  1. Kans Color Scheme

    I started my "colorful" kan by blocking in the major colors so I could get a feel for how it'll work. I've primed this one white since I'm not metalizing the whole thing. The colors are primer white, Deneb Stone, Mechrite Re and Chaos Black. Yes, I'm working primarily in GW/Citadel colors due to availablity in my area.I like using the Foundation Paints for basing certain colors. I'm experiementing with the Deneb Stone as a base color for the areas I want in Khaki. I laso love using the ...
  2. Killer Kans WIP - Start

    I recently started work on a squad of Killer Kans to fill out a couple hundred points for my tournament army. About a year ago I assembled/painted three Ork Dreadnoughts but did so in a bit of a rush. Simple black with metallic drybrushing, a standard 5 or maybe a 5.5 here on CMON. Now that my skills are a bit better I want to take some time with these guys and do something special.

    Firstly, I want each to be somewhat different. I'm not into modifying these guys much so the paintjob ...
  3. Finally Finished 2 Boxes of Stormboyz

    What good is a blog if you don't update it?!

    I've finished up a big squad of 16 Stormboyz (whew!). This is the first time I've worked with composite models (plastic/metal) and my, what a pain! I thought the bond between metal parts was fragile, but it seems looking at a plastic/metal bond is as good as dropping from a second story window. Many times I had to re-glue an arm during the painting process.

    I also found out that the superglue accelerant I use will melt plastics ...

  5. A Small Milestone

    <p>I actually fit into my &quot;skinny jeans&quot; today.&nbsp; Only a bit smaller than the normal ones because I shrank them at one point but they were uncomfortable to wear before and now they aren't.&nbsp; </p><p>I join the gym Saturday after I get paid on a deal thru' work.&nbsp; No down payment and only 29.95 a month for as much work out as I want including limited use of a trainer if I want.&nbsp; We'll see how it goes.&nbsp; </p><p>I'm ...
  6. So far so good but I hate weekends

    <p>Ok, so I'm doing okay so far.&nbsp; I'm starting slow, mostly because I have to wait till my paycheck before I can join the gym.&nbsp; I've cut soda out completely, taken up eating mostly salads (little or no dressing as I'm not a realy fan of it) with grilled meat in them, and I'm having my 1st Smirnoff Green Apple Ice in a week (not that I really drink much, but 1 after work on a really bad day is nice sometimes).&nbsp; </p><p>I've gotten so I can walk around the ...
  7. Foolishness

    <p>How many of you are insecure abut the way you look?&nbsp; Despite the picture I posted in the PYP thread this week I'm very insecure about my appearance.&nbsp; That picture was takedmore than 25 years ago and all the promise of too much weight has been fulfilled over the years.&nbsp; That's why I've never posted a picture of what I look like now.&nbsp; I swear the picture in your heads is better than the truth.</p><p>How many of you feel the same way?&nbsp; ...
  8. Dungeons and Ducks

    I've been trying to use a few ideas for a one shot scenario for a local con; my duck minis, my newly purchased townhouses and my Matsui rubber duck.  Nicknamed Dungeons & Ducks the scenario will focus on human and halfling sized duck people defending their town from the Duck Dragon of the Yankees!
  9. Be it ever so humble

    There is no place like a pre-painted home whose roof can come off for gaming.  Or something like that.  While I was at Gen Con this year, I passed by this booth of pre painted buildings for all sorts of genres.  Their roofs can come off.  Their second floors can come off.  They are sturdy and deigned for gaming.  I thought about buying one, but bought the whole set, plus an outhouse and a boat.  It’s not that I’m doing a lot of gaming lately, although ...
  10. updated bug

    Updated pictures of the zoanthrop. After my wife brought the camera  back from China most of the setingsa were messed up (or shall we say adjusted to suite the purpose of my wife rather then mine ))Anyway after coaxing this camera for couple of hours I think I restored everything to pre-China level. So here is the picture of my updated zoanthrop. Posibbly I am deluding myself but it seems to be better then what I took before
