  1. You've come a long way baby!

    As I mentioned before, I've been totally out of the minature hobby for around 8 years. When I last was at least keeping tabs on things, Rackham miniatures (fiannas mostly!) were the rage; they were very difficult to get. I remember placing an order with an online shop for about 5 miniatures-and only getting 2 of them since the others had already sold out! Come back years later to find they're still hard to get because Rackham has decided to do those cheap, ugly prepainted lumps of crap! What were ...
  2. I hope it's like riding a bike

    Well. It's been almost 8 years since I've painted anything. Oh, I made a lousy attempt at picking it up again a few years ago, going as far as buying a bunch of Vallejo paints all kinds of prep tools, etc etc. (I think the little paint shaker was going a bit overboard) Only to kinda paint one figure and decide that I really, REALLY dislike Vallejo paints despite so many people seeming to rave about them.
    What made me get the urge again? I play online video games and maybe 2 months ago I decided ...
  3. The Chaos Divide 06

    Well a new update to an old project. Here is a thousand sons marine where i tried taking the nmm to an even better quality than what i've been doing. I reduced the amount of yellow in the mix and more in the brown and white area for the gold nmm, Im really happy with how it looks. Anyway enough of boring you all, here are the pics.  
  4. Back in the Saddle

    After an eight year hold on painting minis, I have decided to find time to give it another go.  I have been working with Necrons from GW as of late and have been experiementing with a Skaven Poison Wind Globadier.  I will post some stuff on the Necons when I dial them in a bit more, they are really intended on getting my brushes wet again in the wolrd of mini painting.  The Skaven is more of a test subject for some techniques I have not tried before such as NMM and Object Source lighting.  ...
  5. Techmarine 07

    Well after a few more nights of painting this dude, i have reached a point where im happy with him alot. The grey NMM on the backpack i tried not to put too much emphasis on it so that the focal point isn't taken away from the main part of the model too much. I think its worked well. The whole effect of the model is nice and i've tried to improve my contrast in colours and i think i've learnt alot painting this mini. Constructive comments and criticisms are always welcome.

  8. We're Back!

    We glued and primed and painted until we were blue in the face, and thanks to all our loyal clients, we we’re able to take a second honeymoon! We winged out of Utah, all the way to our old stomping grounds, central Florida - to see family and relax for three weeks. Without friends and customers like DQ, PG, CH, DD, SG, JC, GS, and the ever-present PS, none of this would have been possible. So - first and foremost – thanks to all of you for supporting us and our love of painting miniatures. ...

  10. Techmarine 06

    Ok for a big tutorial kinda. I apologise for the images initially, since photography has never been my strong suit. It does show my errors in painting but it can all be cleaned up. But you can see my blending isnt as smooth as i like.

    So i started on a brass/gold colour for the handle of the model. A base coat of scorched brown, don't worry about being too neat as you can always tidy up at different stages.


    This was then followed by several layers of bestial brown. Snake ...
