Current Projects

Dear Readers, I apologize if there has been a serious lack of substantive content in recent history, but I’ve been feeling really under the weather especially after my short vacation. No I don’t have anything serious, just a cold combined with allergies. That said I have some updates on some things I’ve been working on.Continue reading “Current Projects”

Miniature Painting Update: Gye

You may have seen a previous post where I’m working on a female human looking monk. Miniature is a representation of one of my players characters by the name of Gye. I’ve made some good strides since then. I started working on her girdle and her sash. As you can see, touch-ups are required. MuchContinue reading “Miniature Painting Update: Gye”

Painting Update: Acererak and Robed Female Monk

So here’s a painting update on my two current projects. Acererak Mostly, I was trying to make sure the Wraith Black is covering all of the black primer I used on his robe.

New Miniature Project

So I wanted to give you an update on Acererak, but I was offered a commission on a friend’s miniature that I couldn’t turn down. She’s a female human monk, named Gye (pronounced “gee” like geek). I’ve started her out with washing and priming her: She’s going to have black hair (likely that Wraith BlackContinue reading “New Miniature Project”

Miniature Painting Spotlight: Acererak Update

When last we left off, our Acererak mini looked like this: We were quietly drying on a dry cloth. Now let’s assemble this mini like the Avengers! I decided to use the Citadel Plastic Glue, a reliable miniature glue, but you could have used just about any miniature glue. It’s what I have on hand,Continue reading “Miniature Painting Spotlight: Acererak Update”

Working on Acererak

Isn’t She Lovely…Isn’t She Beautiful…

Dear Readers, I was so excited about finishing her, I couldn’t contain myself, and had to post about her today!

Painting Profile: Finishing the Xanathar

Dear Readers, Today is a landmark day. But also disappointing! I’ll show you what I mean. You know where we left off, and here’s where we went! Here we are. We did the shading over the body!

Quick Painting Update: The Shame Lessens

As most of you may know, I have a number of miniatures that I had begun to paint, but had abandoned for reasons like: “Gah, this isn’t as fun to paint as I’d thought it’d be,” and “This mini sucks. Why did I buy it?” and my personal favorite “I have so many minis…so many…OOH!Continue reading “Quick Painting Update: The Shame Lessens”
