I'm close to finishing another squad of ork boyz, but I admit that I am starting to lose steam with painting all of them. I took a break from orks and painted my goblins back up for tabletop use.


How they used to look
Spoiler:

You might remember from earlier on this page how I had stripped my goblin minis, and how many had fallen apart


Also this is what they looked like a few years ago, when I first made them.


I may move on away from orks soon, even though it is still Orktober. I have felt excited by the idea of preparing some under-se encounters for Dungeons & Dragons. I started making some sand covered ruins on an old CD, and can finally base my "marine nose" sculpture from last year. While was I gluing sand, I decided that I should put sand on a terrain piece that I started in 2017, while I was at it.

Hi Everyone,
With Orktober coming to an end, here is a shot of all of the painted orks in my collection. I'm not going to get anymore done for a while, I expect. I don't know if I will do any special crafting for Tanksgiving as I'm exciting about making some stuff for D&D.

I think there is somewhere between 80-90 orks in this picture. 48 of which were painted or repainted in the last two months or so.

That's a right proper Waaaaagh! you have in the photo- excellent work to get so much done!

You and Warboss Wazaagh are psyching me up to get back to work myself with all the productivity you've got displayed- now if I could only get Life to cooperate just a smidge....

I'll get there. In the meantime, very well done!

@Meer_Cat: Sadly life has a tendency to do that. In your case, life seems to channel its rage through your apartment. I'm looking forward to when you have more hobby time.
@Captain Brown: Thanks CB
@Ezki: Thanks Ezki, I do enjoy looking at the finished models. I'm excited to make underwater encounters for D&D. I'm trying to craft everything in the undersea encounters table in the Dungeon Master's Guide.

I do love me some Orks. I shudder to think how long your Move phase would take, though.

Now showing Enforcers for Deadzone!

Painting Total as of 11/30/2021: 104 plus an iron golem and five spider nests and all the obstacles for Dreadball Xtreme and four trapdoors and a cauldron and some teleport disks and three SF buildings and some resin barricades!

Underwater encounters eh? I imagine there’s a pretty wide variety of monsters in there to get into? Lots of tentacles and teeth. Excited to see what you and your glue gun come up with.

@JoshInJapan: Thanks Josh, and yes the move phase can take a while. I play pretty low key, so it's measure the farthest forward ork, then eyeball the rest of the movement, or even shove forward the rest in a pile if I'm impatient
@theCrowe: Thanks theCrowe. There's a decent number, but I'm surprised that there actually isn't too many monsters. Just two types of sharks, two types of evil merfolk, good merfolk, a sea hag, a giant octopus, and a storm giant. So coupled with all the terrain, those are the things I'll be working on.

Because of how much undersea terrain and minis I will be making, I decided to throw together a little display area (still WIP) for when I photograph them. It's hard to ever have any of my hobby area clean enough for photos. I also started sculpting some sharks, a fish, and a lot of kelp/seaweed style scatter today, so I put them in the display area.

That looks fantastic and it isn't even painted yet!

A phrase I grew up hearing as a boy was 'fear the man with one rifle, for he knows how to use it;. Every time I see you push the envelope of what can be done with a hot glue gun it reminds me of this. You look for ways to accomplish what you want beginning with the use of the hot glue gun- not using hot glue as an adjunct to getting to the goal.

Rock on!

What! No giant octopus, no electric eels or poison dart snails? No vampire squid or kungfu-shrimp? The D&D folks need to watch a few episodes of Octonauts!

Happy Halloween!

The pumpkin is a new sculpt, the rest is old, but I wanted to show a little Halloween scene (and I didn't have time to finish painting a new mini)

@Meer_Cat: Thanks so much Meer, I've very happy with how well the undersea terrain is looking so far. I will strive to not disappoint with my hot glue gun
@theCrowe: There actually is a giant octopus at least, I had forgotten about it. I was considering an electric eel, but that kungfu-shrimp you mentioned is tempting

That's a nice Halloween display! And really excited about the underwater stuff, it's always better under the sea

Thanks Viterbi I'm almost done with what I originally planned for Halloween, but didn't have enough time. I'm looking forward to continuing the undersea stuff as well. I hope to play a game using them.

I had originally planned to have this finished a few weeks before Halloween to use as a decoration. Then I pushed to have it done to post on the day of Halloween. Neither happened. But I have finally finished painting the Reaper Bones V Overgourd:

@KernelTerror: heh heh, thanks. Alot of people have been saying that Reaper wanted to make a beholder without getting in trouble for using D&D's IP, so they made this.
@brushcommando: Thanks I'm quite happy with how it turned out. And yeah, I think the name Reaper gave it is clever too. And welcome to the blog.
@Ezki: Thanks Ezki I'm glad after these years the pumpkincrow still looks good.

I recently finished basing and painting this oil drum scatter.


This most recent piece has been sitting as oil drums cast out of hot glue sitting on a bare piece of foamcore since 2017. I started making it at the same time as my first LoER contest piece (pictured on the left)


Since I had the sand out a few weeks ago, I also finally based my undersea nose sculpture from Sculptember 2020, and made the new piece on the left. The broken edges of the pillar are excess from resin pours that a friend of mine did. He said he hope I could find a use for them. From the nice texture, I'm guessing it was poured onto crumpled aluminum foil?


Last up, I am planning on painting these four Reaper Christmas themed miniatures.


Thanks for stopping by.

Those Reaper Xmas minis are intriguing, excited to see them painted up. And even if it didn't arrive for Halloween, that Pumpkin-Beholder was worth the wait. Great mini and great paintjob!

I haven't made enough progress on the Christmas dragon minis to post, but I have begun working on them. I have also been painting more of my Reaper Bones V Kickstarter minis. I finished these three today.

Lots of really nice shades of green in that veggie there. Looks super. Lots of great under the sea goodness on the bench too. As always a refreshing variety of things on the go Syro_.

@Viterbi: Thanks And agreed about both the unusual sculpt that Reaper made and about not liking cabbage.
@theCrowe: Thanks I tried to paint the leaves of the cabbage like I was using contrast paint but basing in white and then watering down my green. It worked better than I expected, and to be honest it's not great but better than it looks in the photos.
