may be too large.  That and cost, and space needed.  I could easily switch up for a tank and change the whole dio, make it smaller two.

So, any opinions on quality, detail etc.?  Most interested in the US Pershing, maybe a Sherman right now.


ps. Yes, this is way outside my norm.  Change is good, right?
