My entry into the Facebook group, 'Eavier Metal's 1st painting competition. Sadly, for me, I did not place, but it was fun regardless.
Inspired by Daniel Horne's, "The Real Reason the Romans Left Britain" from a Dragon Magazine cover in 1987.
Features Kostchtchie from the Fractured Dimensions KS and some heavily converted Warlord Romans.
More images can be seen on my Flickr page alone with my post on CMON, thanks for looking ;)

Social Media and "old lead"

So, it's been quite a while
and I've been absent. I'm guiltily of hanging out on Facebook, a place, I once dreaded and refused to join. I discovered there are a number of great miniature groups and personalities who frequent FB, and have been fortunate enough to even chat with a few. Notably, sculptor John Dennett, formally of Grenadier Models. I was pleased to find he is still sculpting (although in larger scale) and plans on revisiting fantasy, including a series of 54mm Orcs. My favorite group currently is "Old School miniatures" Us regular folks along with many of the current industry pros all share and talk about what we love most...old lead ;)
And some WIP of miniatures sculpted by John Dennett and Andrew Chernak

WIP: Otherworld Red Dragon

Since I have the week off after a busy Holiday and year, I have been wrapping long overdue projects up. One of those is this huge Red Dragon from Otherworld Miniatures. Mine is one of the resin masters so assembly came easy, just finding the time to paint with my OCD hang ups has be tough. ;)

Here's my versions so far;)

Detail of the demon and red dragon, these miniatures with a few exceptions have a very old school vibe:

Something new...Finally!

If anyone is out there... You may have noticed I'm not very good at this whole blogging thing;) but I do like to share. With little or no free time I sometimes wonder why I bother. I'd say it's because someday I would like to be better at this and this is just an experiment. But enough talk and if you are even here it's probably just for the pics;)

Vermithrax! More Bang For your Buck!

Everyone knows by now, that love them or leave them GW is ripping us off. They are able to do what they want when it comes to prices, and until people speak with their wallets the trend won't end. I for one have cut my GW purchases about 90% and 10% is just because they manage to make a figure or kit hard to resist every once in a while;) I have switched to small Manufactures such as Otherworld, Red Box and I'm starting to grow fond of Mithril Miniatures. My last post was on my experience with Reaper bones in which I concluded, while more bang for your buck they are best for beginners or casual gamers who are learning to paint and not for someone like me who's had the best ;) (metal and "good"resin).
     Now below are examples of a deal I found on Amazon marketplace over Christmas for only $48.00! It Pegasus models: Dragonslayer Vinyl model kit based on the 1981 film. Just look at the size and detail of the kit compared to the GW chaos Champion. Who I picked up sometime ago in fine-cast for $25! The kit is a heavy professional vinyl and if you have ever done a vinyl kit you know it is also a dream to work with, it holds detail awesome, paints and glues great. So,why hasn't anyone tried vinyl for larger miniature kits? ...unless the molding process is more involved???
