STONE COLD LEAD, RBG Aenglish Footmen

Stone Cold Lead recently posted pictures of their beautiful renditions of the Aenglish footmen from Red Box Games.

PAUL BONNER, a tutorial

A friend of mine recently directed me to a great article by Paul Bonner on painting and the creative process on the Muddy Colors website.  I’ve read the article several times, and it’s already impacting my painting.  I’m currently working on the crow goblin from Imbrian Arts, and when I share pictures in a week or so you’ll likely see some influence from Bonner in my color choices.  At least, I hope that comes through.

Speaking of Mr. Bonner, if you’re not familiar with his work or are already a fan, I can’t recommend his book enough.  Tons of inspiration awaits inside!

Hydra Miniatures, line-up 01

I decided to post this for a few reasons.  The individual photos of Jane and Rocky are a bit over exposed, and this gives you a better idea of what they look like in life.  It’s also helpful to see how the models compare to one another in terms of size (to the tops of their heads, for example, the warbot is 64mm and Jane is 32mm).  Finally, I just think they look great all together like this.

Be sure to click on the image to see a much larger photograph.  And enjoy!
