Sometimes I think I go too far with muted color schemes. I always prefer them for something like Anastasia here instead of painting the spy in bright and garish colors but it doesn’t translate to the table top nearly well. The sculpt wasn’t my favorite by far and I probably wouldn’t have painted Anastasia if I Read more about Anastasia di Bray[…]
Leisynn probably lived on my painting desk in various stages of completion for close to a couple of years. I started and stopped him a number of times as I picked up other projects until I decided to finally buckle down and finish him up. Although it didn’t photograph well I was pretty happy with Leisynn’s Read more about Leisynn, Mercenaries Mage[…]
As interesting as the scenic base the stock Epic Eiryss is perched on is, it illustrates one of the biggest problem with pre-attached scenic bases. None of my Protectorate models were mounted on anything resembling urban bases, so using eEiryss stock would mean the base not fitting in with the rest of my army. It’s not Read more about Eiryss, Angel of Retribution[…]
I worked on the Shadow Priest, another figure from the old D&D Chainmail line, on and off for a while as a side project. It was originally meant to carry a shield, but I gave the shield to the a Death Cleric I painted from the same line as part of a weapon swap conversion. The scepter was Read more about Human Shadow Priest[…]
I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I think I’ve already made my biggest critique of this figure in a previous WIP post about it. Working all the metallics reminded me how much I hate painting them. I always look at each miniature Read more about Hierophant[…]
Although it’s a very dynamic pose, I wasn’t as much of a fan of Valeros after assembly as I thought I would be. I picked it – like many of my miniatures – up to use as a character in an RPG. Even games where we don’t use miniatures I tend to do go out Read more about Valeros, Iconic Male Human Fighter[…]
I’ve been on hiatus from playing Warmachine and Hordes for a quite some time now and although my painting has slowed because of that it hasn’t stopped completely. I did fall off the website update bandwagon though, and that’s something I aim to fix. Content-wise I’ve started uploading miniatures I’ve painted in the past few years. Read more about Updates?![…]
Absylonia sports quite a bit of detail that takes painting well. She’s very similar to the Forsaken in that respect – made up of different design elements of different models. It makes her relatively easy to paint as there’s not really anything “new” to the Legion about her but the discord of her design stands out on Read more about Absylonia, the Terror of Everblight[…]
I painted Rhoven and his Exemplar honor guard up at the tail end of my Protectorate collection. I’ve only fielded them once or twice since they were first released, and as such they kept getting pushed back to the end of my painting queue. But as PP’s release schedule slowed the past couple years I Read more about Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard[…]
If you’re a gamer, you’ve heard of Deus Ex. Released over a decade ago, it has earned countless awards and accolades. It also combined a number of gameplay elements that resonated with me personally: open-ended obstacles, stealth-based gameplay (remember Thief?), experience-based progression, and a dystopian cyberpunk setting.
Although Invisible War was a decent game, it failed to live up to its name as a Deus Ex sequel. The game wasn’t bad but in an attempt to simplify many of the mechanics of the original Deus Ex it removed much of what made it unique. So the question commonly asked on the internet was… would Eidos Montreal create a worthy prequel to the original Deus Ex?
Yes. Yes they did.
