True Scale Prototype Figure

The last year and a half of my life has been a living nightmare. If you read my Year of Hell post, this event and other events that came as a result of that nearly destroyed my marriage and my family on top of all the other problems. However, things are slowly improving. I’ll leave it at that. Let’s get this […]

True Scale Intermission

UPDATE June 4: I’m working on the true scale tutorial now! Almost done with the first article on the legs. Sorry about the delay for the next article on true scale. I haven’t given up. I’m waiting for my bits order to arrive. I have everything except the fresh terminator legs and torsos I need to demonstrate every step of the process from scratch. I opted for bits rather than a full terminator kit since i have those bits hanging around already. The vanilla terminator kit is rather lackluster anyway. I have several 6th edition marine kits and I already purchased my 32mm bases. I do have a demi-squad of five true scale marines in various stages of completion, one of […]

True Scale Space Marines – Part 1 – A Survey

My growth as a hobbyist has evolved rather quickly over the last couple of years since I joined the ranks of table top wargamers. When I first got into Warhammer 40000 I was excited in the social aspects of gaming, namely hanging out with good friends and playing a quick round of a seemingly interesting game. However, after I got […]

Heroic Scale is Dead, Games Workshop – A Prologue

Games Workshop, I have some terrible news. In approximately 2010, heroic scale died due to being old and out of date. It was arguably in a catatonic state for at least five years previous. Unfortunately, very few people will miss it. Despite this tragic news for the gaming community, you, Games Workshop, should feel a relief because you are the foremost maker […]

Ferrus Manus, Primarch of the Iron Hands

Ferrus was the first Primarch I painted. My wife bought the miniature for me as a Christmas gift. Ferrus Manus is Primarch of the Iron Hands Legion, one of the original twenty Legiones Astartes created by the Emperor of Mankind before the beginning of The Great Crusade.   Ferrus was not “difficult” to paint. I use that term loosely because painting a primarch […]

Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor’s Children

Art and writing are what this blog is all about. For a long time I’ve done little of either. I’m going to kick off the first official post of this blog with a miniature I completed a few months ago. I’ll be featuring more of these as I get them photographed and presentation ready. Before moving to Alabamastan I worked at a Game/ Comic book shop that became one of the best experiences of my life. I met good people and genuinely enjoyed my job. I haven’t looked fondly on a job since I was in high school. During my time at the game store I became immersed in tabletop gaming and was seduced by the allure of Games Workshop’s […]
