WIP - The Monk

He's not much to look at yet... I'm trying for a look on the boiler like it's painted white but rusting through.

Meow Mix

Chutney and Mango
7 mm

All done! The sculpts are not great likenesses but they'll do. The sunflower head is sculpted from putty, the stalk and leaves are wire and bag ties. I really enjoyed this project, though painting mini-Mango made me kind of melancholy...

Trade deficit

My two or three readers may have noticed it's been weeks since I posted... well not much painting is getting done, I'm sorry to say. It's just a mental state of un-creativity, and probably laziness. Very annoying and utterly my fault. Of course in the meantime, more unpainted metal has arrived:

80's-vintage Space Marines from eBay - a real find. Cast in 100% pure LEAD, they sure don't make em out of that anymore.

Prizes from the Pirates contest... more pirates! (and, fortunately, a $20 gift certificate to buy non-pirates.)

A winner!

Well, I'm pleased to say my figure "Esmeralda the Green Velvet Pirate" took first prize in the "Wenches" category in the Exodus Road Hobbies Pirates painting contest!

32 mm

I'm really happy with how this turned out, especially the face, velvet effect, and metals. All the contest entries are posted here.

Chutney and Mango
7 mm

A little tribute to two lovely cats, one of whom has recently passed on. We miss you, Mango :(

Figures are from Mega Miniatures. I haven't decided what to put on the base yet, perhaps some plants and grass.
