Showcase: Dark Eldar Kabalite Warrior (Test Model)

But for a coat of matte varnish I finished my Kabalite Warrior test model over the weekend, and I wanted to put up a few pictures – including some closeups – and write a bit about what I like and don’t like about how it turned out.

Review: Back2Base-ix “The Rack” Hobby Desk Organizer

A while back I reviewed the Tabletop Gaming Bunker Acrylic Paint Shelf as an access and storage solution for Vallejo- and Reaper-style dropper bottles. While my review was mostly positive, I noted that the flat-horizontal orientation of the shelves created problems in terms of retention (droppers would fall out of the shelf given any good […]

Looking Back, Looking Ahead: 2014 Recap, 2015 Resolutions

One of my absolute favorite hobby blogs is Tale of Painters, which is a group blog run by six really talented guys – some of their work has been featured in the “Armies on Parade” section that used to run in White Dwarf magazine – and a cast of equally-talented guests. Currently the principals are […]

Warhammer 40k Seventh Edition: First Impressions

I still consider myself relatively new to Warhammer 40,000: I came to the game near the end of Fifth Edition’s lifespan, and though I owned that ruleset Sixth Edition is really what I learned with and know. As such I lack the perspective of a long-tenured player as how the game has developed over time. […]

Angel Canada Ultrasonic Cleaner (300W, 1.58 gal)

My first installment of Friday Five Things described my Optima 420 ultrasonic cleaner as a tool, however imperfect, that I’d rather not live without – whether for removing mold release from plastic or resin parts, or scrubbing paint residue off a disassembled airbrush. But its shortcomings nevertheless prompted me to replace it late last year […]

Paint Stripping Smackdown: Three Men Enter, One Man Leaves

One inevitably makes mistakes, small and large, when painting miniatures. The small ones can usually be dealt with by painting over the error, but the larger ones often defy such straightforward solutions. And then there’s the case where you buy already-painted armies to cannibalize them, because it’s cheaper than paying for new models off the shelf. […]

Using Cork Stoppers As Model Painting Handles

Using Cork Stoppers As Model Painting Handles

When I first discovered Les Bursley’s (unspeakably awesome) AwesomePaintJob videos, it struck me that he’d always attach the base of whatever model he was working on to an empty GW paint pot using some poster tac. These expedient model painting handles enabled him to manipulate his work without actually touching it and, potentially, ruining painstaking […]

Friday Five Things: Y U No Blog In So Long?

So, yeah. This thing still on?

More than a year’s gone by since I last updated the blog, and that bears some explanation. No better way to do it, and try to get back into the groove, than with an installment of Friday Five Things.
