Cracks me up!  Great job!

All I'm hearing in my head is Justin Timberlake on Saturday Night Live singing, "Bring it on down to Liquor- (Homeless-, Vegan-)Ville!"

She looks good in black!

Sorry about the craptastic photos. 

Looking at her now, I think a great conversion (or a Kendra Mk 2) would be to lose the belly shirt and fatigues/cargo pants and boots in favor of more 'business' slacks and sensible shoes.  Dressed like this, she'd make a pretty good looking police detective about to rush in through a kicked-in door....

She'd be a great 'Falling Skies' type alien hunter/partisan.

She's lovely!
When I first saw her on FB awhile back, I never made the SP connection.

I suggested "Ajax" on FB, so I'll suggest it here too!

Any Lone Ranger fans out there will appreciate this story.  I used to watch it as a kid.  Jay Thomas can tell a funny story...

Very Elfquesty!  That's a good thing, as I've been reading these with my son recently. 

I love it, and I hope there are more where she came from!  The stealthy pose, the bandanna, barefeet...  WIN!

I only really buy them for myself....  I did however get a bunch of the mystic warrior kids to represent my 2 sons and their 6 cousins (3 girls and 3 boys).  The Mystic Warrior Cousins are in process (a long process, as I've got painter's block on them) to be given as gifts to their dads, who are my cousins. 
One day, I hope to get them finished....

Stellar painting, Dwartist, but I do agree with Ben, the paint scheme is very disjointed. 
I'm reminded of the Clone War era Star Wars stormtrooper that tried to bushwhack yoda in the Battle for Kashyykk in Episode 3...

(Although I admit the camo scheme does work....)

Maybe it's the solid armored plates and the camo pattern trousers that's so jarring?  Regardless, your brushwork is to die for....

Ah, the bennies of 'liking' something on Facebook:

or, if you can't view due to geographical limitations (thanks to a friendly Frother), you can find them here:

A prequel of sorts "Torn Apart", the story of the 'bicycle lady' zombie from Series 1 episode 1.  The Youtube link might be a bit better, just because you don't have the annoying Pizza Hut commercial before each installment.

Those big helmets make me crazy (especially in the case of Kendra, how it is going to catch and jostle against her shoulder pads as she moves around and fights), but these guys look great. 
These are some serious additions to a monster squad of Alien hunters!

Just re-watched the first episode on the blu-ray set (Direct TV here in the US doesn't broadcast AMC in HD   :tantrum: ), and I'm still blown away.

2nd series is set to air this fall (in the US, I'm sure about the same time for ROW)

Seems a guy makes a rolling stop at a  stop sign, and gets pulled over by a local deputy sheriff. 
Driver hands the deputy his driver's license, insurance verification, plus his concealed carry permit.
"Okay, Mr. Green," the deputy says, "I see your CCW permit.  Are you
carrying today?"
"Yes, I am."
"Well then, better tell me what you got."
Green says, "Well, I got a .357 magnum revolver in my inside coat pocket.
There's a 9mm semi-auto in the glove box.  And, I've got a .22 magnum
derringer in my right boot."
"Okay," the deputy says.  "Anything else?"
"Yeah, back in the trunk, there's an AR15 and a shotgun.  That's about it."
"Mr. Green, are you on your way to or from a gun range...?"
"Well then, what are you afraid of....?"
"Not a damned thing...."

Libertee's Miscellaneous Musings II / Re: things that really p** you off
« on: September 08, 2010, 03:53:29 PM »

change of direction................something that really mega pi**es me off is not being credited for something/ taken for granted.

Well-behaved/well-mannered children are the result of amongst other things
1) years of structure and nurturing
2) years of boundaries/discipline/routines
3) considerate parents who put their childrens needs ahead of their own in an effort to produce valuable socialised members of society who feel comfortable in new situations, who know how to behave and be respectful, realise the value of education for their future and make their parents proud.
4) Dont give in to their every demand for every new material possession but instead let them earn things so they know the value of money and hard work
5) Be responsible for showing the child direction/available paths and helping them decide which way to them controlled choices not just letting them do whatever they want.
6) Sometimes being the 'bad guy'...not everything in life will always go their way ( tears, manipulation and tantrums arent good!)

What really annoys me is being told for years that i am too strict, too disciplined, too 'traditional' in my values...that they shouldnt be aware of the consequences of their behaviour, that they should be allowed to do whatever they want whenever they want to do it and let them find their own way in life ...going to bed when they want, eating what they want etc.......and then in the next breath them telling the child how wonderful they are to be around because of their good manners and how everyone they meet tells them what a delight the child is.   How the hell do they think the child got like that? ... blooming hard work and sacrifice on our part is how they got like that but all we get is moaned at and undermined at every turn because they dont agree with how we raise them.

You cant make an omelette without breaking eggs and you cant raise responsible children without setting routines and boundaries.  A bit of acknowledgement might be nice as the kids didnt get that way on their own.  By all means tell the kid how wonderful they are but remember who made them that way in the first place.

What a collection you have going there!  You're improving with every figure (from very good to great)!  Kitty Chesire is my fave, but I really like the otherworldly flame effects on Nuklo and Bane.

Suggestions (HF) / Re: Which of the older ranges to work on first?
« on: January 28, 2010, 02:19:48 PM »
I voted Sleiti!

Ieuan is the only model in the range, and he's so lonely. 

I think the range has potential!  I remember awhile back we had a thread going regarding background/mini ideas that involved a lot of symbiotic bio-weaponry and not-Doctor Octopus type of leg harnesses....
