So I came across a can of flexible rubber coating while in Home Depot last weekend. It’s different from those that I seen before in that it’s white, and it’s not meant to be peeled off. I used to get my mats from theterrainguy.com, but he’s since close…

I finished up the Orlocks I played with at Adepticon this past week. My Juves, Heavy Bolter and second leader will be benched until I circle back around again. I’m pretty happy with how these came out. At somepoint I might try to paint some road lines …

Some shots from a few of my Adepticon events this year. First up is the Legends of the Old West: Battle at the Little Bighorn event. All the terrain and figs were provided. I took control of Captain Benteen and a few of us his men. We actually managed …

They weren’t 100% finished for Adepticon but they were pretty close. I finished up six of the gangers tonight, taking care of the touch-ups and a few final highlights. I went very light on the gun highlights, just to see how it would work.

Some shots from HAVOC XXX. I’ve been going for seven years now I think, it’s a fun little con that’s less than a 10 minute drive for me.

I’ve been slacking in the picture department but there’s been slow progress. The hair, jeans, and black and brown leather is done, plus I’ve started on the red. I’m hoping to finish the red over the weekend, after that it’s onto the metal and weapons. …

I finished the t-shirts this week and moved on to the jeans. Most of them are half-way done, I’ve still got the highlights and some glazes/washes to do on them.

This guy I took all the way through the process though. I should have tried for a shot th…

Another quick Dwarf update. I finished and primed up my Anvil of Doom (+2) and two units of unreleased Iron Breakers!

On the Orlock front, I finished up the lips and facial hair this week and moved on to the shirts. The first two layers are down, th…

I finished up the rest of the skin tones this week. I went back and cleaned up the white guys a bit as I wasn’t happy with some of the transitions between my shading and highlights. I must have improved them somewhat as now Picasa is identifying their …

A quick 6mm tangent/review before I head back to 28mm land. I asked Allen of GameCraft Miniatures to make some laser cut/etched building bases for all the E40k ruins I have. There were three sizes overall: 12×12, 12×30 and 30x30cm. I went with those si…

Forgive me this brief 3-4 month 28mm distraction. I’m signed up for a Necromunda event at Adepticon this year so I’ll be painting up some Orlocks for that. I started in last week with the assembly, priming and doing the eyes. This week I managed to get…

A threesome of battle reports from over the holidays for you viewing pleasure. First up are a few shots from a Warmaster game I played with Ed. The Undead had a tough time and got caught in the flank by my cav charge. I dubbed the game the Nightmare be…

Some more shots of my bugs for this years EpiComp. I went back and highlighted the Trygon and Lictor so that they would fit in with the new ones. I didn’t get the Silflor Spring Moss pads in time to put them on so they’ll have to wait. Anyway, here are…
