    For Table Top Game day, I entered this mini painting contest at a local gaming store. Had several weeks to work on it. Not bad for an amateur... & out of a group of 25 entries... Thanks to the blessings of Odin... he placed 4th!

    Experimental Bordeaux finish on African Mahogany, and the ziricote XL sheath: I am in love with this finish on the mahogany. It’s stunning. It has an iridescent quality in person that is fantastic. Back side to show you how it looks on unsculpted surface: It’s always fun to see how the woodgrain lines up. It looks like the sheath pieces fit together like so:

    So, got more of the set done today. Almost finished. Thought I would share some pics. Plus, some of the custom product we are making for the palyers is ready as well. Mine is the Pink Heart sentinel. The DM Screen is not the one we will be using. That one will have a Beholder on it!

    IT IS TIME!!! I have been waiting a while to share all of my gorgeous Dog Might wood bits, and today my Valhalla Screen and Component Collectors arrived so here they are in all my poorly framed glory. We have 4 Benge Component Collectors, a Benge Valhalla Screen, 2 Canarywood and 2 Padauk Hero Sleeves and a Dark Walnut adventure case. I can't wait to actually use them but I had to bust out some components from my favourite game to show them off. I am starting running a DnD adventure properly for the first time in a few weeks time so Ill add a picture of the screen in action then! Much love and respect to all here and the DMG team!

    So I sponsor a Sci-Fi club at the high school where I work and today was our annual club fair. We had a small attraction going where if you rolled a nat 20 you didn’t have to pay your dues. And I got to show off some Dog Might goodness.

    I too have had the painting bug recently. Here are some shots of my latest ones from the Cthulhu Wars game. Really cool minis to paint. Plus they are pretty big, which helps my sawdust filled eyes. The yellow one is still a WIP.

    I got my new guitar neck (bocote fingerboard with a canarywood base) and got it all installed. Figured i would post the finished result. Down the road, i intend to do the body in either canary or bocote. But that will be a little while.

    Finally got a chance to get some pics of my Coco. The Chechen is beautiful, and the Redheart sammich top looks amazing too. This was definitely worth the wait!

    Probe Droids are done! As I mentioned above, I started these guys many moons ago, and my painting methods have changed quite a bit in the past year. I decided to let little flaws go - mold lines, injection gates, gaps, and other model prep issues that I'd fix today were left "as is" and I decided to see what I could do quickly. I'm happiest with the grimy, dirty, oily robot arms, least happiest with the details on the central globe. There's a lot more that I could have done - gem-style lenses, better battle damage, picking out rivets and vents, etc. and a lot of overall cleanup. But ... it's time for brushes down and onto the next.

    So my spalted tamarind came in and while I was admiring it I thought I’d take some pictures of the koa too. The photos don’t do koa justice it’s even prettier in person. Though I was surprised to notice they had a little bit of a size difference! Still they are gorgeous and I love them both.

    We fared much better on our next run through of the same dungeon. The second scenario allowed me to use a lot of my cool terrain I had been working on.

    I've previously posted these but couldn't resist since they're finally getting some time on the table. DMG kingdom death gear grid prototypes working in tandem with CoCos. Magnets are holding these together for a 1 player, 2 character dashboard.

    @tgpumpkin, This is for you! My Sentinels and Sheaths. As you can see, I don't have 20 of them, but what I do have are pretty spectacular. @Konas and DMG are da bomb! My favorite is hard to pick, but it's between the Ziricote XL Sheath, the aluminum inlay Sheath, and the BoRo Sentinel. Note: @Thomas Browne still may have some resentments over the BoCo and BoRo sentinels and Ziricote sheath, given I beat him to them by about 14 seconds combined. I don't know if this makes me a bad person, but I still don't feel bad about that.

    Taking a short break from dropfleet (the panel lines are giving me a great case if the mehs) to have some fun with a the Brimstone Sand Kraken that I bought 2 or 3 Gencons ago but never got around to assembling. Will be a played model and not a competition model so I am going super fast on him. Assembled, with a 28mm figure for size ref. Initial green airbrushing. Later airbrushing would add the green highlights and orange mane. Current status. Working the eyeballs up to pure white before I paint the details. Played with some hand highlights in bright green around the eye plates. I'll do likewise on the orange and figure out something for the tentacles. Rocks will get repainted brown.

    Ok so this is my personal opinion, but having received so many wonderful wooden gaming products from Dog Might Games, I have fallen in love with chechen, a very beautiful wood. It has become my favorite wood so far that they have put up for sell and that is saying something because they have a lot of beauties in their shop. ? The beauty in this wood lies in that is it chatoyant which means when the light hits it, it exhibits beautiful changing luster throughout the wood. It also has a strong golden blonde and reddish brown tone, highlighted with other dark streaks. Simply put, its pretty stunning. Below are some youtube links I put up that show off chatoyancy in the wood. As well as some pictures. However chechen, will always look way better in person than in pictures due the chatoyancy it exhibits in lighting! Don't forget that when you think about which wood to pick! Pick chechen! Please feel free to add any wonderful DMG pictures of chechen that you might have! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSJV8LVkleQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-0v46fRQgo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0HgIwch1XQ

    So the deck box just got here! Super gorgeous, but It feels very large in my tiny hands. So I suppose I can continue with my plan to give it as a Christmas gift(Thank you again dog might for having some fairly last minute options for something so nice.). I love how one section has the two woods almost matching in color.

    I have recently returned from a nice family vacation to Boston and New Hampshire, but while I was on vacay, our BGG group purchase of Snowdonia arrived to the guy who spearheaded the whole thing. This is what he received...

    Reapercon contest entry. Started assembly about 10d ago, airbrushed basecoats last Friday and hand detailing on Sunday. I should have kept track of my time, there's a reason I've been a lot quieter on the forums. First pic is the nekkid model. Still a WIP and under crappy desk lights. Need to fix some highlights, do another pass on the blades, adjust lighting with the airbrush and wash and detail the base.

    I'm proud to say that the color shift scorpion won first place for Best Monster in the Shadows of Brimstone painting competition at Gencon. I was greatly humbled by the response to the figure. Picture below is in the case at the show floor, followed by a couple of glamour shots in my light box. I painted a pair of them, but the category is for best single figure, so I picked the one I liked better for the entry (the one with the ram horn skull). Middle of the weekend, I was at the booth buying stuff, and noticed a guy with the scorpion kit box in his hand. He brought his wife to the case, pointed at the box, then my figure, and back again and gestured excitedly. She smiled and nodded, he pulled out a phone and took several pictures of my figure. That one exchange was better than winning anything. My other entry was greatly enjoyed by the people I talked with, but rightfully didn't place. There were some wonderful entries in the diorama category. I painted up two sets of bad guys in the Ghostbusters vs. Slimer theme. The backdrop was out of a hot wheels set that I repainted. The little Ghostbusters shoulder patches were free hand, my first real attempt at something like that. Had a ton of fun, will put the Ghostbusters on the gaming table proudly.

    I got my 3d printer last night and got it all put together and running. This is the first test print (which was instantly claimed by my 3 year old when he got up this morning)

    So this weekend we drove out into the foothills looking for cool pictures I can sell. I saw this really cool shot of the riverbend (picture #1), so we stopped the car and walked back to the spot. I was getting the camera ready as I walked and accidentally hit the button, taking a picture of who knew what. I figured I would delete it later. I got home and uploaded the pictures, forgetting about the oopsie. Turns out that "oopsie" was a cool shot of the hills with a few fair weather cumulus in a blue sky. Also turned out to be straight by some sheer luck. Picture #2 is my accidental picture.

    And.....we are back. Worked a half day yesterday to catch up a bit but didn't have time to jump on here. I have a fuller then normal inbox and know that a couple of you reached out to me there. I will be responding this afternoon. Had an AMAZING GenCon. Potentially the best ever. Big things happening that I cannot discuss yet but hopefully soon. Great to see so many of you there. Apologies to @Zoxe again for not recognizing you upon meeting. My memory is crap. Too much lumberjack juice. Went a little crazy with the purchases this year. One of our biggest hauls ever. The shortlist: Monsterpocalypse, Aristeia, Crystal Clans, lots of minis for Arena Rex, Guild Ball, Hordes, Pathfinder playtest, Vampire V5, L5R beginner box, lots of dice, and a bunch of other stuff. Root the game was a big hit with the crew. So much that I am sure I am forgetting something. Our crew did an amazing job. @Zoe took the lead on the booth this year so I could hobnob with some other businesses and it worked very well. Hats off to her. She has staved off her daily firing for at least one day.

    Now that Santa has come to the house, I can share a couple of things that he brought for Mrs. Zoxe. The Dice Chest was acquired at PAX Unplugged. Mike said it was a one of a kind prototype. (We did some other Christmas shopping there, and yes I made her wait until this morning to play with it. ) The Mythic Sword is in Bolivian Rosewood, and wasn't necessarily intended to match the box but they do go well together. I'm glad the Viking masters got us a piece with some character.

    I did the group buy for Snowdonia on BGG and the guy running the group just notified us today that he's supposed to get his shipment this coming Monday. We had 108 copies ordered in the group, the shipment weighs 1,180 lbs!

    So, I came in this morning to a couple of immediate, hard meetings. Then, found out I had received a very special surprise from a Mr. @tgpumpkin. Incredible. You guys are the best. It really means a lot that anyone would send a gift like that.

    Next Arena Rex figure done! My matt spray seems like it comes out a bit shinier near the end of the bottle though.

    My three-year-old daughter has this one: I will put the acorns in the wrong colored spots and she will giggle and say, “Daddy, you so crazy. That not right!” I don’t know how the actual game is played, but it’s great for initial level indoctrination into love of the hobby. I also have Echinda Shuffle for her, which she calls the Hedgehog Game.

    Finally back in front of a laptop and not just my phone. Has been a crazy week followed by a long weekend out of town. Here are my Yucatan Rosewood Polys. Was one of the initial offerings before the public release. The green inlays aren't for everyone but I love them. First picture is on our bay windowsill in natural light on a sunny day. Second picture is in my photo booth and a little diffused lighting (nothing fancy). As advertised, they are light in the hand, but have a much more pleasing texture compared to boring plastic. We have another D20 that arrived Friday, but I scrammed out the door to make our weekend commitment and only just opened it. It's intended for Mrs. Zoxe, so she needs to see it before I post pics.

    So Mini Box and BoRo Skirmish Box both arrived this week (and no problems with the packaging). The Mini Box is cool, but the Skirmish Box is just amazing, and larger than I thought. So happy I caved in and picked it up. Pictures will come later this week/weekend. I'm now thinking I need another skirmish box though .. ughh.. I really need to slow down after these two though. So probably not going in on the GM System, just the backer sheath because.. well backer sheath!

    No worries, Thomas, this one is all you! DMG has sapped my wallet thoroughly, and I have to let others enjoy some of the beautiful hardware. Plus I’ve got a Rise of Tribes sabretooth Dragon Tray coming down the pike someday; a fellow can only have so many rolling surfaces before his wife starts giving him side-eye.

    Let me take this in an entirely a different direction: In December of 2007, I left a large, high stress office to work at one of the smaller competitors in town where a small group of my former team members had taken root. Best Christmas present I ever gave myself. I wasn't starting at the new office until after the 1st of the year, so as a bonus I actually resigned on the Thursday before Christmas and was technically "unemployed" for the holiday stretch while living on my accrued vacation time that paid out on my last check. On Christmas Eve, we went to my mother inlaw's family gathering for dinner. We don't see the extended family that often, they're generally judgy and unpleasant, and the initial exchanges always consist of the same handful of obligatory generic questions while they figure out what random thing I've done incorrectly so they can educate me. So I lurked and waited, and finally got my chance for some fun. Mother Inlaw: "So, how's work?" Me: (casually) "Oh, I quit last week." ML: "What??" Me: (dead serious) "Yah, I quit." *shrug* "I decided I didn't like it anymore so I'm not going back." ML: "You ... Quit?" Me: "Yup...." (awkward silence) The fact that I'm not joking is starting to register with mother inlaw. She's now looking from me to my wife blinking, her mouth agape - and I can see the gears turning as her gaze finally settles on Mrs. Zoxe. No words are coming out but all of her body language is screaming: I FRIGGIN' KNEW IT AND NOW YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO SUPPORT THIS LAZY JERK.... The silence stretches, and I'm intentionally letting it hang there. So many questions, so few answers. Finally, Mrs. Zoxe backhands me on the shoulder and with an exaggerated eye roll says, "Ok, tell her the rest...." "Oh yah ... I start my new job of the 3rd. Joining my old team a few miles down the road. Same pay, less stress, I'm really looking forward to it."
