    Monthly painting challenge - April

    April model 2 of 3 for me: the second Medical Automaton. Will post total SS painted after the last model this coming week, Franchute. Cheers, all.

    The first of my three April models is done: the adorable medical automaton. I may add a puff of dust spitting off the wheel later; haven't decided---what do you think? I will post the SS total once I have them all posted, Franchute. Nice job on Amina Naidu---I just assembled her tonight and will be using her tomorrow in an escalation league.

    Hello Franchute and others! This month I am going to paint up 2 Medical Automatons and 1 MS&U Steamfitter.

    Monthly Painting Challenge - March

    With 65 minutes to spare, here is my second of the two Rougarou that I pledged for March. The brown dirt is Citadel's Alien Ironearth, but it will be April before it dried and gives that sweet cracked mud look. I really enjoyed painting these models. I tried them out for the first time this week and they are vicious---so may extra attacks when you throw them into the opponent! That is 2 x 8 = 16 SS for March for me, Franchute.

    Monthly Painting Challenge - March

    I have finished the first of the two Rougarou that I pledged for March. I ended up enjoying this more than I expected to, likely because the details are all large enough to make it easy to paint. When I post the second one I will include the total SS, Franchute. I have also figured out how to get good sharp photos of the minis: take them in the afternoon in full sun.

    Hey @Boomstick --- very cool. We have a small group playing every week at least just an hour north of Indy. Let me know if you're interested in coming up. Also know of a couple people in Indy itself.

    My pledge for March 2018 is 2 rougarou. I thought I had posted this already, but now can't find it. Apologies if this is a double post.

    Friday Preview - Devouring Eel

    Sounds fairly far-fetched, but there are critters that do similar things. Some insects in the Heteroptera simultaneously inject digestive fluids and suck up the rapidly dissolving prey tissue.
  9. Hey HoosierSS! We have a bit of a group up here in Laf/W Laf as well. If you ever want to come join in on Tuesdays (and some weekends) at the FLGS, just let me know. BTW: we have a tournament going on this Saturday---going to be a blast. Maybe I can convince a few of the gang to head down there for a game sometime this spring. Cheers.

    Just in case folks are interested in options for resizing. I usually get my photos for posts down to about 150 kb fairly quickly. I use GIMP, which is free and open source. Works like a non-proprietary Photoshop. If interested: Fire up GIMP and open the photo. Image | Scale Image: to reduce the size and dpi: you won't see a difference with most monitors anyway. I scale to 200 by 200 dpi, and 1600 x 1200 size (dpi is really meaningless, it's the number of pixels in the image that matters). Tools | Transformation | Crop: to crop to the mini. File | Export As: to save as a jpg or other format. Just using 'save as' will save it as a GIMP file with all the associated settings. I export a jpg and then close down without saving the gimp. Hope this helps a few people. Cheers.

    Sure thing, H4ml3t ! When I get a chance I will post a photo on my album and let you know. Don't want to fill the forums with non-Wyrd stuff. It is a gang of ten House Goliath gentlemen (and I use that term loosely).

    Well, once I sat down to take the photo of the first model, I figured I may as well stay there and finish up my War Pig. Egad, gremlins are tiny! Don't know how people painting them all the time stay sane. Here is the second of my two pledged beasts for February. Corrupted hound (3 SS) + War pig (9 SS) = 12 SS Just the minimum, but I did also paint up a gang of 10 Necromunda models so couldn't over-do it.

    Thanks for checking in, Franchute! The current status of my two pledged models are: 1 beast done (see photo) and 1 beast almost done (War Pig). I will post the total SS when I post the War Pig image, which I guess will happen in the next few days. Cheers. I know---join lines.
