Well, as it appears all of my waffling on about the awesome WordPress miniatures community has rubbed off on my Painting Sage and he’s made himself a blog!!
http://thewurmwood.wordpress.com <—click here for good times.
As much as I wanted him to entitle it ‘The Ramblings of a Painting Sage’ it appears he instead went with The Wurmwood. Haha.
In my most recent escapades….I continued painting Lylyth from Warmachine. Got a lot of practice painting shading on cloaks.
Look at the beautiful sway of my cloak. It flaps! Like a candle in the wiiiiinddd…ehem
Still need to learn a lot about blending. *sigh*
I keep huffing and becoming frustrated that they don’t come out as nice as they look in the pictures on the website. I wish patience was less of a virtue and more of ‘buy it now’ on ebay.
Painting Sage and I also purchased army’s for the miniatures table top game Infinity!
(Mine are the ALEPH on the left)
I absolutely COULD NOT believe how little these were when I opened the box.
Hello my dear. I hear you’re going to be painting me? Take care with my stilletos, they’re small enough to clip the wings of a fairy dancing on the head of a pin.
Putting these together was not only an exercise in patience, but also a grand learning experience in the art of ‘pinning’. Painting Sage had to step in a few times to assist me as I was flailing all over the place losing pieces of robots that could only be found with a metal detector.
But, eventually, I had a set of robots and little Aleph people.
Well, I might leave it there for today!
Oh one other piece of news, was my painting friend found these awesome free printable terrain maps and cargo containers! I don’t have a ‘great’ photo of it yet – but how cool does this look??
Ooooooh, cannot wait to play on this with my ultra tiny part people.
Love you all! Sincerely,
