My Geeky Hobbies 4

I started painting minis last year. This link is to my first ones:  http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2011/09/28/my-geeky-hobbies-3-5/ 

I’ve gotten a bit better. These photos were just taken on my desk using my iPhone, which makes them kind of grainy. I really need to build a light box.

These are from various companies, mostly from Valiant, and all of them are for my Legend of the Five Rings campaigns. Painting minis is what I need to do when I need to just unwind my brain.

These are really good Larry. Well done. BTW, I love the whole L5R RPG storyline you’re doing. I used to play L5R a lot and reading your story makes me want to play again

Totally OT, but I just finished the E-arc of Dead Six. Bloody nice work, I must say. And very different from both Monster Hunters and the Grim Noir.

I tried to get into that when I was a kid, I never had the patience for it, plus my hands were too awkward for the fine detail, but seeing those makes me want to get back into it.

I paint minis too. I mostly do Warhammer (fantasy and 40k) and a little Wyrd games on the side. What techniques do you use? What colour do you undercoat with/ do you dry brush or use washes etc?
I love the hobby, very relaxing and rewarding.

BTW: Love the basing. I’m gonna have to steal that tree idea.
