I realized last night that there were a few great pics I had posted on Instagram, that never made it to the site.
This was from my last snow day. After driving home in treacherous conditions, I thought I'd drab a pic of Saint Crow that summed up what i was feeling. And like Saint Crow, I celebrated with a few drinks.
Recently picked up one of these miniature marquee style light up signs. I thought it might be fun in some post-apocalyptic pics. What you can’t see it that I’ve already repainted the sides and back with a bunch of rust and grime. Figured a good group photo was in order.
These are both of Never, the 2nd of the Radio Kings. She’s about 90% done, but couldn’t resist sharing this pics.
As I've mentioned before, I'm always on the lookout for things that, while maybe not their original intention, have a great use in 1/6 scale. I thought I'd snap off a few quick pictures tonight of some recent finds.
While I'm reluctant to endorse Hobby Lobby, I know I'm not the only one who was looking for these type of barrels. I believe it's actually a candle holder, but it's perfect in 1/6. I plan to repaint the 2 I got, but they still look pretty good as is.
Also, don't do what Saint Crow is doing below.
While I'm already buying pretty much everything that comes out in the 1/18 scale Acid Rain line, an nice bonus is that every figure comes in 1 of these cool plastic storage containers. The ones in the picture have already gone through a good blackwash and some weathering powders, but they're fantastic as is, and make perfect 1/6 military style crates.
These were sort of a special request, and acquired from Etsy seller OneSixthArsenal. I have no idea what they were intended for, but they're all glass with rubber stoppers, and are perfect in 1/6, His store in general has a bunch of rad stuff, and I highly recommend checking it out.
I had seen someone else make the recommendation (I believe on OSW) for a very decent, very cheap 1/6 scale skeleton. It came with The Bones Book and Skeleton, and was actually packaged in the display dome pictured. I had painted the base brass, and gave the skeleton a wash of brown paint, and I think he looks pretty good.
Dammit Crowther, stop fucking with everything you find.
Been in the works for months, building little details and making the paintings, but finally finished my Colossus the painter photoshoot. Check out the full gallery over here.
A few pics of my 1/6 Wolverine Weapon X helmet with led lighting. Thought I’d be farther along on the rest of the figure, but was excited how this came out.
Repainted eyes, take 2. Thought the pupils & irises were too big last time, so took another shot. I think I got it right this time.
Been wanting to take a crack at this for a while. 1:6 head with repainted eyes and freckles. I think both the irises and pupils may be a bit big, and may take another shot at it this weekend. But overall, feel pretty good about how things came out.
A good friend of mine recently picked me up one of the Play Arts Metal Gear D-Dog figures. The Play Arts figures are usually a smaller scale, but he looks perfect in 1/6! And it's so cool. Highly articulated (I don't think there are really any articulated animals available in 1/6) and comes with a bunch of great accessories. There are 3 heads (regular, eye-patch, and gas-mask) and each has interchangeable, articulated jaws (a regular mouth, one meant to hang open with the tongue lolling out, and one meant to hold an accessory, like the included knife or stun baton). He's in a sort of doggy stealth suit, which definitely works for a post apocalyptic setting. It would be nice to see animal figures with anywhere near this articulation without the outfit, but it's still incredibly cool. I haven't figured out what I'm doing yet, but I definitely plan to do some mods and repainting, and he should make a great addition to the world of the Radio Kings. But in the mean time, I thought it'd be fun to get some pics with Saint Crow.
Work in progress photo of my 1/6 post apocalyptic cowgirl. Not there yet, but I was really digging the look with the new respirator.
Currently repainting the 1/6 brick I’ve previously done. Wanted something a bit more weathered than the previous red. This is a small piece I had made for an art show, and I’ve broken it into 2 jagged pieces I thought would be good for photo shoots. Did this last weekend with paints I had on hand. Color looks great in pics, but looks a bit salmon in some light. Picked up some new paints this week, and going to take a crack at repainting all the loft brick next. Wish me luck!
