Posted on July 14th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’m back from a short vacation to the mountains – well, short compared to the three week odyssey two years ago. The other parts will be posted over on my Bike Blog – I’ll probably edit this post once they’re done to include direct links to the various …

Shadows of Brimstone – Flesh Stalker Expansion

Posted on July 12th, 2018 under . Posted by

Boardgames – Shadows of Brimstone is one of those games that can go
anywhere. Initially I thought it was just an Old West style game but every
commission I paint seems to go further than the last. Most recently I
worked on a Flesh-Stalker and Flesh-Drones. This is one of the
mini-expansions with a Boss Character and minions rather than one of the
big box releases. 

Fall-out Boys and Girls – Board Game Minis

Posted on July 10th, 2018 under . Posted by

Board Games – Typically when I get a new client they give me a small batch
of minis to “test paint” before moving on to the rest of their collection.
My newest client opted to send me back to the wastelands with a small batch
of models from the Fall-out Board game. Sadly I never made it very far in
Fall-out 3 and haven’t looked at any of the other games so my knowledge of
the game is based mostly on popular references and looking back at the
Collectors Edition guide I picked up when Fall-out 3 was released many
moons ago.

Let’s Play! – Hero Quest by Milton Bradley/Games Workshop

Posted on June 21st, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

It’s time to roll back to one of the most influential games in the history of Wargaming. In 1989 miniatures took their first big step into the mainstream when Milton Bradley partnered with Games Workshop for a dungeon adventure game that still stands the test of time. This was the entry point for an entire […]

From the Deep – A Lobotomy Expansion

Posted on May 17th, 2018 under . Posted by

Board Games – Pop Culture Icons/References trapped in an insane asylum
trying to escape from other Pop Culture Icons/References seems to be the
basis of Lobotomy the board game. I haven’t actually played the game, but
based on the large batches of minis I’ve painted for my client that’s the
general opinion I have about the game. The models are decent quality and
plentiful which is usually a good enough reason to pick up a game. (Because
if it’s awful you can always repurpose the minis right?)

Stuffed Fables … Board Game Miniatures

Posted on April 27th, 2018 under . Posted by

Board Games – My board game clients are always bringing me something new
and different that I I’ve either not played or not heard about, but wind up
intrigued by the models. Stuffed Fables is one of those games. The concept
of a family friendly game that takes place completely on a self contained
“book” that also acts as a board is intriguing. I might need to do some
more research into this game as it might be a good fit for my kids.
