Updated Gallery

For a while there, the Gallery here was a slideshow of pictures of models that I had painted. Unfortunately, it took forever to load, and the slideshow wouldn’t let you view any of the pictures longer or go back, etc.

I’ve changed up the Gallery page to have static images so you can click and view ...

Colossals!

Holy $#!7.

This dude is massive.  When you take a look at the comparison picture, he’s twice as tall as Ol’Rowdy, and nearly 3-4 times as tall as a small based model.

So he has big guns, little guns, he poops “lightning pods” and he has “electrified fists”.  No ...

How-to Tuesday: Play Infinity

This one’s a stretch, but I promise next week’s will be awesome.

From what I understand, Infinity, like Malifaux, is a small (squad level, 10 or less models), skirmish game.  It also has some fantastic looking models:
