I'm way behind in showing you some of the miniature-related fun we've had going on at home lately, so since I have had zero time to sew in the last two days I think I'll show you now!
First off I painted a model last month for Lost Hemisphere's monthly Paint the Target fun. This month's target was to paint a model with reach. I chose the Troll's Kriel Warrior Caber Thrower.
|really proud of the muscle shading & highlighting|
Whereas in real life a caber looks more like a telephone pole, this troll has hoisted up a marble pillar to hurl at his enemies. (Want to know more about caber tossing? Check this out! And for those who want something more sciencey there's this!)
|tartan painted in the dark. I swear I'll fix it.|
Remember way back when I entered Captain Spud's Make Something Amazing Contest over at Lost Hemisphere? No? Well, I've posted about it a few times, notably here and here. Anyway, even though I didn't win, Spud sent out small prizes to everyone anyway, and very generous ones at that.
Super exciting to get mail from Canada!
My husband had entered, too and we were super excited to see what we had received.
Inside there were things for each of us: a 6" spray and a letter.
|reluctantly letting me photograph his letter|
Mine certifies that I am "amazing," my husband's: not so much. He had a bit of trouble with his project, but I'm proud of him for seeing it through to the end.
The box that made up the bulk of the package was the Dire Troll plastic kit, which contains the bits and pieces to make any combo of 3 Dire Trolls: The Blitzer, the Bomber, or the Mauler.
|a hand full of heads|
|a hand full of hands|
We are currently working on a way to make it work so that we can actually use all three.
|Hey, there's a FOURTH card there!|
What's that fourth card? It's for Rok! While I've been busy sewing away for GenCon my husband has been busy playing Warmahordes and winning. With his winnings he was able to purchase the kit for Rok that also goes with the Dire Troll kit.
And then there was this shiny that he had been wanting and that I had been wanting to paint: The Trollblood Runeshapers.
|oh yeah, that's going to be fun hee hee|
And then I made a tiny purchase of my own. It's not an exceptional model but the price was right. I am taking a few classes at GenCon including some for painting (faces, freehanding, etc), so I wanted to have something cheap with me that I could work on while I was there.
Well, I have to rush out the door to work, so I guess that's all for now!
