I wanted to do a shout out post for one of my regular client’s Warhammer Channel over on YouTube. I have been working with Andy at Simply Warhammer for going on two years now (where did that time go?) and he always asks for the most interesting miniatures. He has been doing battle reports, commission painting reviews and all manner of hobby related posts and videos. Here is the link:
I’ve been painting some more of Sons of Guilliman today and I thoroughly enjoyed them. These kits are a bit older Than most I have done and as such, the mould lines needed extra attention. I think they were first made in 2004 so a lot has changed since they were new
What I love about these is the colour scheme. I love how bright they are and they are a pleasure to paint once again.
They have been a welcome change from the Lunar Auxilia I’ve worked on over the past couple of weeks, I hope you like them as much as I do!
Last year was a complete write-off when it came to outdoor, and indoor, events. It was a huge shame as the Live Action Role Play that I had chosen to play was cancelled. I was looking forward to running about in the post apocalyptic world, shooting laser tag guns and doing pseudo-science dressed in a crazy costume. Covid said no however and we were forced to cancel all the events last year.
This year is looking better! An event has been planned for mid-September and I am very excited to get back into the swing again.
For those interested in playing, there is a Q&A session via zoom on the 28th March at 6pm. We are all very approachable, and enthusiastic, about this game and would love to share it with anyone who is interested. The zoom meeting details are as follows:
Meeting ID: 978 1194 2933
‘An opportunity to get to know a little more about Humanity Ascendant (HASc) for new / newer players, and Vets (yes there are a few of us!) to ask and answer questions as well.The GMs and Admins will have a couple of minutes talking about themselves and what HASc means to them. Lee will then talk a little about the game setting, the story and the player’s part in it.We will then open the floor to questions; HOWEVER feel free to stick your hand up at any time during the initial section’
It would be amazing to see some new faces there. Of course, if you have other questions, or cannot make it, feel free to get in touch with me and I will answer them for you.
I was approached by a friend recently, who had designed and purchased a STL file of her latest Dungeons and Dragons character. The character is based on a chef, named Remi, and is for the campaign ‘The Curse of Strahd.’ I could go on about the levels of fear involved when Ravenloft is mentioned, but that would run the purpose of this post completely off course.
So, I was more than happy to print out the miniature and paint it afterwards. She told me exactly how she wanted him to look, and we discussed some other ideas as well. I was super pleased with how he turned out:
This was a good opportunity to test out the print and paint part of the new business that we are setting up, and I am pleased to say I think it worked well. Remi’s owner was also happy with the outcome, which is what matters!
The 3D printing experiments are coming along really well. We’ve bought the license for the Lunar Auxilia and we have been using them to practice on the 3D printing. As some of you are aware, we are in the process of setting up our own company and will be selling them. This will be launched on the 1st April, and more details on that will be coming soon. For now though, I wanted to show off how awesome the prints are, and to say how much fun I am having painting them too:
Of course, if you have questions about what services we will be offering, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I am happy to answer them if I can, and if not find the answer out for you!
I was invited to sign up to a new directory for commission painters the other week, which was a welcome surprise. I do like being asked to do things, and saw this as a great opportunity to join and build a space on a new platform. Here is the link:
Those who sign up as people interested in commissioning one of the artists can follow their favourite artists and comment on the work there. There are four prizes for doing so, the top being a commission of 150 Euro by whomever you choose. The website is run by a fellow in Germany.
The artist with the most followers gets a bragging trophy.
Promoting this also gets more traffic to the website, which I think is a great idea. Go and give it a look over, it’s pretty simple to use and there are some fine painters on there too!
