I like boardgames, mainly the type known as ‘Ameritrash’. These have lots of miniatures and dice and counters and cards and maps and tend to be about fantasy or sci-fi or zombies.
I don’t really like the more abstract games, where you are running a farm or selling goods in a medieval port. Seems more like work than fun.
This blog is a bunch of notes and logs, recording my gaming sessions, thoughts, ideas and plans. Putting it all in a central handy place so I can refer back to it in the future.
It will be time travel. Future-Tim can come back and visit Now-Tim and see what he was up to.
Beware, this is a pretty nerdy site.
nice work! Looks amazing 🙂
Just curious – do you do any commission painting? Would love to get your help painting my Gears of War set 😉
– cheers ,
Sorry I don’t do commissions, I only paint as a hobby and I don’t really think my painting is that great 🙂
If it helps, this is pretty much what I do:
1 – Paint figure with white as a base.
2 – Paint over the white with light colours, no shading or fancy stuff. So this would be face, hair, hands, shirt, cloak, weapon, belt, trousers, boots. Each one a block of a pale colour.
3 – Paint over the colours with ink wash, either brown or black. This does the shading. I use brown ink for face and hands, and for greens, yellows, reds. I use black ink for browns, blues, greys, metallics. The ink darkens the colour paint, so that’s why I paint with pale colours first.
4 – Dark metal armour and guns can look good if you dry-brush with silver paint at the end to add shiny highlights.
Hope this all helps.
