Miniature Painting: The Shame Grows…

So, it’s happened. The shame has grown too great. So I continued the minis that I have left half-painted. Here’s where I am so far. First up, the stupid tiefling. Obviously, I will need to do some touch-ups, but he’s coming along okay, I guess. I’m just annoyed with this mini and unsure of whatContinue reading “Miniature Painting: The Shame Grows…”

Mini Painting Update!

So I told you I would keep you updated on my miniature painting! Boy, oh boy have I been busy! First off, you remember Xanathar? Well, here he is now: Of course, there’s still more work to do. I still have to shore up around each eye stalk’s eyelid thing, as well as each eyeballContinue reading “Mini Painting Update!”

Miniature Painting Christmas Miracle

So I wanted to tell you all a quick story. I wanted to surprise my wife this Christmas with something I thought she’d appreciate and wouldn’t think that I’d be able to get for her. You see, she’s been on a HeroForge kick of late. She’s been designing characters left and right. She’s even hadContinue reading “Miniature Painting Christmas Miracle”

Painting Update: Manshoon and the Drider

So I finally did it! I finished Manshoon! He turned out wonderfully. The only thing I have not done is any kind of shading. I’m still trying to get that friend of mine to help me learn that shading technique that he uses. Thus, he’s not fully finished. In other news, I have started workContinue reading “Painting Update: Manshoon and the Drider”

How-To Paint Minis: Painting Minsc

Hello, Dear Readers! I only have a short post as my recent MS relapse has had me in near constant doctors appointments! That said, I have something to show you: Isn’t he wonderful?

Painting Highlights: Minsc and Manshoon

So here we are again! This week, although my phone is broken, I was able to get some photos uploaded of my current progress on both Minsc and Manshoon. Minsc and Boo I got bored with seeing the crappy base unpainted and did what I feel is a decent flagstone street motif. Additionally, you canContinue reading “Painting Highlights: Minsc and Manshoon”

DM Story: Tapping Him Gently With My Warhammer

Ah, the mid-1980’s. We had no computers. We had no cars. What we did have is the living room of my friend Bob’s house and his saintly mother who never complained about a mob of teenage boys in her house every Saturday and Sunday for hours at a time. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay was my 2ndContinue reading “DM Story: Tapping Him Gently With My Warhammer”

How-To Paint Minis: Painting Mins (and Boo)

Welcome to another addition of How-To Paint Minis! Today, I’ve decided to do something a little different. Today I am the miniature that I got with the D&D brand (by Army Painter; you guys seriously rock!) miniature paints. And I’m going to paint him mostly with the paints that they provide in box. When IContinue reading “How-To Paint Minis: Painting Mins (and Boo)”

Miniature Painting Spotlight: 11/1/2020

Here we are again, with another awesome edition of our Miniature Painting Spotlight! First up is an old 1979 (I think? May be from 80’s, but pewter is pretty worn on the bottom!) metal mini. And here he is now! Done and done! I am hoping to use him as one of my Red WizardsContinue reading “Miniature Painting Spotlight: 11/1/2020”
