World War I Ottomans  
August 6th, 2014

You can't have Lawrence and the Arab revolt without having some Ottomans to square them off against. These ones were also part of the Lead Painter's League. Check them out in the Ottoman Turk Gallery.

Up next is probably zombies... I have zombies coming out of my ears!!!

 
 
Lawrence and the Arab Revolt  
August 1st, 2014

Another group of figures that I originally painted for the Lead Advenure league and finally got around to posting pictures of! I honestly thought that I'd be the only person to do the Arab Revolt in the final round, but boy was I wrong. I think that most people did the Arab Revolt, or something in the same region... Pretty funny really! Check them out in the new Arab Revolt Gallery.

I have a collection of Ottoman Turks from the period too that I'll be posting up shortly. After that, likely I'll get around to taking some pictures of the tens of zombies that I've been painting lately for Zombicide... A sea of dead gray corpses!

 
 
More vikings to join the ranks  
July 7th, 2014

It's literally been two-and-a-half years since I've painted some vikings. I know, it's shameful for sure... I painted these guys for the second round of the Lead Painter's League over on the Lead Adventure Forum. They lost miserably, but it was still fun and a great excuse to paint some more vikings! I have a whole box of these Gripping Beast dark-age warriors. They're good, but they're not quite vikings unfortunately... But they can be fixed up to fit the bill, they're very well sculpted, and they're plastic! Check them out in the Swedish Viking Gallery.

Next up, perhaps some more Lead Adventure figs that I'm catching up on, or some more of those modern Zombicide zombies. I have a number of them in the pipes, but these days I never know when I'll be able to finish them! until next time...

 
 
Painting Red Hair  
June 30th, 2014

It's been a while since I've done an article, but today I've got one that was requested by a few people after seeing the red hair that I'd recently done on one of my Zombicide survivors. Check out the Painting Bright Red (Orange) Hair Article in the articles section of the site!

I still have a few miniatures left to take photos of, and a few others to post pictures of so expect those in the next few weeks... Until then, enjoy!

 
 
On come the zeds  
June 26th, 2014

The Zombies have arrived! These zombies are some of the best zombie figures I've seen to date to be honest, great sculpts, lots of detail, but perhaps not enough variation? I've painted the same set of legs so far three times and I haven't repeated a singe figure! That is, three different zombies have the same legs! Oh well, they're nice enough though. Check the first two out in the Zombicide Zombies Gallery.

 
 
Four more survivors...  
June 25th, 2014

Four more Zombicide survivors! So now I have completed all of the survivors for the first game as well as for the toxic-city mall expansion. These figs aren't all that easy to paint given their extra detail, many different colours, and classy character, so they're actually coming along pretty quickly considering! This time we have Amy, Doug, Elsa, and Neema, and I am pretty happy with all of them. Check them out in the Zombicide Survivors Gallery! I'm kinda burnt out on these survivor figures at this point though...

That being said, I'm just finishing off some zombies as well, so stay tuned for that! I've also finally gotten around to taking proper pictures of my Lead Painter's League figures, so keep your eyes peeled for those in the coming weeks! Until next time...

 
 
Two more Zombicide survivors...  
June 15th, 2014

Okay, so more zombicide figs this time around! Josh and Ned make it to the fray. After these two, only two more survivors before I'm done with the survivors for the original Zombicide game! Now, there are only two more games to go after that, and then two more games coming up after that; apparently there's another zombicide kickstarting looming on the horizon! I have to admit that the addition of a competitive angle doesn't really make it more desireable for me, but apparently it allows the difficulty to scale with the number of players, which is quite valuable in a cooperative mode. In any case, check out the two new survivors in the Zombicide Survivors Gallery. Until next time!

 
 
Zombicide!  
June 7th, 2014

I know that Zombicide is now terribly old. Like, years old, and that everyone and their dog has painted the figures. The thing is, I've finally gotten around to playing this game somewhat regularly. It's a great game, and a lot of fun to play. I honestly thought that I wouldn't get back to it, but I'm happy that I have! First up is Phil. I picked Phil because he's easy to paint, straight forward colour scheme, and still a cool figurine with a lot of character. Check him out in the Zombicide Survivors Gallery.

Up next are likely the figures associated with entries in my Lead Painter's League entries. Over the past ten weeks I've been submitting new or older images of figs to compete against the top-notch gentlemen and women who also took part. It was fun, but I wasn't allowed to post images of the figs anywhere else. So, be prepared for that!

 
 
Mice and Mystics - The Heroes!  
April 10th, 2014

Finally got some pictures together of the heroes from the Mice and Mystics game. These figures are pretty cool, and now that I'm done, this is officially the first game that I've painted all of the figures for! Yes, I failed to paint all of the figures for Shadows Over Camelot... and I've heard recently that that game has had a resurgence in popularity. In any case, check out the heroes from Mice and Mystics in the Mice and Mystics Gallery.

Things are still moving along in the Lead Adventure Painter's League, so don't forget to check out the great entries. They are updated every week! As for what's next? Well, I have one picture left to post from Mice and Mystics, and that's the centipede. Not sure when I'll get to it though because it seems that I've forgotted to take pictures of it and it's already chipped! That will teach me to let the kids play with the figures ;) Instead, I'll likely be posting some more vikings. Until then...

 
 
Mice and Mystics arrive  
April 2nd, 2014

Ah, it's been a while, but I finally have more figures to show off! Actually I've had a few sets of figs painted for a while, but I'd been saving them up! What am I saving them up for you may ask? Well, to be honest it's the Lead Painter's League over on the Lead Adventure Forum. It's an annual painting competition round robin sorta deal that I've always meant to enter but never gotten around to. In any case, they're on round two so I suggest you get over there and check it out! There are a number of fantastic figs on show so it's worth the time.

In any case, my first set of figures was the heroes from Mice and Mystics. I have them painted, but not quite photographed. So, to start, I have the enemies of the mice ready. Check them out in the Mice & Mystics gallery. I'll post again next week with the heroes... and maybe even that centipede... Until then!
