What I've been doing recently....

So I've been busy. I've moved into my own Apartment. That was tough, but it has been 4-5 months since then and most thing are going well. Still need to learn how to cook more types of food and a couple other things but I've made tons of progress in the short amount of time since I moved out of the Folks House.

But enough about that, what you will want to know is I have time and space to REPAINT MINIATURES!!! While I will not be at GenCon this year, my hope is to save up enough to go in 2017. That does NOT mean I will not have some "Presence" there this year or elsewhere in the DDM Community! That is because I'm working on Prizes for BOTH OF THE DDM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!! Yes, I have been commissioned by a representative from the European DDM Community to provide several Repaints for their Championships! I'm still going to make Repaint care package for the GenCon Champs too. So without further adu, I present work in progress pictures of some of my projects for the summer convention season!

Several of these are very early WiP pics. Their are also a few surprises that have not been shared yet Big smile Hope you will enjoy my work and the Conventions as well.

Hey,
Due to computer trouble, I have been distracted. But I got a bunch of painting done earlier tonight. King Snurre and the Paladin are nearly ready and the crocadile and [REDACTED] will soon be sealed. Also, I have short listed my GenCon options! The most recent D&D Minis set's Displacer Beast, the Newest Chimera, a Half-Orc Paladin and a Mystery Miniature to be revealed later. I should have pictures of the progress posted by about Monday or so.

So, Updates. Been busy over the last couple weeks. First, I had to reinstall my LapTop's OS. That took a while. Then got distracted by a Local Convention, Sci-Fi Valley Con. Enjoyed going to that. Also, Finished the Prize Minis for the European Champs and sent them to the Organizer for it. More progress has been made on the Displacer Beast and the other minis for the North Americal Champs are started. And to top it all off, My FLGS had its 20th Anniversary on Int.Tabletop Day! AND Made a Huge Announcement there that They will be moving into a New, Bigger Location soon!!!! So, I'm hoping that after the move, I might be able to get a monthly or so Paint Day started now that there will be room for it! So yeah stuff happened.

So, progress. The Displacer Beast is done and Sealed. I had to rethink the Chimera and Primer my Back-Up plan, just in case. the other minis are slowly improving but not enough that I want to show them yet. Snig the Axe is getting pretty close to done though and I may be showing him off soon. The Half-Orc Paladin is proving difficult due to the Cloak, mainly. It is too close the rest of the body to paint under it easily, but just far enough away that I cannot ignore the underside since it is easily visable from several common angles! I'm not sure how to remove it without damaging the rest of the mini, either. So I'm deciding on a Medium Sized Back-Up plan too!

Anywho, here are the Pictures of the Displacer Beast!

So, After realizing that there were a limited amount of Recent Medium Minis that I had ideas for, I went with a Back up Plan that was Large sized. With the other Large Back up plan, I'll be sending 3 Large minis and one Small mini to GenCon. The new choices are the Bulette and the Efreet! The Bulette has a cool Leaping from the Earth Beneath vibe to it and the Efreet is on a Flying base and has some cool use of Transparent Plastic, too.

The Bulette is first. Not Done by a long shot, but progress has been made. I had thought about a Lava Base similar to King Snurre, but decided against it in the end. I chose against it due to the following Mini...The Efreet!


Yes I know his Sword is all Wonky but I have a Plan to replace it with a Better Option! Maybe some of you can guess what effect I'm going for on my Efreet?

UPDATE! This project is coming along well. The Bulette is finished and sealed! I'll have pictures later today or tomorrow. Snig the Axe is nearly done. Planning on finishing up the Efreet tomorrow or Thursday at my FLGS. Hoping to send it to someone who is going to GenCon on Monday at the latest.

So I promised Pictures and here they are...

Snig the Axe is nearly done. A few finishing touches and I can seal him.

So, I went to my FLGS, Gatehouse Games, yesterday to have a day to paint without distractions and am I glad I did! The Owner, Tim Gatehouse, was very helpful with this mini in particular. Tim's knowledge of various unusual types of Paint was very useful. I did not know much about "Technical" Paints apart from Crackle types. He was able to help me with some Earth/Dirt Technical Paint that is made with a bit of Grit in it for use with ground type bases, primarily. We used it to take some of the Smooveness on this minis base and Flying dirt and make it more believable. Also, got a good tip from him to try using some Verdigris on the Shell parts too. All done now with him. Sealed and everything!

So, this project is DONE!!! Almost:(

Snig the Axe is looking really AWESOME!

The Efreet is nearly done. Only a couple small touch ups left. Due to the lack of time left for this project to get done by, I had to abandon the replacement of the Sword and just try to fix it as best I could. I am glad the paint job came out as well as it did, though.

Thanks Tried:)I hope you get to be able to see them in person. I haven't been able to keep up with who is going to be at GenCon this year, sadly. I'm hoping to try to save enough to take a Low Budget trip next year, assuming Trump doesn't win and make the planet into a Nuclear wasteland by then:P Anywho, James will be getting them sent from me and will deliver them to the con. So have fun and stuff your faces with the tasty foods.
