Crooked Lanes and Deep Shafts

I grew up in a boom town. It was on its…I think third boom, when I was there. It’s into its fourth now, with a pretty significant bust in between. When I was living there and experiencing all the fun that comes with being an adolescent, the town existed to mine trona. If you read […]

More Painted Malifaux!

I’ve got Jakob Lynch painted, and his crew’s rapidly reaching painted completion. I admit I’m apprehensive about the female Illuminated, because there’s a dress involved and I just don’t know if I’ll do it justice. So, we’ve got the Illuminated, which I just glued to their bases.

These three lionmen barely feel like they should count as a conversion…you just take some Crypt Horrors and slap […]

On the Concept of “Table Ready”

To some extent this is informed by general tournament requirements, which are more or less 3 distinct colors and “basing material.” The basing material bit tends to […]

Projects Galore

I don’t love painting as much as I’d like to. I enjoy the act itself, mind. I’m extremely proud of that fella, for instance. I was simply setting out to paint a white wolf, because Darif’s Winter Beast is a white, wolf-like creature. Rather than using a wolf proper I used a LotR warg. I’m […]
