  1. The idea is that I will play a game of Steve Jackson's OGRE against whoever I can find (typically some poor soul who is taking pity on me). I will play the OGRE and the opponent will come up with a name of their fictional country that will try to stop me from crushing their base. Then I write an epic batrep about what happened. I couldn't get anyone to buy into my vision of making this a forum topic(I know, its a generally crappy idea) so I am relegated to pouring my guts out here. You have been warned. Don't say I didn't warn you. OGRE vs The Occult Brethren of IX. The Occult Brethren o

  2. Thanks Ordo Fanaticus! Hey Everyone, I have received such amazing support from the Ordo Fanticus community regarding our Tabletop Club that we started at The Dalles Public Library. This club is designed to offer access to tabletop gaming to youth in the community and to use a mentoring process to help teach our area youth about the hobby of tabletop gaming and miniature painting. Prior to me telling Ordo about the project, we had had two interest meetings where we talked about how to paint and worked a little bit on terrain. We had our first game day for our Shadow Wars camp

    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 shows his star status with the gold shield protecting the Gnome driver: Barik Farblast has

    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 that Ziggens gave me; those will be covered in a future blog post. This entry is labeled 'Time

    Ace of base (coats)

    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. I am knee-deep, or if I was a Gnome, barely ankle deep, in base coating the little buggers. 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), but I'm sticking with using it. Picking out the details on the Gnomes themselves isn't

    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, my idea is to spray the base olive color on all the models and then follow my normal painting proc
