Two weeks ago I did something in my miniature hobby I've never done before. I painted in a public setting, more specifically in my friendly local game store. I decided to join in the festivities of a paint night by painting the Boneclaw from Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures paint kit.
Often in the miniature painting hobby we focus on ever increasing our piles of proud projects but never taking the time to properly organize and store it. This is my lesson to make sure I correct this mistake for the future.
Last January 2021 I set out to test to see if I could see personal growth in my hobby. I painted a benchmark miniature figure so that I may judge my improvement over the course of one calendar year. This benchmark was at that time the very best I could do in painting a miniature. I set no time limit and poured myself into it. The primary goal was to test if I could see a before and after of how far I developed as a miniature painter.
The conclusion of a massive project is never easy nor is articulating the impact and joy it has on ones hobby. Here I share the highs and lows of a two month journey to create an epic gameday of Frostgrave with entirely new terrain and warbands.
Over halfway through my Frostgrave project I reflect on project status and the incredible experience this has become.
I've only just started adding contrast paints to my arsenal as a miniature painter. While I still have so much to grow painting this Hill Giant from Lost Adventures Volume 1 has helped me gain valuable insight.
Painting Skin tones to truly portray a complexion is hard. Follow my journey as I embark on a mission to better understand the layers that make up our skin and how to paint them onto miniature figures.
In order to begin a campaign into the Frozen City of Frostgrave one must recruit a warband. Follow my project as showcase the models printed for the two opposing teams in my most ambitious project ever attempted for a tabletop game.
Having the chance to test print models for the community is such a treat. Here I showcase some of the models coming with the Lost Adventures Volume 3 Kickstarter Uncharted Lands. Be sure to check it out.
While I don't think it is possible to do anything halfway. But it turns out I can be halfway on a project. Check out my current status of the Lost Adventures Volume 1, 100% printing project.
