Recent Painting

More pictures. I just really need to set the light tent up permanently and use it to take pictures, I'm having a hard time taking decent pictures. It is not anything that has ever been easy for me!

Hero Machine

Hero Machine is pretty cool. It's one of those character image generators, where you can choose expressions, hair styles, clothes, etc... and make an illustration of your character. Hero Machine is pretty cool in that you can select an item at random, including randomizing the entire character, giving some pretty interesting and unusual designs.

Trading Up for Legends of the Old West

Okay, I traded off the Old Glory 49er in exchange for a Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf Hammerer Command blister pack, trying to work my way up to the Legends of the Old West rulebook. I have the Dwarves painted now, and up for trade.

Native American Flesh Color

You may have noticed my 40mm painted counter clicked up two recently. No pictures yet, but I started painted some of my Sash and Saber FIW Indians. I found a mixture that I think gives a good native American skin color. I mixed it using craft paints. It is 4 parts brown, 3 parts orange, 2 parts light grey, and 1 part white. You may want to adjust this a little bit based on the paints you are using, but it gives a good starting point.


Yes, the time when the craft stores carry Halloween and Christmas village things to use for terrain!Hobbytown USA, where I get my terrain supplies, closes at 9:00 PM. At 9:05, the sprayer on my Woodland Scenics scenic cement breaks on my second hill, shutting me down for the night!
