About the Project

An assortment of projects, each less likely to be finished than the last. A little motivational blog guiding you though my ever growing lead pile and pretendence to paint.

The official kit is just not worth the extra money.

A glimpse into the workshop

Some of you might be aware I own a workshop. Yesterday the hobby desk has been build up to its current state, still waiting for its final tabletop and shelves.

I just want to remind you guys, despite owning a full workshop, you don’t need all of that to build something functional. Whether you use pine, spruce or oak, or only have a hand saw and a hand drill.

Those Lead Adventure Post-apocalyptic minis are just a joy to paint

The bad moon laughs

A small mordheim warband, there are a lot more where they came from. They are loosely fitted in their base for now, Basing has to wait.

3 more crew members to the wacky bunch. Painted quick and dirty, I’m not wasting too much time on them.

Late Night Wasteland - Photos of Apocalyptic quality

The first of the wasteland gang, I imagine him to be a brawly kid. More bark than Bite, certainly not a good shot.

A skitiarii Marshall I’ve been working on the side, most of the work involved drybrushing. Can’t say I’m impressed with contrast paint on large pieces of flowing fabric, I rather stay to washes on that front.

I’ve enjoyed picking out details on this one, the model only really needed a heavy drybrush for most of the details, highlights and a wash on the cables and golf did the rest.

A bit more basing

Some near future post-apocalyptic miniatures from Lead Adventure this time. I’m not going to lie, it feels a bit cynical working on these after the turmoil of the last two years.

I don’t want to stir the pot, but I hope we can leave those lonely years behind so we can focus on the loved ones in our lives and the ones in our heart again. Maybe even throw some dice.

Back in the mud Tommy!

I consider the bird grit a success, they need some grass once the painting is done, but I can’t complain this Sunday morning.

Basing some US paratroopers

Some 15mm US paratroopers for games like Bolt Action. Based using fine sand and bird grit, which in essence is mostly small rough rocks.

Bit of an experiment before I carry this over to more important projects. Hopefully it looks fine once primed and painted.

These marines have been a nightmare to photograph, neither my phone or camera particularly like this shade of orange. Regardless they are slowly getting there…well maybe.
