More painting Nonsense

More stuff I am working on. I went from this:
Goblin Hewer In Pieces - Primed Black

to this:
Goblin Hewer In Pieces - Basecoated

In a matter of 3 hours. Lots of small details that I was trying to paint without losing the details.

Stuff Diabolik's been painting

I just got my first real digital camera, and I started messing with it. I have been taking pictures as I go when I am painting some models and I wanted to share them with people.

Dwarf Bolt Thrower

Dwarf Bolt Thrower 2

They aren't complete but I have a competition coming up on the 28th where I need to have stuff painted, so I am getting stuff done as fast as I can and then I will go back and actually finish them.

Let me know what you think.

BIC Drama

Hey everyone.

I just wanted people to know that our Father (or father-in-law in Rich's case) underwent a triple bypass operation today.

He is resting now and seems to have come through it intact. We will see what the next few days lead us to, but I am sure that he will make a full recovery.

More TV from Diabolik

I just watched the last 2 episodes of The Shield.......wow. If anyone isn't familiar with the show or hasn't watched it in a few seasons, go get the seasons on DVD and watch it. i loved the irony in how the show ended compared to how it started. It was almost uncomfortable to watch the last 3 minutes.

I woke up today, made it down to the store and checked the TV listings from last night so that I would know what I could expect on my DVR when I get home today, and what do I find? New episodes of Nip/Tuck started last night. And new episodes of Damages start tonight. Along with a bunch of shows kicking back off after the break.

Surprise things for Diabolik....I like the show Worst Week. It is a little over the top, but if anyone has just had their life spiral out of control in one day, that is this show.

And I really enjoy The Mentalist. I don't know why, something about the main character makes me smirk, and the fact that the overarching goal of the show has only been focused on in one episode and mentioned in 2 others makes me want to see what happens. Not like with CSI when the miniature killer struck 5 times in 3 episodes or whatever. This one is far more subtle.

That's all I have right now. Now I get to inventory a store full of miniatures.
