New Painting Studio!

This is the main part of my desk.  It’s the home for the PC, the cutting mat and a large bin organizer that has yet to be populated with bits and goodies.  The art on the wall is some ...

Loot Crate “Villains” Unboxing

If anyone’s familiar with Birchbox or BarkBox or any of the many monthly “surprise” box subscription services, Loot Crate is like the same, but for geeks.  My wife did Birchbox for a long while, and I always enjoyed seeing her go through her box to see what goodies she’d gotten.  I’ve been wanting something ...

During the last Studio Update, I asked a few questions and mentioned that anyone who answered them would be entered to win some goodies.

[40k] Tau Battlesuit WIP

I’ve had my eye on painting some Tau models for a while.  While I’m not a huge fan of GW’s various price hikes and lack of game balance, the amazing background and gorgeous models are undeniable.  The Tau have held my attention since they first came out years ...

[Aquablight] Scythean Update 6/20

Today, I have some crappy cell phone pictures of what I’ve been able to do over my lunch hours here and there this week. Mostly, it’s been applying the same treatment to all of the Scythean’s upper armor.

Product Review: Secret Weapon Water Effects + Crushed Glass

Since I enjoy playing Khador and Legion who both hail from the snowy northern regions of Caen, I need snow.  I also want snow that’ll be on par with my paint jobs.  I’ve tried the GW snow and I used white glue + baking soda for the Pink Khador.  The GW stuff is horrid, and the ...
