I really should get off my lazy butt and paint something again. I honestly can’t remember the last figure I painted. … Maybe some Ice Caste for Dark Age? Maybe something for the Prefecture for Bushido? I forget. Needless to say, when I do finally pick up a brush again, my skills are going...

Well, it’s just rainy all over everywhere. Probably shouldn’t be out driving around too much if you can avoid it. Might not be a bad idea to stay inside and do some reading. Oh, hey, look at that. Ironwatch Issue 41 is now available. You can read that....

Nothing better than sitting in a comfy chair with a warm cup of cocoa and reading about some gaming on a cold, winter’s evening. Granted, it’s only getting down to like the 40s overnight right now here in Atlanta, and I don’t have a “comfy chair” in my apartment (I do ha...

I actually painted something recently! Crazy, right? Granted… all I did was paint the tops of my Betrayal at Calth troop bases. Ultramarines got Ultramarine Blue (yes, I still have a pot that’s called that. Citadel Paint is bulletproof) and the Word Bearers got Blood Red. Since they’...

You know, the world of hobby gaming is a rather broad topic, when you think of it. Card games, board games, miniatures games, dice games, and even various dexterity-based games. Such is the world of painting. It certainly overlaps a lot with our hobby gaming world. Most noticeably in the miniatures g...

As I’ve mentioned recently, my painting could be considered mediocre at best. My figures have a 3′ paint job. That’s to say that if held at arm’s length, then they look alright. That’s as opposed to a 3″ paint job, where you have the figure right up to your face. I...

I haven’t painted a figure in quite some time. It’s sad, really. But then again, I’ve not had much time to really play a minis game regularly in a while. And I’m not really one to just “paint for the sake of painting.” So if/when I do pick up a brush again, I know ...

Many of us can appreciate a really-well-painted figure. Even if we, ourselves, don’t do much painting (I think the last figure I painted was over a year ago), we can still look at a mini and go, “Damn!” Well, for those of you who want your painting skills as high as they can, or if ...
