Hi all! With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.
A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another. I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.

It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between. I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time. I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago. My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting. Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures. My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.
I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings. And these guys will be looking forward as well. And backwards. And sideways. Always watching.
How have you improved this year?
Wizards of the Coast D&D metal model.
From the year Two-Thou-sand (you have to say it like Conan O'Brien)
Rescued from the Island of Lost Pewture, (aka my friends rpg storage shed) and painted up. I love his goggles, I don't think you see enough of those on wizard minis. I can see a fireball coming.
The current center-piece of my Demonic Army, a Balrog "Balor."
This is "Errtu, Balor" from the Legend of Drizzt D&D Board Game. I painted him up about a year ago and he was one of the first huge minis I ever attempted. There's a lot that I wish I'd done better looking back on it, but you have to make mistakes to get better!

Check out the rest of my Blood War project HERE.
Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal!
"Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought."
"You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?"
"Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings."
"God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come."
"Mercifully, we have one of our best men on the scene. God willing he can contain the beast until the rest of the team arrives."
Father Sweeny, again from Artizan's 'Thrilling Tales' line, had better be a man of strong faith and iron will.
The Beast, ornery after centuries of durance :
Hold the line...
