For the time being, I have the Flingers sitting on the painting table, their skin painted and ready for the armor and weapons to be painted. But for now, I have no time to work on it and they will have to wait until after the Holidays for me to get back to them.

Only 12 days left in December. I'm not sure if I'll have SDE ready for New Years Eve or not now, as I've been kinda busy lately. Of course, it doesn't really matter does it? I hear the world is ending on Friday.

I've tried being as patient as I could, but it proved to be really difficult. Eventually I just put Roxor out of my mind completely and it helped that all last month I was busy with my arcade cab project. So that kept my mind off of it for awhile. It seems like things were delayed and delayed and after missing two estimated shipment dates Soda Pop Miniatures finally got their shipments in and have been working since Friday to get everything shipped out to the folks who preordered it on their webstore.

Looks like we are having a New Years Eve board game party this year. Which means I really need to get my ass in gear and finish, at least, the main set for SDE. If Roxor gets here soon (which is supposed to be shipping "very soon"), I'll at least paint up the heroes for it so all the players have a painted character.
But today has consisted of cleaning the house. My arcade project caused 75% of the house to look like a warzone and I really need to get things back in order. Once the cleaning is done, I'll be setting the paint table up again and will get to work!
All that needs to be done for the base set are a few details on Starfire and then painting up the Kobolds. I'm really torn on what colors to paint the Kobolds... I want to paint them like lizardmen in greens, but Roxor comes with turtles and they will also be shades of green...

Came home from work on Friday and I had a box from Reaper Miniatures waiting for me. Inside was the Liche level ReaperCon Sophie set and both the Urban Legends and Regular Kickstarter Sophie. The plan is to paint both of the motorcycles in metallic paint schemes. I've been testing how to do it with pearlescent acrylic medium mixed with my mini paints. I'm hoping they turn out as well as I think they will. But I need to order a few things before I get started.

So I tossed an email back to Reaper asking about it and Kit quickly replied:
"An error in the mail routine truncated the extras. You'll be receiving the other things as well. My apologies for the confusion."
Well, that's a relief. Now I just need to find time to work on both of the Kickstarter models. I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do with the motorcycle. I just hope it turns out better than my original tests.

Soda Pop sent me a notice today they will be receiving Roxor next week and that they will be shipping it out as soon as it hits their warehouse. I love their product, but sometimes they test my patience.
The shipping of Roxor is good news and bad news. I still haven't been able to finish painting the base set. But as soon as I am done with this arcade cab I plan on polishing off the base set. All I need to do is finish Starfire and the Kobolds...
But I can't wait to paint up Roxor. Its all Fire Elementals and Turtles. And I already know how I want to paint them up!

These models caused me to do some major research on how to improve my technique on painting skin. Which lead me to this pretty awesome (and NSFW) tutorial on Skank Game. And that lead me to use those techniques on all my Super Dungeon Explore heroes and on this succubus... this is probably the best skin paint job I've ever done and I'm really pleased with how this whole figure turned out. (NSFW nekkid succubus after the break)

Been a little bit since I've posted anything. That's because I've been working on the Dragon's Clutch to Super Dungeon Explore. It's taking awhile, because I'm painting them all in the same color scheme. Which means I'm painting 13 dragons, one color at a time.
I have the skin painted, but may need to do a few more successive highlights. The problem is they are Black Dragons, so it's hard to see the highlights that are already there. The eyes and under bellies are done, and once the skin is done I just need to paint the insides of their mouths and any horns/spines left.
Pics coming soon.

The object of the contest is to make at least 2 boards, themed after the new Caverns of Roxor expansion. I've already drawn up some plans and perhaps tonight I'll lay it out on graph paper. The only problem is, I lack practice with modeling terrain. But this could be a fun way to start out.
