  1. For once it wasn't too bad

    <p>So, in case you read by last blog, the scheduling worked.&nbsp; We only had 1 small issue with the computer and I won that one.&nbsp; In fact, it was probably the best weekend I've had in a while.&nbsp; Still not what I'd like it to be but comfortable at least.&nbsp; </p><p>Wen's was great.&nbsp; I didn't get as much painting done as I wanted but I made a good start on a couple of things.&nbsp; Wen is always a blast to be around and we brainstormed on ...

  2. Remembrance Day

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to take a quick timeout from the mini painting thing and say a few quick words.Today we remember those who fought for us over the years. Regardless of political preferences, conflicting viewpoints or anything of the sort, we can't forget the thousands of people who have served and continue to serve in the armed forces.Thank you to everyone who has risked their lives to defend something they believe in, I really do appreciate the security that we have here in Canada. God ...
  3. GW closes stores in New York

    Well, we saw it coming but still it is sad. We were fortunate to have 4! stores in New York. The first one was closed about a month ago. Another one, on Upper East side will have their last day on November 18th. They will be holding farewell event there on that day, so I think those who live in NYC and play the game should visit, I am sure that they make it worth your while . As for my store (Austin street) we don't know yet when they close it but the sign that this property is available for ...

  5. Blue as a Dutch Boys Pants... Nob WIP

    I finished up the wires and control box and moved on to the pants. I guess I don't paint as fast (or as well) as some bloggers but I'm working on it I've come to realize that large, open surfaces area my achilles heel right now. I don't seem to have the right dilution for smooth transistions on big sections, such as this guys blue pants. I choose to paint them blue, rather than the brown of the rest of the army, figuring they want to fool da enemy into thinking they were just another piece of ...
  6. lead slinging ladies

    It has been a bit sporadic this week. I quit smoking the other day, and all though it has gone much better than I thought it might, it did throw off my painting concentration a bit for the first couple days. Anyway, catching back up with the rest of the gun-street-girls:

    I'm still not sure what color do Ms. Bodysuit there. . . I've got another project that is going to be a lot of black leather, so I'd prefer to do something else here... Black or red are probably the standards when it ...
  7. Who says the government never does anything good...

    Heh just got another letter in the mail from the City of Edmonton (my summer employers). Apparently they did a vacation pay correction to the sum of $600 on Tuesday. They keep paying me long after I quit, how nice of them! Between the government's generosity and the $90 I got back selling Rhinos out of my Battle Company box, I've had the entire thing paid for (and then some). Not a bad break at all...That also brings the grand total of income tax for the year officially above $3000, and since I'm ...
  8. Blood Ravens Color Recipes

    I've been asked what colors I used on my Captain, so I guess this is the best place to post Nice and public so everyone can see it. Here's the newest shot, with a bit more work done. Mostly on the chest and shield.The armor was done with P3 Sanguine Base, shaded with a wash or two of my Scorched Brown/Black mixture. I then hilighted with Scab Red, Red Gore, then Red Gore with a bit of Fiery Orange in it. All hilights were feathered to keep it smooth without having to do a ton of mixing.The ...
  9. Details, Details, Details. Stormboy Nob WIP

    I started the body details last night. Leather straps and the jump pack controls were all I got done, almost. I didn't want just a drybrush metal over black to define the box and controls, I wanted something that would stick out a bit. I did a "black" box look so had to highlight it some with greys to bring out the details - I think it worked. I also wanted reds and yellows for the smaller parts, industrial warning colors. I think I struck the right balance in colors here. Choosing yellow ...
