More Geeky Hobbies

I’ve been trying not to write on Sundays. So instead Sunday afternoon has become “craft time” with the kids. They are all painting up their own Warmachine armies too. This is my latest, and he’s looking pretty good. iPhone picture doesn’t really do him justice either. Much nicer in person.

  1. Do you do non-metallic metals? I never bothered. All my swords and armor were black with dry brushed metallic paint.

    • The only metallic on that guy is the top shoulder bits where I used brass. Everything else is just regular paint. I’ve tried doing full on NMM, but I’ve not been able to figure it out yet.

  2. Have you looked at the Reaper Kickstarter?

  3. I’ve got a good sized Khadorir force; all metal but one jack.

  4. I’m sure he’s very sweet, in person.

  5. Have you seen the huge disappointment that is War Room? Guh. Between that and the fact that most of the other gamers in my group want to do WH40k with the new edition out, I’m not sure I’ll be spending a lot of time in the Iron Kingdoms until the RPG is out.

    • I haven’t gotten it yet, but I’ve seen that it has a ton of issues. I’m not an early adopter though, plus I like using cards. :)

  6. I love the minis! Not because I have any clue how they’re used in gaming, but because I love tiny figurines. I’ve been an old lady all my life. And I love that you’re painting with your kids. What a fun project. Kudos to you, dad.

    Off topic, I thought you might find this amusing:

    It’s mind-boggling. How is Romney not beating this guy by double digits?

  7. Ghoul over at HandCannonOnline has some excellent video and written tips that have helped me. He paints mainly WarMachine and Hordes.

    Be warned, though, you can spend an afternoon once you get started.
