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 »

It has been far too long since I posted anything here. This is due in no small part to a hurricane whipping through my city and causing all kinds of disruptions to everything. Shortly after said hurricane, Iron Painter 2017 began and I focused most of my hobby time on that as well as hosting and editing the resurrected A Wyrd Place Podcast. This was my third year participating in the Iron Painter competition and although I didn’t have time to do my series of posts documenting my work in progress along the way, I did manage to once again complete an entry every round. Enjoy this gallery of all of my Iron Painter 2017 entries:

I feel like I completed some of my best painting works I have ever completed this year. I was once again seeded into the Bronze tier for this competition but I managed to eliminate my opponents every round, thereby completing my goal of doing better this year than I did last year and at become at least a Bronze tier final winner! My third round entry was also featured in the December issue of Wyrd Chronicles in an article on Iron Painter 2017. Overall I’m remarkably happy with how Iron Painter 2017 went for me; I grew as a painter and have added several new weapons to my painting toolbox.

Guslado Goes to GenCon 50: Day 1

The lead up to GenCon this year was rather busy for me, so I didn’t have a whole lot of time to prep up these posts in advance, but I did want to make sure I shared this all with you as I have done for the past few years.

After far too long without posting an update here, I am back in action!!! I haven’t been able to do much hobbying until recently due to some time consuming home renovations which put my hobby room out of commission and then a long vacation up to Alaska, but now I’m back and firing on all cylinders! This is a quick look at what I’ve been working on since I got my hobby room back.

I have several models here which are very nearly finished, so keep your eyes peeled for some photos of finished miniatures in the next few days. Also, I’m making my annual pilgrimage up the GenCon next week and once again I’ll be posting my Guslado Goes to GenCon series!

What have you been working on?

Wednesday is upon us, so it’s time to share what’s been on your table this week–once again it’s Work in Progress Wednesday!

I started hitting some details on Bansuva to get him a little bit closer to the table; he still needs a good deal of work, but I like the direction he’s headed in. I’m trying out a new formula for painting fire and I’m digging how it looks after the first couple of steps, I can’t wait to see how this will look with a little more work on it.

I was also looking for a way to make small discs which fit exactly inside the lip of a round lipped base so that I can make a few less elaborate marble bases to go along with Sandeep and friends. I found that one of the dropper bottles I use is the perfect size to basically make a cookie cutter that makes discs that will fit inside a 30mm round lipped base. Greenstuff turned out to be too sticky to get a good clean cut, so I picked up some Super Sculpey to try out and I was quite happy with the end result. While I was at the art store I also saw some cool press molds designed for polymer clays, so I get one with a bunch of faces on it that I think will look really cool for basing.

What have you been working on?

Hey all! Just a quick Work in Progress Wednesday post for this week as I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t had time to get in as much hobbying as I would have liked to. I made some great progress on the marble bases for Sandeep and Bansuva. I also built some Steam Arachnids I’ve had sitting in my hobby closet for a while since I’ve been playing a fair amount of Ramos lately and haven’t had enough. Additionally, I built Nathaniel Garro and Tylos Rubio from 30k that I’ll be painting as a commission.

Over the weekend I ran a Malifaux tournament for the first time; I had twelve people show up to play. Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to the next even at Dragon’s Lair. All in all a busy, but successful week.

What have you been working on?

In 2017 a crack Malifaux unit was sent to my painting table by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security figure case to the Malifaux underground. Today, still wanted by the Guild, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire: The Freikorps.
