A Sinister Gunslinger

I created a gunslinger in HeroForge and painted him. Note the black hands, head, and chest. This fellow is supposed to be a scary faceless legend, but I haven't yet come up with a cool name for him. He's destined for Villains & Vigilantes at some point...but as hero or villain?

Here is Flow, an assassin I designed for the Villains & Vigilantes roleplaying game. Flow possesses heightened strength and a range of chemical abilities, shapeshifting, and plasticity. Her mottled appearance is supposed to suggest her body is shifting between different chemical elements, such as, in this case, copper and silver.

Painted Deathbot

Here's another painted miniature from Civilization V, a killer death robot available only in the late stage of the game. This one turned out a bit better than the longbowman.

Resting Longbowman

Here's an out-of-focus English longbowman, shoddily painted. Oof. Painting things is so hard at this small scale. Look at all those missed spots.

This miniature came with the special edition of Civilization V; it's metal, and quite hefty.

Undercover Avenue

Something strange happened on the way home from work this afternoon: along my straightforward drive from Stantec Tower to Terra Losa, I drove past five unmarked police cars with their lights running in the act of pulling over other drivers. Even stranger, they were about evenly spaced at one-fifth intervals along my commute, the first just past Stantec Tower and the last just before my final turn into our condo complex. The vehicles pulled over were two mid-size cars, two pickup trucks, and a box truck.

Were they speeding? Was EPS conducting some kind of spot check along my route? Questions, questions...

Kimbra's On Top of the World

I started paying attention to Kimbra after her appearance in Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" single, and I'm glad I did. Here's her latest; powerful, vibrant, full of passionate energy.
