Doctor Carrington

Here's Doctor Carrington, and only now so I see that I forgot to paint his tie. Unless he deliberately chose a white tie to go with his white shirt and white jacket. Well, he's a scientist, so who knows?

Desdemona

Here's Desdemona, leader of the Railroad faction in Fallout 4. For a challenging figure, I think I did all right here. I like the base, her vest, her hair and features, and the weapon is...all right. It's playable, at least.

Gunner Conscript

No wonder this guy is angry; he's been conscripted into the service of the violent and deadlyk Gunners mercenary faction. Face and hair are okay here; weapons passable, base not bad.

Another Gunner Private

Here's another Gunner private. Face and hair are terrible here, weapon and outfit merely passable. Not one of my better efforts.

Gunner Private

Here's a private from my small squad of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Gunners. Face is okay, hair decent, and I like that the armor plating stands out from the rest of her outfit. The dried mud base is all right, too. But still - needs greater definition.

Gunner Sergeant

Here's a Gunner Sergeant to help ensure that the Gunner Commander's orders are well-executed. I'm a bit happier with this model; I feel his various parts are better differentiated, and his face is actually reasonably human.

Gunner Commander

Here's one of a handful of Gunners I painted over the weekend. This one's clad in a set of power armour, sans helmet. I regret the dark brown I chose for the base. The Gunner's face is okay, and the armor's not bad. And yet the model still lacks that sense of depth and realism I keep striving for, even after several retries on this figure.

Grognak's Greatest Foe

At right, we have Grognak, the blonde barbarian featured in comic books scattered around the post-nuclear holocaust world of the Fallout computer games. I bought two of these models because they make great standard barbarian archetypes, but wound up thinking of Grognak's world and the enemies he might face. Many great heroes eventually face their mirror image, so I came up with Kangorg, Grognak's evil doppelgänger. But for their hair and clothing, you'd never know the difference--until they act.

Mother's Day 2022

Sean and I helped Mom in the garden yesterday and wished her Happy Mother's Day then, but I wanted to mark the occasion today too. I'm very grateful to Mom for her love, guidance, and the example she set, and I'm looking forward to celebrating a milestone birthday with her, Sean, Sylvia, and our aunts and uncle this summer. Happy Mother's Day!

The 28mm Thing from Another World

Because The Thing from Another World was shot in black and white, I don't know what the titular alien might have looked like in colour I tried to imagine what the costume designers of that time might have done, and so I settled on a metallic sheen for his spacesuit, green skin, and purple hair.

Monitoring Antarctica

I'm pretty happy with the neatness of this console. I'm getting better at steadying my hand and applying the right amount of paint to tiny, tiny details like the buttons and switches seen here.

Doctor Frankenstein

Here's Doctor Frankenstein, ready to bring down the lightning that will galvanize his grim collection of body parts into a living, breathing monster. But who is the real monster?

Pig Platter

Here is a 28mm-scale roast pig, served up on a platter of fruits and vegetables.

A Chilly Relationship

I have some winter terrain from a Kickstarter coming soon, and in preparation I've painted and based a number of miniatures to suit that terrain. Here's a fellow lugging snowshoes (why isn't he wearing them?) and his faithful wolf hound.

Old West Bank Patron

This little lady came as one-third of a set of people you might find at a bank in the mid-to-late 1800s. I'm not terribly happy with my colour choices, but what's done is done.
