  1. I had one of these guys already fully painted, but I was waiting until I had a unit to post in Show Off. What we have here is an Army Painter bone colour spray primer, blocked in colour for clothing, armour and weapons, a quickshade ink wash, a drybrush all over with Reaper Polished Bone, ink washes to bring the colours back up, reapplication of metallics and finally painting the eyes blue and basing. Pretty easy and fast, so I'm confident that I'll be able to crank a bunch of these out and have a couple of hordes in no time - once this spring weather decides to stay fine for more th

  3. So, I don't know if promo is allowed, so message me and I'll remove this if it's not, but I'm just SO. EXCITED! I got featured on the website of the next con I'll be doing the Art Show at! (Awesomecon Indianapolis.) Check it out!
  4. Got to thinking about this when I was at Reapercon, and got the idea from someone to paint up a Fafhrd and Grey Mouser. Y'see, I love me some fantasy literature, especially the kind they just don't make any more. I got into it in a BIG way back in the seventies, when the testosterone was startin' to rise, and it's terminal; my love for the genre will be with me until I die. Which brings to mind, for me, the old "who'd win in a fight" argument. Someone mentioned it on a Facebook group, and I thought I'd throw it out here. My choices: *CONAN is the go-to guy for fantasy barbarians, and perh

  7. So as I've been getting back into the swing of painting more frequently (as opposed to occasionally dabbling), I've been mucking about with some of these new-fangled teknologies you crazy kids have been inventing (Why, in my day, we painted with Testor's and we liked it, by gum!). One thing I got my hands on was a jar of Army Painter's Quickshade - the soft tone, and I figured I'd see how it works. I've been working on a couple of the Reaper Bones trolls (bought specifically to test primed vs. unprimed painting), and an old Chainmail minotaur skeleton that were both close to complete (or

  18. tl:dr Birthright takes that 'divine right of kings' bit seriously. I wanna do some Birthright themed skirmish using the Of Gods and Mortals rules from Osprey. Skip to bottom if you don't want setting explanation. So I read a bunch of the Birthright campaign stuff back in the day and really liked the setting but was so/so on the rules. Warning: Redonculously long setting summary for those not familiar with Birthright (aka, OMG a wall of text!) For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, Birthright was a 2nd edition AD&D campaign setting that had Elves that were basically
