Battletech: My Obsession Continues

Dear Readers, I think I might have a problem. An addiction if you will. You see, when Catalyst Game Labs decided to re-release the Battletech game with affordable plastic miniatures and put them out on the market, the Battletech community went wild. You have to understand, the only way to get Miniatures in the pastContinue reading “Battletech: My Obsession Continues”

Painting Update: Female Goliath Barbarian

Dear Readers, I’ve made some good progress on this miniature this week. Here’s how she looks: I ended up using Wraith Black for her hair, which didn’t turn out quite as dark as I had hoped. I will likely do a dark wash over the hair to darken it up a little. I used whiteContinue reading “Painting Update: Female Goliath Barbarian”

Major Painting Update: So Much Stuff…

Dear Readers, here we are again with another painting update! This one is kind of big one so buckle up! First we have the completed Black Knight. I did some work on the base, including using Citadel’s technical paint called Astrogranite. Here is what the Black Knight looks like finished (minus the dull coat finish):Continue reading “Major Painting Update: So Much Stuff…”

Let’s Talk Battletech: Miniatures Edition – Black Knight & Atlas

Here we are again, dear readers with an update on my BattleTech miniature painting. As you will undoubtedly see, I have been hard at work painting these miniatures. With no further ado, let’s get started! First off, we have the Atlas, the pain in my backside. It took… a considerable amount of paint to getContinue reading “Let’s Talk Battletech: Miniatures Edition – Black Knight & Atlas”

Let’s talk Battletech: Miniatures – Continued a.k.a The Daily DM Planned Better

Hey Dear Readers, today I’m going to continue on with painting my Battletech minis. I don’t expect this to be a very long post, mostly because I will be priming my two Inner Sphere mechs, and doing a base coat on my Clanner mech. Also, update on my shipment from Catalyst Game Labs, I gotContinue reading “Let’s talk Battletech: Miniatures – Continued a.k.a The Daily DM Planned Better”

Let’s Talk Battletech: Miniatures

Dear Readers, you may remember these guys from last week when I repaired or put together for the first time, these guys: Well, I’ve decided to try my hand at painting these metal ones before I try working on all of my plastic ones. I’m going to, as usual, start with priming. The Timberwolf isContinue reading “Let’s Talk Battletech: Miniatures”

At Last…

At long last, my house is in order. Mostly. But I was able to get my new painting station set up (for the most part; you see a trend?), and got a little bit of painting done. Unfortunately, this afternoon, I ended up having to drive to my local VA hospital for an appointment thatContinue reading “At Last…”

Miniature Painting Spotlight: Pre-primed Hobgoblins…Sort Of

Readers, today we’re going to look at painting a couple of hobgoblins I’m going to be needing tomorrow for the Inglorious Ingrates. I’m going to provide a step-by-step process on how I’m going to go about painting these miniatures. As we are going to be dealing with miniatures that are already prime, we are goingContinue reading “Miniature Painting Spotlight: Pre-primed Hobgoblins…Sort Of”

Late Post

So everything that has gone wrong has gone wrong, Dear Readers. Originally, I was planning on doing a How-To post on painting miniatures. Then I realized that I still had a commission that I was behind in delivering. You know the one. That Goliath Barbarian. The problem is, I had started to take pictures andContinue reading “Late Post”

NOT A Player’s Perspective

Dear Readers, unfortunately we don’t have an issue of A Player’s Perspective tonight, as Brandon, our weekly contributor for that article, was gone that evening. He’ll be back next week with a great update for you. In the mean time, I have finished the planetar! Here he is: As you can see, I put aContinue reading “NOT A Player’s Perspective”

VERY Brief Painting Update: Goliath Barbarian

Hello, Dear Readers! It’s been one heck of a week, and it’s looking at being busier as my birthday is coming up this Friday (yay me!). Unfortunately, that means I didn’t get a lot of painting done this week (although I plan on having it for next Tuesday!). Here is the update on the Barbarian:Continue reading “VERY Brief Painting Update: Goliath Barbarian”

Painting Update: Planetar and Goliath Barbarian

Painting Update: Short One, Because It’s Humid!

As many of you know, when you paint miniatures, it is necessary to have a nice try environment so that the miniatures will dry out and you can move on to the next layer. The problem here is that it is so hot and humid outside that the AC can’t keep up with my sunroomContinue reading “Painting Update: Short One, Because It’s Humid!”

Product Unboxing: Nolzur’s Marvelous Pigments – Underdark Paint Set

Here we are, Dear Readers, with another product unboxing! For those that remember, the Undead paint set was the last product unboxing that I did. The underdark paint set is of a similar vein. 10 paints, one being a metallic, and a miniature. As we saw last time, it’s a pretty standard box of paints.Continue reading “Product Unboxing: Nolzur’s Marvelous Pigments – Underdark Paint Set”

Painting Update: Goliath Barbarian and Planetar

First off, I’m really excited about these two projects. In particular, I’m really excited about the planetar. I think he, in particular, is going to turn out particularly well. Not to say I’m not going to put forth my best effort on the goliath, but the planetar is looking good to me. First off, theContinue reading “Painting Update: Goliath Barbarian and Planetar”

Upcoming Projects

So I have a number of projects coming down the pipeline that I am excited to share with you all! Battletech: Clan Invasion Unboxing I’ve said a number of times that, while D&D is most definitely my jam, I have a love of all things tabletop gaming. My other tabletop love is Battletech. Catalyst Games,Continue reading “Upcoming Projects”

Mini Painting Update: Aasimar and Elf

You all may remember my previous post about the two mins I have been working on for the young ladies I DM for on Wednesdays. After looking at the previous pictures, I realized that they weren’t doing them justice, really. Here is the aasimar paladin again, with better lighting: I think I did a goodContinue reading “Mini Painting Update: Aasimar and Elf”

Short Post: Mini Update

Sorry for the short post today, but I’ve got a lot of doctors appointments and other such things. On top of it, I have the young ladies’ group this evening that I have to prep for. Like I said. Long day. But that doesn’t mean I have nothing to give you today! Do you rememberContinue reading “Short Post: Mini Update”

Miniature Painting Project: Aasimar Paladin

Have you ever gotten so caught up in a project that it just consumed you for a little while? Yeah, that was me. Remember that Paladin I was painting? I totally forgot to take step by step pictures. Dear Readers, for about 2 hours, this miniature became my obsession. I was tapped by the miniatureContinue reading “Miniature Painting Project: Aasimar Paladin”

Short Post: Miniature Painting by Someone Else!
