PostSubject: The great shelf reshuffle   Sun Dec 11, 2011 9:08 pm

Well, when I say "great"... It's not as drastic as it sounds, but I did move a couple shelves.
What happened was I decided my Stablemates and other mini horses should be moved into the horse cabinet. They used to live on a smaller shelf on top of a chest of drawers, and whenever I accidentally yanked too hard on a drawer some of them would fall over.
I'm still looking for good shelf risers, boxes on top of boxes aren't a very good substitute. Still, I did manage to get them all in there.

Moving the smaller horses meant I could put someone else in their old place, and at the same time I decided to move the shelves themselves. They fit nicely on top of the Massively Messy Card Catalog (one of the many perks of being a librarian), and the Collectas get to sit on top. As they're OFs, it doesn't matter as much when they get dusty, you can just rinse them off.
My custom drafters got to keep their cabinet, and the dinosaurs took over the other one. Ornithopods on top, spinosaurs in the middle, and tyrannosaurs in the basement. The Carnotaurus just wanted to be included in the photo...

Oh, and the birds got a root to sit on.

Looks great Sumo! I always love looking at your mini collection. Did you paint all of the customs yourself?

Aww, thanks! Very Happy Yup, I've painted them all myself. Currently I'm going through a lazy phase where I haven't painted a horse in months, but I think it's gradually returning to me. Maybe I'll even start showing again?

The blue jay is homemade and a lot rougher than it looks... I made it as a christmas present for a friend, so I should probably get it on its way soonish.

The crowned crane is my half-finished (and essentially aborted by now) attempt at a sculpt... Stupid head tassel and stupider legs! Embarassed

Arrakai - you're nearly right! In fact the discontinued one is the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) and the current model is an Iberian imperial eagle (A. adalberti), which may be a subspecies of the imperial eagle (A. heliaca) which in turn is closely related - and very similar, but darker and more contrasty in color - to the golden eagle.
