Hobby-splosions

Posted on September 3rd, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Kaboom! It’s only a bloody hobby-splosion! I’ve been a busy bee recently, there’s been painting, there’s been (some) gaming, there’s been some branching out into new territories.. New stuff Let’s start off on that first point. I say ‘new’, in one particular case it’s more a re-visiting.. I decided a while back that I’m not […]

Painted Scourge army for Dropzone Commander!

Posted on September 1st, 2015 under , . Posted by

Having spent some time magnetizing my little alien invader jellies I sat down with paint and brush to make them tabletop ready. You might have seen some teasers over on the Facebook page, but here is the complete army, as it stands right now, in all its glory! This is roughly 1100 points or so, but I have one more starter set to build and am planning on getting some Reaver gunships and

I am an Idiot

Clarence Harrison – So, yeah. I have painted a pile of Warfare Miniatures infantry and I have an equally large pile to go. Changing it up always helps break the monotony of the grind when you have a lot of models to paint so I thought for King James II…

Posted on August 28th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I’ve been contemplating this for a number of years: a ‘paint-a-thon’ for the College boys, an opportunity to create their own armies. The idea came from a GW event that used to run, same principle, 24 hours.24 hours? I don’t think so, but 12 I thought …

Super Dungeon Explore Vol. 17: Slimes

Posted on August 21st, 2015 under , . Posted by

Several times in the last few months I’ve looked over this blog and started writing a post to get me back into it. These always end up being filled with things like “wow, it’s been a while” or something like that. Clearly, none of those ideas have worked, so instead, I’m just going to dive right back in with more Super Dungeon Explore.
Among my Gencon purchases this year was the small expansion for Super Dungeon Explore, dungeon tiles and slimes.  The slimes come in four different colors and I just couldn’t let them sit on my desk without working on them.

The process was very simple. All I really did was paint the eyes and add some ink to their mouths. One tip I can give is that these little guys have mold lines, but don’t be afraid to remove them. Trimming away the mold lines will leave a dull finish on the plastic, but you can erase this with a coat of glass varnish, which I used on the entire model anyway.

 

I also decided to go for a different scheme in bases. I’ve been getting a bit bored of the typical grey stone, so the newer models will strive for a more organic look and feel. In this case, it’s a bit hard to see the detail of the base, but are some Malifaux bases using the same scheme. These were painted with ScaleColours, which I am just starting to use. I like these a lot, especially for terrain and bases because it is completely matte and easy to make a dusty and dirty look with some stippling.

More to Come.

Rebasing 8th Army

Posted on August 21st, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

I picked up 50 painted Esci 8th army troops in a trade with Tim in Saskatoon. These were lovingly based but not in a way I could use so I ended up rebasing. This was less painful than I thought. Most went on four-man bases but a fair number were indivi…
