Pluggin' Along...

So we're closing in on the end of the year. October and November seem to have flown by, and Christmas is right around the corner. I've had my hands full with terrain commissions, which can't be discussed until the material has been released to the public by the respective clients. But rest assured– there will be some cool terrain pics coming down the pipe early next year.

I've also got another round of Iron Kingdoms RPG conversions in the latest issue of No Quarter Magazine, so check out the article (NQ#45 hits the shelves today). I'll have pictures up on this site in a bit.

Skaven Update

My opportunities to work on personal projects have been few and far between, but I've been able to squeek out a few hours here and there to paint up my Skaven Globadiers.

More detailed shots can be found in my Skaven Gallery.

Kickstart My Heart

There have been some Kickstarter campaigns popping up in the past week, that I'd like to help promote:

Sam Sedghi and the guys at Games & Gears launched their Kickstarter project for their line of modular game tables, with interlocking textured panels and felt borders. They can be built to size for your gaming needs, whether it's a small RPG table or larger wargame board. Check out the Kickstarter and their Facebook page!

Adam Poots has also begun his Kickstarter for the Kingdom Death game which, to me, looks like an interesting hybrid of RPG and tabletop game, and has some of the nicest miniatures in the industry. Here are links to his Kickstarter and Facebook pages.

With the Kingdom Death environment represented as oasis of lantern light in the never ending darkness, I think it would be sweet to see the game played on a Games & Gears table with that solid black border representing the darkness surrounding the encounter area.

So throw these guys some love (or, you know, cash) if you dig these projects!

The Liebster Blog Award

I've been nominated for a Liebster Blog Award! What's a Liebster Award you ask? It's a favorite blog award for up-and-coming sites with fewer than 200 followers. If graced with the honor, you're supposed to nominate 5 more blogs. Not quite as nefarious as a chain letter, since you're basically spreading the love and promoting other blogs that you like and that your readers may find interesting. But I heard about this one girl, who's blog was nominated, and she didn't pass it on, and the next day, she drove her car off a dock, and a shark ate it. True story.

So, thanks to John at 1000 Foot General for the nomination! (Now I feel guilty about not updating the blog as often as I should.)

My nominees for the Liebster Award (and some of the blogs that I follow) are:

Tercio Creativo

A Spanish blog with some fantastic terrain and spectacular miniatures for the game 1650.

Trulls Fantastische Welten

This is a great site for terrain inspiration. Lots of tutorials, great photography of the finished pieces. Some of his work puts me to shame; I can't believe he doesn't have more followers.

Unite All Action

Another pretty cool hobby blog, featuring a lot of 40K Ork conversions and scratch built vehicles.

Robert Atkins Art

I've been a fan of Robert's work on the IDW G.I. Joe comic for years. His art blog is pretty frequently updated with sketches and whatnot. Always good stuff.

Cianty's Tabletop Wargames Blog

Lots of cool terrain, models and great photos of it all. I can't see how many followers he has, so I'll just assume it's under 200.

Good luck, guys, you're all winners in my book!

'Til next time!
