  1. 6MMRPC - background check

    Slightly before joining the 6-Month Mountain Reduction and Painting Challenge – and deciding that from now on the 6MMRPC acronym will suffice – I took a good look at my Good Intentions Queue and determined to knock out a big chunk of it by 12/31/2014. How big a chunk? 221 pieces, projects or minis. What, what?!? 221 items by 12/31…sorry, that's 31/12/14 for those who drive on the 'wrong' side of the road … may not be a truly huge number or a short time span for the heavy-hitter army ...

  2. 6-Month Mountain Reduction and Painting Challenge - 6MMRPC

    I have been almost obsessively prepping minis for the past couple of weeks, mainly Sedition Wars and some Malifaux. Maybe learning to airbrush primer and main basecoat, and being given a new airbrush, changed my approach. By September 1, I felt it was time to challenge myself, really push to paint as many models as possible by the end of 2014.

    I mentioned it to Bloodthorn and he suggested I look into the 6-Month Mountain Reduction and Painting Challenge, as Chris' Miniature Woes ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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.

    My original goal was to paint one for Reaper Con or Gen Con, but now it's just for me. Oh, yeah, I ...

  5. 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 ...
