Wait... that's a thing??
  • Customer:

    "People actually paint miniatures? I thought that was just a thing that people did in movies."

  • Me:

    "I've been doing it for years."

  • Customer:

    "How'd you get started?"

  • Me:

    "Well, it started with Dungeons & Dragons..."

    "Wait, that's really a thing too!!?"

A really good, simple primer on color theory as it pertains to mixing colors. A great tutorial for new miniature painters who aren’t sure how to go about mixing up their own highlight and shadow colors.

I’ve painted another of this model before.

I really hope that Reaper start producing a lot more of their “dungeon dressing” miniatures in Bonesium. In metal, they’re just far too expensive — similar models to this one are going for in excess of twenty bucks, which is way more than I’m happy to pay just to elevate my tabletop mapping above a box drawn on a bit of paper and marked “sarcophagus”.

I keep my eye out for this sort of tabletop-terrain thing at cheap novelty shops and so forth, but they come up a lot less often than I’d like.

Incredible finish on this!

Dust Tactics Punisher/Fireball Work in progress.
This has been a fun project so far. It’s the first project utilizing stencils cut with my new Silhouette Portrait. Both the hex pattern and the star were made with the machine.
This isn’t quite done, yet. There’s still a bit of detail work to be done.
