  1. Army List

    Well, my Imperial Guard army, the Kandran 1st, is finally nearing decent progress.  I've begun work on the revised army list, which I'll post as soon as it's finished.  I have already chosen the doctrines:1.  Carapace Armor, because 4+ is better than 5+,2.  Priests, just look at the fanatical rule,3.  Heavy Weapon Platoons, because heavy bolters kick butt,4.  Techpriests, for armor support,5.  Storm Troopers, because of their ability to get right in the ...
  2. NMM is kicking my butt

    I love the way its working so far but my god, its work intensive.  I am a slow painter anyway but dayum.  The worst part is I am looking at the models I have primed or in some form of WIP, and wow, I need to stop assembling and start painting.  I have something like 2500 (possibly more) points of black templars in various states of primage and paintage.  This of course doesnt count anything I haven't assembled yet, though they may go to my Imperial Torches chapter that goes ...
  3. Got my camera back

    Here is my attempt at tyranids. Some more or less random Zoanthrop

  4. Puppy Training

    I have a new puppy.  His name is Ollivander.  He pees every thirty minutes (thats a little extreme but it is often).  I am so frustrated with him.  He is cute lovable and has a great doggie personality.  He seems to be broken of taking a dump where he will, but the the pissing in the dining room is getting to me.  Nothing I do seems to work.My wife asks me if I spank him when I catch him, and I say "No, I just admonish him sternly."  Well, my wife the ...
  5. Welcome Message

    Greetings, one and all!  Welcome to my first blog.  This is a space generally dedicated to mini painting, but just like real life there are bound to be many detours and diversions along the way.  C'mon in and have a look around!

  6. Interesting miniature Store

    While being temporarily banished to Albany I stumbled upon great store here. The name of the place is Zombie Planet and it is located at 1238 Central Ave. This place sells miniatures from a number of major lines GW, Epic, Gothic, D&D, Reaper Racham, privateer press and so on and so forth. What was really exciting is that they carry  a number of major paint lines under the same roof - GW, vallejo, both model and game lines; Reaper - both Pro and MAster, and Oh Joy P3!!!. This is actually ...
  7. golden demon uk project

    a few months ago i started gathering my first ideas of what my entry would be. being an avid kroot fan, i had to give another shot at making a kroot master shaper, this time being completed on time and up to standard. this year i do not have the option of entering youngbloods, so this entry requires my main focus (only entering one model)

    after messing around with a few parts i left the project for about 3 months because of the break i taken from games workshop (some times it has to be ...
  8. D&D Miniatures Gen Con Indy 2007 trophies

    I've been involved as a Judge for the D&D Miniatures games at various big shows (Indy, So Cal, Winter Fantasy/D&D Experience) the last three years.   The second time I was at Gen Con I talked with the man in charge of Organized Play for the game and told him that I could paint the trophies that he awards, and he agreed.I recently finished up the next set of trophies that are to be prizes at Gen Con Indy 2007.  Some of these four figures are availible in the recent Night ...
  9. Chaos Champion WIP

    Here's a WIP I'm wokring on currently, the highlights don't quite pop just yet but I'm building on the white highlights slowly but surely...
  10. The joy of matte medium

    So, I decided to nail down my glazing that for quite some time was rather inconsistent. Plus, need to paint 30 dire avengers was also stimulating.  Anyway long story short. I used to use Liquitex glaze medium that did the job yet always created intense shining coat (Dude! can you read? It is GLAZE medium, stupid). So, today I tried matte medium from liquitex. Well, not only the shine is no more, my feeling is that the final result is much better as well. Whenever, I get my camera back I'll ...
