  1. Like the latest mutant and nice to see them in a group! πŸ™‚ Nice to hear the diorama is progressing well! Enjoyed reading your thoughts on CMON, since I know you’ve felt that some people there have been quite negative, so I’m pleased you feel that the blogging route is helpful/useful/good for you!

    1. Seeing the mutants together was pretty inspiring for me too! I had kind of forgotten that I had mentioned the lack of acceptance of my LOTR painting and while it is true that I feel people on CMON weren’t all that inspired by it, they actually aren’t the people I have a grudge against (which makes me sound quite petty now that I’ve typed it out!). I will get into that one of these days when I’m feeling good and salty! πŸ˜€ Blogging is a lot of fun because of great people like you, John! Your support is greatly appreciated πŸ™‚

  2. Nice looking group of super mutants! What are a group of super mutants called anyway? A gang? A Covid?

    Looking forward to seeing what you have done with the Master of Laketown, lots of details on that character.

    1. I don’t think there is a name for them come to think of it. I think a gang or band of super mutants sounds good though! Even running into four like in the picture could mean you’re in some trouble in Fallout as they’re pretty strong πŸ™‚

      The Master almost has too many fine details for his own good. We’ll see if I can get into a flow or rhythm painting him in spite of that this week. I’ll be curious to see what you think of him when I do get him done as well!


  3. Very nice work on all the mutants. Even the earlier one looks great but naturally things improve with practice that’s for sure. I appreciate there are plenty of products out there but I found Humbrol Matt Varnish works a treat. Hope your Polish order comes through OK. International purchases can often be frustrating. Looking forward to seeing the next stage of the diorama and I think you are right to stick with the Blog. I am probably being a little unfair but as a generalisation I have found a lot of other forums are made up of people who are a bit up themselves and provide little engagement or encouragement. We have a great little community on wordpress. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for the kind words and for the recommendation! I’ve heard of Humbrol but I’m not sure how available it is here in the states. I shall do some researching and see what I can find πŸ™‚

      I agree with you on the forums sentiment too. I don’t fault the people for not being interested in my work. If you like Warhammer and that is what you want to see, then the vast majority of what I paint isn’t going to appeal to you. Sadly, I think there was a tendency for people who painted other things not to reach out and leave a positive comment as a result. I always try to avoid doing that and it is usually not that hard to say something nice even if it is something I don’t know much about, like painting Napoleonic’s for example. I can still appreciate the detail in the uniforms and the dedication fans of that period of history put into their miniatures!

    1. Warhammer and 40k are a huge portion of the market when it comes to wargaming so it is something you have to deal with and accept to a certain extent even if you don’t play or paint them. I think we both do that well with how we dabble with them and our other interests.

  4. Great job on the super mutant. He looks quite swoll with all those muscles and dangerous with the hammer. πŸ˜€

    I don’t have any experience with CMON so can’t say much about it. But I am super glad that you are enjoying the blogging experience. I have found that blogging tends to create a community of like minded individuals and can be very rewarding. Bloggers also tend to be more positive. I do like following your blog and seeing your projects come to life, and I enjoy the way you write and your support of my own lame blog. πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks, Stew! I wanted to come up with a title that embraced sledgehammer or smashing someone’s face in but couldn’t come up with anything witty enough. I’m sure you would have done better πŸ˜€

      The positivity is what I enjoy most about blogging. I can appreciate many different things even if I myself never play or paint anything in a particular genre. I appreciate that there are likeminded individuals out there as well. You’re being a bit too humble about your blog too. Its always a great read! πŸ™‚


      1. The only thing I could think of is there was a band called Sister Sledge but all the Super Mutants seem to be male so that didn’t work well. I like your idea best πŸ™‚


  5. Those Super Mutants are looking fierce and awesome! These poses/sculpts are really cool and you painted them wonderfully. Can’t wait to see them in action in a battle report. πŸ˜€

    And I agree that blogging is a very nice thing. πŸ™‚ It is very nice to see and read about different hobbies and aspects of those hobbies.

    1. Thank you and I agree on the poses πŸ™‚ They did a nice job with these and they’re better and more interesting than a lot of human-sized miniatures for some reason.

      While the One Ring forums are a very positive space, I think blogging gives you a great window into other people’s hobby and I really enjoy that part of it too πŸ™‚
