WiPWednesday 1-13

Due to traveling for the holidays and then getting back into the swing of normal life I haven’t had much time to get any hobbying done, but I want to get back into the habit of posting every week for Work in Progress Wednesday. I hope that getting back into this habit will provide the impetus to get my butt in gear with painting more often.

Over the weekend I hung several pieces of new fantasy art in my Nerd Cave; I have previously shared glimpses of the Nerd Cave here and here, so I thought I might as well show some of the latest work I have done with decorating my refuge of geekery. Yesterday I posted about the custom wall plaques I made this last weekend for my rapier and dagger, which are now hanging around the corner from the angle where I took this panorama. Most of the artwork on the walls was created by cool fantasy artists who I’ve found at Gen Con and Ren Faire, so if you like the art you see and have any questions about what it is or where I obtained it don’t hesitate to ask; I love doing the small things I can to expose more people the works of great fantasy artists.

Hopefully I can make some solid progress on the numerous painting projects I have going and have something for more interesting to share with you all next week. What projects have you been working on lately?

Sword Plaque 3

Here is my most recently completed project: custom wall plaques for my rapier and dagger from my Ren Faire garb! While this isn’t really gaming related, I figure this is the sort of random geekery which most anyone who would be here for my gaming posts would enjoy.

Merry Christmas!!!

Wyrd Miniatures and DriveThruRPG teamed up to have a great holiday giveaway–you had about 24 hours to post a photo of you, a Malifaux or Through the Breach book, and some holiday cheer and then share it with them before the Wyrd team left the office on the 23rd and they would send you a mysterious gift of digital copies of something from Wyrd’s catalog. I decided to have a little fun with the photo and do a recreation of the cover of the Malifaux 2E Rules Manual with a holiday twist and it turned out too good not to share.

The afternoon of the 23rd I was surprised with the e-mails from DriveThruRPG containing free downloads of the full Malifaux M2E Rulebook, Shifting Loyalties, the Through the Breach Fated Almanac, and a Through the Breach Penny Dreadful One-Shot Adventure! Promotions like this are one of the major reasons why Wyrd is such a great company, so a million thanks to them!

I also wanted to wish the various denizens of the Internet who happen to find my little corner a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Joyous Saturnalia, Happy Hanukkah, Superb Solstice, Kick-ass Kwanza, Fantastic Festivus, and Fabulous Festivities which I may have forgotten!!!
