Ring in the New Year!

It's time to give 2012 the boot and welcome in 2013. For the first time since our daughter was born, the Hubby and I will have the house to ourselves for New Years Eve.  The Spawn has plans with friends so we're going to get down and get funky with our bad selves!


And after 20 years of having kids around the house, this is what it's' going to feel like at my place tonight!

I would like to end the year with one serious moment and say "Thank You" to my Super Secret Santa, Ian over at The Blog With No Name.  This year, The Hubby and I had no money for Christmas presents and only a handful of people knew that. One of those people was Ian and the Saturday before Christmas a package arrived at my house. In that package was lead, lead to paint, lead to make a painter happy, lead that brought tears to my eyes. 

Ian was so thoughtful that he remembered a comment I made on his blog months ago about wanting to one day paint an elephant-I now have an elephant to paint. Many of you know of my love for Highlanders, I now have a Highlander to paint. Many of you know I have no static grass for basing. I now have that grass.  And many of you know of my fear of 6mm figures, I now have 6mm figures to paint (that's the part that made me cry).

It's New Years Eve people, so turn off those computers, grab a hold of someone you love and love them for all it's worth. I know I will.

Closed for the Holidays

Through the years
we all will 
be together,
if the fates allow
hang a shinging
star upon the highest bow
and...


Have yourselves
a Merry Christmas.

Comments have been disabled due to a high amount of spam recently. I don't want to come back from the Holiday and have to clean up a mess!!

Enjoy your time with your families and your friends. I know I will.

Brother Barnabas the Boob

So many of life's tragic stories begins with the actions of a single idiot. This story is no exception.

Brother Barnabas, a monk serving with the Order of Fries, was an ambitious man with a small mind. Desirous of a life of comfort, the monk began removing the finger bones from corpses and selling them as relics from the hand of Saint Agatha of Christie.  It wasn't long before Bishop Bellevue caught him, stripped him of his orders and threw him out into the countryside.


Where he became a Hedge Knight.


And not a very good Hedge Knight either as he kept turning his back on his enemies.

I really enjoyed painting this guy up. He's a 28mm sculpt from Hell Dorado with loads of character.

I've included a picture to show scale for those of you who have never seen a tabletop miniature.


I did the basing using Paprika and Parsley-cheap, quick and easy.  The scenery I scratchbuilt some time ago.

Some of you may have noticed that my blog has had a Holiday makeover. I'd like to thank my friend Dez from The Hollywood Spy for designing the banner and the background. I may have to do some tinkering with it after Dezzy sees it later today as I'm not certain if I got the background in the right way.

Well folks it's Wednesday and we're halfway between the place we were and the place we want to be. So put on your most comfortable pair of trainers and amble on down the road at a slow pace enjoying the scenery along the way. I know I will.

The Dark Side of Evolution

The common Bushwoolie of the genus Bushwooligus Exampanitus evolved to thrive in a heavily forested environment.  Small in stature, the Bushwoolie has a dark green/blue spiky coat that enables it to blend in, thereby avoiding detection by predators. An herbivore, it's diet consists mainly of the woody stems of low hanging deciduous bushes.  Because the god that created it was a wee bit drunk at the time, he neglected to provide the Bushwoolie the enzymes necessary to digest the tough wood of the branches.


The species would have died out entirely had it not been for the curious nature possessed by one little Bushwoolie.  Tired of living with indigestion the little guy began chewing on the base of a highly toxic mushroom. Within minutes his tummy ache ceased and he began to experience a sense of well-being that transported him into another realm.  Soon all the Bushwoolies began eating toxic mushrooms and enjoyed feeling groovy. 

As is often the case with evolution, there was a side benefit for the Bushwoolie.  Over time, the toxins built up in it's bloodstream providing an extra determent to potential predators, further ensuring the success of the species.


The fearsome looking mouth of the Bushwoolie, which had been designed as nothing more than a display to ward off predators, was now deadly. 

And all would have been well had the behavior of Man been factored into the equation. But evolution doesn't think, it just does. For Man, in his never ending desire to expand his territory, would one day encounter the Bushwoolie. The consequences would be dire.

Well folks it's Friday and time to shake the dust of the week off your boots.  Whatever you decide to do this weekend, do it with a light heart and a smile on your face. I know I will.

Suzie Swagger

Suzie Swagger

Bronze skinned
she sits,
a promise 
on your bed
glowing.

With one hand
your brow
she strokes
while 
with the 
other it's
your death
she's dealing.

                                                                           O'Leary, Anne 12-04-12


Suzie Swagger, better known as Mistress of the Seas, commanded a fleet of five ships. Unlike her contemporaries, Suizie refused to cut her hair or dress like a man in order to walk the boards of any sailing ship.  So fluid was her grace when wielding a scimitar men were known to stop in the act of dying just to gaze at her. She took command of her first ship after her husband came to a quick stop after a short drop at the hands of  Jack Ketch. 

No death has ever been recorded for Suzie and some claim to have seen the blue of her eyes looking out from the prow of a ghostly ship that still sails the waters of the Pirate Round.






 I'm pretty sure that this little lady won't have any problems whacking the head off a zombie when the time comes.

I've got all the Bushwoolies painted up and on Friday, I'll be writing about the creation and evolution of the little critters.

Well folks it's Wednesday also known as Hump Day. So if you're reading this from prison, don't bend over to pick up the soap. I know I wouldn't.

The Four Horses of Essex

Remember way back when I was talking about painting some Essex figures? Well I haven't forgotten. They're amongst the ever growing hodgepodge of a pile that it my painting table.  I've previously posted one from a set of four and here are the other three in the set.

These are 15mm horses from Essex European Armies 1660-1745.  They came with a limber, which I painted but can't post because I lost the bloody wheels.





Too show the difference in scale between a 32mm and a 15mm I thought I'd show this picture.


It is finally getting easier for me to work with different scales. I now paint 15mm, 18mm, 20mm. 25mm, 28mm and 32mm.  That leaves 6mm, 10mm and 54mm for me to learn one day.

And I'd like to say

THANK YOU

 
To Thanos over at Mininiatures and Terrain for nominating me for a Liebster Blog award.  

Those of us that follow Thanos know how talented he is and we know how creative he is when it comes to scratch building terrain.  I've gotten to know him through comments and through Facebook and was surprised to discover that he does not consider himself an artist.  And those of you who know me know that this kind of a response generally prompts me to do something. 

I've written a character into my story called Thano's Muse. She's a stunning figure sculpted by the renowned Tom Meier and I'm putting my heart and my soul into her. Perhaps she can help all of the great painters that I follow and learn from understand that what they do is art.

Well it's Sunday folks and that's the day I give thanks for the life that I have, the roof over my head and every scrap of food that's on my plate.  So get up off that couch, turn off the telly and do something that makes you feel alive. I know I will.

Little Wing

As the baby of the family, Little Wing is a spoiled brat. She was a bit of an "accident", arriving in the 6th century of her Fathers life. Filled with menace and mirth, Little Wing brought disruption to the existing family hierarchy.  "A little competition among them won't hurt a thing," their Father could be heard muttering "Maybe they'll evolve"

She's from Dark Sword and is a 15mm sculpt done by Larry Elmore. The base is 30mm and is from Wyrd Miniatures.

That completes the Little Monster siblings. And I like these little guys so well, I'm putting them in a little spin-off short story of their own.  The working title of that piece is "On the Origins of Zombies". It will only take a few posts to tell the tale and I'm still painting figures for "The Wyrm of Connemara"

The painters and gamers out there know exactly why I'm taking this side-trip. Something shiny has caught my eye and I have to paint it NOW.

This is a 15mm Bushwoolie sculpted by Tom Meier and available at his online store at Thunderbolt Mountain. I have three of these little guys in different poses and this is one of them.


Now a couple of Bushwoolies aren't enough to justify the trouble of a short story. There's also this figure.


This is a teaser photo of the backside of the heroine of my story, Suzie Swagger.  If you want to see the front-side and find out what Little Wing, some Bushwoolies and a Pirate babe have to do with the origins of Zombies, you'll have to tune in next week.

It's Wednesday folks and for some people that means it's time to do a little whinging and moaning about their lives. I say stuff a sock in it and focus on something positive. I know I will.

Dirty Little Monsters

Two of Naz T. Habit's siblings have made their way off the painting table. Now you may notice that they don't resemble Naz T in the least. You might even say they're not the same specie of monster so there's no way they could be siblings. And further, they don't even have the same surname. A conundrum you say? Perhaps, but in the world of my storybook anything is possible and the rules of evolution have been suspended.

First up we have Phat A. Nevil and he's an 18mm figure from Hell Dorado.



Next we have Baba O'Really, the apple of her Fathers eye. She is an 18mm figure from Dark Sword and was sculpted by Larry Elmore.



These small figures are really forcing me to learn how to push the highlights way up. Each time I took a test photo, I'd see that the detail wasn't visible. And it was back to the painting table with them for more highlighting. I finally took the highest points up to a near white to really bring out the folds in the clothing.

The last of the Little Monster family is on the painting table now and she's a Winged Cat Demon and she's a petite 15mm figure.  She's really difficult to paint, but she's such a mixture of beauty and menace that I'm really enjoying her. I like her so well, I've put her on a scenic base (shock, horror!!).

Please remember that I'm having surgery tomorrow and that I will not be commenting after close of business today until I fell well enough to return to Blogger.

I'd like to wish all the Americans out there a Happy Thanksgiving. May you all have football, food and family fun this Thursday coming.

Paying It Forward

I was recently given the Liebster Blog Award by Vincent at Figurine Passion. This means a great deal to me as it came from a fellow painter and a painter that I have the deepest respect for. I'm still new to the painting/gaming community and your acceptance of me is greatly appreciated.


According to the rules of the award, I am to pick five of my fellow bloggers to pass the award on to-paying the kindness shown to me forward.

Kris over at Wargames and Railroads There were many painters that inspired me to paint, but only one that made it possible and that's Kris. He gave me my first set of paints, a large set of paints. I didn't ask him, he offered out of nowhere and out of kindness. He also taught me, via email on those first figures. When I paint, I always hope to please my first teacher.

Michael at  28mm Victorian Warfare  Michael is as proper a British gentleman as you'd hope to meet. What he doesn't know is that I lurked on his page for months and months before I worked up the courage to comment and follow him.  Oh yes, I did. I read all of your posts Sir Michael, all the way back to the first one.  And my favorites were the dinosaur figures as they showed talent, creativity and a playful spirit.

Jay at Jay's Miniature Enterprises  Jay is a painter, a sculptor, a gamer and a man of integrity. I have so much fun visiting Jay's place and he has always made me feel welcome. Right now he's sculpting a squadron of flying mutant pigs and those of us who follow him eagerly await their first mission. It was a good day indeed when I found his page.

Tamisin at Wargaming Girl  Tamisin is the rarest of creatures- A girl that games, knows her history, paints and is accepted by the men as an equal in the gaming world.  I'm not the kind of girl that hangs out with girls. I don't talk about fashion, hair or makeup so finding female friends is difficult for me. Tamisin is the kind of woman I could share a pint with and talk with into the wee hours.

Marzio at  Fog Soldiers Blog  When you're a new painter like I am, you need mentors. People who paint professionally and are willing to share what they know are valuable. I feel privileged to have come to know a painter of this calibre and am grateful that he does so many tutorials on his page. He has also been unfailingly kind to me and gives me encouragement to become a better painter.

I am passing this award along with a no-strings-attached policy. No one is under any obligation to mention me in a post or to pass this award on. I have chosen to do so in gratitude to the person that I received it from. 

Today is Sunday folks and for me that's a day of joy, a day to be thankful for the life that flows within my veins.  So today lay aside your troubles and celebrate your existence.  I know I will.

Where I've Been and Where I'll Be

Last week my attendance on Blogger was spotty and I was late getting to some peoples posts and missed some posts completely.  For that I am sorry. I do my best to be a good follower, but sometimes fall short of the mark.  Because I may have hurt some peoples feelings, I'm going to explain where I was and where I will be next week.


Since my accident with the tram in 2004, I've had 3 reconstructive surgeries on my right knee. I had the last one done in 2007 with the understanding that I would need to have debri and spicules removed every two years. It has been five years since I've had that done, so the knee is in pretty bad shape right now and I am in constant pain. I have not however, allowed that pain to limit my life. I garden, I play drums, I do housework and I take long walks with my dogs.

I spent most of last week at surgeons having x-rays and MRI's which caused me to be late or to miss posts. I have surgery scheduled for Tuesday November 20th and I absolutely will not be commenting on blogs following Monday.  I will return to blogger when I am able. I desperately need people to understand this. To that end,  I will be republishing this post until I know everyone has seen it.

I will post some figures on Monday, and I will be in to comment through Monday.

Thank you.

It's Innocent Allure by a Nose

The results are in and Innocent Allure was the winner in Anne's Epic Babe Challenge. It wasn't so much a "nose" that she won by either, it was more like, well you know what I mean.

Because it was apparent to me early on that Fran's babe was going to win, I began to feel really bad for Ray.  I mean  Ray's a nice guy so he should win something as well.  So that's when I came up with the idea of a Consolation Babe.  And here she is.


Now she may not be much to look at, but she'll keep a man warm on a cold winters night.  And because I know you have a thing for Polish women Ray, I've decided to name her Franziska Ania Siwczyk.

Well it's Monday folks and the beginning of what  I'm sure will be a really shite filled week.  So you might as well pop a tab on a cold one, put up your feet and turn the jams up really loud. I know I will.

Melanie the Seer of Ireland

When a dragon returns to Ireland. bringing death and destruction, the people of the village need answers.  "From where did this horror come?" and "How can we possibly hope to defeat this evil?"  They turn to the only person who can help them find the knowledge they seek-Melanie. the Seer of Ireland.

This is a 32mm scale figure from Dark Sword and was sculpted by the late Dennis Mize, the man whose sculpts Dark Sword was founded upon.  It was a pleasure to paint a figure sculpted by him.




She turned out to be an important piece for me. Finally, I got the highlights high enough and I felt confident for the first time when I was drybrushing. The sculpt itself had beautiful lines and as always the casting at Dark Sword is superior.

Without the talent of the sculptor, we who paint are nothing. The great sculptor, Tom Meier, recently did a tribute sculpt for Dennis. Please do yourself a favor and click on the link to see this magnificent piece of work --Tribute Sculpt.  I cannot post the picture on blogger because part of the sculpt features a fully nude female. It is tasteful, I assure you.

It's Friday folks and we've all survived to see the end of another week.  So get on out there and shake your tail feathers this weekend.  I know I will.

Deadly Elegance or Innocent Allure

Welcome to Anne's Epic Babe Challenge where you get to decide which babe is the sexiest. Is it the babe I painted for Ray or will it be Fran's babe that takes your breath away?

First up we have Ray's babe and I chose her because Rousell has a bit of thing for Ms. Zooey Deschanel, a dark beauty who favors a vintage style.  The figure is from Hell Dorado and is 28mm scale.  I think she has a Deadly Elegance.




If you know Fran, you know he likes two things above all else in a woman and this babe has those two things in spades.  She's from Hasslefree Miniatures and is 25mm scale. I wanted to give this babe an Innocent Allure. The look of a sex kitten-innocent on the outside, naughty on the inside. I freehand painted the scrollwork on the skirt.





At the top of my right sidebar you'll find a poll where you can vote for either Deadly Elegance or for Innocent Allure.  The polls will be open until 12:00 a.m. Saturday November 10th GMT.  The winner will be announced on November 12th. In the event of a tie, The Hubby has the tie breaking vote.

So you decide, will it be Ray or will it be Fran who walks away with the Bonus Babe? Either way, I win because I bought the Bonus Babe on Saturday, which is what this is all about in the first place.

This post has been done with autopost. I had a difficult day yesterday and  I must get some sleep. I will be around to comment and read blogs in a few hours. Please take no offense if I'm running late.

Anne's Epic Babe Challenge

I've had my eye on a figure for the last month, but have had no good reason to buy her.


Isn't she pretty? Well pretty won't cut it with The Hubby so I've had to create a reason to buy her. Hence my Epic Babe vs Babe Challenge.

As part of my story, "The Wyrm of Connemara" I've painted a babe for both Fran and Ray's characters. One is a pale beauty from Hasslefree Miniatures and the other a dark temptress from Hell Dorado. Both figures are very sexy. But you know those two. as soon as they see their babes, they'll start arguing about who's babe is the sexiest.  And none of us wants to put up with that now do we?

This Challenge is designed to prevent the inevitable bickering between those boys by allowing you and the guys at The Miniatures Page (yes, I've been moonlighting) to vote on which babe is the sexiest. And it allows me to buy the figure I want. "How is that?" you ask. Well this is how.

The new figure is a "bonus babe" If Ray's babe wins the contest, then I'll write an "encounter" between his character and the "bonus babe" into my story. And likewise for Fran's character if his babe should win. Either way, I win. And in the end that's all that really matters to me.

On Wednesday, November 7th, I'll be posting pictures of both babes and there will be a poll in my right sidebar to allow for voting. The polls will be open until Saturday, November 9th and the winner will be announced on Monday, November 12th.

I won't be posting anything between now and the 7th and I may not be in much as I've got new music that I have to learn.

Well folks it's Friday and it's been a heck of  a week for everyone around the globe. Now it's time to put the world and all it's problems on the top shelf and do something that really trips your trigger. I know I will.

Orlin, The Eternal King of Canada

Orlin, a god and the Eternal King of Canada is engaged in a centuries old struggle with Anne of Eire. Not satisfied with stealing her life, the feline god is bent on the destruction of her homeland. To this end, hundreds of years ago, Orlin began gathering the last eggs of Dragonkind.  In the frozen wastelands of Canada he hatched forth a single Wyrm to do his bidding.

The character of Orlin is being played by Pat Hatt from Rhyme Time.

The figure is from Dark Sword is 32mm scale and was sculpted by Dave Summers.



I've posted a lot this week and I thought to myself "Anne, you could really be boring people by asking them to comment on your blog so many times in one week." And I know I hate to be bored, so naturally that caused me to think of one word-Challenge. Yes folks it's time for another one of Anne's Spontaneous Wacky Challenges.

This Challenge is so spontaneous that the people involved don't even know they're involved. So stop on by tomorrow for details on this Epic Event.

A Warrior in Green and a Thank You

I'd like to begin by saying Thank You to everyone who stopped by and commented on my post yesterday. That first post back with a figure was an important one for me and I am touched that you took the time to welcome me back and to encourage me to continue to paint. As a painter, a sense of shared community has come to mean a great deal to me.

Today I have another figure for my story "The Wyrm of Connemara". His name is Dez for my friend at The Hollywood Spy and his role in the story is Top Secret. I will reveal this much, he's on the Irish side of things.

He's from Dark Sword, is 32mm scale and was sculpted by Jeff Grace.




I remember my initial frustration with painting the folds on cloaks. The struggle to find the mid-point between the low points and the high points was a difficult thing for me.  I think I have finally achieved something I can be pleased with on this cloak.

I also tried to improve my freehand skills by painting a pattern on the hem. While not perfect, it is more complex than the last scrollwork I did.

Finally, this figure has a twin. I have painted this figure twice, one as you see here all light and bright and another, darker version.  I'll get around to posting his twin sometime in the future and will post them side-by-side.

Well folks it's Tuesday and in Bloggerland, that means a slow and quiet day. So kick back and enjoy the day. I know I will.

He's a Naz T. Habit

This is my fourth post for the month of October and I know that's a bit of overkill for me, but I thought I'd really push my blogging skills to the limit here.

This little guy is a 20mm sculpt from Dark Sword and he's going to be making an appearance along with a couple of his mates in my story "They Wyrm of Connemara"



His name is Naz T. Habit, a name loaned to me by The Laughing Ferret.  Now there's a reason for that, but as much as I'd like to share it with you, I can't because it's Top Secret.

The base won't be painted until I put him in the terrain I'm building. In the background you can see the mushrooms I sculpted and I think they'll go well with him.  I've also sculpted an oversized flower with a face to go into the scenery and I just need to paint it.

I've gotten 11 figures off the painting table this month and for me that's a record number. I'll be getting them posted as my life permits and will begin working in earnest on terrain shortly.

I'd like to take a moment and give my best wishes to those who are living on the East Coast of the United States as they prepare for Hurricane Sandy to make her arrival.  May you all be well as the storm passes.

There and Back Again-A Drummers Tale


I've been asked a lot of questions about what it's like to play out and  I'm going to try to answer those questions.  But I can only do that from my perspective, that of a working drummer in a jazz band with no tales of drunken debauchery to tell.


I would like you all to get the image of rock band and a rock setting completely out of your head. Jazz clubs, jazz bands and jazz musicians are distinctly different from rock-the terms cannot be used interchangeably. I'm playing music written by people like Miles Davis and John ColtraneSidney Bechet and Charlie "Bird" Parker. This requires a particular set of skills and the music defines the experience. Click on the links and give some of these greats a listen so you can understand what I'm talking about.

So what's it like "out there"? It's not what most people think it is. As the drummer, I'm seated in the back, behind a row of cymbals and my view is the back of the horn players heads.  I don't see the audience, which is fine by me because I like to play with my head down and my eyes closed. Audience contact is something I'm not interested in. I'm interested in creating the musical bridge with the bass player that gives the other musicians the freedom to play what they want, whenever they want and to come back together in perfect time.

In a jazz club, the people are there to listen, they know the music and they want improvisation. They do not want a note for note rendition of something they heard on an album as that would be boring.  Also, it is not uncommon for other musicians to be in the audience and when a girl drummer blows into town more musicians have a way of turning up. Which leads to the best part of the night.

After the place closes all those musicians get together and play with no one but the bartender to listen. Even after 2 three hour sets, the energy is still there and the musical "conversation" that takes places is richer and more interesting than it was with a paying audience.  These other musicians also solve the pesky problem of "where are we going to sleep tonight".  They'll put you up for a few days and feed you as well.  Otherwise you're either sleeping in a van or your staying in a cheap roach motel, hardly a glamorous experience.

I want to address the question about what happens when a guy hits on me when I'm playing out. It rarely happens and for several reasons. I'm not personable when I'm playing, I don't accept drinks from men and I'm always within eyeshot of a bandmate.  Guys in a band don't like it when men approach their drummer and they don't really let people near me. I'm protected by four guys, I'm perfectly safe out there and the Hubby knows it.  My bandmates would never lay a hand on me as they respect me as a musician and I won't tolerate anything less than that.

Now enough of that business. You may have noticed that my blog has had a makeover. I'd like to thank my friend Dezz for making the banner and for helping me with the color scheme.


Next week I'll be back to posting figures as I've gotten 11 of them off the painting table and I'm keen to get them up here.

It's Sunday folks and that means the weekend isn't over yet. So if you haven't made merry, there's still time left for it.  Have yourselves a great day. I know I will.

NOTE: I TRIED AUTOPOSTING THIS BLOODY THING AND APPARENTLY THAT DIDN'T WORK AS ONLY A TITLE SHOWED UP AND NO FECKING POST. I'M SORRY FOR THAT!

Late Nights And Bad Food

Being without income for the last year and a half has been difficult, but as Albert Einstein said "In adversity there is opportunity"  So in order to bring some income into the house I recently decided to start playing out again and am doing some pick up work with a jazz band.


It's only 3 nights a week and only till the end of the month. It involves a bit of travelling, but the money is good and so is the band.  The only negative aspects to playing out is setting up equipment and eating really bad road food. However, the change of pace is doing me some good and the sax player is fantastic. The Hubby is not with me as he can't travel anymore, but I do come home every other day.

I'll be around to make a few comments, then I've got to go as I'm at McDonalds eating really bad food.

At Peace While Painting

In this life it is rare to find such a thing as a peaceful place, a place where contentment rather than happiness holds sway.  Happy is a high emotion and can rarely be sustained for more than a few hours and as such is over rated. Contentment is the greater thing, for it is quieter and more constant a companion when it arrives.

Of late I have been at peace while painting and find myself content to live each moment as it occurs. And that is why I have been absent from blogger. For the hustle and bustle of posting, replying and commenting would steal time from me, time that I do not wish to part with as of yet.


Lost with the miniature, using the brush to tease out the character that lies within the sculpt is a fine thing indeed. This is a close-up of just one of the pieces I have completed in the last week. And I am not ready to post the figure just yet. Next week, perhaps.


Color aplenty remains in my gardens and while there are still pictures like this to take, I'll be there to take them.  I enjoy my time on blogger but right now, I'm enjoying my real life more.

I may post next week as I have completed figures and a product review to do. If my days remain as pleasant as they are right now, I won't be in next week.  But I'll be back, because nothing lasts forever.

All photographs are Digimarked. Please do not download my work without my permission.
