Figure Painter Magazine issue 34 Out Now

Over the weekend, as I’d mentioned, I inventoried and took photos of a lot of old gaming stuff I’m going to be selling. I… am not good at painting. Even when I was doing it a lot, I wasn’t really better than “randomly throwing paint around.” Too bad I never read Figure Painter Magazine back then. Maybe my figures being painted wouldn’t seem as a liability anymore when trying to sell them. No, if I knew all the tips and tricks from inside those pages, the models would probably be worth a lot more. Well, Issue 34 of the magazine is out now. I should read it so I can get better so the new figures I get will look a lot better.

Figure Painter Magazine issue 32 Out Now

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?

Figure Painter Magazine issue 31 – Out Now

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’re all Marines, I needed a quick and easy way to tell the difference while playing. So… really, it wasn’t much in the way of painting. But if I were going to really get into painting, I’d want to look over Figure Painter Magazine for tips and pointers. Issue 31 also just came out.

Figure Painter Magazine Issue 30 Available Now

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 games, but a lot of board games have figures more-than suited to a coat of paint. But painting also has its own less-seen aspects. It’s some of those that are covered primarily in this issue of Figure Painter Magazine, available now.

Issue 29 of Figure Painter Magazine Now Available

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.

Issue 29 is now available.
