Companion Blog Launched & Finished Jedi Girls

Since Webshots is WAAAY too expensive for their service and there are WAAAY too many ads on it, I've canceled my "Premium" membership there and decided to launch another blog with pics of newly painted figs for sale on ebay.

Minismith's Minis for Ebay

I've been painted figs to sell on ebay for some time now and I think it's helped my painting skills enhance some.

Also I finished (basing, sealing, etc.) and presented the Hasslefree "Not-Jedi" girls to my girls. Nothing fancy on the bases, though- I couldn't think of anything that would look worthwhile other than a big "M" that was half on one and half on the other. Kinda lame.

Horrible Halloween Minis- Birthday Secret Jedi Girls

Marissa and Mychala NEVER check here unless I'm right there and say "hey, you should see this mini I put on my blog. That said I would not be surprised if they both came here before their joint birthday party and saw these. But I haven't decided what to do with the bases yet (maybe a design that matches up on them so if they're side by side they look even cooler?)- so at least that will be a surprise...

Marissa turned 16 (?!?!!?) earlier in October, so she got the older of the two Hasslefree 'not-Jedi Kids' girls. For both of them I cut off the sword and used a bit of brass pin for the lightsabers. They're so small/short that the lightsaber had to stick over the edge of the base. It looks cool but was a BLEEP! to get the length just right.

My young twin Mychala turns 12 BLEEP! on my birthday in November. It sort of fits with her having the pigtails 'not-Jedi girl' since she's youngest. Plus the mini is shouting which kinda fits Mychala well because her 'blabber is full.' She got a blue cloak and lightsaber because that's her favorite color and she always gets what she wants. ;P

I hope they like them. Now I have to find a fig that I can use as a Jedi conversion of me so we can play some Jedi duels or something!

More horrible Halloween Minis- Lots

These are all up on eBay (or recently were-- seller name- minismith) but they sort of fit the Halloween theme. Enjoy!

First up an ancient mini from Heartbreaker. He's some sort of Undead warrior-king sorceror, with a swirling orb of doom, or something. He was recently touched up to make a bit more fancy-looking and rebased on a more fitting sized base.

This is the second version of this awesome early Kev White Void Militia Chick I've painted. It's similar to the first one because the first one looked pretty good...

A horrible scuttling Arakton Chick. Half-crab half-human she's ready to eat your brain...

And from the Warmachine line of figs, one of the Witches that came with that big orb of death thing.

These are all up on eBay (or recently were-- seler name- minismith) but they sort of fit the Halloween theme. Enjoy
