Really nice paintwork :)

...the paving looks somehow odd to me... as if it were absolutely flat. Is this a print?
No.  It's embossed plasticard.  Model railway people use it.

We do indeed.  It does looks slightly more flat when in a recessed base like this, but I think it looks great on this figure!

I agree wit beefcake.  The extra effort on those bases really makes your figures stand out.

Looking very nice :)

Are you sure it's not a Watcher in the Dark, though ;)

Remembering that the Forum of Doom exists and I can remember my password, after a very long time away!  :boing:

Excellent conversion! :) Not sure I'd thought of that myself, but looks very effective without too much detail added.

A 5 metre base! :)  That should meet all my model railway needs, as well! ;)

I was thinking more like Castor oil, but I guess Syrup of Figs sounds nicer :)

I guess we do. Personally I've been putting a lot of thought into Librarian Amazons in grass skirts and glasses of late, but maybe it is better that I don't expand on that in this forum! ;)

I think think the Amazon concept has been taken in many different directions - Greek being the starting point, but you find the concept in many different places now, from Wonder Woman and Xena to female tribes in the Amazon Basin, through Fantasy, Sci-Fi and near Historical and everything in between.

In a sense, it has a lot of characteristcs of a real currency, just like other virtualised commodities, such as the hollywood index thing created by Max Keiser, with the benefit of anonymity.  This is why it is good for the types of people listed above.

However, the trust-gap - which is what you highlight, beefcake - is not as strong for a 'real' currency as they are (almost) always backed by a soverign state that most people believe won't let their currency really go haywire as they don't need the social unrest it would cause.  However, this trust gap does still exist for real currencies, to the extent you trust that a state will take measures to stabilise their currency, i.e., the Zimbabwe Dollar was far, far more volatile than the US Dollar - at least until it was abandoned.

This trust-gap is obviously less of an issue for criminal types, as all of their illegal assets are subject to a higher risk of loss (seizure by the state, theft by other criminals and regular business risk) than are the assets of your regular law-abiding citizen, anyway.

So, for all of these reasons, I agree with you beefcake - it all seems a bit scammy to me, too. But its not a single-person scamming you - unless it is the anonymous guy behind inveting the whole system! :)

The government can neither confirm of deny Inso's involvement in Special Forces as they never comment on Special Forces organsiation or operations.

And of course, he wouldn't be able to tell us about it anyway, would he? :)

I could tell you had had a thought in there - it just needed teasing out ... :D

Very nice :)  I wouldn't have noticed the head and hand swap on the mahout, if I hadn't read your blog as well.

I really should read up more stuff about the AoC.

What about a range of Amazons?

What about them?  Did they do something naughty?  :jawdrop:

Any more detail on this, Klingsor?  What do you think HF Amazons should look like? Bodybuilders? Greek Style? Near-Future Amazons? Rainforest native Amazons? Plate armoured warrior women? Xena Warrior Princess? Girls with Guns? Librarian Amazons in grass skirts and glasses? (Did I say that out loud? No? OK, then.)

I think this chap is awesome.  Echo snailracer's comments about Dreadball - would be great conversion for that game, without the gun.

Just superb, Gi6ers :)

However, your claim of only 4 hours work only adds to the evidence that you're heading down the path of a unit painter! ;)

Very nice :)

As a spectacle wearer, I approve of the excess of eyewear on this miniature!

Not at all like Slugterra, then? :D

Sadly not! (WTF is that, a guy firing Pokemon out of guns?)

Actually, that is a very accurate description.  Except its a bit more sci-fi cowboy - they go about on four legged robot steeds in an odd kind of pose and they have some kind of quest.  I have to say I lost interest before I could be bothered to find out what the quest is, but 7yo kids seem to love it! Even my girls, which surprised me!

Yeah. Just don't tell those big mining corporations, or they'll be wanting to claim-jump my garage! ;)

Real life has a habit of getting in the way...... :lol:

But if it wasn't for that, we'd none of us have those unpainted lead mountains still awaiting attention...

What do you mean 'mountain', singular?  I have a whole range of lead mountains awaiting attention ... :)
