Cthulu and the Mythos ARISE!

For those that didn't pledge to the Reaper Kick Starter....shame on you!!!!

It wasn't until the bonus stuff showed and I saw the Mythos, Chronoscope and such appear that I was drawn in to the fold. Then at the very end CTHULU appeared and crashed the Kickstarter server with the Elder Sign! And just for $10 more for an 8" Cthulu and another $10 for the Mythos set...yea, made my mouth water....Bones are nice products and makes things cheaper than the metal versions....sure some of the Reaper stuff was recasts and yea, I will be trading some...but still I have tons of goodies to add to Strange Aeons and Supersystem 3 games!

Another New Lurker

This is the Glom from the Reaper line....I figure this thing would make a nice zombie, conglomerate or even a blasphemous construct to name a few ideas...

RIP Lucas

Well, I am going to try to keep posting something up but I have not been in the hobby mood for the past few days dealing with one of my dogs. Today we had to make the hardest choice which was to put him to sleep after several sleepless nights of barking, pacing, staring off into space and being just unsettled.
Sadly, Lucas had a cognitive degenerative disorder (his mind was slowly slipping and simple things was no longer processing the way they should normally). The vet also added that based upon some other signs he felt he was in the early stages of cancer as well. We did the right thing, but it is still painful as hell to make this choice. He ate fine, he slept fine (when he did), was active and had no issues walking other than the disorder that had been slowly building up over the years. Even the tranquilizers we tried for him only worked for a short time before the meds was no longer helping.
Lucas was a good dog with a few faults but that is the way always with animals and has enjoyed 10+ years with my wife and me along with his adopted brother Wally W from the Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia and has given us so many great memories and adventures that I recall like they were yesterday. Born in Savannah, Georgia and found wandering the streets as a puppy taken in by the Rescue. He had a cold and had obvious signs of abuse including a broken tail and one leg that was slightly off. My wife fell in love with the little guy and I worked hard behind her back to surprise her on the day we was to pick him up. Instead, my wife was greeted an hour before the end of her work day with a cute basset puppy standing outside with large brown eyes. Since then he has endured adventures with my wife and I including taking a car trip to Florida with no AC and having a car breakdown by the highway and given a ride by a total stranger picking up a couple with a fur ball in tow.  Oh the stories could continue….
I will make effort to keep producing some good content as I get over the loss to our family.
I will miss you little guy!

Painting Update: New Lurker - Fire Daemon

Well, finished up another Lurker tonight, a Fire Elemental that is from the Reaper line that I plan to use as a Fire Daemon (in Strange Aeons) and as a Super Villain in Super System 3 games.

I went and darkened some of the grass around him like it was burned...

I worked with a new painting style this time on how to paint flames and added my own twist. I think perhaps I could have gone more orange in the mid and less red, but I had more reds to work with than oranges...

The concept was simple in the article and how I wanted to paint this, which is to paint this as close to a true fire as possible. Thus towards the bottom, more white/yellow with a building of yellow/orange to a orange/red with a red ending on top.

Here is the link, a very good painting tutorial....
