Hello everyone, my apologies for the absence. It was an unexpected and unwanted sabbatical unfortunately. Almost a month ago, the electricity went out in my apartment and apparently it knocked out the motherboard in my computer too. In a further twist of bad luck, Chicago was hit with rioting like many other cities in the … Continue reading Scibor Project Finished and 40k Started
I had intended to discuss my experience with Scibor in my previous post but found it was easier to make the topic of its own post. This week, I have the time and space to really delve into it so let’s talk about my experience painting them and look at some past projects and what … Continue reading In Pursuit of Scibor Dwarven Glory

Finally back with hobby progress and really it is just the completion (or at least very near done) Farseer from a couple of updates ago. I think this guy has ended up being a bit of a palette cleanser and while I’ve been yearning to paint MESBG stuff the last week or so, its been … Continue reading The Wisdom of the Eldar
As I mentioned in my last post, I have been working on something that is display quality and outside of Middle Earth. I actually started this hobby by painting Warhammer and 40,000 before LOTR was released and while I quit in high school and doubt I’d ever play it again, I have a good painting … Continue reading A Triumphant Return to 40k?
