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.

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.

Where to Put Things

Dear Readers, I am not an organized person. I have to leave clutter around here and there, and my desk is barely usable.

My wife is the organizing and storage lover in ourContinue reading “Where to Put Things”

Painting Update: Fighting Laziness and New Projects

So, here’s some of the projects I have worked on since the Space Marine, using the new techniques for drybrushing that I have learned. Behold! Manshoon!

IContinue reading “Painting Update: Fighting Laziness and New Projects”
