Photography 101

At some point in your painting life you will want to take a photo of your mini.  This is a given.  So you do the same thing that works for everything else you want to take an image of and pull out your mobile phone, whack it in front of your mini and snap off

A Beginner’s Guide to Painting – Marble

Painting Marble I debated a while whether I should be posting this tutorial as a “Thursdays Child” post – because everything I’m trying here is my first attempt at the whole concept of painting marble.  However I’m really happy with the final result, and feel it probably meets all I require of a real tutorial.

A Beginner’s Guide to … Beginning – Priming

A Beginner’s Guide to … Beginning – Priming The internet can be a pretty heated, angry, controversial place.  Which is why I love the PP Minis and painting, and terrain forums.  Friendly people, mostly friendly comments, little in the way of controversy.  It’s my happy place in the murky depths of the internet.
