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
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!
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?
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
I am running out of clever frog-based titles at this point. I finished my second-to-last set of frog minis which surprisingly were pretty enjoyable to work on. When it comes to painting the same stuff over and over again, if you can pace yourself and put some time between when you paint the same sculpts, … Continue reading Hellboy – Are you tired of frogs yet?
