Studio Update: Trolls, Bards and Rogues, oh my!

I’ll be completely honest, I was pretty well spent after TempleCon.

Painting every spare minute for almost a month and a half will do that, though.  Additionally, it feels like there’s been some family or friend or work related thing every weekend in 2015, so my usual spots of big hobby time (weekends) have been cut ...

A primer on airbrushes

I’ve been asked a lot recently (in the past 3 months) about my thoughts on airbrushes, and what someone getting started should look for.  Rather than re-type my thoughts each time I get asked, I figured I’d make a blog post of it!

Before I get started, check out the Plarzoid.com Store.  It has an Airbrush ...

TempleCon 2015 Recap!

Wednesday

Man, what a trip.  This was the first time I’d taken the train, and it was a blast.  I traveled with the crew from Advanced Maneuvers, and got to learn all about non-profits from some lovely business folks on the way from Philly to NYC.  I glued grass to bases during the train ...

Studio Update, Jan 26th 2015

The last time I sat down to paint (early last week), I wanted to stay to my speedpainting rules. The problem is, when I apply that method to this many models, it’s really hard to see the progress, and feel a sense of accomplishment after a painting session.

So, during game night ...

Plarzoid.com Templecon Swag

Last year, I had widgets and business cards.  This year, I still have loads of business cards, but I wanted to do something different from widgets (which loads and loads of people do).

Privateer press is on a big pin kick lately, which is cool, but those are really only feasible in quantities of 300+, ...

Studio Update: What have I gotten myself into?

This is what’s on the painting table right now.

I’m trying to get everything to the same level (base coated teal, sanguine and skin, at the least) so I can assembly line with shades and highlights. It’s going well so far, but I keep getting distracted and adding models to the list. Like the Raek, ...

Studio Update, Jan 15, 2015

Oh boy, Templecon’s getting closer.

Before I get to that, I want to show you the finished Necromunda Clown Guardsmen gang Commission.  This was a sculpting & painting job.  While I’m confident in my painting abilities, my sculpting is something I’m working on, so this job was a fun and simple way to try out some ...
