Les Enfants de L'Autumne

Placed an order for Les Enfants de L'Autumne from Tor Gaming. Decided that I should get it while it was still available.

Dragon Painting Competition WIP

Been working on a few items right now. The main attraction is a piece that has to be finished by the end of next month (July). The theme for the competition is to paint a magician of some sort.

I dug around my Orcs and Goblins army that I haven't painted yet and found an old Night Goblin shaman. After some sketches I decided I would make a small display for the miniature. RiRiWillow mentioned that I should somehow make it so I could use the piece for gaming too. So I made a stone that the goblin stands on that also can be removed and placed onto another base.

A Tiny Taste

The stones and base were made out of Sculpey. After I cooked the clay I whittled it down like a piece of wood, trying to get some neat edges and create a little story for the stones. I based the miniature with a mixture of two types of grain, which will mostly be covered by thick grass. I'll go into more details when the piece is finished. I intend to prime the whole ordeal quite soon.

Site Design!

My wonderful girlfriend RiRiWillow designed a whole new layout for my site. The wood grain background is cozy, isn't it? She did the banner/header image also. The color scheme fits my personality. Great choices all around. Don't you think?

I'm currently in the midst of working on a few projects that I plan to post on the Dragon Painting Forum. I decided to sideline the Nurbald project. At least he is primed and ready to go under the brush. Here's a short list of items I'm working on right now.

Black Troll repair - sculpting a new head, mine came without one
Dragon Painting Monthly Competition - scenic goblin shaman, super psyched!
Colony of Ephorath - struggling to finish these guys...
Behemoth Orcs - going to be a long time til I start on this probably
Game Design - the beginning of something amazing, perhaps?

That's what I have lined up as of right now for sometime in the future. Might see them finished within the next week or you may not hear about it again for a few months. I'll be posting something more concrete tomorrow, I hope.
