Showcase: Post Apocalyptic Mystery Gang

I was thinking of putting together a scenario of Scooby-Doo gang vs zombies.

So, I broke out the set of Hasslefree minis I had of the Post-Apoc Gang, and got to work.

I also has a spare Rhino around and threw that in.

Killjoys in 28mm - Step 4: Face the Facts

I hate painting faces.

I especially hate painting eyes.

I'm also not very good at it. I usually have to go back again and again and again to get things right. It's frustrating.

So frustrating that I can't even tell you how I do it.

I will point out a place that has some very good advice; advice that I try to follow.

These guys know what they are doing.  You should just read all of the posts on Reaper's website. Each time I read one, I become a slightly better painter.

Anyway, the Killjoys are coming along, finally. With faced done, I can now start on the
easy part - the rest of the miniature.

Interregnum: Blast from the Past

While cleaning up and reorganizing my workspace, I came across something that I hadn't thought about in a long time - three of the first minis I ever painted.

Then and now
I was twelve. They are from a TSR D&D boxed set, and I painted them with Testors enamel paints. They've been rattling around in the bottom of one of my mini cases for a long time.

It shows me that enamels are pretty tough.

They're the three on the left. The two on the right I painted up last year.

I think there might have been a modicum of improvement, but I'm not yet at the level I want to be.
