  1. Keeping busy

    With work tiring me out, I was wondering when I'd find time to get much painting done - and to be honest I haven't, but I have done a lot of prep work.

    I've started painting two models for a tabletop painting tutorial for the next issue of Irregular. This will sit back to back with an advanced tutorial by another writer (*cough, WAMPER, cough*) with the same two models. The theme is Alien Skin, and after a very quick Twitter poll, I'm painting them orange. The not so fun part is taking ...
  2. Changes afoot

    It's a new year, and I thought it was time to take stock before moving ahead.
    I want to have goals for this year, but I'm not 100% clear on what they should be other than vagaries like "improve" - you know I like to be more focused than that ;)

    So to help me define my goals I set up a thread called Peer Assessment asking other WAMPers to feed back on my strengths and weaknesses as a painter. Yes, it's a likely scary allowing people to have free reign on commenting, ...

  3. Staying on the wagon

    It's been 11 months since I bought a mini for myself - and to be fair, the only ones I have bought were for Jay and my brother for Christmas last year, and our anniversary.

    In October it will be a full year without being tempted at Salute, Triples, FigureWorld, Euro* or GamesDay*, as well as local stores, or online sales.

    *Future events

  4. 100 pushup challenge

    Yup - this post is not about painting, or minis. It's about excercise.....wait!...come back!

    Are you still here? Well I'd lilke to tell you about a challenge I have recently picked up the gauntlet for. It's to do 100 pushups (pressups) consecutively.
    Sounds hard right?

    If you've met me, or seen a pic you'll know I am an 8 (and a bit) stone weakling with no muscles in my arms - I mean, I can barely lift a paintbrush.
    So, yeah, I can't do pressups and it's ...
  5. The Sniper

    Warning - you will see a realise I'm a big bag of crazy after reading this (if you didn't already know).

    Some of you may know this story, or at least some of it.
    Last year for Games Day I started work on a Forgeworld Sniper. I wanted to do my best work, and spent longer prepping it than I ever thought possible, I even used a little putty to smooth out the cloak and fill holes in the legs!
    I experienced some difficulties early on, like snapping off the scope on the rifle. ...
