This week was a slow one for me hobby-wise, especially in terms of motivation but even with that, I managed to finish a couple of things. While I was initially motivated to work on the failed Overpass terrain project, outside of that, I’ve been dragging a bit on painting Fallout miniatures. I think the combination … Continue reading Fallout – Assaultron and Some Terrain
It has been an eventful week so I’m going to bring back the rapid and random thoughts format for today’s update. I have not worked for over a week. Why you ask? I spilled water on my laptop on Thursday last week and my company has not been able to get me a replacement and … Continue reading Hellboy – Professor Broom and His Bane
There is a lot to discuss this week so I won’t waste any time. I managed to finish some more doors for Hellboy today. These haven’t been varnished so they look a little more matte than they will when all is said and done but I’m happy to have eight out of fifteen doors done … Continue reading Hellboy and Fallout – Manual Labor
Who is the greatest superhero ever? Its not Superman or Batman. Its not Spider-man or Wolverine. The real answer is Lobster Johnson. Who is Lobster Johnson, you ask? He is a secondary character from Hellboy that is so good, he got his own series of comic books. Lobster is very similar to The Shadow, for … Continue reading Hellboy – Fear the claw!
While it was frequently delayed (not unlike Gandalf in the books now that I think about it), I was able to wrap up the diorama this week. With creative works, I think you can be too close to what you make and start to lose perspective on it. With this one, I probably have been … Continue reading MESBG – The Bounder’s Duty Diorama
Stop me if you’ve heard this before. I make some progress on the diorama only to not have some kind of supply that I need and then have to take the week off from it while I wait to get said item. That is exactly what happened again this week so I don’t have anything … Continue reading Hellboy – Doors to Somewhere?
I’m happy to report that this past week was much better. I got some forward momentum on the diorama and have a few things to show off. First up, I finally got to put my green stuff and tools to work and patched up this little guy. Can you see any rough spots or where … Continue reading MESBG – A Shirriff joins the fray
It has been another disjointed week of hobbying for me. I honestly wasn’t sure that I would have enough to do a post this week but I just managed to get enough done this morning to feel comfortable doing so. I’ve spent a lot of the week waiting to resume working on the diorama which … Continue reading Hellboy – Grigori
Progress on the diorama continues but not as fast or smoothly I would like. I managed to get the base sculpted, sanded, and ready for the next steps which is to be frank, one of the less exciting parts of the process so that’s good. I’ve also been chipping away at the remaining minis that … Continue reading MESBG – Hobbit-sized sculpts can cause headaches
Its a special double-stuffed update this week as I’ve had two weeks of painting saved up. It was kind of hard to pick a title since I worked on two different projects. Let’s start with Hellboy though and say our farewell to the frogs. I finished the last four frogs in the box. I tried … Continue reading Hellboy – The Frogs’ Last Croak
