I am rebuilding the site from scratch. But I do have the images and text. Just not and an easily importable form...It is going to take time to fix. I am not going to re-add all of the news articles.

Most links will be broken until I can fix them. Some will not be fix - the old site is gone. No time to fix it.

I am getting really frustrated with my talking skull. I had bits of it working, then it quit working... I am thinking it is a combination of things. I think the Arduino I was using, overheated for some reason and the install of the Arduino IDE software has something wrong with it. I was able to get it to compile with the web version of the software, so I am pretty sure that is it. I had to order a couple of more bits for the mp3 player part. Once I get those in, I will pick it up again. It shouldn't take too long to get it all put together from there.

I also started painting minis again (First Paints)... Well, some not so mini I just finished one that is 135mm tall (Hannibal the monster), not the standard 25mm. I am 3d printing some and found a couple of mini boxed sets (two old Grenadier Dragon Lords sets!) that I hadn't painted yet. So, it is the start of a painting adventure using new paints (acrylics) and trying different things in basing and finishing that I haven't done before. At some point, I may reprint Hannibal at a higher resolution and do a better job painting. He has a lot of flesh tones showing and as I said before, I am really just learning how to use this new (to me) medium.

You will find them on the new Painting Projects page. I have also uploaded closeups (some are not too pretty!) to the gallery.

K2SO is done. Check out the project page. I finished it a few weeks ago, but I just got the pictures done. I am pretty sure I could have done it better. However, as in all things, hind sight is 20/20. I am learning how to paint again. I used to paint with enamels, but I am now using acrylics. Uses a totally different technique. The pictures are up in the K2SO gallery has been updated as well.

I have also been printing out some miniatures to paint. Check out the Lovecraftian 3d Prints - there are lots more pictures in the gallery. In case you don't know, I am a big H.P. Lovecraft fan. I love the Call of Cthulhu RPG published by Chaosium. So, I printed a few things and painted them up. Keep in mind most of the pictures are extreme closeups. You can even see the 3d printer layer lines. But like I said, I am learning again. Printing small has it's own set of challenges as does painting with acrylics - I used to paint mini's with enamels... way different.

I am starting up on the Talking Skull project again. I believe I have everything I need to finish it up, so it is next on the list.

TTFN,

Keith

I got a bit of painting done this weekend. I have finished the K2SO half-scale head and pictures taken. I am trying to get the time to finish up the project page. I went for a newer looking K2SO head, I really did not have the time to weather and beat it up... I kind of like it this way.

I also did a few more prints. I am a big H. P. Lovecraft fan and did some Cthulhu related prints. I am going to dump them all on one project page. The basic gallery is up, I haven't annotated anything either... another thing to do... These prints are getting me back into painting miniatures again.

TTFN,

Keith
