Was sort of at a loss for the tombstone that goes on the base of the pube devil, so I grabbed the color wheel and sort of went crazy.
I like it I think? If I stick with it it'll need some refinement. Might just be knocking everything back with some browns, definitely adding some highlights and shadows.
Bare minimum got to put some matte varnish on that shiny magenta at the bottom.
Good morning! Studio's open, come on in! It's Friday, it's the last stream of the month, and I'm done with most of the things, so .. it's speedpaint o'clock! Pull up a chair and hang out while I paint something!

The NMM will continue until the vibes are correct!
These boots are taking forever, there are so many nooks and crannies, and an arm bracer (?) to go as well. Doesn't help that I am also slow 😆. Today is the first day I've had time to add more paint in a lil.
Finally had time to get the basing done! Added some rocks from the VLoZD kit also used sone hair pieces as grass.
The fence divides the base between a road and graveyard. Used extra grave stones from the zombie kit and the flagstones for the road are plasticard!
Ok, finally feeling a bit more like myself, as in I can walk the dogs without feeling like I need a nap afterwards! Got to do a little bit of painting, reworked this fellas hat and gave him some goofy eyes.
I've done it! Used the airbrush for painting instead of priming. Still very much getting the hang for how much thinner to use. I can see why when you get the hang of it this is a very useful tool, if not actually doing anything of value just yet.
You can sort of see where I unsuccessfully started on the grey for the roof but ran out of time.
The sides are dark jade from pro acryl, which is just a pretty color.
Once again the thrift store is the root of hobby inspiration - another ceramic building to be converted for the Halloween village. This will definitely pay homage to Our Flag Means Death.
The open question is do I attempt to snap off the snowman or sculpt it into a kraken tentacle?
Spoiler alert, there will be kraken tentacles either way.
Back from the USA and working on a Carcharodon kill team for a Badab War event. All rescue models from the Box of Old Shit I couldn't bring myself to throw out, with the terminators converted to look more like the old FW named character. All the new studs are nail art hemispheres.
Probably about two thirds done, except for basing which I still need to think about (suggestions in a reply please!)
Watched F1 qualifying and painted with my daughter this afternoon, really an ideal setup.
Quick job on our cowboy skeleton friend's bones. Something about it is off for me, either the tone is too brown or the highlights being sloppy because I dry brushed them. Thinking about a do over.
Todays chosen distraction was a #Heroquest Barbarian. One of my weakest areas in #MiniPainting is flesh. So it seemed like a good #mini to lose myself in. I’ve made a bit of an arse of the face 😂, but the muscles and body have come up in a way I like. It’s all very #WIP at the moment, but I reckon if I rescue the 🤡… I’ll be happy enough that I’ve made some personal progress.
People who've done it - was it actually worth it? Does it get a lot of use?
In terms of printers, what's the minimum cost for something decent for printing #warhammer alternatives like Highland Miniatures? Any specific recommendations?
I talk about them over on the blog in more detail if anyone is interested:
Not a great picture, but I went to attach pube devil's wig and realized I needed to figure out the horns first or I would really be making life difficult for myself.
Quick wet blending and very pleased with the results. Wish I had a little more time to do the other right now and do refinements, but whatcha gonna do.
Poking along at the hair/wig/pelt for our friend The Pube Devil (aka screaming god pinup), having fun playing with tones but think it's probably at a point where I just need to suck it up and glue it on the mini to get a sense of how it should proceed.
Every time I do a round of paint I step back and think "needs more contrast"
Basecoating is now complete, and I’ve made a good start on edge highlighting. The big tank still needs half of it’s red highlights done and both tanks need the hazard striping highlighting. Then it’s just onto a handful of little details and I can call them done, maybe another evenings work.
Har snubla inn i miniatyrspelet #Turnip28, eit såkalla «figuragnostisk» spel der ein lagar sine eigne figurar av infanteristfigurar og diverse ræl.
Verda er postapokalyptisk rundt tidleg 1800-tal ein gong, og nærast montypythonsk i framtoning, med sjølvhøgtidlege snobbar og tenkjande rotgrønsaker.
Her er litt forklaring: https://www.reddit.com/r/Turnip28/comments/10nghd2/new_to_turnip28_start_here/
Og mannen som allereie har tusen hobbyar berre.

Nobody who recognizes them is entirely sure why Taylor the Swift, a bard of such skill that they have their choice of royalty to play to, would leave it all behind to take up an instrument they had never played and busk in the streets, moving from town to town like a common gleetort, but leave they did.

Probably unpopular opinion: Competition style #miniaturepainting is so centered on displaying technical skill that visually it's really boring. The pieces seldom evoke a sense of the artist's personal style, and that bothers me because I'd rather an imperfectly executed piece that's imaginative and characterful than a technically perfect but lifeless one.
Wrote 900 words today and added these two to the Finally Done pile!
I backed the MixRack modular paint storage and hobby workstation on #GameFound ...
It looks like a good system, but they have so many configurations I almost gave up.
It's worth a look if you don't mind the potential risk of pledging on crowdfunding platforms. It's hobby investment priced. 😉
It can work with IKEA Kallax and Billy shelves (that you may already own).
I've taken an interest in making realistic miniature dioramas and not sure what tags/people I'd follow here.
I don't want to use IG for this if possible. Example: I've been enjoying these videos from Martin,
I'm looking for techniques and results rather than any specific subject matter.
Please help! 🚀 if possible. 🤓
Sadly did not have time to play Kill Team this week. Hopefully will be able to get few games during the summer holidays!
Currently playing with the Novitiates team, they have been fun but should try some of the other teams I haven't played yet....
Fresh #introduction post as I've been on Mastodon since the first Musty Meltdown but only just migrated to cupoftea.social.
I'm Suzy, I work in a chaotic little lab in the UK apart from when I'm allowed out into a field for some enrichment. In my spare time I'm a collector of hobbies including #DnD, #MiniaturePainting, #Crossstitch, #Crochet, #3dPrinting and historically, #zines. I've always loved #writing but don't do enough. Also I have a housemate called Teddy/Tedward/Tedopher/Tedocrates. He's small, orange and looks remarkably like a cat.
