  1. Life and Camo patterns of the worlds

    Haven't been updating this blog for a while. I am painting but much slower nowadays. Other things are piling up. As somebody mentioned it " I was surprises to find out that real life sucks". There are three items in a various state of disarray, including a squad of blood angel terminators, nurgle blightdrone and new commission of a lone wolf. I will post terminators and the lone wolf as soon as manage to take pictures and for this I actually have to come home early for once.

  2. Space Hulk - Brother Deino

    I finally finished this guy. I have almost no time lately. May be after they fire me I will start painting full time but it hasn't happen yet.  Anyway, I still have issues with taking pictures of red minies, but thanks to Dragonsreach and Spacemunkie I think I am getting better. I made some changes compared to my previous space hulk guy. For example, I ditched all white heraldry in favor of NMM gold and I replaced purple gems by blue. Since this guy is a renowned sharpshooter I figured that ...
  3. Tree of Gondor

    is real. Spotted in Washington DC  and so is Shelob... also found nearby    
  4. Some logo/banner designs.

    From time to time I do various computer assisted designs an collages. Nothing too professional but occasionally it comes out pretty dissent. Here is a logo that I concocted for a certain gaming club, that could be easily converted to a banner. In fact I am working on a renegade version of this. This was done in Corel Draw and exists in a variety of vector formats, if anybody is interested -yell, I see what I can do  
  5. Long Island Historical Miniature Collectors Society Show 2009

    This is my first time participating in this particular event and first time ever participating in Show and competition that involved mainly historic miniature painters. In the end I have mixed feelings about this event but first thing first. The event took place in the Freeport community centers on the Long Island, which is about 30 minutes drive from my house… anywhere closer and it would be in my living room; so this was a big plus. The two main parts of the event – vendors ...
  6. Inquisitorial land raider. More flatwork

    I finally finished everything I wanted to finish on this mini. The bad thing about commission is that you actually have to paint them , the good thing about commissions is that you can experiment and paint things that you wouldn't normally paint. This particular "mini" by the nature of request involved doing substantial amount of coherent freehand that I have never done before. Well, as a confidence building measure it was very useful.

  7. Sex Life of Fruit Bats

    OooooooK.....So, I am getting mo dose of daily reading and in one of the journal I usually read (very scientific journal, btw) I found.... THIS!Now, this really made me laugh. I think I just got my nomination for IGNobel prize for this year

  8. Happy Halloween

  9. Only ONE USA Games Day this year?

    Well, the rumors circulating for a couple of weeks were now given form on the Bells of lost Souls. No substance yet, but considering last year rumors about the LA Games day I am afraid we might end up with a single Games day. Original BoLS article is here
  10. Space Hulk - Brother Goriel

     Ok, This is my first ever painted space marine. Surprisingly this model was rather difficult for me for a number of reasons. 1) I never painted space marines before, I am not familiar with SMs heraldry, insignias, mythology and background. So a number of details was not really obvious how to paint. THis guy is a concoction of various blood angels I found here, on coolminiornot and various (often conflicting) advises ofered by my local people. 2) I have major problem painting red. This is not ...
