The Markshire Minis Page is a blog about painting miniatures, creating cool bases for them and customizing mechs, monsters or characters.
I use common craft paints from AC Moore, Michael's or Walmart that I find on clearance or it's a color I don't have.
I tend to buy most of my minis via Reaper Miniatures online but we also troll local gaming stores including.
A group of us get together regularly for Paint Night and a Movie. We gather around a large table, paint, and watch a variety of movies.
I jump around a bit when painting figures. Sometimes you get stuck while trying to determine colors or schemes and "is that flashing or part of the figure?" So updates and comments will bring back old figures to the foreground of the blog.
