  1. Raising the Bar, One Notch at a Time

    Yesterday, I finished the Dark Sword amazon. The result is okay, not great; I suppose that means I may have raised my expectations a bit, however unintentionally. Or maybe the sculpt demanded more precision with larger 'cloth' and skin areas needing smooth blending, smaller details, greenstuff for the hair, etc. Either way, I spent a little too much time on it and started to get slightly tired of working on it, but at least it's finished and off my table.

    I also picked Carinth ...
  2. Time Marches On

    A couple of weeks ago, I noted that I had completed a couple of models, the first in months. Painting for fun, sans deadline, was a good experience. Building on that, a few days later saw the return of a pair of Reaper minis, languishing about 10% finished for probably 2 years. They are identical, two copies of the same piece. Why? One for practice, the other for perfekt.

  3. One Year to the Day

    One year to the day since my last post, and all I can say is, "Where did the time go?!?" The answer is day job, family, home, family medical, holidays, etc. The job has been vampiiric for a long time...sleep-depriving, stressful and life-draining.

    In hobby terms, I got a few minis painted in 2013. A little Malifaux, one rushed entry for Gen Con, a bench queen or two. On the other hand, I got in a bit more tabletop gaming and, for the first time in several years, ran a ...

    Planning a Project and Who Backs Projects?

    Welcome to my third blog entry. If a killer is only named as a serial killer after three murders, does this make me a serial blogger? Thatís probably another subject for another time.

    In the last part I looked at some of the initial planning you should do when looking to launch a crowdfunding project, such as working out what you actually want to launch, how much it might cost, how long to run a project for and estimated delivery ...
  5. Brambletenís Crowdfunding Chronicles Part IIa - Planning a Project

    Planning a Project and Who Backs Projects?

    This, the second part in my ever so exciting blog series about what happens when miniatures companies try and get people to throw their money at computer screens shall hopefully look at two ideas Ė planning a project and backer mind-sets. This in turn will be split in to two sections, as the first bit has gotten a bit longer than I thought it would and so will be lopped in two, with the second part appearing tomorrow sometime.
