We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

Current Painting Task



So, first and foremost, the background about me, my painting skills, and the task ahead...

I started tabletop gaming over a decade ago with the 4th Edition release of Tyranids for Warhammer 40k. My painting skills were, lack of any better term, total shit. I globbed paint on everything, couldn't do anything with details, and generally made a mess of flocking and basing no matter what. That was when I was introduced to drybrushing, and I haven't looked back since.

All this time later, I still cannot do detail work for the life of me, nor do I care to. What I have done in the meanwhile, however, is developed my drybrush and wash skills. I also learned how to work with paint mixing and layering. As a result, I can paint anything with dynamic, bold color combinations. I also taught myself how to scratch build and mod minis, which resulted in two Super Heavy vehicles for 40k, both of which have yet to meet their equal around these parts (in terms of originality and paint work, they're just fire magnets on the table).

Which brings me to the current mission I am undertaking. Rather than the failed attempt to paint everything as I go, I am breaking it down into seasons...
