September is coming up very quickly; I’ve got a little less than a week to finish things for August. Some things are not getting done that I thought would and some that I didn’t expect to get started got started. First off here is my list for the month: I finished everything highlighted in greenContinue reading “September…Soon™”
I didn’t get much done this month. I’ve been dealing with some personal stuff and haven’t had a lot of painting time. I did get a little painting done. I painted the Bones Dire Crab by Reaper Miniatures with 5 colors. I did however start some different kind of painting. I have started to doContinue reading “February Down”
First two days down! Both of these are from the Reaper Bones 4 Kickstarter. I’m not sure if they are at retail or not yet. Now to get started on day 3.

This is obviously well above the 30 mini mark but this only adds up to 30 unique sculpts. Continue reading “Minivember: The Last, A Final Update”
Photos are finally up. Hope you enjoy! MInivember 2017 EDIT: Most of the minis were from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter so some may not be available for purchase yet.
This week’s blog is about things that are helpful but not necessary to have around. “So what kind of things might I want to have around?” First and foremost in my opinion are notebooks. Notebooks are handy for many things in the miniature painting world. You can use them to do things like plan outContinue reading “Tools of the Trade: Handy Things”
