  1. I can give you my super duper excellent chili recipe, with special secret ingredients, but I don't really measure or use 'recipes'. If you're cool with a little 'feel your way through' cooking style, I can share it.
  2. I am in the same boat. I use Sling to watch live TV. Don't do it too often, mostly for sports. But, with Fox gone, I can't watch my lovable Lions. Hmmmmm…...maybe that's a good thing.
  3. Okay @Zoxe. I just found out that when we decided to make wooden dice, our foreman at the time purchased an airbrush for finishing them. Our normal spray gun worked better, he was supposed to return the smaller one but didn't, yada yada....we still have it and I am taking it home to use for minis. It is a Paasche TG Talon and looks like it has pretty good reviews. I have ordered the compressor from amazon that you linked on your blog and I will be off and running in the airbrush world. I plan on watching youtube all weekend, reading your blog again, and checking out other tutorials. Any other thing I should be looking into? Also, ventilation. Any thoughts or resources for that? Thanks in advance.
  4. You have more of our stuff than I do! Fantastic collection!
  5. Yeah, I am lucky to have a dedicated space that is always read for painting. A lot of days, I'll just walk in, put on one coat and go back to doing whatever else I was doing. Makes it a lot easier.
  6. Yeah, it is pretty big. Its a lot of grass to cut but I do love the space.
  7. Okay, finished a bunch of things over the weekend that were in process for a bit. 2 minis from the L5R mini crate, 1 Hordes mini, 1 from the Rising Sun board game, and one Arena Rex model. Pretty pleased.
  8. Yay! They look great! Thanks for your patience. Really, using this thread as a timeline, you've only had to wait 81 pages.
  9. Yes, practice is everything. I always told my students, "I don't believe in talent, only work."
  10. Really nice skin tone on this. In the words of one of my figure painting profs from art school, it is very "fleshy flesh".
  11. Yay! I saw those in finishing earlier this week! They look great!
  12. Hope he has a big floor jack in his apartment! 😉
  13. So pumped for this! The cover looks great!
  14. No bother. Sorry I didn't see this earlier. You can add as many magnets as you would like on the back. There really isn't any limitations. The pull force is roughly 3.3lbs per magnet per the manufacturer. The outer edge is doable but some of them can be organically cut. We could leave them flat if you wanted to add magnets to them. No, the rods are not magnetized enough to hold objects. Hope that helps!
  15. Just wait. My memory sucks. I would probably just forget everything we talked about. 😛
  16. Hey Wilki, thanks for the questions. I am always happy to discuss anything you may want to know. The magnets are a quarter inch in diameter. The negative face always goes into the screen. Positive faces out. The magnets are 4" apart horizontally and 5" apart vertically. We could easily leave the rods longer if you'd like. We make them shorter so they work on every sculpt but it is easy to leave a bit longer. They are 5/8ths in size. Yes, we will do a custom 4 panel sculpt. The dice tower idea is interesting. I would have to discuss more of what you wanted in detail before agreeing to it but I am sure we could work something out. Yes, we have done that level of customization on a lot of things before. Hope that helps.
  17. Thanks. I painted a bright off white base and followed up with only washes. Wanted a sickly feel. I used some technical rusting paint on the metal. I thought it offered a nice contrast to the fleshy skin. Pleased with all of it, especially since it was a lot of experimentation. One thing my MFA taught me, do not be afraid to experiment.
  18. That is so cool. Congrats. You are inspiring me to paint more and, maybe, enter a contest or two....maybe....someday. Congrats to Mrs. Zoxe as well. You are a power painting couple! I did a little painting last night as well. Finished up my mole man for Monsterpacolypse. Had a lot of fun with him.
