What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.

Infinity Nightmare resolved and work in progress!

My friend Dave took it out of it's little sit bath of Pine-Sol after soaking for 24 hours, got out his trusty toothbrush and saved my poor little figure (and some cash too!). I am simply amazed at how well it came out. So fear not fellow painters, if you screw up, don't throw away your figures and buy new ones. If it's acrylic based then go out and buy yourself a bottle of Pine-Sol!

In the meantime here's a couple of shots of the one I didn't mess up with only one leg mostly finished, it's just to show the different stages that have to happen before I get to the finished leg looking effect. Even when that's done there will be tons of other detail work that needs to be done.



  1. Well, I for one am glad the little guy is finally out of the plastic container. He looked so sad. I see that Dave had the lid on tight too, so the poor fellow could not escape!

    1. Me too! And not even an antenna broke, which is even better!
