6mm – First Figures

Got the first couple of strips of 6mm skellies painted for the boy’s medieval force.  He asked for a main color of purple, but wasn’t sure what secondary color would work best.  This is a bit of a test strip to see if a second primary color is even...

Big Box Terrain, Part Three

Remember that plain old terry cloth battle mat I showed you last week? For those who don’t. It looks great! Using a two-inch brush, I just dry brushed the whole darn thing in one short evening.  Before starting, I polished up the three terrain bases by adding static grass,...

Big Box Terrain, Part Two

Last time we looked at the forest base.  This time let’s look at the canopies for the still as yet unrevealed new project era. What you’re looking at is a cheap and easy alternative to the method used by these clever chaps here.  Their forests look great, but they...

Tyranny of Dragons Party – Yours Truly

The most colorful member of the party, in more ways than one, must be my character, a dwarven tank named Henry St. John.  He actually dual wields two light hammers, but the figure came with a hammer and axe.  The axe went to yesterday’s dragon-born paladin, and the dragon-born’s...

Fighting Fire With Fire

Sometimes it takes a dragon to beat a dragon.  The toughest character in our party running the Tyranny of Dragons gauntlet is the dragonborn warrior, Karran.  This paladin is a white-dragon blooded tank of a hero.  Unlike the three previous characters in the party, the guy playing this character...

Sic Semper Tyrannis Draconis

Aramis, cleric of Helm, tank-slash-healbot extraordinaire, and all around good guy.  He has been instrumental in cracking the tyranny of dragons campaign.   Fifth edition clerics seem like a hard class to play.  They have so many options at every level of the game, there’s a lot to track...

Sci-Fi Skirmish Documented Aliens

Look at all this personality.  These guys are great.  Brutal beasts, galumphing stocky blobs, and thin mysterious snakemen.  We truly live in a golden age of 15mm figures.  So many choices, I could could paint nothing but random aliens for a year and never run out. Khurasan on the...

Tomorrow’s War: Odds and Ends

Got a couple of points to add to yesterday’s Tomorrow’s War post.  They didn’t make the final cut because the AAR was getting a bit long.  Neither is enough to justify a full blog post, but they are each perhaps worth a brief mention. The Shroom House You might...

Obligatory Still Kicking Post

If you must, feel free to insert a cliched “not dead yet” joke here. (That’s what most bloggers do when they return after an extended absence.)   Instead of that, I’m just going to stick with a meta-not-dead-yet joke instead. At any rate…here are a couple of shots of the...
