Lots of upcoming finished paintings, and more

This is a quick update, and a more thorough one will be coming up soon!

Sorry its been so long between posts, but I've been getting a lot done.  I no longer have internet at my apartment, in part because it was so expensive where I live, and also because I am planning a move at the end of this month.  Since there hasn't been internet in over two months, me getting on the laptop to do much of anything has been limited to when I am at my sister's house.

I've been working of getting as many of my miniatures painted as I can before having to pack them up for the move.  I finally caved and bought a big can of primer, so things have actually gotten done!  Also, better paint brushes and black and white paints have also been acquired.  Woo!

All of my dwarves, elves and gnomes have now been primed, just need to finish priming the animals I have, and then priming will be complete!  Pictures will be coming in the next two posts.

I also went on a long journey in the search for naked miniatures.  Don't ask why it came up, because I honestly don't know why I started the search.  But, after seeing plenty of beautifully painted naked female miniatures, I started to search for naked males too.  Let me tell you, naked male miniatures are a hard thing to find.  I understand that the market is aimed primarily towards male wargamers, but there is an increase of women getting into the hobby.  I don't paint my miniatures to wargame, just for the art of painting them because I find it relaxing and fun.

So, my search began.... and it was a long search too.  Without very many results.  I searched through various forums, read other posts that people made, got offended by the rude comments that some people have made in response to people asking for nude males, and finally found some that were not barbarians.

Finally.

Granted... the majority of the nekkid ones I have are not human.... yay for Incubi and Succubi!

Hasslefree Miniatures, you are one of my favorite companies by far at this point.  If only it wasn't so expensive to buy the minis!

So, in conclusion for this part, I have a selection of naked males and females that are painted up as well as elves, dwarves, and gnomes.  Awww yeah.

I have also finished up a cross stitch!  It has taken over a year, but the Mario Alphabet Sampler for my friend's baby Leon has been completed!  Pictures of that will be uploaded sometime next week.

My next project is to make a light box so I can get better pictures of the miniatures that have been painted (otherwise I would have uploaded in this post.)

A post with Stonehaven minis that I have painted will be uploaded early next week.  And then, in a separate post, an NSFW post will be uploaded with all the naked creatures in case anyone wants to not see them.

Until next week!!!  But, for a sneak peak of what has happened, check out my Instagram @seryfyre  There may be a TARDIS and some Weeping Angels there.....
