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

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
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
