  1. I got a post card in the mail yesterday.  When something like this happens it really hammers home  how much this type of thing rarely happens anymore.  I hope this post inspires some of you.


    Your front yard is so beautiful!  It makes my blood pressure go down when I walk past it.  Thanks for adding beauty to our neighborhood!

    Very nice work. The shading on Red Ansol's skin is excellent. Don't be afraid to do more of that. Also, isn't 'stupid teens' redundant?

    Probably.  Red got redder than I originally intended, but he's a spoof on Crocodile Dundee, and he was pretty darn tan.

    While I AM very envious of the deck jacket - I had no chance at that.  I was on vacation without internet - so if you didn't get it someone else surely would have.  It's too beautiful a piece to have lasted the 5-7 days it would have taken for me to get home after the drop.  So don't feel guilty about it - really.  I'd rather it went to a home I knew honestly appreciated the beauty of the piece.  But I'll still be envious - and I will keep my order in with @Konas to look for another piece.

    And now I'm 95% sure I don't have the piece you're talking about, because I'm pretty sure I only have one piece of non-Bolivian rosewood (other than dice) - and that was a custom piece, not an in stock piece.

    It was one of you boys.  I don't remember if it was @LuckyIke, @Peter Pickle, @Adam or someone else.  I do know that it wasn't @tgpumpkin.  He wouldn't have gotten to a decision in time.

    Hmm.. ok - I'll check my pieces tonight. 

    No big deal.  I know I had a special custom order in for when @Konas got another burled Rosewood piece of lumber.  We ended up cancelling it as he couldn't find another board after 5 months of looking out for it.  This walnut tray is the 3rd burled black walnut piece I now own.  They are all awesome in their own right.

  5. And now for something completely different.  Monster Slaughter.  5 stupid teenagers go to party in an abandoned cabin in the creepy woods.  The monsters (players), compete for killing them.  "Special Guest Stars" come to the aid of the stupid teenagers.

    I know they're doing an online version of Reapercon but don't know exactly how (or if) the Mini contest would work.  I'll enter it if there's opportunity.

    While there is a best in show and manufacturer's awards, overall Reapercon is set up so that you're only competing against yourself.  Everyone is rated Nothing/Bronze/Silver/Gold.  I was hoping this piece would be a high silver if not Gold level and then place well in the manufacturer's awards (DGS Games -- I took 3rd for them last year for my polar bear cavalry piece).

    I learned a lot in this piece. I really hate painting skintones and whites, and I spent the most time on the tunic and face.  The next 'big' piece I have is a Brimstone boss (he's 6" tall) that has a LOT of tonic on him and expect to reuse a lot of these colors. 

    Your stonework was really good.  I hate doing faces/skins too.

    After weeks away from the bench, I'm starting to paint a bit again - bugs, heat, and humidity have helped entice me to stay indoors!

    This is a piece I'd intended to take Reapercon this year.  He's 99% complete, pending any last minute adjustments after he sits for a few days.  I'm really happy with him, tho he's almost overpowered by the base.


    PS - That's a the base off of my Dog Might mini holder serving as a makeshift plinth for pictures!



    If you didn't win, I'd really liked to have seen mini.
