Paint some Trollbloods

  So started in on some Trollbloods I am painting up for fun.  Base skin and a couple highlights in I forgot a hand on one, so I will have to get that in the next session. Atrr that they will get another highlight and some color in the shadow and then onto the rest of the colors.

Commission Painting

  So I am just getting back to painting in a consistent manner, I have always found deadlines to be helpful.  Since I don't play any of the games anymore painting an army isn't a thing that I must finish for my own needs but seeing an army painted across the table was always the highlight of the event for me.

  Are you going to win any kind of painting competition with my work? No, at least not for the time being.  You will get an army painted to a Tabletop standard or higher as I want to push myself and my skills with each army.

Right now I am trying to focus on Flames of War and Warmachine/Hordes.  I have done the odd RPG miniature and would be willing to discuss the opportunity.  As for the cost of service, I would be willing to work for miniatures as long as the client covers shipping both ways and a nominso fee for materials.  I am looking at charging the retail cost of models for the paint job but for large armies we can work towards a deal.

Later days,


Back in the Saddle Again

  It has been about 2 years since my last post, I have been playing The Star Wars off far less mainly due to the release scedule being limited and the support all seemed to go to Destiny just killed my drive for the game.  While I still buy the packs I just can't invest in the competitive side of the game, I'm sure Legion is not going to help keep people playing the after thought Star Wars game.

  So by my last post I believe Doomtown was dead...again. Now it will be re-rebooted, again glad to see it back but not sure if it will be able to have a play group in my area. After running events for a half a year and attending every other event in town it seems to be a game that if you had a robust meta at the beginning it would be sustainable, if your area stuggled it was an uphill fight to get a decent turnout. Which made the stores not want to buy lots which was understandable so no competitive scene.

  Now we have Legend of the Five Rings back, it got a complete overhaul of the mechanics which makes the game feel less huge swings and slow economic development and more tactile plays and resource management. There are still the times when you draw dead but that is nigh impossible to design out of a game that has chance involved.  I am unsure how the competitive side of the game will develope since they seem to be trying a lot of different league type models with the game.  Also both faction I played are missing from the game so I feel empty in a game that was all about personal investment.

  Onto miniature painting, I have gotten back into it. I am trying to work on getting back my brush control while working on my speed.  I would love to work more with my airbrush so I am trying to use it more often.  I cleared a few projects of the painting desk and hope to take commissions any time now. 

On the table we are going to do Dragon's Rampant in 6mm inspired by, she will be using the Microworld Games Lizardmen and I will be picking up the Elephantmen for my faction. I have a batch of Trollblood s to work on and nothing after that is planned out. I would love to take commissions for Flames of War, Warmahordes and odds and ends for RPGs.

Now onto the pic dump:
