I really want to play Numenera. So much so that I`m considering running an online game with random people.

At this point Thursday could be good. Were noodling around with a Fantasy Hero game for Thursdays.

Flatting may not be the sexiest stage of painting miniatures but it's an important foundation to a well-painted miniature.

Attention bloggers: Remember to have a point. I've just taken a second run at an article where I'm trying to express my opinion on when it is and isn't appropriate to give feedback on people's work. Not a second draft. I wrote a few drafts several months ago and am starting from scratch again. I just gave it up because I finally realized that I was completely lacking a point.

Which is the point to this post: If your post isn't working it might be lacking a point.

Sounds like they used the same binding company the text book people used when I was in school when we'd slowly peel off the clear film from our books to create patterns on the covers.
I think the books sticking out of the slipcase is intentional, so you can grab them easier.
The books certainly seem expensive but I think it's the right way to go in this case. Since the rules are free make the books a premium item. Too bad they missed a bit on the points you mentioned.
Hi guys, Apologies for the late post as I did say I'd get something up yesterday but held off hoping to do a bit of a review of the N3 rulebook. I haven't really had much of a chance to do that though so I thought I'd throw d...

Assembled and primed my first Batman Miniature Game figure. This is Frank Miller Batman. Clean up and assembly was a pain and I managed to miss some mold lines.

Casting was no the best, especially on the gauntlets.

Hopefully I can overcome these challenges to have an amazing paintjob. I plan to go all out.

As I was taking this picture I was so happy thinking I only had the orange bits left. Then I remembered the guided missile launcher I left separate for ease of painting. I completely forgot to add the highlights and shade for the khaki. Hopefully I can recreate the colour accurately enough to match.

Good article.  I've got an ork Stompa that I'll more than likely be airbrushing if/when I get one at some point - the model's simply too big to paint entirely by hand, I think.  

I'll also add that there are a number of airbrush tutorial videos on Youtube that will come in helpful as well, because you can see what's happening a little more easily than in pictures(at least in how the airbrush is being moved, how the paint is coming out, etc).

Imagine having every colour of Vallejo or GW paint. Expensive, and many colours would dry out unused. Imagine doing the same with only 11 colours.

Thanks. I've noticed a problem with the paints I am using. They've been fine for painting army style but when I try to paint to a higher level the gloss makes it very difficult to judge blending smoothness.

Last night I played a great game of Infinity at Boutique FDB but I broke my own "painted models only" rule. As punishment I am going to paint the offending miniature before I go back to Batman.

Interesting property of Golden High Flow Acrylics is that they are a glossy paint. Makes it hard to tell when the surface has dried.

As I paint this Infinity miniature in my quick army style I wonder why. Or rather, why am I not painting this as well as I can? On one hand I want to have my painted force on the table. On the other, I really think painting Infinity miniatures to the fullest extent of my abilities is rewarding and something I'd like to do.

The answer to that question is because the two are mutually exclusive imo. We both know if we paint every miniature to the best of our ability the reality is the number of painted miniatures available to game with will drop dramatically. I honestly don't believe you can have both; a compromise always has to be made in order to have an acceptable throughput of miniatures from purchase into game.
A better pursuit is to spend some time coming up with a method which results in minimising the compromises but maximises painting efficiency and honing your skill with that approach. I guess what I'm advocating is finding your own personal 80/20 approach that is both satisfying to paint, but has enough output to satisfy your gaming demands.
Will probably take a bit of trial and error.
