Reaver Lords coming soon

Reaver Lords is a miniatures company that is just getting started. At the time of this writing, I believe they only have a facebook page for an online presence. However, they have previewed their first miniature: the Shadow Prince. And I’ve got to say, if they keep this quality up, they really have a winner:

Wyrd Puppets

Wyrd Puppets
Well, normally I would post up some of these minis in groups, rather than having a single shot for each one. But Janci couldn’t resist getting a single shot for each and every puppet that I painted. So this is a more pic heavy post than I normally put up here. So, here is a ...

Plastic Warbeast kits

Privateer Press has been slowly rolling out their plastic kits since they first started them with the Exemplar Cinerators, followed shortly by plastic versions of the basic warjacks for each Warmachine faction (and plastic starter box sets). Many of us were wondering if the plastic trend was going to reach Hordes very soon, but it ...

Squad Lorenzo

Squad Lorenzo
Well, I finally finished all of Squad Lorenzo from my own Space Hulk set.  I get distracted away from these projects of mine, sometimes it really takes me longer than it should. Frequent readers will remember Sergeant Lorenzo Brother Zael with his heavy flamer and lots of flammable parchment. Brother Deino- one of the more ...

Of Mouslings and men

Ok, for anyone who might have missed them, for the past year and a half, Reaper Miniatures has been producing sets of some of the cutest little miniatures released this side of Super Dungeon Explore. These miniatures are mostly sculpted by Gene Van Horne (although it turns out the initial run had some work by Bobby ...

Colette Du Bois Crew

Colette Du Bois Crew
Here is a Malifaux crew that I painted recently.  I used some rather bright colors on this crew, so it was important to line all of the areas to keep the minis looking crisp. For the stockings on Collete Du Bois and Cassandra, I decided that harlequin diamonds would be pretty appropriate.  When I went ...

Cake Topper craziness

Cake Topper craziness
Ok, those of you who follow this blog quite a bit will know that I make cake toppers for people- and most of the ones I make are zombies or zombie fighters. I mean, nothing says we’re in it for the long haul like “I’ll fight off a horde of zombies with you.” I usually ...

Lining your minis to make them ‘pop’

Lining your minis to make them 'pop'
When I first started painting (many moons ago) I learned of a technique called black lining. Basically, when you have two light colors right next to one another, the boundary between them tends to get lost, and the mini looses crispness. So, back then, the plan was to put a thin black line between the ...

Super Dungeon Pre-orders are up

Super Dungeon Pre-orders are up
Although a lot of people had the opportunity to pre-order their copies of Super Dungeon Explore at Gencon and Pax, there are many more people who either don’t go to the cons, or didn’t pre-order there. Finally, Sodapop Miniatures have opened up for general pre-orders. And if you did not attend the cons, this will ...
