The changing face of my miniature gaming in 2017

Posted on December 22nd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Whilst 2016 was most definitely the year of Chain of Command, my gaming hobby in 2017, though still primarily miniatures based, has moved much more towards a smaller sized game, especially as the year has progressed. It could be argued that most of my …

Is there anybody out there?

Posted on May 15th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. So the popular Mark Twain paraphrase goes. In a similar vein, the recent silence from Battleshed Diaries may have had my reader wondering what on earth has happened? The last report was back in Ma…

Trying out this new/old hand technique. It’s difficult to get the right thickness and smoothness as well as give some more specific description to the anatomy of the hand. A very intense session, sculpting that. I mixed some Green Stuff into the putty …

Vampire face calculations

Posted on November 11th, 2013 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Not much to say yet. The head is again slightly enlarged and I miscalculated the size of the teeth so he looks a bit grotesque. I’ll try to sharpen the gorget when it cures.
