The Weekly Update - Wednesday, June 20th, 2016 - Better Late Then Never!

All silvery, with the hatch inked in.
A little 'used, with one owner'; the neat hole above the
hatch is where somebody took a shot at us...

There's been a lot of real-world stuff happening, some good and some not so good, which is why I am so late this week. The tubeway car is done - at least this particular model - and we're going to move on a bit. I may do another tubeway car, 'newer' looking, but right now I'm thinking about a station to go with the new underworld tiles...

I've been asked by a regular reader about how I paint figures, and I'll be starting a series of essays on this subject as the week continues. What I thought I'd do is follow a group of miniatures through the 'commissioning process' from the time they arrive here at the house through to when they appear in a game. I am taking photos as I go - finally!!!! - and I hope you'll find this interesting.

In the meantime, here are the blogs of two friends who have what I think are great approaches to using miniatures in their games:

More to come!
