I’ve not painted a mini in years. But lately, I’ve been kinda wanting to get some colored goop onto my Guild Ball teams. Thing is, I know my skills have certainly atrophied in the time it’s been since I last painted. So, if I want my first miniature I do to not be garbage, I [&helli...

If you’re really into getting your minis looking as good as possible, you’ll want to take every opportunity to improve your skills. My skills are incredibly lacking, with my painted minis just north of “well, they don’t look like you did it with a paintball gun…” S...

I really gotta get back into painting my minis. I’ve got 3 Guild Ball teams, resplendent in their pewter shine and resin grey, but they really could use to have some actual color on them. Every time I see a new issue of Figure Painter Magazine come out, I think, “yeah, this time I’l...

You know, my Guild Ball teams only have 6 figures on the pitch at a time. I really should get around to painting them. I mean, it’s just 6 figures. Though I’ve not painted in ages. I should look over some of the tutorials and articles in Figure Painter Magazine to help me out. And [&helli...

Seeing as I’ve recently picked up Guild Ball, I really should think about getting back into painting. It’s only a half-dozen models on a team when playing, and there’s only about twice that available for each team, anyway. Reading through the pages of Figure Painter Magazine will ce...

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 Fi...

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...

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 ...
