Fixing Up My Musketeer Miniatures

I have been quite taken with the Musketeer Miniatures line of figures for the Very British Civil War, they are one of only maybe two or three people out there making figures specifically for this somewhat unique setting.  They are sculpted by Paul Hicks and quite simple to paint.  My only problem so far has […]

Dredd – WIP

I’ve been reading old Judge Dredd comics this summer and it’s got me thinking about painting them for a while. I’ll write more about them when they have the final touches done. I had a problem where Dreddy was bigger than the bases I use, so I hit him with a file and shortened the […]

Neo-Sovs and Zombies WIP

I have been dying to start this new project for a while now and the near wrap up (2 months away) of my FIW extravaganza is around the corner.  These are my first test models for a “The Dead of Winter”. Some Copplestone Neo-Sovs that will serve as the troops of The People’s Free City […]

5 Figures in Twenty-four Hours

I’ve been at a conference away from home for a few days now. One of the advantages of this is that I have had more painting time than I usually do in a house with three small children. I typically paint twelve figures in a month as I usually paint about two and a half […]

Further Canoe Progress

I’ve had a bit more time to work on the canoe. This time instead of using sand paper, I went whole hog and broke out the dremmel tool. I threw out a lot of dust, but was able to work on it at a much faster pace. I really like where it’s at right now, […]

A Few Minutes Work

I had a few minutes while my wife was in the shower to try shaping the canoe. It went pretty well, I’m loping forward to getting some more time soon. After looking at my reference, I think I will have to try and put more of a point on the end, it’s definately a canoe […]

Make My Own Canoe!? Sure…

When I made the decision to leave 6mm behind and try something different, my main motivation was creating something with personality. Individuals and places rather than troops and battlefields. One of my main inspirations has come from a poster on the Lead Adventures forum, Silent Invader. I have seen what he has created and painted […]
