Migration to Blogger

December 3, 2012
Hey everyone! So, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on moving to Blogger as a platform. Right now I'm messing around with layout/design etc and trying to make it not quite so hard on the eyes - but it's a start. This should hopefully allow for a few things: easier to follow the blog (subscribe/f…

Super Dungeon Explore...and those damn Hobbits

December 1, 2012
This is a bit random, these guys were half finished for a long time - I'm trying to finish up a fully painted set of SDE for ebay pre-Christmas.

Also, I was totally not going to buy the really expensive Hobbit store. But at my LGS, they had the set mostly assembled and I got taken in by all that nic…

Chaos Space Marines Heldrake - better shots

November 18, 2012
Took some better shots, although I'm realizing now my camera lens is filthy and it's affecting my images! I'll fix that for next time. I posted a variety of shots in the Chaos marines gallery - here's a sample:

Iron Warriors Helldrake

November 17, 2012

Finished this guy today - need to do the base of course, and then he'll be up on ebay. Not sure when because I don't want to end an auction on  Thanksgiving weekend in the US :)

Nurgle Lord

November 12, 2012
Here's the results of my first go with this model - I don't think it will be the last, he's quite fun to paint and didn't take long. I feel like he looks better in person than in the photos (isn't that always the case?).

Radio Silence!

November 11, 2012

Hi everyone - sorry for the lack of updates lately. Work really kicked into overdrive in the last couple of weeks as we draft plans for Dragon Age 3. It's been long days, and what free time I have generally has to be spent on my kids and family "stuff". And the odd short session of video gaming.

Finished Hellbrute

October 23, 2012

This guy took me much longer than I anticipated. The model is replete with details - it's a really cool model as I mentioned before. I think it rewards any additional effort put into painting it. I'm not sure I'm completely satisfied with the weathering, but have to call it done. I have a primed Hel…

Iron Warriors Chaos Hellbrute WIP

October 21, 2012

I've been a fan of this model since it was first previewed as part of the Dark Vengeance set for 40K quite some time ago. I think it's really dynamic and has a lot of character and visual interest. It's also very detailed, showing what plastic kits are capable of these days. In fact, as I paint it I…

Sorry for the lack of updates!

October 14, 2012

Hi everyone,

Finished painting up this Iron Warriors Forgefiend. I'm working on some other Iron Warriors stuff including some of the new infantry, and some basic chaos marines. Sorry I haven't been updating - I've been a little busy. Hope to get some new posts going soon.

Heavy Gear Blitz - Southern force

September 28, 2012

Hey guys, jeez almost a month since my...uh...rant!

Managed to get a game in with the Britannia fleet (a short lunch game). It was fun, although I definitely find Dystopian Wars' rules to be a little hard to digest. In the meantime I also bought and started painting some Russian Coalition. Nice shi…

September 9, 2012

UPDATE: swapped the WIP shot of Britannia for a shot of some of the finished ships. I may try to add some numbering/flag decals to them but really happy so far. Dreadnought, carrier and escorts are on deck as well.

I like to try and keep things positive on the blog - hopefully I usually manage to d…

Hordes - Trollblood Mountain King and other musings

September 3, 2012

Hi everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I've posted with any regularity (or posted new work). I'm slowly getting back on my painting feet. I am back in production in my painting room and have a decent photo setup re-established to take shots of my work. So now I can (a) paint new stuff and (b) …

Necrons...for sale...

August 24, 2012

If this interests you, you will want to hit me up quickly before I change my mind - I'm not sure this is a good thing to do! It's a great army and Necrons got a lot stronger in 6th edition :)


The army consists of:

- Necron Lord on Barge
- Trayzn the Infinite (I think…

Back in Action

August 15, 2012

Some great news - since my painting room was not actually really hit by any of the basement flooding, I have been given the all clear to move back in and get back to work on my hobby :)

Here's my painting station set back up.

So I guess essentially I was out of commission for about a month, mos…

Disaster Strikes

July 21, 2012

Hi everyone.  Well, this week just really sucked. Did it suck for you? I feel like a wave of cosmic suck from space hit the Earth and all kinds of crappy things happened.

One of the big ones was during some heavy (HEAVY) rain last weekend, my basement flooded. The sump pump failed. Now, I managed…

Mountain King WIP Continues

July 15, 2012

Hi everyone. Work continues on the Moutain King - it's slow going because (a) I was in San Fran all week and (b) I'm addicted to Diablo 3. Both of those were detrimental to my painting progress :)

You can see I've done some work on the rocks - they aren't done but  I'm pretty happy with how they lo…

Hordes: Trollblood Mountain King WIP

July 8, 2012

So I loved painting the Cygnar Stormwall and I'm loving this guy as well so far. Privateer have done an amazing job with these large scale models. For the Mountain King in particular the posing is really dynamic and the details are awesome - even if it got a little fiddly gluing on all those chains.

Stormwall Among Top of the Week on CMON

July 3, 2012

I'm not gonna lie, I keep an eye on the Cool-Mini-Or-Not Top Last 7 Days list pretty regularly. For one it's where I discover hidden gems of inspiration. For another, it's my personal goal (sometimes) to try and break into that list with my own stuff! Now, I don't ever expect to hit that bar with my…

Necron Doom Scythe

July 2, 2012

So I actually finished 3 of these this evening - that is to say, 3 ships with interchangeable weapons/portals to run as either Doom Scythes or Nigh Scythes.  From what I can tell as far as reading about 6th edition online, Necrons made out pretty well under the new ruleset and these ships are quite …
