New year, new minis. Got the Reaper Bones 2 Kickstarter package with a couple expansions for myself for the holidays. Since the explosions from the neighbors woke me up in the wee hours, I decided to paint one to calm myself down. It'll get based once I get the bases I ordered, probably in a week or so.

This is my first time painting the Bones minis. Was pretty impressed with the detail, considering the material. It definitely needed a good scrubbing to remove the mold release, but after that it took paint very well. I washed it with brown ink and then worked up layers with Vallejo model color and Army Painter paints. The eyes were done with some ancient Citadel paints and a line of brown ink.

Several weeks ago someone added "a pony" to the supplies list. Then someone else added pink to it. Then it became a pink sparkly pony. Challenge accepted! Fortunately I used to paint a lot of Slaanesh.

Back online
The last half of this year has been an adventure. Lots of personal stuff has gotten in the way of me posting anything. I moved from Palo Alto to Long Beach in September, and I haven't had an internet connection at home since the move. That has meant a lot o...

Started the day painting minis. Then I worked on some terrain a bit. Spent the afternoon running my second session of 5E D&D. Then sorted through some old hex-and-counter wargames to decide which one to get out on the table tonight. I think I have celebrated Gygax's birthday about as well as possible.

First 5E session
Tonight I ran a quick D&D session using the new rules and the adventure from the Starter set. It was a short session, and we only got through one encounter and a little follow-up. We had to look up a lot of details as we played, so that slowed us down. All ...

Another try
I've been neglecting the blog for the last few months, mostly because I haven't really had a lot of energy for it. Some of that is because I haven't been able to find any people to game with locally. Most of it is that I have been getting dragged down by re...

Putting my All Quiet on the Martian Front minis together. Next step is all the metal. Then it's time to break out the airbrush.
