Great New Online Magazine

This is a really terrific new online magazine - Wargames Painting and Modeling. I just download issue 1 and read through it. There are some of my favorite painters writing about how they do such amazing work. I can't wait for the next issue!

Send out your Warg Riders!

I have finally finished up the first 6 Warg Riders for Lord of the Rings. The are cool plastic models that go together very easily, and like most of the LoTR figures, they are a breeze to paint. Here are a few individual pictures.

Some don't like the body seam on the neck of the Warg. I don't have a major problem with it, the picture above is probably the most noticable of the bunch.

Painting Tutorials

Wow! This is really cool! This blog has a great tutorial on painting in Black and White. I would have never thought of this!

There is a cool tutorial on caveman painting too.

Iron Warriors

This is a unit of Iron Warriors that I painted for my friend Tom. Tom has been unnecessarily patient. I think I took on this painting commission more that 2 years ago. Granted, I have some really good reason for not getting around to finishing these, but still, I should be done by now.

These guys turned out better than I expected but they are still not very good. I have a very bad primer coat and I should have stripped them and tried again. At least I should have bought new ones and done them right. Tom likes them, but he is very nice and would never tell me they suck ;-)

Only 20 or so more to do!
