this is far too friendly. Get the smack talk rolling.

Cassu, bud says your a convict and Ricky Ponting is a dick.

Bud Cassu crept into your house last night and wee'd in your wardrobe

:slap:

Cassu

Well agreed on the Ricky Ponting thing and I am proud of my convict heritage, so I'll take that as a compliment. It'll take more than that to provoke me! :biggrin:

Slowly assembling the shards on a square 25mm base, this is the figure I'll be using. Reaper's 'Alastriel, Elf Sorceress.' (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/alastriel/sku-down/02967)

ooh I have this mini, got it last year after seeing NeatPete paint one up. I shall watch with even greater interest now.

Is that alabaster your using on the base?

(BTW I made your image bigger - when you write your post click the thumbnail image twice and options appear - including making bigger sized)

Love that mini! That's one i hope to paint in the future too. I'm interested to see how you fix her onto that base (which looks cool btw)

bud

Finally it's the first of May and I am done work. "cracks knuckles lets go"
If she did wee on my clothing that would be a problem cheapest thing I have is a $50T

Cassu came running out of her corner throws the strongest right hook she can, sending bud flying into the brick wall. Onlookers look in amazement wondering if they have just seen an early knockout blow, as the dust starts to rest around the hole in the wall an dark evil laugh starts to come out(sad fact is I have a vary deep and evil laugh). bud slowly movies out of the hole with only one thought on his mind "this is going to be so much fun".

so for the last hour and a bit I have work and this is what I have to show need to let the glue settle so I can use putty to fill up gaps but that is for tomorrow.

I use that basing technique too. You putty then add coarse then fine sand to give a better finish?

bud
01-05-2013, 10:34 PM
I have some new putty and didn't want to try it only to have it screw up so it's just cork, I would add sand but 90% of the cork is going to get covered with snow only bit's showing the under side with some ice on them. Other wise I would put sand on to the cork, sadly I am having a hard time finding crushed glass to help my snow out wonder if it's legal where I live have to look that up.

bud

Made some more progress on the base and the mini is all good for the bath tomorrow, Cassu how are you going to pin your elf to the base. I also need to ask I may need more time found out yesterday I may be going to nights and that I will be told on Fri your Sat, I am thinking a week extra so I can get used to nights and working on my guy. I am going to me like this for a few months :fret

Yes

Normski
03-05-2013, 01:55 PM
make some!!!! rolling pin, pillow case, news paper! put glas in news paper inside pillow case pound the bejebus out of it when is small enough grains take it out and crush it with end of rolling pin!! always were protective clothing! any clear food jar will do!!

However!! here is an Idea for ya!! Miss Normski puts this crazy nail stuff on which she cures with UV light!! well one of the steps is some kind of really fine glitter and it sparkles like nobodys business!! I will find out what its called and message ya back! it comes in pretty much any colour ya like!!

Give me an Hour or so and I will get ya some info!!

bud
03-05-2013, 02:20 PM
K thanks Normski I would take some glass and jump up and down on it but my sister has 3 cats and a dog and all the neighbors have a dog don't want any of them stepping on the glass or eating it. Will look back for the info Normski thanks:07: this should insure an answer.

Cassu found out today if I do go to nights till will start June 1st, so I will not need anytime add, have made some small progress over the last two days. The base is painted won't be putting snow on yet till the mini is done, and have just started the Armour and shaded it in trying not to use my painting style.

Sorry for the lack of progress guys, as bud said I requested some more time due to awesome career-ish things happening.

Finally got Miss Snow Pants (or lack of pants?) attached to her base and all primed up and ready to paint. Hope to get the bulk of the painting done this coming weekend.
Still loving that this is a Winter challenge, Winter has just started here in Australia and wow am I cold. Very inspiring. :biggrin:
