  2. Village Attacks: mob #2 - woman X 8
  3. Weekend status update. Crossed off means it's done! I'll need to adjust the colors on the engine nacelles a bit with the airbrush (blue ink); I want the stripes to have a darker background to pop against. Figure out what accent panels should be orange or white, paint accordingly; this will probably be minimal. Add stripes Paint and wash the engines. Basecoat the gun barrels and other doodads Dry brush silver all over Pick out silver bits (launchers, engines) Final weathering and shadowing pass Engine glows Several hours invested this weekend. Taking tonight off. I feel really good about where I'm at. The detailing pass to paint the orange/white accent panels is one of the most time consuming steps. Oddly, I don't find it as tedious as other things because it's a very creative process. I sat down on Saturday and 3 hours just evaporated. I will tinker with these through the week, then have the weekend to wrap it all up. PS: Already thinking about next projects. Super stoked to have all this bench space back after having little gray ships everywhere for the past year. I have things for GenCon that I want to kick off, and Reapercon right after, plus a big backlog of Shadows of Brimstone to turn the crank on.
  4. Last week
  5. Barb....so sorry. I've been swamped at work. Been meaning to get with you on this. So what you do is go to the game page on BGG...I assume you have an account, if not you will need one to sell. Do the following in order once you go to the game page: 1. Scroll down about half ways. Look at where it says Buy A Copy...you will see ebay links and Amazon but right under that is the marketplace for BGG sellers 2. Under 3 listings that appear there you will see a price history button. Check that out to gauge the market. 3. One you do that...sell a copy...click to sell...make sure to include the shipping costs in the listing as well as the condition. Hope that helps! Any more questions just ask!
  6. Thanks! Taping the Frigates for stripes wasn't too bad and was honestly easier than the Cruisers because it was just the one central hull w/o the gap in between. They were small but not so tiny that they weren't manageable. There were 8 Frigates (I think) total, and 6 of the 8 just happened naturally. The only other tricky part was making sure the tape angles were the same from hull to hull, but I could key off of hull details. I worked in batches of 2 or 4 - the tape would start to lift off after a few minutes and I wanted to avoid runs, but in hindsight that also helped my sanity. There was one Frigate configuration (2 ships in my Fleet) with a lot of launchers (tiny bumps) that I tried to tape a couple of times and just threw my hands in the air when the tape wouldn't stick down reliable. I decided no stripes on them and opted to tape off the central hull and give the Bridge a highlight in the same color as the stripes. I liked it so well (and it was so easy) that I did it to the rest of the Frigates. I'm excited for the Capships because the engines will actually show while looking at the ship from above and I think the silver and weathering/soot will make some good contrast with the gray/blue hulls. All my tedious labor on the cruisers are basically hidden by the hull geometry - and the extra overhang made the engines less fun to paint (had to be a lot more careful).
  7. Those look cool. The little ones would drive me crazy trying to tape things. Just like Goldilocks, the middle one looks just right.
  8. I'm not sure how it works yet. This is the game we are going to play after Massive Darkness gets finished. I'm trying to get the painting done before we start playing. Fingers crossed. I've realized that I do like painting rocks. I think it's because they start looking terrible, then they start looking really good, then you try to tweak them a little, and then you feel you've ruined them, then you try to fix them (repeatedly), and then suddenly you really like how they turned out.

  10. Hard to see with the background clutter, but here's a shot showing the relative scales of these ships. Frigate far left was done months ago, a little smaller than a matchbox car. Cruiser center was finished last night. Battleship (right) is bigger than my cell phone. She was basecoated and given a quick fade months ago, and a thinned coat of reaper black wash was put on tonight to help with panel lines (in this shot the wash was still wet, it'll dull a bit as it dries). Tomorrow the fun will start. General plan for the capships: I'll need to adjust the colors on the engine nacelles a bit with the airbrush (blue ink); I want the stripes to have a darker background to pop against. Figure out what accent panels should be orange or white, paint accordingly; this will probably be minimal. Add stripes Paint and wash the engines. Basecoat the gun barrels and other doodads Dry brush silver all over Pick out silver bits (launchers, engines) Final weathering and shadowing pass Engine glows Sounds like a lot, but for a set of 3 ships it's really not that scary. Two of the hulls are almost identical, and the third is actually a Battlecruiser, sized in between the Cruiser and Battleship and a lot simpler in geometry.
  11. Glad, @Serge Darveau, you got your coins. I would have been upset not getting mine.
  12. That looks hilarious. Does the giant killer ball roll down the hallway? Or does it just drop in from the ceiling? PS: Love the how the clouds/smoke looks. It looks like candy; I'd eat it.
  13. Another trap. I'm calling it Indie. Varnish is still marginally wet...
  14. @RomyCat, Looky here! Future KS for the same guys that came up with the dog minis... p.s. The ball of yarn CRACKS ME UP.
  15. The Dragon mini's conceptor give me more minis 'cause he loves the way I use it. Only paid the shipping. May be use 10 dragons on the board and 3 for the final quest to the Evil King.
  16. Which Dracolich? The Macassar? Yeah - that's definitely a beauty.
  17. Great work. These look fantastic. Love the weathering. It's just enough.
  18. Out of reactions @Zoxe, but those look great!
  19. Lolz, my husband saw the dracolich and asked the same thing. We don’t need 3 screens, but damn it’s a beauty.
