Shadows over Camelot finally complete - and on eBay  
May 16th, 2018

I have been working on painting this game since March 2008. I gave up on them on March 24th, 2008 and said that hopefully I'd return to them later. About ten years later!!! I can't believe I've had that game for ten years... In any case, I finally painted the last four figures, and it really was just because I decided to finally sell it and I didn't want to sell it with four unpainted - but base coated - figures. So here they are finally in the Shadows over Camelot Image Gallery.

Shadows over Camelot is a great game and a good co-op game, but it's really a co-op secret spy type game that ends up being all vs. one, which isn't my favourite format, so I'm selling it off. Check out the eBay auction here: Shadows Over Camelot Board Game with Pro Painted Figures.

 
 
Some D&D figs from Legend of Drizzt  
May 14th, 2018

I had this slime monster figure from the Legend of Drizzt Dungeons and Dragons board game on my painting desk for years, and so when I decided to sell the game - I played it only twice just this past week - I thought I'd finish it first! It's a tough one to paint because of all the blending, but it was fun. I also posted a single figure impage of the Drow Wizard from the same game. I used the Drow Wizard as The Black Spider in my Dungeons and Dragons game, as well as part of the spider entry in the lead Painter's League last year, but I didn't have a single picture with the figure alone. Check out the images starting here in the D&D Image Gallery. Additionally included in the game is the green dragon that I also painted for Dungeons and Dragons. Check out the eBay listing here: Dungeons and Dragons Legend of Drizzt Game (used) with some pro-painted miniatures.

It's been nice clearing out my closet of old games that I've never played. The excitement of a new game gives way to hope that I'll eventually play it, which gives way to a kinda stressful 'I should play that game...' mind set, which isn't really healthy. So passing these games on to someone who might actually enjoy them feels great! I'm also passing on the Ghost Stories games as well.

 
 
Dreadball back on the block  
May 1st, 2018

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of the Dreadball RefBot and the Dreadballs that I painted a few years ago... It took so long but they are finally here! Check out the images in the Dreadball Image Gallery. Why you might ask? Am I finally starting to play some Dreadball after five plus years since I've looked at the figures?!?

The truth is I've been thinking about selling them for a while, and now's the time. Spring cleaning has me finally with some extra closet space! Keep your eyes peeled for an eBay auction Dreadball lot in the net days or so.

 
 
Last Mice & Mystics figure photographed!  
April 23rd, 2018

I had this painted for as long as I had the other ones painted, but I never got around to taking and posting pictures. After long last, here it is, the Mice & Mystics board game millipede! Check out the images in the Mice and Mystics Image Gallery. Why am I taking a picture now, after all this time? Well, I'm currently selling my copy of Mice & Mystics, along with the painted figures and I thought I'd snap a picture of the figure while I had the chance!

I have four Shadows over Camelot figures on the painting desk at the moment. The plan is to finish those off so that the whole set is done, and then put that one on eBay as well. I have to make space in the closet and I haven't played either Shadows Over Camelot or Mice and Mystics in years. With Gloomhaven and the other co-op boardgames I have, those two just don't make the cut. Until next time!

 
 
Lead Adventure League Season 11 finished!  
July 8th, 2017

The Lead Painter's League finally finished and I managed to squeek out a third-place spot! It was a great time and I might even take part again next year, but we'll see... It is a lot of work, and ten weeks is a lot of weeks! Check out the images in the Lead Painter's League Season 11 Image Gallery.

 
 
Lead Painter's League gallery  
March 20th, 2017

So now that I'm officially entering my second Lead Painter's League - season 11 - I thought that I'd create an actual gallery for each season that I enter. The first and only previous season I entered was Season 8 way back in 2014! So, I threw together all of my entries in order and put them in the Lead Painter's League Season 8 gallery.

What is the Lead Painter's League you ask? Well, it's a contest put on annually where all interested painters submit 10 rounds worth of figure images. It runs over 10 weeks and it's really a lot of fun just to see the entries posted every week. It's also pretty fun to take part as well. They are still taking entries too, so if you can take pictures of some nice new figs, you should get in on it. Check out the details on the Lead Adventure Forum here.

There are rules around when things can be posted, so I'll create a new gallery for season 11 and start posting my pictures there one week after they are posted in the League Forum.

 
 
More survivors for the grinder!  
March 17th, 2017

I was going through some old stuff the other day and found a bunch of pictures of miniatures that I had put together but had never published... I was a little surprised at my past self for doing all that work and not publishing, however after a few moments of thought I realized that the images weren't all that great. It's likely that I intended to take some more images of higher quality and come back to it, but I never did! Additionally, I may have been considering saving those figures for the Lead Adventure forum Lead Painter's League. The deal there is that you can't have published images of the pictures on the internet prior to entering the in League competition if you want to maximize your value. But whatever my past self was thinking, check out the images in the Zombicide Survivors Image Gallery.

Speaking of the Lead Painter's League, I will be entering again this year for the second time. I have some figures that I haven't taken pictures of that I've painted recently, so here we go! Head over to check it out on the Lead Adventure Forum. Until then, I do have some more zombies... yes, more zombies. How many zombies does on need?!? Among other things that I should be posting soon.

 
 
Dire boar  
February 6th, 2017

More monsters for my Dungeons & Dragons campaing! This one is a dire boar for the druid in my play group. The thing about this is that it's unlikely that it will ever get played; the brown bear - and now polar bear - is just much more powerful. There's really no reason not to use the most powerful animal... In any case check out the image in the D&D Image Gallery.

I'm working on some terrain now, again for the D&D action. I am also working on some Bretonnians. I've picked up some more knights and dug out some men-at-arms as well. I'm trying to round out that Bretonnian Kings of War army. Despite the latest work I imagine that I'll be adding my Empire figs in with the Bretonnians for the time being... Stay tuned for those!

 
 
Lonely Saber Tooth  
December 31st, 2016

I have been painting, but it's been tough to get the site updated these days. I haven't really had a personal computer for the last few years... I've been using my work computer, my communal family computer, a tablet or two, a phone... None of which are ideal for anything involved, which website updating can be. I have to get the pictures, get them all formatted and spiffed up, upload the pictures, update the content, etc, etc. This year I gave myself a holiday present and now I have my very own computer again! So, it's possible I will be updating a bit more often.

So yeah, a saber-tooth tiger! This is a great figure for Dungeons and Dragons especially when you have a druid in the group. Also, who knows, there may be one hidden in a cart somewhere also! Check out the images in the Dungeons and Dragons Image Gallery.

 
 
Severic the Wisened Cleric  
October 3rd, 2016

Back after some time... Finished up this conversion/painting of a Cleric player character for the latest D&D action! Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but I still haven't quite got the hang of taking pictures in the new office space... To be honest, it's likely due to lack of effort :) Still, I'm quite happy with the figure overall. The pole arm was a fun conversion, even if the pose is a bit stiff. Check out the images in the Dungeons and Dragons Image Gallery.
