I have been insanely sick with flu this past month, and it is really grinding everything to a halt re: hobbies. Work and sleep are pretty much it at the moment. But one thing did happen tonight that was nice. I got the good camera back.
So though nothing here is recent, the photos are now quality and finely detailed. You know. Like finecast. (cough, cough)
|90's Plastic warrior. Shit just got shit yo.|
So first up in my quick photo session tonight between pixel pushing and dying by degrees, is a classic 90's chaos warrior. After the wonders of the drastic plastic orcs, psychostyrene dwarves and ultra classic skeleton warriors boxed set and purely brilliant plastic space marine box, citadel did a shit stained backwards slide into the single posed dross of the 90's.
No wonder I left the hobby to have lots of sex with goth chicks.
I went with a quick Mike McVey-esque style paint job (painted on crackles and smooth blendin')- Rodney Matthews color scheme and finished it off with a John Blanche style graphic pen attack. Hate must be written on knuckles. It must.
The base is also worth noting. Based on the AD&D battlesystem pictures, the base is made from mounting board card. You often find old school minis glued to cardboard, and prior to slotta bases this was pretty standard practice. Beer mats, by the way, where the best material as they are designed not to warp! I had a theory you could turn it to rock hard plastic instead of freying paper shite by soaking it with superglue. You can. It also lets you sand the edges to smooth, plastic like finish. There see? No more excuses for not basing that irregular sized mini up.
|Minotaur Lord. Citadel 1980s.|
And to finish up a picture of my mostly done Ral Parth storm giant. A classic Tom Meier sculpt if I am not mistaken. Somehow, my money is on the Gypsy.

|Blending! Blending! Yarrrr!|
Well, a productive break considering I have not picked up a brush in ages.
Seriously. You can enjoy peoples. I recommend the danish.
