Post # 600!!!! Teaching an old dog new tricks...
Gee, I was really shocked to see my posts at number 599 right before I went to put this up! I guess that means I am averaging about 100 posts per month. Scary, I know!
What should not be scary is this neat little devil. It is a very fun Werner Klocke sculpt for Reaper.
She is up on CMON right now, so I call on all loyal Wappellians to vote!!
I very rarely get to paint anything like this, so it was a treat. I also took the opportunity to experiment with flow improver, which I had never tried before. I used it on almost every surface, with different types of brushes, paints, even other mediums. There is a whole lot of potential use for it... and not just for freehand. Very cool!
That just goes to show you that you can indeed teach an old dog new tricks! Speaking of which, we have been substitute dog walkers for these two hounds, who we have known since before they had names.
Here is Max:
Max as usual waiting for someone to toss his ball:
And his sister Zoe:
Neither of these dogs had been trained to walk in the disciplined fashion that we walk dogs, so we knew that some teaching would be involved. After just 2 days, they are now pretty well ensconced in the correct way to do things, and they very rarely step out of formation or yank on the leash. Of course, border collies are among the smarter dogs, but other people could do the same thing (if only!)
Blood Bowl Shadowforge Gators
Shadowforge makes some fun blood bowl teams, and here is one of them. It is an Australian company, but I believe that you can purchase theme here on Impact Miniatures site.
They make a fantastic female orc team, complete with coaching staff, as well as a hilarious nun team!
These ladies are painted in Florida Gators colors...
I don't seem to have any individual shots (sorry!), but here are some close ups of the group images...
This coaching staff was from War Gods, and a little touch of green stuff. :-)
Some of my favorite Trueborns: Part One
It's been a long time since I have seen these guys. Every so often it is fun to check out figures that were done using techniques that are very different form the way I work today.
Here are a few big Dark Age Dragyri Trueborns. They are on 50mm bases.
