Well, I sure took my sweet time painting this one.  I'd finished the base a week or so after the previous one, but one thing or another kept getting in the way of painting the miniature itself.

But I'm getting ahead of myself.  Over the winter holidays, I got a bunch of...

In the GRIMDARK future of the forty-first millennium, my favorite faction is Tyranid, which is sort of like a crossbreeding of the xenomorph from Alien with a termite colony.  I don't own any tyranid models, so getting this little bug as one of my bonus models in my Dec...

So, a little bit of a different presentation for the post this time, since there are only so many ways that I can talk about painting a skeleton miniature in more or less the same way, just using some different colors.  Rather than going through all of the steps, I'll j...

I was fortunate enough to get a bonus stocking of gifts with my order from Reaper in December, which came with a few skeletons (among other free miniatures, but the skeletons in particular are simple enough that I don't have any discomfort about using them as practice p...

After making a couple of gift miniatures for some friends, I got the Masterwork Miniature Painting with Jen Haley and Anne Foerster digital download from CMON.  I found that to be very useful to watch, for several reasons.  Obviously, with how little experience I have w...

Do you want to know why I'd only had one post about miniature painting in November and why I'd been complaining about frustrations with painting in other posts?  This, this right here is the reason.  I tried biting off far more than I was ready to chew, so it took me fu...

Well, I earned two of these models for spending so much on my last order from Reaper, and they were generous enough to throw in another two for free, so I figured that it'd make sense to use one or two of them after going through the kits (and after finishing with Seoni...

Well, this was a miniature that waited on me for quite a while.  I'd actually done a little bit with it while I was waiting for my Learn To Paint kits to arrive because I'd wanted to do something until they got delivered.  Of course, that meant that they ended up coming...

Honestly, between the two kits, this (#08907) was the one that I was really looking forward to.  My early experiences with painting miniatures had already given me some sense of the very basic skills that the first kit was focused on, but the starkly painted look that t...

I'm sure that everyone who's played Dungeons & Dragons, or even just browsed through the source books, has their favorites among the weird monsters.  Beholders get a lot of love, as do mindflayers, the tarrasque, and for some reason, otyughs.  Personally, I always had a...
