now I know why you don't get much done!

I would get discouraged on so much stuff in front of me that still needs to be done.

Man, looking at you work is strengthening my conviction to assemble and paint my minis even more. Inspiring stuff. :::cheers:::

That has also often been a cause of me sitting doing nothing for hours too.

Well zero - I saw your posts and pic about moving house - sad loss of the gaming space, but thought I might just remind you of opportunities if you have a garden where you are going ..................  page 2 has the pics if you need more inspiration.  :biggriin:

July is looking to be a good month  - Kickstarters imminent

Pugnacious Halflings
Tag / WK Roosters
Frostgrave Gnickstarter

Anyone would have thought I planned it for birthday presents .................. spread the expense earlier in the year.  :engel:

I also got an order through quite quickly from Black Cat Bases - so they seem to be back up and running.

and I am just 6 models short of completing the set of Kev Adams Mercenary Ogres and Orcs, and those 6 are now available via Foundry as after swapping information and pictures they seem to have found moulds.
The only problem is the Foundry pricing - just waiting for a Sale  :closed-eyes:

Actually it is not the only problem - and I hate to admit this, I have run out of round bases - yes I did type 'round':engel:

After only having ever used them on my limited 40K incursions, I decided to use them for Frostgrave figures, and then Legends of the High Seas/Old West and I am going to have to buy some.
Now there is a news story .............................

I have a whole bunch I'm never going to use if you want me to send them your way. Maybe 60 or so?

That's what I thought .................  :engel:

Thanks, but checking Ebay quickly, I can get 100 for under £5 which is probably less than the postage for yours.

There's a 500 deal as well - might go for that .............. now I am converted to the round bases .................  :biggriin:

Ah.
Might have used it as an opportunity to send you other bits and bobs that I may not need anymore as I am trying to downsize...

But those are excellent deals.

I have a question about grass tufts - I understand they generally come with a sticky base.

How good is the stickiness and what surfaces does it work?

I imagine it works fairly well on standard individual miniature bases, but is that after they have been primed, painted, and possibly textured in some way like with sand?

My question is driven by some scenery I am making with plants on 60mm circular bases in 4Ground wood bases - I have used polyfilla ( do you north americans call it spackle? ) to 'build up' the ground around the trunks of the plants, and I think a few tufts would enhance the pieces.

Does the sticky pad work on that sort of hard material.

Has anyone added extra glue on dodgy surfaces and made it work?

Tufts are awesome, a basing game changer. Embrace the tuft! I find them to be tacky rather than sticky, if that makes sense. Like repositionable glue? I use a spot of superglue just to be sure but it's probably not needed.

Thank you for the reminder. Although the house is small, the yard is fairly large, as is the two-car detached garage. I've been considering several options, though I'm not certain how well they will pan out.

My concerns are the extremes in weather here and how that will impact the painting & sculpting supplies.

Arise :icon_exclaim:

Used Karak's PB trick to reclaim my pics however temporarily it may be for.

Now I am retired I have theoretically loads more time for hobby stuff .......... though the good lady may dispute this.  :biggriin:

I also need to dispel this malicious rumour that I do not paint minis ..........................  :engel:

*Clap clap*
for the past 2 years, I have sat in my cage, watching the owners put me in small, translucent spheres, and dump small, rock like food, into my cage. But no longer!, I have broken free of the shackles of being a hamster and now!, I paint, as a hamster can not do much more, mostly our small life span

Wow, look at that, there's how one needs to start their retirement!

He hasn't been retired long, and look at his painting production rate already!

Great collection!

Second pic, the HW + Halberd Kislevites must have offended the archer unit to their fore, as one of the archers has turned around to aim at them. Animosity in the ranks! :-D
