Works in Progress

Finally: some WIP shots.

Shadowy figures...

More pictures on flickr. I like this set because it was taken by Christina, who knows a lot about photography but almost nothing about miniatures, which is a nice change of pace.

With only a week and a half until the tournament, and my planned army list utterly destroyed by inventory shortfalls at my preferred GW merchant, everything's up in the air right now with regard to tournament readiness. It's anyone's guess. There's going to be some long nights ahead.

Current tournament readiness grade: C

  1. Awesome. I love the termis. We need to drill out the barrels on your dred, son. I can help you with that. Want to bring it by my office, which has moved?

  2. I'm not drilling anything. This isn't Golden Daemon. I have a pin vice.

    Thanks for the offer, though.

  3. I don't care for your tone. It's toney. Next time I see your army, I'm drilling out any barrels I see, drive-by style.

    Did you make your color mixes yet?

  4. Sorry, it's residual resentment from reading forums. Someone will post a perfectly nice miniature and invariably some clown will come along and comment to the effect of, "Barrels not drilled, you are the weakest link, goodbye." And they won't even say it nice like you did.

    But really, this isn't of high importance for me, especially at this stage. Maybe I'll get to it down the road. I do appreciate the offer, though.

    I haven't yet, and may not do it right away - I need to get models glued to bases right now. but I'll probably take a detour and try it out soon.

  5. Looking good! Excellent base work too. I didn't even notice the barrels. I am feeling a little self conscious now as I don't think I have ever drilled out a barrel.

    What are you trying to say here?!?!?!

  7. On barrels: I only think it is appropriate on big guns. I wouldn't sweat it though.

    @Joe: Oh, I think he said it.

  8. Ha. What I meant is that the photos in this set are more concerned with displaying the models as a whole with a slight eye toward "artistic expression" (ex: the robed dude), rather than showing particular features of the painting. There's some weathering on the chainsword that I'm proud of, for example, but that doesn't come across. I really like the atmosphere, though.

  9. I come here for the atmosphere you know.
