Grab your paint brushes and remember to thin out your paints. Man Battlestations is running their 2019 painting contest. I don't have any tiny ships to paint, and I've never been good at the applicati
This has to have been the longest 3-day week I've had in quite some time. But car repairs and doctor's visits will do that to you, I suppose. I'm so very much ready for the weekend, as 2019 is already

I just got in some new Guild Ball minis and I'm going to need to paint them up. Unfortunately, my painting skills are pretty much a joke. I really need to step up my game. Maybe Issue 49 of Figure Pai

Under the sea (under the sea) there's a whole race of elves (sorry, aelves) that have been hiding out from the ocean, sticking clean clear of Slaanesh and only doing some light raiding. Well, that tim
A couple weekends ago, I painted up the first minis I'd done in about 2 years.They... don't look great. I mean, they are ok enough, I suppose. But they're not going to be anything I really show off. T

While I wouldn't recommend that you paint your minis with the same mop that you use to swab the deck, that's about how my figures tend to look. Hopefully, yours look a lot better. If they look a whooo
A couple weeks ago, I went through my (rather neglected) paint collection, resuscitating those that I could, and tossing out those that were dried solid. I have been meaning to start painting again. J
Warlord Games lets you play using far-Eastern themes in their skirmish game, Test of Honour. But what if you want to put entire regiments of figures out onto the board, instead of just a few? That's w
Fridaaaaaaay! And man, I worked like mad yesterday, but there's still tons to do. And you should see what my grocery list looks like for tomorrow. We'll see if I can fit everything into my little Chev
