I finished the Bulettes, aka, Land Sharks! Made these in Blender, then 3D printed them, then painted. Took way too long to do, but now they are ready to nom nom the players (including myself) in D&D. Very happy with how they turned out. They may be a little large for large, but I like my minis to really take up their base.
#wip painting with Kimera Kolors so I’m actually having to mix my own hues.
While I'm thinking about it, here's something for #MiniatureMonday - A Loonshrine for the Gloomspite Gitz! Painting little spots on a fly agaric mushroom makes me feel whimsical.
What are your current goals in the hobby? To publish a game, complete a campaign, Dm for the first time? Mine are all painting related- I'd like to appear in a print magazine like White Dwarf or Amazing Figure Modeler while they still exist, and I'd like to place at PAX unplugged (providing they've worked out the kinks in their painting contest). More long term, I'd like to get good enough to do box art.
Its #miniatureMonday so here is this chap throwing his birdie friend into battle.
Here's my contribution for #MiniatureMonday : Some Endless Spells for a Gloomspite Gitz army. Please enjoy my Old Navy backdrop, very professional.

Hey there! LONG time D&D enthusiast (both player & DM) and other RPGS (Shadowrun, GURPS, RIft, White WOlf etc.). Current group of 4+ years together. 5e Faerun. Anyone still running Dark Sun?
I am also a recent fan of board games! I LOVE minis!, but love board games in general. Some faves so far - Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Zombicide, Elder Sign, and dungeon crawlers!
I also love ARPGS such as Diablo 3, Grim Dawn, Path of Exile, and Torchlight 2 :)
Thanks for the add!
Cry Havoc! And let slip the cocks of war!
I love to paint miniatures! Working on a Seraphon army for Age of Sigmar.
