  1. First 40K Gameday of the Season

    As I mentioned in a previous blog my friends and I only play Warhammer 40K from October to April to as the summer months here in Minnesota are taken up with yardwork, house projects and travel. This last weekend was our first Gameday of the '07-'08 season.

    We had three new(ish) tables to play on this year. A swamp/marsh, which in my opinion, was the best looking table this time. A fall colored midland forest that I think could have used and extra small ruin or two to liven up the table ...
  2. Naked Ladies

    Its frustrating when I discover I need a color of paint that I don't have once a project is going, rather than before I start it. Now I have to wait for the colors to arrive via mail before I can continue on Artemis' shield.She's done otherwise, though I am going to re-do her crest. Oh well, I can continue to work on the next four ladies in this group while I await the mail. Oh sorry, you came here to see naked ladies, not listen to me whine about my paint stock. Here is Artemis sans shield with ...
  3. artemis WIP 2

    I worked out the midtones, and took the edge off the shadows a bit, and now I am quite happy with her flesh tones.


    This note is to say CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners of this years golden daemon UK 2007 and especially the winner of the slayer sword congratulations

  5. I finally finished one!

    <p>I finally finished&nbsp;a whole mini.&nbsp; I paint slow.&nbsp; I just can't seems to call something done.&nbsp; That's why I do competitions.&nbsp; I have a deadline and have to call something done by a certain date.&nbsp; In this case it was a mini for a small monthly competition at a group on Ebay.&nbsp; I'm especially pleased with this one because the whole thing gelled so easily.</p><p>What some people don't know (those who have followed the ...
  6. Athena (née artemis)

    A quick sneak peak at Hasslefree's Artemis, who is going in with my Cult of Athena / amazons.

    I was going for a bit more contrasty flesh then usual. . .I think I'm getting there. This was after some inks last night... now to bring in the mid tones a little, and I think I'll have a really nice finish.

  7. Mindless quoting without analysis or context - bad

    Ok, Just got back from incredibly boring and pointless “scientific” gathering and run into the CNN material on what Dr. Watson has to say about African intelligence. The original link is here This piece is actually very good example of how media operates. The material contains 664 words of which 44 belonged to actually what was said in the subject. Needles to say that the quote on CNN was taken completely out of context and cannot possibly invoke anything but righteous ...
  8. Eulen nach Athen tragen (amazon WIP)

    I'm doing these 'amazons' as a warrior cult of Athena.

    Her sacred animal is the Owl, which I decided months ago I was going to render on my amazon's shield in a motif ripped off / paying homage to, my friend's ( ovo ) street art work.

    Tonight I finally got to a point where I can share that part, yay! one

    Oh, and my order from Copplestone came in, so now I'm equipped to start on my contribution to the Frothers Gang Fight game planned ...

  9. Need advice on Amazons!

    I'm working on a batch of Amazons from Fortress Figures and having a bit of painters block. About half the unit is naked, and half the unit is wearing the drapey toga things. Its the togas I'm having trouble picking a colour for. I originally thought I'd do them all random colors, and I did one in a dusty brick red that looks nice.

    Now that I've finished most of the naked ones, I need to get on with the clothed ones and I've re-evaluated doing them all different and come to a mental ...

  10. 1985

    1985 is my current readership number.  I guess that is the number of views of my blog.  Thats pretty cool.  People are either bored enough, interested enough, or think I am laughable enough to come a see what I am droning on about.  But the number 1985 hits me like a historic brick.  Let's take a look at the year 1985:You friendly, neighborhood Thunderhawker was 12 years old.
    Ronald Reagan was sworn into a second term.
    "We are the world" was recorded ...
