This week’s update is action-packed with triumphs, humiliations, and lots of pictures. First up, I have made a fair amount of progress on Hellboy this week. I think it might be useful for me to do a side-by-side comparison image of last week to this week. Here is what the front of the mini from … Continue reading More Hellboy, New Acquisitions, and a Miserable Room Tour
Forget the drama of Harry, Charles, and William. The real King of Britain is here! That’s right, Hellboy gets that title in the Wild Hunt volume of the comics, which happens to be one of my favorites. And that is the inspiration for the sculpt I’m working on comes from. It also happens to be … Continue reading Hellboy – King of Britain
This past week, I hit a brick wall on the Witch King miniature I’ve been working on for this year’s Golden Demon. As a result, I am no longer going to work on the project with an eye towards entering it in a painting competition. I will explain why and some lessons I’ve learned along … Continue reading Making and Learning From Competition Painting Mistakes
I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough painting progress to show off for another update this year but I’ve just about managed. There is a lot of other stuff I want to discuss too so strap in for one last, meaty update in 2022. The main attraction is the Golden Demon project so here’s a … Continue reading MESBG – A Foul Steed
One of the most common questions I see with miniature wargames is: Where do I start or what should I buy first? This is a fair question as there are different ways to get started with Fallout depending on what your interests are. Since I focus on Fallout 4, that is what will be covered … Continue reading Where Do I Start with Fallout Wasteland Warfare?
Well, this week certainly did go as I expected hobby-wise. I had started working on the Golden Demon project and out of nowhere, I got the desire to work on something else. I started splitting my time between the two miniatures and by the end of the week, I was painting the something else full-time. … Continue reading Fallout – Exploding Things
Whether you’re a fan of Fallout and have never played a miniatures game or you’re an experienced wargamer who is considering jumping into this game, its natural to have some questions before you decide to spend money and time on a new game. My aim is to give you an overview of Fallout Wasteland Warfare … Continue reading Should You Start Playing Fallout Wasteland Warfare?
Let’s get the unpleasant news out of the way first. Not too long ago I mentioned the threat of layoffs and well, they happened pretty much out of nowhere this week. I was lucky to not be affected by them but the whole experience was pretty jarring to say the least. The company I work … Continue reading Hellboy – Roger Returns and More Website Metrics
Its good to be back after taking a week off. There’s plenty to talk about so I won’t waste any time. The first thing I got done was another caveman. Like the previous two, these minis don’t take long at all to paint so it was nice to get another done quick. I showed off … Continue reading Savage Core and Hellboy – Neanderthals and a Homunculus
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
