Deathclaw Done and Dusty

  1. Your deathclaw came out looking nice. I think if one ran into that in a dark alley, the old saw, “You’re going to need a bigger gun,” comes to mind (with apologies to Jaws.) Also glad you are having fun with your other hobbies, such as card collecting. Good luck with your upcoming move.

    1. Thanks, Ann! They are certainly dangerous and something where even with a big gun, they still might kill you in Fallout. I hope the move goes well too. I’m looking forward to getting it done and settling into the new place πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, mate! Work certainly ebbs and flows doesn’t it? It was getting better until the last couple of weeks and now I’m headed back into difficult times it would seem. Hopefully it gets better for both of us sooner than later πŸ™‚

  2. That is one scary dude! One small comment if I may, I feel the tire on the base is too shiny, you did your usual great job on highlights on it but maybe a flat black would be more fitting for a tire?
    I hope you have better mail delivery at your new condo, I’ve been having my own issues with deliveries.
    Looking forward to Pulp Alley, that is one genre that keep tempting me.

    1. I completely agree, Bret. Its actually the satiny varnish you’re seeing there and not the paint colors. I may hit the tire with some ultra matte varnish to try and tone that down a bit more as it is clearly too strong when under lights.

      Sorry to hear about your mail issues and I hope they get better soon. Things have been better for me lately but I feel like things are still touch and go or maybe the last year or so has just traumatized me.

      Speaking of the mail, Pulp Alley surprised me and showed up today in the mail so I’ve already started reading it. I’m really liking what I’ve seen thus far so expect to see more about it soon.

  3. Great work onthe Deathclaw, it really does look superb. Work sadly has its ups and downs, not just for pilots but for all of us. When the bad days are more frequent than the good ones then maybe it is time to move on. Life’s to short and we work for most of our lives so no point being unhappy if it can be avoided.

    1. Thanks, mate and honestly, I couldn’t say it any better than that. I’ve been tallying the bad days a bit more lately but I’m trying to take the long view too. I’m going to give it a bit more time and go from there, I figure. I appreciate you sharing your insight and glad to hear someone else thinks like me too! πŸ™‚

  4. Oooh, excellent work on that monstrous model! He really is a scary looking bugger, and you’re right about the face being terrifying. Great work on the base, too!

  5. Wonderful work on the Deathclaw Jeff, you really brought the whole piece together. Hope the move goes smoothly, and a wise decision holding off on ordering before the move.
    Sorry to hear about the work situation, and hope it improves quickly for you

    1. Thanks, Dave! πŸ™‚ Fingers crossed on the move and that things get better at work as well. We all go through our ups and downs but I’m hoping things start moving in a better direction again soon.

    1. Thank you for the kinds words on the painting. I’m still in the get the paperwork done phase which will soon be replaced by the scramble to do everything you need to do to actually move phase. No need to mention all of the other phases that follow as we’ll both be experiencing the pain of those soon enough πŸ˜€

  6. Deathclaw really has come out well, Jeff! πŸ™‚ I tend to avoid larger models for the reasons you mention – I can maybe get away with larger base sizes/areas, but not combined with height as well! I don’t collect cards, but they look good!

    1. You and me both, John! And now I know how you have all those vehicles kicking around too πŸ˜‰ I appreciate you taking a look at the cards all the same. I know it is not the most popular thing I put in my posts so I appreciate anyone who will humor me πŸ˜€

  7. Deathclaw looks great Jeff; especially like the face and the way you’ve done the mouth.
    Love the Moon Knight cards, makes want to search some Marvel ones out myself.
    I’ve got a small collection, mostly 1930’s themed to go with the period of our house, though I haven’t quite gotten around to displaying them yet (it’s only been 7 years!)😁

    1. Thank you for the kind words and I’m glad that someone enjoyed the cards! I know there isn’t a strong overlap between card collecting and miniatures (other than that both will eat up all your money!) so it is always nice to hear that someone enjoys seeing them. Not that I’m likely to stop sharing mine regardless πŸ˜€ You should definitely display your collection. They sound pretty cool to me!

  8. The deathclaw really looks ferocious! And I appreciate the pic with the other miniature to bring it into scale. I do like big monsters. πŸ˜€

    Good luck with your move. It’s a lot of work I’m finding out again but maybe you’re more organized than I am. How are you finding pulp alley ?

    1. Monsters do look great on the table when they scale like the Deathclaw does, so I can’t argue you with you there!

      Once I get all the paperwork done, the real pain of moving begins. We don’t have things super organized here and will probably find a lot of stuff we had to jam in a closet that we didn’t even know we had anymore because that is how cramped things are here :/

      Pulp Alley is a pretty good looking rulebook. I’ve still got more to read in it but it looks to be worth the money to me so far. I’ll write up something about it once I have had a chance to read through it all.
