Another finished Reaper Bones V miniature. Some cute little animated tree stump type creature:



I'm slowly progressing on the Christmas dragon figurines, but hope to get through it quickly now that there's a vacation.

Nice cute minis there. What’s the plan for these festive little fellas?

Love that reaper tree-dude. Looks like a fun mini.

Thanks theCrowe, the little tree creature is a fun mini
The Christmas dragons are part of a custom advent calendar that I am making for my sister-in-law. She likes and collections dragon figurines, and plays Dungeons and Dragons.

Here are two of the Christmas dragons, finished:


I also made this cat statue from a dollar store bag on animal figures.

Speaking of which, the last two Christmas Dragons are done. I'm now getting back to working on the undersea encounters.


Thanks for stopping by

I would have liked the paint a little smoother, but the seaweed/kelp undersea scatter terrain is done. Overall, I'm happy with it.

Great, now I'll be working all day with "Under the sea" in my ear

And the finished dragons are gorgeous, the one cuddling his teddy is quickly becoming my new favorite.

The kelp bed scatter is brilliant- I'm stealing that!

I've been saving some of those bits of green plastic foil-looking decoration that come in sushi orders- I guess they're supposed to look like bamboo leaves, perhaps? They measure about 1 1/2 inches by three inches long. I was thinking they might could be clipped into strips and left attached at the bottom and could be eel grass.

Viterbi's not the only one with Sebastian singing in his ear, either.

Heh heh, yeah, it's be getting stuck in my head quite ofen as I work on this terrain too

@Viterbi: And thanks. The dragon cuddling the teddy bear was the hardest to paint and the most work, so I'm glad it is liked.
@aku-chan: Thanks!
@Meer_Cat: That's great I hope to see your version of the kelp bed scatter terrain and what you can do with that eel grass idea. I like your idea too, for a long time I have wanted to do something with that fake grass in the sushi packages too

Happy holidays everyone! I have been lazy about uploading, but I have been busy with hobbying once Christmas break began. This post is more about the generosity of my family and all the hobby stuff I got.

I was given all this paint, which is exciting for me. I received 78 new paints and 3 new washes. Before this Christmas I owned 42 miniature paints and 6 washes. My miniature paint collection is effectively three times the size that it was.


Here is my entire miniature paint collection: 120 paints, 8 inks, and 9 washes.


I've never had this problem before, but now I tried out every paint in a journal with different primers to know what the paints look like:
Spoiler:











I also received new Dungeons & Dragons miniatures
A lot of giants (I want to try Storm King's Thunder)



I am continuing my under sea encounters with 8 reef sharks.

Thanks Vik! Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you too.

2021 Retrospective: It's hard to believe how long ago the beginning of this year feels. I was living in a different country, with a different job, and working on making a board game. I was also sculpting and crafting for Dungeons & Dragons (This part hasn't changed much). Since then I have also come home, started enjoying my miniature purchases, painted more miniatures, and picked up some old projects.

I have sculpted more miniatures and painted more miniatures this year than I ever have before.
Total sculpted miniatures this year = 54
Total painted miniatures this year = 181

Here is a picture of most of my hobby accomplishments for this year


not pictured above: the 4 christmas dragons, cat statue, 48 ork boyz, a goblin tank with goblins, and two snowmen.
Spoiler:









The newest finished sculpture is this giant seahorse that I finished today


Thanks for stopping by, and happy new year!

Great paints haul you good there and love the 2021 overview pic (even if incomplete). Very cool mix of different stuff and am excited to see what you will bring on here in 2022!

Wow! You certainly have been busy last year!
That is an impressive amount of minis sculpted & painted. And all that between having so many big life events. Hats off to you!

Hard to pick a favorite, so I'm going to be boring and say... all of them

Your paint collection has certainly grown
That journal is such a good idea. I would never have the patience to do such a thing, really good work.
And thank you for sharing it, so we can get some idea how they look compared to each other.

One can always learn so much browsing this thread. Thank you for that. Keep on being awesome!

And a Happy New Year to you as well!

Great round-up with loads of different things. Love all the underwater items and the game pieces. (How did the game development go?)
But my favourite has to be that massive cabbage monster. Such a great piece. And the big Halloween pumpkin vine fella is a very close second.

@Viterbi: Thanks Viterbi! At least the beginning of 2022 will hopefully bring the completion of my undersea encounters project. After that, who knows.
@Ezki: Thanks Ezki, and I can understand about difficulty with having patience to finish the paint journal. I was working on that for 4-5 days with all the drying times. I'm happy to hear that you like so much of what I'm doing
@theCrowe: Thanks theCrowe As for the game development, I'm hoping to get some more progress on it soon. When I moved back home from Hong Kong, I threw away the molds and the cards to save on weight, but kept the masters and painted miniatures I made for it. I've been so busy with work ever since I got back, that I haven't made much progress beyond writing maybe two new cards. I just ordered some blank playing cards that I hope to get back to testing the game with. Thanks for asking.

Here's the first finished sculpture of 2022:


Here's the one armed crab without the rider (with attachable arm)




And with his son/creation who received the arm

Your sculpting is excellent, as usual.
