No, she paints dolls for people they already own... but the one I showed you is for sale now.. or may be (it's only the head though and it cost 100 USD/65 pounds I think) Pricey, but she charges more than that just for a face pianting (not includign the head) so it's a prety good deal.

Sounds nice, do you know where she lives?

It'll cost you less to get a doll painted by her than for me then! *jealous*

Also, I won these things on a 2p machine thing in a arcade, they're dragons gargoyle, I'm might paint them, what colour do you think I should paint them?
Here they are:

woah they're really cool! I was recently thinking of doing the same, buying cheapy plastic animals and repainting them like peoples' animal characters.
Hmm what about so they look like they're alive.... with red mettalic scales!

Thanks, it would be a good idea to get cheapy plastic figures, they just need to be a little strong plastic so you don't break 'em. XD
I shall paint with red metallic scales, I will show them to you when they're done! :D

So... I had a quick look at that site.... Your getting Fantasy or History sections, right?
I was looking for some Metallic red and, I don't know which one to use. I found 4 on GW, what one do you think I should use?
here they are:

Also I found one on Model Zone, I would be most likely to use this one:

Nice, show me them when your done!

All 4 of the GW one's are acryllic. o_O Anyway. I got paint no.51 from the local store I go to it's humbrol, I started painting the gargoyles, it said on the paint tin thing that they take 10 hours to dry because it's metallic. So It'll take me a while to do them. Also I need another colour, I can't paint them all, metallic red.

Me and my sister are getting into table gaming, we're building a campaign for Gamma Worlds (think Adventure Time with a few 20 sided dice) and I'm planning to make some terrain... need to go through the neighbors garbage to see if I can find an old table to use as a base XD
Not sure what scale to use yet though....

^I've never heard of Gamma Worlds, what are the characters sort of stuff?
If you're going to paint whatever they are yourself, I would recommend 1:72, for cheap but, still small, but are the cheaper choice. 1:32 is bigger, and more expensive. ^_^ That's taking from Airfix size, I may be completely wrong. :D

It's like DnD but post apocalyptic instead of medieval fantasy...
You can play as a human, a furry, a ghost, or a robot... And other things too!
I'm planning to make most things...so should I build bigger or smaller?
My sister is drawing the map right now !
Also one of my neighbors gave me her old table :D

^^^Depends how much more you want to pay. Bigger (1:32 in Airfix terms), is more expensive, and means smaller collection (unless you're made of money X)) and smaller (1:72) is cheaper, with bigger collection.
Or, if you've got all the stuff to make them with, you can just make them at any size, I would say... 1.50 cm at maximun... Sounds small, but it's quater my thumb, which is how I figure out stuff x3

I don't eel like paying a whole lot... unless it's super high quality... and that's one meter equals one half centimeter?

Sorry, I'm more used to the stupid American system XP
