  1. Zombies - Bringing bodies together By Lycane


    Today I would like to share my experiences with running Zombicide demos and events as a member of the Legion.


    Zombies are and have always been a huge influence on human culture. There is a weird dynamic of fear/fascination with these undead walkers. This is one of the reasons why Zombicide has appealed to a large number of gamers throughout the community. Some of the other things that appeal to games about Zombicide are: simple rules, cooperative game play, and iconic characters. ...

  2. Road to Crystal Brush: Origins 2014

    Origins was this past weekend and with it the Road To Crystal Brush as well. For me, it was an exciting convention because I got to have my first go as a judge for a miniature painting contest, the Crystal Brush.

    I have been spending the last several months studying under the amazing Jen Haley learning how to be a better painter and also what to look for in a competition piece. Not only is this a lot of fun, but I get to put my art degree and painting knowledge ...
  3. In the 21st century there is only paint mishaps.

    Hi, welcome back! So my first post was a little rambunctious because It was early in the morning and I was running on no sleep. Not to mention I haven't written in years so my grammar and stuff were pretty bad. I hope that will get better, along with my painting skills over the course of this blog!
    So, down to the nitty gritty. I primed up my 5 mooks (turns out mommy did hug them, go figure.) very very poorly. I think the thick, tacky coat I put on was a product of 1 or 2 things, namely ...
  4. Ballad of an enterprising painter. or, whatever.

    Hey there readers, if there are any, and if not that's cool too. I know I'm a newb, not hatin' just tellin' it like it is. So if there aren't any readers, i totally get it! No credibility = no interest = I might as well be posting to myself (which I guess I am anyway because this is a blog... anyway). The sad thing is I have been a newb for a long friggin' time. I originally started painting minis way back in 2000, maybe earlier, it's all a haze really, I was just a wee tot. I was inspired by my ...

  5. Painterly Advice

    I'm a professional painter and I love it. Every day I go into the office or sit at my desk and paint and enjoy every minute of it. While it's not easy, it's something I'm passionate about so it makes the long hours shrink. I can spend four hours painting and think nothing of it. I don't work because this is what I want to do with my life. I'm also fairly new to being a successful miniature painter, just a little over and year and half. So while I'd like to offer a couple choice pieces of advice ...

    For my first blog post, (since I should get in the habit of rambling) I've decided it should be a brief introduction about myself and what I do. For those of you that don't know me, I am Elizabeth Beckley, and I am a full time professional miniature painter. Yes, this is what I do to pay the bills and I love it! I have currently been painting professionally for a year and a half and currently work in-house at CoolminiorNot as a studio painter. I also do freelance ...
  7. My Legion (by peacemongrel)

    My Legion.

    Two weekends ago I had the pleasure of being at the CMON Expo and getting to do what I enjoy most.

    Also during the weekend I got to introduce a long time gaming friend to the range of games we as Legionnaires support. ...
