A little humor to start the day!

[*]Your assassin just wet his pants.
[*]The ancient red dragon you had just been fighting says "Shit! I'm out of here!" and flies away.

Gallery Update, on its way!

So, the new version of the Gallery software includes several highly desireable features, so I'm gonna update the test site and see if I can update the real site without breaking it. Wish me luck!

On the Blogg.

Well, I said I'd never have a blogg, so that is another vow out the window!

Another Workbench!

Okay, I know its been a while. It has been quite a month! And with a handful of miniatures banished to the stripping jar, here's whats up for this week:

[img_assist|nid=268|title=Week of May 28, 2007|desc=|link=popup|align=right|width=400|height=330]

First up, "Beastmaster" from Dark Sword. A really cool sculpt, strangely in its realism, but I thought he's a cool barbarian type, so I'm giving it a try. I'm kind of stuck on the metals, leathers, and furs.

Big experiment in this week's workbench!

The week of May 6, 2007 will be lots of fun painting-wise. Yeah, I'm a big over-extended, but my stripping jar is standing by for the anticipated disasters.

Another day, another Dragon

As Deidre said, the Dragon Crossing was about to occur.

"Come-on, let's go!" said the sneaky little one. Then the magicky one turns us into the wind, and we fly up to the top of the lighthouse. There was an ogre waiting up there for us, so I charge into the beast!

After trading a few blows, the creature turned into a cloud and wafted away, leaving us free to search for the portal to the blue dragon's lair. We found the portal, and a riddle appeared. When we solved the riddle, a door appeared and we stepped through...

The last workbench of April

This week's workbench is a bit mild, except for a couple of challenge paint jobs (not seen here...)

Here we see whats up for next week. First, the Mercenary Wizard is still steadily painting himself, looking pretty good! Next up, I found a great old Citidel barbarian to play my character Ched in a D&D campaign. While I was back in the barbarian mindset, Ghonad the Heresy halfling barbarian screamed out for paint. Also, that old Citidel Norse Shaman is still on the bench. For now.

Week of April 22, 2007

Yes, the Paladin pics are coming!!! Just waiting for the base to dry... In other news, there's two more challenges in progress here.

I'm still working on the Hireling Wizard. Or, he's continuing to paint himself...

I haven't finished that bearskin berserker or the norse shaman, just got a few touches here and there on them.

This week's fun challenges are the Heresy Dwarf Inventor and Hasslefree Amoy. I've had this dwarf assembled and primed for quite a while, so I'm looking forward to painting him finally.
