Once again it’s that time of the year when we must paint until our fingers bleed–it’s time for Iron Painter 2018! This will be my fourth year competing in this grueling competition and my sites are set high–last year I managed to be a Bronze Tier winners, this year I hope to be seeded into a higher tier and survive until the end! However things shake out, this competition is always a great way for me to challenge my painting skills and I look forward to seeing what crazy themes they throw at us this year.

Above is my first round entry; voting is still going on for a few days, so I’m eagerly anticipating the results so that I know where I will be seeded and what the theme for the next round is.

It has been far too long since I have posted anything here; I blame the craziness that has been life lately. Anyway, I will hopefully once again be getting back to a regular posting schedule and what better time of year to do it that right at Gen Con season! I’ll be making my annual pilgrimage to Gen Con in a few short days, so follow along here to join in the fun! I’ve also been painting a few things to get ready for Gen Con.

I do a Podcast now!

Posted: February 5, 2018 in Malifaux

I’ve mentioned it briefly before, but it never hurts to mention it again. For the past couple of months I’ve been hosting and producing a Malifaux podcast; in this podcast we talk tactics, hobby, and news for the fantastic tabletop game Malifaux. I’m really happy with how the podcast has been so far and the direction it’s been heading.
You should check it out!

Even though I’m a bit ahead of the curve on my 2018 hobby goal of painting 1 model per week, I am still pushing myself to keep up the pace. Over the last week, I finally got around to finishing off Barbaros!

For those of you who don’t know, a few months ago I began hosting a bi-weekly Malifaux podcast with the other Admins from the A Wyrd Place Facebook group. In our first episode of the New Year, we all made some hobby resolutions for 2018 to try to get us all painting more; in this episode I committed to the Model Per Week Challenge in which I would complete 1 model per week for the entirety of 2018 so that at the end I would have painted at least 52 models. Part of the conditions of this challenge is that these models are to be for my own use on the table and that they can’t include miniatures painted for competitions or commissions. Along with the doing the Model Per Week Challenge I’m aiming to have completed at least 365 soulstones worth of models by years’ end. As I haven’t been posting here as often as I used to, I figure this is also a good time to get back to posting on a regular basis. Read the rest of this entry »
