There Be Tigers

This is a dusty sort of story.  It’s about a real place somewhere in Eastern Oregon.  It’s true when it needs to be and that’s what matters, dear readers.  It has holes in it.  What of it?  It’s a rendition, rambling and purposeless.  It is not a warning.  Too late for that.  It’s a hypothesis,Continue reading “There Be Tigers”

‘Hammer Bashin’ Wif da Boys Part 1

Ok, this is pretty fun. I’ve got my brother in town for a few days and he came bearing gifts. He filled a suitcase full of Warhammer sprues. He’s got a killer Ork army that he plays with so most of the sprues are packed full of great parts. If you aren’t familiar with Warhammer,Continue reading “‘Hammer Bashin’ Wif da Boys Part 1”

Stranski Girl

My next project is on the bench. I’ve been drooling over some of these kits for awhile and I finally pulled the trigger. I picked it up from Industria Mechanika and it arrived in two days. Take a look at some of the short run kits they sell. I’m not being paid to say that,Continue reading “Stranski Girl”

Completed – An Ancient and Terrible Dice Tower

Welcome back, folks! I’m glad to have this dice tower wrapped up! It provided a lot of challenges and required me to use materials and techniques that were new to me. I’ve put a ton of photos on this post so I’ll just jump right in. Descriptions will follow underneath each photo as a how-to.Continue reading “Completed – An Ancient and Terrible Dice Tower”

Spare Parts Bin

I thought I’d throw together something real quick. It’s been a couple of weeks of hectic work and I missed my self-imposed weekly deadline. I’ve started going back to school for digital media and I’ve spent the last four weeks learning HTML and CSS. It’s changed quite a bit since I last did it inContinue reading “Spare Parts Bin”

Completed – Bones and Honey

The last of the villagers had abandoned the hamlet that afternoon.  With them went the dogs and the livestock.  The cats, however, always managed to be missing when it came time for the villagers to ride out of town, wagons stacked high with household goods.  This, of course, was no accident.  The cats bled intoContinue reading “Completed – Bones and Honey”

Go West, Young Man

“Go West, young man, go West. There is health in the country, and room away from our crowds of idlers and imbeciles.” “That,” I said, “is very frank advice, but it is medicine easier given than taken. It is a wide country, but I do not know just where to go.” “It is all roomContinue reading “Go West, Young Man”

An Ancient Terrible Tower – Part 1

This venture was recommended to me by a friend.  He’s looking for a dice tower to use while playing Ancient Terrible Things.  I’ve never played it, but the artwork looks awesome, so I readily agreed to the project.  One drawing shows a stony cliff with a skull carved out of the rock.  With that pictureContinue reading “An Ancient Terrible Tower – Part 1”

Completed – Heavy Freight

The mud sucked at the wagon’s wheels, persistently clawing at its contents.  Argument could be made that the mud had greatest right to the cart’s contents, having until recently laid claim to the bounty it now held.  As dogged, though, was the coach’s driver.  He of the lead and the lash.  He coaxed the pairContinue reading “Completed – Heavy Freight”

Heavy Freight Part 1

I am slightly modifying a 1/35 German kitchen trailer from MiniArt.  I’m dumping the kitchen equipment and replacing it with a balsa wood trailer.  You’ll find out what’s going on it soon enough! I’m using XPS foam for the base.  It will house the horse and cart on a muddy trail.  To get a nice,Continue reading “Heavy Freight Part 1”
