This is the end...

ALWAYS. BE. PAINTING. After a little less than two months, I have completed @Ziggens' Impact Miniatures Gnome team. And while the pics are sub-par, I have included the final pieces for all to see. After the last entry, there were still Str Players to show, and I performed a small touch up on a few players with goggles.  First, the Stars; below, we have the Gnome Contraption that serves as Grim Ironjaw. Identified by his orange beard and the extend-o-glove attack arm, Ironjaw

Time Bandits

ALWAYS. BE. PAINTING. Turning the corner on any painting project is a great feeling. If you're anything like me, you never really feel accomplished until you start to see the end of the project in the distance. Well, I had that moment this week with @Ziggens' Gnomes. After finishing a few sample models, a Blitzer and Longbeard, I focused my attention on completing the contraptions first. This included the remaining Blitzer and two Troll Slayers. I'm not including the Star Players

Always. Be. Painting. A lot has been going on at and around the Weaver house and Ordo over the last few weeks, but that doesn't mean there hasn't bee progress on the Gnomes.

As you may recall from the last blog post, I am using a satin finish spray paint to base the models prior to picking out the armor, leather, beards, skin and caps. Here is a reminder of the spray's sating finish (BOOOOO

PRIME TIME

ALWAYS. BE. PAINTING. With the gnomes fully assembled, it was time to get some color on them....and for me, white is a color . I opted to white prime, using an old can of P3 I've had around for awhile. I normally like to use watered-down Gesso, but that method would be too laborious for this project. Many painters like black primer as it is great for blackening and speeding up the process, but I've always preferred the brightness white primer provides. Once the priming is complete

And so it begins...

ALWAYS. BE. PAINTING. This has been my motto for awhile now, having a desire to put brush on model as often as possible. And while I have plenty of Blood Bowl projects to occupy my time, I have found myself painting teams for friends of mine recently. I painted up @savion47's humans for the OBBL Human League, and I finished and unified a partially painted Necromantic team for @Patriarch of Sigmar's trip to Orclahoma Bowl. Based on my work on the Necro team, @Ziggens asked me if I
