  1. It looks like she murdered someone for a tape measure.
  2. +1 Totally looks like you could hack the legs off, make new ones, and reattach the boots. We've all seen you rock the greenstuff on tougher jobs!
  3. Getting an MVP on a scrub player and being able to immediately roll for a random skill is fun reward for the completely random MVP - but that's because my scrubs are Goblins and Snotlings who I can, and usually do, immediately cut if they get a crappy roll. However, I just got Prehensile Tail on a Goblin and I'm looking forward to the using that!
  4. Something strange going on with Kickstarter links being embedded. I'll try this edit: LINK to cool Kickstarter
  5. One Chart to Rule Them All Contrast paints are a revolution in the hobby world, and like any technology pioneer, they pave the way for other companies to make similar products. One of the first to market is the Instant Colors range from Scale75, who ran a Kickstarter campaign in 2020 to fund the production. Being a huge fan of Contrast, I jumped into this Kickstarter as soon as I could. After a long year of waiting, they finally arrived! Of course I was eager to start painting models with them, but I had the immediate dilemma of figuring out how these colors integrated with the Cont
  6. That Necromunda terrain is amazing! Looking forward to seeing the fantasy terrain. @RobynMM got any action shots of a game on it? Also, any plans to show it off at the Ordo clubhouse...? 🙂 (I know, after the pandemic and all that).
  7. Here's a small (snotling-sized) update to this band of merry little blighters. Thanks to @splinx I was able to add a couple of the original Blood Bowl Snotlings from 2nd edition. Back when Space Marines had beaks and small really meant small. As with the other runts, they are, in fact, so small that there's plenty of room on the bases to add decoration and I mixed them up with some modern accoutrements, like toadstools and a fungi-snail... or maybe it's an es-snot-go? Happy New Year!
  8. A Very Special Holiday Episode Why is it so special? Well, for one, it's the holidays and that makes everything special. For two, this episode is all about other people's Contrast tutorials. In other words, I didn't have to paint anything to make this content, thus I am celebrating the holidays by not working. Think about it. #1 Paint ANYTHING to this standard in less than an hour! by Trovarian Miniatures Why is this #1? Because in a word, this tutorial is pure awesome. I have a scientific checklist to prove it: Chris, the host, doesn't spend the first minute-and-a-half blatherin
  9. Da Yellow Bitz - Snotlings! To celebrate the release of Blood Bowl Season 2, I wanted to build one of the new teams created as part of the new edition. And what could be better than the looney hijinks of Snotlings? Not only would this be a fun project for using Contrast paints, it also (conveniently) checks the box as a good excuse for exhuming more of those ancient models from my bitz box and finally slapping some paint on them. As it turns out, I've been a greenskin fan - and specifically a Snotling fan - long enough to have a substantial pile of old models from the various generations
  10. The Black Gobbo The Black Gobbo is a Star Player in Blood Bowl. A devious fellow, he sneaks a variety of secret weapons onto the pitch to give opposing players a bad day. Bombs, knives, and in Season 2, a special ability to encourage additional poor sportsmanship (aka, fouls) from teammates. This guy is the pinnacle of Contrast and Chill (at least so far): short time, great results. Not counting prep time, as in getting the model cleaned up and primed, it took 47 minutes to paint him from start to finish. Granted, he's almost all black given his hooded robe and shoes, bu
  11. Whoa, that is serious hardware! Very cool. I have not had issues waiting for drying, though I also tend to paint several minis at once so by the time I finish the last one, the first one is dry. When doing a single mini, I also usually have something else cooking, like a conversion I'm working on. So I trade greenstuff drying time with Contrast drying time... Ha, typing this out made me realize that's what I've been doing to kill the time. Subconscious efficiency! 😆
