Miniature Monday 12/12/16

I took a bit of a break from painting models.  Well, maybe not as big of a break as I'd thought, but there was a good week where I didn't do much of anything.  Mostly because my cat has decided he wants to help by sticking his nose near the models when I'm trying to paint.

Miniature Monday 11/14/16

The cat kept jumping on the work table and trying to drink my paint water.  I can't imagine it's very tasty.

Miniature Monday 10/31/16

I actually took a week off from doing anything miniature related.  Needed some time away from the hobby after the rush that was Armies on Parade.

Miniature Monday 10/18/16

Armies on Parade ate my time and sanity, so I'm late writing this on two counts.  That's fine, I got to see lots and lots of really cool models this past Saturday.

Miniature Monday 9/27/16

Man, my health has really prevented me from getting a lot done other than assembly this month.  That said, I did try to get back into painting this weekend.

A Week In Miniatures: August 29th to September 4th

A day late or so, but it's been a weird weekend for me.  So trying to get into the swing of things again...

A Week In Miniatures: August 15th to August 21st

What a lazy week!  Pretty much the only thing I worked on was a lone Branchwraith.  Not much to report there other than having to repaint it from a really unsatisfying paint scheme I'd tested out.  Basically it boiled down to the miniature needing more contrast; painting it all embers didn't work out so well.  By going back and redoing the bark bits with darker tones, it came out much better.

AoS: The Sylvaneth

I've been seeing a number of people picking up the Sylvaneth models to play Age of Sigmare with, at least locally.  Including myself.  I thought I'd talk about some insights of mine having played them a few times and deeply contemplated their battletome.

A Week In Miniatures: July 25th to July 31st

I admit to being a bit late in getting this post written.  I also admit I was late in writing this because I was working on models.

A Week In Miniatures: July 18th to July 24th

Well, honestly this past week is the first time in the last three that I've sat down and seriously worked on some miniatures.

A Week In Miniatures: June 27th to July 3rd

Hey hey, it's Independence Day for those of us in the United States.  Not to get too political on this blog, but take a moment to think about your elected representatives and whether or not they actually represent you.  At least you have a way to make your voice heard. The original thirteen colonies got taxes passed on them by the British Crown with no legally elected representatives in the British government; the colonists went to war over it.  Just some food for thought as you enjoy your July 4th holiday.
As usual, I'll see you after the jump cut.

A Week in Miniatures: May 23rd to May 29th

Most of this week was spent ruminating and deciding on how to proceed with various projects.  There are a lot of photos in this post.

A Week in Miniatures: May 2 to May 15, 2016

More accurately two weeks in miniatures seeing as how I forgot to write an entry last week.  Not that it was too eventful.

Fiat Lux

A considerable alteration of my entry to the Win A Titan contest.  (No, I did not win anything. After seeing the entries that did, I understand why.  Every one of the winning entries was far superior to what I'd entered.) Plus I've been reading the Beast Arises series, and feel the story is more appropriate there.  Additionally, I'm not limited to just four hundred words!

Horus Heresy Ultramarines

So this past week I realize I have a ridiculous number of models I plan to use for Heresy-era Ultramarines.  I'll break this down into what I can actually field now in terms of assembled models, and then models I know I have but haven't assembled.  Mostly in terms of full squads or HQs I'm actually working on.

A Week in Miniatures: April 16-24 2016

I realize this post is actually pretty late and it's dated from a Friday to a Sunday, but here we go. I also think I should show some photos of the work, so we'll do that too.

A Week in Miniatures: April 8-15 2016

Originally I was going to write a daily post about the miniatures I work on, but that seems a little too much in my opinion.  So I'm going to summarize what I did every Friday instead!

Warhammer Fantasy & Age of Sigmar: Depth and Complexity

So... Extra Credits has a good video on this subject as it relates to video games, and it applies to tabletop games as well!  Having actually played a full game of Age of Sigmar now, I feel that I can now adequately discuss what the primary differences between Age of Sigmar and Warhammer Fantasy are.

The Lessons of Bob Ross

Twitch has a weekly stream of the Joy of Painting with Bob Ross on Mondays, following a very successful marathon that aired all of the Joy of Painting back to back to celebrate the opening of Twitch's art channel.  I'd like to talk a bit about Bob Ross since I spent a bit of my formative years watching him on the local PBS channel.
