Binary Star Yarnblob

This Yarnblob is nearly half the skein. These two could orbit each other and produce livable planets

End of the Skein Yarnblob

This skein of yarn had been Yarnblob-free until the very end. What you see is the last few yards, still in skein-shape, but locked in a fluffy Yarnblob that was just waiting for the right moment to appear...

WIP: Scourge Knight Mini

This fellow is giving me quite a difficult time. His armor is far too cool to paint plain black or metallic, so I'm trying to give him the appearance of fire or glow coming from within. This is my second attempt (yes, the first attempt was just as bad). The effect is still not how I want to it look, plus apparently my hands were exceptionally shaky so I'm going to strip him again (I think he enjoys it) and start over.

If the third time isn't the charm, I'm either going to paint him black and metallic or I'm going to strip him, prime him, and put him in timeout on the shelf until he can behave in a manner more consistent with his alignment.

You might notice his chain whip broke off.  That's because the Chaos Marine he was having a disagreement with had a bolter:

St. Patrick's Day Yarnblob

This sparkly Yarnblob gem was born at Starbucks this Irish day while waiting for one of my kids.
