Joy of Joys - I'm re-painting the front part of Trails cloak (quickly before cooking dinner).

When I got back I found him on the floor CHIPPED!

It's such a waste of time!

Chipped miniatures definitely suck... but they're just a part of the hobby, right?

And better a miniature in progress than one that's finished.

As I mentioned before, I wasn't keen on Skylines Base - so, without further delay - I present - SKYLINE EXTREME!

Image

As you can see, the new base is much more impressive (though still as precariously balanced)!

Image

I have NO IDEA WHY, but the cloak looks more blue in the new picture LoL!

That is a hell of a base - great LOS for snipers! :lol:

Great work D-W. :)

LoL!

Skyline is ALREADY at that disadvantage stuck on top of the bloody Gargoyle!

What I really want is to do another Skyline, but heavily converted to be in a standing pose.

I tried painting Trail very early on, but the colour scheme went completely wrong so I stripped him, rebased and undercoated him - and put him away.

Not the best thing I've ever painted - but at least its another one finished LoL!

I second that, it really looks like he could lose the cape and mask to blend into a crowd at the turn of a corner! Great work!

That's what I was going for, as he reminds me of the Phantom Stranger from DC!

INDEED! A very important consideration for all Heroes!

Thanks for the positive vibe guys!

Just Chillin' with the Family this afternoon - a bit of writing ("Shadows over Pulp City"), watching TV (we just watched Iron Man again, I think my Dads getting a taste for Superhero Movies now).

I'm thinking of trying to do some "quickies" tonight - Dr Mecury, and a couple of Security Bots (maybe do a little more work on Harrier, and start the washes on Mourn).

But like I said, Just Chillin' . . . . .

How about everyone else Hobby Wise?

Not a Lot to Report . . . . .

Not desperately successful Hobby-Wise (more hassles to sort out) - so a quiet night (apart from chatting to HendyBadger about Shadows over Pulp City and Miniatures Painting by Email).

I've ordered (well Linda did LoL) some new Brushes and Puttys - and some new Fenris Bases to try.

A selection of "Tech" Bases for my "Not Blakes 7" Miniatures by Crooked Dice - and some City Streets Bases for Pulp City in general.

Image

I've only really used the Fenris "toppers" before, apart from when creating my own and molding them with Instant Mold - so I'm looking forward to the "change" really.

Image

Hopefully do some bits tomorrow after doing Dads plumbing, ordering our new Cooker, and all the other chores/jobs that need doing - AND sorting out Dads medication/hospital visits for the next few weeks (then hopefully I might get some time to myself).

I really wanted to get cracking on Dr Mercury and the four Security Bots I have, but its not been happening the last few days at all. I hate it when I get no painting/modelling done, I find it really frustrating to be frank!

I"m always free to chat to. I'm at the computer most of the day and can respond fairly fast.
