Decade old project has come to end.

The following pictures are of a coaching inn. The instructions for building it came from an old issue of White Dwarf and it's made of poster board, balsa wood and styrene shingles. Now, the title of this post is a bit misleading since I have yet to do the walled in yard, stables and gate that go with it. It is true though, that I started it roughly ten years ago and has been sitting in a box half done until late last week. Not bad for my first finished building if do say so myself. I'm kind of annoyed that the roof can't decide if it's tile or wood shingle but that's my problem.

The Dreaded Knoe Shoshu!

Looks like I totally overlooked the fact that yesterday was a Thursday. So, here is the Thursday Video, Friday edition:

At last! I have finished the Knoe Shoshu. I wasn't satisfied with the first try and scrapped it but I have it done now.


A few shots of the completed project:

I've started messing around with finishing up a coach house for Warhammer that I started some ten odd years ago. I figure that it's about time I had a good set of terrain for myself. Maybe for next update? We'll see.

Watch the Sky!

I just finished painting all of my British and German Aeronef minis! I also learned just how big the new driveway is by way of shoveling tons of snow. Youch.

Here are the Brits:

Now the Germans. Notice how they need way more Zeppelins. I'll need to do something about that.

Next up, the French!

Tharks & Venusians, Halflings too

Got some pics here of some things I've been working on lately.

Two Tharks I made using Kroot parts.

Some rifle armed Venusian Askaris.

Halflings for my Empire army. Still need to have the bases done.

Today is the snowpocalypse. I should be getting a lot of stuff done as a result!

Brazilian Squadron

Yes, today is the first installment of Video Thursday. I like to listen to music while I'm doing the stuff that I do. So I'll post music videos of artists I enjoy.

First up is the Russian singer who goes by the name, Glukoza. Funny stuff.

New miniatures alert! Here's my first completed Aeronef fleet. Straight out of Sao Paulo is a Brazilian squadron ready to take on the Brotherhood of Air Pirates out of New Orleans.

For Starters

So I've got me a blog. I think it should be fitting that I show off the very first miniature I ever painted. Somebody or Another the Rotund from Ral Partha:

Pretty sweet, huh? Looks kind of beat up. I must have painted him somewhere around 1990. In the 8th grade. I used acrylic paints and sable brushes even. I was already ahead of the curve by not using Testors enamels.

I think I'll repaint him now that I took a picture...

As for the present, I'm currently working on completing my British, French and German fleets for the Aeronef game. There will be pictures! Also in the works (you know, aside from everything else) is a Knoe Shoshu from the Space 1889 RPG that I'm sculpting. This gribbly creature is due to be completed by the end of the month. I shudder at the thought.

Another ongoing project is my Empire army for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. It was started sometime around 1993 and is still not finished. It's a mess is what it is. Not a badly painted mess but it just plain isn't done yet. I've been struggling with deciding on a unified base scheme for all the painted units. Something that will really make the army look done. More on this in the future.

Project number 2654 is my newly conceived world of Angstrad for use with the Dungeons and the Dragons. Most likely for AD&D second edition or D&D Rules Cyclopedia. Maybe a mash of both. It will be all gribbly and cool. You will read about it here first.
