Month: April 2015

Results of Poll on April 22nd – It’s a Random Encounter with Genestealers!

See what I did there? Yeah. Anyways, the results for my first poll attempt are out and the public has decided. Priority posting goes to the Space Hulk Genestealers and the Random Encounter! dwarf miniature after the showcase of the Lychguard which I hope to have published sometime next week, if not on Monday as scheduled. It seems my business schedule has finally started to clear a bit and I can normal working hours again – so I want to make the best use of what little time I may have.

Here’s the result page. For a time I thought the Maulerfiend would prevail following the Tyranids but fans of Random Encounter emerged quickly. Overall the poll got 32 hits which is not too shabby for the first attempt. Hoping for a better population pool to assess next time!

I’m planning to have the Genestealer posts consolidated into batch sessions as there are 22 of them plus their Broodlord and have the Random Encounter! mini as a more focused series where I practice some techniques I feared using. Exciting times I reckon, so stick around for a nice serving of painting.

Review and Showcase: Salt Water Arachnoid Giant (S.W.A.G.)!

Welcome to my review of the Salt Water Arachnoid Giant! This is definitely one of the best kits I’ve seen in quality or complexity compared to GW and similar miniature manufacturers. Due to the awesome details and showcasing opportunities I thought it would be nice to look at it a little closer. Take a look at the details of this kit after the jump.
