Ah, you're in the clean theme, aren't you? I don't think I ever implemented auto resize in that one, only in the red-black theme, cause it wasn't getting used much. Lemme take a look.

So I have a bunch of old JoeK minis from back before the original range was scrapped, was wavering on doing one of the barbarians (not-Slaine or not-Deathdealer) but I think I'm gonna go with Servant Prime.

Image

Never read Heiroglyph, the comic he's from, but I really like his look as this kinda mysterious and sinister being. He's pretty straight forward being just all robes so I'll probably crack out my Andrea Miniatures black paint set to see if I can do some decent black robes and if it doesn't work out you won't know anyway cause my photos will flatten any of the shading. :loopy:

Anyone friendly with any of the Brindie peeps, and want to point them in the direction of the PAL thread, so they can enjoy/partipate/cajole etc?

I mentioned it in a recent email to the guys at white dragon, but I haven't had a response to the email.

done, kind of annoyed with how the sculpt quality got in the way of what I had in my head, but at least I got to work out the bases and experiment with snow effects

Thats how I felt about my one forray into Warploque.

Definitely! And well done, my good man. I've still never had the cajones to try some snow bases. I started an old Foundry Thor about a decade ago, that I was always going to do with a snow base . . . maybe if I ever get back to him, I'll stick to that plan. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

it was surprisingly easy (pva + bicarb), but i'm glad it was an experiment on something i wouldn't have been heartbroken about. Could also learn how to do some heavier tufts through it, these are too slight.

Not a fan of the goblin sculpts but you've done a pretty awsome job on them.

Well no idea where this month has gone so I thought I better get started on mine.

Image

No idea what he's supposed to look like in the bit you can see under the robes so just going to go with pitch black shadow. Probably really hard to tell in the photos (and not much easier outside them) but his robes have already had highlights done and just need shading.

This is near enough done, just need a little tidy up of the words on the gun, then varnish and basing finished.

...and done. As always still need to stick some grass on and what-not but he's needs varnished first and February will probably be done by the time the second coat is dry. :D

ImageImage

and an extra head on view because I think he looks particularly sinister, although the bent staff i didn't notice kinda undermines it...
