More For Sale

April 15, 2012

Hi everyone, I added a new For Sale page where I will be adding models to sell that I have as surplus (ie I have way more stuff than I can paint). Generally this will be at a substantial discount.  If you have any questions, use the Contact link above. Note that the painted items that were for sale …

Demigryph Knights Completed!

April 12, 2012

I spent a fair bit of time on these and hopefully it shows :) This is a really nice kit, the models look awesome and are easy to put together. I found the sculpts so nice I kept going back to do a tweak here or a fix there, which is rare for me these days (usually I'm all about getting the model don…

Empire State Troops WIP

April 9, 2012

Hey everyone - as mentioned, I'm dabbling painting some Empire. Now, I don't often show WIP shots on the site, but wanted to get some feedback on a few things (other than: paint Circle instead ;)). My camera setup is driving me nuts lately - not sure what is "off" with it, but for example the glare …

Snow Bases and Getting the Empire Urge

April 8, 2012

Hey guys!  I know you've seen this trio of Thunderwolves before, but that was before they were properly based. I've added highland tufts and snow - what do you think of the snow effect here, does it seem convincing? In a way it almost looks too dry to me somehow. I'm tempted to add a little gloss va…

Super Dungeon Explore - Barbarian

April 7, 2012

Don't you hate it when your miniature photos don't do your work justice? I feel that way about this little lady - she looks really awesome from "boardgaming distance" but the photo comes off a little blah. Anyway, yet another hero painted. I think next will be the Rogue and the Ranger. The druid and…

Super Dungeon Explore - Painting Continues

April 5, 2012

It's weird - sometimes I let a project sit for months at a time, then can go back and attack it with (relative) gusto. There has been a pile of half painted, primed Super Dungeon Explore models sitting right beside me while I've painted all kinds of Warhammer and Hordes models. I swear they literall…

Something Completely Different - Gears of War

April 3, 2012

Hi everyone - I guess "hobby ADD" is in full effect. Right  now a buddy of mine (Robin) is going through a pretty intense boardgaming phase. I think most of the stuff he's been playing so far does not involve much in the way of miniatures (for example, Dominion). That said, his enthusiasm is contagi…

For Sale Items Added

April 1, 2012

Hey everyone, I've accumulated a fairly large quantity of finished/wip/new-on-sprue models that I will be starting to sell occasionally. You will be able to find the For Sale items on this page (right side nav) and on the Galleries page as well (same setup). The For Sale gallery uses lightbox to dis…

Space Wolves Thunderwolf Cavalry Painted

March 27, 2012

Finished up a quick and dirty unit of TWC yesterday. They are obviously "gaming quality" and there is a bit more work to do on them. You'll note the very plain bases - I'm actually waiting for the new Citadel snow stuff (part of the new paint range) to use on these (we'll see how the quality is). At…

Darn you, GW!!

February 25, 2012

Man. I cannot break my "oooh new shiny!" habits. I've been really getting into the Privateer groove over the last couple of weeks, including buying WAY too much stuff and doing some actual painting for a change. I figured I wouldn't be buying much GW stuff for a while because there didn't seem to be…

Necron Annihilation Barge Posted

January 14, 2012

Finally getting around to posting images of the Annihilation Barge that was the subject of my recent tutorial videos! Also bought some of the new Vampire Counts stuff today - some really, really nice models. Picked up a wight king (I really like the new "single plastic" models, much more than fineca…

Citadel Basing Tufts - Video Review Posted

January 10, 2012

In addition to the recent Necron tutorials I've put up a short video review of the new basing tufts from Citadel (along with comparisons to the Army Painter offering).

Necron Painting - Tutorial Video Posted

January 8, 2012

I managed to complete a full tutorial video (finally!) and have posted it to YouTube - check it out! It's about how I'm painting these bone colored Necrons right now. It's actually a two part video, part 2 is still uploading and looks like it could take a few hours. If you enjoy the video I hope you…

More Necron Work - Barge and Ark

January 2, 2012

I go weeks without an update and then do two in one day. Go figure. I could have just edited the last post but wanted to give these bad boys their own space :)

Remember these are intended to look "good enough" from a few feet away for some gaming fun. The green comes off a bit more garish in the pho…

Happy New Year

January 2, 2012

Hi everyone! It has been quite a while since my last post. Pre-Holiday I was pulling 12-13 hour days at work....combine that with trying to have a life with my kids and of course painting took a back seat in a major way. However, over the holidays I watched a video by MiniWarGaming in which Matt tal…

Dreadfleet - Swordfysh completed

October 9, 2011

Finished up the Swordfysh - this is probably my least favorite ship of the set, so I didn't put QUITE as much enthusiasm into it, but I still tried to do a nice job :)

Dreadfleet and Space Marine

October 8, 2011

UPDATE: also finished the Curse of Zandri (Tomb Kings ship). Posted below.

Long time no post! Since my last update I've picked up Dreadfleet and started working on the assembly and painting. I know opinions on this release by GW are polarized, but I'm on the "impressed" side of the fence. The box co…

Razorwing WIP

July 17, 2011


I'm almost fully operational with my new painting setup, but my previous photo setup is in shambles (light tent etc). So what we have here is a poorly lit WIP shot, including using LED lighting, of a Dark Eldar Razorwing. In reality the green/blacks are more prominent and blended (airb…

New Lair is Taking Shape

July 2, 2011

My new painting area is nearing completion - assuming current GW pricing hasn't totally crushed the hobby for me, I may be up and painting new models soon! (I'm actually finding myself wanting to collect Star Wars Lego, although that's probably not much cheaper as hobbies go).

This new room is even…

Miniwargaming's Open Letter (Vid) to GW

June 13, 2011

I just came across a video that Mathew at posted recently (ok, June 3...but I was at E3 for a week and lost track of time). It's an open letter to Games Workshop, and in it I think he makes a lot of really good points. I don't know if GW is listening, per se, but hopefully they tak…
