Some beginners resources for miniature painting that I found very helpful:
A guide to thinning paint and handling it once thinned:
An indispensable video series that covers all sorts of topics:
A great painter with clear and easy to understand guides to ease into advanced techniques:
An absolute treasure trove of tutorials on all sorts of topics, but also notable for their focus on working joyfully:
Hot damn, have you seen how much tabletop RPG you get for $5 in the itchio BLM bundle?
The Lancer core book and Blades in the Dark alone are notable inclusions, but there's all sorts of cool looking smaller games as well. Corvid Court sticks out as particularly neat. Let me know if you see anything in there that deserves more attention.
Painted some spacecraft interior terrain for the campaign. Was a bit in a rush and it shows on some elements, but it's good enough for play. I'll add a bit on some of the boxes and the shelf-things but the rest will stay as it is.
I think I've worked out my camera situation, for real this time. A test Skink for a Blood Bowl team, "The Saur Losers". My bf is from Cleveland so there is a little dig at the Browns there. Exploring some textures and practicing NMM. I love the new BB Lizardmen so much, it really was a joy. With luck I'll finish the team sometime this year... or not.
Another year entering my hobby group painting contest. Not pleased with my work. Am I ever? Oh well, on to the next. Mini is from the Humblewood set, which are really beautiful and crisp prints. Somewhat soft pvc, bastard to clean. I normally use a hairdryer to dry glazes but it went totally floppy with any heat, a hilarious surprise.
Wizkids is experimenting with national paint nights in the US-
Supposedly they'll be doing a different figure every month. I did this last night at a local store, it's good fun to meet other painters.
Do I still hate taking photos? Yes I dooooo! But here is my Gobbapalooza that took Best Squad at Pax Unplugged. I need to figure out my backdrop situation, this grey is too light and it's kinda blowing out the colors. Tried a different one that was too dark and it exaggerated the reflected light to an insane degree no matter how I adjusted the settings.
I love to paint miniatures! Working on a Seraphon army for Age of Sigmar.
