Painting


Friday Snippets

This has to have been the longest 3-day week I've had in quite some time. But car repairs and doctor's visits will do that to you, I suppose. I'm so very much ready for the weekend, as 2019 is already doing a number on me, and we're not even a full week in yet. Maybe I can gain some strength from a pair of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Paint Colors From Secret Weapon Miniatures and The Art of the Miniature Painting Guide Up On Kickstarter.

You can even order a copy signed by the author.

Ok, so it's not exactly here yet, but it will be soon enough (That's not soon enough!). Just gotta get through the rest of today and we'll be there. I've got gaming lined up for tomorrow. I hope you do, too. But, as always, if we're going to be spending a day gaming, we should be sure to snack on some bite-sized gaming stories so we have our strength with us.

Idoneth Deepkin Available To Order From Games Workshop

Under the sea (under the sea) there's a whole race of elves (sorry, aelves) that have been hiding out from the ocean, sticking clean clear of Slaanesh and only doing some light raiding. Well, that time is over. They're storming the beaches and bringing their fight inland. You can pick up the Codex for this new faction, as well as several new units and accesssories, as Games Workshop's taking pre-orders for them now.

Figure Painter Magazine Issue 48 Now Available

A couple weekends ago, I painted up the first minis I'd done in about 2 years.
They... don't look great. I mean, they are ok enough, I suppose. But they're not going to be anything I really show off. To get to that point, I'd need to paint a lot more and read a lot more Figure Painter Magazine. Thankfully, Issue 48 is now available to help me out.

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we're already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I've been up and into the office each day. Just been that type of year so far, I suppose. What might help is bulking up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The Army Painter Announces New Zombicide: Green Horde Paint Sets, Dice Coins Up On Kickstarter, Muddleflog Paper Miniatures Are Now Available, and New Oval Ancient Machinery Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.

Figure Painter Magazine Issue 47 Now Available

A couple weeks ago, I went through my (rather neglected) paint collection, resuscitating those that I could, and tossing out those that were dried solid. I have been meaning to start painting again. Just need to find time to do it. I know my skills will be rusty, but maybe by reading through Figure Painter Magazine Issue 47, I can get a jump-start back to making my models presentable. You can get your copy as well, as it's available now.

New Samurai Available To Order for Pike & Shotte

Warlord Games lets you play using far-Eastern themes in their skirmish game, Test of Honour. But what if you want to put entire regiments of figures out onto the board, instead of just a few? That's where Pike & Shotte comes in. If you're wanting to prove your honor on the battlefield there, you can order the new Ashigaru Spearmen & Missle Troops, as well as Samurai & Horsemen. Plus, there's some new decals to make them look really good on the battlefield.

Fridaaaaaaay! And man, I worked like mad yesterday, but there's still tons to do. And you should see what my grocery list looks like for tomorrow. We'll see if I can fit everything into my little Chevy Aveo. I might have to do it in two goes. But that's for tomorrow (and into next week). At the moment, it's about getting some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Khurasan releases 15mm West Sudanese, New Version of PaintMyMinis App Now Available, Comet Lord Miniatures: Legendary Monsters Up On Kickstarter, and Trolls & Goblins by Aenor Miniatures Up On Kicsktarter.
